A Family Tradition

Delivering unsurpassed client satisfaction is more than the Forsythe Appraisals mission. It is a Forsythe family tradition with roots stretching back to 1940, when Al Forsythe invited his sons, Jerry and Bob, to develop the appraisal aspect of his growing real estate business in northeast Minneapolis. Eventually,  Forsythe would also develop commercial and industrial expertise, including appraising machinery and equipment.

By 1963, Jerry had earned his SRA designation and became owner of Forsythe Appraisals. During the 70s and 80s, his wife, Charlotte, and several of their children became appraisers—earning Forsythe Appraisals’ recognition from the Society of Real Estate Appraisers for an unprecedented number of designated appraisers coming from one family.

In 1987, Tim Forsythe bought the business from his father, and expanded the company into greater Minnesota and major communities from Boston to Seattle. Tim’s brother, John, was named President in 1997 and in 2011, John became President and CEO.

Today, Forsythe Appraisals, LLC is owned and managed by John and Tim Forsythe, together with John and Jeff Turner, founders of the private investment firm Hillcrest Capital Partners (HCP). Located in Minneapolis, HCP was established in 2002 as a private investment firm to make control investments in high quality businesses based in the Upper Midwest.
