A death in the family is a difficult time and, unfortunately, distribution of estate assets is often the source of hard feelings among heirs. Peace of mind is crucial, yet at times difficult to attain.

An appraisal may or may not be necessary; however, professional assistance could avert much of the discord when distributing assets and memorabilia.

A professional can help with inevitable questions such as: "Should this item be saved, donated, or sold?"  "If sold, by which means:  private sale, estate sale or relocated for private auction?"
