Melanie Serra testimonials

“Thank you again for the great job you did staging the Conley’s home.  Below is an excerpt from a message she sent to me yesterday:”

“Lucretia, Thank you so much for having Melanie come and stage our house. I just love our “new look”. Don was very happy with the changes. I really think it will make a difference when people view the house and will help us get a buyer quicker.”

“I keep going upstairs and just staring at my middle bedroom. WOW! I am very particular about things and I just love it! What I like is it is so like me but different than I would have ever thought to arrange it!”

“Thank you so much for the session at Southern Comforts East Cobb today.  It was so incredibly helpful to find out that so many services/roles could all be accomplished through one person (staging, color guidance, renovation, redesign, certifications)! I really appreciate your philosophy of working “with” a client & being willing to give as much or as little help as each individual wants.”

“I enjoyed the story of your experience and just had to tell you that I found you to be totally the opposite!  I found that you listened, heard me out about what I was attached to and was not (even listening to my husband Howie’s silly attachments!!), and you were totally delightful to spend time with. Get rid of THAT decorator!”

“Greg and I are so pleased with what you and your students did to our rooms in one afternoon!  Our living room and den are so beautiful.  It is hard to imagine the old “playroom” looking so grown up. The den is cozy now, too.  We never would have thought of that sofa arrangement, but it really works!  It was also exciting to see how you used all the decorative items that I had hiding in deep storage.  Thanks again!”

“After a complete renovation of our home, we needed to hire an interior decorator to help us with the decor. Our architect introduced us to Melanie Serra. Melanie is a true professional and very talented. During the initial design consult she demonstrated great “listening skills” and was very open to our needs and concerns. She immediately understood our style and helped us enhance our modern decor. After previewing our floor plan she provided us with options in how to use and repurpose our existing furniture. She also helped us purchase new furniture, fabrics and accessories. She designed beautiful window treatments and selected the perfect shades to compliment each room. She was proficient and made each step of the process seamless. We are thrilled with the results! Melanie is a keeper we are going to continue to enlist her services.”

“Melanie, Thank you. The house looks great and my wife is happy. For the price of a sofa, we got a new interior to our home. I can’t believe we didn’t have to buy anything in the end. You actually saved us money and gave us a great looking house.”

Melanie, We loved working with you last night! Thank you so much for working with us. We enjoyed it! We found your information on Angie’s List and we’ll be working on a write up ourselves, shortly! By the way, I also loved your website. The detail made me know you were serious about your work. Have a great day and thanks again!

Melanie, I wanted to personally thank you for the fabulous decorating consultation you gave my mother. She loved you, (although what’s not to love) she enjoyed working with you so much! She NEVER uses a decorator, so this was a big step for her. Her room was such a difficult challenge, but you came up with some great ideas and solutions. I can’t thank you enough and will continue to refer you.

I never dreamed I could have a home with so much style (especially considering what you had to work with). You really helped me to figure out what my taste was and focus in on it. My husband is happy with the results as well and he is very hard to please, so that says a lot!

“Melanie came out today and was dynamic! I loved her ideas. I could not get over how thorough she was. She works fast and got so much accomplished in such a short period of time. She is very talented and personable. I really enjoyed working with her and can’t wait to implement all of her suggestions.”

“Stylishly decorated” are the words I longed to read in the real estate sales agents description, instead I read “Lots of potential”. From that point on I knew I would get help in decorating my home. When our family moved from Ohio to Atlanta, I began investigating my options. I found Melanie Serra thru a website search while still in Ohio. I was drawn to her unique concept of starting with what you already have and making it work beautifully in your new space. Melanie was deliberate about understanding our lifestyle and tastes. She developed, with my input, a clear, stylish vision of how to transform our new home. Finally, she freely shared her contacts and resources, know how to make her vision a reality. Working with Melanie, our home was reinvented and we confidently welcome friends and family to enjoy our new space too.”

“As a Luxury Home Real Estate Agent, staging is a top priority for me as well as for my clients. I hired Melanie 5 years ago and had her stage several homes for me. I immediately knew she would be someone I could trust to stage all of my client’s homes before listing them for sale. Melanie’s talent and professionalism has been a key factor in the speed at which my listings sell. Melanie has decluttered rooms, rearranged furniture, staged vacant homes and revitalized less than exciting spaces using what the client already had in creative and innovative ways! I have found Melanie to be professional, pleasant, energetic, always on time, and hardworking with an inspired knowledge of just what today’s buyer and seller is looking for!”

“Melanie Serra, at Interior Revivals, has become vital to my “team”. Staging is a non-negotiable with my listings. With all the competition out there as well as buyers thinking that houses should look like an episode of HGTV, my sellers need all the help they can get. When Melanie stages, the house looks the best it can be and sells faster and for more money than if I did not stage the house. Melanie helps not only my sellers make more money faster but she also makes my job easier.”

“Thank you for you great work and prompt oversight. It looks like your staging decisions made the difference. We had 3 offers in within 8 hours of our house going on the market! Great work! We are very grateful!”

I love how you flipped the living room and dining room, rearranged all the furniture, and pulled a beautiful motif together. It looks amazing. Your awesome….I can’t wait to use you again. I loved it! Thanks again!”
