Stanley Xavier, Jr.
President and Chief Executive Officer
Stan Xavier is President and CEO of Correia-Xavier, Inc. With nearly 30 years of experience, Stan has appraised thousands of agricultural properties, including almond, pistachio and walnut orchards; large, integrated dairy and livestock operations; wineries and vineyards; processing, packing and storage facilities; tree fruit and citrus; and all types of open land throughout California, as well as Oregon, Nevada and Arizona. Over the course of his career, Stan has had the unique opportunity to value agricultural properties throughout some of the most historic land development periods in California, including the explosive development of the Northern and Central Coastal winery regions, the rapid expansion of the nut industry, the recent contraction of the California dairy industry, and the continued trend of urban growth into prime agricultural land. With the dairy sector currently ranking as the largest economic value producer in California, C-X has devoted considerable efforts toward developing a strong dairy and livestock appraisal practice, and Stan is considered one of the foremost experts in the valuation of dairy and livestock operations in the state. Stan has performed appraisals for a vast array of clients, including nearly all providers of agricultural financing; publicly and privately-held corporations, complex partnerships and family-owned operations; major investors including insurance companies, pension funds and REITs; as well as federal, state and local governmental entities. He is highly experienced in performing appraisals for a variety of purposes, including financing, purchase and sale transactions; estate and tax planning; foreclosure and bankruptcy; divorce and partnership dissolution; discounted minority interest valuation; conservation easements and eminent domain.
In addition to appraisal and consulting services, Stan has been involved with litigation and arbitration support, and served as an expert witness. He is a frequent speaker at industry events, and has been published in various industry publications. Stan is a graduate of the University of California, Davis and is certified by the state of California as a Certified General Real Estate Appraiser.
