Real Estate Consulting & Commercial Appraisal Services

Jonathan B. Banz, MAI

Jon has lived in the Pacific Northwest from an early age.  He attended Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon where he completed a bachelor's of science degree and met his wife Katie.  He began his appraisal career in 2002 with Powell Valuation Inc.  Jon received his MAI from the Appraisal Institute in December of 2012 after completing the required course work, comprehensive exam and traditional demonstration report.  In January 2014, Jon and Katie purchased the business and both operate as Principals of Powell Banz Valuation, LLC.  They look to continue the family business tradition, which has spanned the past 40+ years.  Jon continues to appraise a wide variety of commercial property with a focus on industrial properties. 

In his spare time Jon enjoys spending time with his wife Katie and their Great Danes, working on the continual renovation of the couple's 1910 farm house located in Salem's Fairmount neighborhood and listening to as much new (and old) music as time allows.
