Solidifi, an independent real estate appraisal management company, has announced that it has ‘joined forces’ with Kirchmeyer & Associates in a deal that will position Solidifi as the third-largest independent provider of residential real estate appraisals. Moving forward, the combined entity will operate under the Solidifi name and will be based in Buffalo, N.Y.
‘Following a $22 million financing in 2012, Solidifi is in growth mode, and Kirchmeyer is an important part of our overall growth strategy,’ says Jason Smith, Solidifi's president and CEO. ‘It is the ideal fit for Solidifi.’
‘Solidifi's technology and broad appraiser network will complement our own network, and I and my team are excited to continue to service our current and future customers with these extended capabilities,’ says James Kirchmeyer, CEO of Kirchmeyer & Associates.
