Testimonials

Sure we can keep telling you how pleased you'll be with our services…but we’d rather you hear it from some satisfied clients.


When asked of Robert DeNofrio, Director of Operations, San Diego Convention Center, On a scale of 1‐10 how would you rate your experience in working with Manda and the team at Smart Design?  “11!”

What value do you believe you receive from working with SMART that you might not receive if you had gone with another design firm? "They take ownership moreso than others would. Normally, once you get the design, it’s complete, but with SMART, they want to make sure everyone is happy with the direction, final outcome, etc. They take a great deal of ownership & pride in the company’s work. It’s more than the paycheck.".

- Robert DeNofrio, Director of Operations

 

I speak with Manda regularly, and ask her to do several design tasks and CAD drawings for our managed commercial properties. I completely rely on her skill set and ability to provide quality work in a timely fashion… which she has consistently performed.

- Jim Reid, Project Manager



"Manda understood and executed our desire for a modern design concept for our executive suite center, PSMSuites.com. It was truly rewarding to hear our tenants comment in such high regard to our newly renovated facilities. We strongly believe our rental rates have increased, and our lease renewals and tenant retention have improved significantly due to the attention to detail that was displayed. Our team will continue to keep Manda at the top of our list of consultants on future projects."

- James Pieri, Jr., Executive Manager

When asked of Joe Kelchlin, Owner of Kelchlin Construction, Are there any other differences you’ve experienced in working with Smart Design compared to the other designers you’ve worked with? "I think they care more about the job than other people. You’re just a number with them."

- Joe Kelchlin, Owner of Kelchlin Construction

 

"I was so grateful I didn't have to take care of all the interior design issues myself. Manda asked a lot of questions about my needs and personal style and provided me with great recommendations. She was easy to work with and very knowledgeable about the construction process. She dealt with the city, the superintendent and the contractors so I could focus on what I know best: teeth!"

- Victor Carrillo, D.D.S.



"Manda spent a lot of time listening to us to learn what we needed, and that made a huge difference in the project’s outcome. Her enthusiasm and spirit made the collaboration really fun, and allowed us to turn a space with a very bland feel into one with the warmth befitting a non-profit."
