The Client Said...
I located 3 Pea's Property Styling via an internet search and engaged their services to provide Pre-Sale Preparation Advice, Property and Garden Maintenance, Cleaning & Decluttering and finally furniture hire and property styling.
After a thorough appraisal of this 5 bedroom sandstone home on a 6+ acre property with 3 Pea's, I could not have been more satisfied with the detailed and accurate quotes for the project of works which took place. I had a budget which was understood and respected by 3 Pea's throughout.
Not only was the project completed as agreed and on schedule, I very impressed with the weekly updates I received on the scheduled progress. Occasionally, there were variants in the schedule of works due to weather, waiting on parts, tradesmen etc. however, these circumstances were communicated to me immediately and 3 Pea's would then focus on another aspect of the overall project. As a result the whole project was completed in the originally agreed time frame.
When it came to staging, the styling was complimentary to the property. Simple, elegant, stylish, both inside and out, and in keeping with the agreed budget.
When the property was ready to go to market, 3 Pea's provided me with advice on real estate agents in the Ballarat region (as I do not live locally) and "walked" me through this process, in order for me to select the best agent to carry out this sale. As a result the property was sold within four weeks, at a price I was very satisfied with.
3 Pea's also promoted the property via social media, positively supporting the agents overall marketing campaign.
In preparing my property for sale, my main area of concern was that I was living and working in Melbourne, while trying to prepare a country property for sale. I was very concerned about how I would manage this, which is why I did an Internet search on services available to assist in this process. I was so relieved when I came across 3 Pea's and even more relieved when I actually met and spoke with Jo Powell. I knew immediately that I'd found my "guardian angel" which proved to be the case.
3 Pea's Property Styling provided a complete service from beginning to end. I found the whole process to be totally professional, but also realistic, in the desired outcome. The bonus for me was the regular and honest communication and comparison photos of "before and after" which I received regularly about the project of work. This was important as I was not involved on a daily basis.
I am totally impressed and grateful; due to my initial dilemma of being so far away. I have the highest praise for 3 Pea's Property Styling. I would recommend them to anyone selling a property in order to achieve the highest possible price on sale.
A very professional, but realistic company to work and deal with!

The Agent Said...
3 Pea's assisted the vendor to prepare this property for sale providing property and garden maintenance, cleaning & decluttering.
The property was a large and vacant home which was without character or warmth. 3 Pea's Property Styling assisted in overcoming these issues by staging the property to become appealing in photography and compliment buyer inspections.
Once on the market, 3 Pea's also featured the property in their social media marketing, positively supporting the agency marketing of the property.
I would certainly recommend 3 Pea's Property Styling to other selling their property.
