Valuation Expo will be held at the Mirage Hotel August 7-9! Get up to 14 Hours of Continuing Education!

They will be on the trade show floor to assist appraisers in understanding the new process. This is going to be a record-breaking year on many levels. Join in on the fun and be on the front line of what’s happening in the appraisal space. Besides, it’s Vegas, baby!

The 10 things every appraisal business NEEDS to be doing to not only survive, but thrive during changing markets.
