Ludwig Corporation is respected regional boutique appraisal firm. The firm was started by Henry Ludwig about 100 years ago in South Philadelphia. Henry served in WWI and after his service to our country became a well respected real estate professional. Real Estate appraising became a profession during the Great Depression when local real estate professionals were called upon to assist banks with their lending. Henry was the go to person in his local community and served as President of the South Philadelphia Counsel in 1928 and served as the President of the Philadelphia Board of Realtors during WW II. In 1932 Henry brought his younger brother Edward into the firm after he graduated from college. For 20 years they operated out of an office at 8th and Wolf Streets, in South Philadelphia. In the early 1950’s Ed opened a new office in Northeast Philadelphia, a rapidly developing area for families after WW II. Ed became the first president of the newly formed Oxford Circle Counsel of Realtors. Ed had two sons, Robert and Barry. Robert is a well-known, and respected residential real estate appraiser. Barry continued on the foundation of the many years of local experience and is a well respected commercial real estate appraiser and real estate counselor.
