Will be starting a a small company as a trainee next month. Before starting I need to put together a business plan on how I can bring new business in the office. The appraiser currently does no advertising and all the work is referral business. From what I have read on the forum regarding the larger lending institutions, BOA, AIG, Citigroup, Quicken Loans, they all use AMC's. I would like to get on a few of their vendor lists but I have not read a single positive post regarding AMC's. Would I be missing an opportunity to get addittional business or be better off creating other avenues of new clients?
