I am a recently registered user.
I intend to try making major rewrites to sections in appraisal and valuation and some edits to some of the aviation articles and to articles involving southwest Missouri, but I need input from others. Please feel free to add comments to my talk page. I have ideas on some major changes, but I do not know what viewpoint the user community has about the subject.
If I make an edit that offends or is not done right, please feel free to undo or send me an e-mail at KTrimble@aol.com or add comments to my talk page.
To see what I am working on, go to User:KTrimble/Sandbox.
I will be adding more as I learn and as I have time.
My Appraisal Background
I am an appraiser in Branson, Missouri USA.
I have extensive training and twenty years experience in real estate appraisal, mostly from AI, Lowman, NAIFA, etc. I also have training in appraising machinery and technical specialties from the ASA.
I am an MAI designated member of the Appraisal Institute (president of the Ozark Mountain Chapter) and a member of the American Society of Appraisers (seeking an ASA in MTS and Real Property Urban).
I am a certified general real estate appraiser in Missouri and Arkansas and have been certified in Kansas, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Tennessee (for specific assignments, some were temporary permits)
I have extensive experience in appraising commercial property, primarily for litigation or financing, mostly in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas.
I am also a licensed real estate broker in Missouri. I am also seeking a CCIM designation.
My Aviation Background
I am a private pilot, multi-engine rated. (I also appraise aircraft.)
I have been flying since I was a teenager. However, I have very poor eyesight that has always prevented me from getting more than a 3rd class medical, so I never pursued a flying career.
I learned to fly on my own, not in the military, so I had to privately pay for all of my time. So I have only 1,400 hours, not the thousands of hours that professional pilots and military pilots can boast of. However, I have experience in a wide range of smaller aircraft, mostly antiques.
