“Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles repeats the phrase “It’s alright,” conveying a sense of reassurance that better days are on the horizon.

But “Something in the Way” we approach our industry is missing.

We all live in a “Yellow Submarine,” sometimes trapped in a rinse and repeat mindset.

We need “Help!”

Similarly, I think the “Ticket to Ride” is for our valuation space to rebrand itself.

The “Abbey Road” to prosperity is to expand beyond traditional valuation roles.

“With a Little Help from My Friends,” we can chart the future of valuation.

“The Long and Winding Road” to change starts with something different, like watching this video of a guy playing piano on the back of a sailboat.

“Let It Be” that valuation professionals significantly broaden their scope of services, embracing new roles as advisors, technologists and specialists.

Maybe we should “Get Back to Where You Once Belonged” and improve our value propositions by offering a diverse range of services for our clients.

“Hello, Goodbye”: thinking about retiring or doubling down on our art for the next generation?

The Beatles were innovators in the music industry and they worked “Eight Days a Week” on their willingness to try new ideas that set them apart.

We need to push back on the “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” apathy that’s present in our valuation industry.

“We Can Work It Out” with a focus on process and technology.

“All You Need” is a new attitude to change, to move the productivity needle.

Embracing technology to streamline appraisal processes is not “Lucy in the Sky” ideas, but it’s here now.

Collaboration and community are the first steps to “Come Together.”

“Little Darling, It Feels Like Years Since” the real estate valuation industry has been grappling with a lack of direction.

However, just as “A Long, Cold, Lonely Winter” ends, there are emerging signs of change and optimism in the appraisal sector.

“Here Comes the Sun” is more than just a melody of hope; it’s a metaphor for the potential transformation we need in our commercial real estate valuation industry.

As we embrace new ideas, we can look forward to a future filled with “Strawberry Fields” potential.

I’m confident that appraisers “Don’t let me down.”

“Here comes the sun, doo-doo-doo-doo.”

“Here comes the sun.”

“It’s alright.”
