We work as an organized team to see that our clients receive the personal attention and detail they deserve. Our Appraisal Team performs evaluations on a daily basis and our specialists are trained to give accurate assessments on virtually anything.

Some of our more frequent appraisal requests include:

  • Antiques
  • Collectibles
  • Family Heirlooms
  • Furnishings
  • Artwork
  • Vehicles

Appraisals determine the value of personal property for different purposes: estate resolution, insurance assessments, donation or gift valuation, property liquidation, fair market value estimation, and replacement cost. In many of these instances, certified appraisal reports are recommended and/or requested by an attorney.

Our appraisal service includes the following:

  • We will set an appointment for an appraiser to meet with you at your convenience.
  • The appraisal will be charged at an hourly rate. Great care is taken to complete the appraisal within a reasonable and efficient time frame.
  • At the conclusion of the evaluation, we will compile the appraiser’s notations and catalog the information into our appraisal database.
  • The report will be printed, reviewed and certified with the appraiser’s signature. It will include a description and opinion of value for your property.
  • You, or a recipient designated by you, will receive a bound copy of your certified written report by mail in a timely manner. We will also include two additional copies to be given to your attorney, your insurance company, your accountant or anyone else of your choosing.
