Two weeks ago, a client of mine mentioned my services at a retirement community - and it turns out, they were taking bids on furnishing a model unit! PERFECT!
So I got in touch with them, and they had me come out on Monday. Technically, they stopped taking bids, but my client talked me up so much, they made an exception - as long as I had the bid in in under 48 hrs. I opened my big mouth and asked if the others had photos of the furniture they would use, and was told, "No - but if yours does, it would give you a leg up....". D'OH! More work!
I submitted the bid with time to spare, and by the end of the week, the staff proactively e-mailed me that no decision had been made yet. Then I received another e-mail - they are redecorating their pool and patio areas; would I be interested in bidding on that install, too....? YOU BET I WOULD! So I pulled together an amazing set, submitted a bid last Tuesday, and still....nothing. They have been very proactive in letting me know no decision has been made, the holiday had a lot of decision-makers MIA, etc...for them to ask for a second project's bid, I have to think they liked what I did with the first....either that, or they are trying to get another designer to come down on their price.....hopefully, that's not the case....
But the waiting - it's the hardest! I really love the packages I put together for the bids, and would very much like to see them come to fruition. Yes, the check would also be nice, but it's so exciting to see your own "creation" come to life!
It must be the same when agents have a great listing appointment, but the seller says they have other appts set and want to honor them - you know you nailed it, but you have to sweat it out for awhile....
Argent Décor is chock-full of opinions, questions, and general observations that you may or may not find interesting - a little bit of home staging, vacation home furnishing, decor ideas....a little bit of venting....a whole lot of shameless self-promotion!
