"I unfortunately experienced exactly the same thing as the other bad reviews on this company. My concern in particular, is that a large portion of their customer" base if estate related. He is verbally abusive and I would hate for someone who just lost a family member to be spoken to look he did me. I took a few pieces to him and he was about the rudest person I have experienced in my life. I showed him the pieces and he immediately stated that they were worthless and there was nothing I had brought in that he would be interested in. I told him I didnt even know if I would sell anything to him yet!When i iniitally called him he told me that he had been in the business for many years and that I could make an appointment to come in and he would be happy to educate me on the business. So I decided to go in, around 530pm. (They close at 6pm apparently) He seemed to be rushing me and just kept telling me that the things I had were worthless. I had other items, I didnt bring in that I wanted to show him. And he said if they looked like the items I had shown him, then to not bother. Maybe he is only friendly to you if you bring in items that he is interested in.

"The provider took all the materials for sale and either auctioned them or took them to local providers to sell. She then brought me back about 12,000 after all was" said and done. This is after her 30% . She does have a minimum but I don't remember what the minimum payout was at this time. She is very knowledgeable and professional.

has all of the state of the art appraisal equipment. He analyzes the pieces while you watch, the jewelry is never out of your site, compared to some companies that want to send your piece out to an appraiser. If the piece is an older piece he will even tell you the history of the type of jewelry- so you learn about it as well. He photographs it with a high end camera and photographs it next to a ruler so the photo and the size of the item are side by side. He provides a very detailed description. Because I have seen a number of appraisals from all types of places, I can attest to the fact that the quality and thoroughness of
Philadelphia Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
's appraisals far exceed what you are provided even from an established jewelry store. He takes pride in his work and it shows. He may not finish the full appraisal while you are there because of the price of some precious metals fluctuate he utilizes his industry resources to compile the most accurate pricing. He will email you the finished full color appraisal in a non-editable format . Being cognizant of theft he does not include the owners address on the document, only their name. He has a special program to have your jewelry reappraised in the future as values increase/decrease. He loves what he does and it shows in his interest. He is professional, smart and knowledgeable about his field. There may be times that a client is disappointed in the value of their item and challenge him but he can back up his appraisal with a reasonable and clear explanation. I think all of us know that buying jewelry in a jewelry store or a foreign country leaves room for markup.

is accountable to the client, not the jewelry seller so I am confident that he provides the accurate assessment , even if sometimes that may be a disappointment to the client . He handles those kinds of disappointments with class and grace . I believe there have been times that he has discovered that a trusted jeweler has been less than forthright . HIs appraisals will arm the client with credible ammunition if they were treated improperly by their seller.

is very client centered in his approach and if a client has 10 or more pieces , he will appraise in the privacy and convenience of their home. If a client has one or two pieces or less than 10 you can ask his schedule as he regularly visits insurance agents offices- at their invitation- and he can appraise at an agency in your local area. He travels as far as Virginia I have held a number of jewelry appraisal fundraisers, and even adding an additional premium to the appraisal, his rates are far below the rates of local jewelers. One day I called about 5 different jewelers and found they had prices ranging from the lowest of $80 to the highest which was a percentage of the value of the item! Many of them needed to send it out to an appraiser.

is always willing to speak to groups about jewelry and he is very entertaining. I absolutely recommend him even as a second opinion on a piece of new jewelry, certainly to appraise older jewelry and I have also used him to appraise clocks. I have clients that have used him to appraise jewelry and silver. Here is a review I have written about him in the past, and I still stand by every word.

Thanks for the opportunity to write about a great American business. The Deals did an exceptional job and I rate them A+ or 10/10 in all areas of pricing, efficiency, effectiveness and integrity. Being overseas, I called over 20 estate sale companies and after talking with
Philadelphia Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
and
Philadelphia Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
there was no question in my mind they were the folks for the job. They were professional, courteous, creative and during a very delicate time, showed my family great compassion. I had the opportunity to meet the Deals during a trip to Texas and after a few minutes talking with them, I can feel their energy and passion for their work. When I saw all the property that needed to be cleaned, sorted and priced, I was overwhelmed, not to mention being on a tight schedule to sell the house. The Deals never missed a beat and projected calmness and confidence throughout the process. Their crew came in and everything was prepared and ready for sale in record time, it was magic. Their prices are reasonable and they deliver premium service before, during and after the sale. Their integrity is exemplary as a company and as two wonderful people, and they love animals. Although I'm overseas, I have several friends in Texas and when they ask, I recommend

came out to evaluate a large amount of jewelry from the estate of my sisters mother in-law. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. It turned out most of the jewelry was costume or had little value. But
Philadelphia Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
did provide suggestions of where to take the items that had value. We decided it wasn't the best option to sell the items in an estate sale and
Philadelphia Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
didn't charge anything for the 2 hours he spent going thru the jewelry. I would highly recommend

and his team if you are considering an estate sale. It was pretty oblivious that he has high ethical standards and does what is best for his clients.

The staff were very helpful and professional. The repair work was performed effectively and in a timely manner. The owner showed me all the options in the cases, and for one item (an alexandrite pendant) showed numerous options for custom ordering on the computer. I ended up custom ordering a pendant, which arrived and was mounted within two days. My wife loved it.

He was efficient and quite knowledgeable about most of the items in the house. Those things that he did not have direct knowledge of, he quickly found and referenced their value through his access to Internet databases. I would DEFINITELY use him in the future. His services were provided on an hourly basis and he made every effort to complete the appraisal as quickly, professionally and accurately as possible.

We felt the person evaluating was very knowledgeable and careful and took his time with the many

of the collection, the offer seemed generous to us. In all, we found the company professional and frankly, we were unable to find a

in the Twin Cities to evaluate the collection so it seemed almost the only such large company in town. Silver dollars were quite valuable especially from pre-1900 dates. However several single

This shop was recommended to me from a co-worker.
I inherited several pieces of jewelry, some vintage, and needed to know values so they could be insured or sold intelligently. The gentleman had 20 rings and sets appraised, typed up, and my wedding set resized within a week's time. I wish the appraisal form had the photo of the ring next to the description as I had a few sets that were very similar.
