kyle marengo oh
Certified Residential Appraiser
Kyle Shinaberry

I have a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from The Ohio State University, where I majored in History. I have always been interested in trying to better understand the events that shaped who we are today. I have a wide range of work experience, including 8 years in management at UPS. The analytical skills I developed through my studies/ management experience have been instrumental in helping me to understand appraisal principles/practices and interpreting market trends. I joined the JAP team in 2017. I have performed various roles with the company over the last 6 years, all of which have helped me to better understand the valuation process and the importance of delivering credible assignment results. I recently earned my Certified Residential Appraiser license. I’m currently working to obtain the home measurement specialist certification, the green home certification and becoming a member of the Appraisal Foundation.
