Ray  Shinn
Certified General Appraiser, Partner

Ray Shinn’s appraisal career began in 1987 working with Conley, Kight and Boswell during the reappraisal of the State of Kansas where he appraised and reviewed work on residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial properties. In 1989 Shinn was appointed as County Appraiser of Nemaha County. During that time he hired and trained a staff of five and was responsible for updating the county values and records to those that are required by Kansas Department of Revenue. 

In 1992 Shinn began work with Farm Credit Services of Northeast Kanas. Through the years he has developed the skills of appraising commercial properties with the likes of hog facilities, dairies, grain elevators, and feed mills. Shinn was also instrumental in modeling the new appraisal value range and product design. During that time he had the opportunity to mentor two trainees in agricultural and residential appraisals.

Shinn is an active member of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers and was formerly President of the Kansas chapter. He holds the General Certification in Kansas and Nebraska. In these ever-changing times, Ray is determined to stay current with the evolving appraisal rules, standards, and regulations.
