APPRAISALS

The office of Kramer & Kramer has two qualified, court approved personal property appraisers, with extensive knowledge in wide-ranging areas. With over 79 years combined experience, 14,000 auctions conducted between them and a reference library of over 415 books, Kramer & Kramer has the ability to provide accurate and professionally presented personal property appraisals. A professional fee, based on an hourly rate, is charged for all appraisals. Although both auctioneers chose not to obtain the state certification for real estate appraisals, H. John Kramer is a graduate of The Ohio State University, with a real estate major, and courts, banks and professional people have accepted his appraising of real estate since 1974. Horace J. Kramer has been selling and appraising real estate for over 50 years.

CONSULTATIONS

Kramer & Kramer is available for on site, or in office confidential consultations concerning your needs. Most consultations are done as a service, with not fees due; however, on occasion, Kramer & Kramer is hired for consultations in real estate, court appraisals, disbursal of assets or other areas which need their expertise. In these situations, a professional fee is charged.

CHECK GUARANTEES

Sellers are often apprehensive about accepting dozens of personal and business checks as payment for their auction profits. Kramer & Kramer has a guaranteed check policy that fits most sellers’ needs and allows the seller to receive one check for their personal property auctions, a check from Kramer & Kramer.

BUYOUTS

Some sellers do not wish to have an auction, either due to time constraints, apprehension of auctions or various other reasons. Kramer & Kramer will prepare a cashier’s check buyout of personal property, or real estate. Kramer & Kramer is prepared to buy any size estate, collection or property; however, Kramer & Kramer advises all clients that the best alternative for them is to sell their items at public auction, and pay Kramer & Kramer a professional fee.
