Although a member of the International Society of Appraisers, we no longer offer appraisal services.

QUALIFICATIONS

I have been doing appraisals for thirty years and have had extensive experience in almost every venue of the personal property appraisal field. I own and operate Pia’s Antique Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee, where we have been in the same location for over fifty years. I am the principle buyer for the store and most of the merchandise is handpicked by me through multiple channels, both local and national, as well as abroad. I am therefore very familiar with the current market value of antiques and collectibles.

In the past fourteen years, I have built a large Internet business, in which I sell my own items as well as brokering items for individuals from a single piece to an entire estate. I have modern computer systems as well as a brilliant technician who aids me in this endeavor. Along with using the Internet for research I also have an extensive Library. I also visit antique shows, museums, auctions, and travel extensively. I feel this gives me a wide exposure to worldwide trends in the Antique market. I have attended personal property appraisal seminars and successfully passed the Ethics exam portion for the Appraisal Society of America.

For five years 1988-93, I hosted meetings for the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers. In August of 1999, I traveled to the American Society of Appraisers Convention in Boston, Massachusetts, and attended several classes in personal property appraising as well as completing the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) course, and afterword took and passed the subsequent examination.

Served in court as an expert witness on several of my appraisals. Fully accredited member member for the International Society of Appraisers. 2003 ISA’s Expert Witness Course
