Some Fun Facts
From the Blog
I have a hunch the $80k we spent, got us an extra $300-400k. Thank you for your suggestions and co-ordinations. I have been raving your praises as I am grateful you were able to help us ease through the process rather than be run down by it!

Our agent was able to draw out pre-auction bids for our house and we sold yesterday evening, exchanging contracts for a great price. We are really really happy with the outcome, and I am sure that the preparation and styling contributed to the level of buyer interest, and would have repaid the costs many times over.
L & P, Artarmon, February 2016
I wanted to thank Belinda Grundy for inspiring me to push ahead with finishing the house despite the many challenges we have faced along the way.
Moyra, Seabeach, August 2015
I heard that your company was incredibly respectful of people's belongings through your makeovers. You care about recycling and really took the time to separate everything before tossing. I now have a happy mother and my spare time back! I recommend BG Property Styling's service to anyone who has a similar property makeover issue! Anyone who is moving and needs a team to help. It was really wonderful to have the support of 5 people instead of trying to do it all myself! Thank you for work!
Kim, Waverton, June 2015
The price sold was well over the price estimation. The feedback from Saturdays inspection was that the clear out and clean-up of the house made it so much easier for the potential purchasers to make their decision. Thank you and your team for all your help and hard work.

Very likely to recommend them again. Their ability to communicate with the owner and the relationship that they achieve make the process of presenting homes for sale a much easier one. They are very professional and their results are outstanding.
Gordon Archibald, LJ Hooker Newport
Belinda is highly professional; courteous and fun to work with. Her QA systems are amazing and the communication smooth and flowing. She has high integrity and also loves really listening to what the client really wants. I highly recommend her.
Jo Gillies, Archisoul
Have worked with BG property styling over the years providing my services as a builder to make over various properties for pre sale and for existing clients that want to update there homes by employing the services go BG styling.
Andrew Howard, Howard Construct
Belinda offered some great suggestions on what we could do to improve our property prior to sale. She understood we didn't have a lot of time nor money to invest in preparing for sale and was able to point out those improvements which would have maximum impact. Her critique of our home was thoughtful and constructive.
Sheryn, Cromer, October 2014
We were recommended Belinda from BG Property Styling by the agent selling the property. At first we were reluctant to have someone, who we did not know, come in tell us to do what we thought knew we needed to do! Downsizing a hoarders paradise is very emotional! Belinda was lovely, very professional & respectful. She gave us her advice & was not pushy & did not try to force anything we did not feel comfortable with. The result is we have culled years of accumulated Stuff, our home feels lighter & more spacious. Her ideas for styling were great - the house looks gorgeous! We would definitely recommend Belinda to anyone who is downsizing or just needing to update & re invigorate their home.
Olivia, Avalon, April 2014
Having worked together with Belinda of BG Property Styling on over 70 combined projects, I can say that I have seen her work her magic with all types of situations, sales, sites and sellers. Belinda always brings empathy, organisation and direction to each of her projects. And the fantastic results for her clients - whether selling their homes or staying - speak for themselves.
Nov & Shell, Divine Designs
BG Property Styling is definitely good at its craft--transformation. Clients will not only be visually satisfied with the outcome, but financially satisfied as well. Their skills and professionalism in turning a property into something more than the pocket could imagine is undoubtedly fantastic.
Deanne Bennett, Bennett Property Management
We hired Belinda Grundy who my wife found on Houzz. We live in Nevada in the United States and had a house in Willoughby to sell. The house had been rented for 9 years and was in need of substantial renovation to bring it up to the standard required for market. It was going to be a fairly major renovation costing approx $160,000. Belinda advised what was required, supplied quotes and then once accepted acted for us overseeing the renovations and then staging. We could not be happier the house sold quickly for more than anticipated we could not have had a better result thanks to Belinda and her team. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
Kerry & Sandy, Willoughby, October 2014
As a real estate agent, your service is suitable for all types of vendors I am sure! Upon reception, I have no doubt the increase in value you have added to the sale of this property is $400k, the place was not in a good state! I have received a very positive feedback from buyers and potential sellers that there is nothing to do but enjoy the home. I would certainly let my new clients know of the service and potential outcome. Well done!
John McManus, Principal/Licensee, LJ Hooker Willoughby/Artarmon
I found Belinda to be highly professional and personable. She understands what a stressful time this is for her clients – not to mention that her services may require the err.. shifting out of some less desirable but sentimental items of furniture and decor!
Jane, Neutral Bay, February-March 2014
There was nothing holding us back from taking BG Property Styling’s service. Belinda made realistic suggestions regarding the styling of our home in preparation for sale. She was recommended by our real estate agent, Geoff Grist. She has an excellent manner with clients.
Margaret and David, Mosman, January 2014
We engaged BG property styling to assist us to prepare our home for sale. The initial consultation was quite reasonably priced and from there we could retain them to assist us throughout the whole process (which we did) or take the initial report and run with it ourselves. We could choose how much or how little we wanted to do ourselves and could also specify our budget.
Kate, Allambie Heights, November 2013
BG advised on my home renewal, including inside and outside. Very professional and cost effective. Provided answers to the questions asked and remained focused throughout.
Peter Casey, Wheeler Heights, September 2013
We recently hired Belinda and her team to come in to our 90 year old neighbours home and get it immaculate ready for sale. It was in original state and Belinda and her amazing team were able to transform it into a house immaculate and ready for sale within days. I cannot explain how easy she made the whole event for us, considering what could have been a very stressful time, it was made so much easier by getting Belinda and her teams help. She coordinated everything from packers, eBay sellers, rubbish removal to cleaners, salvation army pick up and gardeners. We are forever grateful for meeting Belinda Grundy and forever grateful for all the help they gave us. I will be highly recommending BG Property Styling to everyone i know.
Simone, Belrose, July 2013
My husband and I had decided that we wanted to undertake some major renovations to our house. Neither of us had ever done any significant renovations in the past and on the recommendation of our builder we contacted Belinda to help us plan our renovations. Belinda was able to look at our house with ‘fresh eyes’ and give us some fantastic ideas on how we could bring our tired 1970s style house into the 21st Century. Belinda was conscious of our budget and made suggestions to keep us within our price range. I would recommend anyone who is thinking of renovating to contact Belinda, who will help you create a great plan for your ‘new’ home.
Angela Counsel, Cromer Heights, June 2013
Nothing was holding us back from taking BG Property Styling’s service. I knew the value it would add to the presentation of my home. We sold our home to the first buyer that inspected it, even before it was officially listed on the market! We would recommend BG Property Styling to anyone looking to sell their home, or simply improve the interior design of their current home.
Rebecca Rusten, Belrose, March 2013
I didn’t hold back from taking their services because BG Property Styling was recommended by Geoff Grist. BG Property Styling has a degree of organisation of which I would have been incapable myself. I would recommend them to anyone inexperienced in the travails and tragedies of house flogging!
Julian Short, Mosman, March 2013
Geoff Grist not only sold our flat for the price we wanted but he did it in record time. He kept us informed every step of the way and explained his sales method thoroughly with a working binder full of examples of each step in the process. He is the kind of agent who puts in the hours necessary to make sure your property has every chance to be seen by potential buyers (extra open houses, longer hours, etc.). Also, the extra touch of paying for a stylist to come in and prepare our home for show was invaluable and really makes the properties he sells stand above the rest in photographs and open houses. I felt he had my interest in mind 100% and did not play games.

I am a professional renovator and engaged BG Property Styling to assess my recent renovation towards the end of the project. This was an extremely valuable exercise to have another professional cast a fresh set of eyes over our project . One particular suggestion made regarding the colour selection for the new pool waterline tiles totally transformed a problem area. I highly recommend BG property Styling as they are extremely competent, personable and in- tune with the Sydney market.
Bernadette Janson, The School of Renovating
We didn’t think twice when our agent convinced us of the value of Belinda and her services. Specifically, we were given an objective view on what we needed by a professional who knows what works to impress prospective buyers. It reduced our stress by increasing our comfort level with what we were doing and giving ourselves the best chance of selling. It provided fantastic photos that captured interest – especially on the internet. We recommend BG Property Styling services to anyone selling a home for all the reasons above especially the reduction in stress.
Pamela Low, Wheeler Heights, September 2012
Thank you so much for your help in selling our home in only 2 weeks. You walked through our home and looked at it through the eyes of a potential buyer. You gave us wonderful ideas on how to present the house for sale. It was no longer our home but a ‘business transaction’ and we took your ideas on board and worked very hard to create beautiful house for sale. It was a pleasure to work with you.
Janice, Narrabeen, August 2012
From the start, the benefits of Belinda’s guidance, coaching and encouragement helped us to make good decisions when it came to picking fittings etc. In addition, I was so happy to see that you could work in existing furniture rather than just overall makeover with hired goods. We’ve had a great turn out for the open homes. We’ve had 23 groups the first week, tons of revisits during the week and 8 people last weekend! We’ve already received an offer and we’re expecting another offer later this week. , Mostly the benefits are long term as I will use what I’ve learnt on our next property!
Shelly Willingham, Drummoyne, April 2011
Well girls, there was a lot accomplished in such a short time. It was great to get another perspective on the overall picture. I appreciated your patience, mindfulness and your experienced expertise.
Caroline, Terrey Hills, March 2011
Belinda and I worked together recently when she was hired to sort through the house of an elderly woman who had moved into an aged-care facility. The house was in serious need of a pre-sale spruce-up after many years of neglect.
Marton, Diamond Blue Removals, February 2011
It is refreshing to get a different approach on how to present a home. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and don’t actually see what is needed and how to make things more attractive. As much as it is difficult to hear that some special treasure, just doesn’t do it anymore its welcomed advice and we have certainly acted on your suggestions. There are so many mixed emotions when selling and it often clouds your judgement. It would take a lot of worry out of the dilemma of knowing what is best to keep and what needs to be culled!
Sandy & John, Collaroy, January 2011
As a stay at home dad with two boys and a wife in a professional I.T Job, I can say I needed a few tips on the house keeping. Out of all the things BG Property Styling did for us, the best thing was their suggestion for me to put up a new washing line and where .
Bill, Newport, December 2010
Hi Belinda, thank you for inviting me to give some feedback now that we are more than half way through a large home organising job. I moved house several months ago and I have never had the time to really sort and unpack what has accumulated to being year’s worth of family etc paraphernalia.
Emma, Avalon, November 2010
Belinda is an amazing Home Styler, or in my case – Office styler – after a comprehensive report that she completed for me. She has spent time – with me going through my messy, disorganised office and has assisted me in gaining some control over it. Thanks so much for your expertise in helping me become more organised!
Maria, Belrose, October 2010
Belinda’s service is excellent: after the initial meeting and priority list, we went to work with a vengeance! What difference it made in my life: I joyously got rid of things I didn’t need, decluttering my life as I decluttered my home.
Be, St Ives, September 2010
Thanks so much for coming at such short notice. We have been going like the clappers over the last few days – settled on the new place Friday, cleaned, moved furniture, etc etc over the weekend for photos today.
Bern, Collaroy, August 2010
Hi Belinda – Good luck for awards. Belinda Grundy is an easy person to deal with. She is passionate about her business & providing a quality service to her clients. She understands the boundaries of giving feedback about improving a home without being critical of individual tastes.
