I am a professional appraiser of personal property such as antiques, fine art, silver, jewelry, household goods, and the like.
Additionally, I provide services useful in the handling of estates and trusts, such as disposition, cleanup, disposal, repair, equitable division and distribution, shipping, packing, and negotiating with suppliers and providers.
Personal property appraisals:
My appraisals are professionally prepared, with accompanying photographs, always written in comprehensible terminology, and in conformance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. My appraisals are almost always finished within seven to ten days after I first see the property. I charge a reasonable hourly fee, never contingent on the value of the property.
Rush appraisals are usually possible, for an extra fee.
I do appraisals for estates and trusts, insurance, divorce settlement, and property damage claims. I have 35 years of experience in appraising varying types of personal property, with appraisals and property disposition being my sole source of income for the last twenty-five years. I have many years of experience in the numismatic and philatelic field, having once owned my own retail store. I have also been the primary evaluator of pledged property at a pawn shop.
In the case where specialized expertise is required, I have a network of specialists to appraise those items, including a good working relationships with the major auction houses and their specialty departments.
My principle clients include US Bank Trust Department, Allen Trust Company, West Coast Trust, Bank of the West Trust Department, Pioneer Trust, and numerous attorneys and trust departments in the Portland, Salem, and Vancouver area.
Much of my business is the the Portland area, but I do a fair amount of work in Salem and on the coast, and have worked as far north as Bellingham, as far south as Palm Desert, and as far east as Baker City.

I use a multitude of disposition methods, depending on the needs and wants of your clients. All sales are performed on a reasonable pre-negotiated percentage basis, normally 25%-35%, but possibly varying with the nature of the sale and the items sold. I offer a full accounting of sales, commissions, and expenses once items are sold, and have complete clean-up and disposal services available.
I do not buy anything from any of my sales, thus eliminating any conflict of interest concerns you might have.
Essentially all of my business is due to referrals from pleased customers, and I have had the privilege of handling over $3000000 worth of property on behalf of my clients in the last five years.
