​​​Comprehensive Appraisal Services

Appraisals West provides independent appraisals of fine art and personal property for corporate, educational, municipal, non-profit organizations, as well as private collectors.  Our researchers and appraisers approach each assignment with care, taking into consideration all aspects of an item and its provenance, the current state of the relevant market, and the protection of the client’s property and privacy. 

Our associates are qualified to appraise fine art, antiques, and other personal property.  Often, more than one area of specific expertise is required.  Appraisals West has associates experienced in many types of personal property, so there is no need to hire a multitude of appraisers.  If it is in the best interest of the client to hire a specialist beyond what we can provide, recommendations and referrals will be made. 

Appraisals West holds a high standard of professionalism and ethical practice.  All our appraisals are written in compliance with the current version of The Appraisal Foundation’s Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the International Society of Appraisers’ Appraisal Report Writing Standard and Code of Ethics, and current IRS guidelines where applicable.
