Meet the Professionals

Eliott F. Borris, CPA, CVA

Broker / Certified General Appraiser


Perhaps one day I’ll have a New York publicist write an introduction for me. Until then, my candid remarks will have to do.

I wore suits in elementary school, cried over getting a B in middle school, and solved calculus problems for fun in high school. I have always been entranced with learning and mesmerized by problem solving. As a professional, I am committed to teaching and being taught. I’m a self-proclaimed data scientist. On my office wall hangs an expression, “In God I trust, all others must have data.” Extracting the value of a variable through multiple regression analysis makes me smile. Properly prepared financial statements are works of art to me. Small coefficients of variance give me butterflies. If you couldn’t care less about such things, then I’m probably the person you need!

I’m a West Virginia native. I attended the University of Charleston where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. When I’m not in my office, I’m either attending a professional conference (because why not?), working on my 1912’s Craftsman home, playing with my French Bulldog (her name is Mademoiselle, obviously), or playing piano.

I started in the real estate business 10+ years ago.  I’m committed to excellence. I’m growing my team and expanding my services and geographical reach. My main professional interests are in the areas of: real estate appraisal, brokerage, and consulting.
