Hello and welcome to our new website. We are pleased to announce the launch of Kearns & Langeveld, a new appraisal and valuation firm focusing on going-concern special use properties.
We want to take a minute to introduce ourselves in a casual way so we can better connect with you on a personal level. Kearns & Langeveld features Michael Kearns and Colin Langeveld as its founders. Both Southern California natives formed a friendship at the University of California, Riverside bonding over music and culture, parting ways to pursue their professional industries only to be reunited several years later which begun a decade long professional working relationship culminating into the start of Kearns & Langeveld.
Mike, a second generation appraiser, had been going on site inspections since he was 13 and knew his future was sealed doing what he loved. The passion for precision, accuracy and a right job well done was imprinted into him by his father, James Kearns, a prominent appraiser in the world of economic trauma and damages valuation with Bell, Anderson and Sanders. His In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, camping, off-road driving, skydiving, and indoor wind-tunnel flying

Prior to a career in appraisal and valuation services, Colin was an active researcher and experimenter with a special interest research group Experimental Research Acoustics Studio (E.A.R.S) at the University of California, Riverside with a focus on psychoacoustics. After graduation he sent off to the University of Edinburgh Institute for Music in Human and Social Development then bounced back and forth across the pond to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Labs to complete his graduate degree. After competing the Masters in Science, Colin took up a consulting position at Alzheimer Scotland, designing cognitive memory therapy programs focusing on late stage Alzheimer Disease care. A series of newborn nephews and nieces brought Colin back in Southern California to not miss out on the fun - therein he reconnected with Mike and the rest, as they say, is history.
In his spare time, he enjoys driving race cars, spending time traveling with his family and friends, scuba diving and his biggest joy: raising his young son Sebastian with his wife Kim and their dog Bentley.
We look forward to providing you with the best service we can and hope to foster a relationship spanning decades to come. We are always a phone call away - please don't hesitate to give us a ring or drop us an email.
