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 every day.  Our representatives have over 150 years of combined experience with the appraisal, assessment, and disbursement of collections and estates.  We can provide 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 also 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 to be disbursed or sold.  Garth’s has several, highly qualified representatives, who can offer verbal estimates of value – at no charge.  However, when a written appraisal is required for advanced estate planning, Garth’s has the ability to respond quickly, with experienced, professional appraisers.
