In 1999, Mr. Christopher (Chris) Mackie, CRA, P.App began his career with Anderson Preece & Associates Inc. At that time, the largest and leading appraisal firm in Central Alberta.
In February 2007, along with Mr. Ken Waters AACI, P.App, Chris and Ken formed Waters Mackie Valuations Inc.(WMV) by acquiring the (APA) offices in Sylvan Lake, Rocky Mountain House and Lacombe. WMV expanded briefly once again, adding an office in Red Deer.
Over the next 10 years, the appraisal business drastically changed due to technological advances with less of a need for multiple physical office locations and more of need to be available via electronic portals. With these changes, the offices were centralized to our Sylvan Lake location. Operating from Sylvan Lake allows effective service of all Central Alberta’s diverse communities.
In 2017, Chris took over as President and sole owner of the appraisal firm and re-branded the company to its current name.
