Testimonials

Suzanne & Tony Fern 1

We were thrilled to discover a local home stylist on the far North Coast when it came time to sell our home. Peter from Decorate Your Real Estate at Byron Bay was very helpful, flexible and understanding of our needs. The furniture and styling provided matched our house perfectly and enhanced its appeal to potential buyers. We received very positive feedback from the Real Estate Agent about how well the house was presented for sale and particularly how comfortable and appealing it appeared.
We are very happy to recommend Peter Jones and his home styling service!

"As an owner based in Sydney, wanting the best possible price for my property relied on Peter to coordinate everything related to the staging of my property. He completed this with professional precision and the end result was a sale above the reserve price. I am sure that Peter's staging of the property had a great deal to do with this result."

“Peter quickly established a style approach for our home that emphasised its best features and made the rooms feel larger. He was also able to incorporate some of our furniture into his overall design. I found him engaging, candid and professional and have no doubt his skills contributed to our successful auction”.

“From day one when I contacted Peter from Decorate Your Real Estate, I was confident I had made the right decision to engage his services to furnish and style my unit. Peter was fantastic and very professional. We met at the property to discuss the look we were both hoping to achieve and the end result made me regret selling the unit as it looked so great. From the large furniture pieces to the final touches of cushions, throw rugs, recipe books, paintings and more - my unit was inviting and contemporary. As an owner of property looking to sell I felt it was important the unit was presented in the best possible way to guarantee a sale. I felt the investment in the furniture/styling definitely made my unit more appealing to potential buyers and assisted in securing a sale.
I would definitely recommend Peter's company if you are thinking of selling”.

“Another job well done Peter. In fact I think this one was even better than the first. Very clean, nice looking, I loved the colours and styling throughout the whole property.

"Peter and his Decorate Your Real Estate team styled my investment property prior to going to market. I was very happy with their services and the property presentation they created elevated and enhanced the sales possibilities. I would certainly use their excellent services again. Thanks Peter."

"Hi Peter Just a quick email to thank you for a great job and fantastic service with styling my property for sale. As a real estate agent, I understand and value the importance of the visual impact in marketing. We were selling an empty property and I know that the photos would not have been as effective had we not used your service. In just two weeks, we had a contract at much more than we thought was achievable. The investment in styling and good photography certainly pays off.
I also must comment on your follow up after your initial quote, prompt response, your attention to detail and advice regarding paint colour. Thanks again and please feel free to use my email as a testimonial for your business. "

Dressing our home for the market proved to be a very good move.
As it happened, we had our house on the market – undressed- for a couple of months and did not sell it. After Peter Dressed it, the house sold quickly – to mutual satisfaction all round. Dressing the house certainly enhanced its lovely features. We were extremely happy with the service provided by Peter and his team at Decorate Your Real Estate in Byron Bay.
The furniture and fittings were lovely, light, modern, and the price was right.

Until Decorate Your Real Estate staged our home we had an empty house and only a couple of people interested in viewing it. Afterwards there were people queing to view, multiple offers and a contract within a few weeks which we attribute to the designer creative flair they used to decorate our house that injected personality and turned the plain house into a beautuful home.

"When selling our house we contacted Peter in regards to furnishing our home for a six week marketing campaign.
Peter professional approach was noted in our initial meeting. Peter’s great eye for detail allowed him to select a fantastic combination of furnishing to best present our house. Our house was transformed with modern luxury lounges, beautiful artwork, quality manchester and quirky décor.
We were tremendously thrilled with the fit-out which resulted in the sale of our property within a very short period of time.
We would highly recommended Peter and his services."

"Many thanks for making the house look so good for the last few weeks. I think you have a fine sensibility and presented the house to its optimum. Tasteful, uncluttered. Suggestive of possibilities, without the ornamentation overpowering the innate character of the place. Very impressive."

Neville and Dee

"A quick note to let you know how much your home styling helped to sell our house. Our house was in a prime location to attract a lot of interest, but it didn't have that "WOW factor" or the level of presentation required to get the most the market had to offer at auction. We had a 4 week window of opportunity to generate the interest needed.
Our furniture was nice and of good quality, but didn't present the look we were after, being so close to the water. We also had a number of rooms not being used and hence not furnished.
It was amazing to see how you transformed our Queenslander, into a home, which looked like it belonged in a Home Design Magazine. We couldn't believe our house could look that good!
We are convinced that our house sold at auction and we got more money due to your professional help.
We would certainly recommend your work to others. Thanks again for all that you have done”!"

"SOLD FIRST DAY OF OPEN HOME!
I enlisted the help from Peter and his team to style my 4 bedroom home in preparation for its sale, the styling was absolutely perfect for the home and was exactly what I had envisioned when I first looked into hiring furniture. Peter’s knowledge and experience is shown through his work with each room being finished to the highest of detail with Quality furnishings and products.
My home sold the same day of the first open home (being a country town, this was a HUGE shock) - The furniture definitely had a huge impact on this sale as the new owners fell in love with how the home looked and felt, I strongly believe I would not have had the same reaction had I had empty rooms.
The home also sold for almost 10% more than what it was evaluated at unfurnished only 1 week prior, so Decorate your real estate absolutely added value to my sale.
I couldn’t recommend them more!! "

"I recently utilised the services of decorateyourrealestate.com.au to style my property during the sales and auction campaign. I was extremely pleased with the timeliness and professionalism of the service provided by Peter and his team. When researching real estate styling companies, decorateyourrealestate.com.au was extremely price competitive, and previous results spoke for themselves. The furniture, artwork, accessories and styling provided by the team SOLD my property. My family members didn't even recognise it when we all saw it on auction day. During the sales campaign, potential purchasers provided excellent feedback to the agent on the presentation of the property. I have no doubt that the styling of the property by decorateyourrealestate.com.au SOLD my property on auction day, after only a 4 week marketing campaign. I would highly recommend Peter to help in styling your property. Thanks again! "

Richard and Margaret Arnot

".we were most impressed by the almost instantaneous result on the successful sale of our Coorabell property, with an offer to purchase, which we have accepted, less than 24 hours after you and your stylist furnished our house. The house had been on the market, unfurnished, for over three months with only one offer which was subsequently withdrawn, and the 'wow' effect of your furnishings was dramatic! We will certainly be talking to you again when we sell our next house.

Thanks again"

The Young Family, Burleigh Heads

"We recently contracted Decorate Your Real Estate to help us style our family’s 26 year old home for auction. Peter offered great suggestions to bring it more up to date without it looking too “done”. We took his advice on removing dated furniture and to leave a few selected items. Peter and his team arrived on time and the home was furnished and styled as promised, within a day. During the marketing period, we received many positive comments from prospective buyers about the home looking very well presented and ‘just like the photos’. We achieved a sale only days after the auction. The investment made in having the home styled was certainly worthwhile. We would recommend the services of Decorate Your Real Estate to others looking to maximise the sales potential of their property."

Terry and Jenny Nixon

"We initially approached Peter with the intention of buying some furniture for an apartment that we had purchased in Fletcher Street Byron Bay. It was at this point that we realised that Peter also offered furnishing and decorating services for properties prior to sale. Peter convinced us to replace the carpets, tiles and the kitchen using his choice of trade contacts, colours, fittings and furniture, and at the same time complying with fairly tight budget settings. In our view he has been able to achieve outstanding results. His before and after photos speak for themselves. We believe Peter intends to focus more on this type of work and are delighted to be given this opportunity to endorse and promote his work."

"I contacted Peter to inquire about putting his furniture into our home on Mount Tamborine, which we were listing to sell. It had been rented and was looking a little tired, he was there the week after, the house looked wonderful and we sold at auction. I would recommend Decorate your Real Estate to anyone who was wanting a quick and easier sale of their property. Thanks once again Peter you did a fabulous job."

"Absolutely Outstanding” ....... Peter provided and staged the most beautiful furniture and did so on time and without any stress. The property sold just after auction, this I can definitely say was made so much easier by the superior presentation of the property. We achieved a great result for the vendor and the small investment in the staging was most definitely worthwhile."

"Our Vendor was interstate and wanted their property to be presented in a fresh and modern manner. The furnishings that were chosen were new, clean and stylish. The added accessories gave a personal touch bringing in colour and flair without being too busy or cluttered. The overall look was very appealling and enhanced the features of the home."

"I had listed an amazing new property and needed to get it styled asap in time for photos and the auction campaign. A lot of the people i was able to track down gave me the run around, tried to tell me what furniture to use and quote on the job without even looking at the property. Peter was able to meet right away and work within our deadlines with furniture that was ideal to fit the style of the home. The furniture definitely helped sell the property for an outstanding price. He would be the first person i would call in the future.""

G. Baker

" At some time I noted the statistics. "Average time to sell a house in Byron Bay currently 6 months". I also knew that houses displayed on the internet usually showed outside views only. Inside photos would simply display empty rooms- boxes. I engaged "Decorate Your Real Estate" to style two rooms which were professionally and tastefully furnished . A good selection of furniture, floors rugs and pictures etc presented an aesthetically pleasing result. This enabled me to photograph the rooms, and post them on the internet which now revealed a warm home - not just a house. Buyer interest was now established and my property sold within three months. Thoroughly Recommended"

"We contracted Decorate Your Real Estate to style our property and were very impressed with the results. Compared to other quotes we received for our home styling Peter came up with the best value for us taking into considerations all the added furnishing included.
Our property sold within 8 days- what more could we ask for ? I would certainly recommend Decorate Your Real Estate as they offer an excellent, professional service which is well worth the investment. "

"I would just like to thank Peter for the great work he did in styling my Lennox Head house for sale. He was prompt in arriving for our initial consultation, he made positive suggestions and he made sure that the property was styled to my liking as well as what would work for sale purposes. The furniture was also removed quickly and painlessly. I would never have been able to dress the property in such an effortless way on my own. The property sold very quickly while the furniture was still in the property. I can honestly say that the investment was worth it and made the property look amazing. I especially loved the mirror in the main living room. Thank you, Peter for such a great effort. I will certainly be using your services again. "

Thanks Decorate Your Real Estate.
" Following almost 2 months on the market, trying to sell the house ourselves, we were at the crossroads. Do we reduce the asking price by $10k+, get an Agent and pay exceedingly high commission for very little work or invest more money into our investment property and have it professionally styled by Decorate Your Real Estate? Thankfully we decided on Decorate Your Real Estate. The result. We exceeded our asking price by $10k within 2 days of the installations by Decorate Your Real Estate. No discount on the asking price. No Agents fees. Immediate results. Additionally, we noticed the average time potential purchasers were spending in the home increased from 5mins to 30mins. Decorate Your Real Estate works. We will never sell another house again without professionally presenting to the market. Thanks for your professional service and down to earth attitude. "
