What size jobs does Esquire Appraisals handle?

The size of an appraisal may vary from one item to major collections of private collectors and large institutions. Appraisals include ordinary household contents to fine private collections.

Appraisals are done in a very timely manner and are generally completed within two weeks of the date of the appraisal. They are fully computerized. Clients receive an original and two copies of the finished appraisal.
