Thank you very much! I just want to let you know that DVB 2.0 class was the best class I have ever taken for appraisal. The difference was, I saw how much you strived to "teach" rather than "presenting" the material and get over with it! Thank you!

John O - FL

Thank you for your group. It has had a positive impact on me. Honestly, more than I ever thought. I joined the group because I was burnt out on field work. I just wanted to learn other ways to make money in appraising. I have been getting so much more than that out of the sessions. You both have expanded my thinking as to where I ultimately want to be (physically and mentally) and where I want my business to go. You're doing great things with your teaching and I just wanted to share that with you. Thank you both.

About Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Ron Maloney

I’ve been teaching appraisers online since 2014, when I launched my first Appraisal Review program. 

At the time, I had many years working for myself from home doing desktop reviews. It gave me the freedom and independence I wanted, and came with much lower expenses than working out in the field.

I began teaching because I knew if other appraisers understood this side of the business better, and got past the misconceptions, that they too could make a great living and enjoy a great lifestyle too, using the appraisal experience they already have.

Today I coach Appraisers from all across the country, who have wide and varied backgrounds to add another income stream doing desktops, earn a full-time income or even supplement their retirement.

In 2019, I averaged over $10k per month doing desktop valuations - mostly reviews, desktop appraisals and some quality control work. After a brief period of slowdown due to COVID, I am now as busy as I was last year.

And this is a major reason why my programs have been so successful; I am elbows-up in this work everyday and teach using my reports that I’ve completed, not from theory or hypotheticals. 

Now that I'm in my 6th year of teaching and coaching, I've honed my process even more into my newest training, the Desktop Valuation Blueprint 2.0!

I taught the first Desktop Valuation Blueprint in May 2018, to an in-person group of Appraisers, in the beautiful town of Carmel, CA. It was a great experience and Computershare was also a sponsor of that event.   

We were planning for another training in Carmel this year, when the coronavirus changed all of that. But like the saying goes “there’s a silver lining in every cloud”.

The upside is that we can now bring this training to a much larger group of appraisers in an online format.

The Desktop Valuation Blueprint 2.0 is my step-by-step process for doing efficient, quality desktop reviews and desktop appraisals so you can have a long-term, highly profitable desktop business.

If you would like to gain the skills to do desktop work - add an additional income stream to your business, transition to doing desktop valuations full-time just like I did… or even supplement your retirement… don’t miss out on this training!

What Appraisers have said about my programs:

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 - CA

I think one of your greatest strengths as an instructor is your candid straight talk. Nobody else does that. The insight I gain from your straight talk is powerful.

Rob G - NY  

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 - WA

I just wanted to thank you for the seminar and all you hard work.  As I was doing my assignments , the training was kicking in. Thank You for taking your time to continue to train us, provide us with good clients, advocate for us and support us. That makes all the difference to our success.  

Terrie P - FL

 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.

Ida F - FL

I wanted to say how much I have enjoyed and learned from your program. Seeing the appraisal through the eyes of a reviewer has been a great learning experience so not only have I learned about reviews and desktop products but I am learning how to be a better appraiser.

How long will I have access to my purchase?

You'll have "Lifetime" access to the training which is accessible on our program website. You can go at your own pace so you can begin at anytime and refer back as often as you'd like.

What if I just want the Desktop Valuation Blueprint 2.0 program and I'm not interested in joining the Appraisers Success Group?

When you purchase the Desktop Valuation Blueprint 2.0 it includes membership to the Appraisers Success Group (ASG).

Monthly membership charges ($39.95/month) for ASG do not being until March 1st, 2021. You have 2 months to try out ASG for free, and decide if you'd like to maintain your membership.

If you decide it's not right for you simply email us and let us know. We do not want to charge you for the ASG service if you're not interested. If you opt out of ASG, you will still maintain your access to the Desktop Valuation Blueprint 2.0 program.

What is your refund policy?

We are certain you will benefit from the Desktop Valuation Blueprint 2.0 program. You have a full 60 days from your date of purchase to try out. If you decide it is not right for you, simply let us know within 60 days of your purchase date and you will receive a full refund.

We do not give refunds for the Appraisers Success Group. You will have a full 60 days to decide if it's right for you  before we begin billing for the monthly charge of $39.95. You will receive a reminder email a few days before we begin billing. If you are charged but didn't want to join ASG, just let us know before our first session in March and we'll be happy to give you a refund. We do not want to charge anyone for ASG membership who does not want to be in the group.

Can I get CE credits for this?

Unfortunately CE credit is not available for this course. I would have to charge much more for this course to submit CE applications in all states. Until the process becomes more streamlined it's not currently feasible.

Why should I take your program? Shouldn't I just take a CE course instead?

This is a different kind of course, one that is practical and not theoretical in nature. Aside from teaching, I have a very busy appraisal practice of my own. I teach using my own reports as examples, so my course is hands-on and not based off of hypotheticals. Also, my main purpose is to teach other Appraisers to make a good living doing these types of desktop valuations from home, not to just learn more, but to learn how to take these actionable steps and apply it to your daily appraisal practice.
