He was requesting if we can make an appointment with them on the property and possibly discuss the hiring the services of a professional real estate appraiser.

How Real Estate Appraisers Determine One's Real Property Value

Previously, I was discussing to an old lady about her properties located in Pampanga.

The community or neighborhood of those affected areas are recently revitalized with the return of number of the former residents in their homeland which is mostly agricultural and are located in barrios.
