Illegal to introduce myself as an appraiser if I'm a trainee?

Never buy into the misconception that reviewers are more competent than appraisers. In most cases, it is the opposite.

I've seen plenty of reviews with license #'s that are so high, I think they were just certified last week.

I agree, but the license # also does not imply that someone is competent.

When I came up, I thought that all MAI's were competent, high-achieving, professionals. That assumption was quickly disproved. I have also worked with some perpetual trainees who were some of the most competent, hard working individuals that I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

It all comes down to the person. Make sure you pick a good mentor, not one that is going to take advantage of you and stick you in a dark corner.
