Dear Mr. Nicol,
I have been seeking a new company who is in need of a Real Estate Appraiser and noticed your listing in the San Diego Union Tribune. The real estate market has dried up so much in my area that I was very pleased to see this vacancy. My resume is attached to this letter and you will find that I have all of the qualifications that you listed as necessary to fill this opening.
My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and have completed and passed my exams for the real estate appraiser and am fully licensed. I understand the real estate laws and have worked as an appraiser for over ten years and have kept all my licensing up to date. My verbal and written communication skills are superb and I can effectively communicate the reasons for any appraisal.
With the real estate market as it is right now, it is important for appraisers to work even harder to make sure properties are given the correct value. For this reason, I know that I would make a vital member of the team at your company. I am looking forward to meeting with you in order to talk about how I can benefit your company. You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555.
