Hi Winston.  The shortage of appraisers will continue.  There is no trainee classification any more.

Thank you for sharing.  The best part was where buyers and sellers find their agent.  I haven't been doing floor time.  It looks like my choice was a good one.  I told the office if they need me I would be glad to come in, but if they had floor time covered, I am happy with no floor time.
