“I graduated from St. Cloud State University, with a Bachelor of Science in Real Estate, and an emphasis in appraisal. I was a commercial fee appraiser for nearly six years at Diversified Real Estate Services before venturing to Glaser Financial Group (merged into MMA Realty Capital) as an underwriter for multi-family projects involving Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae DUS and HUD/FHA financing. I spent just over one year in this capacity before settling in at Wells Fargo RETECHS, where I currently am a commercial review appraiser. I have been with Wells Fargo for 14 years.
When the Appraisal Institute introduced the AI-GRS Review designation, I realized that this was the perfect fit for me. The additional coursework has given me some new perspectives and ideas that I have been able to incorporate into my day-to-day review assignments.
I am also a candidate for the MAI designation with only the demonstration report requirement outstanding.”
