Chief Assessment Officer

The analysis and recommendations that result from an IAAO audit can be invaluable to any Chief Appraiser and can be used as a road map to improving the office…the report and recommendations definitely give you a clear idea of exactly what needs to be addressed and where your office stands as far as the industry is concerned. I have used the IAAO throughout my career for their professional opinion and I will continue to use them.

Northern Ireland
Commissioner of Valuation

Carrying out a revaluation of over 700,000 residential parcels in one appraisal in Northern Ireland on a new basis and after a gap of 30 years was certainly a challenge for the Government’s Valuation Agency. Strong international working relationships with IAAO were built up over a period of ten years culminating in the commissioning of IAAO Professional Consulting. The professional input of IAAO expertise to the training of staff and the leading technical advice at all levels to the project was instrumental in the recognized achievement of this major revaluation exercise.
