The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) is hiring a new Commissioner. Our long-serving Commissioner, Douglas Oldmixon, is retiring at the end of March 2020. The Commissioner serves as the agency leader for both TALCB and for the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), and is responsible for organizational culture and day-to-day operations of the agency. This includes managing staff and agency resources, overseeing the annual budget, and developing and implementing a strategic plan in collaboration with TREC and TALCB policymakers appointed by the Governor.
Together TREC and TALCB oversee the providers of real estate brokerage, appraisals, property inspections, home warranties, right-of-way services, and timeshare projects. The agency provides licensing, education, and complaint investigation services, as well as regulation and enforcement of state and federal laws and rules that govern each of these areas of service to Texas consumers.
