The Greater Illinois Chapter of the International Society of Appraisers



 

Appraisers

 

Our expertly trained, knowledgeable professional appraisers must pass advanced rigorous education and testing to achieve accredited and CAPP status in our ISA organization.  Our membership is both IRS and USPAP qualified.  In most cases the appraisers are willing to travel anywhere within the Greater Chicago Area and to out-of-state locations.
