Why an Independent Appraiser?

If you want a professional that is focused on your appraisal needs, then you want to select a qualified and trained independent appraiser – not only trained in gemology but also in valuation methodology.

Think of your independent appraiser as your undistracted specialist.

Here is what the The Appraisal Foundation stated in response to a recent court ruling:

“Consumers are the biggest beneficiaries of this ruling. Personal property assets will be better protected when a qualified and independent appraiser is retained to value one’s personal property assets,” said John Brenan, vice president of appraisal issues at The Appraisal Foundation. “This also means wealth managers and estate attorneys now have a greater fiduciary duty to their clients to fully understand appraiser qualification criteria and appraisal standards when vetting personal property appraisal experts.”
