I'm currently searching for a mentor to train me when I get my trainee license shortly. I am planning on sending the letter below to a number of local appraisers, then following up with a phone call. Do you think this is an effective approach? How does the letter sound? Thanks for the advice!
I am an aspiring Real Estate Appraiser seeking a mentor. I will be receiving my trainee license shortly and would like to ask you to consider taking me under your wing.
My skills and experience will ensure that this will be successful endeavor for you. Since receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Cal State Fullerton, I have worked as a Market Analyst and recently as a Software Engineer. I have a unique mix of strong technical/analytical skills and good communication skills that make me well suited to the Appraising profession. I can assure you that I am very reliable and take a great deal of pride in my work. You can feel confident that I will give my full effort to any assignment you give to me. I also have several local contacts in the Home Lending industry that will allow me to bring my own clients to your practice. I have my own desktop and pocket PC, mobile phone, and digital camera and I am willing to purchase additional supplies if necessary.
If you are interested in becoming my mentor, please give me a call at 714/225-6090 (mobile) or you can email me at [email protected].
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
