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, live and online.
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… you won’t want to miss out on this training!
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.

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.

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.

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.

Exceeded all my expectations!
