The appraisal industry has undergone many changes but one thing remaned constant. The management process.


Appraisal management has always been the domain of someone or some company in the middle to accept, assign, receive, deliver and bill for their services. A traditional local office method, tweaked and applied to the national level as an Appraisal Management Company (AMC) that has remained virtually unchanged for decades. "We've always done it that way."

Using Artificial Intelligence, Complexity Scoring,  Automated Process Management, Assignment Logic, Appraiser and Appraisal Report Card Scoring, Rules based Quantitative and Qualitative reviews within a three factor QC/QA process and a third party accountancy in order to smooth the process flow our technology is unsurpassed.
