Amy Hoppe is the Vice President of the firm. Undoubtedly, her last name is recognizable by the firm’s name. Her father, Harley Hoppe, is not only a former King County Assessor, but the founder of the firm. Amy began working at the firm from the onset.
Her knowledge began in-part from learning hands-on from her father, which proved to be invaluable insight of the Assessor’s office. In addition, Amy has advanced her knowledge by taking numerous real estate appraisal classes and continuing education classes. Various commercial agencies have had her speak publicly regarding property tax appeals for both commercial and residential property owners and or management companies.
Amy has been a guest on local talk radio shows regarding how to appeal property taxes. Her father instilled in her the importance of providing their clients with strong customer service and thus she has followed this not only for herself but with her staff.
Ashley Dixon has been with the firm since 2010. Her organization and customer service has been extremely invaluable to the firm. Due to her high work ethic and customer relations, she quickly moved up in the office to her current roll as executive manager, overseeing all scheduling of hearings, new and old client in-takes, all applicable deadlines and ensuring the client receives his/her property tax refund. Most recently she has taken on the responsibility of researching and submitting petitions for refunds for clients who qualify under the applicable County guidelines. Her continued success in the firm has been due to her determination to provide our clients with unmatched customer service.
Dale Hockenson is the newest member of the team. His prior background was in the financial industry and construction sales. The knowledge in both of these areas helped him understand the costs to construct newer properties, both for residential and commercial properties.
His expertise in the financial industry assists our commercial clients develop projections and budgets for future property tax liabilities. His knowledge also translates to the success he has before the County Board by providing a strong income analysis of the property under appeal.
Waverly Cassill has been with our firm since 2008. She is a licensed real estate broker and lead residential appeal specialist for the firm. She began selling real estate in 1994, which has given her extensive knowledge and understanding of the real estate market throughout King County. Without her wealth of experience, she could have not made the shift not only selling real estate but assisting homeowners in property tax appeals appear seamless. In part, her success in residential appeals not only comes from her market knowledge but her high degree of professionalism and customer service, which is unparalleled in the industry.
