Educating real estate appraisers for over 60 years, the Appraisal Institute is the acknowledged leader in residential and commercial appraisal education, research, publishing, and professional membership designation programs.

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the Appraisal Institute and its predecessor organizations have been at the forefront of the real estate appraisal profession for more than 60 years. 

Appraisal Institute members are identified by their experience and knowledge of real estate valuation, and adhere to a strictly enforced Code of Professional Ethics and Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. The Appraisal Institute has more than 19,000 members and 112 chapters across the country. 

The Appraisal Institute remains faithful to the ideal of high appraisal standards. Its members are encouraged to adhere to these high standards through professional designation programs that recognize knowledge, training, and experience in residential and commercial real estate appraisal.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!! We are now submitting for continuing education for The State of Michigan for appraiser, broker/sales and assessor licenses for all Great Lakes Chapter seminars.
