A new partnership between the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) and the Texas Workforce Commission Civil Rights Division (TWC) benefits Texas consumers who may experience discrimination or bias in their home appraisal.
The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board met in early May and heard updates from staff, a presentation on Practical Applications of Real Estate Appraisal (PAREA), and proposed and adopted rules.
The Texas Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board met on Friday, February 25, 2022, and approved a slate of new volunteer appraisal reviewers, appointed its representative to the new Audit Committee, and discussed complaints made in bad faith.

Happy October to all of you! I hope this message finds you well. I am grateful that the weather seems to be changing a bit so that we can get outside and enjoy.
The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) is pleased to announce the launch of the TALCB complaint portal. This simple-to-use tool allows consumers to file complaints directly on the TALCB website. It also allows consumers to check the status of their complaints online. In addition, it integrates backend efficiencies for staff, which decreases complaint processing times. The complaint portal is located on the Filing a Complaint page of the TALCB website.
September in Texas. The month we wish for fall, with pumpkin spice lattes and cooler weather. In reality, we have to wait many more weeks before going outside without melting in the sun. Here’s to the first cold front coming soon.
This September, we remember the 20th anniversary of September 11. And as I listen to that day relived, I relive my own version of the day with the hope that we never experience another day of such despair and sadness. And may we never forget those who lost their lives that day, so many of whom were rushing to care for others.
Summer is almost over, and I cannot believe how quickly time has flown. What we do is a key part of the real estate industry in Texas, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work in this state with so many hardworking, knowledgeable license holders who make a difference in the lives of so many Texans every day.
