Reviews from Houzz

I am a real estate professional

and I've just started to rely on Judy's expertise in staging prior to listing a home. She is amazing at what she does. She is gentle with our clients in her approach to making changes in a home and the results are fantastic. A home she staged has gone under contract in 12 days!

I am so happy that we used Judy to remodel our office space!


We wanted to have a professional yet homey feel and Judy did a wonderful job giving us exactly what we were looking for. In order to minimize our closing time with our patients we brought in Judy to do most of the shopping for the décor, chairs, tile, vanities, mirrors, sconces, and basically every detail of our remodel. She working quickly and efficiently with us on every part and we were so impressed with the results! She did a fabulous job of bringing a comfortable yet elegant feel to our office. Thanks Judy!



I have used Judy from Fresh Look Interiors for many home projects...

...and she has been amazing! After such success with our first project together I now don't make any decisions without her! Judy is very attentive to details that are personal to your specific outcome that you are looking for. She has so many great ideas but always makes sure that the result is exactly what you are looking for. I would recommend Judy to everyone and look forward to more home improvements with her on my team.
