In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Texas Real Estate Commission and the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (the Agency) extended all deadlines for two months for all license holders and applicants statewide with license expiration or application deadlines in August and September. This extension ended on October 31, 2017.
The Board met on Friday May 5th for its regular quarterly meeting with 100% of members in attendance. In addition to hearing updates on customer service, license processing, exam administration, complaint investigation and enforcement, and financial performance matters, other administrative business was also accomplished, including an update on the long-term facilities master plan, appointment of investment officers and the annual report of appraiser demographics in Texas.
