Pilar Calleja is a top notch stager and designer. I have always found her to go over and above what she needs to do to get the job done. She has impeccable taste and I would not hesitate to refer her to anyone needing a designer. She is also a joy to work with.
It is without hesitation that I provide a reference for Pilar. She is the epitome of a true professional,
with the added benefit of being an amazing artist! I have been amazed to see the transformation on homes that she has inspired through the use of colors, textures, furniture, and accessories. In many challenging situations, she has taken the ordinary to extraordinary - always while recognizing the character and personality of each individual home (and client). I would recommend her to anyone seeking interior design services. It has been a real pleasure working with you over the past five years.

Initially we started out with you picking some paint colors and some lighting fixture choices on a
house that I couldn't figure out what to do with, and they were so very well received. It didn't take me very long to realize that I should turn over all of my design decisions to you. You really took a lot of
the headache out of remodeling and flipping all those houses, its hard to believe we survived so many!
I learned very quickly to trust your design decisions as they were always well balanced, budget conscious, and so pleasing to eye. Your ability to envision the final product from ground zero has
always amazed me.
It was a true privilege to work with someone with such a high level of integrity. I never once had to wonder if you had accomplished any project that you agreed to do, as you were often way ahead of
me and the schedule. You brought a wonderful calming effect to the projects and exemplified what is meant by "Grace under pressure". When you staged the properties I would often get more calls from agents asking about "Who staged the property?" than inquiries about the house! Your eye for color coordination and the elegance and balance in which you execute your design concepts, coupled with your innate charm and grace should catapult you to great success in your new business. I would be honored if you would include me as one of your references.

"I had a client that just purchased a home and needed to resell it with hopefully not incurring a loss. Pilar staged the home and it produced $50,000+ more in the sale price than what my clients had paid for the homeless Improvements such as carpet, paint, & fixtures.

"Pilar has helped many of my clients prepare their homes for sale. Because of her great style sense,
my clients have used her to decorate their new homes too."

I've had the pleasure of photographing several homes and offices that Pilar has done the design work on, and without fail each one has been absolutely fantastic. She definitely has a great eye for choosing and matching the decor, furniture and architecture together into a true work of art. Its always a pleasure working with Pilar, and I definitely look forward to watching her talents grow in the future. She is a true professional, and I would not hesitate to recommend her for any design projects that you may need. I am also confident that the work she will do for you will be nothing short of "Top Notch".
