Andrew Kravit knows how to determine the value of jewelry, precious gemstones and the contents of a home. One of the state's few certified estate appraisers, Kravit is also a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institue of America and holds other professional credentials.
"We focus on excellence in personal property appraisal, liquidation, advisory and expert testimony," says Kravit, founder and president of Kravit Estate Appraisals LLC, a certified appraisal and estate liquidation firm in Boca Rotan with experienced appraisers in 30 asset classes, including fine art, timepieces, fine wine, coins and currency.
"We provide appraisals for tax purposes, insurance and chartiable contributions." he adds. "We also help clients maximize the value of an estate through our flexible, transparent and cost-effective liquidation services." For example, Kravit offers clients representation fo their jewelry collections to international markets for a 10 percent commission — far less than local and national auction houses.
Before launching the firm in 2012, Kravit studied gemology and spent a decade with an acquisition firm. A member of the National Assocation of Jewelry Appraisers and a Certified member of the International Society of Appraisers, Kravit provides expert testimony on valuations in legal cases.
