my daughter likes our “new” home better than the ‘old’ one

Before working with Alice to renovate and design our home, I was overwhelmed by the number of projects that we wanted to accomplish in order to update our 1970's home. Besides our bedrooms and master bath, there was something we wanted to tweak in every room from floor to ceiling. I knew I had to hire Alice after our first phone conversation. There was something she said that struck a chord, about how it saddens her that people will wait to renovate their homes when they decide to sell it, instead of doing so while they are living in to enjoy. My family loves the updates to our home, particularly my daughter who likes our "new" home better than the 'old' one. Without adding any square footage and even with closing a room back up, the updates made our home feel more open and airy. My advice is to hire Alice as your interior designer / project manager. She is a  great communicator with keeping you updated on project status and really just knows how to squeeze a lot of work within a reasonable amount of time.

we could not have done it so well without her help

We are very happy with the way Alice and her team managed the renovation of our home. I truly think we could not have done it so well without her help. She has made us love our home and feel comfortable in it. Her design suggestions were tasteful while keeping the budget and timeline in mind. In a number of instances she came up with creative ideas to make the space more usable and look better while keeping the budget in mind. She has always been on top of any unforeseen delays and followed up and kept us posted. Our home is now an inspiration to our friends and family.

my house seems like a brand new house

My home was in need for a remodel for some time -- what started out as switching from carpet to the existing hardwood floors morphed into a well-needed top-to-bottom remodel of the house, from the roof to the flooring, with completely redesigned and remodeled bathrooms and kitchen, paint inside and out, flooring, new roof, and new fixtures and furniture it all rooms.  I was very happy to find Alice to help me get this now large job completed successfully.  Right after we started the remodel, I had an illness in the family which took much of my time, and Alice and her team stepped in and did all the heavy lifting -- they made great suggestions of several design choices for each room and remodeling task, and made picking the right choice easy.  If something needed to be changed, they changed it.  If problems cropped up, they fixed it, pronto.  They were patient with me as my schedule changed around unexpectedly due to family illness, and worked around it to make sure things got done.  One sign of the quality of Alice and her team's work was the individual contractors for each task from flooring to painting to construction to electric to roofing, all took pride in their work and had a fine attention to detail that made sure that nothing got missed.  I am really happy with the final result, and my house seems like a brand new house that I have been thrilled with since I moved back in.

with her services I saved a lot of time and money

Before working with Alice to completely renovate and design my 36 years old house, I know I can't do it by myself. She did the planning and budgeting and coordinating with the general contractor and his subs to make sure everything on track. She designed the floor plan of our kitchen based on what we wanted.   We chose the materials together. She was very patient, willing to make changes to our satisfaction.  With her services I saved a lot of time and money as well. My friends were amazed that my little house actually can turn into such beautiful home.My advice for those thinking of hiring Alice and her team, you get a best choice!

without Alice’s help on our whole house remodel, my husband and I would probably no longer be on speaking terms

I can honestly say without Alice's help on our whole house remodel, my husband and I would probably no longer be on speaking terms. When undertaking such a large sale project there are so many decisions to make and trying to anticipate every possible future consideration would have been impossible without her experience. She kept everything running smoothly which was quite a feat since it can be hard to find construction people when they are heavily in demand. Since she has excellent taste, my husband and I both felt comfortable with accepting many of her recommendations. For example, she proposed a seating arrangement in our formal sitting room that we were initially skeptical about and it turned out to be something we both love and has made the room so much more livable. She paired the seating with an amazing custom wood coffee table that wows visitors. She listened to what we wanted and then offered options while keeping within our budget. Even though the landscaping was originally not part of the project, when my husband expressed his desire to simplify the landscape to free up some of his time, Alice was able to find the right people to get the job done. She is very professional and she works with likewise other professionals. A couple of things I would like to point out that were particularly helpful to me. If I was not available to be at home for whatever reason, Alice would schedule things so that she could be there to accept deliveries or supervise. If the work wasn't done right or up to my husband's exacting standards, Alice was relentless in making sure that it was fixed and sometimes this took multiple tries. She responded quickly to all my texts and was always cheerful no matter the problems. Also, an added bonus, she was willing to figure out ways to get some of the perfectly good stuff being removed from my house recycled.
