Mr. John M. McCracken has over 50 years of experience in real estate. After beginning his career working with VDOT and what is now Bank of America, Mr. McCracken went on to form John McCracken & Associates, which became a nationally recognized commercial, institutional and residential appraisal practice. The firm went on to become a premier eminent domain specialist practice, working throughout North Carolina and other states on highway, utility and municipal projects. During that time, Mr. McCracken oversaw the work of firm’s professional staff, providing insight, consultation and direction to both the staff and clients, on projects, assignments and court cases. Mr. McCracken has had extensive testimony experience on eminent domain matters throughout his career. He has further spent time in real estate development, including commercial redevelopment and residential development.
Mr. McCracken now works to bring his vast array of knowledge, insight and experience in property valuation and court room testimony, as a consultant and advocate, to attorneys, owners and others involved in matters of eminent domain action, or for other general consultancy needs.
Though no longer a practicing appraiser, Mr. McCracken maintains multiple designations, certifications, and affiliations, including with the Appraisal Institute and the Counselors of Real Estate.
