What home owners are saying....

As a single guy trying to sell a house in today’s market, my home was not exactly fashionable. It became clear that something needed to be done to spice up the look and show off the house better. That’s when we brought in Lois to make the house show much better for potential buyers. Lois came in and quickly realized what she needed to do. She came in and within a few hours, I had a model home look to my house. She did a great job, was very professional and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to stage their house for sale or for every day decorating.

I contacted Lois for two reasons: 1) I needed help picking out interior and exterior paint colors, and 2) I had two renovated properties that I wanted to stage and put on the market. I did quite a bit of research on the benefits of staging before contacting Lois and knew that my homes needed an extra boost in this market.

In our first meeting, Lois helped me select the perfect paint colors for both the exterior and interiors of three of my rental properties. This saved me time and money; because normally I would take several days and quarts of paint until I was satisfied. Lois selected the right colors in one outing.

I also had two houses I planned to sell. Even though they were beautifully renovated, I wanted to showcase the features and beauty of each house with professional staging. The way in which each property was staged really maximized each home’s potential and both were sold soon after staging (one within days).

Lois has a keen eye for color and has beautiful furniture and accessories to compliment any home. Her services are affordable and timely. I intend to use Impressive Interiors for all my staging needs. It’s the best way to showcase your home for a quick sale.

I called Lois Brant of Impressive Interiors to help us prepare our house to sell. We had a few rooms that were bare and did not show well. Lois came and viewed our space , and came back with a quote that was reasonable for us to rent additional furniture. She also allowed us to rent accessories that pulled everything together. I was pleased with her attention to detail, and would recommend her services to anyone.

Lois has helped me make my house more comfortable several times. After the death of my husband, I really was feeling ill at ease at home, and she gave me the low budget “face lift” I needed to enjoy coming home again! My lanai and guest rooms are show places because of her work! “I highly recommend her!”

Lois, We can’t thank you enough for all of the help you have given us as we continue to remodel/restore our mid century home..

You completely understand our need to keep within a moderate budget and have assisted us in finding the period pieces we need by scouring various furniture stores, consignment shops, and the internet.

As our vision changed from our traditional Midwestern style to the mid-century look, you have been flexible and completely willing to adapt to those changes. Your advice and vision allowed us to continue to use some of the pieces we brought with us, while incorporating the mid-century pieces that we found and loved!

You have developed a great list of contacts and partners in your work – from the fabric wholesaler to the seamstress, our slip cover project came off without a hitch and the new moderately priced blinds have brightened up the entire house.

Your eye for color is amazing. Your initial color suggestions made us a bit nervous, but we are so glad that we followed them. The deeper color at the back of the house has provided the focal point that you promised. Our visitors, who have seen the house before the renovation and after, always comment on how much they love the color combinations.

Your happy redecorators, John & Clara Wooten

I cannot begin to describe the delight my husband and I felt, after Lois Brant of Impressive Interiors selected all of our paint colors for our home. We were having a difficult time. We had spent alot of money on samples, only to become rather frustrated, because our choices were obviously not right for our home. Lois came in and selected a palette that was refreshing. Every room blended into the next seamlessly! I would have never even considered some of the colors, but they really did our home justice. I will be calling her to update our window treatments after Christmas! We are truly happy customers! Thank you Lois.

Lois, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the services rendered to me regarding the redesign of my Family Room.

From the moment you walked through the door back in March, I felt like you fully understood what I was trying to accompliah and, with those goals in mind, you helped me make it happen. I appreciate the fact that there was no push to “do it your way,” rather, you accepted what I thought I wanted and guided me to make the right choices. Assistance with paint color and carpet choice was perfect.

Of course, your guidance with rearrangement of the furniture was crucial, and we are very happy with the result. The recovered valance looks so great, and I loved that you approved my fabric choice for that. It was a real pleasure working with you, and I also appreciate how quickly you got back to me when I had questions or for scheduling. Thank you again for sharing your decorating expertise.

Lois Brant of Impressive Interiors has a wonderful eye for detail. She was able to transform our condo to sell from our “lived in look”, to a showcase out of House Beautiful!

I needed a fresh approach to my living room and family room, and Lois definitely took me outside my “box”, and accomplished that for me! A few rearrangements of furnishings and repurposing of decorative items, and I’m LOVING my new environment! Well worth the
money.

It was a fun experience..My husband liked it too and commented how this is much more cost effective than buying new furniture :)
Thanks, again!

We handed a cluttered Condo to Lois Brant of Impressive Interiors, and she transformed it into a JEWEL!

This jewel showed spectacularly in the virtual tour of the property. So much so, that by the end of the 1st week’s listing, we had 2 offers!!

We accepted one, and are very pleased with her efforts. Thank you Lois for doing such an amazing job for us!

What realtors are saying....

Impressive Interiors is an absolute MUST for anyone looking to sell their home. I have been selling real estate for over 24 years, and began working with Lois Brant, and Impressive Interiors about 8 years ago, in 2002. I cannot tell you the difference it has made for my clients. When the market was good, her advice helped drive the pricing up; and now, with a bad market, her advice and personal service continues to make my listings stand out from all the rest. To date, I have 100% success. Every listing I have had that worked with Lois and me AND took our advice, have sold their homes!

Lois has helped me tremendously sell my listings QUICKER and for TOP DOLLAR. She amazes my clients with her ability to take existing items from their home and make it look like a show room. Her ability to provide other items from her inventory/resources at a reasonable investment makes her a valuable asset to my clients and me:) She is creative, resourceful, conscientious and thinks out of the box. I also appreciate the way she works with my clients and makes them feel very comfortable in such an emotional situation as “feedback” on their home. She is very careful with their feelings but honest and solutions oriented. She knows how to “tell the truth attractively”! It is great to have Lois as such a valuable part of my team….and that’s what Lois is…. part of my team. I feel very lucky to know her and work with her.

Lois is excellent at stepping back to look at a home through “Buyer’s Eyes.” She understands how to highlight strengths and downplay weaknesses in order to appeal to the largest pool of buyers. After lingering on the market for more than six months, she used her creativity to work within my seller’s budget, staged the home beautifully, and within ONE WEEK it was under contract. It’s scheduled to close in 30 days. She is truly amazing.

Having used Lois Brant for my personal home for paint colors and window treatments I was absolutely thrilled with the quality, selection, price, and quality!. Lois is the very best when selecting paint colors and I will not do it without her for myself or for other clients. In addition to her amazing talent in transforming homes with the right paint colors, she is equally as amazing with window treatments and fabric selections. Her decorating talents give her the edge on what compliments the windows, view, and home, making her selections dead on! The best money I and my clients have ever spent is investing in Lois and her expertise which prevented wasting money and compromising the end result we were wanting”.
