Unlike other appraisers, Dr. Lori has a Ph.D. in art history, decades of appraisal experience, and DOES NOT have an interest in buying your items which ensures that you get an honest, ethical, and accurate appraisal.
Many appraisers don't want you to know the true value of an item since they are interested in buying the item from you at a much lower price than its actual value. Under the guise of an appraiser, these people will buy your item cheaply and resell it for their own financial gain making you believe it's not valuable. Good business for them, but not for you, who has no idea what your item is worth.
If you are interested in selling your items, we suggest that you receive an appraisal from Dr. Lori. Never use an appraiser who was referred to you by a prospective buyer or seller. Once you have an independent appraisal from Dr. Lori, you then have the necessary information you need to protect yourself and properly negotiate when you are selling the item.
