“Israel was a pleasure to deal with . Honest , reliable and extremely knowledgeable and good at what he does. Will definitely use Israel and Bravado art for all my future art appraisals. Highly recommended!“

Josh Miko testimonial

“Great experience across the board. Israel was attentive and knowledgeable about the paintings I brought in from an estate sale. They didn't end up being worth the fortune I was hoping for, but the whole experience made up for it. 10/10 would go again. “
