The Appraisal Process

Formal written appraisals involve an in person visit for examination and photography followed by office procedures including item identification, market comparable research, and report production. My normal value formula is approximately two hours of office time for every hour of inspection. This takes guesswork out of estimating costs for clients.
As an accredited appraiser that adheres to a strict code of ethics I can be compensated in one of only two ways – a fee per item or per hour of service. I charge per hour of service with a one hour minimum. Points outside the Portland, Oregon area may require travel time at the same rate. I am happy to perform appraisals remotely from photos as well.

Please give a call at (
503) 358-2235 or drop me an email to discuss your appraisal needs.
