The best company I ever saw. – This company is great. Very nice and hardworking. I just love that company for their love to do their job they just great.
again, best move ever – Berk & company never cease to amaze me!! So the first job wasn't a fluke!
Thank you for our dream house. – Thank you so much. We love everything you've done in our new home, especially the family room. It's now our favorite room and suits us to a tee. We just couldn't figure out what to do with such an odd shaped room - and now we have a game room, a media room and room for informal dining too. But most of all, we love that you saved us literally thousands on the tiles and floor for the baths and kitchen. Even our contractor couldn't believe the pricing you got us! We are so appreciative. With your help, we were able to do so much more in our new home than we thought we could do at this time. Jo and I are very happy and invite your to stop by when ever you are in our neck of the woods.
Thank You!!!! – You are terrific!
Thank you so much for the redesign of our studio. We love it! Our clients love it. Our students love it. Amanda is thrilled with her new offices and I couldn't imagine a better working environment than the one you've created. We thought you did a great on our home last year, but we really think you one-upped yourself here! Thank you so much for all the time and your attention to every last detail. We really appreciated your willingness to work around the crazy studio schedule so that we could do this in our busy season without missing a step.
Excellent Information, excellent service – When i called for information, I was given more than 30 minutes of Peggy's time on the phone and she invited me to call back with questions. during the conversation, she emailed me a price card and other written info and then sent me hard copies of her information. She invited me to call back anytimme with questions. We spoke 4 or 5 times before I decided to make the appointment - and I'm glad I did. This was a wonderful experience and Peggy continues to respond to me via email and phone with any questions I have WITHOUT any additional charge. This was one of the nicest, most accommodating people I ever met. If you were refused information, Im sure there was a good reason she chose not to accept your business.
A Lot of Hot Air – Okay. It is definitely my fault for buying into the sales pitch and I should have checked references but I really needed help designing my new place. I still do... I won't even go into how much time I wasted waiting for the woman to arrive - 45 minutes late - and I took the day off for this? When she finally appeared she didn't even apologize. And that was just the beginning. She kept pacing around my apartment (kind of creepy) and talked, talked, talked really quickly. But nothing she said made any sense. It was weird. She tried to move my living room furniture around but it looked terrible. Need I say more? Stay away!!!
Strange...one minute after the complaint about not receiving information is posted which we know was from a particular competitor (see below) this one follows...Thing is... we never had a client named Judy...we've never been late to an appontment... and people who are recovering from broken hips (me) don't "pace"... And, if you've ever called our offices, you know we don't "sales pitch" - we answer your questions, ask you to call some of our recent clients for references and even encourage you to call our competitors (since we refuse to discuss them) and compare for yourself.... That's how we conduct our business. We also conduct our business with integrity. When Citysearch's Terms of Service require that a review be based on actual first hand experience with the business being reviewed, it means something we click on "I Agree." So Judy, if you're convinced you had this "creepy" appt., tell us the date and time or what little gift we give all our clients. Convince us!
Dissappointed and turned off – I called up area aesthetics to find out about their services and was dissapointed to be given no real information over the phone. I would expect when looking for help from a company the staff to be helpful and kind. I found neither here. I was extremely happy to seek service from another company. First impressions count, and I'm certainly not impressed with them.
It is true that we did not provide information to a person who called us on or about this date. We recognized the persons voice as belonging to one of our more unscrupulous competitors. I did not confront him, but told him very politely that I was engged and would call him back. The call back number I was given was a deli. We did a *69 on the call and got the competitor's office. As anyone legitimate who has called our offices knows, we are more than happy to provide information about our services - after all, that's how we get our business! Please do call us and judge for yourself - we would welcome the opportunity to provide every reader of this review with information about our services! We look forward to speaking with you soon!
Peggy you are the best!!!! – Thanks for putting color in my life...now no more four white walls. You make design seem so easy thanks again for all your help.
She's a lifesaver! – I was moving from an apartment with way too much furniture into an unusually-shaped apartment with skylights and no straight walls! Peggy made our furniture fit like it was made for the new apartment, advised us on what to put into storage, chose remarkable paint colors, and even unpacked our kitchen at midnight on moving day! I'm still working with her to add some finishing touches. Can't recommend her more highly!
solutions-with just one call – Once again I realized the lessons of attempting to do something instead of turning to professionals.Attempting to re-do my apartment was a source of great pain and headache untill a friend of mine reccommended to "just call peggy berk"; with one call,I was able to get out of the way and let an expert take over and show me the way to accomplish what needed to be done in my home...Since that experience, I have called Peggy for advice every time I find myself wondering about replacement furniture or redesign. Additionally,as a real estate broker,I have passed on my friends message to several clients and they all report back that it was the best call they could have made..;....Findign Peggy was like finding the right Doctor,Dentist,Lawyer etc. Whatever my needs may be in home furnishings or new designs I still just make one call...
