Planning an Estate: Heirs, Conservators and Individuals
Where to start?
We understand the complexities of planning and settling an estate. Determining values, deciding whether (and how) to sell, making equitable divisions among family members, utilizing donation opportunities...these are issues we address with clients everyday. Our staff has over 150 years of combined experience with the appraisal, assessment and disbursement of collections and estates. The addition of a Certified Estate Specialist provides one point of contact – an advocate for you and your beneficiaries and a respected and knowledgeable professional for your legal representatives. We bring unmatched service and integrity to you at a time when objective, clear and honest advice is needed. We take great pride in not only evaluating and liquidating assets, but creating opportunities to distinguish our clients’ collections and passions from the rest.
Need an appraisal?
Often, full, written appraisals are not necessary to the estate settlement process; particularly when items are planned for auction. Garth’s has several, highly qualified consignor representatives, who can offer verbal, pre-auction estimates of value – at no charge. However, when a written appraisal is required for advance estate planning, Garth’s has the ability to respond quickly, with experienced, professional appraisers.
