A message from Kate Foster, Consultant at Lemon + Lime Interiors. Kate’s role at L+L is to provide excellent advice to our clients about how they can achieve the best price for their properties.
‘Let’s make the most of this – for any of you out there, whether you’re a vendor or estate agent, we are here to help you prepare a property for the market. Some people will just wait until all this is over and then market their house – be in no doubt, the market will take off like a rocket when things get back to normal. Others will need to sell their houses as soon as possible for all sorts of reasons. Please get in touch – we can help you to declutter, advise on colour schemes, provide furniture for empty houses. The whole team at Lemon + Lime are working every day to support our current clients, future clients and the agents we work with.’

In August 2019, I was given the opportunity to work within the Lemon and Lime team, to fulfil an administrative maternity role. This meant helping with the day to day running of the office and being accountable for ensuring there is a paper trail for incoming and outcoming transactions. From carrying out the initial quoting, to the case studies when a project has completed, I have been made to feel a part of the whole process and take great pride in the service we provide to our clients. As time has gone on, my role has evolved and I now incorporate supporting the design team, in my day-to-day tasks. This can be anything from merely picking up the furniture ordering or being on site at properties and ensuring the smooth running of dressing. No two days are the same and the teams light hearted sense of humour but vigilant approach to home staging is nothing but infectious and thoroughly enjoyable to be a part of.
