    I have done this before with other appraisers who are outside of my geographical area, and because I have had some good success as a result, I am offering quality client info to those who are willing to do the same. Who knows which clients are best better than another appraiser right?

    I am primarily interested in REO/foreclosure work and other alternatives to typical mortgage lender work (I hope to distance my company from it as I foresee no promising future for that appraisal sector of the business), but might consider other quality clients that you respect enough to personally recommend. A client who sends volume of 10 or more assignments a month would be great, but one that sends one a week consistently would be OK too. In return, I am willing to offer you contact and basic information on a few of my better clients. Please don't respond if you have nothing to offer, this is an opportunity for mutual benefit.

    *It is likely that you won't be able to offer any good quality AMCs who pay near full fees AND who aren't a major hassle to deal with (ie. quick turn times, constant monitoring, difficult underwriting conditions, etc.), so we can go ahead and mark 99% of AMCs off the list of potential clients.

    PS: Email me as opposed to PMing me. PM box tends to fill up too quickly. Lastly, I would add that I AM interested in getting new review and relocation work.

    In recognition of the "give and ye shall receive Biblical concept", here is a link to some potential business for you. Warning, consult the Deadbeat list and "Good, Bad & Ugly" list before you call each company. A number of these companies are amcs and some are deadbeats, but there are some reputable REO organizations on the list (other companies order lender appraisals as well). A good resource. Cheers!

    Already listed in their directory under Appraisal Services, Inc. I've written a few articles for them too-- had to do with field servicing management. Can't say I've ever gotten an order from that exposure though.

    "Give and ye shall receive" worked! I went from 5-6 assignments in the first 3 weeks of this month to 12 in the past week. It works. Anyone else care to share?

    Ryan,

    I signed up primarily with REOs. Amcs really don't interest me. Some of the companies do not hire appraisers - check each for "vendor type". Judging from some "Good, bad, ugly clients" AF comments, you won't want to work with all of these companies. I researched the Good, Bad & Ugly (of course, some appraisers have offered pros & cons so you will have to decide for yourself) before I went to the trouble of filling out any paperwork, I recommend you do the same.

    Doug,

    Thanks for sharing. I will keep you on the list for NC referrals from good clients. How about those Pfeiffer Falcons?? Ever hear of them.

    No, I have heard of Pfeiffer though. Isn't Pfeiffer a college?

    Is REO work different? Certainly haven't done any yet, and don't know anything about it. Can you give me a pointer or two. Thanks.
