The Chapter Welcomes You!

The Southern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute is home to some of the appraisal profession’s leading practitioners, educators and authors since its founding in 1933. Our chapter comprises over 1,200 real estate professionals who reside or practice within our chapter’s boundaries, which include Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. In addition to exhibiting a higher level of competence than the minimum standards required of appraisers who are solely licensed or certified, our Appraisal Institute Designated Members, Candidates for Designation, and Practicing Affiliates are committed to upholding a rigorous code of ethics.
