“So glad I contacted Helen before marketing my home. Even though everything was already a pretty good standard, she had plenty of ideas to enhance the presentation for viewings. Having someone with a fresh pair of eyes appraise your home who is both professional and creative is invaluable, and Helen knows just what will appeal to potential buyers – and what won’t! My home sold within a week.”M. Cotter
“My TOP TIP for Home Staging, would be to employ the services of The Property Styling Company and not try to do it yourself! I called Helen and within an hour or two of her stepping through the door we had a new plan. None of the changes to the property she advised were costly. She contacted the agent, listened to the feedback they’d received, identified a couple of the problems she thought were preventing viewers from seeing our house as their new home and we swung into action….”J.E. Smith
“I asked for Helen’s help for a networking colleague, and she delivered with not only great style but typical generosity. I then asked her to do some work for me…Helen is not only a perfectionist but extraordinarily bright and talented. Incredibly valued as both a supplier and friend”.Gill Bray
“Helen has been an enormous help to me this year. Her expert opinion and advice helped me make significant progress on a property that had been vacant for a considerable amount of time. Thanks for all your help Helen”Martin Bown
“We recently modernised our bungalow and at the same time built a sizeable extension. The whole of the enlarged property required decorating and fitting out. We were keen to create a contemporary, bright, living space and, in order to save costs, were hopeful of re-using at least some of our existing furniture and fittings. We decided to seek the advice of Helen and this proved to be an excellent and very cost effective decision. Helen quickly came up with many innovative ideas which did indeed incorporate our existing possessions. In addition she was flexible enough to develop what ideas we had until we arrived at solutions with which we were entirely comfortable. At no stage did she try to force her views on us and at all times she carefully explained the logic which had led to her proposals, so we were always aware of where she was coming from. We are so pleased with the final result!”Mr & Mrs R Tisdale
“Thank you for your help and for doing the project at such short notice. We are hoping our tenants stay for a couple of years after all the hassle…(!) Still we are delighted we have rented it and being able to offer it furnished (and at such short notice) helped significantly.”K. Rickards
“Helen went over and above what I expected from her when arriving at my house to style it. It had been vacant for quite a while and was being staged to sell. She didn’t have to but she cleaned it from top to bottom which is a clear reflection in the pride she takes in doing her job. Her interpretation of the style and furniture required from just a telephone brief was spot on and made the home feel loved and lived in. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen again”.C. Hargrave
“We have worked alongside The Property Styling Company on several projects and would like to offer our thanks and appreciation for the work they have carried out with total commitment and dedication. We feel sure that it is a direct result of their efforts in making our contracts look 100% that has kept our order books looking healthy. To anyone thinking of using The Property Styling Company, we wholeheartedly endorse them, they are a committed company with a fine eye for detail.”J Tallack – Building Contractors
“With Helen’s help we were able to sell our property ‘Cartref’ after just one open home! There is no doubt in my mind that her support and advice in staging the property, to create the vision for potential buyers, was a decisive factor in the sale. Helen was easy to work with, highly professional and fully engaged in the whole process. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”Jacqui & Rob Sherman
“As many of your testimonials on your website have stated, you are calm solid and very supportive. And what’s more, highly imaginative and original in your eye for beauty. I know I am dealing with a professional as you spotted some of the details I missed and provided some winning solutions that have made my house very attractive to buyers. You treated my tenants and estate agent with tact and diplomacy which has meant things have gone smoothly and quickly. Thank you, Helen!”SJM
“The survey has been done & we are hoping, fingers crossed, to complete by the end of the month. You have done an amazing job – I absolutely love the way you have furnished the apartment & my daughter wishes she could have her flat dressed by you!”B. Rubenstein
“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. Thought out the period the house was on the market, Helen was in contact. I would thoroughly recommend Helen to anyone looking at having their house styled”.J. Jarman
“Actually everyone needs to know that it was a privilege to work with someone as professional and calm as Helen – truly monumental task tackled with style and elegance.”Tim Matcham
“Just a few words to thank you for the incredible job you did with our house. We couldn’t have picked a worse time to sell our house as the recession had already had a huge effect on property and we knew it wouldn’t be an easy sale. As you know technical building issues were not my concern but achieving the right ‘look and feel’ to the property was. I have no doubt that every pound spent on the styling and staging of the property was money well spent. We had no problem with any single viewing and lost count of the number of “wow’s” we had from everyone who saw the place (without exception). This resulted in a relatively quick sale in what was an extremely difficult property market and at the price we wanted. I rely on my first impressions a great deal when dealing with people in business and have to say that I was impressed from the start with your professionalism, expertise and talent which is a huge credit to you, so a big thank you. For any sceptics (including estate agents) of whether house styling/staging works and is financially justifiable, I guarantee you will be converted after seeing what Helen achieves. I have absolutely no doubt I will be contacting you in the near future.”Mr & Mrs Beta
“As home owners we were unable to see our own property through objective eyes when it came to putting it up for sale so we called in The Property Styling Company. It turned out to be an excellent decision, and our house sold for a very good price to the first viewer!
Helen came to advise us at a very early stage…..even before we had chosen our Estate Agent.
The written report Helen produced was thorough and comprehensive. She pointed out the stronger and weaker points of our house, advised on which points to stress in the sales particulars, which local Estate Agents had the right profile to suit the house and the area, etc. Helen also worked with us to improve the Estate Agents’ first draft of the sales brochure.
Both indoors and out, Helen was able to suggest numerous changes we had not considered. For example, we had no formal dining room and so – thanks to a few eBay purchases – we set one up in a little-used living room. Our redundant ‘playroom’ was transformed into a smart home office; a crucial selling point for our eventual buyer who needed to work from home.
With great charm and diplomacy, Helen advised on staging each room at little extra cost in terms of new household items: she knew just how to use what we already had. Helen’s wealth of experience really counted as she thinned down the ornaments, reduced the clutter, ‘calmed’ each room and unified the colours simply by the use of a few fluffy towels, a pretty bedspread, and so on.
It was a very successful and painless experience at a relatively low cost. Once all was done, and our Estate Agent was given the go-ahead, our home looked great. It sold to the first viewer, for a higher price than we expected, fully justifying the modest cost of Helen’s help. That’s success in our eyes! We thoroughly recommend The Property Styling Company.”M & P Calvert
