Golden will report to COO Steve Baczkowski and will manage Accurate Group’s staff appraisers, appraisal compliance, and regulatory issues.

“Michele has had an impressive career to date, and as a proven leader in real estate valuations, I’m very excited to welcome her to the team,” Baczkowski said. “I’m extremely impressed with her knowledge and experience and am looking forward to the strategic advances Michele, along with our highly skilled valuation team, will achieve as they drive the company’s vision forward.”

Golden most recently held the role of residential real estate consultant on the valuation leadership team at Wells Fargo, and has approximately 30 years of executive level real estate appraising and lending experience with national banks, federal agencies, investment banks, and financial services companies, as well as a major appraisal management company.

“I look forward to using my experience and subject-matter expertise to support our customers and improve product delivery through the continued use of innovative appraisal technology,” Golden said. “And I’m very pleased for the opportunity to work with such a seasoned management team to accelerate the company’s growth.”

Golden is a subject-matter expert in appraisal and valuation, and an avid supporter of The Appraisal Institute’s Appraiser Diversity Initiative, the premier nationwide program sponsored by Accurate Group and designed to attract new entrants to the real estate appraisal field while fostering diversity in the profession.
