Appraisal Management

Our appraisal management team provides expertise in all facets of appraisal management and administration.

No other service provider offers the breadth of experience, technical capabilities, and vast resources that our team can bring to each engagement.

Services range from single-property appraisal reviews to major portfolio consulting engagements, and can be offered as an all-inclusive package or on a deal-by-deal basis.

Assistance

Our team can help to develop new appraisal policies, or refine existing ones to ensure adherence to compliance and regulatory requirements, appraisal independence, and implementation of industry-wide best practices.

Industry expertise

Our experts are able to match an appraiser’s skills to the appraisal assignment through a well-refined, nationwide and external third-party appraiser panel. We can solicit multiple bids for appraisal assignments to ensure that competitive fees and turnaround times are obtained.

Organization

We work with a standard platform to coordinate the engagement letters, information flow, and other administrative functions. We act as liaison between the third-party vendor and the client to resolve disputes and ensure the process is independent and the final results are reasonable.
