A Question About CMEA Certification through NEBB Institute Deserves an Answer

December 7, 2011

In perusing an appraisers’ forum online recently, we came across this post from a Northern California Certified Residential Appraiser:

I keep getting emiails [sic] from this company saying how much I need to be certified to appraise equipment etc. Anyone have any experience with them was it a good one.

Since there were no responses to the post, we thought we’d reply by revisiting a previous blog post titled “NEBB Institute Members’ Thoughts on Becoming CMEAs.

Here is what a few NEBB Institute members have said about being a CMEA:

“I would recommend every business broker add the professional credential of CMEA. NEBB provides all the tools you need from comprehensive training to an exclusive Appraiser Database to turnkey marketing system. My CMEA professional designation has added money to the bottom line and given me an avenue to service my clients that I did not have before. It’s really opened a lot of doors for me that were otherwise closed.”

~D. Hall, CMEA, FCBI, BCB, SBA, McKinney, TX

“I recommend every business valuation contain a certified value of its machinery and equipment. That’s why my company uses the professional services of a Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraiser certified by NEBB Institute. I can rest assured that the machinery and equipment values are accurate, defensible, and irrefutable.”

~G. Abraham, CMEA, CSBA, CBS, Houston, TX

“My primary interest is in valuations. In many instances, machinery and equipment is the key component of the underlying value in a business valuation. It was difficult to find someone who could economically get me the fair market value of equipment. The CMEA Certification gives me the opportunity to obtain the training and professional credentials to provide that key piece in my valuations instead of contracting it out to someone else.

~J. Love, CPA/PFS, CFP, CVA, CMEA, SBA, Abilene, TX

Here’s hoping that answers this person’s question. If you’ve thought about becoming a CMEA or a NEBB Institute Member, please contact us.

The NEBB Institute endorses and strives to observe the highest standards of professional ethics to preserve the public trust inherent in the professional appraisal practice.
