Benchmark International has successfully facilitated the acquisition of Janus Valuation & Compliance (Janus) by Class Valuation (Class). Benchmark International worked effectively with the sellers to ensure that their goals were met from a cultural and corporate vision perspective.
Janus is an appraisal management company that offers property valuation services to mortgage lenders, banks and credit unions through its network of appraisers. The company offers a turnkey solution for lenders to complete home appraisals and remain in compliance with all laws and regulations.
Class Valuation is a top nationwide real estate collateral valuation and appraisal management company to the residential mortgage industry and is based out of Troy, Michigan. The company has consistently been ranked highly in client service by several of the nation’s top ten mortgage lenders and has been recognized as a top place to work, along with receiving many other industry awards.
Benchmark International was able to procure for Janus AMC a buyer that met their goals in regards to the strategic growth of the company as well as the corporate fit amongst the management teams. Janus was engaged with Benchmark International for about a year and a half and was able to procure several interested buyers until Janus found the perfect fit for them.
Benchmark International’s Senior Deal Associate, J.P. Santos commented “The Benchmark International team is excited for this next chapter in Janus’ growth and couldn’t be happier for John Passero and the management team at Janus. This provides them with an opportunity to continue to develop their firm and achieve their goals by partnering with a firm that offers them the resources and infrastructure to achieve their corporate vision.”
