About us

MyAMC, LLC opened its doors in 2004 under the name A1 Closing Services, Ltd. In December 2013, we rebranded as MyAMC, a name that more accurately describes our market offering – nationwide residential valuation services. Our purpose is to deliver the highest quality appraisals that are compliant with investor, state, and federal Appraiser Independence Requirements. We provide a full spectrum of valuations for all mortgage origination channels: banks, credit unions, wholesalers, and brokers. We offer post-closing quality control services to lenders and investors. We also provide solutions for AMC’s looking to expand into new markets.

Our goal is to optimize customer satisfaction through consistent performance – quality, speed, and compliance. Investing heavily in technology and people, we look for every opportunity to innovate and enhance the user experience. Our customers can easily access our subject matter experts, without having to leave voicemails or endure automated answering services. We believe that these investments provide a solid foundation for sustainable customer relationships.

The principals of continuous improvement are deeply engrained in our organizational culture. We recognize and reward new ideas within our organization. We seek feedback from our customers and vendor panel to drive improvement. Above all, we place a premium on our relationships with stakeholders.

ValuLink, our proprietary appraisal management software, is agile and intuitive. Our customers can implement their business rules - integration with LOS and B2B exchanges, remittance requirements, order status notifications, performance reporting, compliance controls, QC, exclusionary lists, and UCDP submission.
