Expert Estates is owned by the area's most experienced personal property appraiser. A Sotheby's Vice President has endorsed Lisa saying, "Working with Lisa was a pleasure. She's highly personable, intelligent, and an excellent resource for her clients."

Expert Estates is owned by a trained CAGA Certified Appraiser. Beware of companies that mention being appraisers without telling you which appraisal association they are trained and certified by (CAGA, ISA, and ASA are some of the most popular). We recommend that you check with the certifying association directly to verify an appraiser's membership.
