First and foremost, thank you for visiting my website. My name is Damian Gliatis and I am a Certified Residential Appraiser in Washington DC Metropolitan Area.
Safeguard Appraisals began back in 2005. Prior to 2005 there were a series of events that led to the birth of Safeguard Appraisals LLC. In 2000, my partners and I decided to purchase foreclosure/short sale properties and renovate them so we could put them back into the market for sale. While I was the project manager and daily operations expert, I had the opportunity to meet other experts in the real estate world such as certified and licensed appraisers, home inspectors, county assessors, real estate agents, and lawyers from title companies.
I was intrigued with what the appraiser’s role is and their importance in the real estate world. I decided to take courses in appraisal back in 2005, and two years following I took some more courses for a total of 2,000+ hours of experience in appraisal coursework. In 2007 I became a licensed real estate appraiser and in 2013 I passed my state exam and became a Certified Appraiser. As of today, I hold three Certified Licenses to practice in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
Besides my appraisal work I enjoy traveling with my family and doing home renovations. I have renovated several homes for my friends and family over the years. The feeling you receive when a home is transformed is priceless!
Looking forward to serve you soon.
