"I purchased the AMC directory last week and am very happy. I signed up for 4 companies & already received two orders." - Diane F.

2013 was one of the biggest roller coaster rides I have ever experienced as a real estate appraiser and I am sure many of you were riding along with me.  I went from the most amazing end of 2012, still at the top throughout the beginning of 2013, and then slowly riding down in to spring.  Summer came along and I thought sales and refinances would help take me back up to the top but unfortunately I hit the downward slide like most of the other appraisers across the country. 

I was able to spend more time on non-lender marketing and on updating all of my license and insurance information with the Appraisal Management Companies that I did the most work for in 2012, which become inactive if not updated.

Steps to Take Now
The state of the industry for this first quarter of 2014 has been about the same as the last quarter of 2013.  Not enough AMC work for all the appraisers out there.  Now is the time to get all of your information updated with the best AMCs.  There is a lot of talk of the next refinance boom coming and the real estate market continues to improve.  As the market gets hot again, you want to make sure you are signed up to all the AMCs serving your market area. 

Updated 2014 AMC Guide
Last month, I successfully updated the entire 2014 Appraisal Management Company Directory.  I removed companies that have had billing problems, ones that have gone out of business and that are generally bad companies to work for.  I have also added a good number of new national appraisal management companies that I am sure you have not signed up with yet. 

You have nothing to lose and only orders to gain.  I suggest you use my directory to update all of your information with AMCs you have worked for in the past as well as sign up to as many of the appraisal management companies that are bound to have a lot of work in the spring.

I have high hopes for our industry!  If you really love being an appraiser but only need more work, then this new updated 2014 AMC Directory is for you.

Sincerely,

Bryan Knowlton

“Thanks Bryan, your list is worth the price. I've been getting good business from some of those AMCs. :)"  -Ray

"I have purchased your AMC directory and have been successful with obtaining new clients. Your emails are also very informative and full of excellent advise. Out of the AMC's I have signed up with, I was able to get two solid clients with consistent work on a weekly basis. Three other AMC's send orders on occasion. Thank you."

Where Does Your Website Rank? Are You Getting Orders Off The Internet?

Without a website that actually shows up on the first page of Google, you are not going to get those orders needed for estate valuation purposes, divorce, bankruptcy, date of death, tax reassessment, bail bonds and more.

I get at least 10 calls a week from people looking for real estate appraisal services that are needed for a variety of purposes. Some turn out to be long term customers spending thousands annually on appraisals.
