Todd Henderson, MAI, AI-GRS

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Current and previous jobs & responsibilities: I currently am a Director at CBRE Valuation and Advisory Services and lead the multifamily team in Washington and Oregon. I supervise four production appraisers and mentor other appraisers in our office, and collaborate with two others in our Portland office. My daily focus is on multifamily products (both institutional and private capital investment grade) in primary, secondary and tertiary markets, but I have experience in valuation of all commercial property types. I also have specialized experience relating to supply and demand analysis and the valuation of Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties as well as Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) complexes. I am also responsible for assignment procurement for my team members and provide internal quality control review. I have also helped design report templates for CBRE’s national and local platforms and also serve on CBRE’s multifamily advisory council.

Previous professional experience: Before I became an appraiser I did property inspections for a Fannie Mae DUS lender for loan servicing purposes. My territory covered the Pacific Northwest as well as California, Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Michigan. Prior to this line of work, I was a Project Manager/Superintendent for a small general contractor specializing in industrial ventilation systems here in the Puget Sound region. I was responsible for overseeing field construction and subcontractor coordination. I also wrote safety plans and user manuals and trained end-users. Some of my customers included Boeing Commercial Aircraft, Paccar/Kenworth Truck Company, Starbucks, Hexcel Structures, St. Gobain Performance Plastics, and other smaller local companies. I even traveled to the People’s Republic of China to supervise installation of a finishing system in a newly constructed factory and was the lead consultant during product start-up.

While these two professional experiences were not appraisal related, they both were real property related, and I gained insight into being a proficient professional writer as well as understanding construction techniques and physical deficiencies. I also learned how to manage my customers as well as my subcontractors. Looking back, working with city building inspectors and Fannie Mae auditors, taught me to be detail oriented, and helped prepare me in working with various users of appraisal services.

I am also the facility manager at a neighborhood church and serve as an on-call maintenance person at another church in my neighborhood as well.

Brief summary  of qualifications for the elective position: My parents modeled giving back to the community, and I recall them being involved in many organizations I was involved in as a child. I share this same sentiment, and have done my best to give back of my time to organizations and activities that I support. I have been involved with the Fall Conference for five years both as a moderator and as chair, and represented the Seattle Chapter at LDAC for three years. I have also represented our chapter as a Regional Representative in 2015 and 2016, as a Director in 2017, and I also currently serve as Secretary for the Seattle Chapter. I am working with the Education Committee in addition to working with the Fall Conference this year again as well.

Thank you for considering me for this position.

Vice President

Michael L. Lamb, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, AI-RRS

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Current and previous jobs & responsibilities: I’m the Senior Appraisal Manager at BECU, overseeing the order, process, and quality control of approximately 500 appraisal orders per month. I work with a great team of professionals and my knowledge of the appraisal profession – in both residential and commercial appraisal – helps to guide my process. My duties also include navigating regulations and ensuring as much risk as possible is mitigated through the appraisal process.

Previous professional experience:  I’ve been a real estate appraiser my entire career, having discovered the appraisal profession while getting my real estate finance degree at Washington State University. After graduation, I began my career as a residential staff appraiser, where I learned about appraising and familiarized myself with the Puget Sound market. Through a merger, I found myself working for Washington Mutual, and when they outsourced their appraisal department in 2006, I transitioned to commercial appraising, initially working in Seattle for Integra Realty Resources, then moving to NYC where I worked with Cushman & Wakefield. After about three years in NYC, the west coast was calling, and I secured a position with Colliers International as a production appraiser. I later moved to HomeStreet Bank, where I became a review appraiser, honing my appraisal skills through the reading of others’ work. I’m now in a management position, where I write appraisal policy, create efficiencies, and advise on appraisal quality. The one thing that hasn’t changed is I continue to learn – every day this industry provides a new perspective or challenge, and every day I come home with a bit more knowledge.

The Great Recession taught me that education – unlike wealth – cannot be taken by an economic cycle, and in 2013 I added the MAI to my existing SRA designation. My AI-GRS and AI-RRS designations soon followed. Recently, I was honored to be chosen by AI National Leadership to be a Discussion Leader at the Leadership, Development and Advisory Council in Washington, DC. Subsequently I was appointed by the Appraisal Institute to the National University Relations Panel.


Through my career path, the Seattle Chapter of the Appraisal Institute has been my guide. My time with the NYC and New Jersey chapters of the Appraisal Institute allowed me to appreciate the level of professionalism that the Seattle Chapter demonstrates – and only later, when I became involved in regional and national leadership, did I learn the Seattle Chapter has a reputation as one of AI’s most respected chapters. Our dedicated membership and professional support allow our chapter to reach this high mark. As a chapter leader, I would strive to continue this service, focusing on continued outreach, service, and education.

My career as a residential and a commercial appraiser allows me to relate to the entire profession. I’ve been a production appraiser – in both the residential and commercial roles – and I’ve been a client on the lender side. This background provides a unique professional prospective, and after nearly 27 years in the industry, I hope to put my experience to work representing the Seattle Chapter.

Brief summary  of qualifications for the elective position: Originally from the Spokane area, I moved to Seattle after attaining a Real Estate Finance degree from Washington State University. My first job was a residential staff appraiser with Great Western Bank, where I learned the nuance of the various markets within the Puget Sound. I later moved to the commercial side of appraising, leveraging my residential background in subdivision appraising and then on to other commercial property types. With a broad background in both residential and commercial valuation, I moved to the client side of the business, first as a commercial reviewer at HomeStreet Bank and now as the Chief Appraiser at BECU, where I oversee both residential and commercial valuation. I’ve remained active with the Appraisal Institute throughout my career, including as a Discussion Leader at LDAC, and various committee positions within the Seattle Chapter.

Briana Criqui, SRA, AI-RRS

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Current and previous jobs & responsibilities: For the past 11 years, I have co-owned a residential appraisal company. This business started with just two of us, benefitting from our collaboration by better serving our clients, and leaning from each other. We soon added other appraisers to our team and have enjoyed the sharing, learning, and mentoring, which often goes in both directions. In addition to performing appraisals on a variety of residential property types, I am  currently mentoring my second trainee, and enjoy being able to offer guidance and support to the other certified appraisers who work with us.

Previous professional experience: My previous professional experience is almost entirely related to appraising, as I have been an Appraiser the large majority of my adult life. My career in appraising began in 1989 as a trainee to a commercial appraiser in California, and I earned my General Certification in 1994. I moved to Washington in 1995, which was not a reciprocal state, started a family, and sadly allowed my license to lapse, In 2001 I began training as a residential appraiser, and earned my residential certification in 2005. My business partner and I decided to collaborate in 2009.
