a very sensible and useful way. We have chosen to have this book become the standard text for our course, Appraisal Ethics and Research Methods, and will be using it henceforth. On behalf of all here at CFA I want to thank you for this much needed work," said Walter Miller, CEO, College for Appraisers.
"Appraising Personal Property: Principles and Methodology - 2nd Edition" is for those who wish to build a personal property appraisal business and/or add appraisal services as an adjunct to an ongoing related line of work. Many personal property appraisers were first antiques dealers, jewelry store owners, auctioneers, restoration and repair specialists, estate liquidators, brokers, insurance adjusters or collectors. Their original lines of business can be enhanced when professional personal property appraisals are added to the list of services they offer to the public.
"For all of you who have emailed me over the years asking how to become an art appraiser (or an appraiser of antiques, collectibles, jewelry, furniture, decorative arts, and so on), I now officially have the answer.

Maloney, Jr. is a complete course book and reference guide not only for anyone who wants to learn how to appraise personal property, but also as a refresher course for those who already do," said Alan Bamberger.
