While this happened about a month ago, about the same time we launched our Facebook account, so we think it’s possible it didn’t get the attention it deserved. One of our team members, real estate appraiser and consultant Dave Curry, has just earned his MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute. While this definitely shows we have a team committed to going above and beyond the education and experience needed for state certification, it also means a few other things.
According to the Appraisal Institute:
“The MAI membership designation is held by appraisers who are experienced in the valuation and evaluation of commercial, industrial, residential, and other types of properties, and advise clients on real estate investment decisions. The MAI, SRA and SRPA designations have long been recognized by courts of law, government agencies, financial institutions, and investors as marks of excellence in the field of real estate valuation and analysis. Obtaining a designation shows your clients you have both education and experience that significantly surpasses the threshold needed for state certification, demonstrating professional knowledge, understanding, and ability. Designated members make a commitment to pursue advanced education, maintain defined ethical requirements and promote higher expectations for the appraisal profession as a whole.”
So congrats, Dave, and thanks for helping our team continue to look good.
