What My Clients Are Saying


Atty. Michael Ponticelli

I am an attorney from Illinois and needed a Wisconsin property appraised for a client. The property has some peculiar aspects and, also, some potential governmental, private entity, and commercial issues that made it difficult to find comparatives for evaluation. I searched on-line and found Cape Appraisal Service on Angi’s list. Next, I went on-line to see what others who had used Cape Appraisal were saying about the services received –e.g. google, etc. The reviews I found were all 5 stars and, in particular, gave special praise to Fritz Cape for his work product. I called Fritz and explained the project and engaged him to perform the appraisal. The Appraisal Report I received was one of the most professionally thorough and comprehensive I have seen. Fritz went the extra mile to establish the worth of the property but was more than willing to discuss the basis of the conclusions arrived at as well as suggestions on how the evaluation could be enhanced. I heartily recommend Fritz if you need a professional appraisal that is full, complete and able to stand legal scrutiny.

Mr. Cape was very professional and thorough in providing retrospective appraisals for our families. He took the time to meet with us and fully understand our needs, and remained communicative and responsive throughout the process. All the “i’s” were dotted and at the “t’s” crossed. Highly recommend.

I have been honored to work with this outstanding gentleman for over 20 years. Fritz is the consummate professional, quick to respond and consistently “spot on” with his valuations and opinions. His knowledge of his field is extensive and his appraisals are well thought out and always well supported by relevant comparables and narrative. What’s more, Fritz is ready to come to court when needed to support his opinions and makes an excellent witness. Every lawyer’s dream! I can’t say enough good things about Fritz Cape.
