“Chuck” as those who have known him for a while call him, did his first appraisal in 1971.

He received the MAI designation in 1987, the ASA designation from the American Society of Appraisers (specializing in going concern market value appraisals) in 2013, and the AI-GRS general appraisal reviewer designation from the Appraisal Institute in 2015.

In 1988, Carl started CJM Advisors. The small company eventually reached 11 appraisers including, at one time, six with the MAI designation.

In 2005, Carl was president of the Appraisal Institute Seattle Chapter, the crowning event of which was the Greater Seattle Real Estate Banquet attended by 300 including representatives from all Seattle area professional real estate organizations, NAIOP, CREW, CCIM, etc., at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency.

In 2014, Carl was named the Seattle Chapter Appraiser of the Year.

While operating CJM Advisors, Carl trained six MAIs.

In 2021 CJM Advisors transitioned into Kidder Mathews.

Carl has appraised most property types. Appraisals have been undertaken in California, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon.
