Since our inception in 1987, we’ve offered an appraiser-staff model that has fostered the ability for our appraisers across the country to set their own schedule while receiving a steady volume of work. Utilizing this model allows us to attract and retain the highest-caliber residential real estate appraisers in the industry with access to the latest in superior technology, technical support and benefit packages.

For our clients, this emphasizes our accountability in producing reliable, fully compliant residential real estate appraisal solutions and alternative valuation products.
