2021 Women in Real Estate
Chicago & Midwest
Head of valuation and managing director for Apprise
Has helped grow Apprise team from seven employees to 52
Regarded as standout leader in a male-dominated field
In a male dominated field, where only 25% of appraisers are female, Meghan Czechowski is regarded as a standout leader. She was brought to appraisal startup Apprise by Walker & Dunlop in January 2020 because of her well-established leadership presence in the industry. She was previously at Cushman & Wakefield for more than 15 years, during which she was charged with expanding the company’s business to focus on multifamily executions.
Czechowski is the head of valuation and managing director for Apprise where she manages a national team of multifamily appraisers, with a focus on expanding the business line and national footprint. She’s a critical member of Apprise’s leadership team and as one of Apprise’s top three leaders, she has three regional managing directors and a number of appraisers nationwide reporting to her. She also directly supervises valuation for financial reporting and Apprise’s affordable practice. Czechowski also serves as managing director of the Midwest region.
At Apprise, Czechowski is known for consistently bringing excitement to the start-up. Serving as the face and voice of Apprise, she is well versed in the future of tech and tech advancements in the industry. She has played an instrumental role in building the Apprise platform, helping to grow the Apprise team from seven employees to 52, and expanding the platform from only four markets to a coast-to-coast presence in a little more than a year.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Czechowski as one of the Chicago 2021 Women in Real Estate Award winners. Connect CRE’s Women in Real Estate Awards honor the achievements and inspirational stories of women who have reached respected positions of leadership and play key mentorship roles for others.
