Dear Clients,

At Vanguard Appraisals,  the health and safety of our employees, customers, and the communities for which they serve is of primary concern to us. We are closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and reports coming from the respective local and state government offices for which we service, as well as their public health departments.

This global pandemic is unprecedented and evolving, so we will be working to communicate details to employees and clients as quickly and efficiently as possible. We are taking proactive steps to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

  • We have instructed our VCS Field Representatives to limit any onsite visits to clients to those which are deemed essential. Our Field Reps will still be available to assist your office by phone, email, or TeamViewer.
  • Many of you rely on Vanguards quality tech support. VCS Tech Support and VCS programming staff will be available as usual to provide you the quality assistance you expect.

We wish you good health!

We love the program and the staff are so helpful! We are now 8 years with Vanguard and we would hate to have to go back to [our previous CAMA provider].
