Split Fee Assignments

Are you a seasoned appraiser wanting to diversify your appraisal services by doing some split-fee work? If yes, then join our team at S&P Appraisals, Inc. because we are looking for appraisers with experience in high-end assignments (AND fees are much higher than regular type assignments). We are a 20+ year-old firm that has earned a very positive reputation and our support staff and review appraisers are always available for you, so you will never feel "alone" while completing an assignment. You will still maintain the flexibility of being an independent appraiser and dictate your work-load (1-a-day; 3-a-week; orders just near your home-office; etc.). We will handle the back-end work, so you can focus on appraising and we understand you have a life out-side of appraising. ACI and E&O are required. Please e-mail resume.
