About us

We don’t have templates — we have standards.

Stephen J. Morse, Founder and Chief Appraiser of Retail Petroleum Consultants, began his appraisal career as an intern, while attending Fresno State University. After graduating in 1993, he quickly ascended through the ranks to an appraiser role and went on to work for several national firms, including Landauer, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and American Appraisal Associates (AAA). During his time at AAA, Stephen created and managed the Petroleum Valuation Group based in Irvine CA, experience that proved useful when realizing his own vision and forming Retail Petroleum Consultants (RPC) in 2003.

Since its founding, Retail Petroleum Consultants has provided over 6,500 going-concern valuations and special use appraisals to hundreds of financial clients, oil companies, gas station operators, attorneys, and the like. Today the RPC team, led by Mr. Morse, continues to provide the highest quality service while maintaining strict ethical standards. Our trainees, appraisers, and operations team strive to maintain the integrity and greater vision of its founder.

Unlike others, we specialize in our core competencies. This has allowed us to build unparalleled expertise, powerful datasets, and a unique tech-assisted quality process. With our breadth of experience we focus on delivering the best appraisals on quick turnarounds. Clients trust us for our time-exposed data & observations that span over a decade, detailed analysis & neighborhood descriptions, and a full parallax of gas station value — litigation, insurable, projected theory, construction, sales reconciliation, etc. In addition, our clients enjoy same-day direct contact with our chief appraiser to address methodology and other nuances of the valuation.
