Dan and the team at The Look are second to none in this business. We’ve worked with many different companies over the last 15 years, and they are the best without any shadow of a doubt. Their product is fantastic quality and is as good or better than other operators who charge significantly more. However, the main benefit we’ve found using The Look is that they have the stock levels required and their processes so refined that they are able to be incredibly flexible with our demands. They are able to move from quoting to installing in as little as 24 hours and can deal with changes to scheduling so effortlessly that it doesn’t impact their clients – they just make it easy! Aside from all of this they have an intense client focused approach and they are driven to having you come away happy and will go above and beyond to make sure that happens.
As Marketing Manager for one of New Zealand's largest urban redevelopment projects in Glen Innes, Auckland, I was responsible for the overall brand story and aesthetic of how we
took over 400 new homes to market. The typography of the homes ranged from terraces through to high end five bedroom, 2 living room family homes and our demographic of buyers included first home buyers right through to executive home buyers. There were a number of complexities in staging and running so many open homes and properties for sale, all of which Dan and the Team from The Look handled expertly. I would often need multiple homes staged at once, furniture shifted quickly between homes or furniture removed at short notice and the team at The Look always found a solution to make this happen for me. Dan and the team were always on call if I needed anything and no job or timeline was ever a problem.
During the staging and sale of over 80 executive homes the furniture, artwork and accessories were always the very best quality and right on brief - I regularly had the home buyers asking if they could purchase the furniture with the home! The team always had enough quality staging no matter how many extra properties I added and they were also very happy to work with existing furniture when required. Through staging so many new homes and shifting furniture in and out we never had any damage to any of the properties which is a real testament to the care the team from The Look take.
The Look team played a crucial part in our properties achieving an absolute premium sales price for the area and I couldn't recommend them more highly.
Fantastic news! 6b Jubilee Ave sold yesterday at auction for $2.1million!! WOW amazing price.
During the four week campaign I had continual feedback on the staging of the home and how well done it was. The comments were all positive and several people asked who had done the work.
Thank you for all your effort and expertise and I look forward to working with you again soon on another project.
I would like to recommend The Look home staging company as an excellent way to go when preparing a property for sale. My wife and I were selling a four bedroom bungalow and called them on the advice of the real estate agent. We had no experience in this area and were a little uncertain as to what the outcome would be.
A team member came and assessed the house while it was still being redecorated. She made some very good suggestions as to how we could better prepare the appearance of each room even before the team arrived on ‘staging day.’ Her planning was flawless and everything seemed to work like clockwork as they carried a large amount of furniture and decorative items into the house.
The result was amazing! As we walked through the rooms, we were continually surprised by the level of presentation. The real estate agent was also very happy and noted how many people complimented the staging during the open homes. Every room appeared spacious and stunning.
Auction day came and the property sold without a hitch. We were not disappointed with the outcome and believe without a doubt that The Look helped us to achieve a successful sale. I have no hesitation in recommending The Look as a very competent company to others who are planning to sell property.
Thank you to Dan and the team.
From the moment I made my initial enquiry through to the day the furniture was removed the staff at The Look were a pleasure to deal with. Kate was very approachable and listened to my ideas, translated them perfectly and added her special touch, I couldn’t have been happier.
I am really delighted at the presentation we were able to offer to prospective buyers, and in particular for the nice clean lines presented in each and every room. The feedback we had was excellent, with some specific comments l like.....”who did you find to set it up so beautifully” which I believe I should pass on to you.
Thanks, Dan, and Team for a very appealing effect.
I rang your company last minute for help and had the brilliant good fortune to be put through to Karl.
Karl partially staged our Remuera home, the SAME week of inquiry. Friday morning was our execution day and he made it so great that I quickly realised that our untouched rooms needed his magic touch as well. I asked him to do more and he did - the same night!! Friday, end-of-day, tired and over it and that fabulous man went back to your offices, found more gorgeousness. In no time we were transformed everywhere not just partially.
Outstanding talent and exceptional service...thought you might like to know :)
Just to let you know the very favourable comments we are getting from visitors to the house regarding homestaging. Yesterday while I was there watering the lawn, agents from locals Barfoots offices came through on their weekly caravan. I know several, and without my raising the subject, they said how well the house was furnished.
Thank you very much for Ingrid’s work on the property. She was incredibly professional, understood immediately the look I wanted for the house and mostly was so enthusiastic about how to make it look amazing. And she achieved that in spades – made me want to move back in! I was very happy in my decision to go with The Look.
I recently organised the sale of my Grey Lynn home from Austin, Texas. Long distance selling is not an easy proposition. You totally rely on the integrity of the people helping you. Hiring The Look to stage my home was one of the best decisions I made in my selling process. Not only were they totally responsive, prompt and clear in their communication to me, they did a fantastic job of the staging! My house looked great and sold on the second open day. It had previously been on the market unstaged for 2 months with no nibbles. They made the place look really wonderful, like a home worth living in. I unreservedly recommend them on all accounts. Top marks!
Thank you once again for your professional services. Your selection of furniture had enhanced our home and brought us many compliments during our open homes. We thank you for being so easy to deal with and we look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

Miles and I used The Look to stage a property in Glenfield recently. It showed off the house to tremendous advantage. Your company had the best deal, 5 weeks rather than four, which allows the photographers in, on the market and to auction.. You then kindly allowed 3 extra days at no cost, so the place looked fantastic for the on-site auction. We believe for every dollar we spent with you we got $10 back. Well over CV in this market, our thanks to you and your team.

I would just like to say thanks so much for such a fabulous job you have done on staging our house. You have completely transformed it and I can't believe it could look so fantastic. This has by far been the best money I have spent on the house and it makes the house look like a million dollar property. You couldn't have chosen more appropriate furniture (I know it's not about me, but I do love it!!) and it is just perfect for the style of the house.
Through doing price comparisons, you were slightly cheaper compared to others in the market so that was a bonus too!
I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who asks. Thanks again and I will look forward to using you next time.
Personally, whilst I obviously thought twice about blowing what seemed like a lot on getting my house staged to sell it, I really think that the house looked absolutely fabulous. I sold the place within 10 days. It's a great house, but I certainly think every penny of the home-staging was worthwhile. It gave the house such a 'complete' and elegant finish. My own gear would never have achieved such a classy look – and I think it really helped to engage people in the emotion of the house. So thanks very much - I'll be back when I need to sell another house!
We wish to thank The Look home staging for their excellent presentation in creating the perfect ambience at the above address.
It was a significant factor in our purchasing this apartment. Colours, proportion, theme furniture and accoutrements displayed convinced us it was a larger apartment than it actually is and it was greatly enhanced.
We thus purchased many items from The Look and are extremely happy.

Thank you for the Home Staging yesterday. Photography was completed today and it has come out superbly!
I thought the basket of kids toys was a great touch.
