Founder and CEO, certified appraiser, speaker, presenter, trainer and writer – these are the many roles Brian Coester has taken on in the mortgage industry. Coester started out as an appraiser with his father’s Coester Appraisal Group and has been running CoesterVMS for nearly 10 years. The company provides appraisals and appraisal technology, and Coester “has been instrumental in building the CoesterVMS’ technology infrastructure and service culture since taking the helm in 2007,” says a colleague. He helped develop the company’s first mobile application for appraisal management companies and is also known to be the man behind CloudControl, the only appraisal process management software built on the platform.

Business will continue to grow until Coester and his team reach their goal of “seeing two of every 10 real estate transactions go through the CoesterVMS system within the next decade,” as Coester puts it. He also invests in his company by looking after the wellness of his team, challenging them to participate in a fitness campaign that promotes healthy eating and exercise.
