Minerva Appraisal is not…
An auction house or estate sales company seeking to buy your property or profit from it.
However, if selling is your goal, we can assess and discuss all options, including estate sales, consignments, direct-to-dealer sales, and national and local auction solutions. Because we are 100% independent, we are 100% neutral and will recommend only courses of action which we believe will maximize the value of your assets.

Who was our namesake?
Minerva was the goddess of wisdom and sponsor of arts, trade, and strategy. Thought by the Romans to be equated with the Greek goddess Athena, she is often depicted with her sacred creature, an owl. She is also associated with the moon goddess Meneswa, or “she who measures.”
