Today marks my one-year anniversary as your Martin County Property Appraiser. I would like to thank you for allowing me to serve you this past year. It has been a whirlwind and I have thoroughly enjoyed working on behalf of the property and business owners of our great community!
During this first year, my priority was laser focused on customer service and implementing a robust community outreach agenda. Our goal was to educate property and business owners regarding property exemption benefits, website tools, and helpful resources available for them. To accomplish this, we partnered with print and digital publications to distribute monthly articles, expanded our social media platforms with daily informational postings, reached out to numerous organizations who invited us to speak with their members, produced monthly educational videos that now appear on our new YouTube channel, and made dozens of enhancements to our website to better serve you.
Utilizing our new Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) system, my office blazed new trails of efficiency in all aspects of property appraisal. For example, we implemented a software application called Just Appraised, which automatically uploads changes in ownership information when a property sells. This software significantly reduces manual data entry time, creates workflow efficiencies, and displays sales information much sooner on the Property Appraiser’s website.
I will continue to deliver outstanding customer service that you deserve and expect. I will be accessible to you and will stay committed to helping our community understand the property valuation process.
I am proud to work alongside my talented professionals. Through hard work, knowledge, and dedication, we accomplished so much in a short amount of time to better serve you!
I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, and blessed new year.
