Objective and Function

The primary objective of the Delaware Council on Real Estate Appraisers is to protect the public from unsafe practices and practices which tend to reduce competition or fix prices for services. The Council must also maintain standards of professional competence and service delivery. To meet these objectives, the Council

  • develops standards for professional competency
  • promulgates rules and regulations
  • adjudicates complaints against professionals and, when necessary, imposes disciplinary sanctions.

The Council issues three categories of licenses to real estate appraisers (RPAs) – licensed RPA, certified residential RPA and certified general RPA – as well as trainee appraiser licenses. The Council also issues temporary practice permits, certifies assessors and licenses appraisal management companies.
The Council’s statutory authority is in 24 Del. C., Chapter 40.



The Council meets the third Tuesday of each month at 9:30 a.m., except for August and December. All meetings are open to the general public and are held in the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, in Dover.

To ensure that business (such as a license application) is on the agenda for the Council to consider at its next meeting, submit all documentation to the Council office no later than 4:30 PM ten full working days before the meeting date.
