Staff Appraiser

Mueller Reports is currently at the forefront of the mortgage industry’s evolution from legacy products and processes to a more streamlined model. Traditionally, residential appraisers have been responsible for physically inspecting the homes that they are appraising. Based on changing policies and service level expectations, the appraiser of the future will rely upon a qualified independent third-party to complete the physical inspection, while the appraiser focuses their energy on analysis and report development. Over time, as this new bifurcated process is broadly adapted, Mueller Reports will be central to this change. With investor/lender relationships in place and over 1,500 trained field staff, there is no group better positioned to thrive and grow in this new environment.
