Will Paulsen

I have been an independent appraiser since 1980, providing full-time, full-service appraisals to private, public, and corporate clients nationwide. I also have been providing consultation services to private retail galleries, auctions, dealers, and consignment businesses, as well as curatorial services to private and public museums. I have additionally acted as a commissioned agent for private and corporate clients, including movie stars, elected congressmen and appointed White House cabinet officers, and nationally ranked Fortune 500 corporate leaders.
