Valuations attuned to current market conditions are critical in determining the best course of action. We can provide Broker Opinions of Value (BPO) or review appraisals to provide accurate and timely market value guidance.


Amber has been appointed Receiver of hospitality properties in 25 state court’s across the nation in order to provide time-critical preservation of collateral asset value.


Amber can step in quickly within 24-48 hours anywhere in the country to manage a distressed asset with complete oversight and control. Whether management is under Amber’s receivership appointment, on behalf of a bank’s REO department, or direct for a borrower at a bank’s request, Amber is always in a supervisory role and will be your primary point of contact.


Amber is one of the largest and most experienced hospitality brokerage firms in the U.S. with over one billion dollars and 500 hotels in past transactions. At a lender’s request, Amber can also work directly with a cooperative borrower to help them sell their hotel so a bank can avoid the cost and complications of legal remedies and having to assume ownership of a hotel.
