Rick Singh is the first state certified appraiser to ever be elected as the Orange County Florida Property Appraiser. Almost 20 years ago, Singh became a field appraiser for OCPA where he worked his way up through the ranks of the agency, and in 1999 he became a State-Certified Residential Appraiser.
One of Singh’s first priorities after being sworn in on January 13, 2013, was to ensure efficiency. Using the integration of new technologies and innovations, property appraisal assessments are now more accurate and are done more quickly and efficiently in the field.
During Singh’s first year in office, OCPA returned more than $51 million to the Orange County tax base by vigorously pursuing fraudulent claims.
Singh is a U.S. Army veteran and was assigned to the 1st Infantry Division Mechanized. He has lived in Orlando for more than 25 years. He serves on the board of the American Lung Association and is a member of the Rotary Club of Orlando, the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Orlando Economic Development Foundation, the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association and the IAAO.
