The Keystone Story

In the journey of every narrative, there's genesis. Ours unfolds in 1991, when Rick Kenny, MAI, SRA, started Kenny and Associates. With clear vision centered on integrity and quality, he laid the groundwork for innovation over the course of several decades.

In 2022, we underwent rebrand, emerging as Keystone Valuations, marking our commitment to driving change in the evolving appraisal landscape nationwide.

Our team thrives in an environment where camaraderie, humor, and innovation interlace seamlessly. Principles of integrity, respect, teamwork, excellence, and innovation form the bedrock of our culture, guiding every interaction and decision.

Our expertise spans diverse domains, from commercial appraisals and tax appeal work to government contracts, historic buildings, and mineral valuation. Each appraisal is testament to our dedication to delivering nothing short of excellence, paired with industry-leading turn times.
