About

I am the owner and operator of Neale and Sons Inc. Appraisers and Auctioneers in Saratoga, CA. Neale and Sons is a family business started by my great grandfather and grandfather in 1947. Ever since I was a little boy I have been working flea markets and auctions buying and selling antiques and fine arts. I worked my first auction at the age of 9 in 1989 and started selling on eBay in the 90's. In high school and college I spent most weekends selling at local flea markets or working auctions. During my freshman year in college I started to appraise professionally for Neale and Sons Inc. When I graduated from Whitworth University I took up the family tradition and joined Neale and Sons Inc. full time. Since then I have expanded my professional expertise through continuing education from; The International Society of Appraisers, The American Society of Appraisers, The Gemological Institute of America and The California Society of Auctioneers. I have completed over 1,000 appraisals and have appeared as an expert witness in numerous court proceedings.I really love what I do and have a passion for history through personal property and art.
