Understanding value can be so important. Whether you are confronted with an unexpected inventory such as occurs from a death, divorce, or the happy circumstances of a new purchase or recently acquired heirloom, determining value will help you and your loved ones understand and protect your belongings.
Our service begins with your phone call and your requirements and is followed by a consultation to determine the need, level and cost of your appraisal. You will know exactly what our appraisal services will cost...before the work begins ~ No Surprises!
All services are billed by the hour - never for a percentage nor on a contingency basis. Unbiased appraisals that are founded in research, market analysis, and a life-long familiarity in many markets, gives our reports dependability and professionalism. In-depth research supported by digital photography accompanies all our documents...whether for an entire household or just one special item. We follow USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice), strict ethical guidelines, and the superior report writing standards of the International Society of Appraisers to produce quality, reliable reports that are accepted throughout the insurance industry, the IRS and in the courts.
Many times our clients wish to sell the items that we appraise. We are happy to act as consultants or brokers to help you with this process, and we look forward to bringing the sale of your property to a satisfactory conclusion in the proper marketplace. Please be aware that professional appraisers do not have a financial interest in your property while conducting an appraisal--engaging in such conduct is a conflict of interest. Once the appraisal process is completed, however, we are more than happy to assist you.
We are happy to discuss how our services can be tailored to your needs.
