 Home staging Laurieton, mid north coast – 10 Teal Close – Designing Divas We recently had a client that had an empty home getting prepared for sale who had asked me about the services of any local staging and interior design companies. I had previously met with Nicole and Michelle on a couple of occasions but had not had the right opportunity for them to refer them business. On this occasion I put them in touch with our client and they agreed on a package that would suit the property. Following the completion of the property styling our first open home was set for the first weekend which attracted significantly larger numbers than all of our other appointments on the day and larger numbers than nearly all of our best performing properties. The response was outstanding, the feedback online was excellent, and the large numbers at the open house led to a full price offer on the first weekend. Our firm will definitely be utilising and referring the services of Designing Divas in future.

Designing DivasMichelle is always a delight to work with and her eye for detail is remarkable, Todd Bates, Principal McGrath, Port Macquarie.

Home staging – Gordon Street, Port Macquarie 2444 The property definitely sold for the price we were looking for… Many properties are not getting their initial asking prices and I have had this happen on many other listings. With that being said I have honestly never had a staged property not get within the range the vendors were looking for and I do believe professional staging adds a significant advantage to the property being marketed. The house was actually on the market with another agency before us which ended up not selling in the 3-4 months it was listed. So, considering we sold it this time pretty much within a month and the staging was one of the only considerable differences (with new carpets and painting as well), it has to be said that it was well worth the investment. Thank you Michelle and the team at DESiGNiNG Divas. Sean, Shartru Agency. [View the property styled for sale in Port Macqurie] 

Home Staging – Daintree Lane, Port Macquarie 2444   I have used the services of Michelle at Designing Divas on a number of Real Estate marketing promotions. Some large full homes, others to just sharpen up the presentation. I have found her to be skilled at her profession producing excellent outcomes, reliable and helpful. I am grateful to have a service such as Designing Divas to call on when we need help with great presentation. Garry Knapp, Raine & Horne.

Home Staging – River Park Road, Port Macquarie 2444 A big thank you to Michelle and her wonderful team at Designing Divas for styling my property for sale, in Port Macquarie. When I opened the front door after Michelle had woven her magic, it felt so different and appealing. It was Garry Knapp of Raine & Horne who firstly recommended I have the house styled. Garry introduced me to Designing Divas who have a great reputation in the area for home styling that complements the property’s architecture and character. Michelle certainly had her hands full with my waterfront property. I couldn’t believe how many contracts went out after the initial viewings. I am, in some ways, sorry not to be living in the home, especially after viewing how a talented interior designer had brought out its wonderful features…But as Garry Knapp said in his marketing, “The Vendor has other fish to fry”. I wish the new owners every happiness in their new home. Camellia Flanagan, vendor. View the property styled for sale in Port Macqurie

Home Staging – King Street, Port Macquarie 2444  Without a doubt, the styling that was done by Nicole [Designing Divas’ Home Stylist] ensured that this property was presented to maximise the potential result and attention. The tones and furnishings captured the style of the apartment perfectly. We look forward to employing the services of Nicole again and again! Naomi Hunter, hem View property staging Port Macquarie home styled

Home Staging – O’Briens Road, Port Macquarie 2444 We loved that Designing Divas was able to incorporate our clients’ existing antique furniture with their own inventory to create a warm, homely appeal to prospective buyers. The challenge of this particular property was to work with the existing rust coloured carpet, and we were very pleased that they found a solution being to incorporate that colour into accessories and artwork which made it all flow. Sue Jogever, Belle Property click to view the home styling 

Home Staging – Ritchie Crescent, Taree, mid north coast of NSW 2430 From the moment I met Michelle, I was confident in her. We had been renting our once home for 2 years and were in the middle of doing some quite large renovations to the home to get it ready for sale. Michelle looked past all of the chaos and saw what she could do. After deciding to have the home staged by Michelle, she was in constant contact as to where we were up to and how her choices were going. All went to plan and Michelle arrived with all her goodies… Our home was large, big rooms to fill. We couldn’t believe the transformation! It was amazing to walk back in and see a home, not just rooms. Michelle’s insight into the feel of the home was amazing, she didn’t just put furniture in place, but made it a warm, relaxed, stylish and comfortable home, somewhere you wanted to be. We couldn’t recommend Michelle more highly, she was a pleasure to work with and truly has style. Thanks Michelle. Mark and Donna Hammond, Taree You can view the property on realestate.com.au;  Agency: Elders of Taree

Home styling and internal refurb – Hollingsworth Street, Port Macquarie 2444 Recently I decided to sell my Port Macquarie investment property that I have owned for the past 20 years – it obviously needed a good “freshening-up” and as I live in Newcastle, I looked for someone local who could assist me in this process. I was fortunate to find Michelle Burton from Designing Divas who coordinated an amazing team of professional trades people to transform my 2 bedroom unit into a fresh and modern styled apartment in just two weeks. I have nothing but praise for Michelle and her work – from the moment I first met her at the unit and listened to her suggestions, I knew I was working with a professional. Michelle’s ideas were practical and affordable and really made the difference to the final sale price I was able to achieve within two short weeks of listing, along with the professionalism of Keith Olsen at McGrath. They both kept in touch with me on a daily basis during the process so I always felt comfortable that the work was being completed on time, all the time. I know that I doubled my investment in making the unit look exceptional, with a real “buy me now” look!  Thank you Michelle and Keith! Peter Alcock, Newcastle click to view the home styling
