The Company

CLASS APPRAISAL, INC. WORKS WITH THE NATION’S LEADING LENDERS AND APPRAISERS TO PROVIDE REGULATORY COMPLIANCE AND OPERATIONAL SERVICES FOR RESIDENTIAL APPRAISAL REPORTS.

In 2010, legislation known as The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, was enacted that required mortgage lenders to abide by “Appraisal Independence Requirements” (AIR). As a result, Class Appraisal, a Nationwide Appraisal Management Company, was formed by a team of industry veterans to service the ever changing needs of the mortgage and valuation industry.

Class Appraisal, Inc. works with the nation’s leading lenders and appraisers to provide regulatory compliance and operational services for residential appraisal reports.  We have quickly become one of the fastest growing and respected Appraisal Management Companies in the United States.  We have earned a reputation of delivering outstanding quality and service by focusing on the creation of long-lasting relationships with our business partners.  We are committed to combining the best people, products, processes and technology possible. Our primary goals are simple: to innovate, to provide viable solutions and to be a strategic business partner with whom we work.

We understand that each business has a unique set of needs and requirements. To ensure we meet those requirements, our staff includes former State Certified Appraisers, DE Underwriters, National Production Managers and Mortgage Banking Executives. We will go above and beyond, using all the tools we have to help you grow your business.  We are here to help you through the complicated valuation process so you can focus on the things you do best.
