Appraiser Licensing
Appraiser licensing varies from state to state. To participate in what is called a "federally-related
transaction," which is, for example, a mortgage being underwritten by a national bank, an appraiser
must be licensed or certified by his or her state. The license or certification is evidence that the appraiser has performed a certain number of hours as a trainee under the supervision of a practicing appraiser, may have passed an examination, and completes a certain number of hours of Continuing Education Training.

We take our license very serious.  Shirely Sutton is a State Certified General  Appraisers, Tonya Hall, IFA is a State Certified General Appraiser and Terri Schneider, IFA is a State Certified Residential Appraiser with the state of Missouri.  The company owners also maintain an IFA designation with the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers. We have worked hard to establish a reputation for quality work, performed professionally and ethically, with outstanding customer service. You should never just look for a licensed appraiser; you should be discriminating in choosing your service providers.  Tour our website for valuable information on the experience we have and the service we provide.

You should always be sure your appraisal service provider is licensed and in good standing. The Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) maintains a national database of appraisers and their license/certification status.  It is available publicly at this link.

Among other things, this database, which relies on reports from each state appraisal board, will tell you if a service provider you are considering has had his or her license suspended, revoked, or whether the license has lapsed.You can rest assured that our license is current and in good standing!
