IRR-Residential, a Westwood, Kan.-based provider of real estate appraisal services for lenders and attorneys, has spun off from Integra Realty Resources and changed its name to Accurity Valuation. The company, which operates as a franchisor, will continue to render its services to customers through an expanding nationwide network of franchise and member appraisers, thereby giving experienced valuation professionals an alternative to working for an appraisal management company.
As part of the spinoff, Accurity Valuation has restructured its ownership, board of directors and corporate management. Thomas M. Munizzo, former IRR-Residential chief appraiser and compliance officer, has been appointed president of Accurity Valuation. Munizzo is also a former president of the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers.
‘For nearly a decade, IRR-Residential has stood apart from other appraisal companies based on the local expertise and analytical mindset that remains prevalent among our organization,’ says Munizzo. ‘As Accurity Valuation, we will build on this reputation while developing the strongest and most knowledgeable full-service appraisal company our industry has ever seen.’
