It’s Official – We’ve Merged! Effective January 1, 2022

Professionals Providing Real Estate Solutions

The Northern California Chapter is open for business! Our Chapter is comprised of appraisal professionals you know and trust. Education is the core service we provide. With the sudden onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, we pivoted quickly to continue to provide the quality education that real estate professionals have depended on for decades in a convenient and safe “virtual classroom” format. As the restrictions have been lifted and we are all now emerging in our “new normal”, we look forward to welcoming you back to “live” classroom experiences and the possibility of introducing "hybrid or concurrent" programs in the near future.
