What Our Clients Say

Dear Melanie,

Just to let you know we were able to sell our home prior to auction – which is what we wanted.

Thank you for all your assistance and the lovely styling which you and your team carried out on our home and no doubt helped in the successful sale.

Initially, we were not aware of what a stylist actually did but now realize that it is imperative that the house is presented without all the clutter, etc. that one builds up over the years.  This makes it possible for prospective buyers being able to see areas in the best possible light.  Obviously, this also makes for great photographs for marketing.

Our special thanks to Corine and Amanda who were very helpful with assisting us with presentation. They knew exactly how to display the furniture and accessories and were a pleasure to work with. They definitely took the stress out of it all !!!

We wish you all the best and would have no hesitation in recommending you should the occasion arise.

Jenny and John
Thank-you so much for providing us with all the furniture, artwork and accessories for the sale of our property.
I was aware that the use of furniture hire had become an increasingly popular sales tool and my expectations were accordingly high. Upon looking through your completed display for the first time, I was completely blown away!

The furniture placement was cleverly considered, optimising space and scope and perhaps even more exciting, was the bold yet sophisticated use of colours. The house was literally transformed and successfully auctioned at a price well above the reserve.
I have absolutely no doubt that the high selling price was as a direct result of your impressive display. I would highly recommend both you and your company to anyone who is in the process of selling a home.

Thank-you again…

We wanted to thank you for your help with the sale of our home. We believe that your involvement with the presentation helped us to achieve the price we wanted and to make the sale in an extraordinarily short time.

We had lived in the home for a long time and were ‘blind’ to many of the things that a new purchaser may notice immediately. Your advice in relation to these was invaluable. We loved your selection of furniture and furnishings which presented the lifestyle we had envisaged and displayed the home perfectly, accentuating the strengths of the property.

We had concerns about managing the sale process from our new home in NSW however your professionalism and seamless interaction with our agent made the process simple and worry-free. At our first meeting you communicated the process and timeframes to us then you kept us updated with progress and the whole event took place like clockwork.

We will be recommending your services to our friends in future.

Thank-you again…

Sometimes despite you thinking your home looks kind of OK to sell, someone walks in and shows you how to make it look amazing and that’s what Melanie did. I was encouraged to do a bit of painting, change a couple of light fittings while Melanie sorted the rest. Furniture was rearranged, vibrant artwork came in (and had people talking about it at inspections) and vases, lamps and cushions brought the colour and warmth out in every room. I got a great result above reserve on auction day for a moderate outlay, Melanie’s effort was a real factor in that.

Dear Melanie,

Just wanted to thank-you for the great decorating and styling job you did at Saligna Walk, Vermont South.

The styling enhanced the wooden pitched ceilings and terracotta floors from the Merchant builder’s 70’s era. The brown leather sofas and industrial flavoured coffee table in the lounge captured the relaxed but chic atmosphere in the house. The bedrooms were simple but elegant, I loved the prints and matching bedcovers. The placement of the plasma and family room furniture worked beautifully too.
Your layout gave the home an elegant and spacious look that was commented on by all potential buyers and visitors to the property as well as Real Estate agents. I’m positive this assisted in making my property desirable as it sold in just two weeks and it has topped the prices in the neighbourhood!

Congratulations on your great work.

Charming Changes was referred to us by a Real Estate Agent to advise us on styling our home in preparation for sale. I had first-hand experience to what Melanie’s approach to styling was, as my husband and I bought a home that had been totally decorated and styled by Charming Changes.

Consequently, I became quite excited and interested to see what Melanie would suggest for our home.

Unfortunately, when Melanie came to make her suggestions we had a painter with his drop sheets strewn over the entire house and furniture out of it’s proper place. Melanie assured me that this was no problem for her and began walking through each room enthusiastically suggesting ways to place furniture, lamps and flowers or removing items that made the room cluttered and busy.

My immediate reaction was ‘how can I achieve this on my own and will I buy the correct things? My fears were relieved as Melanie wrote pages of notes about colours, types of accessories and placing of these items to enhance space and appeal.

Following Melanie’s instructions close to 100%, my entire house inside and out has changed. It is warm, spacious, light and colour co-ordinated. My husband, teenage boys and I are delighted to have space and fresh surrounds to live in and wonder why we hadn’t done this previously.

Thank-you Melanie and Charming Changes for your expertise and advice! We are delighted with your service which has exceeded our expectations within a limited budget.
