Utah Appraiser Links

Below you find a selection of galleries and individuals in Utah that offer appraisal services. Not all galleries employ professional appraisers. Often times galleries will seek the services of an independent professional appraiser.

The following selection of appraisers and galleries is by no means a complete list of everything available in the state of Utah. These listings are in no particular order. The Marriott Library does not endorse any of these companies or their services. They are provided here for information purposes only.
