Elizabeth Seaters is the Chief of Enforcement for the California Office of Real Estate Appraisers.  Ms. Seaters has been with the department for over thirteen years, hired originally as a Property Appraiser Investigator.  She has represented the California Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers as a presenter and speaker at numerous appraisal seminars, sharing her knowledge and passion for improving the industry.

Mr. Hassler began appraising in 1984 under the tutelage of his father W. Dennis Hassler, SRA with a focus on Marin and Sonoma Counties.  John mostly appraised 1-4 residential properties and smaller commercial properties (warehouse/office/retail/mixed use).  Licensed in 1992 at the certified residential level in CA, John obtained a CA agents license in 1991 (upgraded to broker in 1995).  Mr. Hassler then opened a shop of his own in 1993 with 90% emphasis on appraisal and 10% sales.  1996, Mr. Hassler became president of the Marin County Appraisers Association (subsequently folded into REAA).  He served as a committee member for the local 7,000+ member MLS (BAREIS) from  1999 to 2010, and was elected to their board of directors in 2011 (currently serving a second two-year term).

Mr. Hassler is now employed as an appraiser investigator with the BREA since December 2010 and promoted to Supervising Property Appraiser Investigator in 2013.
