Real estate valuation and appraisal firm Class Valuation, formerly Class Appraisal, has announced the appointment of John Dingeman as chief appraiser.

Dingeman will oversee all quality control efforts, underwriting support, and the appraiser resource center. He will report directly to Scot Rose, chief innovation officer at Class Valuation.

Dingeman is a familiar figure in the industry, serving as the president of the National Association of Appraisers and as the former president for the Coalition of Arizona Appraisers. Prior to his appointment as chief appraiser, Dingeman worked for Landmark Network, which Class Valuation acquired last month.

“John’s extensive background and vast knowledge of the appraisal industry is a huge asset to Class Valuation,” said Rose. “As our chief appraiser, Dingeman will provide tremendous insight and leadership as we continue to evolve and innovate how we engage, maintain quality, and select our providers. Furthermore, he will help our mission to lead thoughtful change as we modernize the appraisal and valuation process.”

“It is my mission to ensure our profession keeps pace with the industry well into the future and to help appraisers stay relevant,” said Dingeman. “This means educating appraisers, promoting professionalism, clients and consumers alike, preserving appraiser independence, and challenging appraisers to be the very best in our business. Class Valuation is poised to bring about sustainable change in our space, and I look forward to being a part of that vision.”

“With more than fifteen years of industry experience, John brings tremendous knowledge, and we could not be more pleased to have him join the team,” said John Fraas, president at Class Valuation. “Class is focused on delivering the highest quality for its appraisers and clients, and we are eager to shape the valuation industry in 2019 and beyond.”
