FAMILY AFFAIR
Wayne Nygard, Theresa Nygard at the Salmagundi Club on Dec. 7, 2011
Last night at the Metro NY Appraisal Institute's holiday party at the Salmagundi Club, we snapped brand-new organization prez Theresa Nygard of KTR Real Estate Advisors with husband Tom Pratt, brother Wayne Nygard (an appraiser with Randolph, NJ's Neu Bridge), and daughter Josette. Theresa came to NYC to study art history at Columbia, but once she took a part-time job in appraisal, she realized she'd never get bored concentrating on New York City. Eventually, she had a big hand in the redevelopment of 42nd Street. Former boss Jerry Haims pointed out the unprecendented difficulty she faced of appraising property and land values and highest and best uses on sex shops, regular theaters, other theaters, and second-class hotels.
