"Just wanted to let you know that our house is under contract!!! Yeah! No doubt it was with your help. Every showing's feedback came back with compliments on the show-ability and/or decoration of the house. Some were downright gushing. So hats off to you!"
-Jami Slater, Homeowner
"We are sooo happy that the house is under contract! Apparently it's the only one in Indian Peaks to go under contract in several months! Almost all agents said that the house was beautifully staged, so we couldn't be happier with your work!"
-Jen Gray, Homeowner
"We are convinced that your service helped this sale."
-Ralph Noistering and Catherine Wynne, Homeowners
"Just wanted to share the good news....we are under contract on Concord Drive! Thanks for your great help! The feedback I received on the staging was all very positive as well, so thanks!"
"Thanks again Helly for all your hard work, and your flexibility. I'm looking forward to working with you again."
-Cheryl Firby, broker/owner, Alpine Realty
"Hi...I have not been able to see it as yet in the flesh, but Adrienne sent me pictures and I thought it looked fabulous. In fact, we already have an offer, and a pending one too...amazing! We will have to see if it goes through or not, but not bad for 2 days on the MLS! Thank you Helly...clearly made a huge difference. You're a star!"
-Dana Wood, homeowner
"Perhaps it is better just to tell you that while working with you on preparing our house for sale, you made trying, stressful situations easier. You are up on the latest "fashions" for the home - colors, fabrics, textures, all those things that home buyers are looking for. You guided us in the right direction in choices for carpet and paint. Even though you didn't choose the paint color, you guided us to the right choices to complement the paint in other ways. When the house was staged, you made it look fabulous! Every single showing of the home to prospective buyers came back with "the home shows very well." It was all the little touches, color, and textures, that you brought to the home that made it so much better than we could do by ourselves.
To top it all off, the house sold in less than 5 weeks after we started showing it. I have no doubt that in the market that currently exists, all the hard work we put into the house - paint, carpet, granite counters, and more - and your gentle guiding hand and gorgeous staging made all the difference in selling a house in a relatively short time. There is no doubt at all. Thank you, Helly. so very much. There, now you know - we finished negotiations and signed contracts on the home on Tuesday, October 23rd. If I remember correctly, we started showing the home around September 19th. So, in this market, and with all the doom and gloom in the media, I know, without a doubt, that your staging and guidance made all the difference."
-Carolyn Golowka, homeowner
"Helly at Design Matters Inc. has been instrumental on the quick and successful marketing of my listings. Her professionalism and ability to maximize the first impression and appearance of a home is excellent. My listings are on average selling in half the time of comparable homes for sale. Additionally, by presenting the home in a nicely staged manner I am receiving better initial offers!. Thank You!! "
- Erik Boye, Re/Max Alliance Boulder, Realtor
"The first showing after Staging by Helly and Design Matters, Inc. got an offer!"
- Jill Midgley, Staufer Team Real Estate, Realtor
“Helly's ideas were great...she provided me options to choose from, but not so many I felt overwhelmed. Our relationship was very synergistic and she was always very passionate about the new designs and colors.
She worked around my schedule and more important my budget. I wanted to throw a house warming and she not only had everything ready on time but provided flower arrangements and wine too!”
- Rob Aghazarian, Homeowner
“I have worked with Helly on kitchen remodel projects. She is into the details that make a kitchen come together. As a designer, she comes to the job without an ego and is open to ideas that might help the project.”
- Gary Mancuso, General Contractor/Manager, Energy Concepts Inc.
"I've used Helly Duncan of Design Matters for several projects. The most recent being a full kitchen remodel. In addition to the kitchen remodel, I've used Helly for color selection, selection/purchase of blinds and custom made draperies, as well as selection/purchase of carpet. Helly does all the leg work per my specifications and brings several options to the table, so it makes it easy to choose and saves me time. Helly responds to everything in a timely manner, keeping up with the venders to make sure things happen how they should and when they should. Helly is professional, knowledgeable, affordable, and a great option for the designed challenged like me. I will use Design Matters again."
- Christine J. Stecker, Homeowner
“Helly was such a great help in finding the right materials and colors for my interior renovation. She provided the perfect balance of giving her guidance and taking my input. She also did all the project management – saving me lots of time and making sure the work got done right, on time and on budget.”
- Jill Farnham, Homeowner
“Helly was a superb stager/interior designer for us. She helped us a great deal when we decided to sell our home. She helped us enhance the features of our home and help a potential buyer focus on the qualities. In our neighborhood we noticed some houses on the market for longer than we were hoping to wait. In only a week and a half, we received a very good offer and sold our home. We believe that Helly and her staging services were a big part of the successful outcome. She assisted with every room in the house and was efficient, creative, and professional. We would certainly use her services in the future and highly recommend Helly to anyone looking to sell their home and get top dollar.”
- Greg and Shana LeNeveu, Homeowners
“Helly Duncan was referred to me by my Realtor and she did an outstanding job in helping me to Stage my home in preparation to putting it on the market. Helly was extremely professional and courteous. She not only had many wonderful ideas but she presented them in a very sensitive and thoughtful way. She is not only excellent at her job but she is a good listener and is willing to work with you in a way that is most beneficial. I believe that it was due in no small part to her efforts that four days after our house went on the market we received two over full price offers. I am happy to recommend Helly Duncan as a person very well qualified to Stage your home.”
