Estate liquidation and appraisal

FR Review:
Founded in 1991, Gramercy Park Estate Liquidation & Appraisal Services is a professional and discreet appraiser and liquidator with quick turnaround time. With over 40 years of experience in the business, principals Arthur Lesser and Ellen Kozminsky appraise fine art, antiques and other tangible property. The firm performs divorce appraisals, estate appraisals, charitable donation appraisals and insurance appraisals, in addition to conducting liquidations of personal prop- erty. Kozminsky is an attorney who once specialized in matrimonial law. Though she still does some divorce mediation, her role in the company is as business manager. Lesser is a generalist appraiser and a member of the Appraiser’s Association of America. He specializes in Hudson River School paintings and French decorative art.

Having a lawyer on staff adds an extra layer of respectability to the company, and this dynamic duo runs an expert, respected business (Lesser and Kozminsky were trusted by The Metropolitan Club to appraise the contents of its clubhouse for insurance purposes). Gramercy Park Estate Liquidation & Appraisal charges $300 per hour for appraisals, and there is a one and a half hour minimum. They also charge for on-premises time and travel. For liquidations, they work on commission, which is one third of the proceeds from the sale. Turnaround time is fast for appraisals (within one week), and liquidation usually takes around two weeks. Lesser and Kozminsky have worked all over New York City and have also worked in Lake Placid, Nantucket, Savannah, Naples, Delray Beach, Connecticut and New Jersey.
