We provide assistance to clients across the southeast, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia. 

 Appraisal & Valuation Services

Arcadia Art Consultancy provides formal appraisal reports for personal and corporate collectors across the United States. Our reports conform to the 2018-2019 Uniform Standards of the Personal Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the International Society of Appraisers’ Code of Ethics and Report Writing Standards, as well as all relevant IRS and state tax requirements. 

Upon the completion of the appraisal report, an electronic copy of the report will be sent to the client. When requested, the client may also receive a complimentary bound copy of their appraisal report.

Appraisal reports may be written for single items, or entire collections.

Visual Inventories

Visual Inventories provide clients with an accurate inventory of your collection. Inventory reports are advisable for clients wishing to understand more about what they own, without needing to understand the value.

Walk-Through Assessments

Unsure as to the value of your collection? Arcadia Art Consultancy provides clients with preliminary walk-through services either independently or as a compliment to our appraisal services. We’ll help you identify items of potential value within your home, so that you may take appropriate action with regards to their care and/or disposal.
