We Offer USPAP Compliant Appraisals
The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) is the certification for ethical and performance standards for professional appraisal services within the United States. USPAP was set in place by Congress in 1989 and oversees the standards for a wide variety of appraisal services including personal property, real estate, business and mass appraisals. USPAP is updated every 24 months to allow appraisers to have the information and knowledge required to deliver an opinion regarding the current value of an item in as unbiased a manner as possible.

Onsite Appraisal Service
Our comprehensive onsite appraisal service is available for both private and corporate clients. We specialize in onsite appraisals for trust companies, attorneys, insurance companies and individuals. Our on-site appraisals are particularly useful for the contents of a home that need to be appraised for insurance. We also appraise items including the purchase and disposal of estates or personal property from houses. We offer both on-site formal USPAP compliant appraisals and valuation services. Brigitte holds exciting “What’s it Worth” events at nursery homes, assisted living facilities and parties that are similar to the Antiques Roadshow television show. Brigitte can offer an on-site valuation that tell you what your item is worth!
Online Valuation Service
There are many different occasions where you may find yourself listed as the beneficiary of an estate or you may find that you have inherited an estate in its entirety. This can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you have no idea how much the estate items are worth. Our online valuation service is designed to appraise items online from information and photographs you provide. It is not uncommon for us to be able to refer legitimate buyers for particular contents, based upon the items available and the determined value. This service is an excellent way for our clients to learn all the necessary information about the items within the estate while staying within necessary budget restraints. For a higher quality determination, Brigitte also offers formal USPAP complaint appraisals online.
Estate Appraisals: Estate appraisals are often required by banks or trust companies following the death of a loved one. Appraising the value of art, jewelry, collectibles and other household items is one of the most typical aspects of an estate appraisal.
Legal Appraisals: Legal appraisals are most often used to settle disputes over property, for example during divorce proceedings. The valuation of items includes general household items as well as antiques and other collectible items.
Insurance Appraisals: Insurance appraisals are used in situations where a client may want to ascertain the value of an item that has been damaged and a claim filed.
