Cindy, I want to take this opportunity to sincerely "thank you" for all your help this year in both selling our previous home and in helping make our new lake house the "dream home" we wanted. First...selling our previous home. Like most homeowners, we thought our home was "perfect" and we had the normal "emotions" when we decided to sell. From an "owner" perspective, we may have been correct. However, when we met you and had an opportunity to listen to your design consultative perspective from a "buyers" perspective, you convinced us that we needed some help on both "what to do" and "how to do it" in preparing our home for sale. You not only recommended and provided some design and presentation changes, but also presented these ideas in a way that was both sensitive yet firm to your convictions and our emotions. The end result...our home sold in 3 weeks at 97% of our asking price! We are firmly convinced that your contributions had a key influence in making this happen...and this was done in a challenging real estate market! Second...when we found the lake home we wanted, we knew that it could be the "perfect" home for us, yet needed the "final touches" to turn it into the dream home we envisioned. Like many homebuyers, we knew the "general" look and decorative touches we thought we wanted, but from there we were not sure "how " to proceed. Once again, you came to the rescue! You listened to what "look" we wanted...you immediately took charge, came up with your ideas, recommendations and options that created the road map that would take us to our dream home. Once we all agreed, you did some things we feel are generally missing from design consultants. These included "finding" all the decorative resources and pieces we needed, scheduling and managing all the activities involved and most important...keeping us within the budget guidelines we had agreed to. Many people have "ideas" but the hard part is turning ideas into realities. And finally, you did this in a timely/organized fashion and provided great communication on the progress of the job. Tha end result...our lake house is now truly the drream home we envisioned...and far exceeds the results that would have happened if we had done this on our own...and for that, we will be forever grateful! While it is impossible to properly capture all the services and help you provided in a letter, we hope the statement "You are the Best" somehow shows our appreciation and thanks for being our "design partner." Please feel free to not only use us as a "more than satisfied" referral, but also bring perspective clients to our home to "show and tell" what you helped us accomplish.
Hi Cindy, Just talked to Mary...she is so impressed with you that she told her friend in Lakeway who has her house on the market. I gave the friend, Lindsay your contact information. Also, Mary just told me that she may hire you for her new home in Steiner...that would be great! Thanks again for working with us yesterday!
Our house was built in 1990-91. Our builder Ray Tonjes recommended Cindy Gibbs to help us select all of the things involving the inside of the house - paint, wallpaper, hardware, appliances, window treatments, carpeting, tile for the kitchen and baths, furniture and other amenities for the home. We were very pleased with her help in the selections we made. She knew where to locate all the items we needed and at the best prices. I have not tired of any of the selections we made and all our friends and family think we have a lovely home. We do alot of entertaining and we are always proud to open our home to our guests.
I highly recommend Cindy Gibbs to anyone who wants to take their business to new heights. I was referred to Cindy a little over 2 years ago by Liz Hogue in our office. I hesitated using her services at first because the cost was higher than I was accustomed to paying. However, once I experienced the level of expertise she provides, my business was transformed and she become an integral part of every listing I take. I've used many stagers in the past, but no one compares to what I've seen Cindy do - she is definitely in a league of her own! I am continuously amazed at the way a home looks when I walk into it at the beginning of a listing, and what it becomes after Cindy puts her magic touch on it. I always refer to her with my sellers as my "secret weapon", and the results speak for themselves. As an example, in reviewing 8 of my more recent listings, they sold in 11,4,2,1,13,1,4,and 7 days respectfully - we had multiple offers on 5 of them - and 4 sold at full price. One offer was at $2,000 above asking price, and another was at $10,000 above asking price! I attribute much of that success to Cindy, because I am confident that with her help we set my listings apart from the competiton and make them stand out above the rest. So, in closing, what I've discovered is that by enlisting Cindy's help, I definitely pay more up-front, but I've gained so much more in the long run. I'm able to price my listings at top dollar, they sell quicker and for more, I get many more referrals from very happy sellers, and I'm provided with great advertising for future listing calls as everyone watches the sold signs go up very quickly. I am truly grateful to Cindy for the incredible impact she has had on my business.

Research the person on the internet first then make an appointment to see if your personalities are compatible.
The budget is always the most important factor. Then decide the use of the space and what you want out of it. Magazine pictures of color combinations you like, furniture you want, arrangements of the room, etc. are invaluable.
