Experience is the best guide in terms of appraising the value of possessions.
As a native of Los Angeles and having owned Foster Ingersoll for 27 years—where I helped people buy items to live a gracious life around entertaining and home décor—I know our great city quite well and have an extensive network of buyers. I also love to navigate the fascinating world of “all things owned” with passion and integrity.

My expertise and experience enables me to serve you in the following ways:
• Create an estate or household sale when appropriate to meet your needs.
• Generate ideas, strategize and be creative in liquidating estates.
• Find appropriate buyers.
• Assist with dispersal of possessions.
• Suggest charity donations.
• Give professional opinion of value for an object and legally binding appraisal.
• Write expert appraisals for insurance and tax purposes, and resale donations.
My commitment is that I will help you get a clear understanding of your goals, needs and preferences. This is a top priority as every possession and property has a unique story and I take the time to look deeper. I see the big picture! My solution is to simplify your life as much as possible (and simplifying our lives is also a part of being socially responsible). I encourage my clients to release whatever possessions they don’t use or need. This not only supports a new way of living but also embraces a more sustainable future.
It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy what we have, that makes happiness.

My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants.
