About John G. Cleminshaw, Inc.
A Legacy Within the Mass Appraisal Industry - The J.M. Cleminshaw Co. was founded in Brookpark, Ohio by James Cleminshaw and his four siblings in 1923. The J.M. Cleminshaw Co. was the first to introduce the concept of private, professional appraisal firms performing reappraisals of entire taxing jurisdictions - thereby blazing the trail of mass appraisal as we know it. It didn't take long for the J.M. Cleminshaw Co. and its charismatic leaders to become the authority on all issues pertaining to ad valorem appraisal.
Today, John D. Cleminshaw represents the third generation of a family whose name is synonymous with Mass Appraisal from coast to coast.
