Mitch Weiss the Associated Press reporter ([email protected]) is seeking information on appraisers who have been revoked, suspended or voluntarily surrendered their license in one state and yet are still appraising a another state

or

were revoked, suspended or voluntarily surrendered their license in one state
and then moved to another state and became licensed there.

If you know of such situations email Mitch or you cam PM or email me and I will get it too him without your name.

If you THINK you know about a case, how about checking it out at the ASC website before you send in a name.

Not supposed to happen (I'm not saying it doesn't, though.)

I can only speak to Oregon. In order to become lic/cert here - one starts out through the registered assistant program or via resiprocity from another state. If it's from another state, we do verify the credentials, if via the trainee process, one must disclose any such prior action. If in either case, it's determined that the applicant failed to disclose the facts (we do verify)- that's cause revocation. Period, end of discussion.

There is a guy from Florida that had his license revoked and is now running a Skippy AMC. Guaranteed values, comp checks, the works.

Donald Haynes, NC and SC

Revoked in SC and currently suspended in NC. Was working up until recent suspension.

Studeman From Florida.

Revoked in Florida, reported to ASC per Frank, ASC still shows him active in 3 states.

Another NC lady, revoked in NC....went straight across the SC line and opened an office. They shut her down AFTER she was reported to SC board.

Look them up on ASC.

It dang sure does happen.....end of story.

That's great Doug. Now what about someone already licensed in your state and another state. Would the revocation/voluntary surrender on the other state cause any automatic action on the license in Oregon, or would a separate proceeding be required based on actions that occurred in Oregon?

It is a bit cumbersome, but I would think a separate evaluation would be needed by each state board. Laws vary from state to state. They could have been revoked or done a voluntary surrender for something that is not a violation in the other state; there is not one set of rules. Also, many will claim some boards operate in a less than ethical manner in handling discipline. If one board committed an abuse of power, and revoked the license of an appraiser to eliminate their competitor for business, an automatic revocation by another state would compound the injustice.

Sending a PM to UC about one who dropped his license in lieu of sanction in AR. He is (I presume) still an appraiser in OK. Believe he also quit MO.

He is the worlds greatest poultry farm appraiser...according to his testimony...because FSA taught him how....yeah, right.

sample? He did not use any Hmong poultry farm sales (84 in 3 yr period in one MLS alone) because ALL Hmong poultry farm sales were not 'arm's length. Hmong were not 'informed buyers'....never mind several of them who owned farms were also RE agents. Never mind he used a COMP that involved a Hmong buyer BECAUSE HE DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE NAME AS A HMONG NAME.

There are appraisers with their license revoked that are still appraising in nonmandatory states. There is nothing the Department of Licensing can do as long as they appraiser properties that do not require a license to appraise. State boards and the investigative arm of the Department of Licensing are sources of this type of information.
