RAC Member Ernie Durbin Receives 2018 Valuation Visionary Award from CRN

Our very own longtime RAC member Ernie Durbin, Chief Valuation Officer for Clarocity Corporation, was named the 2018 Valuation Visionary award winner by Collateral Risk Network (CRN). Here’s the interview with Appraisal Buzz.

Each year, the Collateral Risk Network presents the award in recognition of the person who demonstrates leadership, innovation, professionalism, and one who strives to better the industry for their peers. We will be presenting the award at Valuation Expo in Charleston in March.

Ernie Durbin is renowned for creativity with technology advancements and industry-wide involvement. Ernie is widely recognized as an innovative leader with vision and foresight. Ernie was nominated by his peers and we are honored to recognize him as the 8th recipient of Valuation Visionary.

I can’t think of anyone who is more future-orientated in our profession than Ernie and we thank him for all he does for RAC.

Congrats Ernie!

RAC Conference Frisco TX: Changes, Challenges, Solutions

As I’ve said many times, the annual RAC conference is the best appraiser-centric conference I’ve ever attended. It is developed and operated by active appraisers who are working to help you thrive as a professional.

As the current president of RAC, I’m proud to be part of an organization comprised of the best residential appraisers in the U.S.

RAC Blog Awakes from Slumber To Leverage Members Extensive Valuation Knowledge

For those of you that don’t know me, I’m Jonathan Miller, a long time member of RAC who dabbles in social media. At our recent conference in Dallas I was asked by the RAC Board to help share our membership’s wide array of valuation expertise with the public. This web site seems like a perfect vehicle to do that.

One of the reasons I’ve remained a RAC member for more than half of my 28 year appraisal career is because RAC members are the best residential (and commercial) appraisers in the country. I always wanted to be aligned with RAC – even though my market area has always seen limited relocation work. I knew it was important to maintain access to their collective knowledge so I could continue to grow as a valuation professional…and the membership is comprised of a great group of people.

What began as an organization that literally “wrote the book on relocation appraising” for ERC is really much more than that. RAC members are also known for their appraisal expertise of complex residential properties including litigation support, testimony and reviews. So much so that RAC has incorporated that message into their new tag line – “RAC: Providing valuation solutions for complex residential properties.”

We’ll soon be providing other ways to keep connected and informed so stay tuned!
