The National Society of Real Estate Appraisers, Inc. (NSREA), was organized in the state of California in 1956. Our organization has members, most of which are licensed real estate practitioners, in the majority of the larger cities in the U.S.. Many have obtained advanced college or university training and are well known as appraisers in their communities.
Because our membership has worked and lived primarily in urban areas, we are recognized as especially knowledgeable regarding the values of properties in and around such areas. This fact increased the possibility that we would be called upon to aid in the development of activities for improvement in urban areas.
Emphasis on objectivity and the need for intensive study in appraising is a cornerstone of our training programs. Our re-certification program is based on continuing education and peer review. We are required to complete the re-certification program so that our skills are kept up to date. In addition, our standards of ethics and technical competency are among the highest in the industry. We have a working and meaningful relationship with other professional appraisal organizations, creating an atmosphere for the exchange of ideas and procedures.
Our symbols identify appraisers who will render fair and complete valuations, giving full consideration to all factors and circumstances. An appraiser certified by NSREA truly merits your full confidence.
