Her antique and personal property appraisals help you place a market value on what you have, which makes it easy to determine what your next steps should be-no matter what your situation.  Whether you’re dealing with illness or death, making room for care-giving, liquidating an estate, dividing for divorce, or simply downsizing your household you will need to know the value of your antiques and personal property.

Cost of an Appraisal:
On-Site:  $150 an hour – plus travel
Research and report preparation: $100 an hour

A discreet, impartial third-party consultation to value personal property and expedite the resolution of disputes.  And if the items are visible, pricing can proceed quickly.  Research and report writing require additional time and fees.

  • Divide personal property equally among heirs
  • Price possessions for a sale
  • Distinguish valuable antiques from reproductions
  • Organize charitable donations
  • Restore or repair your most cherished keepsakes
  • Dispose of items that have little value
