Movers Shakers: Tony Lesicka, Appraisal Institute North Star chapter

A look at the people behind the numbers in area business:


Title: Insight, principal, co-founder; chapter president

Tony Lesicka, newly elected president of the North Star chapter of the Appraisal Institute, is working to boost membership of the local branch of the global association for residential and commercial real estate appraisers.

The chapter, which covers Minnesota and North Dakota and parts of South Dakota and Wisconsin, has several hundred members. But totals have declined here and nationally in recent years, Lesicka said.

In hopes of countering that locally, Lesicka will continue the efforts of his predecessor, Frances Odenthal, to make real estate majors and other students aware of the profession.

One joke is that you get paid for your opinion, Lesicka said of property appraisal. You do, because you re providing an opinion of value. There s flexibility and work-life balance. And it s very intellectual.

The chapter also will offer new educational opportunities to appeal to new and existing members. Some courses will be from the national organization, others homegrown seminars with bankers and other parallel professionals.

Lesicka co-founded St. Paul-based Insight Realty Advisors in 2013 after working as an appraiser and for companies that use appraisal services including a developer, housing lenders and banks.

In his time at Stillwater-based Central Bank, Lesicka said, the bank grew from $350 million to $1.2 billion in assets through acquisition of failed banks whose collateral he had autopsied.

All states require appraisers to be licensed or certified to do appraisals for federally regulated lenders. Those who become designated appraisers of the institute must meet additional education and experience requirements.

Q: How busy are appraisers now?

A: Most commercial appraisers that I know are quite busy. There is a lot of activity on that side of the world. The residential side is a little tougher in that it ebbs and flows. Most that I talk to in the North Star chapter seem to be doing OK and have more consistent workflow.

Q: Why did you leave appraising to work at other companies?

A: It was a learning tour. I got to experience what the users of appraisals need and what their businesses are like. That culminated with my time at Central Bank. That was like a learning experience on steroids.

Q: What other priorities do you have as chapter president?

A: I really want to support our government relations committee. They re doing a lot of good work to help fine-tune some of the regulations that are here now. I want to make sure we re doing a lot to help our residential appraisers because they ve been clobbered over the past few years. welcomes and encourages readers to comment and engage in substantive, mutually respectful exchanges over news topics.

Our professional sales and moving staff will help you plan and execute your move properly to make your relocation as easy and rewarding as possible.

Moves are classified as local, intrastate, or interstate, depending on the distance involved.

  • Local Moves A local move is a move that takes you within a 30-mile radius of your domicile and stays within the same state. A local move may take a couple of hours or a couple of days, depending on the size and the services requested.
  • Intrastate Moves An intrastate move is one in which the origin and destination are in the same state. Hampton Roads Moving Storage can provide intrastate relocations within Virginia and with our affiliation wi th Arpin Van Lines, we can offer intrastate North Carolina relocations as well.
  • Interstate Moves An interstate move is a move that takes you across a state line.

The Timing of Your Move

We are fully aware of the many factors involved in selecting a moving date, such as closing date; lease expiration, family matters, work schedule, and restrictions of building managements. That is why we give great attention to our customers’ moving time requirements.

We will perform your move within the time frame that you request.

The Cost of Your Move

A few factors determine the cost of a move. They include

  • The type of move
  • The amount and type of goods and furnishings that you are moving
  • The distance of the move
  • The physical arrangement of the premises you are moving from and the premises you are moving to
  • Your temporary storage requirements, if any
  • Additional services that you may want

An Estimate of Cost begins with the type of move you are performing: local, intrastate, or interstate.

If the move is local, the estimator performs a walkthrough of your premises and determines the size of your move, the number of movers, and the number of hours to perform the service and any additional services requested. The estimator then provides you with an estimate. (Due to the great demand for our services, some smaller local move customers may find our prices or terms uncompetitive. Should this occur, we will be happy to refer you to a reputable competitor.)

If the move is intrastate or interstate, the estimator performs a walkthrough of your premises and arrives at an estimated weight and additonal services needed, and from that an estimate is provided.

For a free estimate, please take a moment to fill out our online estimate form or call one of our professional relocation consultants at (800) 561-2929.

Additional services include packing, crating, cargo insurance, or any other services such as these that you may require.

Your team did an excellent job and we will for sure refer you. “Being in the luxury real estate business for the better part of two decades, I find the key components of success to be stellar customer service, reliability and follow through. Always put your clients first, do what you say and always be upfront. Zuni Movers run their operation much like I run my own. Having referred them to many happy clients over the years I recently had the pleasure of using their service myself. They truly exceeded my expectations, made the move virtually seamless. I will continue to recommend them and personally wouldn’t use anyone else if given the option. John Stanaland, The Stanaland Group at HOM Sotheby’s International

My name is Mike,
I moved from a 3000 sq foot house in Laguna Niguel to Palm Desert on Dec 2nd. The movers from Zuni’s were at my house as promised. Put everything in the truck, including breaking down bedroom sets, and Pool Table. They were ready to leave LN in less that 3 hours. They arrived in Palm Desert almost an hour before they said they would.
They moved my daughter twice. same story.
They are TERRIFIC.
They took the sting out of moving for me that day.
Thank you Zuni Movers Mike Douglas

Just wanted to let you know that Mario and his crew did a great job with the move yesterday. They had a great attitude, were clean, and very careful with both the furniture and the interior of our home. In a nutshell, they were excellent to work with. Ralph Simmonds, Simmonds Realty

I called Zuni and they gave me all kinds good ideas, including convincing me not to bother renting a truck on our own for the small or soft stuff. They provide loaner wardrobes and other packing, and simply charge an hourly rate for their men and truck. I bet the national movers would never be so cooperative or helpful. Hart Borrowman

Thank you so much for providing a great moving crew at (literally) the last minute. You really came through for us when we needed help and I don’t know what we would have done otherwise. Your guys did a fabulous job and it was a difficult job too. Our daughter had many large heavy pieces that had to be carried upstairs. you guys are the best movers in the business and I’ll always count on you and your wonderful family. B.Tuckerman

Zuni did a great job moving my family in Aliso Viejo. They provided full service, including packing, dismantling furniture and moving. We needed to move in one day and they were able to accommodate with a full crew. The crew was friendly and helpful. They even stayed late to help us rebuild some furniture and help us with some minor repairs as part of the rebuild. Definitely recommend their service. Evan. M of Mission Viejo

I have had my third occasion to personally use your moving company and again I am amazed on the care and professionalism that your employees show. This a.m. I had to have four really large, large boxes (3 were 96”x24”x20” and one was 60”x90”x12”) brought from my garage which is on a totally different street level than my front door to a upstairs bedroom through a narrow two directional staircase with a high railing and a tiny landing. No easy feat I assure you. I actually wondered if it was possible to get the largest box up to the bedroom.

I must tell you that Zuni and the crew were amazing. Even though it was extremely difficult to do, they got all the boxes up there and took the greatest care with my new furniture and my walls as well. Obviously as owners you have taken the time to train your employees to the highest standards. You are to be commended.

I couldn’t be happier with your wonderful company and I will not hesitate to recommend your company to friends and clients as well.

Thank you for a job well done! Sandra West, Sandra West Interior Design
