In February, I wrote about my
trip to Southern
California to complete the final and most difficult class in the path toward earning the Appraisal Institute’s
The designation is a recognized mark of excellence in residential real estate appraisal.
After that class, I had a very busy spring and summer, but I finally made time to submit the required experience logs and reports, and then pass an experience interview.
Now, after several years of saying that I am an Appraisal Institute candidate for designation, I can proudly add SRA to my title.
My hope is that SRA designation will assist me in service to the Appraisal Institute and that it will also help me gain credibility
when completing assignments for attorneys and financial professionals (who are the focus of my business).
If you are a real estate appraiser and have not earned a designation from an appraisal organization, I highly recommend it.
It is a rewarding educational journey that demonstrates to prospective clients that you hold yourself to higher standards than the
minimum appraiser licensing standards.
Did I leave anything out or do you want to join in the conversation?
