It's not only full of great reference material, background history and most of all business sense, but it is presented in a clear and precise manner which will enable us to be successful entrepreneurs. Both my wife and I have already put the estate sale liquidation services plan into action, and have received a slew of inquiries and requests right off the bat!" Thank you so much for creating this program!!!

"I have a job offer made to me to be an assistant general appraiser for a National auction house because they recognized this highly respected program and the in-depth studies it requires in order to be a part of this industry. As an assistant appraiser, I will be working with seasoned appraisers in the furniture department." Thanks Again!

"I have been in many businesses in my life, but nothing has come close to being as much fun, or fulfilling, as being an antique and collectible dealer. I love hearing from my customers, how much they appreciate me having the item that they had been feverishly hunting for! For the last year I have been dealing antiques and collectibles full time, and I can honestly say that I couldn't be happier...I never want to do anything else. My training with the "Asheford Institute of Antiques" has been VERY helpful, and I would recommend the course to everyone who has an interest in this field."

"With Christmas days and time spent indoors at the end of the year, I'm pleased to announce how grateful I was for your course! Every online module was so much more than I expected. I'm still enjoying the videos and pop-up picture sections related to Victorian Furniture, and even noticed that some new one's had been added (It's like going back to a book and finding new pages - love it!) Thanks so much for your excellent course!"

"Thank you for providing the course. It has proven to be very beneficial to me - it's like reading a good book- you're sad when you get to the last page. Thank you too, for all of your encouragement along the way - I did get the appraisal job, and have another four lined up. It has been my pleasure to work with y'all..."

"In my opinion I do not know of anything that could improve this course. As a college educator myself at one point, I know the difference between a good and a bad curriculum layout; and this one was superb. Your video presentations and links were thoughtfully integrated throughout the program and were worked to great effect in every Plan. I particularly enjoyed the sections on pottery and china. It has been a real pleasure to take this course and learn about the many different areas that constitute the field of the decorative arts. It gives one incentive to learn more. Cheers!"

"I enjoyed and learned a great deal from your plans of study. I had no idea how to set up an antique business until I had read what you had written in your profit Plans. I have already referred to the e-course material several times on my phone, when buying mid-century modern furniture as well as costume jewelry at a recent auction. The fact that you're constantly updating the program with new material is simply fabulous... A1"

"We have just opened an antique and collectibles consignment mall in our town in an old loft style warehouse on main street. So far we have over 30 vendors participating, with another 40 on the waiting list. Our business is doing great, and I'd be remiss if I didn't write to thank you for all your help and guidance - we couldn't have done it with out you, truly!"

"The course held my interest to such an extent that I could barely turn my computer off. When I am permanently relocated back from being overseas, I intend to start my own online auction site and appraisal business. The course was both enjoyable and really laid out the operational details of how to start your business in a truly meaningful way. Best educational investment I ever made! Thanks.
- M. Louden
"No doubt about it, your certified appraisal program is the gold standard! I've had so many more jobs since getting my certification from you, that it's hard to believe that I even considered myself an appraiser before... thanks so much for putting out such a fantastic program."
