Located in beautiful, historic, walkable Old Town Alexandria on the banks of the Potomac River overlooking our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., the City of Alexandria’s Finance Department is looking for a detail-oriented, self-starting, and tenacious Appraiser to join our team. Are you familiar with the major components of residential architecture and building construction? Are you a quick study learning professional data management and drawing software? Do you love supporting your community by ensuring residents’ property valuations are fair and accurate? If so, please consider the City of Alexandria as a potential future employer!
As a member of the Real Estate Division, the Appraiser performs mass appraisals of residential and small commercial land and property for assessment purposes. This work is done through in-the-field inspections and in-the-office review of relevant documents and records. Appraisers utilize a variety of software when performing their work, including RealWare to manage appraisal data, Apex to sketch floor plans, and ArcGIS to read and manipulate maps. The ideal candidate possesses a working knowledge of property valuation principles, building construction practices, and real estate transactions and markets and the physical ability and willingness to perform both independent, on-site physical inspections of real property and to collaborate in-office as a member of a team on group projects.
The City of Alexandria’s Finance Department is a friendly, casual, professional work environment. We support our employees’ career development through ongoing training opportunities, tuition reimbursement, and regular participation at Washington-area meetings and conferences. In addition, we facilitate work-life balance through teleworking opportunities and flexible work schedules. If you are looking to build the future of local government finance with a group of smart, hard-working public servants, join us!
