AXIS was founded by Michael Simmons, a lending professional, and Kim Perotti, a manager at a top-tier appraisal firm, who had a great working relationship in the years prior to HVCC (now AIR). When HVCC hit in 2009, Michael was fearful of appraisal management companies that would send un-vetted appraisers 25 miles from their offices to do appraisals in areas they were unfamiliar with, and Kim’s firm was equally reticent to work with unknowledgeable AMCs that would pay a small fraction of the fee they collected for the appraisal. These two professionals decided they had a better idea – to develop an appraisal management company that respected the hard work done by competent, local appraisers, and served lenders, borrowers and brokers by providing reliable, timely, and accurate appraisals. The founders believed strongly that within the new landscape of HVCC/AIR, value, customer service, and accuracy should not be sacrificed. They ultimately created a company that spans the entire country and serves some of the largest banks and most sophisticated mortgage brokers in the industry.
