By the year 2000, Tony became the sole owner of Valu Tec. He has continued to maintain the highest standards both in appraising and property tax consulting assignments. He has worked diligently to always do what is right for his clients. Because the world of property taxes is always evolving and changing, Valu Tec also continues to evolve and change. Tony ensures all his employees stay up-to-date with legal changes, and all components of the business are kept finely tuned to incorporate any changes as they occur. Tony is an innovative leader, maintaining the highest moral integrity. This is one of the many reasons he is the partner of choice for assessors and state personnel.
