In 2006, Art Collection Services (ACS) was originally conceived to assist individuals and institutions in securing and managing their art collections. Now I am proud to announce the addition of personal property appraisal services. The complete package, from start to finish!
As an appraiser, I am a member in good standing with the International Society of Appraisers (ISA), having completed and successfully tested in the ISA Core Course Levels of Appraisal Studies. Detailed appraisals are completed in accordance with the Appraisal Foundation's Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) 2020-2021, for charitable donations, insurance and estate distribution. USPAP is Congress approved and recognized by the International Revenue Service (IRS) as the required standard practice.
As a collection's manager, I provide comprehensive management of material assets. I enact the process of proper documentation, which is critical for insurance, loans, security, and charitable donations. The first step is to compile all documentation of each object in one easy, accessed location, such as a personalized inventory database with high resolution photographs attached to each record. Professional documentation provides peace of mind, that your information is secure and offers proof of ownership in the case of stolen property recovery and insurance claims. The photographs also support clear evidence of the condition of an object for loans or eventual appraisal purposes.
ACS not only offers the complete package, but also individual services tailored to suit the collector and the collection's needs. Whether it is an appraisal report for non-cash charitable donation, insurance, estate or consultation of collection's management, with professional photography or a personalized database, I can help you.
Over that past 20 years, I have handled several notable collections both private and public, including the Museum of International Folk Art. Quite a treasure trove!
If you have any questions, contact me for more information. I can help you with your collection, whether it is small or large.
