Steven Philip Gray, SRA, IFA, AGA, MNAA

I am a Washington State and Oregon State Certified appraiser.

I have been trained and mentored by industry recognized professional appraisers from World Savings & Wachovia. I was a staff appraiser for World Savings from 2005 to 2006, and for Wachovia from 2006 to 2008. I started my own company in late 2008 and changed the name to Porch Light Appraisal, Inc. in late 2016.

Unlike many home appraisers who market themselves to five, six, or sometimes seven different counties, I specialize in only two, Clark County, Washington and Multnomah County Oregon. This insures that I have the knowledge of the local markets which I serve and deliver accurate and reproducible results.
