Thank you so much for your diligence and detail in producing the appraisal report. I could (and will) spend a lot of time digesting the descriptions and references. Having lived with most of this furniture for the past 35 years, it is gratifying to gain an appreciation for its provenance and estimated value. Your report also persuaded me that I should continue to invest in restoration.

Dear Martine, I have received your appraisal, thank you. It is a detailed and comprehensive presentation and will be useful to me in disposing of the pieces. I am glad to learn the provenance of the furniture even though they are not true antiques, but I have loved having them and hope that someone else will enjoy them as I relinquish them. The suggestions you offer for disposal are appreciated. It was a pleasure to meet you and watch you at work.
Barbara Himber, Flemington, NJ

Hi Martine, You were so nice to work with on Thursday. I can see why you are so successful! Thanks for sending the charitable donation fact sheet. I’ll be in touch! Thank you.

I looked at the appraisal, and I am very pleased with the professional appraisal that you made. Thank you so much!
Amir, Medallion Gallery

I just wanted to thank you so much for your presentation. You are amazing! Considering we had no internet working for most of your prep and no printer, I am grateful and amazed at how cool, calm and professional you were for our presentation. I have been working on bringing these events to The Fountains for many years and by far you are by favorite. Thank you again. It was a treat.
Suzy LaPick, The Fountains at Millbrook

Thank you very much for your research and report. Your program was very interesting and got excellent reviews from Fellowship Village residents in attendance.

Dear Martine, I want to thank you. You have been so very helpful to me with the portrait and Oriental rug appraisal.

I just wanted to send a thank you note to you and your team for the great work on the appraisal. We are so appreciative of the speed and attentiveness that was provided, even though it was such a small estate. We will definitely recommend Bernards to friends, so if there's anywhere that it's helpful for us to write a review please let me know.

Thank you for the wonderful presentation here at the Peapack-Gladstone Library on October 23rd. I know I can speak for everyone present when I say I learned a lot, and your presentation style and knowledge were a big hit. I’ve heard nothing but raves from patrons who attended, and I look forward to having you back again in the future. Thank you again!

I also wanted to thank you for a wonderful program. It was our best attendance for the year, and I think everyone who attended was thrilled with the evening.

Dear Martine, Thank you for the expert appraisal report. I really appreciate the time you and your associates put into creating the document. Best Wishes for the New Year.

Martine, Many thanks for your very professional report. It would seem I am a much better art collector that stock picker. Jane will get back to you regarding the silver appraisal.

Dear Martine, The man who is preparing my “Valuables Policy” at USAA said he had never seen such a comprehensive appraisal report as yours. Thank you for all your efforts on my behalf.

Dear Martine, Thank you for your assistance during this distressing time for us and taking the time to explain the current state of the Oriental rug and antique market. We were so disappointed to find out our rugs have lost so much value! We thought we were buying an appreciative asset many years ago. Your thoughtful explanation helped to lesson the blow. Thanks again.
