Testimonial

I don't know where to start! April and the team at Chic Designs are a DREAM to work with. I've done a few projects now and I can't say enough good things about her. 

First, she shows up and looks at the property in person ahead of creating a staging plan and estimate. I never worry if she's going to be client-facing because she's professional and her bubbly personality wins over my sellers, especially when they are scared about staging and selling! The process can be overwhelming to sellers and April helps me instill calm and confidence that we are going to knock it out of the park. And she DOES. (I own my own staging company but I have opted to hire April because she's just so good and I know when my stuff is not going to work!)

 

Once she's seen the space and we discuss it, she gets to work curating the perfect design for the space home to highlight its best features and to downplay any shortcomings! She puts so many thoughtful touches throughout a home and goes above and beyond without every "nickel and diming" me. Her pricing is fair and upfront and she's punctual and professional at all times. On our last two listings that we collaborated on, I got multiple offers within just a few days on the market and sold the homes for over the asking price in this softer market! 

 

My clients have called us the "DREAM TEAM" and that says it all. Collaborative, creative, comforting, cost-effective, and CHIC. Five out of five stars!
