About Israel Yaacov Real Estate Appraiser Ltd.
The firm’s history goes back to 2000, in Hadera, after the real estate appraiser Israel Yaacov graduated from Tel-Aviv University’s Real Estate Appraisal Program and completed his two years of internship in a real estate appraisal firm, and decided to embark on a new and exciting journey. With time, Israel realized that, in spite of his professionalism and the clients’ satisfaction, he would have to do something in order to expand his client base – and so he did. In 2006, he moved with his family to live in Ra’anana, where his firm worked for two years. Afterwards, as the move proved to be very successful, Israel moved in 2010 to the Herzliya Pituach’s Business Park, where the successful firm resides to this very day, and employs appraisers, economists, and engineers.
