About

I have been involved in the art and antiques field since 1985. I’ve always had an interest in the arts and kept involved by attending art auctions and sales in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. It was a natural progression to become a Certified Personal Property Appraiser because of my passion for research and discovery. It has been very fulfilling to help people discover the value of their treasures they live with or have recently acquired. Having the current value of these items helps families make informed decisions when it comes time to distribute belongings. My experience in preparing for an Estate Sale is unmatched. Not only does my team organize and prepare your family treasures for the sale, but with my appraisal experience you are rest assured that the maximum value will be obtained for you and the estate.
