I was extremely pleased with my experience with Ray Nugent and Olivia Nugent, with whom I began working on a whole-house furniture appraisal project in my home in April. Ray was my primary contact, responding promptly to all my questions and requests. Olivia was the on-site appraiser. She was prompt, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. They completed the appraisal promptly and delivered an appraisal report that was exactly as described, and exactly what I needed to support a sizable tax-deduction. If you’re in need of professional appraisal services, I could not speak more highly of Nugent!

★★★★★ Leon E McLeod
I would really like to thank you guys for your amazing job you performed for my family. We were all anxious to find out the value of our grandmother’s jewelry collection, and you helped us find the answer and relaxed our mind. True professionals in the appraisal field.
★★★★★ Frank C. Parker
My jewelry collection has expanded over the years. Every year I seem to add a couple pieces to my collection. One day, a friend of mine asked me about the value of my collection, but I was unsure. At that point, I decided I needed to get them appraised. Nugent Appraisal provided me with a thorough appraisal and prepared an appraisal report. Thanks for the report and I’ll sure to contact you guys when I need another appraisal.
★★★★★ John Levine
I’m an antique collector, especially china and utensils. I wanted to get them insured and I need to get a good appraisal. I did a little research and eventually decided to use the services offer by Nugent Appraisal. I got collection appraised and a report prepared in no time. What made the experience better was the fact they seemed as interest in my collection as I did. Thanks again!
★★★★★ Hadwin Kent
Whether it’s my jewelry collection or anyone of my family’s most prized possessions, we choose Nugent Appraisal Services when we need an appraisal done. They carefully examined my collection and provided me with a report in no time. Everyone in my family loves their service as well. Keep the great appraisal services coming!
★★★★★ Wilford McKenzie
I’ve had a few friends recommend me to Nugent Appraisal, and I took their word. And I’m glad I did. My appraiser was a true professional. He arrived on time, so that was a good start. He was polite, yet fully focused on the task on hand. Beyond that, he was very helpful and within no time, the job was done and I was a happy person.
★★★★★ Enrique Albizu
Very good. Very professional. Excellent service. Customer satisfaction orientation. I fully recommend it. I would contract his services again.
★★★★★ Reynolds C.
Ray was very responsive and professional. We live in San Francisco and needed an appraisal for IRS tax purposes on a charity donation of brand new furniture and appliances that had been purchased... (read more)
★★★★★ Annie M. Cook
When our mother passed away, she left her collectible with my siblings and I. We were honored to be heirs to her collectibles, but we were also curious about how value it was. We contacted Nugent Appraisal to do an appraisal for us. They were highly professional and double checked each collectible to ensure they arrived at the right value. Out mother would be so happy to know the worth of her collection that spanned over 60 years.
★★★★★ John M. Cates
In my younger years, I travelled the world, collecting fine art pieces. Now that I am getting older, I wanted to know how valuable my collection is before I die. Nugent Appraisal Service did an on-site evaluation for me. This was extremely helpful because my legs were not as strong as they were. They took a look at my collection and gave me the value of my collection. I felt a certain glee when I learned their value. Thank you, Nugent Appraisal!

John Kossos


RAY: Perfect Thank you. WE’ll keep you in mind for the next one…! Excellent service Thanks a million.

Pierre Everaert, NYC


Thank you so much Ray. My insurance broker was absolutely impressed by this report, as was I. He said he had never seen such a thorough appraisal report and informed me he would be recommending you to current and future clients of his. I will definitely use you again in the future and will certainly recommend you. Many thanks,

Adam Noles


I was so pleased when I found Nugent Appraisal Services and their office in Las Vegas. I dealt with Mr Nugent directly and he couldn’t have been more helpful with my appraisal. From start to quick finish, I felt as though I had been treated like a valued customer and I appreciated Mr Nugent’s counsel regarding the manner in which I should sell the piece he appraised. Also, I am writing as a person who spent 8 years in the art auction business in New York City and I am quite familiar with appraisers and appraisal techniques. Nugent Appraisal Services surpassed my expectations and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Gavin Young Jr., Las Vegas


Thanks Ray,
I will be sending over the other items in the next couple months as well. Thanks again for the very professional product. I will definitely recommend you to others!

Tom Bound, Tampa


I worked with Olivia over a span of a few weeks in a consulting role in order to find a one of a kind high priced piece. Not only was I very impressed by her knowledge of the industry, but was floored to know that she found exactly was I was looking to purchase in less than a week. A few weeks after the fact; I am certain that I received the best price for the piece because I had a friend like Olivia looking out for my best interest.”
Brent M., Fort Lauderdale, FL


Thank you for the quick turn around. The report looks great.

Matt Lilling, New York, NY


Thank you and Olivia for your very timely work!
Terry and I appreciate the work Olivia did in our home. She had to stand in the middle of a mess and was very professional.
I will be referring your company to anyone who may need an appraisal.

Liz W., Palm Beach, FL


Thank you for the reports, very good information.
I must say Olivia is very professional, I wouldn’t do business with anyone else. Completely satisfied with your work. I will highly recommend your services.

Vicki Levi, NYC


Ray, Thank you and excellent work. I look forward to working with you in the future.

John Freeman, Orlando, FL


Ray Nugent’s presentation at our DEMA’s March meeting was very valuable and informative. It was great education to those who have never done business with a general appraisal company. He taught us about the appraisal process, what certifications to look for and the ways in which they relate and work along with insurance companies and the IRS. If you are looking for an informative presentation Ray is your man!!!
Gary Cockerham, Palm Beach Chapter President

“Thank you.  What a great report.  Still can’t believe my 6 year old found a 5 carat ruby.”
Kristine, Naples FL


“Ray, I’m extremely pleased with the work that Nugent Appraisal has performed. Your company was highly recommended by my mother’s estate lawyer, and I can see why. When I explained that I was settling an estate and would be in Naples for only a short time, you went out of your way to arrange separate appointments with your Gemologist and a senior appraiser of collectibles, rugs, etc. over the Christmas holiday. Both appraisers came to our condo to do their work. What a convenience! They were not only professional and efficient but also very personable and informative about the appraisal process. The fact that I received the results within a week from one and within 4 days from the other meant that your experts were truly dedicated to providing the best service ever. We have total confidence in their findings and now feel comfortable in moving forward with the equitable distribution of property. You, too, have been easily accessible, informative, and prompt to respond to my inquiries. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to others. Thank you again.”
Nancy Crocker, Denver, CO Jan. 2013

“Ray, thank you for the quick turnaround.  All I can say is, wow!  The appraised value far exceeded my expectations and the appraiser’s comments clarified persistent questions I and other family members have had regarding the object’s origin and so on.  I’ve decided to stop using the vase as a door stop and to put it in a display case instead. Again, thank you.”
Tom McHalpine

Robert Dienert


“Ray Nugent grasped the essential idea that my work was important in recognizing the uses of color as a means to my lifetime goal: to deliver poetry to all people. My concept in the use of color was to show the elements and beauty of poetry, and Ray not only saw that but understood and appreciated it. As he said, you wisely used whatever technology was available, but in the end color was always the means. Ray Nugent has the rare ability to capture the essence of a collected body of work and appraise its true value.”
Dr. Edmund Skellings, Poet Laureate of the State of Florida
