What Our Clients Are Saying
We highly recommend Tomas Zuokas for home renovations and staging because of the excellent job he and his workmen performed in readying our Reston townhouse for sale.
Tomas provided timely estimates that accurately reflected actual costs. Never a cost overrun. His prices throughout were fair and economical.
Tomas recommended a current look to the renovations and household materials that he knew buyers would find attractive rather than letting us make choices that reflected our own personal tastes. He offered crucial aesthetic judgments that he knew would have buyer appeal. Tomas kept in mind getting maximum benefit while keeping our costs under control.
Tomas was always punctual for meetings and for working within agreed upon deadlines. He and his skilled workmen had an eye for details. The finished work consistently showed a high level of excellence.
Importantly, Tomas's professional staging showed off the best features of the house, resulting in our receiving two above price offers on the first day the house was on the market.
RICH & JUDY McCLOUD
I was fortunate in having a real estate agent who used a team approach consisting of a designer/stager, a construction company, and a mover. Tomas was the designer/stager and performed four functions. First, Tomas worked with the real estate agent in specifying upgrades to the house that would maximize the net proceeds from the sale. In other words, he knew where to spend the money and where not to. This was significant given that a lot of upgrades were required, and there were four hypothetical models to choose from. The agent worked up the models, and Tomas added the specifics which facilitated making the final – and optimal – choice.
Second, Tomas actually picked out the materials for the upgrades: tile, vanities, granite, flooring, paint, shower doors, light fixtures, faucets, sinks, mirrors, etc. I went with Tomas to suppliers on two occasions when he selected the materials which were later picked up by the contractor. It’s important to note that Tomas picked out the optimal quality of the materials to get the most bang for the buck.
Third, Tomas supervised the construction (along with the real estate agent). This was a critical function as he kept the construction on schedule and corrected a number of errors. For example, when the granite counter top went in the master bath, Tomas was there the next day and immediately saw that it was the wrong color. On other occasions he had the contractor correct minor mistakes.
Fourth, Tomas staged the house when it was ready to go on the market.
The services Tomas performed were essential and top notch as well as extremely affordable. Tomas earns the highest recommendation I can offer.
Tomas rebuilt two bathrooms and the kitchen of our home. Tomas and his team removed a wall and made numerous other improvements throughout the house.
It all went very well. His judgement of what to do proved to be right.
We sold the house almost immediately for more than the asking price which more than paid for the improvements.
We were very satisfied and pleased with this whole endeavor.
BILL & SANDRA BUTCHER
VHD has staged several of my listings over the past 5 years and has done an incredible job each time. My sellers have all been extremely satisfied and the homes sell much quicker after Tomas works his magic! I have also used them for home-improvement projects prior to putting homes on the market and they are priced very reasonably with great results!
Tomas at VHD is a trusted professional who delivers every time. I know I can count on him to help my clients work with a budget they are comfortable with. He's got an eye for design and he's great at staging my listings to sell quickly and for more money. Whether it's staging a home or a complete remodel, it's nice to know I have a partner I can depend on to help my clients get their home ready for the market.
Virginia Home Design installed a backsplash for me in my kitchen. It looks great! They were timely- showed up on time and finished same day. They also did a good job cleaning up when they were finished. Cost was same as estimate. Tomas was easy to work with and professional.
Excellent eye for interior design, made our home look like it belonged in a magazine. We were very impressed with Tomas' work. Will definitely recommend Virginia Home Design.
