Based in New York City, Harmer offers appraisal services to collectors, museums, galleries and lawyers throughout the United States, the Americas, and the world. He also conducts professional and benefit auctions. Born in Britain and trained at Sotheby's London, Harmer became a department head and auctioneer when moving to the company's New York gallery in 1966. Since leaving in 1973, he has built his own appraisal and auction business notable for its international reputation and personal attention to the needs of individual clients and institutions.
