With 15 years of appraisal experience, AnnMarie Smith founded AMS Appraisal Solutions. Ms. Smith, ISA AM, CAGA, is a Certified Personal Property Appraiser, Accredited Member of the International Society of Appraisers, and formerly a Certified Residential Appraiser.

Having helped developed the foundation for the appraisal firm in 2004, Ms. Smith also assisted in the transition from residential to personal property appraisals in 2010. During Ms. Smith's tenure as CEO, the company experienced unprecedented, exponential growth every year.
