Ridley & Associates Appraisal Services Limited

Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants
Welcome to Ridley & Associates Appraisal Services Limited

Ridley & Associates Appraisal Services Limited has been appraising real estate since 1993.  In 2002, the appraisal division of Kernahan & Graves Real Estate Co. Limited (in business in St. Catharines for more than a century) was purchased and merged with Ridley & Associates.  This resulted in the formation of the largest real estate appraisal and consulting company in the Niagara Region. Today, Ridley & Associates offers the expertise of ten appraisers, two consultants and three administration staff to its client base.

Every appraisal assignment is directed and approved by accredited members of the Appraisal Institute of Canada and is covered by the professional liability insurance programme. Ridley & Associates typically provides real estate appraisal and consulting services throughout the Niagara Peninsula, however, we have the expertise to complete assignments throughout Ontario. Our business has extended to such centers outside the Niagara Peninsula as Windsor, London, St. Thomas, Hamilton, Kitchener/Waterloo, Brantford, the Greater Toronto Area, Kingston, Ottawa, Collingwood, Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay and Thunder Bay.


Each appraisal report is prepared in conformity with the Code of Conduct and Canadian Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice of the Appraisal Institute of Canada.  All appraisal associates and consultants are members of the Appraisal Institute of Canada.


Our client base includes most major banks, trust companies, credit unions, life insurance companies, various levels of government, courts, legal firms, accounting firms, corporations, developers and the general public.
