Jacobson earns appraisal designation

Published: Tuesday, March 12, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Jeff Jacobson of Jacobson and Associates Real Estate Appraisals and Consulting Ltd. has earned the Appraisal Institute’s MAI membership designation.

This is held by appraisers who are experienced in the valuation of commercial, industrial, residential and other types of complex real estate, and who advise clients on real estate investment decisions.

By earning the MAI designation, Jacobson has joined an elite group of appraisers who have met rigorous professional requirements relating to education, testing, experience, and demonstration of knowledge, understanding and ability. The MAI designation is earned upon the successful completion of a graduate-level curriculum, which includes a comprehensive exam, a written demonstration appraisal report and 4,500 hours worth of qualifying experience.

MAI designated members are recognized experts in appraising a variety of real estate and form a business network encompassing markets nationwide and around the world. In 2006, Jacobson earned the Appraisal Institute’s SRA designation. Fewer than 2,000 appraisal professionals in the world hold both designations.
