Meet the Member: Rocky McElhannon

Where do you live and who do you work for?
I live in south Charlotte. I am employed by Colliers International Valuation & Advisory Services

How long have you been appraising?
I started as a residential appraiser in 1985 and moved to a commercial in 1987.
Who was your supervisor as a Trainee and how did you meet them?
Jeff Parkhouse, MAI with Indian Valley Appraisal Company in Harleysville, PA. I met him through a family friend. I lived in Greensboro, NC at the time. He was willing to give me a chance, so I moved to PA and learned the commercial side of appraising for eight years before moving to Charlotte in 1995 to go to work for T.B. Harris, Jr., & Associates.
What is the most unique property you’ve appraised?
Rockingham Speedway, the Epi-Center, and the Charlotte Convention Center
What is a fact about you, outside of work-life, that people would be surprised to know?
That I am a Bonsai enthusiast
What is the biggest benefit you’ve seen from your involvement in the NCAI?
The key to this question is “AI”. The Appraisal Institute is the world leader in Appraisal Education. The North Carolina Chapter of AI is one the most active, strongest, and respected Chapters in the Country. If you get involved with this chapter you will be rewarded in ways you can’t imagine. You will make friends that you have a common bond for the rest of your life. When we get back to normal and you can attend a quarterly chapter meeting you will understand what I mean.
