Customer Question
My name is*****...

My name is***** I own a 8000 sq.ft. B&B. I am closing business and retiring. I have several valuable antiques that I would appreciate having an appraisal done. Is this something you can help me with? website is lakemanorwv/com phone is(###) ###-####

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I would like a phone call but not for a charge of $34.00. How long do you think it should take for you to send a type written response to my question?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 3 months ago

This is a situation that would really warrant a phone call.

I will not spend any more money until I have some sort of written communication from you so I know that your service is legitimate. After all I have just given you my credit card information to a stranger.

Hello Nora, I do not care if you are an employee or not I just would like some helpful information or communication of some kind in writing so we can begin a dialogue.
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 3 months ago

Hello,

Ok.

Your original query is that you are seeking an appraisal of the contents of the 8000sf B&B.

It will be helpful to understand the purpose for your needing an appraisal, especially of this magnitude.

Would this be for the purposes of selling the contents? Knowing the value for insurance? Donation or to record it for estate inheritance. These various needs, each warrant a different type of appraisal.

If we can begin the dialogue by you expounding on the scope of work you are seeking, this would be the best start.

Hi Nora, I am closing my business and would like to send pictures of just three valuable items to you for an appraisal that your company advertises that you can provide. Just an estimate of value for a sale to a potential customer would be requested. Can you provide this service?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 3 months ago

Hello,

Thank you for clarifying, as your original query seemed to imply needing a valuation on the contents of the estate

Yes, I can provide an assessment for each individual item.

We will need to start with just one on this question thread.
