The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) was established by the Texas Legislature in 1991 to license, certify, and regulate real estate appraisers in Texas under state and federal laws. TALCB exists to safeguard the public interest and protect consumers from such independent real estate services. Through education, licensing, and regulation, the agency ensures the availability of qualified and ethical service providers, thereby facilitating economic growth and opportunity in Texas.
