Appraisals for Donations
We are an independent, full-service personal property appraisal firm. 
Appraisals, regardless of the need, must be prepared by a qualified appraiser. The IRS will only accept donation appraisals prepared by a qualified appraiser as defined in IRS publication 561: “an individual who has earned an appraisal designation from a recognized professional appraiser organization for demonstrated competency in valuing the type of property being appraised.”

Appraising is our only business. We are recognized and credentialed in our areas of expertise. We do not buy, we do not sell, we do not carry inventory. Confidentiality and professional objectivity with no conflict of interest are assured. We protect our clients’ privacy. Appraisal reports exceed the requirements of estate planners and attorneys, banks, and insurance companies. We are experienced, highly market-aware, and extremely discreet.
