As Realtor®’s and Certified Decorating Professionals®, Laurie Cote and Jacqui DiCenso formed ReVamped Interiors to fill a need in their real estate marketplace. In an area with such a shortage of inventory, they realized that the most important and beneficial way to help a buyer find a home (or for that matter, help a seller get the most value for their’s) is to enlighten them on the possibilities the home offers.

It’s evident when you work with this team that their experience benefits both the client’s or seller’s they engage with.  ReVamped will work relentlessly to help you get the most value for your home (or—prevent you from making a change that could have no return on your investment.)

ReVamped Interiors takes home design, redesign or staging to a whole new level. Not only will they go room-by-room inside your home but will also make suggestions on the curb appeal — therefore providing a complete home assessment
