My two passions in life have always been people and property. So my home makeover business was an obvious route for me as it allows me to combine the two. I love transforming homes, and I love making a difference to peoples’ lives.
My experience in the property market first started over 20 years ago as an estate agent. During that time, I earned a reputation for my helpful, caring and honest approach, sometimes not what is immediately associated with estate agency!
I learned what turns people on – and off - a property and became increasingly asked to advise vendors and landlords on how best to present their properties for sale or rent.
I found I was enjoying that aspect of the property market more and more so, in 2016, I trained and qualified as a Certified Home Staging and Styling Professional, and ‘Mo Gooch Home Makeovers’ was born.
Previously based in Hertfordshire, I now reside on the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula so I’ve relocated my service to North Wales!
I’ve worked on many different projects over the years and each scenario has been unique. From dark, dated cottages that needed decluttering and brightening up, to brand new showhomes that required furnishing from scratch, I always know exactly how to make a property more attractive without it costing a fortune.
I’m always mindful of a client’s budget, time frame and personal circumstances and adapt my service accordingly. With a real knack for creatively utilising what’s already on hand in the property, I never suggest a client spends money on things unnecessarily. Where the addition of new accessories is necessary, I always source quality products at a cost-effective price.
Some scenarios have been very challenging and required compassion and understanding as well as creativity and a gift for styling and staging. I like to think that’s why I receive so many lovely testimonials from my clients.
Some are below, the rest under the ‘testimonials’ section. I’m almost prouder of these than my actual makeovers.
“I’ve no idea how you do these makeovers, Mo. Our dated holiday rental now looks like a show house! Thankyou for being so wonderful.”
- Mrs J Jackson, Newton by the Sea
“Mo was lovely to work with and gave me a lot of emotional support in what was a difficult task, the house being where I grew up, a house full of memories of my father who had died the year before but whose belongings were everywhere, and my mother who had recently gone into a home.”
- Ms S Cavalerri, Bedford
“Thank you for all your help and cheerful disposition. You were a joy and a breath of fresh air.”
- Mr & Mrs Tobin, Tyne & Wear
“Our house in Hertfordshire had been on the market for a year, I’d had to move to Somerset for work, and my partner was on standby to have heart bypass surgery. Despite these extremely stressful and challenging circumstances, Mo remained highly professional and supportive and, with minimal ado, made our home so attractive to viewers that we had an offer on the first day of remarketing.”
- Ms. L. Richards, Somerset
“Mo consulted me on all aspects and implemented some great ideas and enhancements. This was done in an efficient, thoughtful and tasteful manner, with no impact on my work and schedule.”
- Mr D Mountford, Berkhamsted
