The city of St. Augustine is rich with history dating as far back as 1513 when the Spanish explorer, Juan Ponce de Leon, documented his travels along the coast of Florida. 

Since then, the area has been explored and occupied by several countries including France, Britain, Spain, and was finally ceded by Spain to America in 1822.

The Hilton St. Augustine Historic Bayfront Hotel is located in the heart of town where you'll find cobblestoned streets lined with sidewalk cafes, centuries-old churches, forts where soldiers still walk the grounds, all within a beautiful coastal setting.

Testimonials from Past Live Trainings:

My son and I enjoyed being part of your special group, and feel it went well beyond our expectations. The quality of the whole content and discussions were awesome. The people were fantastic individuals also, and that includes both of you of course. Ron, I appreciate the way you interacted with my son, you are such a good role model for him as a newbie appraiser.

Fantastic educational experience. Planned, and taught by truly caring individuals. Thank you Ron & Lacey. We are now ready to embrace our futures as Real Estate Appraisers throughout the United States.

Don P.

Appraiser in CA

I am about half way through Day 1. I am printing out the reports so I have them in front of me while watching the video again. Still working on shifting my focus to 'just risk factors' instead of all areas - like I have been reviewing the past 25 years! Thanks again.

Barry W.

Appraiser in WA

Thank you Ron and Lacey for such a wonderful and rewarding event. It was an honor to meet you, participate and meet a great group of professional and diverse peers!

Susan B.

Appraiser in NC

I am so very thankful for the opportunity which you gave us. I want to personally thank you Ron and your great wife, Lacey. God bless all who were there.

Tom D.

Appraiser in AR

I was going to retire but miss the money and keeping my mind active.  This could be very nice working from home, doing something I really enjoy.  The program you have put together is really good and I feel very comfortable with the examples you provided along with all of the commentary. Incidentally, regarding the call last week, it never before occurred to me that I don't really know the condition of comps and that's one reason to reconcile on more than one comparable. Thanks for everything.

Appraiser in FL

We're looking forward to it!
