The Magnusson Group was recently featured in the November Newsletter by the Morristown realty company Acciardi Michaud Homes.
Founded in 1994, The Magnusson Group is a family-owned business that is New Jersey’s leading provider of personal property appraisals, asset management solutions and bespoke estate sales. Their close-knit team of professional, accredited appraisers helps HNW and UHNW individuals identify, value and sell home furnishings, art, antiques, jewelry, designer goods and objets d’art. Serving families and professionals from their office in Morristown, The Magnusson Group offers a capable, full-time team of appraisers, client managers, marketing experts, stagers and salespeople.
Helming the firm is President Lynn Magnusson, ASA, AAA, ISA AM, one of only a handful of appraisers to have earned three professional accreditations from-the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), the Appraisers Association of America (AAA) and the International Society of Appraisers (ISA). These associations are unique in that they require rigorous testing and continuing education. Her husband, Drew is Vice President & Senior Appraiser at the firm where he regularly mines his expertise in the precious metals market, art, antiques and collections. Their daughter, Lauren is the Managing Director of the firm’s marquee Estate Sales Division where she oversees multiple sales teams. The Magnusson’s full-time support staff is complemented by their national network of appraisers, specialists, dealers and collectors. From antique, vintage and contemporary items of decorative and fine art, the team has the resources and strategies to achieve top dollar in the ideal venue.
Over the past 25 years, the firm has developed strong relationships with all leading international, regional, and specialty auction houses in order to best represent their client’s interests. While markets and venues have evolved greatly over time and most recently since the pandemic, the Magnussons have had great success selling personal property of all types. This is because each collection requires not only the professional’s due diligence, but a deep understanding of the characteristics of value, attribution and identification, provenance, staging, photography, pricing and successful marketing.
Like so many small businesses around the country, The Magnusson Group found itself adapting to a new standard of professional practices in the age of COVID-19. Their goal was to remain efficient and safe, while continuing to provide the highest level of quality service to their trusted clients and customers. As an industry leader, they were motivated by both creativity and sustainability while maintaining COVID-19 protocols. Taking cues from the current landscape, they embraced technology to reinvigorate their repertoire and augmented their online presence in the form of sales (both estate and auction), virtual appraisals and virtual consignments. They have not looked back and business continues to boom both on and offline.
Selling with The Magnusson Group is not only easy but practical. Enlisting their services can yield more money in your pocket. They work to ascertain the optimal venue for your personal property while offering favorable consignment rates and preferential terms. Their seasoned team is at your disposal to offer affordable, bespoke solutions to your family, today.
