Trusts & Estates

For over 200 years Freeman’s has been serving trusts and estate clients across the United States and abroad.  Whether a single item or the contents of multiple homes, Freeman’s Trusts & Estates department helps executors, trustees, and heirs cope with tangible assets, from collections of Asian art or rare books, to fine paintings, jewelry, furniture and decorative arts. From the initial appraisal, to the auction process, to the “clean sweep” option, we attend to clients’ needs with concierge customer service, competitive rates, timely reporting and accurate settlements.

Freeman’s Trusts & Estates professionals guarantee the highest standards of appraisal services.  With both a team of USPAP-compliant estate appraisers and a stable of department specialists, we endow our appraisal reports with centuries of first-hand property expertise and market knowledge. When property comes to auction, our marketing department assures the client’s property of world-wide exposure.  Through our real-time online bidding component and marketing relationship with U.K. based, Lyon & Turnbull, Freeman’s auctions are seen by buyers and collectors across the globe, assuring maximum prices realized.

Throughout this process, Freeman's is dedicated to providing the best client service. This is achieved through close working relationships between clients and our team. Whether a law firm, bank trust officer, financial advisors, heirs, family offices or other estate professionals, our clients are given access to our wealth of company resources. We can assist with charitable donations, facilitate drop-offs of clothing to local charities, and assure that a home to be sold is ready for closing in broom-swept condition. Our clients’ objectives are our objectives.
