Appraisals Still Keeping Us Busy and Staff News

We continue to see fairly consistent appraisal activity. We have several upcoming projects in the semiconductor and health/fitness industries which should prove to be quite interesting.

Brandon, our newest staff member, is also busy studying for his next ASA appraisal test.  Brandon will be taking the M&E 201 test and the BV 203 seminar within the next several months and he is also studying for his next CFA exam. We wish him the best as he is well on his way to being a highly skilled, multi-disciplined appraiser.

Shannon, the best office manager and report production person on the planet, has been recovering from surgery and follow-up treatments. We continue to pray for her speedy and complete recovery as she is an integral part of our company.
