Code of Ethics

Many attempts have been made to educate the public on how to protect themselves when it comes to providing accurate machinery and equipment values.  Oftentimes, people rely on surface-level information from an appraiser, which does not give an indication as to the level of accuracy or competency. We perform our services with ethical obligations to the client and operate under our code of ethics guidelines.
ProBiz Business Appraisals are committed to preserving the public trust inherent in the appraisal process. The purpose of the Code Of Ethics And Competency Appraiser Awareness Program is to protect the public from unsubstantiated or questionable machinery and equipment appraisals.  Our seal serves to alert the public to the documentation we know is necessary to prove that an appraiser is competent.  This assures an appraisal will be substantiated, accurate, irrefutable, defensible and will withstand  scrutiny.
  • Ethical Obligations – Each Certified Appraisal is USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional appraisal Practice) Compliant.
  • Advocacy Only Of The Appraisal  – We are an advocate only of the Appraisal, not of any person or entity, which maintains our objectivity.
  • Certification – We have earned through the NEBB Institute, an industry leader of machinery/equipment appraisal and brokerage, the professional designation of Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraiser (CMEA).
  • Defensible Appraisal – Comprehensive and substantiated estimates of value that hold up to scrutiny with the IRS, lenders, buyers, sellers, courts, CPAs, attorneys, and others.
