What they do
As the finish line of his appraisal training approaches, Eugene wanted to set himself up for long term success with a solution to support the beginning stages of his official work as a commercial appraiser and produce better quality reports for years to come.
Eugene researched technology options that could help him accomplish this and determined that Valcre was the most robust option on the market. No other software was as user-friendly or easy to navigate. After a few reports, Eugene was ready to enlist the help of Valcre Assist to knock out the front end tasks.
Valcre Assist helps Eugene save time and money. He leverages Valcre Assist on the front end tasks like researching basic property and demographic information on a subject property, which helps him significantly cut down the time it takes to complete his report. By the time Eugene gets the Excel template back from Valcre Assist, its just a matter of him selecting his comparables and cleaning up the report.
He also saves costs because working with Valcre Assist is like having your own assistant without actually having to hire someone. He doesn’t have to worry about what to do if there isn’t enough work coming in because he can use Valcre Assist on a project-to-project basis.
So, that helped from a time perspective of ensuring Valcre Assist pulls in all of the information so he doesn’t have to and the best part for him is the files Valcre Assist builds are all automatically synced in the same system.
With Valcre Assist, Eugene:
Produces higher quality reports in a quicker fashion. By leveraging Valcre Assist, he makes good time on deadlines, feels less constrained on time and minimizes the human error that comes with doing mundane tasks quickly and under pressure.
Since starting with Valcre and Valcre Assist, Eugene has recommended the platform to the colleague who has been training him. He knows Valcre’s robust software could lessen the time his colleague spends completing a report, doing research, gathering info, inputting it and making adjustments.
