I brought them what I thought was a hammered copper trash can, they were extremely professional, educated me and it fetch $1200 at the auction about 3 times more then I was expecting ... turned out it was a Gustav Stickley wine cooler!!! I would go to them first, then gauge other opinions against theirs. AAAAAAAAAA+++++++ All the way!

I saw their ad in Arroyo magazine for free valuation day and went there on a Thursday morning, along some friends with my 2 items to get evaluated.
Their receptionist was polite and we were treated to coffee & fresh brownies, along with the other people waiting. After 5 minutes of chatting with folks, I was called in and helped by two of Moran's staff: one for a piece of jewelry I inherited and another gentleman who examined a painting I own.

My ring was tested and verified by their gemologist to be an old 'mine cut' diamond and I was given an approximate weight and color grade, along with a value...which was more than I expected.
The painting was more of a puzzle, but they figured out the signature. It ended up being by an artist that Moran's had sold before...and the fellow explained who the artist was. It was a fascinating experience and very professional. I ended up leaving it with them to be sold and a month later, it brought double what they estimated it would at auction.

I kept my ring, because it is sentimental to me. Nevertheless, I am grateful to this company for their honesty and service. If I decide to sell my ring, it will be with Moran's.

Auctions have never been the same without John at the podium. The current auctioneer is bland, boring, and does not anywhere near the level of professionalism as he should have. Once upon a time, this shop knew how to do business. It's different now. Reminds me of water circling the drain.
