KayOkao ,

So helpful for Internal ATMs

This podcast is very helpful for internal ATMs who maybe don’t do more than one or two appraisals a year. Reading the model is fine, and very educational, but hearing people have a conversation about Practice Areas and aspects of MDDAP in understandable language is gold. It really enhances understanding of the whole process. More episodes please!
