We inherited my sister’s Maryland townhouse this past spring.  The clutter, the old mismatched furnishings and dingy interior made for a poor presentation for sale. David immediately had recommendations on cleaning crews, painters, junk removal as well as changing out many hardware items that needed replacement such as electrical switches. With his eye toward decorating, he helped choose wall paint colors, new paint schemes for kitchen cabinets, restoration of classic glass and brass door handles as well as new light fixtures. As soon as the immediately-needed repair items were completed, he then carefully staged the townhouse for an open house presentation which fetched an additional $10,000 over expected listing value during the first week of the sale.  David’s attention to detail is remarkable, He is easy to work with and reliable on any task delegated to him in the preparation of a property for decoration or sale. Our recommendation of his services is unconditional.

We love our renovated master bath that David designed. We knew what we wanted to keep and we knew the type of shower we were hoping could be put in. David listened, developed 3 designs and presented them. We immediately knew one of them was the right one. David also recommended the contractor we ended up going with for the work. During the renovation when problems arose as I think they always will David was available for consultation and advice. The renovation took more time than we expected but it was totally worth it to take our time and get each part as we wanted and the final result is wonderful!

David, of Be Smart Homes, remodeled and decorated my townhouse in Boston.   Then 3 years later when I had to move he came back to stage it as well.   In a down market, my townhome sold for more than any other unit in my complex at that time, in only 6 weeks.   My realtor was so happy and so was I.   That is not all; not only did the new buyer like my home, she wanted to by all the furnishing, extra paint, and decor.    I so recommend using Be Smart Homes to help sell your home.

My husband was ill for many years, and as his needs changed our living area became a cluttered overcrowded hospital room. When he died at home I didn't want to live there anymore, but my house was"Upside Down" and I couldn't afford to move. David saved me, he took over, got rid of the clutter, threw out what didn't work, kept what did and changed the look of some good pieces by refinishing them in colors I liked. The walls were a dingy white, he made custom colors with the accent walls in deeper tones. Knowing I had a limited income, he scoured thrift stores for great furniture that not only fitted the space but me and my tastes. The accessories he picked brought it altogether transforming it into a home I was proud to show off to friends and neighbors. I even got several unsolicited offers for more than the appraised value, one wanted it fully furnished so he could rent it out seasonally. So I highly recommend David, whether you have a room you hate, a house that is dated, or if you are trying to sell a "Ho Hum " house to one that says " WOW" to prospective buyers.

Thank goodness for David Frauenheim and his gift of taking total chaos and turning it into the 'after' picture from the  "Organize your Clutter" section of  Home Beautiful magazine.

A busy life with 2 teens, 2 stores to manage and an animal rescue to direct,  the "I'll get to this later"  piles build up all around; counters, end tables, dining room table etc. Then the phone rings with news that the family, of course, the neat-nick side, is arriving on the weekend.

Past organizers have left me with more work then I started with;  trying to find that important information that was on top and now is nowhere to be found. Possessions were stuffed into nooks and crannies and sometimes valuable broken.

I highly recommend David's organization services to anyone needing support with the cleaning and organizing of small to major home or office spaces.

PS  An added bonus is David's eye for decorating and design,  so if you are looking to energize your home or office space, he can make suggestions suitable to your current environment and aspirations.
