Show Homes & Rental Properties
We have recently begun working with some independent developers who wish to offer their clients something a little different from the often bland, hotel look, but who require schemes which obviously need to be appeal to the general market. Our first venture was a small development of four houses near Chichester. We offered advice on the finishes, colours and decoration on all the houses and furnished and accessorised one as a show home. The response was excellent and the houses were all sold very quickly.
We are currently working with the same developer on another site with planning for five detached houses and on his recommendation are due to start working with another company, on the conversion of a four storey office in Hove, into seven residential apartments.
We have also worked with several developers, organising renovations on rental properties, from complete overhauls to a quick refresh over very short timescales.
"We are delighted with the way Georgina transformed our town house, both from a design and a project management point of view. The first time we met we were impressed that Georgina was much more concerned with finding out what we wanted rather than talking about herself. We wanted an overall colour scheme for the whole house, and the scope included decorating and carports/flooring/tiling throughout, a new bathroom, a new kitchen and some furniture and joinery. She then came up with her ideas for an overall concept and for some features in the main rooms, and we were delighted - they were very much in tune with what we wanted. At all stages she sought our agreement and let us choose between options she found for us. She then managed the project very effectively: getting quotes from contractors she trusted, letting us choose them, and then managing them. In fact we were able to move out for five of the eight weeks, makings it easier for us and the workers, and Georgina oversaw the work. She kept us updated with item by item costs on an amazing spreadsheet. In the end it was done to a high standard and we are very pleased. Georgina was a joy to work with, with a good sense of humour."Colin Johnson
