Jacqui & Stuart Wicken

31 Rogers Road – SOLD baby!
Thanks for your work Jodie, it really did contribute to a successful sale and I will definitely be recommending you in the future.

Thanks again. Ronnie

I first came across Jodie Robertson when I read the article in NZ House and Garden, and thought WOW! One very talented lady! Then I had the opportunity to recruit Jodie to assist with the styling of our 1960s home that was seriously in need of a refurbish; however we didn’t want to employ architects, and to have to deal with councils and consents. Jodie has an enormous network of tradesmen and consultants, who she calls on with confidence, knowing that her reputation as an honest and upfront operator stands her in very good stead with all those that she deals with. She was able to organise a much respected builder, and as the project developed, recommended other contractors that were required. All of them spoke very favourably of Jodie, and all enjoyed working alongside her.

Jodie has an amazing “eye” for colour and design; and in a flash is able to visualise and create. Our home has been transformed into an up to date residence, but still maintains the comfort of a home. Throughout the whole process, Jodie was always available to advise and direct, and calmly withstood the barrage of questions and changes that ensued. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she always had a solution to any problem.

Superwoman? Yes! In her field Jodie is a one of. She is direct and honest, tells it like it is, and plays no games. She is extremely talented, both as a designer and stylist, and a photographer. She goes out of her way to source the “right” option, and can instantly suggest alternatives if necessary.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Jodie to any potential clients. She is a joy to work with, always maintains a great sense of humour, and goes out of her way to ensure that the project is successfully completed. Good luck!

Working in one of the Melbourne’s leading real estate agencies, I have worked many properties with Jodie. Her experties, sense of style and total commitment to get the best out of any properties, I am sure has helped vendors maximise their sale price.

I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Jodie is great! I was feeling lost on how to style my new build home. She came in with some great curtains, rugs and cushions to turn our house from a house to a home. She is decisive, professional and on the ball. She has an excellent eye for design and detail. Give her a call today!

Kate Woodward

Jodie was fantastic to work with.

She was very organised and enthusiastic and did an amazing job turning a tired rental property into a first home buyers delight.

We have used her twice too completely furnish two houses in order to sell them and both times have received very positive feedback from both the real estate agents and potential buyers.

We would absolutely recommend using Jodie, she has a fantastic eye for furnishings, room structure and details.

Thank you Jodie.

Maryanne Robinson

It was prompt, efficient with good quality furniture. the end result was very pleasing.

Not Knowing that googling for a photographer to take photos of our Home about to be sold was going to open the door to much much more for us personally and in our business, from that day 6 years ago Jodie Mamie & Co became an integral part in our business. Jodie has the ability to tune into you personally and your style immediately, and also push your boundaries in the subtlest of ways with stunning results, we were sold on Jodie. We called on Jodie to stage our showhome, I had complete trust in her judgement and gave her free rain, not to be disappointed she nailed it, not stock standard, interesting and quirky, we loved it. It goes without saying Jodie stages all our Spec Homes also, and there’s more, her talent and creativity with home furnishings, she has an amazing selection of hand picked fabric samples in her Studio to curtain and soft furnish your home, we introduce all our clients to Jodie , Mamie & Co and every time it’s a success story, she is confident in what she is providing and takes the stress out of choosing from the vast selection by narrowing down the selection to suit you, she instantly gains the trust of our clients and delivers. We have just completed our own home so Jodie to the rescue again, I was wanting different and only had to mention an idea and Jodie would say, I have just the thing for you, and she did, be it Wallpaper, curtains, custom made furniture, rugs and interior decor, we are very happy with everything. If you want a creative, trustworthy, inspiring interior designer, choose Jodie, Mamie & Co, you wont be disappointed.

Helen Bond

Perfect!

Jill & Peter Lawry

Great!! You have the best selection of fabrics and knowledge of your products.
Advice on furniture etc was brilliant.

Charlie & Debbie Johnson

A very satisfactory experience, with attention to my partner of not rushing him but showing him alternatives and leaving it with him to make decisions in a good time frame without pressure…..

An excellent understanding of our partnership relationship so things will flow as we make decisions of refurbishment of his apartment for us both.

Chris Tucker

Friendly, very professional and a quality product

Derek Pomana

Very open and honest to work with. Thanks for all your help.

Hayden Senior

Jodie is knowledgeable and confident in her work. This enabled me to trust her with decisions and let her guide me to the best outcome.

Gina Tichborne

Jodi is amazing down to earth and gives great honest feedback

Sam Day

Great experience.

Jodie was willing to work with me to achieve the look I was seeking for our new home during its construction. She was keen to offer suggestions/variations on how to best achieve this.

I felt she worked within my budget without compromising the finished look.
She treated the house as a whole so that the effect flowed throughout the entire house with subtle variations from room to room, always being mindful of our existing furnishings.

We are thrilled with the completed house.

The house lot of drapes are beautifully finished and compliment the decor perfectly.

Jodie’s service was prompt and professional.

I would have no hesitation in working with her again.

Gaye Douglas

Always willing to understand what the clients individual needs , timeframes and budget expectations are. Also fun and nice to work with . Xx

Jason & Emily Britten

Jodie is a natural talent with a good eye for balance, colour and of course design. My designer of choice.

Leah Bradley

It is with great pleasure that we write this testimonial for Jodie Roberston. Jodie is an exceptional interior designer who is passionate, knowledgeable and professional with a meticulous attention to detail. We love Jodie because she is direct and honest, tells it like it is with no nonsense, and always has a sense of humour. This was a key trade needed to work with Francky.

Our relationship began over 2 years ago, after we decided St Georges need a clear direction for its transformation and expertise was required.

By taking the time to understand our visions, goals and especially Francky’s expectations. Jodie was able to incorporate and transform the spaces and develop a vision for the property. This job is a labour of love, and dedication as the transformation was always going to be a step by step process not an overnight transformation. Jodie fully understood this, and has stood by our side the whole way. Jodie is hands on, always there to help and goes out of her way to insure every step of the project is successfully completed. Even to the point of sweeping the floors, cleaning the bathrooms and just about anything we needed to get ready for opening after our first major renovations.

St Georges is still ongoing, but the transformation to date is implacable. We know have a sense of warmth, ambience, colour, style and a sense of welcoming. We continue to get high praise for Jodie’s work from clients and guests who visit especially our regularly customers who have seen the transformation over the past 2 years. Several times a day we get comments on the lounge area, as people fall in love with the couch and luxurious cushions, now the acoustic panels with their vibrancy and lusciousness allure people into the dining room.

We had a 3 year goal, to get a review in Cuisine Magazine. This was achieved in December 2014, within 2 years. Published in March 2015 issue. We know without the transform of St Georges without Jodie, this would not have been achieved. We may only be part way through our journey of transformation, but we know that Jodie is the right person for our journey and an asset to our business.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Jodie to any potential clients. Jodie is an asset to any company or client looking for an Interior Designer. We are happy to discuss in further detail, or answer any questions regarding Jodie and our referral. Please contact us on 06 877 5356

Jodie helped us prepare our much loved family home for sale with enthusiasm, practicality and professionalism.

It was so useful to have an objective viewpoint and a solution focused approach, it made the process a lot easier.

We were very happy with the result and and I recommend Jodie to anyone who wants their home to look the best for the market.

Liz Remmerswaal

We moved into a new home a year ago. Each day I went home and walk into my house it bothered me on how I had laid my whole house out but could never think of a better way to do it! Plus on top of all that it was very cluttered and disorganised.

Jodie came from Hawkes Bay to Gisborne for 3 days and completely re-organized my house. I couldn’t believe how the most simple changes made such a huge different in how my house looked, even our small laundry looked twice the size once Jodie had finished with it.

After the initial clean up we then went through colours for the lounge/ kitchen, I purchased 3 lovely pieces of furniture for the lounge and set my bedroom with a headboard and fantastic new bedding and even new towels to go in my very empty linen cupboard!!

I’m a busy director of a company and time is paramount therefore I never have the time to sort out my home life which Jodie did superbly.

A big thanks and I certainly can recommend Jodie for any makeover.

Yours faithfully, Fran Gibson

After many years of wasting my hard earned $ on trying to create that designer look myself, I sought advice and Jodie came to my rescue. She quickly transformed many spaces in our home from a potential disaster into something chic and sophisticated all while working within my budget. I now feel confident knowing that the purchases i make are not only fail proof; but can be used in various ways in multiple rooms. Jodie goes above and beyond supplying interiors. She willingly helped us get into our new property, helping us cast a vision before purchasing, pointing out how we could change rooms quickly and affordably in ways I would have never thought about. Thank you Jodie for helping us make our house a home, for your ongoing advice and always going the extra mile to serve. We really appreciate you!!

Jodie has staged homes for my clients for a number of years now and every time has exceeded expectations. She doesn’t stage any home the same but matches the correct style of staging to showcase the home in its best light. Jodie is a true professional and talent. She has provided and installed the curtains throughout our own home and again we are so happy with the product and service she provides. “Exceptional”

Caleb Robinson

We met Jodie while building our new home 3 years ago. She helped us through colours, wallpapers & overall themes. She also recommended & supplied all our curtains including hanging. We continue to recommend her to friends & still go to her for advice. Her shop is great to visit; a treasure trove of wonderful interior design ideas & beautiful fabrics. We have also used her for staging 2 homes; she deftly transforms rooms & gives them great “sell appeal”. Jodie is always up to speed on the latest trends & always has great ideas! Plus a great sense of humour!

Jodie has been very helpful with her guidance. the only negative part of the experience is that we never know when she will be available!

Bruce Senior

Great

Sally Ward

Sam Day

Professional and friendly.

Ying Foon

Great, really love our product (Blinds and Curtains). The service was great no complaints 🙂

Susan & Anton Destounis

We purchased Jodies old house, it was my dream home, it was a big home that needed plenty of “bigger” furniture. Shortly after I moved in Jodie took me up to Auckland and helped me source the items I wanted. We had quite different styles but I felt Jodie always listened to what I wanted my house‘s vibe to be and she would say “I know just the place” and off we went. I trust Jodie and she will always be an inspiration to me.

Laura Mcintyre

I asked Jodie to view and quote on curtains for our property, she was very good at offering different options that would work best. We also viewed her interior design store and purchased rugs and had bespoke cushions made.

The installation service and quality were brilliant and will definitely be using Jodie again.

Sophie Shield

Jodie was amazing.She knew how much I loved the fabric and went out of her way to make sure she could source it for me. There was a problem with it and she persisted until it was perfect. Thrilled with the finished result. Thank you so much Jodie.

Janna Broad

We recently purchased a house in Napier which had everything we wanted but which desperately needed refurbishing. Having recently moved to Hawkes Bay we were renting at the time, and so were in the ideal position of being able to stay in our rental for an extra month so that we could completely renovate our new home before moving in. The downside was that this gave us only 4 weeks to choose paint colours, order new curtains and floor tiles – it was a lot of pressure and decisions to make quickly. That was where Jodie came in. She was absolutely fantastic and made it all so much easier and less stressful than it would have been. We had the curtains and roman blinds chosen and ordered in 2 days, which meant that they were ready to be hung before we moved in. And we get so many compliments on how great they look. We are so thrilled with how it has all come together and can’t thank Jodie enough for all her help!

Cheers, Miriam

Absolutely fantastic photos; a real Rolls Royce camera roll. Though getting rather fraught towards the end; your hard work and attention to detail; has made our week of scrubbing dawn till dusk, truly worthwhile. Be proud, be very proud.

Our profuse thanks to you and your family team.

Sue

I would thoroughly recommend using Jodie to stage your home for sale.

Jodie knew exactly what to do in order to maximize the house’s potential. With clever use of designer furniture, gorgeous linen, mirrors, and strategic paintings and lighting she transformed our tired and tatty rental property to a first home buyers dream.

Under her guidance and with the use of her contacts our house was spotless and immaculate. Jodie also did all the marketing photos which made our house look amazing and inviting.

Within 3 days of our house being for sale we had an offer on the table. At the time the market was very flat, however we managed to get an offer that far exceeded our expectations.

We feel this was all due to engaging Jodie to stage the house for market. Jodie was great to work with, very positive and upbeat, she did an amazing job on our rental property. I would absolutely recommend using Jodie to anyone wanting to achieve top dollar in a short time frame.

I engaged Jodie when putting my house on the market. Jodie arranged for furniture staging the results were outstanding. She also helped with selecting an agent and organising an initial open home AND taking the photos. This type of service was invaluable to me as it was a one stop shop. Jodie knows her stuff, is committed to helping you get your home ready for selling and she is a delightful person. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Vanessa Pye

Jodie has lots of great enthusiasm and ideas , she try’s so hard to please but has a very busy life / work pattern

Jacqui & Stuart Wicken

We have had numerous houses on the market in the past years. It was a constant battle to have your ‘lived in’ home presented to a high standard at (very often) short notice. This time we decided to vacate our home before marketing and it was the best decision ever.
Jodie had ‘staged’ the apartment we purchased and we loved her styling, so it was a natural choice to have her stage our home for the market.
While it was quite different to how we had styled our home for us it was done beautifully and a successful sale followed.

Kathy & John Hands

The whole experience was fun I had plenty of choices but good direction from Jody too and I feel like I left after making a new friend

Bronwyn Butler

Very positive, you could not have been more helpful and accomodating.

Don & Vikki Hamilton

Jodie takes going to the extra mile to the next level.
