"In my 34 years in the building industry, Mary DeWalt is by far the most professional designer I have ever had merchandise my model homes. She keeps up with current trends but isn't trendy. She understands the demographics of our buyer and designs and merchandises appropriately. She brings national market savvy to my local market. I have won numerous awards with her designs but more importantly i have sold a bunch of homes with her designs. She employs professional people who reflect her own values. Her team is always top notch. I wouldn't use anyone else."
"I have worked with Mary DeWalt for approximately 6 years on multiple design projects from model home merchandising to finish selections our company offers to our clients. It has always been obvious that Mary stays very much in tune with current design trends relative to the taste and style of the end user of the home. They have the ability to really put together the 'wow' factor in whichever direction the design needs to go, whether it be elegance, fun, children's rooms, outstanding kitchen design, etc. Thank you many times over to Mary DeWalt."
"Mary DeWalt and her team of professionals have helped me with model merchandising for over 9 years now. I can depend on them like I depend on members of my own internal team. They are knowledgeable, professional, reliable and always go above and beyond to offer A+ service. Over the course of our 9 year relationship, I have called on Mary and her team to offer services beyond their scope at times and they are always willing to help. Not only are they reliable but they offer design and model merchandising beyond the market trends which has helped us win numerous awards including Builder of the Year several times to date. As one of the largest public homebuilders in the nation, I need partners I can trust. I continue to trust Mary and her team with our projects. Mary's team deserves to be recognized for outstanding work!"
