The appraisal process begins with a discussion to determine the purpose of the appraisal and the range of objects to be considered. An estimated fee is given based on the hours expected to complete the project. Then an on-site inspection is organized in order to measure, examine and photograph the property.

Each item is thoroughly researched using academic resources, databases of comparable objects recording auction sales, art and antique galleries and market specialists.

The client receives a written appraisal report that includes a full description and photograph of each object, the appropriate valuation approach and a value conclusion together with the appraisers certification and credentials, presented in a professional looking bound format.

All reports are delivered in a timely manner to ensure all deadlines are met. All our appraisal reports meet IRS and Insurance Industry standards, and as independent appraisers we are unbiased and impartial, with no interest in the value of your property.
