  About Us

California Coalition of Appraisal Professionals (CaCAP) was created with a sense of urgency. As we enter a new age, there are troubling signs that adverse forces have aligned and are working against the continuation of an evolving professional appraisal community in service to the consumer. Recent events have, and will continue to, create havoc in the marketplace. They threaten the financial security of the individual appraiser. They are damaging to California consumers who need reliable and responsible service. Action is required!

As we have throughout our business lives, we made the decision to act - CaCAP was born to do something to ensure a different and more beneficial future. To take ACTION!
