A good appraisal company is hard to find.  AGREAT appraisal company is nearly impossible to find. 

A great appraisal company would have short turn times, lots of communication, be priced competitively, ...but most of all, Get their appraisals approved through underwriting...

Before I started this appraisal company, I was the manager of the appraisal review department for one of the nation's largest appraisal companies.  My clients were banks, wholesalers, and Underwriters.

After personally completing over 11,000 appraisal reports, I know how to submit appraisals that get approved.  Stop using appraisers that are not dependable.  Give Good Faith Appraisals a try and stop worrying.
