What sets VanEd apart for Appraisal Education:

Van Education Center appraisal school is owned and operated by Burton Lee, who has 20+ years of experience in residential and commercial real estate appraisal. This practical experience provides our students the opportunity to learn theoretical concepts as well as how to apply them.

Most appraisal courses are eligible for a 5-day free trial enrollment. Unlike other schools, we don't hide our courses until after you pay. The ability to explore with no commitment is unique among appraisal schools, and is the best way for you to understand how our online courses can work for you.

We are confident that after you have seen how easy it is to use the course and how clearly the information is presented you will want to begin your appraisal education with VanEd.

All instructors are licensed, practicing appraisers with many years of experience.

VanEd provides a number of options for communicating with our instructors:

  • Online Q&A - search our online database of questions & answers from other students, or post your own for an instructor response.
  • Email - While the Q&A system is your best, first option, we are always happy to answer direct emails.
  • Phone - Instructors are available by phone during our regular office hours (Monday - Friday 9AM-5PM, Mountain Time)
