Certified appraiser Gloria Gales offers over twenty-five years of experience identifying, valuing and brokering fine art and decorative art from around the world.

Whether you wish to insure or sell a single piece of art, or an entire art collection, Gloria Gales can assist with professional research and knowledge.

Your appraisal will be researched, written and prepared in accordance with Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.

The most important criteria is the appraiser's experience and thoroughness in writing the report. Is your appraiser doing all of the research and report writing, or are less experienced personnel involved?

Gloria Gales inspects the art herself, measures the art, photographs the art, and takes notes. The appraisal report will be as complete as possible, it will be concise and not misleading. It will be written professionally and not in such a way that would make it difficult to understand. Gloria is always available to discuss the appraisals with her clients, either on the telephone or via email.
