Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers

Board Updates: Please Read

September 1, 2020

The Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers currently has three vacancies and is unable to conduct business until at least one position is filled. This will result in application delays for most license types. We do not have an estimated timeframe for resuming application review.

If you would like to apply for appointment to one of these positions, please visit the application site. Prior to applying, you may wish to read more about the roles and responsibilities of Alaska’s volunteer licensing board members and division processes and authority on our board resources page.

During the time when the board is unable to achieve a quorum, licensed appraisers may continue to operate as usual. The Appraisal Subcommittee authorized by the U. S. Congress to provide oversight of this program has emphasized that there are no restrictions on appraisers or concerns about Alaska’s compliance with federal requirements simply due to vacancies on the board. If you have concerns about program operations during this time, email realestateappraisers@alaska.gov.

The Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The Board consists of one general real estate appraiser, one residential real estate appraiser, one mortgage banking executive, one public member, and one at-large member. Board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The Board adopts regulations to carry out the laws governing real estate appraisal practice in Alaska. It makes final certification decisions and takes disciplinary action against people who violate the certification laws. The Board meets two times a year and offers a scheduled public comment period at each meeting. Meeting dates and agendas are available from the licensing examiner.
