About Michael Logan ISA CAPP, Appraiser……..

Providing PERSONAL PROPERTY APPRAISALS  in Punta Gorda and surrounding Southwest, FL. These can be as simple as walk-through verbal estimates of value of items such as antiques, estate items, china, silver, coins,  etc. for curiosity or I can provide you with a written appraisal for the IRS or your insurance company or for appraisals ordered by the court. Many people contact me because they are dividing possessions among heirs or they are in the process of a divorce. I appraise all ‘antiques and residential contents;’ in other words, the things in your house–but not the house/land itself. Think of me as your personal antiques roadshow.
