About Us

Edgewater Appraisal began its service to the residential lending community in 1991, as a new branch of Budget Real Estate Appraisers, in Mount Vernon, Washington. Two appraisers opened that branch that centered in Whatcom, Skagit and Island counties in northwest Washington State. In 1993, the parent Budget Appraisers sought to change its corporate direction into mortgage lending and Richard Storgaard acquired the branch, relocated to Whatcom County, and incorporated under Edgewater Appraisal. Our present service area concentrates on Whatcom and Skagit counties. Richard Storgaard, a certified residential real estate appraiser, continues as it’s owner and president. Edgewater Appraisal is a member of the Multiple Listing Service and Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce.

Daniel J. Storgaard

danielDan Storgaard joined the firm in 1999 and quickly completed the requirements to become a Washington State Certified Residential Appraiser. Born and raised in Milwaukie, Oregon, desires for a career in real estate became evident in high school. Dan was enjoying his passion for classic and custom cars when he began his real estate education in 1994 at the age of 21. Though the journey seemed long at the time, a steadfast conviction for a career change led to his moving north to work for, and be mentored by, his uncle.

Dan, his wife, Heidi, and two young daughters live in the Laurel area north of Bellingham. Dan still loves to work on old cars, and the family is active in ministry at Christ the King Community Church in Bellingham.
