I am very grateful for all my clients. Each job has been a unique puzzle that I am able to help solve. It has been my pleasure to serve you in this way! Tracy
To Whom it may concern:
This past summer we decided to return to our rental home after living away for 11 years. We had no idea where to start with the remodeling, especially living two hours away. Having read great reviews about Tracy Anderson/Gravning, we decided to call her.
It was an absolute joy working with Tracy from the start to finish of our remodeling project. Upon our first meeting, she listened intently to what we wanted, and from there on, helped us carefully choose from the options she found.
Everything from the workers, new tile and flooring, whitewashing of the logs, the new countertops, paint, light fixtures, wrought iron stairway, furniture, rugs, and wallpaper was presented to us always in a professional manner by Tracy. She always let us have a the final say, letting us decide, but her choices were superb and we had no trouble at all making decisions.
We would recommend Tracy highly to anyone who needs help with their home or business. I t was well worth the little extra to have Tracy in charge of our project. She was willing to step aside anytime to help cut costs, but we simply couldn't put her aside, because she was so excellent at what she did.
Thank you Tracy, for helping us turn our rental property into a showcase home!

Tracy Anderson is an amazing, creative talent! I am so grateful I contacted her to stage my home for sale. We met once and she put together a professional proposal and I loved everything she chose so much. She even chose my favorite colors without my input. She's hightly intuitive as well. I would hightly recommend using Tracy for any staging or interior design project you have. I've told so many people about how amazing she is. I'm a busy Mom and working professional so she made the process very efficient which I was beyond thankful for. The finished product is beautiful. I would not have been able to do this without her help. She has certianly found her calling.
Working with Tracy Anderson on our remodel was a wonderful experience. Tracy's eye and vision for design is great. She really did her homework in getting a feel for the atmosphere we were looking for in our new concept and she absolutely nailed it. I greatly appreciate her continuous
"gut-checks" with us to ensure we remained on the same page. It was so rewarding to see the final product and the feedback from our guests has been incredible. I highly recommend Tracy for anyone who has a residential or commercial project on the horizon. Tracy has loads of talent as both an artist and a designer. She has been a joy to work with and we will definitely be working with her in the future whenever a design need arises. Thanks Tracy!

Tracy, I saw the results of your good staging work in our farm house for the first time yesterday and it was better than the photos portray!
You absolutely met our expectations of creating a sensible wow factor inthe first impressions upon entering our reconstructed late 1800's farm house. The bones of our old house, recently reconstructed with solid craftwork are now finely finished withthe texture and colors of the furniture, accessories and accent paint that you provided in your staging work. Now we have a complete and really inviting space that is appealing to intersted buyers. Wehave already heard very positive comments back from potentioal buyers viewing our property and others indicatinginthe success of your work and its contgribution to the appeal of our house.
For others that are considering enhancing the appeal of their property for sale or for their own use and enjoyment, I'd recommend they give you a strong consideration. You delivered what you promised. The results are appreciated. You were great to work with, you stayed in budget setting it up and your accomplished the worle task for us faster than you promised. All in all, good work and thanks for our creativitiy Tracy. I don't see how we could have ever acheived the effectiveness that you achieved, with such a modest budget andin such a timely manner. Magic and it was done!

Tracy is very caring, friendly and easy to work with. She did an excellent job selecting all the carpet, ceramic tile, cabinets and paint for our new home.

I appreciated Tracy explaining why one way worked better than another when she staged our home. I was able to use that new knowledge when we moved into our new home in another town.

I had never worked with a designer before but as we looked at a complete kitchen and dining room remodel, everything seemed so overwhelming, that I contacted Tracy Anderson to help me start the process. What I liked about Tracy was her ability to prioritize every step of the way from the cabinets, to flooring to paint colors. She went with me to pick out the cabinets, countertops and the hardwood floors. It was a fun process and exactly what I needed……to have Tracy help me think outside the box. I valued her opinions on what colors and textures went together and I knew she gave me an honest opinion but yet I felt comfortable being able to express my own likes and dislikes. Once all the decisions were made, it was so nice to have her check in with me on how the whole process was going. And when there was a problem, she was there to offer ideas and get things going again. Most everything has now been installed and thinking I wouldn’t need Tracy anymore, I have discovered I would like her to help me with the final touches. Working with Tracy has been such a positive and fun experience. I couldn’t have had the wonderful results without her!

I needed new furniture for a while but dreaded the thought of having to go shop for it and to make the decisions. Tracy took me into the furniture store and directed me to look at a few things to see which features I prefered. In 30 minutes I had my sofa, loveseat, buffet and a dining room table all paid for! My house doesn't even seem like the same house now! It seems like I have more space, warm inviting colors and everything she picked out for me blends in with what I already had yet makes it all look new and fresh! Definitely glad I had Tracy to walk me through that!
I hired Tracy to help me renovate my late mothers home. The house was filled with a lot of her things still even though I was living there as well. Tracy came in with kindness and had one of her assistants help me sort through and pack up my mothers things. I cannot tell you how much of a help that was. It is overwhelming to lose a parent. Tracy was easy to work with and she took what was my mothers home and made it mine. She was within budget and was always communicating with me on where we were at. In the end I was blown away at how she understood my likes and dislikes and I am very satisfied with my new home.
We are so pleased with our homes new look. Tracy was so easy to work with, a great listener and came in below our budget. The only thing we regret is not using her sooner. When we move Tracy will be the first person we bring into our new home! Thank you!

Tracy Anderson is a joy to work with. She is not only a talented designer, she is incredibly efficient and super resourceful with little direction. Tracy took on every design challenge with determination to solve for the best outcome and amazed us each and every time. Tracy is at the top of my list for any design needs we will have in the future.

My living room has a walkway on every wall and a fireplace. Furniture placement was a challenge. Tracy took me shopping and we purchased a couch, loveseat, lamps, a chaise lounge, coffee table, entry table and a dining room set. It was fun to watch her mix and match pieces so it didn't look like just a "set". As I live an hour away from Tracy she wasn't able to be here when the furniture was delivered. I had several friends help place the furniture and we just couldn't get anything to look right. Not even my mother could figure it out. Tracy came over and looked at it for about two minutes then moved things around and placed it all at an angle and it was perfect! It opened it up more so you felt pulled into the room instead of being blocked. I was amazed at how quickly and efficently she works.
As we contemplated putting our house on the market, our realtor suggested we hire Tracy to help us get our home ready. We were apprehensive but knew we needed some assistance. Looking at the before and after pictures has confirmed we made the right decision to hire Tracy. It's amazing what some paint, a few new accessories and some reaarranging can do to change the look of your home. We are very please with the end result.
