The RealReal Opens Valuation Office in San Francisco

This is the fourth valuation location the company has opened since August 2015

The RealReal, the online luxury consignment marketplace, is bringing its jewelry and watch valuation service to San Francisco.

At the RealReal valuation offices, RealReal experts, including graduate gemologists, assess clients’ items on the spot, offering valuation documents that state the item’s resale value on therealreal.com. The company opened its first valuation office in New York in August 2015 and has since opened offices in Los Angeles and Chicago.

“The success and expansion of our valuation offices is the direct result of an effective principle that the RealReal continues to stand by, which is to provide luxury consumers with a trusted, personal way to sell their luxury goods with a model focused 100 percent on transparency and authentication,” said the RealReal CEO and founder Julie Wainwright in a statement. “After a successful launch in New York City, we saw the huge appetite that existed for this type of service and are thrilled to expand it to major cities across the country, including our headquarters city of San Francisco. Given the demographic of this area, we’re confident consumers will find it highly valuable.”
