MountainSeed Appraisal Management, LLC provides nationwide* appraisal management and evaluation services to community and regional leaders. Throughout the years, MountainSeed has become a pioneer in the industry by creating and living out best practices that set it apart from other appraisal services providers. Unlike some other AMCs, we do more than just push paper around and manage orders. We work with lenders to help them understand the ever-changing regulatory environment and anticipate legislative changes. We are also committed to developing sustainable, long-term solutions that are mutually beneficial to our bank clients and to the appraisal community. We view appraisers as key stakeholders in our business, and treat them with the respect they deserve.
A Couple Great Education Opportunities:
MountainSeed Appraisal Management was founded under the principals of continuing to add value to our clients every day in our service offerings, and in daily life. One way we have found this is possible is through our AMC appraisal platform.
Some of the features of MountainSeed's Appraisal Management
A couple things that our clients think make us GREAT:
At MountainSeed, we have developed a reputation in the industry with community and regional lenders as offering a "different" type of appraisal management services. We believe that our clients want value a healthy relationship between lender and their appraisal panel and desire to continue to foster that healthy relationship. It is because of this mindset that most appraisers that work with MountainSeed Appraisal Management have said they are not too fond of AMC's but they LOVE doing business with MountainSeed. In addition to all of this we believe that nothing should be done with a bad attitude, and you will notice that with our people, and it will be apparent when you speak with our clients, appraisers, and many state and national banking associations including the Virginia Bankers Association, Community Bankers Associations, and the American Bankers Association, and the Appraisal Institute!
While we could never take the place of our clients compliance department or responsibilities, we maintain internal compliance personnel to assist us in developing industry best practices. Through this process we work with State and Federal agencies to understand the ways that we can continue to improve and try and pass that information along to our clients. It is because of this that we have been featured in many industry publications including National Mortgage News, American Banker, Housing Wire, The Virginia Banker, Tennessee Banker, and spoken at local and national events for the American Bankers Association, Michigan Bankers Association, SNL Financial, Georgia Bankers Association, and others.
We believe that if we quit adding value to our clients they shouldn't have to work with us anymore! With that said, our service is strictly pay as you go. No setup fees, no minimum orders. If you ever feel like the service isn't offering you what you need you simply quit using us. In addition to this, you don't even have to use us for everything. You can order full appraisals and review, reviews only, orders only, or one of our other offerings a la carte!
Lastly, we believe that life is too short to work with people you don't like or who don't care about you. At MountainSeed, we believe that there are many more important things you do during the day than order appraisals, and we strive to make your experience during our process enjoyable so that we can be one of those bright spots in your life.
