On Thursday, July 10, I gave a presentation titled “Three Steps to Mobile Appraiser” at the Portland NAIFA monthly luncheon. Turnout for the event was very good. Many attendees asked thoughtful appraisal-related questions at the end. We discussed why the use of mobile appraisal tools is so important for appraisers and how A Quality Appraisal, LLC uses multiple monitors, paperless office, file sharing, file backup, tablet computers (including tablet desktop replacements), and laser measurement (Disto) to increase the efficiency and production of our office. If you missed the luncheon, here is a video of the presentation:
I believe that using mobile field devices, including tablet computers and laser tape measures, are as important for appraisers today as digital cameras, yet few appraisers have made the transition. If you watched the “Three Steps to Mobile Appraiser” presentation and have any questions about how real estate professionals can use tablets or other devices in the field, please contact me. I love to help my appraiser colleagues. If you would like me to speak at your event, please give me a call.

On Thursday, July 10th at 11:30, I speak at the Portland Rose City Chapter of NAIFA luncheon. Any of my Portland, Oregon area appraisal blog subscribers are welcome to attend. Admission to the event is $15 for guests with a buffet lunch included. My presentation will start shortly after noon and will last about thirty to forty-five minutes.
Some appraisers may be hesitant to take full advantage of the mobile computing and software options that are available today. My presentation is based around personal experiences with these tools, and how three easy steps can lead from being an appraiser tied to an office computer to one who can work anywhere and be productive everywhere. Even if you are an appraiser who does not plan to use a mobile device in the field, valuable tips are provided to help you have a more productive and less complicated office. I look forward to seeing you there and to discussing mobile appraisal technology with you.
