Knowledgeable. Experienced. Diligent. Professional.

     Personal property appraisal demands knowledge of material culture – its history, qualities, and forms. It also demands a sophisticated understanding of objects and their markets – valuation methodology. Through the course of her professional career, Holly Mitchem, founder and principal of Mitchem Arts, has continued to develop her knowledge of fine art and its markets, and to hone her expertise as a valuation professional.

     As an Accredited Senior Appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers with over 25 years of fine art appraisal experience, Holly has valued a wide variety of fine art for charitable contribution, estate taxation, asset management, to assist with insurance coverage, and the settlement of damage and loss claims. She regularly brings her knowledge of fine art and its markets and professionalism to the courtroom, consulting in pretrial conference and testifying at trial, mediation, and arbitration proceedings. Holly's clients include private collectors, attorneys, insurance agents and adjusters, and asset management professionals who require unbiased, highly qualified, logical, articulate, and confidential personal property appraisals.
