About James Kemp-Slaughter Appraiser

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

A professional appraiser, James Kemp-Slaughter ASA FRSA makes an itemized inventory describing, measuring, stating the condition and giving the dollar amount for each item for insurance replacement, fair market value for estate division, estate taxes and/or divorce division.

James has been in the appraisal business since 1977 after completing Victorian and Albert Museum's Decorative Arts Course in London. He is available to do appraisals anywhere in Washington State and takes appraisals in Palm Springs during the month of March.

In these days of high values and continually rising prices, it is important that your furniture, pictures, china, glass and silver be properly appraised and recorded.

My minimum fee is $250 for an hour or less and $300 per hour after first hour. This price includes appraising the items, all research time and two typed copies of the appraisal report.
