“Josie, Deb and Tracy of Simplify are extremely efficient, obliging to a fault. It makes such a difference to be dealing with truly talented and practical people who go out of their way to be helpful in every respect when stress levels are often high and time frames tight. Always quickly wanting to embark upon a marketing campaign, one of my major priorities is speed. I have always been most impressed that you waste zero time inspecting the property and completing the task of maximising its true potential ready for me to present to the market place. Also, you give me great confidence that I can provide my clients with a professional service at a competitive rate.
I must say also that the finished products have always been right up there with my highest standards of expectation so it’s without the slightest hesitation that I extend my unconditional gratitude to the girls of Simplify. You certainly make the journey of marketing a home a genuine pleasure for me and my vendors.”
Andrew Degn, Director, Place Paddington
"With the real estate market really tightening up home owners and agents need to use everything at their disposal to attract as many buyers as they can in an attempt to sell homes for premium prices. I have been reluctant in the past to use property stylists as I was confident that if buyers loved the home they would buy it regardless of the internal presentation. My attitude over the past 2 years has completely changed after seeing firsthand not only the amazing transformation with professional styling but the ease of selling homes and the prices achieved.
The most recent example was a home in Stafford Heights that we were attempting to sell with tenants. Although the home was not presented badly, after many inspections over 4 weeks we were unable to generate an offer while the price feedback was very low. We urged the owner to withdraw the home from sale and wait 3 weeks while the tenants moved out and had the home professionally styled. The outcome was it was sold for a premium price within 2 weeks of being re-listed! Same house, same market but with professional styling.
I now recommend Josie and her amazing team at Simplify to every home owner that is considering selling as I have seen properties sell faster and for better prices with professional property styling.”
Alistair Macmillan, Principal, Ray White Wilston
"Josie and the team at Simplify have consistently gone above and beyond to meet even the highest standards. They are consistently very competitive with pricing and give a level of service for beyond that of their competition. As a professional in the real estate industry I had my own home styled by Simplify and recommend them highly to all clients. Look no further the team at Simplify are simply the best."
Jackson Oram, Coronis Coorparoo
"I engaged Josie and the team at Simplify to help stage a property I was selling in Corinda. The owners were pushed for time and needed the home to be online in an extremely short amount of time. Josie and her team not only had no problems meeting our unrealistic expectations, but exceeded them by doing such an amazing job. Every promise was followed through and delivered at a high level of professionalism. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Simplify team and I will definitely be using them again in the future."
Jackson Evenden, Ray White Sherwood
"I was referred to Josie and her team by a mutual colleague and was very happy with the quick response and turnaround time. The advice she provided was spot on, she knew what she was doing and provided very relevant information. The before and after shots were a big difference and this definitely helped with the marketing of the property. Most, if not all of the attendees were impressed with how it looked and the eventual buyer even mentioned it was the way they wanted it to look when they move in. Would love to work with Josie and her team again."
Mervyn Chen, Ray White Toowong
“I just wanted to thank you so much for your efforts – preparing a quote on such short notice and taking the time out to fit us in. We just wanted to let you know that we are always extremely impressed with your work, efficiency and attention to detail…it certainly makes a difference for us and our sellers! Thanks again Josie, we will be in touch with our next client in the near future I am sure.”
Jacinta Gleeson, Sales and Marketing for Andrew Degn, Place Estate Agents, Paddington
“I would like to thank Debra and the team at Simplify for their great work at Westlake Drive, Westlake. Their styling and attention to detail was impeccable. Each room was carefully considered and the final product was perfect. We sold the home in 10 days and had an overwhelming response to the styling. After using many companies in the past, I will not be using anyone but this team moving forward!”
Steven Kremer, Plumb Property Toowong
“I tell my clients to go see Josie, Deb and Tracy from Simplify not just because they are great at what they do but mainly due to the overwhelming responses I receive from my clients in regards to how well the girls listened to their needs and delivered as promised.”
David Thomas, Belle Property South Brisbane
"I have been completely satisfied with the service from the team at Simplify. Always willing to provide service and advice, and nothing is too much of a problem."
Darren Bonehill, Coronis Coorparoo
"I've engaged the Simplify team to style a number of properties. Their work is of a high standard and always delivered at reasonable cost. Their styling efforts have added many thousands to my clients' selling price. The girls are so professional and personable, and they go above and beyond with their service. I recommend them wholeheartedly."
Julie Jackson-Lemaire, McGrath Estate Agents, New Farm
“Anyone intending in using Simplify will be very happy with the service, and look of their home after the girls have ‘weaved their magic’. We have referred them to many clients and every person has said ‘what a difference the makeover has made’. As an agent I feel a better price has been achieved for the seller.”
Ian Cuneo, Ray White, Ascot
"I would recommend Simplify to anyone wanting to maximise their sale price and reduce time on market. I have had a 100% success rate with all my clients that have taken advantage of Simplify's styling, and they have all sold in under 4 weeks!"
Adam Wishart, Harcourts Centenary
"Being a local agent for 10 years, I find many of my clients need that extra helping hand when it comes to styling their existing furniture or more importantly styling empty and useable spaces of their home. Making contact with the girls from Simplify was easy, and I left everything to them. From picking up the keys, gaining entry and delivery to picking up the furniture.
A client of mine was selling a small unit in Morningside and we struggled to get our audience to look beyond the empty space within the four walls. After just a few hours I was delivered with an amazing, contemporary, furnished apartment that oozed style and sophistication. That afternoon I showed the apartment to a prospective purchaser and it was sold that very day - after eight weeks without an offer! The girls had changed how the buyers behaved and automatically enhanced their imagination and how the space would be best used. After that proven success, I now recommend the girls from Simplify to all my clients."
Paul Johns, Place Estate Agents Bulimba
"With the expertise of the talented team from Simplify I had a beautifully presented home that generated 2 cash offers in 3 days and over 50 viewings in the first two opens. I would recommend this team to dress any home large or small for an excellent outcome for both vendors and agents. Thanks again."
Pamela Ross, Ray White, Paddington
“Being a real estate agent myself I see the exponential returns that sellers achieve by investing a little in having their homes presented ‘just right’ after seeking advice from professionals. The team at Simplify were excellent from the initial consultation, through the install and then the eventual collection after the sale was complete. It has always been my experience that you know you are with great people when you see them ‘going the extra mile’. I knew we had chosen well when I saw the Simplify crew ironing the sheets before making the beds up! How many people would do that? That level of detail and care was consistent throughout the whole process. If I was selling again tomorrow, they would be one of my first calls.”
Brad Jackson, Director, RE/MAX Property Centre, Toowong & Kenmore
"After having my house repainted and the gardens looking perfect, it would have been a shame to have the property bare for photos in advertising and inspections. I wanted buyers to picture living in the property and how they could use the space. Although the house is tiny, you can fit lot in. The styling and quality of furniture and accessories made such a difference to the outcome, with 16 couples loving the house and registering to bid and a sale tens of thousands over reserve; it was a no-brainer."
Rebecca Geldard - General Manager
Ray White Noosa Hastings Street, Peregian Beach
“As an auctioneer and agent presentation is everything. Your company is delivering great results to your clients. I recommend you to everyone.”
David Bennett, Auctioneer
"Great job with the styling, everything works well with the house. It looks inviting without that clinical display home feel. The property went under contract in less than 48 hours which is a great result, and I will definitely recommend your company to future vendors."
Nick Yamada, Place Rochedale/MacGregor
"The transformation Simplify creates is worth every dollar. Rooms which previously appeared dysfunctional become functional and tired old furniture is replaced with appropriate styles and freshness. This visual remodelling of the interior is what Simplify create. The cost and benefits give the owner an advantage when selling."
Alexandra Cuneo, Ray White Ascot
"The team at Simplify did an amazing job of highlighting the features of my property. I found their pricing to be fair, they arrived on time and looked after everything. I believe the quick sale and fantastic price achieved was due to their fabulous styling."
Marilyn Thurtell, Principal, MTR Property Group
“What a difference Josie and the Simplify team can make to a house when selling. Certainly makes a difference in the presentation and worth every dollar spent, which I believe brings more $$$’s to my vendors at sale time. Their services range from a reshuffle of furniture placement with the addition of extra pieces from their stock, to a complete makeover when properties are empty. The results are amazing! I love to see the surprise on my vendors’ faces when the job is completed. Presentation is just so important when selling a house. This then leaves me to do my job… selling and marketing the property. I hope that the girls will continue helping me present my properties superbly.”
Lyn Dwyer, Ray White Graceville
"I am hired by my clients to sell their home and how saleable a home is relies on a few things; feature, location, price and presentation. Josie and her team are tactful and professional about the advice they offer and know exactly how to style for sale. Thank you Josie.”
Briarne Manley, Nanette Lilley Property, Graceville
"Your staging transformed the house into a very saleable property, sold in the first weekend after your makeover - great job girls!!! I'll keep suggesting you to anyone that needs some magic."
Shane West, Eastside Property Centre, Belmont
“I would like to say thank you for all your help and advice. You have been absolutely wonderful, very friendly and understanding. The transformation of the property was amazing, the owner was very pleased and the buyers appreciated the aesthetic presentation. It is crucial to have the best presentation for the property when it is on the market – you have only one chance to make an impression. I would happily recommend your company to all prospective sellers. I wish you all the best in the future. Kind regards, Marina”
Marina Carmody, Ray White, Toowong
“We are really pleased that you have always been able to assist us at such short notice, on many occasions. We have had 100% success rate when using Simplify – one property was on the market for some time and could not even get an offer. After hiring Simplify to fully furnish and style the home we received five offers and went under contract at an open house the next day! The owners are happy as the price exceeded their expectations, and well and truly covered the cost of hiring Simplify.”
Laura Mullens, Michelle Huston and Mark Kearns, Remax Colonial, Annerley
“As a real estate agent, I am faced with the eternal struggle between buyers wanting to buy at the cheapest price and sellers wanting to sell at the highest price. It is a nice change when a property presents in such a way that there is very little need for negotiation. The team at Simplify understood exactly what was required to showcase four brand new townhouses in Carina which ended up fetching record prices for the street. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Simplify for anyone aiming to achieve the best possible price for their property.”
David Wilson, Principal, Platinum Private, Camp Hill
“As a Real Estate agent with 20 years experience selling in Brisbane's South-East, I am always striving to improve the end result for all of my clients. My dealings with Simplify have been nothing short of AMAZING. Situation: Young family needing to sell their vacant home, external paint peeling and situated on a busy road. Solution: After engaging Simplify to stylishly furnish a few of the rooms in conjunction with some of the owners’ furniture, they were able to transform the empty shell into a vibrant and stylish home. Result: With over 66 groups of buyers through the property (the majority of whom had seen the gorgeous photos on the internet), it sold under the hammer at auction with nine registered bidders in front of a large crowd. The eventual selling price was $60,000 over the highest offer presented. An outstanding result to say the least! The talented team at Simplify helped this family achieve a premium result in extremely challenging times. Well done to all the team at Simplify.”
Robyn Pappas – Principal, Robyn Pappas Real Estate
“I just wanted to say how thrilled both my clients and I always are with your work. The difference you make to the presentation of my clients’ homes is remarkable, resulting in increased inspections, and very high levels of interest in their homes. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone considering selling their home who wants to present it in the best possible light and attract the highest number of buyers”.
Debora Sutton, Belle Property, Wilston
“We, and our client, cannot thank you enough for the fabulous transformation you have made to our client’s property. What previously appeared to be an awkward, limited floor plan you rearranged into a functional space with a fresh, modern appeal pitched at the right buyer demographic. Not only did it entice one of the original buyers back for a second inspection, it encouraged them to go to contract at a price higher than previous market feedback. Thank you so much for working with us to get the property moving, and helping to get a better price (which more than covered the associated costs!)”
Tegan Zernike, Harcourts Solutions, Mitchelton
“After working on this property for some weeks we were not attracting buyers so with the vendors’ permission we brought in Simplify to do a makeover prior to auction. It was truly a metamorphosis. We were having twenty plus groups through the open homes and it was sold prior to auction for very close to the Vendors price. The girls from Simplify were efficient, quick and suitably stylish for the flow of the home giving lots of ideas on how to use the home to its premium.”
Bron Collins, Ray White, Wilston
“I have been delighted with the fantastic makeover that the Simplify stylists did on my property. They worked wonders using my own items as well as the ones they brought in to show off our unit to best advantage. They have a great eye for the little things that make a huge difference in how a unit presents for marketing, which makes the whole sales process much simpler and less stressful for all concerned. The Action Plan is a winner too!”
Tara Connell, Status Properties
“Working with the very professional and talented team at Simplify continues to be a very beneficial experience for us. To be able to offer our clients this remarkably transformative and cost effective service makes our job a lot easier. We never cease to be amazed at their creative genius in optimising the opportunities each property holds and delivering a stunning turnaround. Our clients, without fail, have been delighted with the results and the market edge it has given them.”
Rhondda Arentz, Ray White
"As a real estate agent, I was after a property styling company that would not only take care of my clients, but be easy to work with… After meeting Josie and Deb for the first time I knew they would be perfect. Thank you Josie and Deb, with your help I have been able to make sure I can get the best price for my clients' properties.”
Steven Gow, Ray White Coorparoo
“Real Estate Agents have homes too…..I recently marketed and sold my home employing the expertise of Simplify property stylists, Josie and Debra. The results and professionalism were way beyond even my expectations! I strongly recommend their services to all my clients in order to achieve the best outcome possible in marketing their homes for sale. Thanks ladies, for a great job and a truly ‘stress free’ experience.”
Karyl Shapiro, Ray White, Ascot
“Josie and Deb have an enviable creative knack of knowing just what appeals to the current market. Their professional and easy manner made them a pleasure to have in our home. We achieved at least $20,000+ above our expectations by ‘de-cluttering’ and ‘modernising’ our 36 year old home. Well worth the money.”
Neil Murray, Ray White, Chermside
“I would most definitely recommend speaking to Josie & Debra at Simplify. They will give you numerous ideas and will suggest how to increase your home’s perceived value, attract the right kind of buyer, and ultimately sell your property as quickly as possible!”
Bridget Davidson, Ray White, Wilston
