Trusts, Estates & Appraisals

For over two decades our experts have worked with banks, attorneys, trust and estate officers, and family members who have been responsible for the dispersal of estates and collections.

We will provide a thoroughly researched, comprehensive, written valuation whether it is for tax purposes, estate planning or dispersal, gift or charitable giving, or insurance purposes. Our experts provide USPAP-compliant appraisals (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal), for both fine and decorative arts, jewelry, and household contents for the purposes of insurance, estate tax, charitable donation, equitable distribution, liquidation, purchase, and sale. Our fees are competitive and follow industry standards.
