What our clients are saying
As Alan, my broker, will attest, Design Milagros' work has received rave reviews from many prospective buyers & brokers. Lorraine & Eva have been exceedingly easy to work with & had an immediate vision how best to stage each room, as well as, providing painting & cleaning contractors. The furnishings & amenities provided are of excellent quality & most tastefully arranged. I have no question that their staging will be repaid many times by the sale price. Design Milagros' professional service is most appreciated!
John - 700 Illinois St.
The home looks absolutely wonderful. Our architect colleagues, friends and neighbors that have viewed the web site and/or our open house, have passed on very favorable comments regarding the elegance that the interior demonstrates. Good vision! You have a great eye for mirror and furniture placement. The "Kids Rm." is an absolute hit... even overseas viewers of the web site are enthralled with the room and wish their kids lived and played in it! You really did a great job on all the Bedrooms and the Sunroom shows very well. Thank you for your art and your diligence!
Mike & Bozena - 2351 29th Ave
Quick, painless and profitable... I could come to like that formula, however I only have the one S.F. property to sell. I hope when Dan told you about the sale you thought "I knew my staging would bring in the right clientele" because it did. Your staging and gentle push and support were so important to the total process and to me personally. I will remember the sale as much for the people involved as for the financial security it helped me achieve. I did have fun during this once in a lifetime experience.

I wanted to give you and everyone at your company my sincere appreciation for working through the details of staging and cosmetic improvements for my condo at 2301 Harrison #301. On only a week's notice, you were able to schedule floor screening and refinishing, a full deep cleaning and carpet cleaning, full painting, and staging. Your prices were competitive with other vendors, and while other vendors were not available to start for weeks or even months, you were able to start and finish all the work within a week. Afterwards, the condo looked amazing and very marketable. I was able to get an offer for my condo above asking price after its first open house, and I'm certain that your excellent work and staging had a big part in that. I would wholeheartedly recommend your firm to anyone I know who is looking to improve and stage their place as a part of putting it on the market. You did an amazing job!
Mark - 2301 Harrison #301
Thank you again for the excellent coordination of both Westgate and Broadway properties, in particular through the entire job on 2434 Broadway in less than 3 weeks was just amazing. Yes, the trustees were very happy and satisfied with your work and the entire quick marketing and closing of the transaction. It was one of those dream listings that we all hope we can work on more often
Angela - 2434 Broadway
I was definitely waiting until I had a minute to express how grateful I am with you and your team for the beautiful and extremely professional work you did for us. I told you before how amazed I am when I find people like you - so very professional and proud of what they do. You are an incredible artist and have a tremendous talent - not only doing your job but also dealing with people and understanding their personalities and needs. Thank you for reminding me of the grill. I left it for the new owner because it looks nice in that spot. I will call you for sure to help me with any project in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know. Many hugs and thanks again for all your kindness and all the love you put into this venture.

Please accept our recommendation of Lorraine Alwaise for your project. Lorraine and her team are professional, talented, and diligent. Lorraine has an eye for detail and helped to enhance the atmosphere of our home, greatly. She helped us with structural construction, overall paint selection, new recessed lighting and fixtures, and all furnishings and accents. She worked within the schedule we discussed and delivered an outstanding product. We enjoy and look forward to going to our home now, so very much, thanks to her and those who helped!
A. Czypinski - Four Seasons Private Residences
Lorraine and Eva were great to work with, I highly recommend their services and greatly enjoyed working with them. We had an almost impossible schedule to meet to get my father's house on the market. They were extremely supportive, helpful, professional and kind throughout the process. They were always in touch about what was happening when; flexible on what elements they would be happy to coordinate or relinquish if I had a vendor I preferred to work with; and quick to come up with solutions to any problem. And now that we've finished the staging (and minor repairs), the home looks great and I have no doubt it is showing well to potential buyers.
Jay - 400 Castenada
Saw Donna's new listing at 484 Los Palmos today on office tour--your staging is stunning and it's going to sell that house for a lot more than it's worth.
Larry - 484 Los Palmos
Thanks for all your outstanding help on staging our home at 953 Haight. As you may have heard, we are already in contract - in escrow! We received 5 offers, all above asking price. We selected a very nice couple of professors with a little daughter. They loved the home, the architectural detail, the garden and the care and taste with which it was presented. The offer is very clean and is expected to close within 30 days. And here is our thank you recommendation: We strongly recommend working with Lorraine Alwaise and Eva Chour. They delivered exactly what we needed and beyond to stage our home beautifully, quickly and economically. They were professional, prepared, pleasant and profitable! With their keen eyed recommendations for visually appealing upgrades and practical and economical improvements, we sold our home two days after listing for well above the asking price.
