CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

 

"The recent sale of our property at Sherwood was made so much easier, and profitable, by these ladies. They are so clever and easy to work with - I also got them to help with the placement of furniture and styling in our new home in Corinda."

Fay Jefferson, Sherwood & Corinda

 

"We were very happy with the service of Simplify. They organised the inspection of the property with the estate agent, the delivery, setting up and removal of furniture. The difference it made to the presentation by giving a modern look was great and helped for a smooth sale."

Jimmy Scott, Kangaroo Point

 

"The team at Simplify were engaged to assist us in the sale of our home.  Their dedication and professional approach cannot be faulted.  They offered initial advice and then came in and 'waved their magic wand' which assisted us in obtaining a signed contract within 14 days!  Thanks Simplify for all your help - if we need to sell another property in the future we will be sure to make contact."

Sandie and Rob Fraser, Indooroopilly

 

"Thanks so much for your work at Long St West, the house sold at auction. I got back to Brisbane and although I had seen the photos, it was different in person. You brought such skill to the job, a large vision realised in remarkable detail. I am sure it made a real difference to the impression created for potential buyers; I know it helped us immensely in managing the task of taking our mother's private home of nearly 40 years into a very public sale process. Thank you and very best wishes."

Jock Given, Graceville

 

"Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your efforts in styling my townhouse in Wilston. I believe your styling coupled with Andrew's expertise resulted in a sale price of $25,000+ more than I anticipated. The styling you chose and the positioning of said furniture provided a feeling of space and light which I had failed to achieve when I lived in the property myself!!!  It was a pleasure to work with you all - such easy, effective efficiency was greatly appreciated. I will definitively be recommending you to anyone I know that may be selling."

Shelly Cooper, Wilston

 

"Josie and her team did a fantastic job on the interior design of our home at Red Hill. The furnishings provided by Simplify and the 'look' created was amazing and certainly helped achieve a quick and successful sale of our property."

Graeme and Soraya Bews, Red Hill

 

"Just wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic job you did dressing my house today. It looks sooo good and I couldn't be happier. You’ve really matched the character of the house perfectly!  The real estate agent and the photographer loved it too.”"Josie and her team were a pleasure to deal with. They styled my home to match the character of the house and definitely added many $$ to the sale price. I'd recommend them to anyone." 

Naomi Sleeman, Holland Park

 

"Simplify was recommended to me by my real estate agent, who had used their service on a number of occasions before, and had been very pleased with the results that they provided. I was very happy with the results and the house looked amazing, it was inviting and certainly made the house look bright and airy. The service was exceptional, arriving when they said they would, allowing ample time for photographers, and the furniture was collected when requested. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simplify to anybody looking for this type of service to present a house for sale."

Jacqui Percy, Graceville

 

"We found Simplify Property Styling to be a professional and easy to engage solution, offering quality furniture that we are sure helped in selling our home quickly for a good price."

Nick Abbink, Lota

 

"We contacted 4 home stylists in Brisbane before asking Simplify to stage our home and we're glad we did! We found Josie and her team had such great ideas, they took our home to the next level and transformed it from a comfortable family home to one with the wow factor! At all times they were professional and respectful, all of the arrangements were clearly explained, everything went to plan and on time. We have no doubt that Simplify's staging helped us achieve a higher auction result and would have no hesitation in recommending them!”

Jenny McGoran, Sherwood

 

"We decided to get the ladies in from Simplify for the sale of our home, as our house and furniture was mismatched, old and tired. We had no idea where to start with making our home look presentable for sale and hoped that a professional touch would breathe some new life into our home. The team at Simplify completely surprised and amazed us, we could not believe how beautiful our home looked once it was professionally styled; so much so that we wished we had someone to help us style our home when we had originally moved in. I have to admit that our home looked so good that we were somewhat hesitant to leave!

Needless to say, the sale of our house went smoothly, with multiple offers and a contract signed before the 6 week furniture and soft furnishings rental period was up. I could not thank the ladies at Simplify enough, their advice and assistance went above and beyond. Their dedication and skill to make a tired old home look fresh and modern was amazing, and I believe this is what sold our house. I highly recommend Simplify and will definitely be using their services again with the sale of our next home. Thanks so much!"

Renee and Jamie Curran, Sheldon

 

"We would highly recommend Simplify to anyone who wants to maximise the potential of the sale of their home. Tracy, Deb and Josie provided great advice and really had our unit looking beautiful for all the photos and then for our open home inspections. We have absolutely no doubt it attracted potential buyers to look at our place and contributed to a quick sale. The unit looked so good we almost changed our minds about moving! In what is a stressful time these ladies and their friendly and professional attitudes gave us one thing we didn't have to worry about in the whole process and that is something we really appreciated."

Andrew and Tess Atkins, Coorparoo

 

"Josie, Deb and Tracy from Simplify did an exceptional job styling our home for sale. I really appreciated their professionalism and expertise in recommending furniture arrangements that really highlighted the best features of the house. They were also so accommodating creating a styling package that best suited our budget and timing. Thank you all again for contributing to the successful sale of our beautiful home!"

Nina Foster, Lutwyche

 

"On the recommendation of a friend, I recently entrusted the staging of my home to the three lovely ladies at Simplify Property Styling. I am so glad I did. The agent was pleasantly surprised with the amount of interest from the day the photos hit the internet. We had only one open inspection as we had two offers that day and a written contract by the next afternoon! We settled without a hitch, early in fact, as the owners couldn’t wait to move in.

I believe the secret was that Simplify was able to create a beautiful, warm, homey and believable atmosphere that really struck a chord with the buyers. Not only was the sale extremely quick and easy, thereby saving money, I was also able to increase the expected sale price of my modest home by $20,000+. I would say that’s a very good return on investment!

I will never sell a home again without staging and would certainly recommend Simplify. The communication via phone and email was faultless, they were decisive, professional yet friendly, quick, on time and bent over backwards to accommodate me at fairly short notice. A great experience at what can be a very stressful time."

Peggy Stewart, Alexandra Hills

 

"Dear future clients of Simplify,

We recently used Simplify to style our home in preparation to sell and I can't promote them enough!!  The team provided a wonderful service - efficient, friendly, classy and affordable.  We were very happy with how they styled our home and I doubt we would have achieved such a great sale result without their help. Thanks again girls!"

Julia Farquhar, Seven Hills

 

"Josie promptly came to the house when I called, she had excellent ideas and instilled confidence in me that Simplify was the right company for the job. I was on a very tight timeframe to get my house listed and I was so pleased I went ahead with Simplify as they were able to meet the deadline and do so in such a friendly, happy and relaxed manner. The house looked amazing and it sold in under a week. An outstanding outcome."

Liz Wilkinson, Clayfield

 

"From the first call to Simplify, right through to completion of the job I was blown away with the wonderful service they provided. The entire team made everything so simple and the result was AMAZING! Nothing was too much trouble and would absolutely recommend their expertise. Thanks and kind regards."
Kerry Douglas, Ascot

 

"Wanting to pass on our sincere thanks for your fabulous work in styling our property for sale. It came up amazingly and we sold it within the first week of opens! Thank you for being so responsive and efficient also – made the sales process (particularly from afar in Sydney), so much more seamless. Thanks again!"

Helen & Ryan Pearce, Clayfield

 

"After using Simplify recently to sell my family home, I would never sell a property without consulting them. With our home online for less than 24 hours before our first open house, we had 5 written offers within 4 days, all above asking price. The benefits of having Simplify style our home could not be over-stated. Their service was exemplary, nothing was too hard and all the girls were extremely pleasant to work with. They even managed to juggle my home styling and furniture hire around my unforeseen hospital visits, and all with a smile. Honestly, you can't go wrong using Simplify. Do it, you won't ever regret your decision."

Andrea Shaw, Carina

 

"We would like to thank you for all your style advice. Amazing what can be achieved, with a different aspect from your experienced and competent team. All worked well and we sold our property."

Jurgen & Gabriele Otto, Redland Bay

 

"We had our house completely styled by Simplify and were so impressed with the final result. It lifted the property and gave it a wow factor which I hadn't thought possible. Josie and her team showed great attention to detail and were able to tie the furniture and soft furnishings in with the rooms beautifully. Our house had several offers and sold after just three open homes. By far the most stress-free and effective way to sell a property. Thanks Josie and Simplify - awesome job!"

Nicole Smith, Hamilton

 

"When we decided to sell our home after working so hard to renovate, we wanted to present it beautifully.  Josie, Deb and Tracy took all of the stress out of getting our home styled and ready. The girls worked around the mess we had and guided us to the perfect mix of what we already had and what we needed to add to give each of the rooms a purpose and sophisticated look.  Their friendly, no fuss approach ensured the process end to end was a breeze.  We sold in 10 days!"

Jessica Sharpe, Newmarket

 

"Thanks for your help with the recent sale of our home in Ashgrove.  I really appreciated your professionalism, flexibility and quality of the work you did in preparing and dressing our beautiful home for sale.  I found it a delight to work with you and right from the first time you came to our house to talk about how you could assist, I felt confident that you would help us make our home look amazing and attractive to potential buyers.  Thanks again for giving us such a fantastic service – we have already recommended you to friends and family considering selling their homes and will keep doing so."

Alex Wright, Ashgrove

 

"I wanted to put in writing what an absolute pleasure it was to have met you all and worked with you in achieving my vision. Having to sell 2 homes in the last 6 months I can honestly say I could not have done it without you! From our first meeting I was confident you would be able to deliver the “wow” factor I had imagined – but the end results exceeded all of my expectations – SPECTACULAR!!

Your professionalism and service was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, and the attention to detail was truly amazing. I have no hesitation in recommending your services which are a guaranteed way of ensuring your home reaches its full potential. Thanks again for a truly unique and creative experience."

Colette North, Graceville

 

“We had already purchased another house, and with three very young children we knew that trying to keep an orderly house for inspections was going to be very stressful and pretty much impossible. We decided to move out and then put our place on the market, so selling our property quickly and getting the best price possible was important.

While looking at properties to buy we noticed that although the 'house' is important, the styling of the house often gave it the lasting impression. Leaving our house empty would probably do it no favours. I knew little about styling properties for sale, but the team at Simplify were brilliant. They discussed what would look best for our house, maximising space, avoiding clutter, lighting, comfy chairs, colours, even the pictures, accessories and magazines!

They also helped to work within a budget that would suit us, utilising what we could of our furniture to minimise cost. It was all very easy, and the end result is that the house looked fabulous (I could have brought it myself again!!) and we sold it in 5 days of it being on the market. Although difficult to quantify in cost, we think it was worth every dollar spent on the styling and certainly helped us get more money than we could have hoped for.”

Nicky Small, Paddington

 

"We were delighted with the service from Simplify Property Styling. Our house was styled in a way that was not over the top, but enabled the key selling points to shine through. Everything was done in a professional way with the quote, delivery, styling and collection of furniture done in quick turnaround and as arranged. Living in another city, it was fantastic to not have to worry about our investment property looking great for sale. The house was sold in its first weekend on the market!"

Kate Gellweiler, Tarragindi

 

“Once again the girls from Simplify have delivered! Having used Simplify 4 years ago with our home selling on the first open day with a record price for the suburb, there were no doubts about enlisting their help once again. Not only are they professional and lovely people to work with but are absolutely brilliant at what they do. We were thrilled with our sale price and it was achieved within 3 weeks of our home going on the market. Thank you to your talented team!”

Kerry & Nev Weir, Grange

 

"Our Agent had recommended Simplify to us - we received two quotations and went with Simplify as we liked what they had done with styling previous houses. We were living interstate and Simplify made it easy for us as they managed everything, including selecting furniture and coordinating delivery and removal.  I had some communication throughout this process, however, did not have to worry about anything as knew what was happening and all timeframes were met. Thank you for making it easy for us."

Juliana Davies, Newmarket

 

"WOW! A huge thank you to the Simplify team for creating such an amazing transformation of our house! You added class and style to every room which we could never have achieved. Your creative style and assistance contributed strongly to us selling our house within a week of it going on the market. It was an absolute pleasure working with you all and you made the process effortless for us in a time that was stressful. Thank you and we wouldn't hesitate to use you again."

Caroline Brumby, Ashgrove

 

"We recently had very little time to prepare our home for sale, and were so appreciative of the approach of the Simplify team. They were so efficient and effective, from the first phone call to the final collection of items from our home, they were professional and client focused. I had initially been sceptical regarding the value of using an interior design company. However, we were really pleased we did so. The team really made it all so much easier and less stressful.

Their advice was well researched, their co-ordination of hire furniture was stress free and the overall result was very cost efficient. From being initially hesitant to invest the funds in this aspect of selling our home, we were totally convinced as to the benefits – not only from the benefits to the sale, but also the co-ordination and the no effort approach. Every interaction I had with each team member was an absolute pleasure as they delivered quietly, without impact and made the whole sale so much easier. Thanks to the team at Simplify. I would recommend you without hesitation, you were all fantastic."

Lee Callum, The Grange

 

"I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and talent you all  have for making my house look amazing. You effortlessly transformed it into something beautiful.  Thanks girls for making the sale so easy with a house that looked incredible. You are legends!"

Kerrie Miller, Bulimba

 

“It was with great pleasure that I dealt with the fabulous girls from Simplify. From beginning to end the process was seamless and fast. My home sold within a few short weeks on the market and many people commented very favourably to my real estate agent on the furnishings and layout (all suggested and done by the Simplify team). I wish I had thought of this years ago. Once they worked their creative magic my household instantly became more harmonious. I will be using their services again in my new home – get it right from the start! It’s not just the selling stage but new beginnings as well. I cannot recommend this team highly enough”.

Felicity Brown, Clayfield

 

“The Simplify team was excellent to deal with, professional, prompt and trustworthy. They were able to seamlessly blend pieces of our own furniture and accessories (photographs, books, etc) with hired pieces and their own accessories to create a stunning presentation for the sale of our house. Their eye for detail and use of space meant that the best aspects of the house were highlighted to buyers. Feedback from the real estate agent, friends and buyers was excellent. We couldn't believe it was the same house once they were finished! We would highly recommend Simplify to anyone, and know that they contributed to the sale of our house”.

Chelsey Newland, Windsor

 

"I recently sold my family home after 25 years. It was a lovely home but a bit tired and in need of a lift in order to present well. Simplify was recommended to me. They came in one morning after I had gone to work and when I came home – WOW! I could not believe how wonderful the house looked. It sold after the first open house a few days later and I am sure the greatly improved look had a big part to play. I would highly recommend Simplify and would definitely use them again."

Deb Carmody, The Grange

 

"Thank you so much for weaving your magic today. My daughter's home looks awesome. The r/e agent was blown away at the metamorphosis, thank you once again."

Terri Newman, Rochedale South

 

"Thank you for your wonderful service – we are sure it contributed greatly to the successful sale of our property."

Bronwyn Zorgdrager, Annerley

 

"Just wanted to say what a great outfit you are running. I truly believe your simple-but-effective styling helped me to sell my house as smoothly and quickly as I could. You also worked with me to use what I had, where possible, and were very flexible when things didn't always go as planned! Friendly and professional is a great combination and you guys had it in spades. Job well done - definitely worthwhile!"

Clare Isaac, Mt Gravatt East

 

"Simplify helped to present our house in a way that maximised our sale price. They were very helpful and professional, and we highly recommend them. Thanks!”

Kristy Zropf, Wynnum

 

“Simplify - as the name implies, made the selling of our home so much easier.  The lovely ladies, Josie, Deb and Tracy arrived early in the morning (cars overloaded) and departed about midday, leaving behind a stunning result. Whilst incorporating many of our own accessories their additional decorative touches were tasteful and admirably suited our taste.  The exercise was painless, the result successful - a beautiful house which sold prior to auction.  Thank you ladies."

Jan Benjamin, Sunnybank

 

"I would like to thank Simplify so much for turning our house into a home with great style and character. It looked like something out of a magazine. We sold our house at the first open home with multiple offers because it was presented so well for sale. I have already recommended you to several friends and colleagues and will definitely call you next time we sell, thank you so much."

Shaun Spooner, Geebung

 

"Lyn and I would  like to let you know how impressed we were in our dealings with you to date…… Thank you so much for being ‘Trouble-Free’ during what is a rather stressful time selling a home. When we sold our Toowong home you may recall that we were very hesitant about committing the additional cost for your service, but it dressed the home up so well we are convinced it made a huge positive change to the way prospective buyers saw the attributes of the home.  

Consequently, when we moved from St Lucia there was no hesitation and we called you immediately we decided to put our home on the market.  Of course this time it was no surprise to watch the professionalism and care with which you approached the task.  The home looked fabulous with all the little touches to bring out the best in the homes’ presentation.  Another terrific success!!!

So thank you very much.  We very much enjoyed working with you, and we wish you all the very best of success with your business."

Kevin & Lyn Goodwin, St Lucia (repeat clients)

 

"I believe home styling is a good idea, but when I heard about the cost of it I was hesitant.  I was uncertain as to whether we would see a 'return on the investment' given the fragile state of residential property market.  

We really needn't have worried, because with the help of Simplify Home Styling and Kevin Manning Real Estate we achieved a sale price some $70,000 more than we had anticipated, within 7 days of listing. Not only did the furnishings look amazing, it turned out to be a very worthwhile investment indeed! Thank you again."

Hilary Troy, Mansfield


"I now know why the girls chose Simplify for their business name... they effortlessly took our home of mismatched furnishings and replaced them with a style that reflected our newly renovated property. Their step by step guidance and flexibility made what could be an overwhelming task a breeze.  It is without doubt that the small investment was well and truly recouped by the price tag achieved and quick sale of our property. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this efficient, value-for-money service to anyone serious about selling their property."

Darren Macpherson, Bulimba

 

"We moved out of our home to be closer to our children’s high school.  The intention was to rent out this home for the duration.  The house did not rent and we were suddenly forced to change gears and put the property up for sale instead.
 
We contacted Simplify and they were able to respond very quickly, evaluating the variety of spaces we needed to stage to show our quirky and unusually shaped house to maximum effect as the comfortable family home it was.  The ladies at Simplify also managed, despite a very busy month and the start of school holidays, to install the furniture and accessories within a short time frame.  The effect on our house was immediately inviting and clearly engaging as the property was sold within a week to buyers who had viewed it at the first open house, and we secured a price above our expectations. We believe, in anyone’s assessment, this outcome could only be viewed as 'mission accomplished!' Minimal fuss, maximum impact and value for money."
 
Natalie Denning, Carina Heights

 

"The ladies at Simplify were very helpful in styling our home for sale. They looked at our home with fresh eyes and came up with ideas for the rooms which we hadn't thought of. They were also open to our own ideas and compromised if we didn't feel comfortable with anything they had suggested. Selling our much loved home was very stressful for us but the lovely ladies at Simplify were very considerate of our feelings and they made the whole experience go smoothly and effortlessly. I am convinced we wouldn't have received the selling price we did if it wasn't for their amazing styling ideas."

Oriana & Darryl Seccombe, Wavell Heights

 

"Thank you for the amazing transformation of my investment property – from an empty shell to a stylish, modern family home! Your attention to detail and quality of furnishings presented well and created a warm feeling that I have no doubt, added value in sale price of the home. From the start, you were so easy to work with, and always prompt and professional. I will certainly use your services when I sell another investment property. Thank you!"

Gayle Hancock, Wilston

 

"Thank you to Josie and the team at Simplify - you made the entire process of preparing our property for sale so easy! The place looked its absolute best - with modern, fresh and spacious styling. This generated a lot of buyer interest - we were fortunate to receive multiple offers in our first week on the market! Thank you again!"

Penny, Coorparoo

 

"We recently sold our property for exactly the amount we had hoped for and are very grateful to Simplify for their outstanding help. As interstate sellers, they arranged for the inspection of our unit as well as the delivery and pick up of all furniture and soft furnishings via our agent. The process was hassle-free and the result was excellent. They did a fabulous job and we would be happy to recommend the Simplify team to anyone with a blank canvas that needs beautifying."

Trish Davidson, West End/Melbourne

 

"I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful job you did in styling our property. What you achieved far exceeded our expectations. The house looked stunning, everything flowed together and you made some awkward spaces not only look good but turned them into very usable spaces. The market response to the house was awesome, the photos looked amazing and the house sold very quickly. I have no doubt that the way the house was presented was fundamental in achieving this result. The investment in Simplify was by far the best investment we made in preparing our house for sale. Thanks again, see you next time!!"

Judy & Alan Walker, Tarragindi

 

"We would highly recommend the team at Simplify for your pre-sale makeover.  These ladies understand the pressure that the sale of your home brings and along with that empathy, they have amazing styling ideas.  We absolutely loved what they did with our place. Our house never looked as good as it did in the last 8 weeks of our life there!"

Therese Stuckey, Highgate Hill

 

"Our neighbours recently sold their home and used Simplify to style it. They were most impressed with their professionalism and the manner in which the house was presented, and it sold within a week. Somewhat reluctantly, we decided to follow their lead. We contacted Deb and Josie who came for the initial consultation and grand tour and then departed to formulate a plan. Some of the traditional furniture, rugs, lamps, etc. were stored and the remaining pieces blended with newly hired items - this took a whole day with four stylists working tirelessly to achieve the desired result.

The transformation was miraculous with great emphasis on better furniture placement, making the house appear more open and spacious and yet managing to display some of our treasured, quirky items accumulated over the years. We were most grateful for their "fresh eyes" approach and the sensitivity with which they delivered their advice in storing some of our most loved items - not an easy task! We were impressed with the final presentation of the house as was the agent.

For the cost of a few extra dollars the expertise and professionalism of the Simplify team relieved the overwhelming stress associated with preparing the house for sale and the outcome.... two contracts on offer within 2-3 days of it being listed on the market."

Jan Guest, Paddington

 

“We were absolutely delighted with your efforts and the results. Thanks again for all your help.”

Graeme Thomas, Tingalpa

 

"Oh my goodness I'm blown away, it looks fantastic. You have obviously worked so hard. Thank you thank you thank you. You are awesome. I love it. You are definitely helping me style my next home for me to live in."

Christine Barker, Jamboree Heights

 

"Just wanted to let you know how much you helped in the sale of our house. It had been valued at 1.3 million but it didn't have that million-dollar-feel. Our furniture was nice and of good quality, yet it still wasn't looking the best it could. It was great how you used my furniture and soft furnishings, along with your own items, to make the house match the price tag. We are convinced that we got more money due to your professional help. Thanks again for all that you have done!"

Liz Morgan, Thornlands

 

"Simplify (an unusual name) was introduced to us by our agent. One could also add 'seamless' as the girls transformed our family home into a sales show piece. We exceeded our our sales expectations and sold the property at auction. Don't get hung up on the cost - it works out as a small percentage of the overall exercise. Thanks for your professional hassle-free commitment to our sales plan."

Paul & Gill Richardson, Tingalpa

 

“We have been extremely happy with your services. It takes a load off our minds knowing we have a company like yours organising everything for us.”

Jane Phillips, Brookfield (living in Hong Kong) 

 

“We know we have thanked you, but we wish to say a big thank you once again for the stunning job you have done on our house. It truly is amazing what can be done when you know how. You girls really know your stuff and it all turned out beautifully. You were a joy to have in our home and it was quite an experience watching it all come together. We are enjoying living here as it is like having a lovely holiday. One of our neighbours intends to have you style her home when she is ready to sell in a few years as she was so impressed with your work. Our love and best wishes to you and continuing success with your business.” 

Margaret & Les Savage, Forest Lake

 

“This is the first time I had used a property stylist and wasn’t sure what to expect. From our initial meeting Simplify impressed me with their ideas and enthusiasm. When I looked at the house it was old, tired and in need of some work. When the Simplify ladies were finished everyone went ‘wow this is fantastic’. I am certain that their expert work helped sell the house on the first open inspection.”

Leo Tellam, Jamboree Heights

 

"Simplify prepared our house for sale and made it look great. We were delighted with the easy communication, prompt responses and felt the prices were excellent value. Our property was advertised Friday, open home Saturday morning, and we had a signed contract by 8.00pm Saturday evening. People who had not intended to buy just yet 'fell-in-love-with-the-place.' Simplify’s contribution to the presentation of the house was a major factor in this. We would certainly use them again and have already recommended them to others."

Colin & Robyn Trethewey, Rochedale South

 

"We are so happy with Simplify for your amazing work in styling our house which we recently sold. You were so easy to deal with, always professional and producing superior results. The shots look fabulous on the internet, your team worked miracles! Thank you so much!”

Greg & Leonie Whatling, Coorparoo

 

“Simplify did a wonderful job revamping our home to appeal to the largest market possible. Josie's advice on using existing furniture and fittings where possible kept the price down and it couldn't have been easier. I would highly recommend Simplify to anyone wishing to sell their home.”

Joanna Spanjaard, Toowong

 

“Simplify instantly knew exactly what was needed to make our home appealing to potential buyers. The team came in after their initial visit and transformed the house, we almost wanted to stay! Thanks to the Simplify team, we had a sale within 10 days. I wouldn't hesitate in using Simplify again”.

Jenny Trembath, Camp Hill

 

“We wanted to thank you for your fantastic efforts in styling our home. Your professionalism showed from our initial enquiry, you took care of everything which gave us one less thing to stress about. We had a contract on the property within the first week, and they wanted to buy the furniture with the house. I think that says it all. We would strongly recommend your services to anyone wanting to sell their property”.

Brad & Cheryl Crowe, Belmont

 

“We recently used the girls at ‘Simplify’ to enhance the presentation of our house for sale. And enhance it they certainly did! Their use of space and furniture for a particular area accompanied with the added flare of soft furnishings made our property look like it was out of a magazine. In particular their attention to detail impressed me. But by far the most impressive thing was that it was predominantly done using furnishings and decorator items we already had in the house... just presented and placed in a way to create a lot more “WOW”. I would be happy to recommend them and will definitely use them again.”

Lucas Nicoll, Holland Park

 

“We are blown away and completely speechless... and that is rare! The house looks perfect - warm and happy but still sophisticated. I adore the way you have combined some of our things - like the books and toys and pictures - with your beautiful things and the hire furniture. Thank you all very much!”

Kelly & Graham Wick, West End

 

“Please accept our sincere thanks for the excellent makeover your team did yesterday. We were really impressed to view the difference when we got the photos back. Once again congratulations to your team... (and I heard my little one too was excited with your friendly presence).”

Jaymon Thomas, Springfield Lakes

 

"To Everyone at Simplify, I would just like to thank you for an amazing job. Without your guidance and understanding of how my house needed to look, I'm sure our sale would not have been so successful. I would highly recommend your business to anyone selling their house - it made my life so much easier."

Tracey Duggan, Eatons Hill

 

“We have two small children (and a lot of toys!), so the prospect of getting our house ready for sale and keeping it relatively clutter free and well-presented was daunting.  We decided to contact the team at Simplify to help.  Josie and Deb were great at coming up with simple ideas to arrange our existing furniture and décor to show off the house in its best light.   They helped us put the finishing touches on the house to get it ready for open day and made the whole process as pain free as possible.  We ended up signing a contract on our house five days after it was first listed!!  Thanks!”

Janine Deakin, Wooloowin

 

“When our agent suggested that we could maximise the sale price of our home by using the services of a professional stylist we were more than a little sceptical.  After having met with Deb, Josie and their incredible team we decided that our already beautiful home maybe could do with a little improving. What we weren’t prepared for was the stunning transformation that occurred.  The girls from Simplify saw our space in a brand new light and added just the right pieces to show it off to its fullest potential. We have no doubt that the styling of our property by Simplify was one of the reasons our house sold so quickly and at a great price.  My advice to all of our friends looking to sell their house, especially in a tough market, is easy – call Simplify.

Deb and Josie, I want to thank you for your openness and honesty (a rare find in business these days); for your incredible professionalism and most of all your amazing creative ability to see the potential in any room.  I had so much fun watching the house come together and if you decide to move across to interior design,  call me - my new house could do with the Simplify touch! I wish you all the best with your business.”

Tasha Hall, Carindale

 

"We are extremely happy with our experience with Simplify. We found the staff knowledgeable and very pleasant to deal with. Their expertise, enthusiasm, design flair and attention to detail was first class. We have no doubt that our property would not have sold without them and we highly recommend them."

Trish & Den Sleeman, Toowong

 

"Thank you Simplify for the part you played in the sale of our property. Having moved out prior to going on the market we were glad we engaged you to furnish and decorate the property, to give it that lived-in feel. We are certain that what you did created a lot of interest from buyers and played a part in the successful sale on auction day."

Libby & Ward Gough, Wilston

 

"Just wanted to let you know how much you helped the sale of our house. Our house had been valued at 1.3 million but it didn't have that million dollar feel. Our furniture was nice and of good quality, yet it still wasn't looking the best it could. It was great how you used my furniture and soft furnishings, along with your own items, to make the house match the price tag. We are convinced that we got more money due to your professional help. Thanks again for all that you have done!"

Liz Morgan, Thornlands

 

“I cannot speak highly enough of Simplify’s creativity and professionalism in preparing our unit for sale. I am sure the way that your firm presented the unit was a critical part of the successful sale. In our dealings you were always cooperative and professional in your approach and the cost of your service was very reasonable for the outcome achieved.”

Tom Fenwick, Milton

 

"To the girls at Simplify:  We gave you very short notice (1 week to open home) with lots to do and a tight budget, asked to you mix and match in with our own style but didn’t give you much of a brief.  However you offered excellent advice and provided great solutions. You were so easy to work with and the outcome was just as we hoped – the house looked great and sold very quickly (first open house).  We are very happy customers and absolutely recommend Simplify."

Jenny & Evan Woodward, Alderley

 

“I had a job convincing my husband that we should use a property stylist to help us to prepare our house for sale.  After seeing the results he was astounded at the fantastic end result (to the point of reconsidering our decision to sell!) and a convert.  We are convinced it helped generate great internet interest and a fantastic turnout to our first open home resulting in a number of offers which allowed us to settle in the second week of the campaign prior to auction.  We will certainly use them for further property sales in the future.”

Dr Trang Howarth, Paddington

 

“I am told that selling your home is one of the most stressful experiences in life and whilst I agree, it doesn't necessarily have to be a dreadful experience.  Enter.... the girls from Simplify. They came and worked out how best to 'make-over' our home, discussed it with us and once we were comfortable with the concept, quoted very reasonably. So we went with their recommendation. The girls arrived at the allotted time on the agreed day and re-arranged much of our existing furniture, replacing some with modern furniture and adding soft furnishings, lamps, art work and finishing touches.  The transformation was remarkable and we received lots of very positive feedback!! On the day of the auction, there was an astonishing number of people swarming through our house, We had 8 registered bidders making some very enthusiastic bids and whilst the house was passed in,  we signed a contract several days later, giving us our best possible price. Mission accomplished... Thank you!”

Nanette & Michael Gower, Mt Ommaney

 

"After having had the benefit of Simplify's assistance in the smooth and successful sale of my 5-bedroom house, I naturally contacted them again two years later for the sale of my 2- bedroom unit. In a very difficult market, Simplify made it stand out from the crowd. We achieved a huge amount of interest and consequently a swift sale, and to my relief, a great price. I have absolutely no doubt that their effort expedites any sale and maximises the sale price. I also rely upon their calm confidence and professionalism throughout the process and quite simply would not consider selling any properties without them."

Jane Meadows, The Pinnacle, Roma Street Parklands

 

"Josie, Deb & Tracy, thanks for a fantastic job in presenting our property for sale. Your creativity and style transformed a clinical, empty property into an inviting home for prospective buyers. Your professionalism delivered in a friendly manner made it a pleasure to do business with you."

Russell Cole, Lutwyche

 

“You guys did an amazing job! You must have worked so hard. A huge thank you.”

Vicky Todd, Pullenvale

 

“From the first phone call to the collection of items, the girls from Simplify were a delight to deal with. Friendly, helpful, professional and most importantly very talented. I had no idea my house could look so beautiful. I was able to present our much loved family home confidently knowing it looked its best. It was easy, simple and a great experience. I would recommend this service to anyone wanting to show off what is best about their property.”

Anne Walker, Corinda

 

“Thanks for your assistance in presenting our unit on Bribie for sale in such an attractive way. The uncluttered look complimented the lovely views. I thought your work invaluable in selling our property and can only suggest that you target these multi-complexes and get your name out there even more.  Good luck to you in the future and I’ll be in touch when we do it all again!”

Linda Beaumont, Bribie Island

 

"The team at Simplify were great to deal with... professional and efficient. Their creativity in furnishing my property made it as appealing as possible to prospective purchasers. I would definitely recommend their services to others."

David Gonano, Petrie Terrace

 

“The thought of putting my house on the market was overwhelming.  I knew it had potential to look fabulous, but just did not know where to start.  My mismatched furniture and half-attempted interior design, had me a little embarrassed.

The girls at Simplify were amazing. The first day the girls visited, I knew I had done the right thing.  They were able to use the majority of my own things, but just in a different room or for another use. A picture I had in the living room actually looked much better in my daughter’s room and matched in perfectly, but I had never seen it that way. The team did a beautiful make-over that had me doubting whether I actually wanted to sell.

The girls are all very down to earth, prompt, reliable, understanding and most of all they did not expect me to pay thousands of dollars to have my home looking good. The house sold in six weeks.  The feedback from potential buyers was that we had it decorated beautifully, but they didn’t know my secret – SIMPLIFY.”

Amanda Thornton, Raby Bay

 

“Thanks again for your help.  I think it made a big difference in getting my property sold so quickly.”

Paul Ryan, Petrie Terrace

 

“I would recommend Simplify to anyone who is looking to give their property that finishing touch which could be the difference between a sale and potentially having it sitting on the market for months. Their well-organised, prompt service is a breath of fresh air. My property sold at the first open house!”

Lyndon Douglas , Wynnum (living in Tasmania)

 

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for dressing our house and doing such a great job with it. It has made a big difference. It is now very impressing when it is presented to prospective buyers. All your efforts are truly appreciated. Thanks once again."

Vickram & Vasavi Arcot, Mt Ommaney (living overseas)

 

“Mum loves her new house, she was in heaven in her bedroom last night and thought it was just gorgeous! Fabulous, funny thing is that mum is so happy with her new look that she actually doesn't want any of her old stuff back. She absolutely loves, loves, loves her bedroom, it does look amazing. Thank you all again, house is amazing and mum now wants to start shopping for all her lovely new things so it has actually made her move to our house easier.”

Loretta Murphy, Wynnum

 

“Dear Josie and your wonderful team,  just a note to say a huge thank you for your superb efforts yesterday. Our house looks amazing and I'm still walking around saying 'why didn't I do that?!’ With your help I'm hoping for the perfect sale. Thanks again.”

Jennie Gribble, Alderley

 

“We had moved out of the country before the house went for sale and everyone knows that an empty house does not present as well as one with furniture. Luckily, through the services of Simplify, our home was professionally beautified and as such we achieved great interest with a successful sale to follow. We highly recommend their services.”

Jill & Riette Mulder, Mitchelton (living overseas) 

 

“Dear Josie, Deb & Tracy, thank-you so much for all your hard work, effort and attention to detail in preparing Dad's house for sale. What was a very difficult time for our family was made much easier by your help, knowledge and artistic flair. The house never looked so good, and the extremely complimentary feedback received not only from prospective and final buyers, but family and friends also attests to a huge success. I will definitely recommend your services in the future. Many thanks to all the Team.”

Edwina Gulson, Ascot


“We would like to thank the SIMPLIFY TEAM for their fantastic work in transforming a very tired looking house into a dream! It sold within two weeks for more than the asking price-we were so thrilled!!!! We couldn’t have done it without you - so thank you so very much for being so professional and lovely to deal with.”

Jasminka & Denise Kreis, Murrarie

 

“You girls are geniuses!  Thank you so much for all you advice on how to present our house better.  The whole place looked amazing last night.  We cannot thank you enough.  If it takes a while to sell this time, it certainly won't be because of anything you girls did. Thank you so much.”

Peter & Helen Campbell, Manly

 

“You guys have done a brilliant job.  It looks fantastic! Really does lift the look of the house to a whole new level.”

Chris McManus, Windsor


"The property went online on Thursday last week and we got our first offer on Friday. We had an open house on Saturday and received four more offers, one of which we accepted! Two days on the market - not bad!! And we got $20,000 above what we were willing to accept! Credit to you guys!!!"

Kimberley Pederson, Albany Creek

 

“Miracles do happen, and they are definitely in the form of the Simplify Team. From the very first contact and in-house consultation, I knew that I’d made the right choice by inviting Simplify to restyle our home to achieve the results I wanted at our forthcoming open houses and auction.  The Simplify Girls effortlessly recreated, highlighted and emphasized ordinary furniture and areas of our home and literally transformed them into amazing livable works of art. To have the Simplify Team recreate our home was an unbelievably stress-free and uniquely fun experience, whilst achieving stunningly beautiful results.  The first call on anyone’s list looking to sell their home, should be that of The Simplify Team. The outcomes they achieve need to be seen to be believed, as they are in one word…..   Breathtaking!”

Vikki Done, Upper Kedron

 

 “Thank you for styling and preparing our home for sale at Gordon Park. Our house looked so beautiful we wondered whether we should be selling it at all! Your professionalism, expertise and relaxed attitude was wonderful and I was amazed at how you and your team pulled together such fantastic looks for each room. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simplify for anyone wanting to sell their home. Would love to get you in to style my new home in the future! All the best girls, you've got a great thing going on!”

Tracy Johnston, Group Editor Style Magazines

 

“The Simplify team was extremely efficient and lovely to deal with. Nothing was a problem and they came through with an extremely simplified version of our home. They successfully removed all the clutter from our lives and the modern layout assisted greatly with the sale of our house. Thanks!”

Susanne & Kevin Walsh, Albany Creek
 

“We were truly happy with the work that you did to our home to make it comfortable but up-to-date with some of the latest trends in home decorating.  The house looked great and we got the SALE that we were hoping for.  We will certainly use your services again in the future if we require some ideas for our next home.”

Renee Nichols, Camp Hill
 

“We would like to thank you and your staff very much for your expertise in home décor.  The furniture you arranged for us to hire really suited the house, and the final touch ups were the icing on the cake. You did such a wonderful job dressing our home that the first people who came through the door bought it. Couldn’t have done it without you.”

Susan Lew, Toowong
 

“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your efforts.  It is an incredible transformation!  And I was so thankful for the spare light-bulb which we needed just before the shoot.  Many thanks again.”

Hennie Gaffney, Toowong
 

“You transformed a less-than-perfect duckling into a sensational swan! Your professionalism was above and beyond what I expected and the nicest thing about the whole transformation was your friendly and easy going manner which made the whole project one big adventure. It was sensational to come into a room and to see the vision you had for that space. My only regret is that I didn't know about you years before we sold as I would have been able to enjoy the results of your creativity for much longer.”

Carmel Barratt, Alderley
 

“Josie and Debra from Simplify did a fantastic job styling the vacant house we recently sold at Gaythorne. While the house itself was a renovated Queenslander, the work the girls did in styling the house into a home took it to the next level!  The home looked fabulous and the potential buyers agreed - we had three interested parties and a contract on the property within three days of listing it - all during a time that the market was supposed to be slow! If anyone reading this is considering selling their home empty, talk to Simplify first, you will be very glad you did. Thanks girls - I will be back!”

Patricia McNamara, Grange
 

“Thank you to all the team at Simplify.  The girls came to my home with fresh eyes and amazing ideas.  The home was beautiful yet comfortable and not overly styled.  With their help we achieved a great price at auction. Many thanks again.”

Marianne Kennedy, Camp Hill
 

“The team from Simplify was great in getting the right finishing touches - our house looked fantastic for sale.  They were on time and extremely professional in their approach.”

Kym Dixon, Windsor

 

“Thank you for your assistance in styling our house for the recent selling campaign.  Your advice and supply of quality items assured the house was presented to the market looking wonderful.  Your prompt, friendly and professional service was much appreciated.”

Bernie Kenny, Windsor
 

“The input from your organisation assisted significantly in the interest and subsequent sale of our house.  We found the input and service to be cost effective, using our own furniture when appropriate and we found the end result showed the true attributes of our house.  The service itself was seamless, geared to busy people such as ourselves and very efficient and proactive.  Overall, excellent client service.”

Lesley Morris, Clayfield
 

“I was delighted with your service and the way my property was revamped and presented.  I had four offers in four days ultimately selling for full asking price with no conditions.  I run a business and time is of the essence in all that I do. All liaisons with Simplify were timely and honest. The service you provide and the ideas you offer are highly recommended and good value – it was worth every penny.  I was very attached to the house and selling it was emotional, you made the whole process painless and easy.  Your ideas and flair are great, please thank your team.  I have already highly recommended you to everyone I know.”

Julie Parsons, Samford
 

“I wanted to thank you all for the great work you did for us.  We are certain that we would not have secured such a positive result without your assistance.”

Belinda Hughes, Lutwyche
 

“Josie, Deb and Tracy provided an excellent service which made an enormous difference to our home.  I really appreciated their highly organised but calm approach, which reassured me that we were in very capable hands.  We were delighted with the results!”

Ann Riley, Brookfield
 

“There are many reasons to recommend Simplify:

·          quick response to request for styling

·          friendly, personalised service

·          excellent design skills, resulting in complimentary pieces

·          flexibility with regard to budget and style

·          excellent follow-up attention

·          prompt delivery and removal

I would certainly engage Simplify again and have no hesitation in recommending Simplify to prospective clients.”

Julie Stone, Toowong

 

“We've signed a contract. Thank you for helping us present our house to its best potential.”

Danielle Banks, Annerley

 

“The Simplify Ladies were great to work with; they are friendly, responsive, and flexible. They also made the most of our own furniture. The result was just amazing. The Simplify team totally transformed the house ready for sale.”

Sharon York, Bardon

 

“I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful work that you did at my property.  I had two offers on the day of the first open house and signed a contract the next day - the house was on the market for only four days.  I'm sure this was due primarily to the wonderful presentation – thanks again.”

Ellen Doherty, Chermside
 

“The girls from Simplify are truly talented in what they do.  They are great at enhancing and preparing a property for sale.  Simplify was able to minimise a lot of the stress that comes along with selling a property.  I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell their property.”

Dr Adeline Ng, Taringa
 

“We not only found Josie and Debra of Simplify provided an excellent service, but also they were very cost effective. The difference to the presentation of our home was amazing and they achieved this within 24 hours of our initial interview. We would recommend their services to anyone wishing to give their home a fresh look when selling.”

Ian & Glenda Forster, Ashgrove
 

“After using the girls at Simplify to style our home we started to wonder why we were selling at all!  The house looked amazing and attracted plenty of attention.  The end result was a great price at auction.  Thanks ladies!”

Ailsa Dobson, St Lucia
 

 “We were amazed at how spacious and up to date our riverfront unit looked after the Simplify team had done their magic.  The unit had never been presented better and we were half inclined to take it off the market after its Simplify makeover.  We achieved a record result at auction which might not have been the case had Simplify not been commissioned to de-clutter and enhance the décor.  We recommend the Simplify stylists to anyone thinking of selling a residential property.”

Denise Britton, St Lucia

 

"I would like to thank you for making my home look wonderful. We now have a contract on the house!"

Debbie Joslin, Middle Park

 

“I recently engaged Simplify to give my unit a make-over prior to a valuation inspection. Even though the unit was renovated it certainly needed some creative flair. That’s where Josie and Debra came into the picture. Their expert eyes quickly saw all the areas that needed beautifying. They very quickly and efficiently complemented the existing decor and created some special features as focal points, you know the ones that make a room glow. The end result was my unit interior transformed into a stylish yet livable space. As a result my unit valuation exceeded my expectations. I am very happy with Simplify’s professionalism, creativity and down-to-earth approach.”

Illira Margaritis, New Farm
 

“We have had plenty of interest in our property and lots of admiring comments so thank you for you great work.”

Belinda Van Weerdenburg, Paddington

 

“Thank you very much for your photos. We think that you and your team did a very fine job on the furnishings. We are also impressed with the speed that you managed to organise it all. Well done! Also, thank you for allowing my friend in to have a look around. She was very impressed and so I was feeling very comfortable with your work at our house even before I received any photos.”

Tersia, Sherwood (living overseas) 

 

“Our house sold at auction and we wanted to thank you for your contribution. We were impressed with your service and wouldn’t hesitate to use Simplify in the future.  You have done a fantastic job!  Thanks so much, we really love what you have done.”

Toni Yerbury, Mt. Samson
 

“My house sold in the first week for full asking price – a result I am sure is partly due to the styling of Simplify!  The house would definitely not have sold at the price it did without the furnishings.”

Jennie Jackson, St Lucia
 

“Thanks so much for sending the pics thru to us.  It certainly has opened up the apartment - now it is not so cluttered. The balcony looks great, so much more homely and inviting.”

Margaret Lingwood, Hervey Bay (Kangaroo Point investment property)
 

“We have had the house painted inside and out and it looks fantastic. I would love for you to drop in some time and see it - you did a great job for us.”

Alexandra McCallum, Kedron (colour consult)
 

 “Love the Action Plan, and LOVE THE COLOURS!!!! Thank you for your assistance, I really gained so much from both of you. You've got some fantastic ideas and tips and I've already started to put some of these into place.”

Natalie Holzgrefe, Kedron
 

“Wow! Is this my home? It looks awesome, thanks Josie!”

Geoff Teys, St. Lucia

 

"Just wanted to thank you guys, the house looks amazing with the furniture and I'm certain it will make a difference for the sale!"

Alfredo Mendez, Belmont

 

“My empty rental property at Camp Hill had been sitting on the market for a few weeks, but was not getting much interest. I  engaged the services of Simplify to present it in a way that would entice more viewings. On a small budget, they transformed my house into an attractive, liveable space that anyone would love to come home to. Very quickly we had an offer on the house, and the sale I was after. Thank you to the talented team at Simplify, I will definitely be back!”

Alison Gray, Camp Hill

 

"Really happy with your styling Josie as it really shows the house with more possibilities. Thanks so much for arranging it all so quickly. What a whizz you all are!"

Polly Webb, Kenmore Hills
