Testimonial From A&E TV's "Flip This House" Star, JD Esajian

“Her magic helped me make lightning strike for my clients, bringing them two offers shortly after Jewell’s stupendous make-over.”

My clients home was ho-hum. The address was terrific, the price and marketing were spot-on, but the interior was stuck in a blah era that had a dated, tired feel. The property languished on the market and grew stale. Jewell saved the day – transforming the residence, making it a sparkling, hard-to-resist showplace. Her magic helped me make lightning strike for my clients, bringing them two offers shortly after Jewell’s stupendous make-over. My clients are thrilled, and so am I. Thanks, Jewell!

Jewell IS A GEM!

Whatever she takes on—renovation or staging—she is always there for her client. Even after we signed a sales exclusive, Jewell was by our side willing to help us in any way she could to sell the apartment.

With Jewell you are in the hands of a consummate professional who has a fine sense of design as well as excellent follow through.

"Property received multiple offers over three weeks; sold for full-price cash before Christmas"

Brilliant job for an excellent price.  No hassles. On time. And a property that is going to grab visitors imaginations.

You were selected in a field of six stagers we met with. You were not the least expensive but you were affordable and you seemed to grasp the goals of the homeowner.  Also your ideas about the shower doors and countertop resonated well with the owners and at the same time, you took the burden of doing it off of them.  Brilliant.  FYI, you were the only one of the six, who named the shower doors as a marketing challenge and I recognized immediately, that you have a quick eye for what sells and what doesn’t. Really glad they chose you.

I stopped by to photograph and the apartment looked awesome!!  And while I was there, the client and her husband showed up to do some cleaning and I witnessed their reaction to the newly staged apartment first-hand and they REALLY loved it.  Great job and thanks a million. 

The client also made mention of how easy it was to work with you, so thank you for making me look good.

Jewell makes my job so much easier. Her taste, professionalism and attention to detail are present in every aspect of her work, from the initial proposals all the way through the end result. My clients think I'm a genius for bringing her in, and everyone benefits from a quicker sale at a higher price. I recommend her without reservation.

I'm quite certain that Jewell's work staging my apartment increased its sales price.  Agents and buyers alike repeatedly commented that the decor and staging were outstanding.  The condominium also photographed beautifully.  The bottom line is that in a tough market, I was able to get my asking price, in part by positioning the condo as an elegant residence worth a premium price.  Were it not for the staging, it would not have been possible to assert this so effectively.

Ed Sussman, CEO of Buzzr.com, New York, NY

You were great.  Before we had you stage our apartment, our expected selling price was under $800,000.  You made an excellent proposal and were the most affordable of the stagers.  You delivered and arranged your furniture on time and within budget.  The apartment looked lovely, and at our first open house we received an offer at our asking price, which was well above $800,000.  And it was a pleasure to work with you!

When my mom passed away, I was left to handle her estate and get her apartment sold.  It was a two bedroom apartment in a prestigious building, but the apartment had not been updated in decades.  Before my accountant introduced me to Jewell, I felt completely overwhelmed and didn’t know how I was ever going to get my mom’s house ready for sale, all while grieving, going to work, and taking care of my children.  The house sat for months with no activity.

Hiring Jewell was absolutely the best decision I ever made.  She quickly put my mind at ease with her professionalism and calm demeanor and literally took care of everything from the time I handed over the keys.  She cleared out the apartment, handled all the donations, met with the contractors, coordinated with the management company, designed and managed the renovation, made all the purchases, and staged it beautifully.  I even made a couple thousand dollars from the auction proceeds of some of my mom’s art and collectibles that I had assumed was worthless.  It was also nice to be able to go on vacation while all of the work was being done.  I didn’t have to lift a finger, and when it was all done, I was able to sell the apartment for almost full price, after receiving multiple offers over just a few weeks.

If you’re a busy person like I am, and you don’t have the time or the desire to manage a renovation or design, then you must hire Jewell.  I trust her completely and highly recommend her to friends whenever I can.

Leslie Klepper, New York, NY

After we implemented your recommendations from our home staging consultation, we put the house on the market and we had 5 offers within 48 hours.  We accepted one for $9K over asking price.  Thanks for your help!

Dr. Kim, North Haven, CT

Our realtor recommended we contact Jewell to prepare our home and I’m very glad we did.  She took into consideration the fact that this was our home, and that we still lived in it when making her suggestions.

Selling a home can be very stressful; preparing a home can be equally as stressful, but Jewell made our job so much easier!  Her wonderful personality and patience helped to keep us calm and focused.

If another occasion arises, we would definitely use this company again.  Therefore,  we highly recommend Grande Properties LLC for your home staging needs.
