to the website of
the Alabama Real Estate Appraisers Board (AREAB). This Board
was created by the State Legislature (ACT 90-639) in 1990.
This followed the Enactment of Public Law 101-73 in 1989 which
required that each of the states establish an agency for the
licensure, certification and regulation of appraisers.
Our mission is
to protect the public interest by assuring that all consumers of
real estate appraisal services receive such services from
appraisers who are fully qualified in accordance with both Federal
and State Law.
These responsibilities are accomplished by
AREAB through a variety of efforts including testing of potential
licensees, pre-license and continuing education requirements,
investigation of complaints and disciplinary action against
licensees as warranted.
We invite your comments and
questions via email, fax, telephone or letter.
