As a retired certified real estate appraiser, I was interested in the background of candidates running for this office. Tim Reynard is an amazement as he is not only a certified state appraiser but also a MAI (Master Appraiser with Appraisal Institute). The amount of experience and education these designations requires takes years to acquire. As this county is going to explode in growth in the very near future — Suncoast Parkway and recent articles about county being best to move to — he has the background to handle all types of property that will have to be appraised so that taxes will be fair across the board.
