Lawsuit of Coester vs. VREAB
Voice of Appraisal Podcast RE Coester vs. VREAB Lawsuit
Phil Crawford with Voice of Appraisal has another great podcast about the appraisal profession and the recent lawsuit filed in Virginia against the Real Estate Appraiser Board (VREAB). This is probably the most important Voice of Appraisal show to date. In this “must listen” podcast, Phil discusses Coester lawsuit against VREAB and AMCs’ unsustainable business model. He does a stellar job with his analysis and recommendations of Coester vs. VREAB lawsuit.
Phil, a fellow appraiser, who has become a catalyst for change in the appraisal profession, stated in his earlier message:
In the next 30 days, the independent fee appraiser profession will reach a critical and pivotal moment in a long history of internal and external conflict. Sides will be chosen and battle lines will be drawn, and the true nature of those participates within our industry will be known, for all to see.
I would ask all of you to hold fast and dig deep into your individual constitutions as we cover a war between appraisers and AMCs that could change the very landscape of this vital industry forever. Reputations will be put on the line. Public opinion within the industry will be defined. This open battle of integrity will show the world who has best intentions for the American Appraiser, the American financial institutions, and ultimately the American People.
Stay strong and don’t be afraid. Speak up for your profession and embolden yourselves with the knowledge that the American Appraiser Movement gains more and more strength, today, and everyday into the future!
