Recent Jewelry Appraising Reviews in Dallas
It went REALLY well!!! In fact, I always say, "Look no further for THE most outstanding service, quality, selection and professional expertise than Behnam Rugs in Dallas!" My family and I have been collecting fine Persian and Oriental rugs for more than a century and Behnam Rugs has been in business even longer, starting with Mr. Behnam's father and grandfather in Iran! Mr. Behnam "Ben" is one of the most knowledgeable rug dealers, restorers, and cleaners in the world! He is 100% up-to-date on the latest trends in home decor and brings over a century and a half of highly specialized knowledge and expertise to his work. This knowledge has been slowly and carefully handed down through the generations and across continents. How fortunate that Ben and his excellent team of professionals are right here in Dallas to lovingly restore your fine antique rugs, to clean and preserve your more modern acquisitions and to offer you absolutely gorgeous new rugs from India, Iran, Iraq, China, etc. to complement and complete your home and/or office decor. I LOVE the way Behnam restored my 100 year old Persian rug and I also LOVE my gorgeous, new taupe/gray/soft plum rug from India which goes perfectly with my new decor! Behnam is simply as good as it gets

Attics To Basements Estate Sales
Once I spoke with Mark W. Pittman on the phone and we agreed that Attics to Basements was going to be my choice, Mark came out toured the house, we discussed a few of the more unusual pieces and he told me what I needed to get done before the sale. We signed a contract specifying the particulars. We set a date. From the time Mark came to my parents' home until the sale I called or emailed him several times with questions/concerns. He answered promptly and genuinely. A few days before the sale he came out took pictures of certain items and described to me what I still needed to do and how he was going to set the place up. About 2 days before the sale, Mark and his crew came in and priced everything with tags. As I said previously, they knew their stuff; they worked quickly and efficiently, consulting with me from time to time about some of the prices. I was truly amazed at how quickly they worked and how well the items were displayed throughout the house. Prior to the sale I asked Mark if I needed to be present during the entire sale. His answer was that it was probably easier for me, emotionally, to be absent except for the selling of the car. So I came and went once the car was sold. The sale started on a Thursday AM - that was unexpected for me – and went through Saturday. I was amazed at how many people showed up first thing Thursday AM. The car was virtually sold before the sale even started. All of this is obviously due to the following and reputation Mark has, as well as the advertising Mark did. Some fellow from a publication actually came out and took pictures of key items as part of the advertising! At the end of the last day Mark and I settled up the financial matters and it was over. Most everything of importance sold. What was left we had a local charity come and get. Attics to Basements made something I was dreading and had put off for 3+ months seamless and really fairly simple (for me.) Mark had told me that 2 things were constants in his business; at the end of the sale you'll be surprised at what sold and what didn't sell. He was absolutely correct on those! I hope I don't ever need to do another Estate Sale but should I, I will get Attics to Basements to do the job and I recommend them to other folks I know who need their services
Attics To Basements Estate Sales
The guy from Attics To Basements Estate Sales was really really good. They take 30% out of the estate sale, and they handled everything. I didn't have to be there or set anything up. All I did was come by two days later and pick up my check. There was NOTHING left. If I ever unfortunately had to have an estate sale again, I would definitely call them. He is very dependable and very nice to work with. He is very personable
JARVIS GEMS & JEWELRY APPRAISALS
Great appraiser! Very detailed report, including pictures, gold weight, diamond weight, color and setting details. Extremely professional. I will definitely use Steve again for future appraisals.
The individuals with this company are very patient and understanding. They understand it maybe difficult for homeowners to let go of things some times and they just seem to have a way with the property owners. They also worked very hard for my friend to get them the best money for their valuables, prior to the sale some items were posted online to be auctioned for the owner to bring a better return. I really believe their desire is to advocate for the home owner and make them as much money as possibl
The appraisal was done on time (even early) and they even cleaned the ring I was wearing for free!
Rockwall Gold and Silver Exchange
I went to Rockwall Gold and Silver Exchange, in the Harbor area, to cash in some gold jewelry that I had. The people were very friendly. I was able to get right in without an appointment. The gentleman explained the entire process to me and made me feel very comfortable about the whole transaction. I would recommend this company to others
I drove from Wimberley, Texas to Dallas, after receiving a trusted referral and having done extensive internet research, to meet with John Buxton. He has been in the antiques and appraisal business for over 35 years and specializes in African, pre-Columbian, South Pacific, and American Indian Art. He has also been an appraiser with Antiques Roadshow since its inception in 1997. I arrived at his place of business on time and was greeted at the door by him. I'm not sure what kind of person I expected to meet and found myself shaking hands with an affable and warm person. He invited my dog in from the car, handed her off to his assistant, then assisted in removing my items from my vehicle. We proceeded into his and quot;officeand quot; which felt like one of the most incredible art exhibits I'd ever laid my eyes on (keep in mind I've been in the art business for over 22 years and have traveled the world and been in the very best museums.) I was in a kind of heaven quite frankly. We sat down and chatted for a bit about our own histories and adventures in the art trade as well as how I had come into these African works of art for which I was seeking basic verbal appraisal information. He was open to answering all of my questions about his knowledge base and how he came into his profession. It was fascinating to say the least. He took his time in reviewing the various pieces. I was pleased he did not rush through the process. His ability to identify the art was uncanny and including the regions, tribes, materials, dateline of creation and current market value as well as including some really great anecdotes. I sat with my notepad jotting down the information for which he was very patient. John gave me all the information I was seeking and then some. My experience with him was far greater than I could have ever imagined and his fee was very reasonable and well worth it. I have since been able to sell half my collection with confidence for which I was in the dark prior to our meeting. I highly recommend his excellent professional services!!
Called another company and technician looked at the clock and gave anestimate of 550.00. Called Tony and from the phone conversation it became evidentthat he knew all about grandfather clocks. When Tony came over he expertly removed the face and hands toget to the movement, and discovered the problemTook the movement to the shop and returned in a couple of daysand reinstalled the movement. Tony says he has thirty years in the business and I believe him.

"From the onset of the project, Mr. DeGaul addressed us with no small amount of haughtiness, arrogance and an odd mix of passive/aggressive and commandment-style approaches. To say that his methods of communication were off-putting is a massive understatement.
Throughout the preparation and sale process, Mr. DeGaul consistently made decisions that left us wondering about his competence and understanding of the merchandise he was representing. This was not the first estate sale we had experienced (our third, actually) so we were very well prepared for the process and the emotions that can accompany parting with possessions. It was amazing, however, to hear Mr. DeGaul disparage every item we owned, as if though it were pure trash. If we looked at diamonds, Mr. DeGaul would say they were of "substandard quality". For Waterford and Wedgewood, we were told it "might make a little money". All in all, his approach was to constantly assert that nothing we owned was worth selling - a point which we knew to be patently false.
As the sale progressed, we noticed that Mr. DeGaul did very little to re-prepare the house (i.e. clean-up and re-arrange from the prior day's activities) for the next day's business. As each day passed, the property looked worse and worse, to the point that my wife and I spent time each evening cleaning and straightening - in an attempt to present the merchandise in the best possible light. After all, even at an estate sale, people want things to be presented in the most attractive manner possible, to achieve the highest possible sale price.
Mr. DeGaul's assistants were a mixed lot: One gentleman was affable and friendly, and appeared to be of considerable service to the buyers. The other gentleman was rude, obnoxious and downright nasty. Additionally, it was impossible for buyers to determine who was or was not "working" the sale, as the staff had nothing to identify themselves - no nametags, colored vests, nothing.
Again, as the sale progressed, we discovered whole parts of the house (bathroom, closets, drawers) that hadn't been emptied and the merchandise prepared for sale. We made it extremely clear: Sell everything you see, with a few, specific and noted exceptions - which were clearly marked. When we discovered any number of items that were not presented for sale, we can only presume either incompetence or laziness on the part of the preparation team.
While it may be common to some estate agents, we've always observed that an item which is presented with all parts intact, in the original package and in good condition, will achieve the most optimal price. Mr. DeGaul made very little effort to ensure items which had multiple parts were consistently placed together and that items with their original boxes were sold together. After the sale we've been discovering any number of things "left behind" or simply separated from their other components - which, had they been properly "paired", would have yielded a better return.
It's also apparent that Mr. DeGaul and his team spent very little effort on oversight of the buyers as we've discovered numerous items which were broken during the sale process and dumped in our trash bin. While we all know that things do, indeed, get broken, there is simply no reason for such a large amount of damage to occur. What about the shopkeepers adage: You Break It, You Buy It? Apparently it doesn't apply in this instance.....
Finally, Mr. DeGaul and his team were absolutely ineffective in observing and controlling the movers as they removed large items (sofas, tables, book cases, et al) from the house, as there is significant damage that I must pay to have repaired. This kind of damage is strictly and solely the responsibility of the mover - yet, Mr. DeGaul's team made absolutely no attempt to hold them responsible for their actions. In one particularly egregious instance, we discovered - after the fact - damage to concrete in the garage after a 1,200 pound fire-safe was moved. I'm not sure how, or if, this damage can be repaired, but it is clearly not the kind of result acceptable in this situation.
While Mr. DeGaul did complete the sale, as promised, he did not meet any reasonable standard of conduct, both personal and professional. In our prior estate sale experiences we found the other managers to be much more professional in their performance, much more attuned to details and better prepared to work hard for their clients.
I cannot impeach Mr. DeGaul's honesty, nor can I attest to it, but I can say I believe I was treated fairly with regards to the monetary side of the transaction. At the end of the day, I suppose this may be the ultimate deal-breaker: Did you actually get paid? We were paid my Mr. DeGaul in a timely and fulsome fashion, so on that count, he scores positively.
Bottom line, I would not recommend Mr. DeGaul (and, in fact, have advised a family friend not to use his services) for the myriad reasons noted above.
