Hi, I’m Daniella.
Choosing the best property to buy or deciding how to renovate and add value can be stressful. How much will renovations cost? What’s the best way to increase equity? How do I navigate estate agents, builders and planning officers without losing sleep? Relax, take a breath, and let’s talk.
I’m Here to Help
I offer expert and independent 1:1 support through your property buying or renovation journey. I offer a no fee, zero commitment 30-minute introductory call. Whether you need a lot of help or only a little, just drop me a line to chat.
Advice on choosing the right property for your needs and help with property searching.
Rethinking floor plans, design or renovation options to maximise practicality, comfort and style.
Guidance on how best to increase the value of your property and get the most bang for your buck.
Budgets and Sourcing
Second opinion on budgets, quotes from architects, builders and suppliers and value-for-money sourcing of fittings and fixtures.
Full project management of renovations or advice as you manage your own project. Guidance on all the tricky bits, from planning, building regulations and handling sub-contractors.
Art For Your Home
I work with a range of established artists to commission original artworks for your home.
Every person I work with has a different set of needs, so pricing depends on the time and level of expertise you require. I will provide a detailed breakdown of costs for agreement before starting any work.
Introductory phone call (30 minutes): Free
Property search: Weekly rate or 1% of purchase cost.
Renovation project management: Between 15%-20% of the total build cost depending on the size and complexity of the project (see independent information on standard pricing in the industry here and here). I invest a huge amount of time in each project, often visiting sites multiple times per week and closely guiding clients on every aspect of the build, from spatial design and materials sourcing to kitchen plans and budget control.
From My Clients
“Last year, I bought an apartment during the pandemic that needed a complete overhaul. Daniella was instrumental in helping me plan the entire space, including floors and paint colours, but gave me the most input on the kitchen. Now that it’s complete, the kitchen is my favorite room in the apartment, not only beautifully designed, but most importantly, functional.
As someone who has designed and lived in her own spaces over the years, Daniella knows how to combine design choices with the maximum functionality; she also knows how to make design and material choices that maximize a budget.
It was incredibly helpful to have someone with so much experience guide me through a daunting renovation process.”
“I wanted to do a kitchen and bathroom redesign. I managed my own renovation, but needed guidance as it was my first time. Daniella helped me figure out what would maximise value at resale and how to save money sourcing high-quality materials. She’s got a great eye and is a joy to work with.”
“Daniella helped me find my current home. She understood my needs, narrowed down the search area and pointed me to a property I never would have considered. Right now, she’s project managing its full redesign and renovation with an architect and building team she knows and trusts. I feel extremely fortunate to have her on my side.”
