Quality Art Appraisal Matters
Finding a qualified, independent, and ethical appraiser is important. The expertise, knowledge, and experience of an art appraiser you hire weigh heavily on the quality of valuation. We are academics by training, Accredited Senior Appraiser of Asian art designated by American Society of Appraisers.

No appraisal is universal. An appraisal report is required to meet a specific appraisal need. It usually serves two goals: 1) provide you or the interested party with the information needed to understand and appreciate the art object in question; 2) help you posses crucial information and achieve your goals. Either for sale, insurance coverage or claim, or make a charitable donation or file estate tax, you need to meet the industry requirements or follow the IRS rules for a "qualified" appraisal by a "qualified" appraiser.
We prepare each appraisal report with expertise, due diligence and care. Our appraisal report is informative and educational. We not only include useful information on your art work but also potential issues. A properly done appraisal report should educate you about your property and guide you to a direct approach to your goals. For sale, our up-to-date market analysis would help negotiate a fair price with the buyer from a position of strength.
