Alan R. Schwarz-Certified PA State Appraiser

I have been a resident of Smithfield Township, Monroe County since 1983. Previous to this I lived in New Jersey working as a sales representative for the German chemical company BASF. After moving to the Poconos with my wife Lynn, I decided to get into real estate. I earned my real estate license in 1985 and 3 years later earned by Broker's license.
During this period, Lynn and I had two children-Greg and Peggy. In 1990, I started appraising and worked for an Allentown based appraisal business. In 1995 I started my own business. Since starting appraising in 1990 I have performed more than 6,500 appraisals and inspections, both Greg and Peggy have graduated from Penn State University. Greg is working in Washington DC and Peggy has been accepted at Hershey Medical School while currently working at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital as a scribe in the Emergency Room.
In my earlier life, I grew up in Illinois and graduated from Western Illinois University (BS '72-'76) and later attended Northern Illinois University for a Master in Business Administration ('77-'79).
When not appraising I enjoy watching the New York Yankees, Penn State football, barbecuing and trying to sound like BB King on the guitar.
