Our History

It all started with Shakespeare.

As an aspiring scholar of English literature, Anthony L. Alderman discovered that his extensive research and writing skills were a powerful tool for creating appraisal work studies. He teamed up with an appraisal company and spent subsequent years honing his skills and experience while building relationships as a commercial appraiser. In 2013, he founded North by North West, a full-service appraisal and consulting firm specializing in commercial property, eminent domain and convenience stores. Based in North Carolina, the company would achieve great success with property owners, financial institutions and government agencies, including a deep relationship with the Department of Transportation. Over the years the company expanded their market to Tennessee, Virginia and South Carolina, and grew a powerful team of licensed researchers, analysts and appraisers. NxNW is now recognized as one of the most trusted commercial appraisers in the area and continues to forge into the future with a mission of providing best-in-class services to customers everywhere.
