“Dear Steve and whichever designers worked on my condo, THANK YOU! My condo looked spectacular in all of the photos, thanks to your wonderful design team. That brought people in the door. Of those people, a lovely family just went into contract to buy my home. They said they came because of the gorgeous photos they saw online. The bottom line:  my condo was on the market for less than two weeks. It is already a special property. Your design touch made it even more so. I am deeply grateful for your efforts, time, and expertise.”

“Sayde Mark Designs did a great job with a dated Noe Valley home I recently sold. The house needed some “kick” without being too out there. Their design created an updated, upscale vibe perfectly. They were also super efficient and responsive to any requests I had. I recommend this team highly!”
– Thomas Cooke, Hill & Co.

“I work with Heather and her team in Marin county. She does an outstanding job with her unique style that creates a great emotional and energetic connection with prospective buyers. Her team is great to work with and I highly recommend them!”

Heather works well incorporating the seller’s existing furnishings with her own and accessorizing all. In addition, she is sensitive to the emotions of the process.

“Sayde Mark Designs has done multiple listings for me including three units simultaneously in a multi-unit building. They made each unit unique, and they all sold quickly at or over asking price! Heather and Steve have great personalities and are fun to work with. I’m excited to bring them on for my next listing!”
