The Client Said...
I was initially referred to 3 Pea's Property Styling by my real estate agent as I required pre-sale preparation advice and services including cleaning, decluttering, property & garden maintenance and of course, property styling.
3 Pea's were very quick and responsive to my request for quotes and Jo was very willing to share her ideas and expertise with regard to what should be done to prepare the property for sale and how to stick within budget.
Jo worked to a very tight timeline and nothing was too much of a problem for her, working with the property and styling it to look it’s best. I was gobsmacked when I saw the results.
I had to place my trust and confidence in Jo as I was not on site to meet her and we could not visit the property together. Although I understood that this is normal in her line of work, I also felt vulnerable with regard to the terms, which required payment upfront, without being able to see the result. Nevertheless, I could tell by speaking to Jo, that she got what I was trying to achieve and we shared a vision. I was also reassured by looking at the 3 Pea's website.
Jo is the consummate professional. I did pay more than I initially planned but it was money well spent and it added at least 10-15% on to the value of our property, which worked out to a substantial amount.
I was concerned that the styling provided would only be superficial, for the purposes of the online campaign only and that it would not be authentic or stand up to ‘open for inspection’ scrutiny, but I need not have worried. Jo worked magic and we got the best price we could have.
Jo is an expert at her profession and she took a lot of the stress away from me. She gave timely and detailed reports and liaised very well with the real estate agent. She seems to have a good team of tradespeople at her disposal. Jo embraced all my ideas and she communicated very well.
I would definitely recommend 3 Pea's Property Styling to anyone selling their property
It was from Jo’s photos that I was able to direct the real estate promotional campaign photographer in how to present the property at its best. The property was chosen as 'Property of the Week' for the local newspaper which, along with 3 Pea's social media promotion, helped the sales campaign tremendously. I would suggest Jo could go a step further and actually be the photographer for the real estate agent!
I’d like to thank Jo for restoring my faith and trust in the preparing and selling process. She seems like a lovely person with great style and flair and is passionate about her work. Well done Jo.

The Client Said...
After being referred to 3 Pea's Property Styling by my Real Estate Agent, Gary Stewart of Wilson Estate Agents, I made contact via the 3 Pea's website to arrange Pre-Sale Preparation Advice, along with Cleaning & Decluttering Services.
A quote was quickly provided, detailing the cost of these services, along with the cost to hire furniture and style my property For Sale, which enabled me to make an informed decision about the services offered.
Once a plan was agreed, 3 Pea's completed all works, including installation of hired furniture which was complimentary to the property, as agreed and on schedule.
My main issues were presenting the house as beautifully as possible for sale, within necessary time and budgetary restraints. I wasn't sure where I needed to spend money, and found it difficult to look at things objectively.
Jo from 3 Pea's explained clearly what buyers would be attracted to about my house, and helped me stay on track in showcasing it's best features. Jo is a great communicator, and always kept me in touch and up to date about progress. When I couldn't be here, I felt completely comfortable for Jo to make any necessary decisions, and to supervise trades.
Jo's knowledge, insight and professionalism were instrumental in a fantastic sales result, after only 2 days on the market! I love that "my" house is going to look beautiful forever online, and that the new owner clearly loves it as much as I do. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending 3 Pea's services to anyone.
