The Nugent Appraisal staff is an experienced team of Dade antique appraisal experts. We have been certifying the value of all categories of antiques since our most senior antique appraiser, Ray Nugent Jr., founded the firm in 1976. We provide onsite antique appraisal service throughout all of Dade County, and surrounding counties.
Our certified reports meet all Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) standards as required by Insurers, Government Agencies, and the Courts. We have no personal interest in your antiques. We are not buyers or dealers of antiques. Our service is to produce a USPAP compliant, certified report that serves as an independent, disinterested valuation. Our reports are used for the following purposes:
As antique appraisal experts that understand the true value of antiques, we do not recommend handling your antiques like a piece of luggage – loading it in the car and traveling to an appraiser. Our Nugent Family team of experienced antique appraisers are all insured and bonded with general liability insurance and professional liability insurance. We adhere to a strict code of professional ethics and you can be assured your appraisal report and all of our work notes are strictly confidential.
“Antique” is a designation used for the age of item. Therefore, all different kinds of items can be considered antique or almost antique (vintage). The Nugent Appraisal team has extensive experience in understanding, identifying, and certifying the value of a broad range of antique items including:
Furniture – Rugs – Decorative Art – Collectibles – Crystal – Silverware – Fine China – Coins
We certify the value of thousands of antique items every month with our service that stretches from north of Orlando to the Keys. Many of our professional clients, and their referred clients, are working on tight deadlines. Our appraisers can typically perform the onsite examination within days of your request. Several more days will be required for office time where we analyze our images and descriptions of your antiques, identify, perform the required market research, and produce the certified report. We also provide Expert Witness testimony in support of our industry standard procedures and independent report.
