More About Us and What We Do
At AA Fine Art, we are passionate about our clients and about what we do. We are eager to learn more about you and your art collection. Until we do, here are a few key things you may want to know about us.
Learn More About Our Certification
Above, we talk about being certified with the Appraisers Association of America (AAA). What does that mean?
To receive a certification from the AAA, our appraisers must undergo a minimum of 120 hours of art valuation education. Those 120 hours include a mandatory 15-hour program from the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Years ago, the appraisal profession was flooded with newcomers. The USPAP was formed to ensure that appraisers conduct business as ethically, uniformly, and as accurately as possible. Ethical, accurate appraisals are important for taxes, tax documents, estate planning, insurance and more. These standards protect us, but more importantly, they protect you!
Our certification with the AAA is a promise to you — a promise that we will operate under the highest possible standards, every appraisal, every time. AA Fine Art is committed to going above and beyond and more than fits the bill for certified fine and decorative art appraisers near me.
Preserve Your Family History
While appraisals and fine and decorative art valuation may be required as part of tax filings and other legal documents, we understand that — at the end of the day — valuing your art is about so much more.
As the art appraisers trusted globally, we realize that appraising your art, antiques and collectibles is about family. We work with you to help preserve your family history. In addition to appraisal, we are more than happy to review the best practices for preserving your valuable articles.
For example, how to control exposure to natural elements such as humidity, temperature and light. How to move valuable items from one location to the other without damaging them. We have trusted partners that we will refer you to, as part of our customer service at no charge.
Our appraisal includes an attribution of the item, detailed auction house catalogue description, current fair market value and/or insurance value.
