Inspiration From The Next Generation

Monday, September 23, 2013

I have had the privilege of teaching appraisal classes in over 40% of the states in this country within the last three to four years. In every class I speak unremittingly about my appraiser trainee(s) and how I love my trainee. I usually ask the class if anyone is training appraisers and there are very few who actually are. I am often met with hesitation by the appraiser's in the classes.
