Where do you expect to invest? The appraiser will be licensed at the
state level and will likely focus on a small area within the state.
You might also need the attorney to be local to where the property is
or where you are (and they will find a counterpart in the other location
if out of state).
Have you considered joining or at least visiting a local RE investment
club? Very likely that all the local resources you will need will be there
or other investors can refer you.
If you do want to invest out of state then suggest where you might be
looking so you can get local recommendations. Granted you do not
need all the folks in place before you start your search.
