It is rare to find a company that supplies such a high caliber of customer service in addition to being a "one source" for all of our appraisal and restoration needs. It was also a great pleasure to meet and work with your highly professional and accommodating research staff and associates.

Unlike my experience with other individuals and companies involving Judaica, you and your staff were courteous, knowledgeable, and extremely professional throughout the appraisal experience.

I was extremely pleased to find MIR Appraisal Services after encountering flood damage to some artwork. Mr. Radfar came to my home to conduct the appraisal. He was one of the most pleasant people I have ever done business with. He is extremely knowledgeable in this field of work. Mir Appraisal Services also does a wide range of appraising, from low to high end work. I highly recommend them for your appraisal needs.

Every interaction we had with you and your staff was professional and courteous and we were provided with the exact information we needed to report to the Board of Trustees. I wish every encounter I have would go as smoothly as when dealing with your business.

All of us feel much better on how to proceed with the artwork distribution and how to discuss possible future sales. If we decide to sell any of the pieces we will definitely use Mr. Radfar's services again. I will definitely refer other people to MIR Appraisal Services.

From the first day you and your staff were courteous and went about getting the job done with the least amount of disruption. By getting the best price on items the Eleanor Foundation will better be able to write grants helping young women in the future. Thank you personally for the help and patience that you gave us.

Mr. Radfar and his associates were so helpful. I wish I had more pieces to take in, because I found the entire experience very interesting.

On several occasions, I have sought Mr. Radfar’s opinion concerning items that were beyond my area of expertise. I have observed his interaction with clients and others in the antique world. I believe he is a man of integrity. He is knowledgeable fair, forthright, and considerate. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

I am writing to thank you for the appraisal report. It was well-written and truly illustrates the quality research that your staff provides. As you know, my fine art collection consists of quite a few American Impressionist paintings, and although I am quite familiar with them, your reports always unveil interesting new facts about the artists. In addition to being interesting to read, my insurance agent was satisfied with the information and was able to adjust my insurance for the appropriate coverage.
