We are very happy with the way things went with
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
. You really couldn't ask for a more competent, down-to-earth, friendly, and helpful appraiser/auctioneer. Everything that has already been written on angie's list is so true. We are so glad we found him. He told us so much about the items we have held onto, and didn't charge for it. He just purchased several items at a very reasonable price. We made a nice profit!

I called several jewelers to find out the cost of having an appraisal of my ring done. Every place I contacted was at least $100 or more, and you needed to have an appointment. In addition, they would have to keep the ring for a few days. I called
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
and spoke with the Owner/ Gemologist. He said I did not need an appointment, and the cost would be $50. He would not need to keep the ring, and the report would be ready that day or the next day at the latest depending on what time I came in. When I was able to make it in he was very knowledgeable and courteous. I did not have my
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
certificate with me, and he advised me to locate it. He explained that the certificate makes the diamond more valuable. Fortunately, I was able to find certificate so I brought it in the next morning. He amended the report to include the updated info and the report was completed that afternoon. The process took about 24 hours total. I was quite pleased with the actual report as it was very thorough, and satisfied all of my insurance needs. As an Angie's List member the appraisal only cost $25.00. It's pretty standard practice for jewelers to tell you a piece needs repairs etc., in an effort to up sell customers. They know most people will not risk losing a valuable/sentimental item due to a loose prong or whatever. This was not the case at all at

. I felt he was a straight shooter very honest. I was surprised at how busy it was each time I was in there. The owner and the employees were very respectful to every person that came in, and it was really quite refreshing to see. don't waste time and money at other places. It's just not worth it, when this little neighborhood "gem" can do the same for less.

I was considering selling some silver flatware I inherited. I was unsure of some local antique shops. I calling this business (NEAA) after finding them on Angie's List. I talked to a guy named Ed
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
. I was very impressed with the amount of time Ed spent with me on the phone. He gave me several tips and advice on how to prevent getting ripped off by any unscrupulous buyers. He referred me to a lady he knows in Florida (where I live). She ended up referring me to someone in my town. I still don't know if I will sell anything, but I feel I know a lot more about how to go about it after talking to Ed. His advice was very much appreciated!

Beware! Terrible experience!
It has been12 months since I signed a contract with Ms.
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
aka
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
. I moved furniture and accessories to a North Stamford home as part of an estate sale in August 2013.
I have not received a fact-based report about the sale and disposition of my property, and certainly no payment.
Ms.
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
aka
Tonawanda Antique Appraisals Provider Name Locked
has behaved in an unprofessional manner. She has not fulfilled her contract. She is unresponsive to requests for information and compensation.
In June of this year, after my formal complaint to the Better Business Bureau of Connecticut, she wrote to them that she had worked out a plan with me. This is not true. She has not offered a plan of any kind, only excuses.
Stay away from GRG!
