PETERSEN LEGACY

Petersen Legacy

Over 50 years ago, Gary Petersen began working in the car appraisal business. Knowing car valuations was a critical piece of his used car businesses, auction barn, auto auction, new car dealership and his classic car auctions. Today, Petersen Appraisals is still a family business. 

Garyʼs grandson, Bryce Petersen, began working and learning the appraisal business with Gary as a teenager and fell in love with classic and special interest vehicles even before he could drive. As an adult, Bryce currently owns and operates Petersen Auto Appraisals and is the Vice President of the Oregon Auto Appraisers Association.
