About the Presenter:


Michael McTighe has a BA in Computer Science and Economics from UC Santa Barbara. After working in the tech industry for a number of years, in 2007 he founded Home Tax Experts.

This company uses his computer background to analyze residential assessed property values relative to neighborhood comparable home sales. By attending appeal board hearings, discussing property assessment with county appraisers, and observing the counties' property assessment process, Mike has developed a keen understanding of the California property assessment process.

His client base includes nine California counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Placer, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Solano, with two offices (Mountain View and Sacramento).
