Ohio-based appraisal firm expanding in the Midwest

Wipiak Consulting & Appraisals is growing. Having recently added two new associate appraisers to its roster, this appraisal company is now in three states.

SUNBURY, Ohio – Wipiak Consulting & Appraisals has announced the appointment of Don Johnson and Zachary Dillinger as Associate Appraisers, a move that not only gives the company physical presences in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan, but places representatives within easy service reach of nearly a quarter of the U.S. population, including a dozen metro areas throughout the Ohio Valley and the Midwest.

With more than 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 today – and every day for the next two decades, many are finding themselves with homes filled with possessions, some of which may be quite valuable, but without the information or the means to downsize or disperse their property.

“Even knowledgeable collectors of antiques and art often lack the market perspective to evaluate items in their homes,” said company president and CEO Andrew Richmond. “When I was looking for a way to help people be more satisfied with the process of assessing or selling their possessions, this seemed like a good place to start.”

Richmond founded Wipiak Consulting & Appraisals in 2016 to fulfill this emerging need and to provide assessment and advisory services to those making short- or long-term plans for their household goods and collections—plans where realistic estimates of value and a thorough understanding of the workings of today’s antiques and art marketplace are crucial for getting the best outcomes.

After only a few months, Wipiak’s business is growing fast, and Richmond was thrilled when the opportunity to hire Johnson and Dillinger presented itself.

“Don brings thirty years of experience in the antiques market and a sterling reputation for honesty and integrity, and Zach brings the keen eye of a trained traditional cabinetmaker as well as a youthful energy and passion.” Richmond sad, “Both gentlemen bring boundless enthusiasm for antiques and art, and, of course, a solid commitment to providing top-notch customer service. With them on board, Wipiak will be able to expand to meet the fast-growing demand for qualified and objective appraisal and advisory services.”
