The field of appraisal is aggressively increasing its standards, practice methods, and code of ethics. The intent is to promote and maintain a high level of public trust in appraisal practice by establishing requirements for professional appraisal.

Personal property appraisers are not licensed and anyone may call her/himself an appraiser regardless of their qualifications. Choosing a professional and qualified appraiser means checking credentials:

- are they accredited by a reputable appraisal organization?

- what experience do they have in property like that to be appraised?

- do they meet IRS ‘qualified appraiser’ requirements?

- are they knowledgeable in the legal, financial, and technical requirements of the appraisal?

- at the very least, have they passed the current USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice)?

Robin's specialty areas are Fine Art and Antique Chinese Furniture. For property outside her specialties, she involves colleagues who have respective expertise. She is pleased to recommend reliable appraisers for projects outside of her and her colleagues fields. Robin encourages Clients to seek appraisers who are members of non-profit appraisal organizations that test and accredit members, who require adherence to strict ethical standards, and who comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, the only Congressionally recognized, accepted, and sanctioned set of appraisal standards promulgated by The Appraisal Foundation.
