Our History

We have been serving real estate decision makers throughout Iowa and the Midwest for over half a century. Founded as Bud Potts and Company in 1958, Iowa Appraisal and Research Corporation was incorporated in 1961. In 1990 the company was purchased by Fred H. Lock, an MAI-designated real estate appraiser and former lender. With 52 years of industry experience, Fred leads a team of highly skilled appraisers who are focused on providing comprehensive, impartial and accurate real estate appraisal services for a variety of property types to numerous clients.

In 2012, Iowa Appraisal joined the firm of BCC Advisers. Specializing in business valuation, merger and acquisition consulting, and litigation support services, BCC can offer clients a suite of services complementary to real estate appraisal services.
