An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.
This letter of reference is being written as a reference for the interior design company Jostar Interiors Ltd. I contacted Jostar Interiors Ltd. in the spring of 2012 to assist me with some minor house renovations. My home needed some necessary renovations such as painting and replacement of floor coverings. I also wished to have some professional advice as to color scheme changes and general updating of our kitchen and living space. Our home is fifteen years old and really required a face-lift. Joanna Starko and her associate met with me in my house to determine exactly what needed to be done and what I wished to achieve. After preliminary discussions they returned with plenty of ideas, suggestions, and samples of colors and products. They were most helpful in providing alternatives according to my needs and wants, and made revisions, which allowed me to stay within my budget. I had a great many questions about details, big and small, and they were able to provide the necessary information, or had a contact whom they could consult. Their expertise and attention to detail were most evident. The contractors they hired to do the actual work were experienced, competent, and respectful of our living space. They did not rush and completed quality work. A representative of Jostar Interiors Ltd. was often on site to make sure the job was being carried out as agreed. The contractors themselves supplied some helpful suggestions related to their specific trade. We are most pleased with the updated look of our home. The staff at Jostar Interiors Ltd. was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. They kept the momentum of the renovation going and addressed concerns until we were satisfied. I would recommend this company and Joanna Starko without reservation as a reliable design consultant.
