And our lead appraiser is a “Qualified Appraiser” as defined by the Pension Protection Act of 2006. to make appraisals for Federal Tax purposes.

We can help with the evaluation of an entire estate, or a few specific items. Our staff is capable of appraising the entire contents of the estate whatever it contains. Art, furnishings, vehicles, firearms, special collections, and general household content are just a few of the items we research and document regularly.

We can provide guidance on donation or liquidation of assets. Many people just want to know they are not mistaking a valuable item for trash. We offer peace of mind to those looking to hold their own estate sale and we are qualified to write donation appraisals for the IRS.
