As a state government regulatory agency, our mission is to serve and protect the public interest in all real estate appraisal related activities. We accomplish this through the fair and equitable administration and enforcement of the Louisiana Real Estate Appraisers Law (LSA-R.S. 37:3391 et seq.), the development of education programs that promote advancement of the real estate appraisal industry, and the adoption of regulations and standards that reinforce the role of the real estate appraiser in performing objective and impartial appraisals. It is our goal to ensure that real estate appraisal services are provided to the people of Louisiana by qualified and competent practitioners who adhere to the law and rules and established professional standards.
