Joe and I strive for nothing but smooth sailing and happy customers!! I always try and open another level of communication with current technology. If you have an iPhone I can text right from my iPad or iMac. It is super easy and sometimes when our clients are in class or meetings it is just easier to look at the phone and text back. Do I like talking on the phone with clients—-OF COURSE!! 60 texts = a 10 minute conversation. I can sum certain things up in a matter of minutes opposed to feeling like someone is being neglected because I didn’t see their text! It’s a double edge sword…just like everything in life. I do feel that in this day in age, society in general, is all about convenience. So we just go with the flow and bend with the times and use our technology at our fingertips.
This gal is fierce, confident and her sense of style and ability to pull her “vision” off is AMAZEEEEEE!! This journey all started with a phone call and an email sent out June 9th 2014. Their builder, who we have done work with for over a decade, was commissioned to re-build their house after a major flood. This project took place a block from the beach and boy oh boy is it quite the property. A nice amount of rooms and a fresh clean start. Shari was on a mission with her biggest groupie behind her…her lovely hubs Matt. Matt’s disposition is very mild yet funny and just gives this firecracker what she wants trusting her vision is to be executed thoroughly. Let’s be honest here…this is isn’t her first dance at the rodeo. They have a gorgeous home in Northern NJ that has her touch, a house in FL that she designed and decorated, and keep in mind before the flood damage in the shore home she had a heavy hand in re-creating her “vibe” there as well. Now with the shore project about 80% done that means that Colossus has completed the mission of taking her selections and ideas and making them a reality.
I have met ALOT of women over the years in this biz and Shari is one of a kind!! Her passion for getting her way is infectious. It sounds bratty but if you saw her delivery it’s stern and confident and she will not waiver. Matt smiles and looks for other opinions but let’s be honest…..she knows what she talking about. With some digging I have come to find out she is a cusper cross over!! She is a Capricorn/Aquarius which in layman’s terms means “creative- control freak”. BINGO!!! It was a match made in heaven. I knew we would get along in this lengthy costly project!!
The pics I posted DO NOT do this property any justice!! The chapter has closed for the project and it is bitter sweet for Joe and I. We are elated to see the final product and how happy the client is…but also will be missing the erratic emails, texts and phone calls of switches and second guessing. The one thing I can say solid is that when Shari had a second thought and changed her mind—the outcome exceeded what we all thought!!
We are so grateful to meet really cool people while doing what we love. Shari (& Matt) …..your officially my #wcw – (woman crush wednesday)
Just a girly girl in a male dominated industry trying to get my point across…
