Appraiser's Statement

Rachel Goodenow began working with antique dealers in Amherst, MA while pursuing her BA in Art History and Theory at Hampshire College. After college she worked with art dealers, an artist’s estate and a major museum in New York City, before moving to Albuquerque for her MA in Art History/History of Photography from the University of New Mexico.

For the past 25 years, she has worked with multiple auction houses and as an appraiser in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a generalist, she specializes in the documentation and valuation of large collections, including the entire tangible personal property inventory of homes and estates, and especially enjoys finding and working with specialists in any category a project requires. Rachel has a particular interest in normalizing estate planning and equitable distribution, and leads with the belief that people and relationships are always more important than things. She splits her work and time between the San Francisco area and New England/New York.
