About the Position:
The mortgage lending environment is in the midst of evolving from legacy products and processes, to a more streamlined model. For example, traditionally, residential appraisers have been responsible for physically inspecting homes that they are appraising. Based on changing policies and service level expectations, the appraiser of the future will rely upon an independent third-party to complete the physical inspection, while the appraiser focuses their energy on analysis and report development. This new bifurcated process, which has been successfully used in the context of Evaluations, will be broadly adopted in the forward origination space.
Qualifications and Required Experience:
Chadwick Appraisals is looking for experienced Certified General Real Estate Appraisers. Qualified candidates will be responsible for appraising all types of commercial real estate. Applicants must possess strong research and analytical skills, the ability to meet deadlines with limited supervision, excellent verbal and written communication skills, attention to detail, proficiency in Word and Excel, and be self-sufficient and self-motivated.
