We are appraisers of personal property specializing in antiques, collectibles, decorative arts and household items. We are not dealers or auctioneers. Appraising is our only business, ensuring you professional objectivity and confidentiality without conflict of interest. We have the experience, staff and resources to give you personalized service and a timely, comprehensive and well-documented report.

Founded more than 25 years ago, Nancy Alison Martin & Associates is recognized as an unsurpassed resource for those in need of personal property appraisal services. The firm is known for professionalism, integrity, grasp of valuation issues and well-substantiated work products.

In accordance with professional ethics, our fees are based upon time and expenses, never on the value of the items appraised. Our documents are prepared according to the federally mandated Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), as well as the IRS requirements for Qualified Appraisals and Qualified Appraisers (see: IRS Notice 2006-96).
