Midwest Appraisal Management, was the 1st Michigan Realtors® Association owned regional appraisal management company (AMC) in the country. Besides brokers and salespeople, Realtor membership includes a significant number of appraisers. Since the first hints of problems with appraisals surfaced in 2008, the Michigan Realtors® was working at all levels to address issues such as rising costs to the consumer, geographic competence, lack of customary and reasonable fees for appraisers and appraiser independence.
These problems resulted in some creative thinking about how to best provide lenders with superior levels of appraisal services in full compliance with state laws, appraiser independence, USPAP, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, USDA, Dodd-Frank, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and the myriad of other ever changing compliance issues facing lenders. This culminated with the acquisition of Midwest Appraisal Management Group, Inc., an existing regional AMC located within Michigan.
Today, Midwest Appraisal Management is a technology-focused regional appraisal management company that strives to offer lenders superior customer service and partner with the best appraisers, giving them the opportunity to work with the best clients and earn a full fee. Midwest Appraisal Management provides services throughout states in the Midwest including Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Florida. Midwest Appraisal Management is a leader in the appraisal management industry demonstrating the right way to conduct business that is not primarily profit motivated.

― Codie – Lender
“Your company’s process seems to be working well for us. I do have to say your turn time is much appreciated on my end. I was used to waiting 7-10 business days from when the appraiser was on site, and that is much improved. Thanks!”
― Jason – Lender
“Your company is “right on it” when we pose a question and/or revision. Unlike Mercury where we are at the mercy of the appraisers who sometimes don’t look at their email/the website very often.”
