  • Dear Fellow Taxpayer & Voter,

    August 18th a big decision is going to be made for the future of the way that property assessments are going to be made in Collier County.

    Will the Collier County Property Appraisers Office continue to be led by someone with proven appraisal experience? Will the Office continue to be led by someone with proven managerial and supervisory experience and leadership?

    I have served Collier County as your County Property Appraiser for over 29+ years. I hope you agree, I have done so with the highest degree of honesty and integrity. I do have the proven appraisal experience, managerial and leadership skills necessary to continue to run your office. I humbly and with respect ask for your vote on August 18th.

    Sincerely,
    Abe Skinner
    Collier County Property Appraiser

  • I am, Abe Skinner and I am running for reelection as your Collier County Property Appraiser.

    I was born in Fort Myers, Florida. My wife Martha (deceased) and I have been lifetime residents of Collier and Lee Counties. We have two children, two grandchildren and two great grandchildren. I attended the public schools of Fort Myers and the University of Florida. I am also a member of the First United Methodist Church, East Naples Civic Association, and a charter member of the Republican Club of Naples.

    I truly care about this county and its future.

    My 29+ years experience on the job and my in-depth knowledge of the area is crucial in providing the level of service that Collier County deserves and expects. I, along with dedicated staff, have worked diligently to provide the latest technology and the highest level of customer service possible. I am very proud of the office website and want to continue to provide up to date, easy to use computer access to all Collier County Properties. We record more than 1,000,000 computer access hits per month. This system was developed under my direction and has been shared with all the public and state/local governmental entities at no cost to them. I am continually looking for better and more efficient ways to ensure fair and equitable appraisals.

    This is your office and I work for you. I maintain an open door policy and welcome your input. I look forward to your continued support and feel honored that you have trusted me to serve as your Property Appraiser. When reelected I will continue to serve with pride. I hope I will be able to count on your vote in the upcoming August 18th primary election.



    Sincerely,
    Abe Skinner
    Collier County Property Appraiser
  • Thank you for 29+ years as your Property Appraiser. Throughout the years I have been involved with both the technical aspects and management of all appraisal operations. I have held the position of Property Appraiser since 1991 and have been instrumental in developing the appraisal systems currently in use in Collier County.

    Here are some of my qualifications:

      • Member of IAAO (International Association of Assessing Officers).

      • Attend education courses each year for CFA (Certified Florida Appraiser) designation.

      • Attend school each year for CFA recertification.

      • Member of PAAF (Property Appraisers Association of Florida).

      • Previous member and past President of FAPA (Florida Association of Property Appraisers).

      • Served on numerous committees of both associations.

      • Attend and participate in legislative conferences.
  • During my 29+ years in office I have continually improved technical access to the County's real estate information. I, along with dedicated staff, have developed one of the finest GIS (Geographical Information Systems) in the state. We develop aerial photography each year in the county's more populated areas to collect new data and property changes that have occurred. This information is incorporated with all other pertinent property information into our enhanced CAMA (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal) system and our website that is shared with the general public.
  • I am fiscally conservative. I am mindful that every dollar spent by this office is paid for by the taxpayers of Collier County. Our office provides many services to other Collier County agencies as well as the City of Naples, City of Marco Island and Everglades City at no cost to them. This saves those agencies additional expense and duplication of efforts.
  • Our website is easily accessible and is used locally as well as throughout the nation. I maintain an "Open Door Policy" and encourage public input. This has allowed me to offer the highest level of customer service. The feedback I receive from the public and other agencies is outstanding and valued.
