In this line of work, with people's hopes, wealth, and legacy at stake, appraisers must maintain trust and integrity to build up a solid reputation as Mario has.
Certified Real Estate Appraiser (CREA) is a designation for appraisers who specialize in residential real estate appraisal. This may include single-family homes, condominiums, vacant land, and in some cases, small commercial properties. All CREA candidates must have a state license prior to designation.
Licensing ensures that appraisers meet minimum requirements for education, experience, and examination that comply with federal mandates and ensure that only qualified persons are licensed to conduct appraisals in federally related real estate loan transactions.
The National Association of Real Estate Appraisers (NAREA), a professional society based in Alexandria, MN, confers the designation of Certified Real Estate Appraiser (CREA) to candidates who are state licensed or certified, pay annual membership dues and are accepted by the NAREA. NAREA includes a rigorous code of ethics and represents more than 4,000 appraisers in the United States.
