Tue, 13 Aug 2019 13:52:30 GMT

Residential and Commercial Staff Appraisers Looking for Rock Stars Appraisals are real estate valuation puzzles and at PahRoo Appraisal and Consultancy, our appraisers solve those puzzles so that our clients can make confident decisions today that will transform their tomorrows. And guess how many tomorrows we want to impact? 100,000 tomorrows. Yes, you read that right. 100,000. We want to transform tons and tons of lives. We are currently looking for one additional Residential and one additional Commercial Appraiser to help us change lives. But we’re not looking for plain vanilla appraisers. Those are a dime a dozen. We’re looking for the rock star appraisers. Steven Tyler. Mick Jagger. Janis Joplin. Jon Bon Jovi. Pink. Justin Timberlake. You. Yes, we want quality reports. Every report. On time. Every time. That’s you? Awesome. There’s more. Yes, we have core values. Not the cliché kind, not the kind that are on a plaque in the lunchroom, not the kind we never talk about. The kind that we live every day. • Results, Not Excuses - you made the commitment to our client. Are you willing to do what it takes to follow through on that commitment? You might miss lunch or be home a little late. If you make a mistake or need help, are you going to ‘fess up and step up? Got to own the outcome because transforming people’s lives is at stake. • Do Right Even When No One Is Watching – Make Mama Proud. You know what we’re talking about here. If she’s wagging her finger at you, you know you shouldn’t be doing it. No shortcuts, nothing shady. Do what you know in your heart is the right thing for the client, for the company and for the team. • Us Before Me – Golf, chess, and swimming are one-player sports. But appraisal at PahRoo is a team sport where 1+1=3 . We are dedicated and committed to each other’s success because we all have a genuine desire to be part of something bigger than ourselves. • Growth Through Learning – even super heroes know that there’s always something to learn, a different perspective, a new insight. Are you open to listening, learning, and growing? Do you Thrive on learning new things? • Committed to Excellence – well, this one is pretty self-explanatory. You expect the best from yourself and you don’t settle for less. You know people’s lives depend on your work and you exceed expectations. There’s more though. Can you check all of these boxes? Technical Skills: • Holds a Certified Residential or Certified Commercial Appraisal License (or higher) in the State of Illinois; FHA approved. • 3+ Years Appraisal Experience • Have a clean appraisal record (no appraiser blacklists) • Bachelor’s degree • Expert knowledge and experience performing complex and high end residential or commercial appraisal assignments • Have an understanding of local real estate markets throughout the market area of Northern Illinois • A reputation for writing clean, organized, and well-researched reports (our Operation Department will love you, so will our clients). • Detail obsessed (even when things are moving fast). • A thirst for knowledge and the ability to check your ego at the door and take constructive criticism • Excellent time and priority management skills—the thought of missing a deadline makes you cringe. It makes us cringe too. • Thorough working knowledge of computer technology, appraisal software, mapping software, laser measuring tool and County Record systems • Advanced Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, and Outlook) skills • Ability to travel within the state (possibly out of state too.
