We have several appraisers of various levels in our office in the Northern California City of Brentwood. We are state of the art with all the most current and modern tools. We are a course provider with the State of California and provide continuing education as well as basic education for real estate appraisers.
We only accept new clients that can accept e-mail and have color printers. Clients must order the appraisals COD. As of June of 2003, recertifications are no longer permitted by USPAP and an updated appraisal must be ordered. We can re-visit the appraisal for a different client, if we have the underwriting guidelines and establish an "appraiser/client" relationship.
We only allow invoicing for clients with a previous arrangement with management. To qualify for billing your company must order a minimum of 100 orders per month and pay within 30 days.
All appraisals are personally reviewed and analyzed by the chief appraiser, prior to completion and delivery. Our turn around time has been 5 to 7 days after the inspection, provided there are no special circumstances.
We look forward to providing the same quality service for you as well.
