What happens when a former golf pro decides to change gears ... and become not just an appraiser, but an expert witness appraiser? What happens is Graham D. Smith, CDA, Certified General Appraiser. Happily married to his wife, fellow appraiser, and business partner, Michelle, he is the proud father of two children. And, yes, he actually worked as a golf pro, having studied the industry at the Myrtle Beach campus of the San Diego Golf Academy.
But in 2009 he made the switch to practicing as an appraiser. These days, he and his wife head up their own firm, McCarthy & Smith Real Estate Services LLC—and expert witness appraisal work is a key component of their success.
