I have received so many wonderful client reviews and recommendations recently… I wanted to share some with you:

Peter, in Wolverhampton, wrote this on my facebook page: “I tried to sell my house for four months with no success and what little feedback I had hinted that the decor needed updating, come to think of it, they didn’t hint, they were quite blunt about it.  Someone suggested I needed professional help, I think they meant a psychiatrist actually, but instead I searched online for a “house doctor” and fortunately I spotted Lynn’s Home Stylers website.  I chose her because she even teaches other home improvement students how to do it. An appointment for an in-depth appraisal was made and Lynn duly arrived, putting me instantly at ease with her friendly, down to earth demeanour and soon started taking photos of the place and planning the changes needed.  I was impressed by her incredible attention to detail, noticing every little thing that was wrong with the layout. Lynn then sent me a spreadsheet detailing the plan, costs, schedule, etc. First, we had a de-cluttering day, where we separated my assorted junk into categories, worth keeping, worth using, sell on eBay, take to charity or consign to the dump, the latter being the biggest pile.  Halfway through the day I fell prey to a migraine headache, a common occurrence, but Lynn (who occasionally suffers with them herself and recommended to me an alternative painkiller that works for her) soldiered on by herself and completed the job alone. Next, Lynn’s husband, John spent a few days attending to the “handyman” tasks which I have neither the aptitude nor interest in doing.  Putting up window blinds, replacing a dodgy floorboard, various gardening repair jobs, etc. Lynn spent another day of organising with me and even found the time to weed the garden, clearing an entire border and filling my green wheelie bin to capacity and putting me to shame with her efforts. Following on, using trusted contractors that Lynn had worked with previously, the house was painted throughout using light, neutral colours.  It was a great improvement but combining that with the subsequent installation of the new carpets brought about a jaw dropping change for the better. The final visit saw Lynn and John arrive for the staging day where they put in place light fittings, curtains, ornaments, lamps, little tables and artwork.  By the time they had finished the whole place had been transformed into a showhome.  The difference was just staggering and it felt as if I had moved into a brand new house.  Now, instead of worrying about trying to hide faults from would-be buyers I am actually looking forward to showing people around.  In fact, I almost feel I should be charging admission.  Should I insist they take their shoes off? I cannot thank Lynn and John enough for their enthusiasm, attention to detail, remarkable energy, artistic skills and professionalism.  They are a genuinely nice couple and nothing was too much trouble for them.  If you need help to sell a property or simply want to revitalise your home for your own use then grab ’em while they are available.  Oh and what’s more, Lynn’s recommended migraine painkillers worked too!” See Peter’s house here… http://www.homemakeoverservice.co.uk/blog/home-staging-and-updating-a-house-stuck-in-memory-lane/

Richard is a property developer in Evesham, and he had this to say recently, with reference to the Show Home we completed for him:

Midge, from Belper, Derbyshire, chose me to stage their house – on the smallest budget possible. She truly believes the staging actually sold the house for them.  Everyone was impressed with the presentation of the house. One couple “said it was so unusual to find somewhere they could just move into.” Midge also said: “It really has been amazing to work with you. You are incredibly talented at what you do :-). Hard for the pragmatists like me to believe potential transformations before i actually see it happen. (I suppose that is why home staging helps to see houses (hopefully quickly) because most people just don’t have time or imagination to do it themselves.”

Andy Duncombe, from Magic Properties Ltd. was delighted with his low budget show home in Nottingham. He said:

Looking great, I have to say!  You have done a great job.  The flat has a lovely feel, I am delighted, and it’s such a pleasure to work with someone who delivers on their promises. Spot on!  It was a pleasure working with you on this project and I hope we can work together again in the future.”
