With over 30 years' experience buying and selling antiques, I have garnered a comprehensive and varied knowledge of antiques and collectibles! Jewelry, china, rugs, furniture, paintings, toys, dolls, advertisements and memorabilia.
I received my Graduate Personal Property Appraiser designation from the National Auctioneers Association in Overland Park, Kansas. I will provide accurate, thorough verbal and written appraisals for a myriad of antiques, metals and paintings.
A personal property oral appraisal report can help you make important decisions regarding downsizing, selling, insuring, donating, distributing or disposing of personal property. As a generalist, I can therefore typically value household goods and complete residential contents. My exceptional market experience in various competing markets coupled with my extensive knowledge of most types of personal property types provide me with a base to identify and value most common and ordinary property types (when appropriate without research). My knowledge and experience often runs deep regarding many rare and unusual objects that may have significant value. Understanding of characteristics that the market sees and tried and true methods, techniques all work together to guide me through the development of credible valuations.
Do you have gold or silver jewelry flatware or coins? They may be worth far more than their metal content value! Gold jewelry in particular may be worth much more as a presentable piece.
If you're contesting an estate or the valuation of property, I am your court-experienced expert witness. I will ensure your item and its value are addressed properly in court.
