Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

Yes, I recommend Philip Weiss, here is a link to their site for you: http://www.weissauctions.com/Contact-Us.aspx

Weiss is an auction business and they will send a representative on location to look over the estate at no charge.

If you are seeking an appraisal for estate tax or donation purposes, you will want to work with an appraiser who is a member of an accredited appraiser group. Their fees start at around $150/hour.

To find one in your area, you will go to each of the 3 sites and enter your location into their 'find an appraiser' directories. From there, you will contact each qualified appraiser who fcomes up in your area and they will relay to you their fees for service.

Here are the links for you to each of the groups:

ISA, International Society of Appraisers: https://www.isa-appraisers.org/find-an-appraiser

ASA, American Society of Appraisers: http://www.appraisers.org/find-an-appraiser

AAA, Appraiser's Association of American: http://www.appraisersassociation.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.ViewPage&PageID=741
