2012 AMC Resource Guide Now Available

“I purchased the AMC directory last week and am very happy. I signed up for 4 companies and already received two orders.” – Diane F.

Hi all,
I removed deadbeat AMCs and removed all the companies that have gone out of business, lowered the number of AMCs to under 300 – no need to waste your time applying to companies that don’t send work, and added some new clients. I updated my list so that the top 45 companies are the ones that send me over 95% of all my AMC work. I also updated the marketing information, tips and advice on my best techniques for getting more business and making more money in 2012. ~ Bryan Knowlton

AGA uses law firm to request documents related to Customary and Reasonable Fees

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23, 2012 – [List of AMCs] On behalf of the American Guild of Appraisers, today the law firm Garvey Schubert Barer filed a request with the Federal Reserve Board under the Freedom of Information Act seeking a wide variety of documents related to the regulations on customary and reasonable compensation of fee appraisers that were issued by the Board in October 2011.
