As an accredited member of the International Society of Appraisers, we specialize in IRS approved appraisals, which exceed the federal guidelines of a “Qualified Appraiser.” All of our written appraisal reports are prepared in conformity with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as set forth by the Appraisal Foundation and the International Society of Appraisers.

A competent appraiser helps you manage financial risk.  Rather than being just an “educated guess”, the professional appraiser’s value conclusions are based on prescribed methods of evaluation, research and report writing.

“We have used Art Appraisal Resources for over 12 years for our entire art collection Insurance Appraisals. We were extremely satisfied with the knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail Shelley Hall provided. We did a comprehensive inventory and appraisal of our entire collection and every few years Shelley helps us to evaluate which pieces need to be updated and re-appraised. She is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with.”
