Jeffrey M. Key, MAI, P.E.

If it involves appraising real estate, Jeffrey Key is the logical choice. Jeff comes to appraising by way of the civil engineering sector. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from California State University, Fullerton and Master’s of Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, after which he spent several years with an international engineering and construction firm. He also has taught at the university level. A retired registered civil engineer in California and Alaska, he joined Herron in 1985. The undeniable skills of analysis, problem solving, and technical writing honed in his prior life transferred naturally to the appraisal of commercial and industrial real estate.

Jeffrey supervises a team of experienced professionals engaged in appraising a wide spectrum of property types around the country. He is an expert in such areas as gas stations, convenience stores, car washes, and hospitality properties and has his finger on the pulse of values for industrial buildings, offices, retail centers, and subdivisions, all of which are part of his regular day-to-day duties at Herron. Jeff’s involvement in litigation support centers on going concern properties that include an element of business value.

During his illustrious career, he has worked on the historic Capitol Records building, the Record Plant recording studio, and the new headquarters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in Hollywood. Jeff lives in Fullerton with his wife and has two married daughters.
