RVG Joins Forces with Lake in the Hills-Based R.J. Schmitt
St. Charles, Ill. — Commercial real estate appraisal company, Real Valuation Group (RVG), continues to strengthen its work force and broaden its client base, recently announcing a professional affiliation with the Lake in the Hills, Ill.-based appraisal firm R.J. Schmitt and Associates.
"R.J. Schmitt has a long-standing history of providing outstanding appraisal services and shares our commitment to providing sound, well-thought-out valuations," said Ed Kling, president of RVG.”We’re proud to work with them and hope that we can build on our companies’ reputations for delivering professional valuation services."
R.J. Schmitt has been providing both commercial and residential appraisal services throughout Chicagoland since 1964, when the company was founded by Raymond J.

The company serves lending institutions, businesses, government agencies and individuals.
“The two companies have great synergy," said Greg Schmitt, former R.J. Schmitt CEO.”We don’t directly compete with one another and our different services will do nothing but ensure continued success well into the future."
