David A. Holt, MAI
David Holt founded Agri-Comm Appraisal, LLC, which specializes in agricultural appraisal. Appraising wineries and vineyards is within Mr. Holt's area of expertise and competency as he has over 40 years of experience in the Real Estate industry, and over 20 years in the appraisal of vineyard and winery properties. Further, Mr. Holt holds a Certified General Real Estate Appraiser License, which is the highest license granted to appraisers by the State of California, as well as the designation of MAI from the Appraisal Institute.

Based on Mr. Holt's knowledge of vineyard topics and values, he has been invited to speak to a variety of appraisal, real estate, lending, and industry support groups regarding the vineyard and wine industry, and has provided appraisal instruction and mentoring to groups and appraisers within the Farm Credit system while employed there.

The American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers, which confers the appraisal designation ARA, requested, and Mr. Holt provided, the Napa vineyard narration and values for the annual "Trends" publication from 2005 through 2008.

Mr. Holt has authored and presented portions of the Northern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute's Vineyard Valuation Seminars in 2004, 2006, 2008 & 2015. Mr. Holt also co-authored and presented “Valuing Vineyards, Trends and Outlooks” at the 2016 Lake Tahoe Conference hosted by the Sacramento Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. All of these seminars were approved for continuing education by the California Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers as well as the Appraisal Institute.
Complete list of David Holt's Qualifications & Experience

"Dave worked for American AgAppraisal for six years, gaining a thorough understanding of agricultural property valuations. We were sorry to see him leave to start his own appraisal company in 2008. When we need to hire outside appraisers to meet time sensitive deadlines, Dave is at the top of our list."
