A National Appraisal Organization
A part of the the Missouri Auction School, The Certified Appraisers Guild of America is a professional accrediting organization providing certification of personal property appraisers. With members in 49 states and 6 Canadian Provinces, the Certified Appraisers Guild of America is North America's # 1 trainer of personal property appraisers. On an annual basis, it trains more personal property appraisers than any other organization in North America. The Guild has been instrumental in helping to standardize the personal property appraisal profession. The members of the Certified Appraisers Guild form a network of valuable appraisal contacts throughout the United States and Canada.

Each member is required to attend professional training and pass a comprehensive exam before becoming certified. No one is allowed to be a member of the Certified Appraisers Guild of America without completing the certification program. There are no 'grandfathered' or 'Associate' members that have not completed the training and exam. Each member has completed the course work required to be certified by the Guild.

Educational Standards
The training each member is required to complete, includes the uniform standards of personal property appraisal practice and appraisal report writing.

With the government, courts, judges, banks, attorneys, accountants, insurance representatives and other professionals examining more closely the personal property appraisal report, it is important to know what to expect from a professional personal property appraisal report.

Here are a few points that a professional report should have:


  1. The Appraiser shall obtain the relevant facts relating to the subject property to form the final conclusion of value.
  2. All formal appraisal reports shall be in writing signed by the Appraiser.
  3. The Appraiser shall disclose any interest in the subject property and will accept an appraisal assignment only if the appraisal can be performed without bias.
  4. The Appraiser shall maintain the confidential nature of the appraisal report.
  5. The contents of the report shall not be disclosed without consent of the client or by court order.
  6. The fee charged by the Appraiser shall be independent of the value in the report.
  7. The Appraiser shall maintain respect for others in the appraisal profession.

"Everything went smoothly, from our initial contact through settlement."
