About Martin Carmelly

Martin M. Carmelly began his professional practice, first as a commercial Art Dealer, and subsequently (by osmosis) as Independent Consultant and Valuator for objets d’Art and Antiques. Since 1973 Dr. Carmelly has been an objective analytical observer of the market, thus ensuring that his clients benefit from the most informed and unbiased counsel and expertise.

In 1975, Martin M. Carmelly complied with the requirements for membership in Appraisers Association of America, and in 1980, after successfully completing the mandatory professional examinations prescribed by the International Board of Examiners of American Society of Appraisers, Dr. Carmelly earned his designation of Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) in the discipline of Art and Antiques — the first, and for many years the only, holder of this coveted professional designation in Canada.

Being an early proponent, researcher, developer, and long-time practitioner and teacher of the systemic “Mensural Econometric” methodology, an analytic approach to valuations for art and antique objects, Dr. Martin Carmelly’s professional reputation is second to none — the result of many years of continuing effort to achieve the highest level of professional competency.
