Article From Our Team – Jeri Wells

My name is Jeri Wells and I am a real estate consultant for Property Valuation Services. I previously spent eight years with Deloitte & Touche in their Carlsbad, CA office working as a real estate consultant. I have worked in most aspects of tax consulting from personal property to real estate, from sales and use tax to outsourcing development. I have assisted with the development of accounting software and processes so companies are capable of producing on a mass scale.

Currently, I work as part of the renal dialysis group specializing in medical offices. Though I have primarily worked for the health care industry, I have experience in all property types in the United States and parts of Canada. I am licensed in Texas and recently returned from attending several hearings throughout Tennessee and Oklahoma. On the west coast, I specialized in direct assessment evaluation. I also worked at the forefront of innovating processes dealing in assessment appeals and personal property filing to help clients, companies and counties move into the more technological age.

I have worked my entire life as an accountant in one form or another, but I graduated from Pittsburg State University in Kansas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have been drawing and painting for as long as anyone who has known me can remember. I am also an avid traveler having driven to all four corners of this country. I have been to over 30 states and more than 13 countries. I tend to rent RVs in foreign countries and drive throughout for extended periods so I can get a real feel for the environment. I was raised in Kansas on a cattle ranch that my family has lived on since the 1850s. I spent 15 years on the west coast in Portland, OR and Carlsbad, CA.

Though I started consulting with a large firm, I am ecstatic to be working in a smaller company. Only in this environment can one get a deep sense of the companies and properties we work on. With PVS, we can get a better feel for our clients and truly understand what it is they need from us. By working on a more personal level, we can be more successful in our endeavors.
