As a respected and influential leader, Cristy Conolly embodies her title as executive vice president of appraisal modernization at Class Valuation. Conolly focuses on a key part of valuation modernization — the responsible standardization of appraisal data. In doing so, she plays a crucial role in eradicating appraisal bias through the use of appraisal technology.
Conolly joined Class Valuation in April 2022 via company acquisition. In that short time, she has proved to be a vital asset to Class Valuation and continues to be a dominant leader in the appraisal space. She uses her 20-plus years of experience in the industry and knowledge as a licensed appraiser to inform the policies and protocols she implements. She has a strong focus on collaboration with industry stakeholders to improve outdated processes and bring equality and diversity into the industry. In the past year, she has implemented the company’s first appraisal bias and diversity protocols. This includes bias-based keyword searches in appraisal reports and fair housing training for all staff. Thanks to Conolly’s efforts, every appraiser employed by Class Valuation takes an appraisal course specific to fair housing and discrimination as it relates to appraising.
