Charlotte Dyslin, SVP Sales/Marketing, Helen Kaminsky North America/Europe

“Heather worked for Helen Kaminski as a freelance merchandiser for our top tier department store partners, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, in Tampa and Naples, Florida. In this capacity she also trained store staff on the benefits and features of the product offering. Heather was very thorough in her feedback and suggestions to the Helen Kaminski team and did a great job merchandising our collection in our key partner doors. She approached this freelance position with great professionalism and industry knowledge and I felt very comfortable having Heather represent the Helen Kaminski brand.”

“I recently worked with Heather on a listing for a home that she did the Interior Design work and Staging on. The home was one of the most beautifully decorated homes that I have seen. When you walked thru the front door –it took your breath away. The staging was stunning. The majority of leads generated for the listing were as a result of Buyers seeing the photographs on-line. Several of Buyers even flew in from out of state to see the home. The showings were excellent and the home sold. I would recommend her Design and Staging services highly since I believe they made a dramatic impact on this home.”
