Never forget 9/11 Never Forget

Diana Sanders Cinamon is an IRS qualified and certified appraiser, complying with all USPAP requirements. We also offer appraisal guidelines for estate planning and donation appraisals.

There are many types of personal property and different types of appraisals. Antique appraisals, jewelry appraisals, and fine art appraisals are just a small part of our certified appraisal services.

In most cases, only a portion of your contents actually require an appraisal. This applies to most insurance appraisals, estate appraisals, and divorce appraisals.

Please call toll free to talk about your appraisal needs and our appraisal service fees at: (877) 255-5445, or visit the appraise-it-yourself page for a few pointers.
We are located in Southern California.

We do not buy. It is a conflict of interest for an appraiser to buy; it is considered unethical in our profession. Click on the link below for some suggested sales venues:
