Appraising in Atlanta?

One of the advantages of owning your own business is being able to travel for business and write off the trip.  This was the case over Labor Day.  We have a client in Atlanta, that we have not met face to face.  So we decided to make a working vacation out of it and head to the Atlanta Motor Speedway the same weekend.

I want to thank Paul Kelley, Stephen Dunseith, and Michael Cincotta for the warm reception, good food, and productive time together.  In preparation for this trip, Paul and I talked about me doing some training for the production staff when we came down, and Paul and I decided on the topic of "how to spot inflated reports".

Putting this training together had an unexpected benefit.  It gave me a different perspective into the world of lending that gave me an idea for writing a new program.  There will be more on that later.  All in all, we had a great time in Atlanta, and look forward to the next chance to visit our out-of-state clients.
