The MAI, SRPA, SRA, AI-GRS and AI-RRS designations represent the advanced knowledge of experienced appraisers. They stand for years of proven, real-life real estate valuation experience. And they mean a commitment to strict professional ethics and standards. These designations distinguish our AI and Chapter members as leaders of our professional and trusted members of the real estate industry.
While the road to becoming a designated member takes time, understanding, and commitment, it provides members with the opportunity to elevate their careers to the upper echelon of valuation experts. These designations also provide the real estate industry and those needing valuation assistance with a way to credibly tell they are working with some of the best professionals in the business.
Within our Northern California Appraisal Institute Chapter we work to further uplift designated appraisers and those working to gain their designation through educational class offerings, mentorship through the Candidate Guidance group, exposure opportunities, and networking opportunities to meet with other designated professionals or those along their path to designation. A testament to our Chapter is that over 70% of our members have a form of designation.
