Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy is simple: Care and quality. We care about every interaction and make that evident in our daily work. It is our dedication to you the customer that we only deliver quality reports by quality appraisers through quality employees. We are one of the only appraisal management companies in the country started by a former loan officer, so when we say we understand we truly do. We understand your need to be kept up to date with every step of the appraisal. We understand your needs regarding rate locks and month end and most importantly we understand that your borrower is your most important asset.

Our goal is to be the only appraisal company that you will use for every order in the country for the rest of your lending career. The only way for us to do that is to take time to understand what you need and make every effort to accommodate. If you need anything regarding an appraisal or just have questions about an order, please contact us and see the Appraisal-Nation difference.

RCN Capital

RCN Capital is a nationwide private lender that specializes in investment properties. As a nationwide lender, we sell speed of service to our clients. However, as a private lender completing more than 100 loans per month, accuracy in our security is essential. We needed to work with an appraisal management company that would save us time, money and effort while also providing high quality appraisals we can trust. After vetting many nationwide AMCs, RCN Capital® chose Appraisal Nation as our exclusive nationwide valuation provider. Their ability to provide the highest quality appraisals on a consistent basis has made working with them a joy for underwriting. The company’s 5-day turnaround time has been critical to our success as the majority of our business is time sensitive. In addition to this, Appraisal Nation offers outstanding customer service and our contacts have been available to resolve any issues that arise quickly and efficiently. With nationwide coverage, fast turnaround and products for both commercial and residential properties, they have been an integral partner for RCN Capital and I would recommend Appraisal Nation to anybody in need of appraisals.
