MAI Designation


About the Appraisal Institute

maiThe Appraisal Institute is an international membership association of professional real estate appraisers, with more than 18,000 members and 99 chapters throughout the United States, Canada and abroad. Its mission is to support and advance its members as the choice for real estate solutions and uphold professional credentials, standards of professional practice and ethics consistent with the public good.

About the MAI designation

The MAI membership designation is held by appraisers who are experienced in the valuation and evaluation of commercial, industrial, residential and other types of properties, and who advise clients on real estate investment decisions.

Achieving an Appraisal Institute professional designation isn’t easy, and Appraisal Institute members are rightly proud of their accomplishments.

Holding a professional designation from the Appraisal Institute denotes a post-graduate level of achievement. In fact, fewer than 15 percent of all licensed or certified appraisers have earned the right to be called Appraisal Institute designated members. To maintain their designation(s), members must fulfill continuing education requirements on an ongoing basis.

This includes periodic attendance at and passing the exams for Standards of Professional Practice courses.

This commitment to professionalism makes Appraisal Institute members the preferred choice for real estate appraisal and analysis services.
