Dear Barbara and Jeff:

With great confidence I write this letter of recommendation. For you both personally, and for your colleagues and support team at Pinon Property Placement.

We have worked together for well over a decade, and have collaborated in the successful sale of many homes in Santa Fe. I learned years ago to trust your design sensibilities and to rely upon your clear knowledge of what is important in successfully staging homes in the Santa Fe market. I also greatly appreciate the way that you care for our clients. You always remain focused on the job at hand......getting our listed properties under contract and getting the pending contracts closed. When time is tight and anything is needed from you in very short order, you always make it happen. No matter how inconvenient it is for you or your colleagues. Or how unreasonable the request is!

From giving staging consultations, to staging homes, to placing home-tenders in homes, to arranging for ongoing repairs and maintenance and then overseeing the work and then often times caring for homes that have been purchased by my clients but are sometimes used rarely, you always deliver what is needed.

If anyone considering your services wishes to speak with me to gain additional insights on your level of service, know that I welcome those call.

We've worked with Barbara and Jeff numerous times staging our clients’ listings. We can attest to their consummate professionalism and design skill in preparing homes to look and feel their best! We know the impression a property’s appearance has on a prospective buyer is extremely important, and we’ve had great success selling homes in each and every case when they have staged for us. Whether with furnishings alone or with a home manager in residence, the benefit of their services is in achieving a timely sale at the best price. Barbara is a perfectionist and does not let any detail go unattended. She and Jeff are easy to work with and strive to make both the homeowner and the broker happy. We highly recommend them! ~ Alan and Anne Vorenberg, Associate Brokers, Sotheby’s International Realty

You all do such a wonderful job for us and it is always a delight to arrive and see the house ready for us to enjoy and relax in.

Thanks so much for everything! It was wonderful to be here and we will see you in a month or so.

Beautiful staging by Piñon Property Placement helped us turn the corner towards the ultimate sale of a unique Santa Fe property. The attention to detail, keen sense of aesthetics, beautiful appointments, and quality customer service made the process easy and enjoyable.
Kudos to Barbara Butler and her team of professionals!

Dear Barbara,

I wanted to thank you—officially—for your wonderful work for my clients at 34 Vista Tesuque. You obviously understood and respected the unique qualities of the contemporary architecture of the home and perfectly fulfilled the owner’s desire to furnish it in a way that would allow a potential buyer to imagine living there in comfort and beauty. Within weeks of your staging the perfect buyer fell in love with their perfect home. And, since I was lucky enough to work with both the seller and the buyer in this instance, I can truly say that everyone was thrilled with your work. Thank you again, and I look forward to the next time we work together to “gild a lily”!
