Baggenstoss Appraisal 

Antique and Personal Property Appraisal

Megan S., Portland

My dad gave me some items - plates, teacups, and a bone china figure that he got from his dad. He said that I could sell them but it's not super clear how much they go for just by googling. I reached out to a few different places and Brooke was the first to respond. She was very friendly and clear. I was pretty intimidated by the whole antique appraisal inquiry and she made me feel very confident with the value of these items going forward. Thanks Brooke-Baggenstoss!

Brooke helped me sort through generations worth of my neighbor’s collected items to settle her estate. She has great knowledge and instinct for value and markets and is very pleasant to work with. She is trustworthy and maintains great communication throughout the process and found creative ways to hold a safe sale in the middle of the pandemic. I highly recommend her services.

I reached out to Brooke for help in valuing my grandmother's 1927 bedroom set. She was a pleasure to speak with on the phone and quick to get back to me with the much needed information. I highly recommend her and will be using her for more valuations as I search through my mother's estate.
