I am a personal property appraiser. I am accredited in antiques and decorative arts by the American Society of Appraisers. I am experienced in insurance, estate and donation appraisals. I also arrange sales of antiques and household goods through my contacts in the auction community.
I enjoy helping my clients solve their appraisal problems, especially when I can enlighten them about the history of their property, whether it is an old sword from the civil war, or a sampler stitched by an ancestor. Personal property is history on a small scale. I've appraised life-size Homer Simpson animation figures, furniture, silver, ceramics, swords, antique guns, lighting, and many other items in between.
If I can't help you, I'll tell you upfront, because I provide value for my fees. Potential clients tell me they appreciate my honesty.
