ASA International Conference in Las Vegas

We are heading to Las Vegas later this week for the annual American Society of Appraisers International Appraisal Conference. We look forward to seeing many old friends and colleagues and meeting many new faces from around the world. This conference seems to get better each time we attend as the level of professional development, education and networking opportunities continue to expand and improve. Please send us a note or post a comment on our blog if you will be in Vegas this year so we can be sure to get together and catch up. Will have some more updates on conference topics and activities later this week and next week as well.

Welcome Brandon Steele

We are pleased to welcome Brandon Steele to our firm. Brandon recently graduated Cum Laude from San Diego State University with a degree in Finance and with an honors distinction. He has applied for ASA and CFA membership and is the process of becoming an accredited ASA member in Business Valuation and a designated CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst). Brandon’s goal is to bring a whole new level of expertise in the field of business valuations to Asset Reliance International. We believe that the valuations of intangible and intellectual properties will be the wave of the future and Brandon will be well positioned to evaluate and remarket these types of assets. Additionally, Brandon believes that the auction marketplace is ready to accept the buying and selling of soft assets just as hard assets are traded today.
