About Brantley and Associates Highly Qualified Real Estate Appraisers


We insist upon the maintenance of well trained and highly educated personnel. The educational qualification for employment as a staff appraiser with our company is a bachelor's degree in a relevant major. However, the majority of our staff appraisers have considerable education beyond this and several hold masters degrees. All appraisers with the firm are required to maintain rigorous levels of continuing education.


All of our appraisers have substantial experience in the area of their specialty. While the principal appraiser is experienced in virtually every property type, our staff tends to specialize in various areas of appraisal. Examples of areas of specialization include: narrative commercial appraisals for mortgage loans, condemnation or eminent domain appraisals, litigation support, shopping centers, apartments, office buildings, industrial buildings, restaurants, wetlands, partial interests, convenience stores, etc.

Professionally Designated

The most important qualification that you should look for in retaining a real estate appraiser is the MAI appraisal designation. The MAI appraisal designation is awarded only to individual appraisers who have completed a prescribed educational curriculum and who have demonstrated obvious professional competence through the verification of their experience and technique to a professional body. All appraisals performed by Brantley & Associates Real Estate Appraisal Corporation are reviewed and signed by an appraiser with the MAI designation, insuring you of accuracy, competency and valid recognition of your appraisal product.
