I was thrilled to be informed yesterday that Suze Interiors had received the 2018 Houzz award for “Service”. It’s one thing to do a good job for your clients, but the most important thing for me is giving great customer service while you’re doing it, which I feel really is the key to any successful business, combined with loving what you do of course. Having gone to school for Hotel Management in my previous life & working in the hospitality industry [...]
One of the most important things to remember when you are getting your home ready to sell, is to make sure that the rooms show what they are intended to be used for.

We have several seconds to make a first impression, and how can we possibly make a good impression without furniture, artwork & pretty accessories? All of which help highlight the features of the home, create warmth & interest. Our objective is for people to imagine themselves living in [...]
