The Appraisal Institute of Canada Names Simon Chin AACI, P.App., Managing Director of VerraGroup Edmonton,

as Canada's Top Appraiser Under 40 for 2018 at it's National Conference in Quebec City

June 18, 2018 

The Appraisal Institute of Canada has named Simon Chin, Managing Partner of Bourgeois Brook Chin Associates, VerraGroup's Edmonton affiliate, as it's 2018 Top Appraiser Under 40. 


The Top Appraiser Under 40 Award recognizes exceptional young appraisal professionals – one male and one female – who are making significant accomplishments within the appraisal profession and their community.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce with Distinction from the U of A in 2003, he became an AIC Candidate in 2004, obtained a diploma in Urban Land Economics from UBC in 2011, his AACI designation in 2012, and a Masters of Business Administration from the U of A in 2016.


Simon’s career and volunteer experience is just as impressive as his educational foundation. Simon held positions with Bourgeois & Company Ltd, the City of Edmonton, the Alberta Teacher’s Retirement Board and Bourgeois Chin Associates before becoming Managing Partner (Edmonton) of Bourgeois Brooke Chin Associates and a valuation affiliation of Verra Group.


On the volunteer front, Simon has been equally busy; he has volunteered with the AIC-Alberta Edmonton Chapter, he is currently President of AIC-Alberta and he serves on its Advocacy, Promotion/Recruitment & Retention and Provincial Conference committees. Nationally, he is involved with the Professional Competency Interview program, the Standards Sub-committee, and has previously served on the Marketing & Communications and National Conference committees.

Serving Western Canada since 1979, Bourgeois Brook Chin Associates provides independent and unbiased appraisal reports on all types of real estate including general commercial, industrial, multi-residential, institutional, and special purpose properties. Valuations functions include mortgage financing, purchase and sale, estate settlement, asset management, dispute resolution, among others.


Through VerraGroup, Bourgeois Brooke Chin Associates is also connected to a team of experts from across Canada who have experience in a wide scope of real estate types. The affiliation with VerraGroup allows BBCA to incorporate national level data and perspective into their assignments.
