“Kathy and I both rate Judi ‘outstanding” on all aspects of the job of designing our condominium at 1350 Main, including selection of wall colors, furniture, art, towels and linen. She essentially started with bare walls and did all the work, conferring closely with us for sign off on interior design and other details. Judi was very sensitive to our needs and tastes and we were always happy and pleasantly surprised with her choices. She was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Judi for anyone requiring interior design assistance.”

Excerpt from a full review on Houzz.com for Judi Summers Design – “From the beginning we were impressed with Judi’s energy, ideas, and confidence. She was a tireless worker and never tried to impose her contemporary inclination on our more traditional taste. We were impressed with the subcontractors that she used. Her fees were reasonable and made even more so by the frequency with which she could get designer discounts on things we purchased. Needless to say we would highly recommend Judi Summers.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Judi on two homes in Lakewood Ranch. Judi has impeccable taste and wonderful ideas. If I have any reservations about an idea, she offers alternatives. In the end, I’ve found that her original thoughts are actually the best ones, however.
Because of my busy schedule – I am a partner in a large CPA practice in St. Louis – I do not have time to run all over seeking out the best furnishings and accessories. Judi knows where to go. She accumulates samples and reviews them with me in a very efficient manner, either via email photos or bringing them to me when I’m in town. Judi has advised me on everything from paint to furniture to poolside pavers to dinnerware. Her work has garnered compliments from many of my guests. She has made our decorating projects smooth and seamless. I’m fortunate to have found Judi and consider her, not only a trusted advisor, but also, a new friend.”

“Thank you again for your staging report! It was exactly what we needed, having a third party come in for this large home. [My seller] acted promptly. This morning she had landscapers and painters come to give estimates. Together, we went through your suggestions, pointing out exactly what items to remove. Hopefully, we will have her home looking fabulous just before it is listed.”

“You never know all of the little things that happen to contribute to a completed transaction. [My client] mentioned that you had discussed a large number for the value of his furniture. You suggested they sell it as a package deal. In the course of final negotiations, we did just that, and were able to add an additional $50,000 to the transaction. Thank you for your contribution.”

Judi is my secret weapon to client satisfaction. Her relaxed way of putting people at ease while advising them of exactly what to do to their home prior to selling, is a win-win for everyone. My sellers use her written report as a blueprint to enhance their home, resulting in great photography and a much better chance of selling at the best price in the shortest time. Thank you, Judi, for making me look so professional. You Rock!!

“Thanks for responding so fast! My client is willing to do everything that you suggested. Thank you for reinforcing what I was telling them. They are anxious to sell and move on.”
