Job Description:

The opportunity Reporting to the Senior Director, we have an opportunity for a Commercial Real Estate Appraisal Consultant in Toronto. You will work on best-in-class client accounts focused on market research, data auditing, and quantitative analysis. You will uphold the high standards of Altus Group, deliver excellent work as a Consultant and play an essential role building and nurturing client relationships, conducting appraisals and delivering analyses. In addition, you will play a critical role conducting onsite property inspections and appraisals, collaborating and coaching an experienced Analyst. What's in it for you Exposure, mentorship, and career growth. Whether you come from an appraisal organization or financial institution, you are looking for a work-life balance and a tangible career path. You are seeking an opportunity to further your AACI candidacy and work under the guidance of a supportive mentor. You want to gain visibility in the industry through appraisal of quality assets, presentations to executive teams and interaction with key clients. This is a significant step toward career growth that includes working on increasingly high-profile clients independently, on more complex projects and a step up to a Senior Consultant or a Manager. As we grow, the need for new, innovative leaders with genuine team-building skills to move up and over into different areas exists. What you will do:
  • Prepare accurate appraisal reports. You will draft accurate appraisal reports using the latest market information and practitioner knowledge, including the financial models, qualitative and quantitative market analyses, reconciliation and conclusion section, and final property value.
  • Conduct market research. You will research and collect data from internal databases, third-party sources, land use planning designations, development applications, comparable land/building transactions, and the latest market information related to the property under review.
  • Conduct data audits. You will audit and enhance the quality and usability of data collected and entered into internal databases (i.e., Altus Tools, etc.). You will analyze new data entered for anomalies or trends.
  • Conduct quantitative analysis. You will complete financial models using Excel/Argus to build quantitative analysis and generate valuation models using industry-standard methodologies. You will apply the Income or Direct Comparison Approach and make knowledgeable adjustments to analyze a property’s future cash flow and net present value; derive a value indication for a property by comparing similar properties that have recently sold.
  • Conduct property inspections. You will independently perform general property (land & building) inspections to validate site specs (building type, description, land use, etc.), take measurements, photos, etc., to be used in client reports. You will attend more difficult/complex property inspections with senior staff to develop your skills further.
  • Development of internal and external relationships. You will nurture client relationships to extend contracts, up-sell, cross-sell and secure long-term opportunities. You will manage ongoing client communications, resolve issues and escalate to the next level of management as required. You will attend company initiatives and industry events to engage external networks and grow internal relationships that facilitate information sharing and expansion of service offerings.
  • Coach. You will audit and support the work of junior team members, offering guidance on data gathering, sharing constructive feedback on data quality, and acting as a point of escalation.
You will have:
  • The education and experience. You have a degree in Commerce, Economics, or a related field, and you are pursuing your AACI designation. You have 3-5 years of progressive experience in the GTA market providing advisory services and valuation consulting.
  • The technical skills. You have excellent financial modelling skills in ARGUS and Excel. You can learn new tools and teach others how to use the latest technology.
  • The analytical skills. You have strengths in research and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data.
  • The consulting skills. You have excellent written skills and can formulate comprehensive appraisal and consulting reports. Your presentation and communication skills are outstanding, and you can build relationships, gaining the trust of your clients. You are a team player who can function autonomously and fit in at both the client site and your home base.
  • The drive. You can take the initiative and be resourceful, operating with a high degree of integrity, honesty, and ethics. You are available to work flexible hours and travel locally for inspections in your own vehicle.
