Vincent B. Vaughn, SRA, AI-RRS, who began his real estate appraisal career in 1977 and is the owner of Vaughn Appraisal Service in Chattanooga, has been awarded the AI-RRS (Appraisal Institute-Residential Review Specialist) designation from the Appraisal Institute.
Mr. Vaughn had held the SRA designation from the Appraisal Institute for 25 years prior to receiving this newest designation. Mr. Vaughn is the first real estate appraiser in the state of Tennessee to receive the AI-RRS designation and is only the second appraiser licensed in the state of Georgia to receive this designation. The AI-RRS designation is a newer designation for appraisers who have demonstrated knowledge and expertise in residential real estate appraisal review.
In addition to operating his company, Mr. Vaughn spent two of the last three years working as a nationwide forensic and retrospective review appraiser with Fannie Mae (FNMA) in Dallas, helping to recover some of the funds lost in the economic downturn of the past few years.
Mr. Vaughn and his wife Patricia reside in East Brainerd and are members of Ridgedale Baptist Church.
