We have Certified Appraisers checking the work

Our review process is designed to ensure compliance with all applicable guidelines and is built to significantly reduce issues arising from a Collateral Underwriter (CU). We run our appraisals through automated rules tailored to each client/investor’s guidelines. The review process is conducted by Certified Appraisers. The combination of these two powerful resources produces remarkably compliant, accurate, and timely results. 

 

Accurate, interpersonal service is our special touch.

From brokers, to lenders, to appraisers, we offer efficiency, accountability, and transparency along the way. We pick up the phone, we talk through situations, and we put ourselves in our stakeholders' shoes to see all sides. By offering consistent solutions and providing open communication, we can address the needs of all parties, while maintaining regulatory compliance.
