T. CHAD PLASTER, JD, MAI

Principal

I am a native Pacific Northwesterner, having grown up in Spokane and attended the University of Washington and Lewis & Clark College.  I started as an appraiser assistant with Moscato, Okoneski & Associates in 2006 and am now principal/partner.  This is a second career for me, as I spent the first ten years of my professional life as a practicing attorney.


As a commercial appraiser, I enjoy the opportunity to valuate a variety of properties and helping clients solve complex valuation questions.  I also take pride in communicating complex appraisals in a clear, logical and persuasive way.  I am passionate about providing the highest quality appraisal that can be relied upon by our clients for their needs.


Some of my biggest professional accomplishments include becoming a member of the Bar in Oregon and Washington, obtaining my MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute, being asked to join MOA as a principal/partner, and being chosen to sit on the Board of Directors for the Greater Oregon Chapter of the Appraisal Institute and currently serving as Secretary.  


In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching my son play high school baseball, road trips, spending time outdoors, waterskiing, etc.  I recently organized a monthly presentation group modeled after TED talks and gave a presentation on volcanoes.  I enjoy volunteer work, having coached youth sports in the past and currently leading a church youth organization.
