Appraisals & Management of Personal Property

“You not only need appraisals you need to keep them up to date every three years. Our firm does this routinely for a small fee.”

The Appraisal Process


Contact Us


Send us information on the valuables you wish to be appraised, along with images. The more information the better!

We will provide an estimate for services on the basis of a preliminary consultation.

We charge at hourly rates to guarantee a complete objective service.


The Examination


An appraisal entails an on-site examination of objects in order to determine the maker or manufacturer, country of origin, date, size, distinctive or rare characteristics and markings, and current condition. Photographs, measurements, and documentation will be taken at the viewing.

Preparation of objects for viewing and access to background material can considerably reduce the appraiser’s time.

An online appraisal is possible with the appropiate documentation and provenance.


The Report


After our research of your property, you will receive a USPAP compliant report (hardcopy or digital.)

This will contain a list of your items, each with an image, description, location, value, and reference number.

This report can then be easily updated periodically by us at a reasonable rate.
