I enjoyed working with you and John to get your wish list accomplished before your move into your new place! Thank you for the kind words.
My husband and I hired Mark to remodel and design our condo we bought in Palm Springs. My husband and I live in the bay area so we needed someone with the same vision as us and the ability become the project lead. Mark was amazing, he hired, supervised and managed all sub-contractors for us. Mark picked out different finishing materials and gave us options as the project progressed. When we saw our property for the first time after it was completed it was the classic HGTV moment and reveal. We would certainly hire Mark again if given the opportunity.Feb 7, 2018VerifiedMark Newman Inc.'s reply
Your project was a challenge given you had so many things you wanted to do given your budget. You know I have savvy to get lots of style for the money. Starting with an empty place, furnishing it fully and getting it done quickly is what I am all about. If you get that house you guys were eyeing, I would love to work with you again. All my best!
Mark's approach is highly creative, resourceful, budget conscious,organized and functional. It's wonderful when all these qualities are packaged in one designer. Mark listens translates and offers the client creative options to fulfill their vision. We enjoyed working with Mark and highly recommend.Apr 16, 2019
I was referred to Mark by a friend who hired him to design his house, which I thought was knock out! He has a great eye for balancing all design elements and really knows design. He came up with so many ideas I would never have thought of, I just stopped counting and trusted him to get me the result I was after. My home came out better than I could have dreamed of and its all because I trusted him to be the pro and let him do his thing! You will not be sorry if you choose to work with him.Jan 27, 2017Mark Newman Inc.'s reply
Cathy, I am so glad you were pleased and your trust.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fee is determined after a first meeting to determine the project size and scope. I also receive designer discounts of 10%-20% from many retailers and I pass that savings on to my clients.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It starts with an initial meeting to discuss the scope, timeline and budget for your project. In our first meeting I want to hear what you have in mind and what your priorities are. Understanding your likes and dislikes will allow me to form concepts for you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BA Degree in Interior Design and over 25 years of design experience working on projects of varying styles, sizes and budgets.
