'Melissa helped our family with a large, multi-location estate appraisal. She was professional, efficient and easy to work with. The colleagues she contracted to appraise items not in her area of expertise were equally qualified.
The family was very happy with the final document and impressed with Melissa's ability to get things done quickly and guide us through this somewhat tricky process'.
