My husband and I were fortunate to have Sharon Hocking as our interior designer. This was our first attempt at any type of renovation, so I was a bit nervous. Sharon really listened and was so helpful and fun to work with. I was overwhelmed with all the choices, but her artistic eye and design knowledge helped find and coordinate materials for our completely remodeled bathroom. I would highly recommend Sharon as an interior designer. I can’t thank her enough for turning our ugly bathroom into a thing of beauty!Jan 10, 2018VerifiedSharon Hocking Interior Design's reply
Thank you Esther. Your bathroom did turn out lovely. I'm so happy to have met you and your husband. We had such fun with you project and spending time with you two was the greater reward for me.
When I hired Sharon Hocking to come in and do a complete Interior Design of our Living and Dinning Rooms I had no idea just how wonderful this experience would be. Sharon was excellent to work with and listened to all of my concerns, ideas and suggestions. She was very communicative and prompt when we would set up meetings. Her attention to detail is beyond anything else I could have done on my own. Because I still work full time Sharon was able to do all of the leg work and then some. The next time I get ready to do some more decorating in my home Sharon will be the first and only Interior Designer that I will hire.Oct 12, 2014
Sharon is currently helping us design the living/dining area in our new home. She has been very professional, flexible and pleasant to work with. We are still in the early stages of our project but she has already been incredibly helpful to us - presenting different options/ideas, creating floor plans, etc. I would highly recommend her to a friend!Jul 6, 2017VerifiedSharon Hocking Interior Design's reply
Thank you Katie. You and your husband are taking the time to make wise choices that you will be happy with for many years. This is really important. I'm glad you found me and I'm having fun helping you in your new home.
We could not be happier with the service we received from Sharon. She designed our living room and dining room. When we decided to tackle our bonus room she was my first phone call!Nov 18, 2016VerifiedSharon Hocking Interior Design's reply
Emily, I hope that bonus room is working really well for your kids and family and friends. I enjoyed designing with you and I appreciate your trusting me and hiring me for your home! Hope to see you again soon.
Sharon helped us late out different options for new furniture and placement in a difficult great room. She was flexible in meeting our needs which changed during the time we used her services. She was very professional and prompt, and had great design ideas.Jul 21, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Your budget is where we start. I can help you know how much your budget should be for the remodel or update that you are wanting. I like my pricing to be clear. So once we are clear on the scope of work for your project, I offer a flat fee so you know exactly what my services cost.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to spend time at our first consultation getting to know my new client. I have a questionnaire I like to follow so we get all the right questions answered. I want to really listen and understand what your goals are for your space. I help you see a new vision for your space. And then I offer my process to make it happen. Once we are clear on the scope of work, then we set up a timeline for completion, a budget, we both sign a letter of agreement so we are clearly on the same page and get started!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in graphic design and also interior design. I am always attending continuing education all over Portland to keep up to date on what's new and exciting in the design and home industry.
