RICHARD - Petone, Wellington

I had a house in Petone. Lots of Potential, very sound, but had not been redecorated apart from bathrooms since the 80s. A stylistic Lead balloon.

I considered the options: redecorate minimally, or go the whole hog. Either way, I needed help, I am not an artist. I looked at the market for decorating knowledge, market success and home staging prowess. There were several good people, but Roz Scott stood out, mainly because she is quite loud and out-spoken, a go-getter. If there is one thing you want when you are selling, is a go getter.

So although Roz was more expensive than the others, she also came with excellent recommendations from previous clients. I now know why.

I sat down with Roz and first of all planned the entire house, from carpet, vinyl, paint, colours, lighting, window coverings, complete kitchen, flow, market, strategy and timing.

I hadn't originally planned to go so far, but we worked out that it would pay off. Roz introduced me to some excellent trades people, and we formed a great team. We took the house apart and put it back together over just under three months. New kitchen (same appliances), dark grey carpet and polished floors, stunning vinyl, blinds throughout, complete repaint internally, amazing lights. Roz had great contacts for purchasing and we saved thousands of dollars off retail.

I trusted Roz to make good decisions, and she did, when deciding decor. I did as much work as I could myself, and we finished the project bang on time.

Did it work? Well... The house sold for almost 1/4 million more than the highest previous price in the street. The agents were gob-smacked. All the cost was repaid by more than triple profit over the original purchase price.

Roz spent weeks helping with fine details, choosing perfect fittings, advising details and motivating. During the staging part, she ensured that the place looked absolutely stunning, including flowers and amazing personal touches that made the house look lived in.

Would I recommend Roz? I'm relaxing on the deck with a wine and a pile of money, of course I would.

If you want to sit back and be taken by the market, go with the others. If you want to make it happen and get best value, talk to Roz.

Cheers and good luck!

We have been working closely with Roz for the past couple of years, and WOW what an offering! Roz does not just stage a home, she creates a scene, promotes the lifestyle and sells the dream. Roz has exquisite taste and amazing creative flare which is very evident in the end product. To have someone like Roz available to present our properties in the best possible light is a huge advantage to both us and our vendors. Roz has taken home staging in Wellington to the next level and for that we are very grateful.

LYNLEY -  Oriental Bay, Wellington

Thank you so much for all your help in transforming our home! You and your team created an eye catching stylish and eclectic interior that both we and our buyers loved! This resulted in multiple offers and a premium price. Without hesitation I would encourage all vendors to consider spending a little extra and using you amazing skills. It will be so worth it..particularly if, as in our case, your home requires some renovation as buyers are initially drawn by what can be their end product. (lynleymcgoven1@gmail.com).

Roz Scott from Tick A Dee Boo home staging did a fantastic job of staging my property. Her eclectic style brought the property to life and gave potential buyers a great feel for the different spaces. Roz is efficient, reliable, trustworthy and very easy to deal with. We had very positive feedback on how well the property was presented, in no small part due to the staging. I would definitely recommend Roz and would use her again.

JENNY & FRANK -  Newtown, Wellington

On advice from our Estate agent we engaged Tickadeeboo Insideout Design Ltd to furnish our small cottage for the purpose of sale. Roz Scott came and viewed the property and knew exactly what furnishings were required to make the cottage look and feel stylish and inviting.

We were thrilled with how the property was furnished and, were delighted with the sale of the property in a two week campaign,that we know was certainly achieved with the staging of our cottage. We found Roz Scott to be extremely professional and most helpful to deal with. Any future properties that we are to sell, we will be using Roz and Tickadeeboo without hesitation.

Thank you for your help Roz

JO WARNER -  Khandallah, Wellington

After looking at a number of home staging companies I discovered Tickadeeboo and Roz. I was instantly impressed by the website. Meeting Roz, it was immediately apparent how experienced and professional she is.

Initially we asked Roz to homestage the house. She has an amazing interior design collection that completely transformed the house and I have no doubt added significantly to its appeal. We totally appreciated Roz's incredible attention to detail and commitment to make the house look amazing.

We also asked Roz to be our agent in the selling of the house. Again her advice and professionalism were unmatched from my previous experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Roz if we were looking to sell again.

Thanks Roz you're a star

TINA DOME -  Northland, Wellington

Roz has a fantastic eye, every detail in the house right down to the toilet was spot on.  She provided fresh flowers and herbs for the photos and first open home which demonstrated to me the benefit of her real estate background.

Tickadeeboo Insideout Design met our challenging deadline with amazing efficiency - quoting on a Thursday with installation on a Monday.  Their communication throughout the time we had the house staged was top notch and nothing was too much trouble.  I have no doubt the home staging by Tickadeeboo helped us achieve a fantastic sale price and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Roz and her team again

ALISTER & SARAH -  Sydney, Australia

We engaged Roz through her staging business Tick A Dee Boo to present our house for sale. The staging of the house looked fantastic with the photos really showing the properties best features. Our expectations about how to best present the property for sale in order to maximise it's sale value were met.

We also appointed Roz as our real estate agent. We had recently relocated to Australia and Roz was fantastic at organising everything. We placed ourselves in her hands - she helped out in many little ways making selling our property easier for us. Roz clearly communicated and executed the marketing plan which together with the staging generated a lot of interest in the property.

We are very happy with the end result. Thanks Roz

GREG COBB & SUZANNE HOARE -  Berhampore, Wellington

I recently sold my house in a very sluggish market & Roz's professional assistance made it all the more pleasant. Roz came into our home, assessed our needs and took on board what we wanted as well as advising us in the right direction, the result being a very stylish family home with great flow. Roz's eye for detail is remarkable, she really manages to get a sense of your style & flair, I can’t wait to get her into my new home for her advice again! Thank you Roz!!

CLARE FROM ANA CUISINE -  Brooklyn, Wellington

We found Roz incredible to deal with honesty, integrity, totally, (black and white) straight to the point, and stress free! Roz has away with people and great ideas on interior and exterior display and helped us a lot in this area. We would recommend Roz Scott to work for you in a partnership over 100% Have an enjoyable journey, WE DID!

AMY BARR -  Newlands, Wellington

Wow does this girl know her stuff! Roz was awesome. After the completion of the renovation of our house it looked good, but not great. It needed the special finishing touches that would really WOW people as they viewed it, imagining this house as their own home. Roz re-worked every room to show it off to its full potential, adding special bits and bobs as she went. We were thrilled with the result. As our agent she made us feel like we were her only clients. Keeping us fully informed and happy throughout the selling process. She’s prepared to go the extra mile to stand out from other agents. I would not hesitate to recommend Roz to anyone. What a superstar!

PAULA BOOCK & ROBYN PATERSON -  Houghton Bay and Newtown, Wellington

Roz has sold two homes for us and we have always found her ethical, positive and totally committed to getting the best deal for us.

She is very strong on presentation and gave us excellent advice (and hands-on help!) in preparing our houses for sale. We were most impressed by Roz’s communication skills. She doesn’t over-promise, she always takes calls, always gets back to you, always remembers details and listens to what her clients want. Because of this, we have felt well-informed throughout the process, and prepared for the decisions that will come. At sale time Roz excels at negotiating in good humour, while getting the last dollar out of prospective buyers.

For all these reasons, we have trusted her with the sale of two homes, and are happy with the results. We have recommended her to family and friends and have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

IAN WEDDE & DONNA MALANE

Roz was clearly committed to selling our house as soon as we signed with her. She threw herself into the pre-sale preparation, going well beyond anything we had expected. She was generous with her advice and her time, communicated with us on all matters and the result of a sale on the second day on the market was fantastic. You couldn't ask more of an sales agent and we would highly recommend Roz to anyone thinking of selling their house.

RICK BROWN -  Brooklyn, Wellington

My property was in Brooklyn and I had owned it for eight years I brought the house from Roz and when it was time to sell I knew who I wanted to sell it. Roz explained everything I needed to do and what she was going to do to make sure I got the best prices and a successful sale. Roz helped me get my house looking it’s best and within days I was on the market! Roz was fantastic at keeping me informed and gave me really good feedback from the buyers. She even mowed my lawn before an Open Home as I was away.
 
I really believe I have had the very best experience of having my home look fantastic and  the sale of my home. Please do not hesitate using Roz Scott to make your home look amazing.

JANE PARK -  Wellington

I asked Roz at Tick-A-Dee-Boo to stage a 137sqm apartment in Willis St on a Wednesday. I needed it urgently completed for photographs on that Friday. Roz presented me with a proposal and quote the same day and had the clients go ahead immediately. Roz went to work and completed the staging within the very limited timeframe available.

The apartment was a beautiful 3 bedroom apartment but lacked life and warmth without furniture and design objects. Once Tick-A-Dee-Boo had staged the apartment it bought it to life and immediately made it easy for my clients (buyers) to see the potential of the space so they could imagine living there themselves.

I would highly recommend Tick-A-Dee-Boo to anyone looking to add appeal and warmth to any house or apartment. Roz’s sense of design and creative direction in parallel with her high level of service and warm personality made it a pleasure to work with her.
