TESTIMONIALS

What others have to say
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.

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

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 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 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.

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

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.

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
