As one of the most respected AMCs, everything we do is based on strong experience, not trial and error to ensure we provide you with the best possible product. As pioneers in the appraisal industry, we have pursued a long-term vision to develop the organization, technology, and tools to make the Appraisal Process as simplified as possible in today’s and tomorrow’s world.
We have built our company to focus on long-term goals while consistently delivering the best possible products and services on an ongoing basis. We have assembled over the past nine years a team of remarkable breadth and depth, continually attracting outstanding new talent to our uniquely productive environment.
Collateral Management was a division of The Appraisal Firm which was established in 1998 with the goal of creating a statewide appraisal management company. The company concentrated on working with national, regional and local credit unions and banks as a central place to order and receive residential, commercial, and agricultural appraisal reports. After 10 years of hard work, The Appraisal Firm became a five-state appraisal company.
In 2009, COLLATERAL MANAGEMENT officially emerged from The Appraisal Firm. The goal of Collateral Management is to provide a nationwide appraisal management service for lenders, credit unions and community banks that conforms to current guidelines. Collateral Management strives to make the transition into compliance with the new Federal Appraisal Guidelines simple, easy, and profitable. Collateral Management does one thing and we do it well. We provide quality appraisals and ensure compliance to our clients.
It is our duty to act with honesty, loyalty, integrity, good faith, and transparency, and to put the interests of our clients above our own. We believe we will be successful if our clients are successful.
We are more than an “outsourcing” solution. We are providing a superior level of service to our clients from all aspects of the AMC process. Everything is personalized to meet your needs. We do not believe in the one fits all philosophy. From the start, your Appraisal Management solution is customized for you starting with your own appraisal panel, turn time, fees and underwriting requirements.
Once we determine what your needs are, we can then do our job…quality and compliance. We can do it all for you…assigning, tracking, status updates, quality control, review, market value disputes, appraisal warranty, accounts receivables and record retention. It is our job to make your job easier.
