The VINE Rant: How has COVID-19 changed the property appraisal process?

Special guest, Rudy Naraine (Senior Executive National Manager – Broker Services, The Nationwide Group – NAS) sheds some light on how the appraisal service network was changed by the pandemic and how they adapted so quickly to the COVID-19 lending environment.

Tune in to hear Rudy’s first-hand experience over the past few months.
