About Glen Kangas
Glen grew up in the San Gabriel Valley and graduated from Temple City High School. He then went on to UCLA and obtained a degree in Political Science. After that, he stumbled into a career as a Real Estate Appraiser having found his true passion. He has been an appraiser for over 30 years appraising homes all over Southern California with a wide range of experience including REOs, Luxury, 2-4 unit, ADU, TIC, and Cooperatives, and is an expert witness in Los Angeles, Orange, and Santa Barbara counties.
After starting his own business, GA Appraisals, Inc. in 2004, he worked for many years on his own enjoying the daily variety from being an appraiser and exploring the food scene in the areas he worked! In 2020 he developed a passion and a process for Mentoring and Training new appraisers in the industry. He has now joined (with his Trainees) True Footage, Inc. a Nationwide Fintech Appraisal Company on the cutting edge of Appraisal Modernization.
As part of his passion for mentoring new appraisers, Glen recognizes the lack of awareness in the public about the career, especially in disadvantaged communities. As a result, he has made it his mission to let people know that the career exists and is a great opportunity for someone with an analytical mind.
