  • EstateMax Estate & Downsizing Sales & Auctions
    5.0
    I cannot say enough good things about the work performed by Laurie Zook and the entire Estatemax team. This project was with an old house filled with antiques and a barn. Laurie communicated at each step of the way and answered any questions I had. I would hire her again in a second. Experience matters in large estate sales and her years of experience shows in every step of the process

  • David Reynolds Jewelry and Coin
    5.0
    My parents estate included about 8 rings and/or jeweled pieces. I had no idea of their worth (if any) and took them to David Reynolds for valuation. They looked at each piece, informed of their composition and offered a valuation for them at selling price and also at replacement price. They kindly did this at absolutely no charge. Their own custom made rings and jewelry also looked very nice. Their staff was attentive and very gracious. I'd highly recommend them for your jewelry valuation or other jewelry needs

  • Cooper's Auto Service, Inc.
    5.0
    Called several places, because of apparent water pump leak. This required removing the radiator, replacing the water pump and putting in new timing belt. We had car towed in to Cooper's. They did an evaluation. Called and said that it appeared that the water pump was OK, it was the coolant bypass hose, they would replace it and run car and see if that was problem. They called back and said that fixed problem, but the battery would not hold a charge and they advise me of other things that were a problem. This was my daughters car, old and in not very good shape. I asked them what needed to be done to make it dependable and safe. After going through the obvious things we decided to have the above things done. They called to check with me before doing anything additional. They were courteous and responsive. When working on brakes, found rotors were worn out, this added an additional $100.00 to the job. The car was taken in right after the bad snow

    It was a lot of work. More than I could handle myself. Clearing out the storage has saved me $420 a month.

  • EMS Estates
    5.0
    I contacted Elizabeth at EMS Estates for an appraisal for a divorce. It was a raw time, and Elizabeth was kind and empathetic while maintaining a professional approach to the appraisal. She explained the different kinds of appraisal, from liquidation value to replacement value, and worked with me to properly appraise the items for a divorce settlement. Elizabeth and her team were able to complete the appraisal quickly, and then explained the appraisal report in clear terms. EMS Estates is a great company and highly recommended

  • GOLDWORKS
    5.0
    Goldworks appraised a small amount of jewelry and gold for me. It was not very valuable. They took their time and the woman who helped me even spent time consulting with the jeweler about some pieces. Even when other customers came in the woman who helped me stayed with the appraisal and let other employees handle the new customer. I had some idea of what the gold value of the jewelry was worth and Goldworks, offered, and I accepted their offer, which I thought was fair. I thought Goldworks did a professional and courteous appraisal and transaction

  • PACIFIC GEM LAB INC
    5.0
    I originally contacted PGL and 3 other appraisal companies via email to ask for an approximate estimate for jewelry appraisal, providing a list of the items. Within hours PGL had responded, explaining the process for appraisal and the cost per item, and recommending a pre-appraisal sorting appointment. I said I would contact them at a later date to set up an appointment, and they again acknowledged my email with a "looking forward" response. I contacted them the following week, and they were able to schedule an appointment for me for 3 days hence. At the appointed time, Ms. Miller efficiently sorted through about 25 jewelry items, quickly identifying genuine vs. costume items. We discussed my motivation for the appraisal (insurance purposes), and she performed a rough appraisal-at-a-glance to categorize the genuine items into three value categories of and lt;$200, $200-500, and $500+ . Based on that, I contracted to have 5 items appraised, at a rate of $90 for the first item and $70 for each additional item - for a total of $370. She said they would be ready by 2 pm the next day, and if they were ready earlier PGL would call to let me know. At about 1:15 the next day PGL called to let me know the items were ready for pick up. Ms. Miller had determined upon additional examination that one of the five items was not actually worth as much as initially thought. Since it was not actually in the value category of items I selected for appraisal, she opted to not execute the appraisal, and my bill was adjusted down accordingly to $300. Note that if I had only had the sorting done and not the appraisal, I would've been charged for sorting at Ms. Miller's hourly consultant rate. Since I also had the appraisal done, there was no charge for the sorting. The items were cleaned as part of the appraisal process. The reports I received were very detailed, providing color photos of each item, measurements, and gem stone quality assessments along with the retail replacement value. Ms. Miller and her associates provided friendly and professional services
