Our students love us. Don’t take our word for it…

“I would go to Mel Black’s USPAP class at any price, because I actually feel like I learned something. I wouldn’t take a second rate USPAP class at any price, even if it were FREE! That’s how much I appreciate his knowledge and understanding of the appraisal industry.”

“An appraisal friend of mine asked if I wanted to use someone else for a class.  My response was that I used the 2nd string once before and it wasn’t good.  I simply want to say thank you for how you help the Appraisal industry.”
