I have spent many years selling and refurbishing vintage homes in Historic neighborhoods, such as San Francisco, Healdsburg and Santa Rosa and on the East coast. In Northern Virginia, I was on the committee to establish Historic Designation for Fairlington Villages, built by the government to house all the G.I.'s returning from World War II. These townhouses and condominiums were the largest conversion in the United States and home to many congressman since it is a short commute to Capital Hill.
Presently, I live in Sonoma County, the Northern California wine region and as we all know, preparing homes to sell usually begins with the basics...and my first stop is Healdsburg Plaza Paints.I can praise all the staff but one person that stands out is Mark. Mark understands the depth of color, its impact and provides reliable advice because he takes the time to LISTEN. He has spent many hours with me going over paint chips, paint combinations and historical colors, light exposure and all kinds of subtleties that most people don't think about.
Paint is one of the cheapeast "quick fixes" when inititating the marketing of your home. It not only provides warmth, distinction between walls and moldings but it cleans and refreshes a home for a new buyer.
Well the funny part of this story is that ALL (females that is) who have ever sent our partners to the paint store to pick up a bucket of paint KNOW that we would never do so with out having the paint already mixed and ready to go! Apparently Plaza Paint feels the SAME WAY! I saw this sign, strategically placed behind the counter, and thought I would share it with you if you ever need any support if you are in a similar situation.
