Job Description

NPV Advisors is looking for full-time valuation analysts to be part of our appraisal accelerator program. We are hiring team members to join our January 2023 class. The applicant must be able to work from our offices in Chicago, IL, Newport Beach, CA or Houston, TX.  

The Appraisal Accelerator is a 12-to-18-month program that prepares participants to become commercial real estate appraisers. Analysts will spend the first two months in a formal instruction phase that concludes with an appraisal capstone project. This is followed by on-the-job training in an apprenticeship-style program. Analysts will gain experience in an apprenticeship model whereby the candidate is paired with senior appraisal staff assisting with valuation procedures, modeling using Argus Enterprise and report writing. Analysts will gain familiarity in the appraisal of a wide array of property types with various levels of complexity from single-tenant industrial buildings to complex retail/mixed use developments. 


Our training process is designed to identify and cultivate those who have the dedication and drive to rise to senior-level positions within our firm. Successful candidates will be eager to learn, display comfort in research, analysis, and report writing, and will thrive in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment.


All analysts will be enrolled in courses at the Appraisal Institute to work toward licensing and state certification. Upon completion of the accelerator program, the analyst will have the knowledge and experience to advance to a staff appraisal position with the firm.


The salary for this position ranges from $50,000 to $65,000 annually. Salary will be determined by experience, education, and work location. After approximately six months, the analyst will be eligible for discretionary quarterly bonuses based on quality and work amount. NPV Advisors offers medical, dental, vision, and life insurance as well as a safe-harbor 401K.
