Who we are
As Realtor®’s and Certified Decorating Professionals®, Laurie Cote and Jacqui DiCenso formed ReVamped Interiors to fill a need in their real estate marketplace. In an area with such a shortage of inventory, they realized that the most important and beneficial way to help a buyer find a home (or for that matter, help a seller get the most value for their’s) is to enlighten them on the possibilities the home offers. It’s often hard for a seller to see their home’s potential when they are living there day-to-day.
It’s evident when you work with this team that their experience benefits both the client’s or seller’s they engage with. ReVamped will work relentlessly to help you get the most value for your home (or—prevent you from making a change that could have no return on your investment.)
With ReVamped Interiors, every project whether a new design, redesign or home staging, begins with a consultation. Putting together a proposal for your home or office allows you to see and understand the scope of work before it’s set into motion.
Knowing the hardest part of any project is deciding what can be done, by when and for how much, ReVamped Interiors delivers a plan in a phased approach to allow flexibility to the entire process.
Nothing about ReVamped Interiors is ‘cookie-cutter.’ Each plan is designed to speak to the style and individuality of the client and their home or office. Better yet, their team of “Handy Women” can also manage and complete many parts of the project for you, including cleaning, packing, purging, painting and small home repairs.
Decorating is not just for the rich and famous. There are many things you can do yourself to prepare for hiring a consultant and keep costs down. Here are a few ideas:
Do your homework… It will save you both time and money if you have samples or photographs of what you are hoping to achieve (color, pattern, theme, etc.) This is a perfect starting point for your decorator.
Predetermine your budget… Set realistic parameters for your project (and your wallet.) Let your decorator know what that price is upfront so a starting point is established. This can also help determine for how much you may need to take on yourself.
Ask for references… Every consultant has a unique work style. Before you hire, ensure that you ‘connect’ with the Consultant. By working effectively together you are able set realistic expectations. This could be a significant investment and you want to make sure your decorator is recommended and insured.
What we can do for you
Preparing Your Home for Sale (Staging)
If you are planning to list your home for sale, establishing a timeline and fixer-upper budget are critical. ReVamped Interiors coordinates with you or your Agent to make sure your home is updated and staged in time to be photographed. The goal is to create an online image that appeals to a variety of buyers. Each seller receives honest feedback about the changes that need to happen to increase the value of their home (saving the Listing Agent that responsibility!) Work can begin after the initial consult and any necessary outside services are contracted to achieve the finished project.
Revitalizing Your Home
If your home is feeling a little tired, a Redesign is the perfect and affordable choice. By working closely with the home owner, accessing their furniture and decor, and determining what their needs are, the ReVamped Interiors team can arrange to be in and out in one day — leaving your home completely reinvigorated!
The simplest change can create a totally new outcome. The entire style, function and purpose of each room can be transformed and just by using your own items. The result will be astonishing.
PreVamping Your Home
This is our way of saying "get it ready". The ReVamped Interiors team has staff to do a lot of the upfront work required before any staging or selling can begin.
Their staff has done a variety of projects for their clients such as:
- space planning
- painting (walls, cabinets, trim, etc.)
- organizing and decluttering
- packing and unpacking
- selecting additional vendors
- overall project management
Making the project come together any way possible is what they do. They will even shop for your new items such as lighting, fixtures, flooring and decor.
