Read what our New Hampshire based clients have to say about Design Quest’s real estate staging, interior design and design consultation services.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Kelli on an 1800’s listing that had an unusual upstairs layout. She helped me put together a vision of “what could be” if the next owners had different space needs. Her professional and insightful approach to the design of the upstairs was invaluable to me. When it came time for me to show the home I could sell the possibility of what Kelli had laid out for me. She also offered her service of a 3D color CAD drawing which would show specifically how to best utilize this space. She provided a few different spatial options, took measurements and really helped the overall sale go much smoother. Another quick sale that I believe was helped along by the consultation that Kelli provided.
Kelli was wonderful. Professional, understood what I wanted and didn’t push for more as I have experienced in the past. In fact I was going to get a new front door and she said that would be good. But then sent me a message the next day saying “you know, I’ve been thinking, I think a new coat of paint and new hardware would look just great. And it does!!!” “She also picked out wall colors for my entire house, and it’s almost done and it looks BEAUTIFUL. Thank you Kelli!!!
I was very grateful to have Kelli’s talent staging my house to put on the market. She was able to transform my home into a showplace, while being sensitive to the needs of my family. Kelli was on time and easy to communicate with, in person and by phone or email. I would highly recommend her services and feel that her help enabled me to sell my house quickly (3 days).
I have worked with Kelli for several years and she is wonderful with our clients. She takes time to listen and understand the necessary tasks and is considerate in how she makes her recommendations. Her design style is in line with what today’s buyers and sellers are looking for and she makes every effort to work with both the client and their agent to produce a wonderful end result. I highly recommend Kelli.
My experience with Kelli has been very positive. Her help has enabled me to be more effective as an agent and has resulted in a higher sales price for my clients. I had a property on the market for 6 months without an acceptable offer. It was a good house, but buyers could not see past the owner’s dated furniture and unusual possessions. Kelli met with the sellers and convinced them to pack and remove much of what they had in the house, swapping out some of their furniture for new, modern pieces. Fresh, young accessories and art work were added. The result was a bright, open feel that allowed buyers to see how much the house had to offer. Resulting in the property going under agreement within 10 days for $17,000 more than any previous offer. Kelli’s friendly and professional manner makes her very easy to work with. She leaves sellers with a detailed, written list of recommendations, explains what buyers are looking for and how making the changes can improve the final selling price. I definitely plan to have Kelli work with me and my sellers in the future and have recommended her to other agents.
I brought Kelli in for a staging consultation for a home that had a room that needed an identity desperately. The home was situated differently on the lot so you walked directly into this room. Kelli provided no nonsense advice on what to leave, what to take out, and where to put things. She scoured the home for furniture that made the most sense for that critical first impression room. The suggested color change of the entry wall made a huge impact on the feeling when you entered into the home. The action plan she provided was well received and helped my clients realize what they should be focusing their time and energy on. This helped them feel less overwhelmed. I firmly believe that her professional approach helped me set the stage for a successful open house and a quick sale!
We worked with Kelli while preparing to sell our home. Kelli helped us create a more appealing layout of furniture, a better use of natural light, and an overall fresher look to our home. Kelli made specific suggestions, some I was hesitant to make initially, but we are very glad we trusted her judgement and taste. Many positives comments we received from Realtor feedback was due to her guidance. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Design Quest Interior Styles & Staging.
I had trouble selling my house and I asked Kelli to help me stage it, it sold within 1 month! She had fantastic ideas! I would absolutely hire her again!
I am a return client of Design Quest. Kelli is extremely professional, friendly, and easy to work with. She has a great eye for colors and detail for designing any project! Kelli redesigned my kitchen for me and what a difference! Now I can say I truly love being in my kitchen. The colors and accents she chose have brightened the kitchen so much more than I could ever have imagined. Kelli works with you to achieve a final outcome you will definitely fall in love with! Thank you Kelli for another redesign project that I LOVE!
We used Design Quest to begin the multi-year process of updating our house, not only for our own personal enjoyment, but also to prepare it to be sold in a few years. Kelli was always available via email to answer questions and always arrived promptly to appointments. We all worked well together to come up with design plans for particular rooms that were both aesthetic and functional. All questions and concerns were discussed immediately and solutions found. Kelli clearly loves her job and does an excellent job. We will be continuing to use Design Quest for future projects.
We completed a “mini” kitchen makeover by re-facing our cabinets with new black cabinet doors, however was concerned that it would make our kitchen too dark. Kelli at Design Quest helped us select complimenting colors keeping our concerns and small budget in mind. She actually SAVED us money! We were going to replace our wainscoting backsplash, but instead opted to keep it and lightened it up with a fresh coat of paint. What a difference! Her vision of using natural lighting and pulling colors from adjacent rooms really helped tie everything together and flow from room to room. Professional, down to earth and really pays attention to the clients tastes, I highly recommend Design Quest!
My husband and I were debating whether to remove a wall between our small family and living rooms to create a larger space for family gatherings. We hired Kelly to do a 3-D design to help us envision the area as one large room. From the various views that Kelly created, and her enthusiasm about the project, we decided to remove the wall. We continued working with Kelly to choose furniture colors and layout, flooring, lighting options, wall color, and window treatment ideas. Kelly guided us through that process and really listened to take into consideration our personal needs and tastes. She was extremely attentive and helpful through the entire process. When we first met, I told Kelly that my dream was to have a finished large area where our growing family could gather for the holidays, and we did! Thank you Kelly!
I hired Kelli to do a kitchen makeover and she exceeded all expectations. Thanks to her creativity and attention to my requests, I finally have my dream kitchen. She was professional, enthusiastic, and very responsive to any questions I had. We stayed within budget and it perfectly matched what I wanted. Thank you, Kelli!
I hired Kelli to do a 3-D Design and floor plan for my 1st Floor Addition. Kelli worked well with my contractor and was able to produce the floor plans I needed in a timely manner. The 3-D Designs have been very helpful in communicating out “wants/must haves” to the contractor, and have served as a spring board for other ideas/opportunities with the project. Kelli is very out-going and detail oriented and asked a lot of very good questions throughout the design process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire a designer.
I’ve worked with Design Quest on several projects, providing window treatment fabricating services. The ideas and designs that Kelli has for her clients are fresh and innovative - complimenting the room(s) perfectly. If, for your next project, you would like to work with a professional who clearly loves what she does, do hire Kelli with Design Quest!
Kelli was enthusiastic about our project from the start. She was both personable and professional while being respectful and sensitive to budget and logistics. We appreciated her consulting expertise to move the project forward. She has great vision, great resources and a great sense of style.
Kelli is very knowledgeable and talented at what she does. She is very skilled at helping clients to see their home/space’s potential and makes recommendations that are representative of the client’s preferences, budget, and what has been communicated with her. Kelli recently took my home from dark, cozy, and a bit design cluttered to open and spacious yet still keeping a cozy feel within a limited budget. Before I met with her, I was running in circles with paint samples and could not come to a decision that set well. Who knew certain tones of light gray walls could feel warm at night? How to truly create continuity from room to room? An inspiration rug? Your space will feel and look new but it will never feel like it’s not “you”... unless that is what you are looking for. She is that good! If you are looking for a designer that truly listens to you and inspires you with new ideas - look no further!
We asked Kelli to help us choose a color scheme for remodeling our corporate headquarters. She did a great job at recommending colors and an overall look. She put in a lot of effort to help source suppliers for flooring and furniture too. The office looks great thanks to Kelli. Some finishing touches are still pending due to budget, but we’ll get there. Kelli still checks in on the progress and I know she’s always responsive if we need her. Thank you again Kelli.
