2022 Monterey Bay Appraisal Seminar (MBAS)

July 14, 2022

It’s BACK! Our 2021 debut offering of the revival of this long-standing networking and educational event was a HUGE success. Don’t miss our 2022 Monterey Bay Appraisal Seminar. Our 7-hour synchronous (formerly called virtual classroom) format makes it easy to attend from anywhere – no commute, no parking fees . . . no hassles!

The Monterey Bay Appraisal Seminar (MBAS) originated in 1960 as a joint offering sponsored by the Society of Real Estate Appraisers (SREA), The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and The American Right of way Association (ARWA).   After a hiatus of several years, the Northern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute is proud to revitalize this iconic, long-standing education and networking event.

Opening Keynote: “California Housing Market and Outlook”
Dr. Gerd Welke
Executive Director of the Real Estate Research Council and Professor of Real Estate Analytics at Cal Poly Pomona

2022 Topics include:
What’s New? Policy Clarifications
Appraisal Compliance Review:  Just What are Reviewers Really Looking For?
SB 9: Residential Appraising in California Just Became a Lot More Complicated!
Cost Approach: Best Practices for Marshall & Swift

Presenters include:
Dawn Molitor-Gennrich, SRA, AI-RRS, Principal, Molitor-Gennrich Consulting, Inc.
John Hibbard, Principal, The Meridian Valuation Group
Denis DeSaix, MAI, SRA, Principal, MetroCal Appraisal
Darwin Ernst, SRA, AI-RRS, Assistant VP, Commercial Appraisal Job Manager, Homestreet Bank
Lyle Radke, Senior Director of Collateral Policy, Fannie Mae
Edward Martinez, Principal, Industry Solutions, Corelogic

While had hoped to “go LIVE” this year with the MBAS, we will have to wait until 2023 to hold this seminar in-person in the scenic Monterey Bay area. However, our 2022 MBAS will include post-conference “live” networking in several easily accessible venues throughout the Monterey Bay Area and beyond. Meet up in-person with your peers and spread good cheer!
