How can clients verify current license status?

Insuring the current status of any California State General Certified Real Estate Appraisal License is among the most important steps a client can take to protect themselves.

To simplify verification I have provided the links to the Federal Appraiser Registry


The above link goes directly to my verified entry on the Appraisal Sub Committee Web site’s database. In the event of any  problem with the above link, the ASC Home Page is located at:

Because the above links are to an official official U. S. Government web site, I have no control over their operability or any changes to the links that may take place in the future.  These links work as of April 21, 2011. If you ever find a bad link, please let me know right away.

California Office of Real Estate Appraisers (OREA)

The above link takes you to the State’s OREA Home Page. Click the top row middle box with a picture of a house in it, that also says “Find an Appraiser”

Sometimes less is better at this particular state site.  If search results are blank, try using name and zip code only. Click the highlighted active link under license number that appears, and full license information will then show up.
