My dad, Butch Redmile, started his own appraisal company - H.D. Redmile & Associates - in 1993, after Barnett Bank disbanded. He maxed out a credit card, opened a store-front, and the rest, as they say, is history. Stewart Shaw was his first hire and soon after my sister graduated college, she also joined the company. Redmile Appraisals - the same family business - is still owned and operated by Maggi and Shelley. Stewart and I still do appraisals for Redmile Appraisals.
