I am a fully Certified Appraiser specializing in photography with the Appraisers Association of America. “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. Our members are USPAP compliant and known for the highest standards of ethics, conduct and professionalism.
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. In addition, each member is required to earn Continuing Education credits and to keep their USPAP certificate up to date.”
All of my appraisal reports follow the rules set down by the IRS, and adhere to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) guidelines as established and revised by the Appraisal Foundation in Washington, D.C.
“The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) is the generally recognized ethical and performance standards for the appraisal profession in the United States. USPAP was adopted by Congress in 1989, and contains standards for all types of appraisal services, including real estate, personal property, business and mass appraisal. USPAP is updated every two years so that appraisers have the information they need to deliver unbiased and thoughtful opinions of value.”
Confidentiality is paramount. Only written permission, directly from the client, naming specific entities with whom to share information, (such as accountants or museum registrars or insurers) will allow me to share information.
