About Us

We're experienced appraisers at your service.

Timothy Simon (Tim) started Simon Company, Inc. in 1992. Ever since our inception, we have been providing real estate appraisal services to the Central Valley, CA.

Tim was born and raised in Hanford, California. He started Simon Company, Inc. to provide high-quality appraisals to customers in his hometown. For the past 25 years, our company has prepared real estate valuations for local governments, banks, health care providers, attorneys, and many other clients.

In 2017, the California State Controller’s Office appointed Tim as the Probate Referee for Kings and Tulare Counties. Subsequently, in 2018, Simon Company, Inc. became Simon & Hower, Inc., when Jacob Hower, MAI, took the lead in the business. Although Tim is no longer part of the company, he continues to be a knowledgeable resource.

Simon and Hower, Inc. is now comprised of three full-time appraisers - Jacob Hower, MAI, Jeremy Hansen, and Mark Myers. Collectively, the firm has 30 years of appraisal experience.

Christine Shepherd manages the office and handles daily operations. As a firm, we believe understanding your market is critical to providing competent valuation services, which is why we live where we work.
