I recently had the pleasure of working with Dave VerSluis. It was refreshing to work with a real professional who exhibited real passion and enthusiasm for his expertise. His depth of knowledge was impressive and assuring. He kept me informed regularly and through every step of the process. For Environmental Risk Assessment, Dave VerSluis is the expert to call.

If you need to know the environmental situation of a subject property, then this is the easiest fastest way to go. I gave Dave 2 physical addresses on Friday afternoon and on Monday morning his 52 page reports were in my email. They were exactly what SBA wanted. An environmental specialist stating that the risk was low. Tuesday, we had an authorization! The only way to go for me from now on!
We know from experience that Sierra has our best interests in mind. That’s something that a lot of people talk about, but very few deliver in today’s world. We know we can trust them to handle our environmental issues when the stakes are high.
I worked with Dave on projects for my organization when we needed his environmental expertise. Dave provided excellent service in the testing and reporting required for us to close the deal and purchase the property. Dave’s reporting was timely and accurate, too. I recommend Dave for your environmental testing and consulting projects.
Sierra puts the customer first. I would recommend them any time you need an effective team player you can count on.

RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment is perfect for credit unions and smaller lenders who don’t have a full-time environmental expert on staff, but want to be able to cheaply and quickly screen collateral. It’s also great for US Small Business Administration loans facilitated by Community Development Corporations (CDC’s) and Preferred Lending Partners (PLP’s).
The biggest advantage of RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment over every other desktop environmental screen is the fact that there is no possible conflict of interest. This is because of our unique “Clean or Free Guarantee”. No other consulting firm can offer such a guarantee, because the rely on upselling which can be a real or perceived conflict of interest. With our RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment, you never have to wonder if the recommendation for more extensive investigation is truly warranted.
Even better? Every RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment is provided by a 30+ year veteran of the environmental industry, so you always get the most professional possible results. This is the cheapest environmental report and the fastest environmental report available. RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment is not intended to establish a future defense against potential liability however. But it is perfect for lenders who understand the legal viewpoint that their bank is exempt from pollution lability under CERCLA, but yet they still want to assess the environmental risk of their collateral and make sure their portfolio (and their borrower) carries less risk and is thus a safer bet, and a more valuable one.
A Phase I Environmental Assessment (ESA) is always recommended if liability protection is the goal. RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment is much less expensive and much faster than Phase I ESA, however, and includes many of the same elements as the Phase I ESA. Phase I ESA can typically cost $2000 – $4000 and take 2-4 weeks. By contrast, RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment takes just a few days and costs start at just $299.00.
The best part? If we find an elevated risk and have to recommend a Phase I ESA, your RSRA – Record Search with Risk Assessment is FREE. Even if you ask us to do the Phase I ESA, we’ll refuse. You can have anyone you like do that work, and we often recommend a good local consultant to help you. We don’t even want to have the appearance of a potential conflict of interest.
That’s the “Clean or Free” Guarantee.
