Real Estate Appraisers


To regulate real estate appraisers in accordance with federal and state laws, rules, and policies.


The Real Estate Appraiser Commission strives to protect the public welfare by ensuring that only qualified persons are licensed or certified and that all licensees uphold the highest appropriate professional standards of practice, independence and competency.


Effective August 5, 2021, our rules will allow licensees to take qualifying education (QE) classes online (prerecorded/asynchronous), in a classroom, or virtual (taught live/synchronous). Refer to the approved course list for TN approved QE courses. Online approved courses have “online” in the course title on the approved course list. All other courses on the approved course list are approved for classroom or virtual presentation.

Please see Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1255-01-.12 for further registered trainee requirements.
