An Art of Estates appraiser is adept at utilizing modern technology and experienced-based expertise to save our clients time and money without sacrificing quality or USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) compliance. Art of Estates never takes property into our possession, and we do NOT buy or sell personal property. This appraisal approach ensures that our appraisal results are ethical, and unbiased, and remain objective throughout the entire appraisal process. These service features of Art of Estates are what sets us apart from our competition. No side deals, no private dealer brokering, and no side flipping. Just straightforward and honest appraisal services.

The confidential and formal appraisal reports Art of Estates develops are USPAP (governed by the United States Congress) compliant, signed, and certified by an accredited appraiser. The appraisals are submitted to the Internal Revenue Service, Judicial Courts, Government Agencies, Corporations, Attorneys, Museums, Insurance Agents, Lawyers, and private collectors often on behalf of their clients, families, and individuals making financial decisions. The personal property appraisal reports are customized to the individual needs of our client and reviewing party. While all our litigation-related appraisals are developed with the intention of both sides understanding through adequate explanation without bias and overt transparency, expert witness depositions and testimony are available.
