Online Appraisals Amidst COVID-19

A quick update from New York Fine Art Appraisers.

We remain open and available to service all current and potential clients. While all non-essential onsite visits are being rescheduled, our team of appraisers and support staff will be working remotely. We are available to discuss your appraisal needs via telephone, email, skype, fax and pigeon carrier if need be.

Our fully USPAP-compliant online appraisals provide professional valuation services nationwide and are, in most instances, accepted for formal purposes by the IRS, insurance companies, banks and lenders, sale venues and government agencies.

We will shortly be adding how-to and informational videos to assist you in providing us the details needed to accurately appraise your fine and decorative art. We will also be scheduling virtual consultations for larger collections and estate situations.

Through the strength of community and creativity, we will all get through this!!

Stay safe and healthy,
