On August 16, Steve Bartelt earned the Appraisal Institute’s prestigious AI-GRS membership designation. This stands for Appraisal Institute – General Review Specialist, a designation held by real estate appraisers who are experienced in general appraisal review. The Appraisal Institute established a professional appraisal review designation program in response to the growing and critically important role that appraisal review plays in risk management and mitigation for many clients/users of appraisal services. The new designation program is aimed at providing professional appraisal reviewers with the knowledge and skills needed to satisfy issues related to due diligence and risk management often requested by their employers and clients. Steve’s dad introduced him to appraisal work in 1982. Since that time he has been involved in the full time practice of real estate appraisal. Steve is a lifelong resident of Southern New Jersey, born in the City of Camden and raised in Haddon Township. He attended Haddon Township High School, class of 1974. He attended Washington and Jefferson College, Washington, Pennsylvania, class of 1978. He did graduate work at Glassboro State College, University of Delaware, College of Marine Studies, Lewes, and Rutgers University, Camden, receiving a master’s degree from Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) in 1986. He earned the SRA in 1988, and the MAI in 1993. His geographical area of operation has always been southern New Jersey. During his professional career he has had occasion to appraise or consult on a wide variety of assignments, as well as, instruct students in appraisal theory and application. Steve currently resides in Sewell, NJ. His 3 children and 9 grandchildren keep him busy in the “off hours”. He also thanks his dad for his lifelong encouragement, his commitment to him and to the appraisal profession. Congratulations Steven Bartelt, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS!
