Art Appraisals

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.

As an Accredited Member of the International Society of Appraisers with a Fine Arts Specialization and  over 20 years of professional experience in the arts business, and a degree in Fine Art, Shelley Hall exceeds the IRS requirements for a “Qualified Appraiser” in all federal tax appraisals.  We are USPAP certified and all of our formal written appraisals conform to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as set forth by the Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation of America.
