While all our personal property appraisers have a general knowledge of personal property valuation, some of our members specialize in appraisals of specific types of objects. For example, some of our members in the Houston Chapter are accredited in specialties, such as art, antiques, Oriental carpets, furniture, and decorative arts, while others specialize in coins, memorabilia, collectibles, or general residential contents.

Whether your appraisal needs are tax related, such as charitable donation or probate, or insurance related, such as scheduling property or claim settlement, or litigation services, our Houston Chapter is happy to connect you with accredited appraisers in the right field. Visit our Appraisal Disciplines page for an expanded list of appraisers.

The American Society of Appraisers Houston Chapter hosts a variety of events to keep our members current in trends and standards in the industry. These events also give our members the opportunity to exchange ideas and expand their views based on each other's experiences.

About Personal Property Valuation

Personal property is tangible, movable and utilitarian, collectible, or decorative. It can be anything from paintings, antiques, coins, photography, vintage posters, Oriental carpets, musical instruments and more. A personal property appraiser identifies and provides a value for these types of objects. The American Society of Appraisers trains and accredits appraisers in personal property valuation.
NOTE: The designation ASA following the appraiser's name stands for Accredited Senior Appraiser and AM for Accredited Member. A Candidate member is one who is currently in pursuit of fulfilling the education and experience requirements to become a designated ASA member.
