Im just curious what you may think of a competing appraisal firm sending a direct mail card looking for appraisers to my employee at MY office address.

It was addressed to "Jane Doe" at XYZ appraisal company (my appraisal company & at my business address)

I just think that kinda f-ing bush!

Thoughts?

Good appraisers are hard to find????? Probably saw a sample of their work and decided to make a move....

I might reply to them and say I am not pleased, but if they want to make an offer on my biz, speak...no non-compete clause however.

I am guessing Howard is correct. The ASC website has the appraiser's address on it. If you treat your employees well you have nothing to worry about. If the competitor is William Fall or Metro West tell your employee to go to the interview. When they get back they should love you.

yep, and other firms are not the only ones doing it. about 2 weeks ago i got a mailing from some company offering CE classes out of the blue. i've received 3 of them so far and they all disclose that my mailing information was obtained from the ASC site.

Willie Sutton once said in response to the question why he robs banks "That's where the money is". So looking to hire appraisers, mail appraisal offices.

I'd guess that there are few appraisers who don't think they're worth more than they're presently earning, or worth better treatment, or a better something. I'd guess that blind solicitation of licensed appraisers would bear better results than, say, walking into Neighborhood Bar and Grill and shouting, "Inny body wanna' be an appraiser?"
