Williamson County Assessor of Property Brad Coleman was presented the 2019 Three Star Certification before the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers at the fall regional seminars.
The certificate was presented on behalf of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers by Executive Director Will Denami.
“The Three Star Certification is a professional standard of operations recognized by the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers,” he said. “The certification represents an operational analysis for compliance in the numerous standards monitored by the division of property assessments, as well as a demonstrated commitment to continuing education. Brad Coleman’s leadership and experience are foundational in his approach to mass appraisal.”
The Three Star Certification is an annual certification process where each office of the assessor of property is independently reviewed for technical compliance by the comptroller’s division of property assessments. Each office must successfully complete the monitoring process and complete the necessary continuing education requirements for the assessor of property. Once the standards are met, the assessor of property submits application to the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers for verification.
“We have a strong team in the Williamson County Assessor’s office, and I am very fortunate to have each and every single member of our team,” Coleman said. “We have a dynamic landscape, and it takes an extra effort to maintain current practices with the constantly changing field. Personally, I am humbled to be able to serve as the assessor of property, and I am committed to making sure all Williamson County taxpayers are treated fairly and equitably.”

The TNAAO's purpose is to work on behalf of the people of our great state to ensure fairness and uniformity in statutes regarding the assessment of property, as well as to promote excellence through best practices and professionalism amongst those charged with this vital task.
