The Third Track: Generalist Sessions at Assets

Elise Waters Olonia,
In a matter of days, we’ll be gathering at this year’s Annual Conference. You may have heard some buzz around the term “The Third Track,” referring to our generalist break-out groups on Sunday, perfectly suited for those who specialize in appraising estates. The term "Third Track" certainly creates intriguing visual imagery, especially in the historically rich town of Chicago!

Although we won’t be meeting in Union Station, some of us who focus on estates share a few of its attributes. For example, estates can be the ultimate gathering place for antiquities, intriguing artifacts and endless stories. Like Union Station, there may be underground treasures to discover. When an estate needs evaluating, there’s usually some bustling and fast movement, depending on the client’s itinerary!

“Get on board” and take a look at the Sunday program. There are three Generalist sessions which may get you on track if you don't specialize in only Fine Arts or Antiques, Furnishings + Decorative Arts! In the first session, James Jackson from Jackson’s Auctions will address those interested in the basics of general appraisals and estate liquidation in today’s market. The second session features our experienced instructor Mickey Logan and his student Carol Matesic, who will discuss their personal challenges with identifying comparables for unique items. Concluding the session, Carol Meyers Madden, writer and expert for, will share her knowledge on expanding your business through estate sales.
