THE LURE OF THE MASTER BEDROOM

If you've ever visited a Show-Home you'll have noticed how much effort the designers go to when planning and decorating the Master bedroom. Ok, I agree, not many of us tend to inhabit bedrooms that are as glamorous or indeed as 'over the top' in style and decor as a...

CLIENT FEEDBACK

“Sold at a profit above listing price”

Contacting Helen was undoubtedly the best thing I did with regard to selling my property - more important than the choice of agent even. Helen viewed the apartment and soon re-styled it on a very manageable budget. A pleasure to work with: very professional with a clear understanding of property, interior design and the housing market. She was also very accommodating, working with me across a number of different time zones. And as for the selling price? Even with the styling investment, the apartment sold at a profit above the listing price. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Helen & The Property Styling Company.

“Wonderful staging on our house”

Thank you so much for all the great advice, support, and wonderful staging job that you did on our house. To sell it so rapidly (twice!!!), in a declining market at close to asking price, is testament to your work”.

“An absolute pleasure to work with”

Helen did an outstanding job with dressing the properties for a marketing photography session. She came thoroughly prepared with stylish and tasteful decorative items (having met at the addresses in advance to discuss what I was looking for etc), worked quickly to set up several rooms in advance to keep ahead of the photographer, and put together a wonderful setting. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her enough for home staging and design; I hope to work with her again on any future projects.

“Thoroughly recommend Helen”

Living in Australia, house styling is really big here and is more or less the norm when selling a house. We were left in a situation where our house was empty and we knew that to sell it it needed some love put back into it. I found Helen via the web and she immediately responded. She was able to match our price range whilst still presenting the house in a warm and homely way. She was flexible and helpful in every way and constantly kept us updated. Not only did she style the house, she researched the area, provided advice on the current market and how to market the house with the agents. I would thoroughly recommend Helen to anyone looking at having their house styled.

”Helen is a consummate professional”

“As a point of comparison we had marketed our house for 3 months before Helen dressed it, then it was sold within a week. We are delighted with the Property Styling Company. In an illiquid property market they helped our family home stand out from the competition. As a result, our house sold quickly and above our expected sales price. Also note that Helen is a consummate professional. She also provided valuable and welcome suggestions beyond the direct remit of dressing the house.

“I have worked with Helen…

...on a number of occasions, with full home staging project or simpler styling jobs - at new and old properties. Her effort and attitude are 1st class, what Helen brings to a project is second to none. Don’t just take it from me, hire her!"
