We hand select our appraisers from The Appraisers Association of America , to ensure we have a deep bench of qualified appraisers to offer the highest value for your asset.
The Appraisers Association of America is an international organization based in New York City with members in cities across the country as well as in Canada, Europe and Asia. In a field with no degree and no license, membership in the Appraisers Association of America is one of the most important credentials to look for in a personal property appraiser. Their members are USPAP compliant and known for the highest standards of ethics, conduct and professionalism. Professional members of the Association are in one of four categories: Certified Member, Life Certified Member, Accredited Member, and Life Accredited Member. Certified is the highest level of membership and a Certified Member always has a designation of AAA after his/her name indicating that they have particular expertise in a specified area. We always strive to use a ‘Certified’ appraiser for all transactions.
The best qualified and trained appraiser for your asset
Taking this approach allows us to always find the best qualified and trained appraiser for your asset. ‘In house’ appraisers are employed by the company and we therefore don’t think they’re in a position for your best interests.
Items are appraised with the highest qualified certified appraisers for each type of luxury item. If requested we can come to you with the appraiser and collect your asset via the most secured means available for that specific asset type.
Based on the appraisal and type of item, (some assets have a higher depreciation ratio to others, which will effect the LTV) we fix terms of the loan in a formal binding and state regulated contract, send you your monies and secure your asset in a climate-controlled vault.
