The Giving Mood

This year Appraisal Buzz and Allterra Group have been in the giving mood and we are just getting started! So far we have given away an Allterra Online course, a free trip to Valuation Expo, and now we are announcing the winner of our iPad giveaway.

As a way to thank our customers and loyal readers of the Appraisal Buzz we decided to do a free iPad giveaway. Last Friday we randomly selected our winner and the free iPad goes to, Christopher Yaecker from Novelty, OH. We called Christopher on Friday to let him know and he was absolutely thrilled of the news. Congratulation’s to Mr. Yaecker, thank you for being a loyal supporter of Allterra Group and Appraisal Buzz.

As I noted before, this has been the year of giveaways and we’re not done yet! For those of you who missed out on these last few prizes, don’t fret, your next chance is right around the corner at Valuation Expo in Baltimore, MD July 11th-13th. You cannot afford to sit on the sidelines and not be a part of the most important event for valuation professionals and of course it’s not all business all the time!

The Appraisal Bee giveaway gives the chance for attendees to interact with the exhibitors. It’s a win-win for appraisers. Appraisers get to speak with potential clients and they are entered to win big prizes. The idea of the game is similar to Bingo but way easier and your odds are better than Vegas. Each participating vendor’s name will be listed on the Bee card, your job is to find each vendor, introduce yourself, and get your Bee card stamped. Once you have each block filled with the correct stamp, return it back to the registration desk. Your completed card will be entered into a box and after lunch on the last CE day of Valuation Expo, the Appraisal Bee winners will be randomly selected.

This is by far one of the biggest hits at Valuation Expo. You have multiple chances to win. Last year some vendors were so generous they gave away two prizes. So what are these prizes we keep talking about? While they change each year here are some of the prizes appraisers have won in the past: Apple Watch, smart TVs, giftcards, Leica Distos, video drone with onboard camera, software programs, and so much more.

We appreciate all of our sponsors and exhibitors who participate in this great event and for donating such fantastic prizes each year. If you register for a trade show or full conference pass for Valuation Expo, you are eligible to play. Make sure you are one of the winners this year and join us in Baltimore, MD July 11th-13th. Register at before you miss out on another great chance to win.
