Peter Alcock – Newcastle

“Recently I decided to sell my Port Macquarie investment property that I have owned for the past 20 years – it obviously needed a good “freshening-up” and as I live in Newcastle, I looked for someone local who could assist me in this process. I was fortunate to find Michelle Burton from Designing Divas who coordinated an amazing team of professional trades people to transform my 2 bedroom unit into a fresh and modern styled apartment in just two weeks. 

I have nothing but praise for Michelle and her work – from the moment I first met her at the unit and listened to her suggestions, I knew I was working with a professional.  Michelle’s ideas were practical and affordable and really made the difference to the final sale price I was able to achieve within two short weeks of listing, along with the professionalism of Keith Olsen at McGrath. They both kept in touch with me on a daily basis during the process so I always felt comfortable that the work was being completed on time, all the time.  I know that I doubled my investment in making the unit look exceptional, with a real “buy me now” look! 

Thank you Michelle and Keith!”

“My client used Designing Divas to style their property for sale. The level of professionalism and constant communication was exactly what we were after. Every potential purchaser that commented on the styling had nothing but great things to say and I believe we achieved a premium sale price as a result their work”.

“Thanks Michelle for the lovely styling of our unit. It looked great in the photos and video that were taken to advertise, also got a lot of positive feedback from prospective buyers!! We sold at auction yesterday after being for sale for only 4 weeks!!! I think having your property styled definitely gives it the winning edge over others!!!….Thanks again Michelle!”
