Gordon CohenAppraisal Manager

I started out as an owner of a building inspection company and as an adjuster working with several local and national carriers and after 22 years ended my being an executive general adjuster and then became a public adjuster. My specialty is large loss residential, commercial and heavy equipment claims. In 2008 while working for an international third party administration company handling claims we lost one of our large accounts. This lead to almost 30 of being left without a job within days afterwards. At that time, I formed General Building Consultants and as well as continuing to handle claims started writing estimates for contractors and showing them how to capitalize on getting the carriers to pay based on our industry knowledge of how to write and how to present the estimate to the carrier. I have an extensive and long background in appraisals for carriers as well as insureds. I have served as an umpire and a court appointed umpire many times.
