Exceptional Trade Service
My experience with Gail Brett Levine and Timeless began, approximately a quarter century ago, when our company, Simms Jewelers, Inc., retained the appraisal services of Gail and the Late Howard Rubin, to take charge of appraisal services to our clientele. That has proven to be one of my more prescient decisions. The knowledge and experience that Timeless, Inc. brings to the appraisal table might be matched by a select few others in the jewelry appraisal field, but certainly not surpassed.
The major fear I had when Simms transitioned to an “Outside” appraiser was how the interaction between our clients and Gail and Howard would work out. NOT TO WORRY! Gail, while being professional at all times, has an uncanny ability to become one with the people with whom she is working. Gail is willing and able to discuss her results and explain how she got to the figure that was on the appraisal. For Simms this is a “must have” ability.
Gail knows, by first name, the jewelry specialists at all the major auctions and the not so major ones. She is in contact with dealers in the exotic as well as the mundane. Her research is never ending. The results of all this effort find their way into the appraisal documents she so assiduously puts forth. The reports that emanate from Timeless, Inc. pass muster with everyone from unsophisticated retail customers to judges in court houses and all stops between.
Succinctly put, whoever you are and wherever you’re at, you would be doing yourself a good turn by putting Timeless, Inc. and Gail Levine in front of your appraisal service clients.
