"Although Mr. Nadel seems to be a professional thief, a letter with a legal header often persuades someone to take action."

This is a discussion message from Mr. Hoffman who lost items to Estate Galleries Auction located at: 1017 E Whitaker Mill Rd, Raleigh, NC 27608
Phone:(919) 900-8669

From, a few complaints about this auctioneer: bought item shipped wrong; sold item not paid. Finally, letters to this auctioneer cannot be delivered.

Yes, it moved to Florida, or it should be said Moved Back to Florida.

Sometime in 2013, it changed its name to be: Cassidy Galleries. When you click the link for Estate Gallaries on the website of, it will become Cassidy Galleries. 

 I consigned about 10 collectible items to Estate Galleries in October 2012, then I asked for the check many many times. The autioneer Gary Nadel kept saying: "will send check soon", "will send check next week". I have never received anything.

Later in 2013, I found that the company has moved to Florida.

Mr. Gary Nadel denied that Cassidy Galleries has anything to do with him. Obviously he wanted the consigners stop asking for his payments as he is out of the business. But if you call 954-545-0970 (number of Cassidy Galleries), it is Mr. Nadel who picks up the phone.

Mr.Hoffman said:"I have lost items to Gary Nadel as well.
He had four items he was going to sell for me. I finally received payment for two (after hounding he and showing up at the auction site on Whittaker Mill Rd repeatedly) although I believe he sold them for much more than he paid me. I picked up the third item and the forth (a set of six dining room chairs) are now "missing in action".

Hoping you have any contact information for him. Judging by what I read with a quick internet search, I'm not optimistic about receiving my chairs or payment." 

I paid over $4000 to purchase the items for auction. Gary Nadel said $742.88 is what he owes. Even this small amount has never been paid.

The following is the communication between me and Gary Nadel, it is obviously a fraud or Thief as Mr. Hoffman said.

In the messages, Gary kept saying will send check, even asked my bank account number, saying to deposit. Of course nothing has happened.

They do cheat buyers and sellers

AUTHOR: Watson - ()

Hi Michael,

Sorry for the late response. I just came back from Asia.
Though my problem is for selling, I did find a few complaints from buyers on
This auction house claims to be in business for 40 years, but Cassidy Galleries has only less than 2 year history. My problem came from its previous company in NC. His strategy is to change company in every 1-2 years as he creates too many problems to its clients --on purpose.
Before you buy anything, please do check carefully. Also make sure the shipping has no problem. They do cheat buyers and sellers. I saw items that they claim to be old, but actually new.
Thank you for asking and good luck!

Mr. Watson,

Can you please contact me at as I would like to know more about your difficulties with Mr. Gary Nadel in Pompano Beach, FL.

I am in the process of purchasing thousands of dollars of art from a recent acution of his and I have some suspicions about the works, his prices (way to low for the artists he claims he is selling), and his attitude when I first contacted him for additional information and provenance on several artworks.

Thank you.
