Kathy Poppers   contact info

Kathy Poppers ASA,

First inspired by a MoMA Pop Art exhibit at age eight, I was both aghast and captivated by Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Jasper Johns. Since then, I've been painting and studying Modern and Contemporary Art, and now also appraise Late 19th Century and Latino works. I'm actually a second-generation fine art appraiser. My first assignment was photographing and appraising a collection of Monet, Picasso, and Cezanne for a prominent Fifth Avenue family in New York in 1971. For more than 50 years I've surrounded myself with great and powerful works of art. Now I'm a Senior ASA Personal Property Appraiser, having served as past president of the ASA chapter, and am currently on the Ethics Committee in Herndon. I will be honored to become President of the ASA chapter.

Since 1993, he has worked with Wells Fargo's Real Estate Valuation Services (REVS) department, where he presently serves as Appraisal Manager for the Western United States. He is confident the Chapter board will continue to recognize the specialized needs of its members in tackling the technical details of their respective disciplines, and to address those needs through forums where appraisers from all disciplines may network to discuss issues and trends impacting the industry. He encourages all appraisers, users of appraisal services and guests to participate in our Chapter events.
