Nairn makes magic! Simply put, she is a miracle worker when it comes to staging apartments. I have had the pleasure of working with Nairn on numerous projects over the last several years, including three estate properties that required significant condition work. She has always been incredibly helpful, responsive, resourceful, professional, and hard working. Nairn is able to transform the most cluttered apartment into a beautiful show piece. She knows what an apartment needs and gets the apartment cleaned up and staged perfectly. Nairn is skilled in crafting unique proposals for each project and working with sellers in a collaborative approach to reach their goals while staying within a defined budget. I can say without a doubt that Nairn has helped my clients sell their apartments at far higher prices and in a much shorter amount of time than they would have had they not used her services. I would recommend Nairn to anyone looking to sell their home quickly and for the highest dollar value.

I just have to write to you to tell you how absolutely stunning I think the apartment looks! You have turned our estate apartment into a bright, airy, elegant, spacious, gorgeous home! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked into the apartment today. You’re a miracle worker! Thank you so much.

I wanted to let you know that the very first person who saw your staging job made an offer on my dad’s apartment. I have accepted it and contracts are being signed this week. Clearly you’re immensely talented and I wanted to thank you very much for your efforts.

I know it’s a cliché, but I genuinely thought I had walked into the wrong apartment after Nairn worked her magic on my mother’s apartment. The before and after was that stark. The same apartment on a higher floor (with, consequently, a better view) did not sell as well as mine. I’m convinced Nairn’s amazing staging made the difference. It wouldn’t have happened without Nairn’s wizardry!

Thank you so much for all your help. We will keep your information for other estate properties that need staging.
Natalia Poloukarova, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP
We are absolutely overwhelmed by this. It is, at once, both sad to be letting go of the place where we grew up and amazing to think of the potential another family will enjoy. It never would have happened without your incredible talent. Words cannot express our appreciation for the incredible job you did.

Nairn’s nickname should be Miracle Worker. She transformed an estate apartment I had to sell on Central Park West from a dark abysmal tomb into a beautiful bright contemporary looking space. The previous owner lived there for over 40 years. Every inch of the apartment was covered with wallpaper. The windows were covered with dark velvet drapes. Any apartment on the first floor is a challenge to sell. With Nairn’s clever lighting and window treatments, the apartment was truly much brighter than anyone could imagine a first floor apartment could ever be. Her clever staging of the dining area off the kitchen into a third bedroom greatly increased the value of the apartment. The people who bought the apartment are going to use that room as a child’s bedroom. The pictures of the apartment drew 75 people to the first open house, and we had multiple offers within the week. There’s no question that the apartment sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars more than it would have in its original state.

Last year I was faced with what has become a familiar task for so many – dealing with the issue of selling the apartment of my recently deceased mother. Fortunately I was referred to Nairn Friemann . Nairn’s sensitivity combined with her design abilities, marketing knowledge and professional, yet flexible, approach made a painful and emotionally charged task possible.As an individual who has been involved in the business of interior construction in NYC for more than thirty years, I can honestly say this was the most efficient, cost effective and, considering the situation, one of the least stressful project I have ever been involved with. I have no doubt that her input on this project resulted in a quicker and more profitable sale. She exhibits a rare combination of design skills, a keen insight of the complexities of the current realty market and a flexible but business-like approach that makes her a true ally when you need it most. It is with a deep appreciation for the skilled help and sensitivity she provided my family and myself that I submit this letter. The term recommendation seems inadequate for this type of service when this situation arises. With deep gratitude.

I would highly recommend Nairn to anyone looking to maximize the profits on the sale of their home – usually their largest asset. Nairn has worked wonders for many of my listings, including an estate that she recently transformed. Estates can be particularly challenging because of the accumulation of possessions (some very fine), and the sometimes state of disrepair of these apartments. Nairn made the estate I was working with look and feel fresh and inviting. She took the focus off the furniture and the possessions and put it on the views and the beautiful bones of the apartment. We received an offer exceeding all expectations immediately.
David Anderson, VP, Director, Brown Harris Stevens
Nairn we love you! Your ability to transform a property is truly magical. Whether working on a townhouse or an apartment, you have a special touch. At the most reasonable possible price you make the most of all the most positive features. Recently we were able to sell a large estate to the first person who inquired about it, at an excellent price, due to your amazing input. In addition, your generosity and enthusiasm make it a pleasure to work with you. Thank you so much for all of your help over the many years that we have worked together.
Diane Abrams, SVP, Managing Director and Felise Gross, VP, Director, Brown Harris Stevens
Working with Nairn on the sale of my mother’s estate property was great. From the first consultation, I knew she has that decisive visual sense of how to make a place look great – what to remove, what to purchase, what to repair and what to use, all within a realistic budget, which was she stuck to. Although the work was considerable, it was truly a short term investment, that paid off handsomely, not an expense. The place looked great, and we accepted an offer, 6 days after the apartment went on the market, above the listing price. A true professional, I would highly recommend working with Nairn to anyone looking to sell a property.

Congratulations on the recognition you recently received from your industry. You certainly did a great job on my aunt’s apartment.

Thanks to Nairn Friemann we received a higher than expected offer for an estate-condition apartment at Imperial House. I recommend her for three reasons: a) she gave my customers very viable stagingoptions at several different price points; b) she delivered a terrific finished product in quick time; and c) her prices were as reasonable as she was flexible and cooperative.
Jonathan Charnas, Fox Residential
Many, many thanks for your work on our mother’s estate property. It was three weeks from the first open house to a signed contract- unbelieveable! It was on the market “undressed” from August to December with only the most meager nibbles and many complaints about the enormous amount of work that needed to be done. What a difference your staging made!
Phyllis Platner, New York
Thanks for your fabulous guidance and professionalism.
Jonathan Herlands, Esq.
The estate condition property had 44 people at the first open house (which was on Super Bowl Sunday) and sold over ask in 6 days. Another victory for beautiful staging!
