Kate is not new to Brightwells...

Interestingly Kate’s career began with Brightwells. After reading English Literature at Brasenose College, Oxford, Kate studied Fine Art to qualify as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and subsequently returned to her home county to take up her first position as an auctioneer and valuer at the Herefordshire firm.

“We are delighted that Kate is back with the team and joining us on a series of valuation days. Her wealth of experience and expertise in fine art valuation and her specialist jewellery knowledge will be a valuable contribution to Brightwells" commented Roger Williams, Head of Brightwells Fine Art.

“I have known the Brightwells team for many years and I am thrilled to be working with them again”, said Kate Bliss, "Valuation days are a great opportunity for people to learn more about their belongings and their value. You never know - you might be sitting on a fortune!"
