The Appraiser of Choice



Paul Golubovs, MBA, ASA, ARM-ARM, is very enthusiastic about his career as an ASA Accredited Professional Appraiser of Fine Arts, Antiques & Decorative Arts, Antique Firearms, Armor & Militaria, and other Personal Property.


Accredited Appraisers with specialty accreditations are often called upon not only for the valuation of collections (e.g., for noncash charitable contributions [for the intended use of income tax deduction by the donor], or for insurance coverage or claims, for trust planning, for equitable distribution, for estate settlement, or to establish stepped-up basis after the passing of one spouse), but also for deaccession market consultation, and assistance with the inventory and identification of objects, especially in realms where specialized knowledge is not only complex, but essential.

Paul is the only ASA Senior Member accredited in the combination of his five specialties which includes Fine Arts, Antiques & Decorative Arts, Residential Contents – General, Antique Firearms, Armor & Militaria, and Appraisal Review and Management. His typical assignments include assisting Estates, Trusts, Insurance Companies and Insurance Policy Holders, Banks, Private Individuals (for insurance coverage, trust planning, and sometimes for marital dissolution), and Attorneys (as a litigation consultant and on occasion as a court-qualified expert on issues of value and loss of value personal property).


His appraisal reports are prepared in compliance with the Code of Ethics of the American Society of Appraisers and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) 2018-19, promulgated by the Appraisal Standards Board of The Appraisal Foundation. His Privacy Policy is committed to safeguarding the confidential information of his clients. All of his clients’ personal information provided to his appraisal service company is held in the strictest confidence and in accordance with the USPAP and ASA ethics standards of confidentiality.


Paul looks forward to discussing your valuation issues, and can be reached at (858) 578-5540 or via email to or through his website
