As a career Real Estate Professional for over 30 years, I’ve seen a lot of changes in the industry. Most important is that 94% of buyers view a home online before ever deciding to see it. A home that is styled and staged is not an option anymore it’s a necessity, if the sellers want to receive maximum exposure leading to a top dollar sale.

 

Jan of Turcotte Interiors understands staging completely. She brings her knowledge of color, proportion and style to every staging job that she does. I know without a doubt my home will shine above the competition online with her talented eye. 

 

Jan is a good listener and understands that a home needs to reflect the occupant. In my case that almost always means editing and augmentation. She’s an expert at what she does but doesn’t come in like a steamroller and take over. The end result is always a home that is still livable and comfortable that my sellers often say they’ve fallen in love with their home again and want to stay!

 

Ultimately a successful interior designer is a collaboration of designer expertise while listening  to the needs of the customer. This is exactly the case when I hired Jan to help me design a color scheme for my own newly remodeled master bathroom. I knew I wanted two different blues, and Jan’s method of bringing oversize color samples really created the visual that made the final selection easy. This is just one of the things that sets Jan Above the Rest in her field. That and a true sense of caring for all her customers puts Jan in a league of her own.

We had the pleasure of working with Jan on a total renovation of a very dated condominium we purchased.   We have worked with decorators in the past.  Even among professional designers Jan stands out as extraordinarily skilled. 

 

She's an excellent listener and communicator who worked with our ideas and overall project goals.  Jan made suggestions that challenged our traditional way of looking at how we decorate.  Never directive and always walking us through choices and options led us to realize how the most subtle change can make such a powerful impact.  She fully understood our vision taking  it from an idea to reality.  She was with us at every step of our project; selecting colors, materials, and watching that our ideas and choices were properly integrated.  Our trust in her ideas produced a look that was better than we could have hoped for. Our home became both beautiful and functional, beyond what we could have ever imagined with our budget.

 

Most importantly, Jan never let us make a mistake.  Her guidance saved us from costly decorating errors.

 

Last but not least, Jan was an absolute delight with whom to work.  We can say that she became more than our decorator, she became a friend.  We could not recommend anyone more highly then Jan Turcotte.

Jan transformed my home.  She listened to what my expectations were and fulfilled every detail.  Her color sense is amazing.  Added to her wonderful talents as a designer and her willingness to help.

I needed her to take a look at some colors my painter had done and was unsure if they were right.  She was there in an instant.  There is no doubt she made my home a beautiful place. 10 stars!

Like many couples, my husband and I disagree on style, color, scale and placement of items in our home. 

We struggled with updating our home’s dated 1990’s decor as a result and kept putting it off.   We needed the

help of a design professional and Jan has been a godsend.   Jan listens to both of our ideas on what we want

and helps to bridge the differences. 

 

Our home has very challenging lighting and Jan’s keen eye has helped us get the colors right, which has not been an easy task.  Jan is personable, easy to work with, very professional and willing to explain why certain choices are better than others.  Her skills in design have really helped my husband because he has a hard time visualizing results; and have helped me because I have a tendency to under scale items.

 

Jan offers solutions that work within our budget, and helps craft a cohesive flow to our home as we continue our updating efforts.  We have been very happy working with Jan and pleased with our results.  I highly recommend Jan

for your design project.

In the summer of 2011 St. Joseph Catholic Church in Placentia enhanced its worship space by refurbishing the pews, installing new kneelers, pew racks, flooring and lighting.  Jan Turcotte was recommended to assist us in choosing the color design for the Church.   Our worship space has been exceedingly augmented by the colors suggested by Jan Turcotte.  The colors selected for our Church from the carpet to the paint convey both warmth and welcome.   

 

Jan was easy and pleasant to interface with.  She far exceeded expectations and paid attention to details.  She began by asking me as the pastor of the Church what I wanted to convey to those who would be gathering for worship and prayer.  She explained why the colors and design of the carpet were suggested and what was being communicated to the individual through them.  In any type of future interior design work I will request the services of Jan Turcotte.
