Apprise, a Walker & Dunlop, Inc. company, announced its strategic expansion in the Midwest region, adding a dynamic team of five seasoned industry experts. The leading provider of comprehensive commercial and multifamily real estate valuation and consulting services continues to grow as demand increases throughout the country.
Led by Alex Hoenig, MAI, who joins as a Regional Managing Director for the Midwest, the new team brings a wealth of experience and expertise to further strengthen Apprise's presence in the region. Joining Alex are Andy Kopek, Scott Peirce, Scott Lunan, and Sean Haar, who have a combined 60+ years of experience in commercial property valuation and consulting, including property appraisals, market and feasibility studies, and tax appeals to support the company's mission of delivering outstanding valuation services.
“I am thrilled to welcome our new team members, who are set to elevate our presence in the Midwest. Their collective expertise in multifamily and commercial valuations not only deepens our capabilities but broadens our reach, promising significant growth and enhanced client services," said Meghan Czechowski, senior vice president and head of Apprise. 
The new team brings extensive commercial and Agency multifamily expertise, complementing Apprise's established platform and expanding its commercial valuation capabilities in the Midwest. This addition also bolsters Apprise's expertise in manufactured housing in the Midwest. With prior coverage in states such as Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan, the addition of local coverage in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota gives Apprise a stronghold in the region. 
"What attracted me to Apprise was the seamless integration of service excellence, technology, and team collaboration,” said Alex Hoenig, regional managing director in the Midwest. “I am excited to contribute to this dynamic environment and work together to deliver outstanding results.”
