Attention Nebraska Appraisers
For every appraiser credentialed within the State of Nebraska, the Appraiser Listing link utilizes information from the business information requested on the annual renewal form. If in the past no business information was provided, this area is currently blank and the appraiser name may not appear in the Appraiser Listing section of the database. As we receive the renewal applications, the database is being populated with all of the information provided by you. It is imperative that you provide us with business information on the renewal form if you wish to have your name appear on the Appraiser Listing. Your business information can also be forwarded to the appraiser board office via email or fax for updating into the system. If you do not provide us with current business information, your name may not appear in the Appraiser Listing.
When providing your business information, you should also provide the county name in which your business is located. The database will utilize only one county; multiple counties are not currently supported by the system.
Thank you for your help and patience!
