Valuations can be performed either by the traditional hands-on approach and in some cases, also through on-line evaluations.
JLF begins by understanding the situation. Is this an estate or inheritance? Is a trustee, lawyer
or court involved? Is a family or person looking to liquidate collectibles?
Did someone stumble upon something and doesn’t know
if it is valuable?
Once the situation is clearly defined, we research the property (items) to be evaluated.
From there we define the appraiser and the process and enter a formal contractual agreement to provide the service.
JLF can help you get top dollar for your valuable property by helping you find a buyer through the proper sales channels.
An appraisal represents the estimated value of the client's property at a given moment. At the client's request, periodic updates to the appraisal can be performed.
JLF's appraisers will always go to the client's location of choice to perform the appraisal--no exceptions.
Our clients never lose possession or control of the property.
