At the core of our organization is a resolute commitment to catalyze change within the appraisal industry. We provide mentorship, education, and resources to empower aspiring and established minority appraisers. Our initiatives encompass:

Fostering growth and guidance by connecting emerging appraisers with seasoned professionals.

Elevating skills and knowledge through courses, seminars, and workshops.

Who We Serve

We are dedicated to the growth and success of minority appraisers, including individuals from underrepresented communities and backgrounds. Our services are designed to break down barriers, enabling a more diverse group of appraisers to thrive in this industry.

Partnering for Impact

We are proud to partner with municipalities, realtors, and lenders, creating a collaborative pipeline of appraises that benefits not only these organizations but also serves as a vital component of community development and workforce empowerment. This partnership amplifies our commitment to building a more inclusive and equitable future for the appraisal industry.



The appraisal industry, like many others, has faced disparities for far too long.

Our legacy will be an industry where every voice is heard, every perspective is valued, and every appraisal is a true reflection of the rich tapestry of our society. Join us in shaping this remarkable future.
