Andy Ruffner, MAI, SRA
Even prior to obtaining his bachelor's degree in Economics in 1996, Andy had already spent significant time around his father's appraisal office, learning from the ground up a business that he simply enjoyed and that seemed to come naturally to him. After successfully completing what seems to be a catalogue of appraisal courses, experience requirements, and a demonstration report, he earned the MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute. He would later complete the designation requirements for the SRA designation.
Committed to modern appraisal best practice and advanced technology, Andy has refined the system that sets RSG Commercial, Inc. apart as the vendor of choice to some of the largest banks from around the world, but also to the many great local and regional institutions in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. In addition to his extensive experience producing appraisal reports, he also reviews for several major regional banks and prepares many consulting assignments and marketability studies to local and regional investors, developers, and owners.
At present, Andy is working on completing a Master’s Degree in Real Estate at Georgetown University, as well as progressing with a CCIM designation.
Andy has always loved the grappling arts and still actively competes in grappling tournaments, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions, judo, and mixed martial arts bouts. Andy is a two-time silver medalist at the Pan American games. He manages to balance work with his sporting activities, volunteer opportunities, an outreach program, and his three wonderful sons and wife, Kaet.
