Comprehensive & Compliant

Written personal property appraisals may be needed for a variety of purposes:

  • Insuring objects of value.

  • For federal tax function obligations (including estate settlement and donation valuation).

  • Calculating market value before offering an item for sale. 

Aves Appraisal can help. We will produce an appraisal that is compliant with the Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) guidelines:  professional, accurate, impartial and timely. 




Quick, Cost Effective Testing

Are you looking to get a broad idea of what a collection or the contents of an estate are worth? 

Do you need a rough idea of value but not for legal or tax purposes?

Our valuation services are a good start. They are not the same as a formal appraisal and hence require less formal documentation. Often this is an introductory step to determining if any more work, such as a formal appraisal is warranted. Typically this is a very cost effective way of deciding how to proceed.



Custom Solutions for Sale, Donation, Documentation & More

We can help at all levels of need, including collection documentation and moving assistance; from facilitating the donation or sale of a few items to an entire estate.

Edward and has worked across levels of trade, ranging from fine art and antiques sales and procurement for discerning collectors to retail sale including the estate sales and thrift business.

Edward has the experience to help you determine the best course of action. Unlike other companies, we work with you to craft a solution that fits your needs, not to sell you a predetermined product. Every project is different so please contact us for a free consultation.

Business Consultation for Non-Profits, Antique & Collectible Resale and Estate Sales Professionals

Edward has a wide range of experience, from helping launch small non-profit thrift store shops (and subsequently turning them into substantive multi-location revenue streams) to facilitating the liquidation of premier estates.

With his experience and training in social enterprise management, Edward can help you decide where to go with your business, evaluate next steps, identify areas for growth, areas of improvement as well as how to increase revenue with existing operations.

As an outsider, Edward is not subject to biases that your organization members and employees may have, is not subject to sunk cost fallacies and will provide a critical and discerning analysis of your business.
