I have 35 years of experience in appraisals and advice for personal property.
Estate - Insurance - Sale - Distribution - Inventory
I began doing appraisals and conducting auctions in the mid-1970's at Hanzel Galleries in Chicago and joined forces with Butterfield, now part of the international auction house Bonham's, in the late 1990's. Now an independent appraiser, in addition to providing appraisals and advice about personal property fine art, furniture, silver, porcelain, books and other collections, I am also involved in benefit auctions and other charitable work.
My fee is based on the complexity of the situation and from my experience and skills, I am recognized as both efficient and accurate. The normal rate is $150 - $300 per hour. Large and custom projects are negotiable.
All inspections and appraisals are confidential.
