Through the Certified Appraisers Guild of America (CAGA), Paint & Patina’s Proprietor, Amber Berkbuegler, is a certified appraiser and a member in good standing. The asset property is personally evaluated and all reports are prepared in accordance with the Standards and Practices of the CAGA. We produce detailed valuation reports for personal property and estate needs (including probate, divorce, insurance, and bankruptcy), gifting, and tangible assets for small business.
Appraisal and inventory report fees are based on an hourly rate with a two hour minimum. A personal, on-site consultation is recommended for an accurate estimate of your project. There is no fee for this visit.
For estates with large quantities of tangible assets, those with distinctive items and those that are planning ahead, an asset inventory report is crucial in the event of theft, fire or other loss as defined by your insurance policy. Our detailed report includes descriptions, photos and videos. This information may be filed with your insurance broker and serves to prove ownership, condition and may expedite replacement in the event of a loss.
I am very impressed with Paint & Patina's professionalism. The [appraisal] report is very detailed and thorough. Thank you for doing such a fine job." -Suzanne, Ladue, MO
