to the website of the Alabama Real Estate Appraisers Board (AREAB).  This Board was created by the State Legislature (ACT 90-639) in 1990.  This followed the Enactment of Public Law 101-73 in 1989 which required that each of the states establish an agency for the licensure, certification and regulation of appraisers.

Our mission
is to protect the public interest by assuring that all consumers of real estate appraisal services receive such services from appraisers who are fully qualified in accordance with both Federal and State Law.
These responsibilities are accomplished by AREAB through a variety of efforts including testing of potential licensees, pre-license and continuing education requirements, investigation of complaints and disciplinary action against licensees as warranted.

We invite your comments and questions via email, fax, telephone or letter.
Thank you!
