THE MOUNTAINSEED STORY

MountainSeed is the result of a long-time business partnership and friendship between David Green and Carl Streck. Before starting MountainSeed, David and Carl owned, developed and managed real estate. Their first client was a community bank needing help with their appraisal process. Out of that challenge, MountainSeed was born.

In the beginning, there were two separate entities - Mountainseed Advisors and MountainSeed Appraisals. The third member of MountainSeed’s leadership trio started when David and Carl asked for help from a lawyer, Nathan Brown, to organize the companies and guide them through compliance hurdles.

Today Carl and David are grateful to have a company that has been recognized as the best appraisal management company to work for and one of the top appraisal management companies overall. MountainSeed is dedicated to valuing its people, their families and their community.

“MountainSeed has always been great to work with. Also, when a quick response is needed, they work hard to respond accordingly.”

“MountainSeed continues to provide great feedback and quality work (to our bank).”

“We were able to eliminate a full-time reviewer position with the use of MountainSeed, with improved review delivery times and no reduction in review quality per our regulatory exam.”
