Jose Diaz, Diaz Realtors

I have worked with Robert Lutz for over 20 years.  I can’t think of an appraiser who gives more attention to detail, and is as thorough as Robert.  He is always available when I have a valuation question and returns my calls in a very timely manner.

Robert is very knowledgeable, and is very helpful in sharing his input in appraisals. 


Joanne Gardiner, Broker, Advantage Realty 

Bob Lutz and Hayward Appraisers is a very reliable appraiser for specialty appraisal such as point in time appraisals for estate settling. Bob does other types of appraisals, too. Check him out. He is efficient, knowledgeable, and sincere.


Nick Datt, Home America Realty

I highly recommended Mr. Lutz, one of the finest, most qualified appraisers that I have worked with over the years.

Danielle Clark

Mr. Lutz, thank you so much for all your help!  You are awesome and you rock! 


Gayle Johansen 

I recently had Mr. Lutz do an appraisal on my mother’s condominium. I was very impressed with his thoroughness to get an accurate and honest review. We needed an appraisal done soon and he rearranged his schedule to accommodate me, which I very much appreciated. He has such integrity that I would highly recommend him. 


Steve Login 

Thank you for the completed appraisal of our property. I highly enjoyed watching you work. Your meticulousness is at a level I could only hope to attain. Thanks again!


Joan Mack

Hi Robert, you are amazing.  Thank you for EVERYTHING that you have done for me.  What a professional.  Your willingness to go to Sacramento to appraise the duplex is VERY appreciated. Thanks again for EVERYTHING.  You have really gone out of your way to accomplish this task. The appraisal report is excellent in detail.

It’s not very often that a product or service exceeds your expectations but the home appraisal that Mr. Lutz submitted to me was far more detailed then I was expecting. He thoroughly researched the property and other listings in the area to get an accurate value of the property. Great service!


Danielle Clark 

Robert, you are amazing. My family and I are lost for words. You have gone above and beyond for us in this matter. You did more than what was expected. Your passion for your career shows. Keep up the amazing job you are doing. Thank you again so much.

I had the privilege of working with Mr. Lutz when he appraised a property my clients were interested in buying. Due to offers being reviewed the next day, Mr. Lutz fit us into his schedule the very next day, which saved my clients a lot of money and time. Mr. Lutz is by far the most courteous and professional appraiser I have worked with. Most importantly, he really knows the Hayward market! I highly recommend his services. He is a valuable resource to the real estate services that I provide in my business.


Wellington C.   

Mr. Lutz performed a drive-by appraisal for my father’s trust effective over 5 years ago that was complete, comprehensive, timely and fair. It was a pleasure doing business with him. I highly recommend Hayward Appraisers.



Mr. Lutz performed a very thorough appraisal of my property in March 2015.  Difficult to pull off, because there were no actual “comps” available at the time.  It would be redundant to say that I’d use this service again, because I did already!  A nearby unit was sold recently (October 2015) and I went back for an updated appraisal.  Quite happy with the service, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it yet again if I need to.

Robert was great to work with and I would definitely use him again. He was responsive to emails, phone calls, and very professional throughout the whole process. What really impressed me was what happened after he completed the appraisal. A month after the appraisal, my tenants informed me that they were moving. I needed photos of my house to start advertising but I couldn’t find any. Then I thought of contacting Robert at Hayward Appraisers since he had recently been there to take photos. I offered to pay him for the photos but he said it wasn’t necessary and sent them to me the very next day! His willingness to help and go above and beyond is what I found to be something a lot of businesses are lacking and I really appreciated it. I was not only satisfied with the job I paid Hayward Appraisals to do, but also for their excellent customer service afterward!



Mr. Lutz was very professional. He worked with me to provide our appraisal and he kept in contact on a timely basis. He is very detailed and very knowledgeable in his field. I have recommended him and will continue to recommend him. I will gladly call on him again if I ever need an appraisal again.

I have used Bob Lutz of Hayward Appraisers on 2 separate occasions and each time have been thoroughly satisfied. He is very friendly and accommodating and will provide a thorough analysis of the property and location. He follows up with a comprehensive report as well as comparables from the neighborhood. I would highly recommend.


Dick Modzeleski, Owner Broker Rainbow Funding & Realty

Robert has to be one of the most thorough and hard working appraisers in the industry. He is so conscientious and courteous that it is no wonder he has the endorsement of myself along with so many of his colleagues. I would use his service without question, and have known Robert for these past 15 years to be one of the finest appraisers in the business.


Donald Hanes  

I didn’t know anyone at all in this area. Fortunately, I had a friend who knew of Mr. Lutz. Thanks for the referral R.J.


Dick Modzeleski, Owner Broker Rainbow Funding & Realty 

I have used Robert in many areas of appraisal from single family which I believe him to be fair and honest and efficient. I have also had Robert appraise multi units and when brokering these all these loans we never had a reason for a follow up from the lender on any of his work. I continue to use Robert Lutz whenever the opportunity arises. He is the number one appraiser that I know of.
