Are you seeking an appraiser with vast knowledge of antiques, fine art, and residential contents?  

Located in the Metro Atlanta area, I travel to your location.   As a CAPP(Certified Appraiser of Personal Property),  I committed to completion of the highest level of certification available to professional appraisers. This means you are guaranteed a professional with deep knowledge of both subject matter and methodology.  My expertise as a generalist qualifies me to assess a wide variety of items.  Thirteen+ years of experience in the local, regional and national markets allows me to provide a variety of client-tailored solutions. Having grown up in the field, literally digging antique bottles out of a historical dump site in Savannah, GA, with my mother, it is safe to say that antiques are in my blood!    

Wondering where to begin when faced with a decision regarding personal property assets?    

Pick up your phone and dial 770-757-1479. During this complimentary consultation we can discuss the steps, various solutions and an estimate of costs. You will then be able to make an educated decision that is right for you and your particular situation.

Recently, I appraised the Wilson Pickett Jr. Legacy Foundation Memorabilia Collection, brokered both a fine art and a nautical collection, and delivered a verbal assessment of a large, varied estate providing the client with guidance in multiple types of disbursement.

Simple or small to large and complex, all assignments are given the same attention to detail.


Now serving the Metro DC area. 

What are some of the most unusual items you have appraised ?  A disassembled pole barn being donated to a equine therapy group, a historical collegiate game football from early 20th c., a historical bourbon collection, a stained glass window from a WWII bombed out English church, a spinning wheel belonging to the Girl Scout Founder, and an early Frank Lloyd Wright chair.  One of the most important steps in approaching an appraisal assignment is defining the action plan - "scope of work" and I excel in thinking outside of the box and solving the appraisal "problem."
