NAIFA Courses - Tacoma Feb 7-8 2011

Hi to all – If you have a distribution list for appraisers, can you please forward this flyer? We are very excited about these classes, and we are pleased to have been able to keep our prices low. WE ARE DONATING HALF OF OUR PROFITS TO ACOW, and we expect this to be very profitable with a huge turnout.

Our day one instructor for our Social Media Marketing for Appraisers is phenomenal – I have taken several of his classes at Green River Community College. This is a HOT topic. Mr. Kirk Davis will lead you through the maze that makes up the Social Media Marketing world. This curriculum was designed specific to our industry and is accredited for 7 CE credit hours through Green River Community College. It is a subject that is timely, relevant and fun. The seven hours of this class will leave you energized and inspired. You might even feel a tinge of optimism about the possibilities for the future of your appraisal business – now wouldn’t that be a bonus?

On day 2 we have our morning session led by our very own Gary G. Walker, IFA, who will lead us through 4 hours of CE in Spreadsheet Bootcamp. Gary is a well respected and very experienced Certified General appraiser and a NAIFA trained Appraisal Instructor who knows his stuff about Microsoft Excel. This class is geared towards the residential appraiser. I for one can’t wait for this class. This is a skill set I need help with and I look forward to being more competent in this area in 2011! The day 2 afternoon session (4 hour CE) is a panel discussion What Are Your Peers Doing? that is intended to bring practical information for improving your appraisal product. What should and should not be included in the appraisal report? Has the industry standard changed over the past 1-3 years? This promises to be a lively afternoon as panel members share their differing opinions.

Thanks all – here’s to starting out 2011 with positive forward momentum!
