Tampa.  Time For A Change - Experienced Commercial Real Estate Appraiser Position

In these challenging times, it’s been very difficult for appraisers to maintain a steady work flow.  With the numerous mergers, acquisitions, and budget cutbacks you may have found that prior clients no longer provide you with the steady work you previously relied on.  Woodman S. Herr, MAI, has been an appraiser in the Tampa Bay market for 34 years and has owned Herr Valuation Advisors, Inc. for 16 years.  And while we too have experienced these conditions, through considerable marketing and networking, not to mention our commitment to quality and service, we’ve been able to maintain a steady work flow and adapt to these turbulent market conditions.

·        Compensation is based on a competitive fee split

·        A Simple IRA retirement account

·        Health Insurance

·        Payment of your MAI dues. 

·        Exposure to a wide range of property types

The HVA office in Tampa is centrally located, and we also provide the ability to log in and work remotely from anywhere.  We have a friendly staff that enjoys collaboration.  Our robust database and archive of past appraisals along with report writing software and templates give you the ability to produce an appraisal in less time and with greater quality and accuracy.  And we are committed to training and assisting you to be the best appraiser and maximize your income potential.

The applicant’s minimum qualifications must include:

·        A Registered Real Estate Appraiser’s Trainee license in the State of Florida

·        A four-year college degree (preferably in business, or real estate)

·        Strong writing and communication skills, and outstanding computer and organizational skills
