Peter Dittmar, Idaho & Wyoming Certified General Appraiser
Pete has been a partner at Granite Creek Valuation since 2010 and has more than 10 years of appraisal experience. He specializes in appraisals of ranch land, conservation easements, and other partial interests. In 2006 after working for the Jackson Hole Land Trust for seven years, Pete saw a lack of conservation easement appraisers in Western Wyoming as an opportunity to start a new profession in the appraisal field. Throughout his appraisal career, he has worked on a wide range of appraisal types, from commercial to residential, and he has gained experience on expert witness cases and other consulting projects. Today, Pete uses his wealth of knowledge of conservation easements to focus on appraisals of ranch land and conservation easements in Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming, but is also available for a diverse range of appraisal assignments.
Pete has lived in Jackson for more than 15 years. He was drawn to the beauty of the Tetons and the Jackson Hole area after graduating from Middlebury College in 1999. He and his wife Barbara Allen enjoy their time with their daughter Maren, son Sam, and dogs Artie, Osa, and Gus.
