An Extension of System Associates sales services
After 15 years selling new and used broadcast and television equipment, Michael Ferguson — President of System Associates LLC, was asked to do an appraisal of some of the equipment belonging to a company he had done business with.
The owners of the company knew he was in a unique position to know the values of their property. After that first appraisal, an auction company requested his opinion of the values of some broadcasting and television property that was going to auction; and the company was impressed with his expertise.
Ferguson was then approached to do an appraisal for a law firm. At that point, he used his extensive experience to increase the quality of the appraisal reports to the highest standards in the business, and became a certified appraiser adding appraisals as a natural extension to his services.
