The American Society of Appraisers is the oldest appraisal society in the United States. ASA has been training professional appraisers since its precursor, the American Society of Technical Appraisers, began in 1936. Today, ASA is still the country’s only multidisciplinary appraisal society, providing its members the most solid grounding in the appraisal principles that underlie all classes of property: real, personal, tangible and intangible.
In a word, that’s lineage. Because ASA is a non-profit professional society, we explore the principles of valuation as they evolve from basic economic theory and legal precedent in an atmosphere of collegiality and exploration, with instructors who are leaders in the profession.
ASA is the acknowledged leader in personal property (PP) appraising and includes members who perform appraisals for various purposes such as sale, acquisition, taxes, estate planning and more. Personal Property members can specialize in over twenty-six (26) specialties from fine arts to oriental rugs to Numismatics to fine wine.
Our titleholders (Accredited Members and Accredited Senior Appraisers) are among those that consumers trust the most. Three-quarters of a century in appraisal education count when you want the finest service in PP appraising. Contact one of our accredited appraisers and you’ll find out that lineage means…excellence in personal property appraising.
