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.
