Dave Nolting – Appraiser: Guidelines for Property Appraisals Dave Nolting has worked in the real estate market for more than 45 years. Initially, Dave worked as a Real Estate Agent until the mid-1990's when he began working as a Property Appraiser. All property appraisers work for mortgage finance companies (e.g., banks, mortgage lenders) and are responsible to these companies. Their business, however, is regulated by Real Estate Boards. The Property Appraisers are certified by these boards and they operate in compliance with the requirements and principles of the Boards under uniform procedures and forms approved by the Boards.
