Amrock Networks with Appraisal Talent at Valuation Expo 2019
Last week, our Amrock Staff Appraisal team headed to Chicago for the bi-annual Valuation Expo – the largest conference for appraisal professionals in the country. We always have an amazing time at this event, because it’s an engaging learning opportunity for everyone – offering industry professionals career development courses, panel discussions and talks from thought leaders. On the tradeshow floor, influential companies in the appraisal industry were highlighted including lenders, appraisal management companies and many more.
Amrock was there looking for new talent to join our Staff Appraisal team. We mingled with conference goers at our booth, chatting up prospective candidates and discussing the benefits of working with Amrock. Attendees also got the chance to play a cool game for their chance to win a gift card!
Other highlights included a panel on Collateral Matters, moderated by Amrock’s Associate Vice President of Appraisal Review, Jessica Romero. Comprised of industry experts and representatives from the VA, the National Association of Realtors®, the Appraisal Institute and Fannie Mae, the panelists discussed the nuances of the appraisal process, exploring industry matters, trends and changes. In particular, the appraiser’s role and their impact on housing finance were highlighted. The panel session closed with a lender’s perspective on why it’s important for appraisers to safeguard their roles in collateral matters.
During the conference, our leadership team had a chance to connect with appraisers from all over the country. “Everyone seemed really excited about the great things coming out of Amrock,” said Romero. “Our extensive benefits and the convenience of our mobile app were huge selling points that generated a lot of interest.”
We can’t wait to meet up with appraisal and industry professionals again for Valuation Expo in Las Vegas in the fall of 2019!
