Aleen, was absolutely wonderful. Our house was staged beautifully. I love everything about the process. It went very smoothlyMay 6, 2017Verified
Aleen and her team are amazing. They did a great job, were very professional, and delivered so much more. They were even able to work with me on extremely short notices before and after the sale. We sold in 1 day with multiple offers and everyone commented on the beautifully staged home. I absolutely will be using Aleen again.Mar 14, 2017VerifiedAleen Kojaian Design's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price tag is not cheap. Most potential clients have price-shopped at least a little. Everyone has a different value proposition. For me its my promise of exceptional customer service and the level of client care during a project. I offer this on top of the tangible work theyre paying me for. I want my clients to know every dollar spent with me is well worth it. We always provide the best for our clients within their budget range; therefore we provide two different pricing systems. Hourly Consultation Service This hourly service is ideal for people who have an established design direction for their projects, and are only seeking professional guidance at certain stages. Consultation is geared towards material selection, including: Appliances Cabinetry Countertops Flooring Lighting Paint Tile Wallpapers Turn-Key Design Service Turn-key design service is perfect for clients who prefer to leave their projects to the experts. We will evaluate the scope of your project and for an agreed-upon flat fee, we can oversee your renovation from start to finish. This crucial assistance allows home and business owners to achieve a seamless design concept with a controlled budget and timeline. We will organize as much or as little of the process as our client desires. We collaborate and consult with clients at a number of stages during a project, dependent upon their needs, including the following: Programming At the programming stage of a project, we can work with our clients to determine: Design aesthetic Overall budget Needs and project constraints Site measure Conceptual Design We can provide the conceptual design for a project, using our 3-D modeling program and incorporating our knowledge of space planning to maximize the functionality of the renovation. Design Development We also work closely with our customers to revise the conceptual design according to their feedback, to ensure that the final product matches their vision.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I obtained post-graduate qualifications in the form of Interior Design Certificate program at UCLA extension. This allowed me the learning experience of overseeing all aspects of design projects. Recently I earned my degree in Master's of Interior Architecture from Cal-Poly Pomona through UCLA.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Ever since I was young, I have always had a keen interest in Interior Design. My passion for it and space planning began at a very young age I successfully graduated with a Bachelors degree in Computer Engineering with a major in Information Technology in June 2006! I had invested a significant amount of energy to join the School of Architecture, but unfortunately due to administrative reasons/law, I was only provided with the opportunity to take up Computer Engineering. I am very proud of this degree even though it was not in my field of passion, because it shows I am able to finish tough challenges even when faced with life detours. Following this, I sought out opportunities upon graduation to work in the lighting industry in order to custom-build my future plans and guide them back towards my passion. During this time I sourced suitable suppliers and assisted customers in making the right selection for the right purpose. I really enjoyed improving the lives of people while achieving a high caliber of customer satisfaction for the entire team. This hands-on experience furthered me towards Interior Design and Architecture as my professional goal. To strengthen my credentials in Interior Design, I obtained post-graduate qualifications in the form of Interior Design Certificate program at UCLA extension. This allowed me the learning experience of overseeing all aspects of design projects. In June 2014, I completed my certificate with a further addition to a portfolio of strong academic achievements.
