i have a question. i am a trainee as some of you know. i have a sponsor that lives 120 miles away. when i started as a trainee last year we lived only 35 miles apart but weve since moved. i moved 50 miles south and he moved north. my question is about marketing my new town. how do i go about this. my sponsor is more than willing to go just about anywhere. however sometimes his committment to my assignments is a little lower and i am afraid i will lose business if this is my first impression on these people. what i mean is if i take too long to get them the assignment. do i need to have two sponsors? one for my new city and keep my old one for the existing stuff? i am ready for some local appraisals. i know i have get in some how. any suggestions? glad to be here. :D

Do you or your mentor know your new market area? If I were in your position I would look for an EXPERIENCED local appraiser to teach me the ins and outs of the local market.

Does your state allow trainees to hustle business??????

According to Ren Liner, the Commissioner of the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board, a trainee cannot market services. I'm serious, that's what he told me.

Nearly every appraisal shop I have ever heard of will hire a trainee only under the condition he can bring in his own business. Just like a R.E. Salesman. No leads, no job.

Just curious.
