Ray Nugent, antique appraiser and senior accredited appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers, founded the Nugent Appraisal firm in 1976. For almost 40 years as a Florida antique appraiser he has been a trusted expert for professionals and their referred clients, individuals, and families throughout the state. We now have three generations of Nugents, expanding our area of expertise, certifying the value of Fine Art, Jewelry, Collectibles, and General Residential Contents.
As accredited appraisers we adhere to a strict code of professional ethics. We have no personal interest in your antiques. As you are aware – you never want to ask someone what something is worth when they want it from you, even an expert. We provide an independent, disinterested antique appraisal valuation. Our reports meet the highest industry standard as required by Insurers, Government Agencies, and the Courts. Our reports are used for the following purposes:
Ray Nugent and the Nugent Appraisal team of antique appraisal experts are insured and bonded for general liability and professional liability. On your schedule we visit your home, business, or storage facility to perform a hands-on examination of your antiques. If you have a limited number of items that are identifiable from images and descriptions, it may not be necessary to perform an onsite examination in order to certify values. If we can reduce your cost by eliminating an examination while producing a certified report, we will discuss this option with you.
