What People Say About Us


-Katy T.

“Laurie is a true joy to work with! She is extremely patient, listens to what you want in a home and holds your hand through the process. She is quick to respond and always available. She has a unique expertise of all the neighborhoods in Houston and she can help you narrow down the right “fit” for your faily. Laurie is a true client advocate. She is a terrific professional whom I would consider a friend.”

-D. New

“I hosted 3 separate Christmas events in my home this year and I cannot begin to tell how many compliments I received on the colors, furniture, drapery etc.

Thank you all for giving me so much of your time and expert knowledge that created something which makes me proud to call home.”

-Jill Nelson

“I’ve been a customer of Laurie for 7 years, she’s helped me buy and sell multiple homes over the years as my life has adjusted. Never pushy, her expertise in remodeling, design and real estate was the comfort and trust I needed.
I also hired Laurie to help design and build interior furniture, fabric and wall coverings – pieces that will be with me forever. She is thoughtful, humble, intelligent and offers her professional opinion in the most calm and articulate way. I tend to need harnessing at times and she instantly was someone I felt I could trust. A coworker recommended her but I didn’t know I would be a life long client and friend. Would recommend Laurie and her team to anyone I know.”

-D. Coffey

“I am thrilled with the final look of our kitchen and master bathroom. It is exactly what I had in mind. The work done is really professional and beautiful. It was easy to communicate my ideas to the design team and they really delivered quality designs and work.”
