What Our Clients are Saying...

 

 

Jackie was incredibly helpful. When we moved to another city, we didn't have time to deal with new paint and carpet ourselves before listing. Jackie stepped in, chose the colours, coordinated the contractors, and then staged the house with furniture for photos and showings. It all paid off with a showing and an offer the very first day the home was listed! Jackie was incredibly helpful and worked with our schedule and budget. Thank you Jackie!

Best, Mike
Designing Spacez completely transformed my home. I can't say enough about Janet and Jackie - they helped guide me through every step of the design and interior decorating process. They were positive and enthusiastic throughout the whole project and extremely easy to work. These women have an incredible eye for fashion and style, and patiently sourced the furnishings needed to complete the renovation product. The final touch was surprising me by having everything delivered and set up when I arrived home at the end of my workday!

Phil Williamson
I am really happy with how it turned out. Everything looks so good that I was almost questioning my decision to sell. I love what you ladies did in the bonus room; it looks fantastic and all the small things really help pull it together.

Chris
Designing Spacez did a fabulous job making my house ready for showing. In fact it was so good, I reconsidered moving out. The service was excellent and I'm sure their style helped my place get an offer in under 24 hrs.

Ben
Designing Spacez staged our home for sale and it was fantastic. The response to the staging was very well received and contributed to a fast sale of our home.

Tim
What a transformation!!! We hired Designing Spacez to stage our home to sell. We had recently updated our kitchen and bathroom, and Jackie and Janet did an amazing job of highlighting the upgrades and other features. They used our own furniture where possible and incorporated fantastic pieces and accessories that took our house from ordinary to extraordinary. Our house sold within one day of being on the market! We loved their work so much we're going to hire them to help us decorate our new home.

Carolyn Beaton
I want to thank you, Designing Spacez team, very much for transforming my home from comfy and cozy into gorgeous and elegant. Your efforts positioned my home to stand apart from others on the market in our area, resulting in two offers and an expedited sale one week later.

I've learned so much from this experience, which will come into play when furnishing and decorating my new home in Texas.

It was delightful to meet you all and I would take great pleasure in recommending you to everyone I know whether they are selling or re-decorating.

Sincerely, Vidya K. Ganness
After seeing the impressive job that Designing Spacez did in "staging" a property near my home, I decided to give them a call - and I'm glad I did! Janet and Jackie did an amazing job adding the final decorating touches to my newly built home. When it came to choosing vases, draperies, area rugs, and artwork for the walls, they really managed to pull everything together to make my home beautiful and comfortable, while still managing to work within my budget.

They have a real knack for finding the perfect piece to complete a room. I am thrilled with the end result, and I've received many compliments on my home. I would definitely recommend Designing Spacez to anyone who is planning to renovate, decorate or stage a home. Thanks, Janet and Jackie!

Moira Jensen
We contacted Designing Spacez after seeing a few of their signs up in our neighbourhood Tuscany. We love our location and did not want to move, but after 11 years, it was time for an update in our kitchen. We met Janet and Mike armed with a wish list of some of the other things we were thinking about changing. They patiently consulted with us and then gave as an itemized price break down. After visiting a few of their recently finished kitchens, we knew what we wanted to have done.

Our main level has a much better flow now with the new hardwood that Mike installed and we have a lot more cabinets and counter space. In the past 11 years we thought we had seen every granite in the marketplace and we just weren't wowed, but Janet certainly knows where to take you shopping!

It's like having a whole new main floor!
Thanks Janet and Mike and all of your team for doing an amazing job!

Gaylene and Louis
I am confident Designing Spacez was why our previous apartment sold in record time, it was well worth the price. Now we've hired them a second time to help sell our home and the place looks fantastic.

Chris Clark
My husband and I were very pleased with the staging job which Designing Spacez did in our condo. The paint and rug were beautiful and we have had many positive comments about the furniture and decorating. Janet Voth and her team did a great job of navigating through unexpected circumstances and going the extra mile for us in a positive way.

Frank and Cheryl Bolton
Had the opportunity to work with Janet & Mike for both a home consult and a full kitchen Reno. TOTALLY recommend this company. Creative, smart, wonderful Reno work. No Hassle Reno's - Really!

Kathy & Walter
I absolutely loved the changes in my home. I couldn't believe what a difference they made in such a short amount of time. Janet and Jackie re-arranged my furniture and then told me exactly what to buy for the finishing touches. It costed a lot less than I thought and wish I had done it sooner.

Theresa Kehoe
When it became time to renovate my kitchen & main bathroom, I was very fortunate to find the Designing Spacez team. Janet's artistic instincts and Jackie's organizational abilities helped to design exactly the sort of rooms that I had envisioned. Mike and Chris are excellent gentlemen who were a pleasure to have working in my home, quietly paying attention to the smallest details. Everyone, including the sub-trades, did their best to keep me informed as to their timing, they came when they said they would, and cleaned up after themselves. Any future renovations I make will certainly be done by Janet & Mike Voth and their Designing Spacez team.

S. Hill, Calgary
You and your team did an excellent job coordinating numerous and varied renovations (replacing floor, full house painting, and various touch-ups) in preparation of staging of our home. You and the team also did a fantastic job staging the property - the pictures and how the home showed were amazing and will make a huge difference in the sale of the home. We would use your services again and would not hesitate recommending you to our friends and family.

Mike and Julia P.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for the excellent and very professional job that you did for us in staging our condo for selling. We were very pleased with the way in which you furnished and decorated the apartment and the quality and condition of the furniture and accessories used. Our realtor passed on many favorable comments about how fresh and appealing the apartment looked.

Maura and Barry Swan
"Our house had been on the market for 75 days and the listing expired without even one offer. Our new realtor suggested we try staging, and we couldn't believe what a difference it made! Within one week of being staged by Designing Spacez, we had an offer and sold our house. We strongly recommend staging to anyone trying to sell, because it is important that your house appeals to as many buyers as possible, and Designing Spacez knows how to make this happen. It was not too obvious that our house was staged, either, so we could still be comfortable in it when it wasn't being shown. Thanks for a job well done, and we look forward to using your services when setting up our new home next month!"

- Nancy Nuessler
It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Designing Spacez. I met Janet Voth at a "Home Show" early in 2009. She was a delightful and cheerful Lady to talk to and I immediately was at ease discussing 'future needs' in staging of my residence For Sale. I later (about 6 weeks) contracted Designing Spacez and Janet Voth to discuss staging of my residence. Janet and her assistant Jackie Bulbeck came to my residence, we chatted and laughed, and then these two Ladies set about analyzing my residence. After a room by room investigation, they gave me a written report detailing room by room ... read the full testimonial here.
I hired Designing Spacez to do a staging consult for my clients. My clients stated they were very professional throughout the consult. The advice that was given was useful and very practical. My clients and I both appreciated the fact that they would not have to spend a whole bunch of money to get their house ready. Suggestions were offered to stage with things that they already owned, or that they could buy inexpensively. They also had the options of short term rentals at very reasonable rates through designing spacez. After the consult, myself and my clients received a market ready check list so they could get to work right away. It was so helpful for them to have a check list to know what needed to be done. They got to work and "staged" their home and the end result was beautiful. The house sold in 2 days for 99% of list price.

Just a quick note to thank you very much for the great work you and your company did for me on my listing on Sierra Morna Blvd SW. When I originally listed the home, I didn't hold out much hope for a sale on it. It was poorly decorated and in tough shape. The first few showings were not positive. That's when I called in the experts, Designing Spacez. You and your team were prompt and within 3 days we had a total proposal from you for the home and then when the owners accepted it, you were very quickly and professionally in and out. My clients enjoyed your professionalism and the enthusiasm and knowledge of both yourself and Jackie .... Read the full testimonial here.

We hired Designing Spacez to do a surprise ReDesign on my 8 year old daughters' bedroom. The result was more than we could have expected. It was like walking into a Show home. My daughter was thrilled and now she keeps it so clean! Janet and her team were great! During the initial consultation, I let her know my budget, color preferences and storage issues. I didn't have to do a thing - they even did all the shopping for us. I will definitely have Janet and her team back for another room in my house. Thank you so much.

- Jackie & Family
We met Mike and Janet at a home show while planning renovations. We talked with them and got a good feeling about their approach. We firmed up the work to be done and scheduled the workers to come in. A couple of weeks later the work was completed and we were very impressed. We have had many glowing comments about the professional results. We heartily recommend Designing Spacez. They are fluent in both the design and trades aspects and you will be enthused with the new look of your home.

- Simone & Richard
We were immediately impressed with [Janet's] friendly, vibrant, energetic personality... She effectively determined our personalities and tastes and while always taking them into account pushed us comfortably in different directions with a myriad of ideas.

What was pleasantly obvious to us was that her goal was not to spend as much of our money as she possibly could. She was able to identify the range of money we wanted to spend on different areas and gave us ideas to fit the budget...with absolutely no pressure to spend more.

Mike was equally as friendly and approachable. Mike put in hardwood floor, kitchen cabinets, and a back splash for us and coordinated the staining of the floors and the removal and re-installation of the granite in our kitchen. All the work he did was very well done and despite some minor delays that were not his doing he made every effort to complete the work as efficiently as possible.

Overall, a pleasurable experience working with Mike and Janet!!

- J& D Wilson
Our family was impressed with the transformation of the home after the staging. The changes gave the house a fresh, new look. We appreciated the attention to detail - arranging of the accent pieces, shelves arranged with our books, repositioning of the art, ornamental flowers in vase rearranged, and the artful towel displays. The changes highlighted the homes' strengths - the openness of the floor plan and the view. We now feel very comfortable about showing our home. Thank you for your help

Shirley & Family
I was fortunate to have my home ReDesigned by this talented team. I had the living room, family room & dining room Redesigned into a more harmonious and balanced space that I am absolutely thrilled with. HGTV is having a room makeover contest. I am sending in pictures of before and after of the living room and giving the credit to this amazing crew. Thank you and Great work!

Holly H.
I was so excited when Janet and her team arrived that morning, because I knew that they would find a perfect solution to the disarray I felt I was living in. (Moving from a much larger home into a smaller one) When the time came for the big 'reveal', I had a sense of wellness to see my house in order and everything so beautifully arranged. The living room was put together in a way that I would never have thought. There all my pictures hung in beautiful groupings and attractive vignettes were created. I can now see the few changes I need to make down the road, thanks to the suggestions made by Janet and her ReDesign team. But right now, I love my 'new' home! Thanks again, Janet!

Joanne & Family
My husband and I were so impressed by the innovative and creative ways that the furniture and art in our home was arranged. Janet and her team came up with solutions that we would never have dreamed of! All the rooms looked airy and relaxing. The furniture was beautifully arranged to accent our mountain view. All the art and accent pieces were thoughtfully placed, especially on our numerous built-in bookshelves. The silk flower arrangements were amazing, and I had no idea that a bunch of sticks could look so decorative! Our children were also very happy with their rooms. We were thrilled with the work completed by Designing Spacez. I was also very pleased with their professionalism. Everything was handled with care and they left the house spotless. All items that they couldn't use were placed carefully in the designated areas. Janet shopped for some items that I couldn't find and kept within our budget. We never felt pressured to buy things we didn't want. I have already recommended Janet to my sister.

Linda and Ken
This fall I had been working with a client who had done a renovation and was looking to sell. He had done a great job, but knowing how much value a great stager can bring I suggested we call Designing Spacez to add the final touches. When they were done we had ourselves a showhome, and a firm sale very close to asking price, and only a few weeks later. I wouldn't Hesitate to stage a home again, and when I do I'll be calling Designing Spacez; Thanks Girls!

I wanted to take a moment to say how much I appreciate the hard work the team over at Designing Spacez put in for two of my recent listings. They had the homes completely transformed in no time, and my clients where amazed with the change they created in their homes. Both the properties I had them stage sold in a matter of weeks! I will certainly use Designing Spacez again.

Graeme McInnis with MaxWell Westview Realty
Great job on the kitchen bay window area - looks so much better! Great selections! I really like the lamps, the vase and branches, the shower curtain thingies, and the entrance rug. Wow, you really have an eye for that stuff - never fails to impress me!

Phil
Janet & Jackie met with us and walked through the house. When the day came to do the work, we were kicked out for the day and came back to view the rooms later in the day. When we walked back into our home and saw the changes to the front room we both smiled. What a difference they made by using a couple of our items and adding things like drapes. The best surprise came when we went into our bedroom and saw how they moved things around and picked up an accessory or two! My wife and I were totally blown away!!! My wife still smiles when she goes into our bedroom!! We felt that they made our home more of home with there changes. Great Work!!!

David and Elizabeth
I was so impressed with the work that Janet and Jackie did on my latest listing, I had to write this testimonial. What I appreciated the most perhaps was both of their positive attitudes and professionalism. They blew me and my clients away with their knowledge, creativity, and they surpassed my every expectation. I would suggest the super team at Designing Spacez to anyone who want to increase the value of a property before selling. Thanks ladies, for everything.

Your tips and recommendations for organization, furniture placement, and general layout created a space that looked more inviting and livable, even to my untrained eye. I believe the staging process was a key factor in the very fast sale of my townhouse. Not only did it sell quickly, but it sold for the price I was looking for, even when other comparable units were taking longer to sell and closing for less. The consultation with you was fast but thorough; and the changes, and reasons behind those recommendations, were explained clearly. I would recommend using your consultation and setup services to any of my friends and family looking to sell or revitalize their home.

Dev Sharma
After meeting with a few designers, Designing Spacez was our no-brainer pick. Janet had a much better grasp of what our needs and budget were and was able to make everything we wanted happen while staying under budget. After a quick meeting, Janet understood exactly what I wanted, what my style was and was able to suggest pieces that worked perfectly that I would have never found on my own.

Janet and Jackie made the whole process seamless. They coordinated all deliveries and set everything up in a timely and efficient manner. I was able to move right into my new home without any work. Their vast experience was apparent at every stage of the process. I would highly recommend engaging Designing Spacez.

Hussein Allidina
I confess that I had another referral for an interior designer and met with her a few weeks prior to meeting you, which is why I had a rough game plan.

Your service and effectiveness far exceeded hers, although I'm glad I met with her first, as it prepared me for meeting with you. Your simple appreciation of my request to not blow the bank was a huge win for you, and I just plain old like you guys. :-)

Thank you again for your great service. I'm so very glad I met you both.
