And we like it that the reviewers are very experienced.

Of all of the AMC’s I deal with, Valuation Management Group is by far the most efficient, communicative and professional above the rest. The staff at Valuation is very helpful in reviewing and expediting orders. The fees are customary for our market area and payment is made on a scheduled time frame. I highly recommend them to any appraisal firm or client.

My experience and business relationship with VMG has been a pleasant one. The professionalism of managers & reviewers that I have dealt with during my time doing business with VMG has been superb. I believe their reputation and ways of conducting business calls for the very best of an appraiser which in return produces quality work from their selected appraisers.
VMG, I wanted to contact you to let you know I am very happy with the people you have working there. When I had any question, the response time was so short. I am impressed by the level of service your company has given to me, the appraiser.
The VMG staff is very professional, available, and responsive whenever information is needed for an appraisal assignment. In addition, their prompt payment of invoices helps make doing business with them a pleasure.
