Another Compliment

I just wanted to thank you guys for everything you do. We had an appraiser stop into the bank to pick up plans and he said he loved working with you guys. As you know, they are not generally thrilled with banks that use AMC’s, so I really appreciate what you do to make our appraisers happy!

Have a great day!

"Our staff members who have direct contact with your company have expressed their complete satisfaction with your firm. The customer service afforded to our company is excellent. Communication between our company and yours has been friendly, courteous, and professional as well as prompt. The review of each appraisal is thorough as reflected by the check sheet that accompanies each completed request.

My own personal impression of the company, from the prompt responses to difficulties arising from hardware failure such as telephone or e-mail lapses, is very favorable. SAMCO works to resolve issues fully and promptly and keeps clients informed of the resolutions and their time frames.

We are truly satisfied with the easy cost effective compliance solution to the Home Valuation Code of Conduct that SAMCO has provided to us since the inception of the code."

Home Federal

Mid June of 2009, Home Federal Savings and Loan Association of Nebraska signed an agreement with SAMCO as an AMC (Appraisal Management Company) to meet the requirements of the HVCC (Home Valuation Code of Conduct) for the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae agencies.

The signup process with SAMCO was simple and they were very agreeable to our requested terms needed in order to meet our requirements and guidelines. I believe we were their first Nebraska client and since Home Federal Savings and Loan's home office is located in Lexington, Nebraska with branches located in Superior, Hastings and Holdrege, they had to develop a roster of appraisers for our use. They used our approved appraiser list as a starting point to contact the appraisers for their roster. I understand they negotieated the rate/terms with the appraisers at that point.

Our first order was placed with them shortly after the agreement was signed and we have been pleased with their turn times and ease of using their website. The website is user friendly for placing orders and tracking the status of the order. They have a remarkable email notification system that allows a status notification at the request of the necessary people in the processing area.

The preliminary reviews that are preformed help reduce the required corrections we need to request at the Bank's end. The response time for any corrections or additional information required by our underwriters has been excellent.

With the change to using an appraisal management company, we were disappointed that several of our approved appraisers did not sign up immediately with SAMCO though we felt we had priced our approaisal fee at the standard rate in our area.

In closing, SAMCO has made the transition to this new regulartion very smooth. Their service is excellent to date and as we continue our relationship, I feel we are both gaining in our knowledge of how appraisals and values vary across the country.
