BIS’s First Deed Training Class in Dallas Receives Recognition!

BIS Consulting successfully held a Deed Training class at the Hilton Dallas Lincoln Center on November 9, 2017 with an overwhelming attendance of fifty appraisal and property tax professionals from all across Texas! The event initially was planned to be held at the BIS offices for a smaller crowd but as word spread that BIS was offering a 6 TDLR continuing education unit deed specific course, plans quickly changed and a more extensive off-site event was arranged with sponsorship assistance from Thomas Y. Pickett.

TYP, an industry expert at complex appraisal and trusted partner of BIS, helped to provide transportation and lunch for the attendees. Guests were treated to Saltgrass Steakhouse for a decadent plate of garlic mashed potatoes and their choice of the top sirloin & shrimp, rib-eye, or Laredo chicken. Much thanks and gratitude to Brian Lipka of TYP for the generosity of providing such a great lunch for our attendees.

The Deed Training class was highly reviewed by the post-event survey which reports that 100% of the respondents enjoyed the class and 88% received the deed content they were expecting. In addition to the positive reviews, the City of Brookshire honored BIS with an article in their local newspaper, The Times Tribune. The article details the class’s content and discussion topics. Click the button below to read the full article.

With the success of the event, BIS plans to hold more training classes in the future and welcomes all course suggestions. Our goal is to better serve the appraisal and property tax community whether it be affordable technology or training for all staff levels.

Course suggestions can be emailed to us at nahmed@bisconsultants.com or feel free to call us at (800)247-9045.
