Meet Our Team
A Successful Team Beats with One Heart
Definitive Valuations was originally established in April 2007 as a sole proprietorship. After appraising for 4 years as a staff appraiser, Natalie decided to open a practice of her own and Huntsville, AL was the area she chose to open shop! The company has since grown from a single person shop to a dynamic team of appraisers and support staff. The company was recently restructured as the valuations branch of Definitive Home Solutions Inc., which is a full service residential real estate services company. Definitive Valuations can assist you in your valuations needs, while Definitive Home Solutions can provide you with consulting, including options for a quick sale of your home and Definitive Realty Group (under Legend Realty) offers full real estate listing and buying agent services.
Natalie was born and raised in the Dallas, TX suburbs and grew up the daughter of 2 appraisers so appraising came naturally when she decided to re-join the workforce after being a stay at home mom for 5 years. She has a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and is currently a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser in Alabama. Natalie began her own appraisal practice in Meridianville, AL in 2007 and has grown the business from a single person shop, to a successful practice completing over 60 appraisals per month. She continues to live in Meridianville, AL with her husband and three children. Natalie enjoys reading and is passionate about children and children’s programs focused on protection and education, lifting those in need and making sure they know they can reach their potential!
