Real appraiser story

"It's been three weeks now since I switched from ACI to TOTAL.  I am really happy so far.  It's really been an easy transition.  I'm already completing assignments faster, and it's only been three weeks. 

I am loving TOTAL!  I only wish I had made the choice to switch a long time ago.  a la mode's tech support is awesome!"

Lesa Knight, Isom Appraisal
