Our recruiting process is unlike any other in the industry. Our management team has worked with appraisers from all 50 states for over 10 years in an AMC environment. They specialize in finding qualified, competent, licensed appraisers that will meet our standards. They understand fully that an AMC is only as good as its appraisers and strive to select and find the best and most professional appraisers in the country. Not all appraisers are approved to complete work with Vanguard.
Each appraiser goes through an extensive selection process that includes a phone interview, sample work, verifying experience, proper licensing with state and government officials, current Errors and Omissions Policy, and a current resume. Recruiting department monitors appraisers licensing to ensure we always have update licensing and E&O on file. In addition recruiting is responsible for negotiating fee schedules and handling all issues with appraiser’s fees. Again Vanguard does not look for the appraiser who will complete the assignment for the lowest fee, yet we look for the most qualified appraiser.
