We Are a Qualified Source.
The SBA SOP language states that a qualified source is an individual who regularly receives compensation for business appraisals and is accredited by certain recognized organizations including, but not limited to, the American Society of Appraisers (ASA designation) and the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (CVA designation). We hold both of the aforementioned credentials as well as others.
