Testimonials for Laurie with Hartwell Design :
"Laurie assisted my estate home construction company in staging
and ultimately selling one of my spec homes during the toughest
housing market in decades. Creating a home that has that warm, lived
in look is crucial to keeping a buyers interest, especially when its size
is in excess of 10,000 square feet. Thats a lot of empty space. Combine this with an already tight budget and the task becomes a difficult one.
Hartwell Design was instrumental in bringing my project to life
with her eye for detail, decor savy taste,
and ability to deliver within budget.
