Christine Guernsey founded Guernsey and Associates in 2007 on the belief that that a high-end collection is unique and deserves to be appraised by personal property appraisers with proper educational backgrounds, experience and specialty knowledge in the collection areas being appraised. Therefore, every appraisal assignment should have a team of specialists specifically working on the project for their expertise in different areas, while providing the client with a private and confidential one-on-one experience with one representative from the company.
