For over 30 years, Michael P. DeChant has worked hard to excel in the residential real estate industry. With the combination of extensive experience and a focus on building strong customer relationships, the DeChant name has become synonymous with trusted quality and guaranteed results.

After earning his sales license at age 21 and a brokers license by age 25, Michael worked in construction, development, sales, and management.

In 1981, he entered the appraisal field as an independent appraiser in the Washington metropolitan area market, earning an SRA designation from the Appraisal Institute.

He soon opened Michael P. DeChant and Associates, a firm specializing in residential real estate appraisals. During the next 15 years, DeChant and Associates grew to become the largest residential firm in the market. The firm completed well over 100,000 appraisals for banks, institutional lenders, mortgage companies, attorneys, and private individuals.

In 1996, Michael sold his company in conjunction with a venture capital company in an effort to facilitate a national service organization to provide all mortgage related services via the internet. For the next 5 years Mike was instrumental in helping this company evolve towards their goal.

In 2001, Michael re-entered the appraisal business as a sole proprietor. He joined forces with Cathi DeChant, his wife of over 30 years and a licensed appraiser with over 20 years experience in the industry, to create DeChant Appraisals and Realty Services, LLC. The company specializes in appraisals of new construction - including custom homes, project analysis and end loans for the resulting sales within new communities.

In late 2004, the couple moved their residence and appraisal operation center to Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Currently, DeChant Appraisals and Realty Services, LLC serves the Northern Virginia, Suburban Maryland, Maryland Eastern Shore, and Delaware markets.
