I offer both remote and in-person appraisal services to meet the individual needs of clients during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. All safety requirements are followed during in-person site visits. Please be assured that current Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) guidelines permit the remote development of Appraisal Reports using digital photographs and client-assisted video conferencing or FaceTime inspections in lieu of first-hand inspections, if preferred. Please contact me directly to discuss how to move forward with your individual appraisal needs. 

Schlegel Fine Art Consulting, LLC specializes in fine art and personal property appraisals for charitable donations, insurance and estate valuations, and equitable distributions and divorce settlements.
