Is your appraisal business built for success?  Are you ready for the changes coming?  Does the structure of your business need to evolve due to the influx of desktop appraisals, hybrids, and other types of valuations?  The world of valuation is rapidly changing, and change inevitably brings fear, but you don’t need to face the future with trepidation. In this webinar, Dustin will lay out the changes that have happened, are happening, and will continue to happen in the appraisal profession and give real, meat-and-potatoes options for success now and into the future.

For more than half of his career, Dustin Harris ran his appraisal business just like everyone else. As a consequence, he got the same results as everyone else; long hours and living paycheck to paycheck. After an intense study of successful people, Dustin began putting principles of prosperity into place that have transformed his appraisal business and made him a successful leader in the profession. Now, in addition to being an appraiser, Dustin finds every way possible to teach these principles of success to other appraisers across the country. He has mentored hundreds of appraisers who have also transformed their businesses. In a big way, he is ‘creating value’ for real estate appraisers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i thought it was very helpful but i am better in the classroom. I thought for an appraiser training position some of the information about certified general appraising information and some of the other course materials could have been handled later in future courses in the residential courses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent course for expanding your scope of knowledge
Date published: 2016-07-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this course online. I think this is the type of course that would be much easier to absorb if you had a professor teaching. There are very few opportunities to participate and I think the professor needs to speak more often and offer tips/tricks/real life examples. This is essentially a course consisting of reading old, outdated powerpoint slides. This makes actual learning and application very difficult.
