"I have worked with Jodi and found her to be very professional and approachable. She will take the time to listen and understand what you want before making suggestions. She has the backing of a very successful company and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Being able to offer interior design and home staging are two more reasons you should rely on her. You won't be disappointed."

“She is always on top of her game!”

“Jodi has gone above and beyond expectations…”
"Jodi has gone above and beyond expectations to help me get my house ready to put on the market. My house was in bad shape, and she put a LOT of work in to make sure it looked as best as it could so that it would show well. She works very hard to do everything she can to market and sell it; she's very eager to help and is doing whatever it takes to bring potential buyers in to see my house. She is in constant communication with me to let me know about showings and feedback from the Realtors who come in to my house. I would highly recommend Jodi for any of your real estate needs!!" - J.D.
“We were first-time home buyers, however, Jodi made the experience easy for us”
"Jodi was absolutely unbelievable and patient with us during our home buying experience. We were first-time home buyers; however, Jodi made the experience easy for us. We would definately recommend Jodi to anyone looking to buy or sell a home." Steven & Carol
“… she sold it in 24 hours for list price!”
"I found Jodi on Trulia and so glad I did. From the first meeting, I knew It was a great fit. She went the extra mile to help the deal on purchasing my current home and she did a great job on selling my previous home. More than great, she sold it in 24 hours for list price! Thanks Jodi!" - Kara F.
“I recommend her, without reservation, to anyone needing the services of a realtor”
"From the first phone conversation to the day of closing, Jodi was engaged, energetic and concerned with what I wanted in a home, as well as locations or features I did not want - in other words, she LISTENED. At no time did she pressure me to choose a certain town or property that did not meet my needs. She was professional, knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects of house-hunting and buying. No question was too small or a bother. She was responsive and easy to reach whenever I had a question or concern, whether by phone, text or email. At my request, she recommended an attorney who I hired and was delighted I had done so because she too was professional and supportive. Jodi was also a standout in terms of keeping everyone involved (my mortgage banker, attorney, seller's realtor and attorney) informed of any activities relating to my purchase of a home so that everyone was always up-to-date. I cannot speak highly enough of Jodi and the role she played in the entire process of me finding that perfect new abode, and then getting me there. I recommend her, without reservation, to anyone needing the services of a realtor" - C.F.
“I cant thank you enough for holding our hand through building our shop from the ground up.”
"Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the Amazing Job you not only did on my home, but on designing our Smallcakes Shop! You have the perfect eye for what colors/patterns/styles ect. work and flow together. I LOVE everything in the shop from the paint, floors, counters, lights (I LOVE the lights!!) to the awesome brick stone on the front of the counter! Who would have thought of that - and we always get compliments on it! I cant thank you enough for holding our hand through building our shop from the ground up. I would recommend you to everyone I know, you did a 5 Star Job on our home, that we were more than happy/excited for you to design our first business location! Thank you Jodi!!!!!!!!!" - Jill W.
“Whether your project is large or small, her creative ideas and wealth of resources will ensure you end up with amazing results that fit your budget!”
"When my husband and I decided to invest in remodeling our kitchen, we knew we also wanted to invest in the services of a professional interior designer. I found Jodi through her website, and I know we would not have ended up with such a fabulous kitchen without her help. The cost of her services were a small percentage of the total project and she helped us save money in so many ways. She came up with a solid plan, created a beautiful design, and guided us through the overwhelming number of options for materials, colors, etc. After the kitchen project was complete, Jodi helped me choose some artwork for my living and dining room and made some recommendations for paint colors for these rooms as well as our master bedroom. If you are going to take the time and spend the money to decorate your home I recommend you consult with Jodi. Whether your project is large or small, her creative ideas and wealth of resources will ensure you end up with amazing results that fit your budget!" - Amy D.
“I highly recommend Jodi for her expertise and her professionalism!”
"After many unsuccessful attempts at "home decorating" ourselves, we finally broke down and hired a professional to assist us (sometimes, it's cheaper to just admit you are in WAY over your head). I was in a networking group with Jodi and found her to be very professional and very pleasant. Having never hired a designer for our home before, I was very uncertain on what to expect or even how to go about the process. Jodi was very helpful in easing us through the process. She has made several trips to our house with samples and ideas. There were days that my eyes started glazing over (I don't do well with too many choices) and she would pick up on that "discomfort" and calmly direct my attention to something else. She works wonderfully with the other professionals we had brought in for various items of home improvement - specifically our painter and fireplace stone guy. She was not at all pushy, but rather she's a listener. She takes in what you say and then provides you with exactly what you are looking for - even before you KNOW what you are looking for! I highly recommend Jodi for her expertise and her professionalism!" - Tina
“Jodi’s first rate at everything she does and it shows in her work.”
"When we first moved from renting to owning our professional space, we decided to build new. Jodi came on as our Interior Designer of the entire office space, including our creative spaces, and worked from the beginning with the architect—to the very end details including shelving, chairs, plants and more. Every time a new client walks through the door, the look on their face is priceless when they see how incredibly designed our building is. Jodi's first rate at everything she does and it shows in her work." - M. Phillips
