We have a very old military document and we needed a new insurance appraisal. I contacted Art of Estates and Brady was extremely helpful. He was able to do the appraisal and provided us with very helpful information about the document. He was also very nice to correspond with and very professional and thorough. We appreciate the work that Brady did for us. We will definitely be repeat customers. Thank you, Brady.

Potential Sale Estimate of Market Value / Onsite Walk-Through Consulting
Castle Rock, Colorado 2019

Denver Colorado – Mr. Dreasher was excellent, and I would highly recommend to anyone needing an art appraisal that includes estimate if what piece would sell for and recommendations of where and how to sell. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Several of pieces had illegible artist signatures but he found them all. I did not need written appraisals to sell or insure. His option of charging by time versus piece was very fair. Thank you for your service.

But none the less, results are always better with experts involved.  Thanks again.  I do have 3 more items that may warrant your expertise.  I will send them through the web site. Great job you did.

I write this review from Indianapolis, Indiana. I recently needed to find someone trustworthy and reliable to tell me the worth of a water color painting that I have for insurance purposes. Through Google I found Art of Estates. I was hesitant because the piece is precious to me. They are impressive! I spoke with a gentleman by the name of Mr. Brady Dreasher. Mr. Dreasher gave me a pool of information that I myself knew nothing about in regard to this watercolor. He was prompt and took the time to explain everything to me. I would contact him again without hesitation!! Thank you, Art of Estates. PA

Our grandparents left our family with a house full of art and antiques and we were at a loss for how to proceed. We made a family decision to call some appraisers to provide clarity on the property. Mr. Dreasher was the only appraiser who answered the phone and was ready to talk about our situation. Upon arrival, he greeted and introduced himself with business cards and addressed how we should go about making the process fast and efficient for everyone, knowing that we were still in grieving mode. He identified items we had questions about and then more noteworthy artworks and antiques for which he was able to provide restoration concerns and estimates of value. In the end, we only needed a few items formally appraised with a report, but having a knowledgeable person who gave us confidence in the appraisal process was just what our family needed at the time. Big Thanks!

Regionalist Oil Painting / Price Consultation
Los Angeles, California & Chicago, Illinois

In the most recent discussions with the gallery in New York City, they indicated that the painting was not available for less than $20,000 notwithstanding the detailed and well substantiated appraisal you made.  While the gallery owner said that they agreed with some of your statements, she disagreed with others (albeit they provided no specific examples).  While we continue to maintain interest in the painting and have passively reserved a place in our home for it, we cannot in good conscience pay four times the appraised price – no matter how much we like it.  Insurers would have a problem with this and I feel strongly that based on your assessment using market examples and prices, that the painting cannot support the price that gallery is presently seeking.  It is over-priced and even though we have shown considerable interest in making negotiations, there is little motivation to sell it at less that 4x market price when compared to “similar” works.

Donation Appraisal to University / IRS 8283
Denver, Colorado 2019

May 2019, Denver Colorado: I had very pleasant and informative interactions with Brady Dreasher concerning family archive appraisals. Our archives are a complicated collection of letters, documents, and photos from 1860 to the 1950s, and it turns out that only a few items have any real monetary value. Brady took the time to look at emailed photographs and talk to me, as well as make recommendations on what to do with them, and most importantly, what not to do. Brady is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and accessible – a real professional. I will be asking him to do an appraisal of other items in the near future – I trust him. Thank you again, Brady, for all your great advice.

Wow, I had no idea that there were other vases like mine in existence, let alone that they were a dime-a-dozen. This will take some time getting used to, especially because of the previous estimate that I got back in ’87. But then I was planning on donating the vase anyway so there is no monetary loss. Thank you so much for your clear and concise descriptions. You are certainly a scholar and, most importantly for me, a gentleman.

I was enthralled by the concept of owning such a piece and perhaps making a respectable profit as well. Fortunately, I sought the appraisal advice of Mr. Dreasher, who did the research on the art piece. His research proved that although the work was in the manner of Frederic Remington, Olaf Carl Wieghorst, or Frank McCarthy, it was nothing more than a copied style and a commercially produced frame. Valued at no more than something in the ” decorative value range”. I greatly appreciated the promptness and accuracy of Mr. Dreasher’s evaluation and definitely recommend his services to anyone in search of an appraiser.

I found Art of Estates through a google search. I had no direction or idea on how to handle a relative’s estate which I am executor of. Brady was very helpful. After viewing pieces of art via emailed pictures he was able to direct me. It gave me the necessary information on how I should proceed.

Lakewood, Colorado 2019

I retained Art of Estates in Denver to conduct an insurance appraisal for a fine art piece. The background information gathered by Mr. Dreasher and Mr. Osorio, in addition to the research on the artist, was very thorough. The appraisal process was professionally conducted, exceeded my expectations and will more than satisfy the insurance company requirements. Shortly after the above art appraisal, I was requested by the executor of a family estate to help find an appraiser who could provide an estate appraisal in a very short period of time. I immediately contacted Mr. Dreasher and he assured me that he could meet the required deadline, which he did. He was very accommodating, rearranged his schedule and provided several “above and beyond” accommodations for his out of state client.

Brady came out to my home and spent a good two hours going over my 4 pieces of artwork. He is very professional and generous with his time and expertise. I had had an appraisal from years ago. He knew the appraiser and recognized the forms I had. He is a hardworking man with a keen knowledge of fine art and the resources to appraise fairly and accurately. I trust him with my treasures. I highly recommend his services for small or large collections.

I had one of those once in a lifetime moment when at a thrift store I found what I thought to be an authentic, original painting. Wanting to be sure, I searched the internet for an art appraiser who would be more interested in helping me find information and value to my piece instead of a sale. Mr. Dreasher called me back right away and we can up with a plan that provided me with many different options of what service I wanted provided. I was pleased with his thorough and detailed information about my piece, and I was also pleased at how timely he was at answering my questions both by phone and by email. If you need someone to provide good, honest appraisal service for an art piece or painting, I highly recommend calling him.

Navigating a parent’s estate is never easy or fun. When my dad (a professional artist) passed away and our attorney suggested an appraisal (of hundreds of pieces), we had a million questions. Brady was amazing and helped tremendously, even suggesting that perhaps we didn’t actually need the appraisals. In the end, we didn’t, but even so, he was more than willing to talk through it, take a look, share his expertise, and help me figure out the best approach. His willingness to help even though we ultimately didn’t need his services showed he’s not just in this to make money. He had our best interests in mind, and we’re grateful.

Estate Appraisal / Equitable Distribution & Probate
Zionsville, Indiana 2018

We were settling our father’s estate and wanted to be sure that cherished family keepsakes were evenly divided according to value. There were twelve items that we wanted appraised. We called The Art of Estates and Brady explained how the online appraisal process worked. He was truly interested in exactly what we wanted to accomplish. He wanted to be sure he did the job we wanted him to do. As it turns out the online evaluation was perfect for us. It was quick and easy and very reasonably priced. The website was easily navigated which was great for me as I am not a tech wizard by any means. Brady was very responsive and communicative along the way. The turnaround time from submitting the information to the final report was a matter of days. It couldn’t have been easier. Brady is a professional and easy to do business with. Highly recommend Art of the Estates.

The owner of Art of Estates and his staff were impeccable. Timely, thorough, professional and went above expectations by finding pieces in our home that we hadn’t even known were valuable, advising us on pieces we didn’t realize needed special attention and even giving us recommendations for professionals to handle those matters. We recommend Art of Estates without reservation.

When I called on Saturday afternoon, Brady himself answered my call and was very helpful in explaining how to get an appraisal on my pair of tables. Using the internet, we were able to conclude his appraisal that same afternoon. He was able to give me listings of similar items and what they had sold for, as well as providing a value range for my items. He also gave several recommendations on the best way to sell them. We’ve already made plans for him to appraise other items in the future. He is terrific!

I contacted Brady for an appraisal on two paintings I had purchased at a yard sale. He was very helpful and professional. Since I wished to resell them, he found three auction houses he felt would work well for me. Brady was spot on in his estimation of their worth. I sold both paintings between the high and low appraisal price. If I ever come upon another great deal again, Brady will be the first call I make. Thanks again

The work was most professionally done regarding an appraisal of a painting I needed for insurance purposes. I was also in a time crunch as I was moving from Indianapolis to Kansas City in pretty short order. Nonetheless, Brady got the required work finished in good time, and I was most pleased with the results. I would heartily recommend this company for anyone needing a professional appraisal.

My sister and I divided up our father’s estate this past year, and we needed appraisals for a large amount of furniture, rugs, silver, etc., that had been handed down through past generations of our family. Brady guided and worked with us throughout this process, taking time to come to our home in Boulder, take extensive photographs, work out the provenance for each item, and finally to determine the historical background, date and region for each piece, market analyzation, and replacement cost for insurance purposes. I learned a lot from this process, and appreciated Brady’s high level of professionalism, expertise and patience throughout. I won’t hesitate to call him again for any upcoming appraisals we may need, and I enthusiastically recommend Art of Estates for any personal property appraisal needs!

Brady was tremendous to work with. I came to him for help in establishing values for a mountain of stuff we inherited from my folks. Nothing “official” per se, just trying to figure out what had something beyond sentimental value. He was honest about which items were worth getting an appraisal for and which we would be better off researching for ourselves (i.e.: no real monetary value). To top it off Brady offered recommendations of where and how to search for those items. For the official appraisals we did get, research was thorough, and results were clearly presented. A great experience in an otherwise difficult time.

Brady Dreasher and his team handled a complex and confidential appraisal in Cherry Hills Village. As a certified IRS estate appraiser, he was able to navigate the legal matters effectively on several fronts when related to the personal property. I feel confident his appraisal firm’s professionalism, expertise, and knowledge of how to value the art and antiques will withstand scrutiny of 3rd parties.

I contacted Art of Estates and Brady responded same day. I was in need of an appraisal for couple of oil paintings for insurance purposes. As it turned out, the paintings had more sentimental value than monetary value and Brady was kind enough to waive the appraisal fees. You rarely find this kind of service in the world today. I highly recommend using Art of Estates for expeditiously expert assistance.
