I'm part of a Corp relocation network and have the information of the top agents in your area, if you are interested in referrals. Along with a recommendation from me, still pick atleast one agent of your choice. You will know after meeting them who you will work best with.

I've had sellers obtain appraisals and there is no way that the house ever sell for the appraised price. When this happens, it just hurts the sale since the amount is stuck in the sellers head and pricing to sell is a battle. Have an agent run a market anaylsis and then sit down with the agent and compare comps used and learn the difference, if any.
If you were considering moving, but didn't think your house would be worth enough to do so, then maybe it is the right time, but look carefully at the appraisal to see if you think that the comparables that were used are really comparables. You know the area and each neighborhood. there may be things that made these homes desirable to buyers, which may not hold true for yours. Then decide if you want to put yourself through the stress of selling. You have to fix the house up, keep it neat and clean, plus clutter free so that you are ready to show at a moment's notice. If you still feel that this is what you want to do, go for it.
If you are also interested in selling your home, email me and I will provide you with a comparative market analysis of like-kind properties that have sold in your neighborhood, and that will paint a better picture as to what your home would sell for in today's market.
