Hi all,

The question is can I open a firm with AT license? I do have a certified AR , who is willing to be an employee in the firm, and will train and sign for everything? is that possible ? Please reply to [email protected] if you know where can I get some help for this? Thanks in advance.

I think you can do whatever you want as long as you are supervised by an AR or AG.

Some might say that there are so many long time appraisers looking for work, why would anyone use a trainee?

When I started out back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I worked for a very enterprising gal who had no licenase at all. She was working for a title company when they decided to spin off their appraisal business, so she took it private. She had Certified reviewers and everything seemed to work out fine for her.

In the state of Florida the answer is NO. The certified appraiser signs the checks given to the trainee.

Indeed, however you're in Cali. Check your local laws for that answer. Best of luck with the new enterprise either way though.
