About VC

Bill Sirny’s career in real estate began in property management in the early 1980’s while he was still in high school. At the age of 18 he became the youngest licensed real estate broker in the state of Wisconsin, and enjoyed a successful brokerage career throughout his college years. After graduation, he took his skills to Southern California and worked with Birtcher Properties (backed and half-owned by Mitsui trading) in securing debt and equity financing for a number of signature Southern California developments. Returning to his roots in 1992, Bill took over as Director of Real Estate Services for the Gronik companies, a national firm specializing in industrial real estate, and machinery valuation and disposition. Following the death of Mr. Gronik in 1996, he formed North American Realty Advisors, Inc. (NARA) and continued to have a national presence in real estate valuation.

Fast forward to 2007 and a looming financial crisis.  A group of NARA lender clients approached Bill and asked him if he could bring his appraisal expertise into a review capacity.  Based on the input from this core group of clients, it was decided that a dedicated commercial real estate appraisal review and management firm was needed. Valuation Compliance was born and retains these same clients to this day.

Since 2007 we have grown to handle the commercial appraisal review and management process for financial institutions ranging in size from $150 million to $8 billion in assets, with clients who lend on a national and international basis.
