Mark Lindsay
Chapter Vice President
Mark was the founding Vice President of the North Bay Chapter.  Mark has been a licensed appraiser since 1992. His career started with a small independent firm in San Rafael, California. Shortly after licensing in 1991, he worked for Bank of America as a staff appraiser, senior appraiser, and finally on special projects for the national appraisal group. He took a position with Irwin Home Equity as the manager of the appraisal department managing appraisal services and reviews for retail, wholesale and correspondent lending in 31 states. A desire to work closer to home brought him to Washington Mutual where he won the 2005 Kudos award for production, nationwide recognition for the top 1% in the company. With a variety of production, review, and credit risk experiences gained in the prior years, he decided to leave banking and has been self-employed since 2005.  His firm specializes in Marin county valuation projects and he resides with his wife in Sonoma.
