Letter From The Appraiser

My name is Raymond McIntyre and I would like to welcome you to the Highlands County Property Appraiser's Web Site. We hope that you find this site helpful in answering your questions regarding the assessment of properties in our county. In this office, our goal is to provide you with the highest level of public service possible. Our desire is to serve your needs in an effective and efficient manner. We are always open to new and better ways of providing the service you want and we encourage you to give us your comments.

I am thankful for the opportunity to serve you as your Property Appraiser. I started working in this office in 1984 under the late J.W. "Billy Martin". Mr. Martin hired me that year as agricultural appraiser. I started learning the job and was certified as a Florida Evaluator in 1987. When Mr. Martin made the decision to retire in 1988, I decided to seek election as Property Appraiser. Again, I thank you for your support in electing me to this office to serve you. I enjoy working for you.

I am a sixth generation resident of Florida and a third generation resident of Highlands County. I feel that I am part of this county and my heart is with the people who live here. I am committed to serve you to the best of my ability.
