Read Denise’s full story below:

1. What do you love most?

I love that our studio is on the cutting edge. Our experienced staff stays current on design trends. We offer our buyers the most up-to-date materials, styles, and finishes so they can personalize their dream home.

2. What is one thing that is special about your studio in your marketplace?

Toll Brothers is the only luxury home builder in the area that offers a Design Studio of this caliber. Our buyers can personalize every single detail of their home.

3. What results have you seen in the customer experience now compared to before the studio opened?

The Design Studio offers the convenience of one-stop shopping for our buyers. We have staged vignettes of kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms. Plus, buyers can see, touch and feel a variety of cabinets, tile, flooring and so much more. Buyers no longer have to spend hours in the car traveling from model to model for ideas.

4. How has the studio had a surprising impact?

We underestimated the impact of the interactive spaces in the Design Studio. Our buyers love them and tell the staff they are easy to use!

5. How have you leveraged your design studio to increase home sales or bolster your brand image?

The Design Studio layout is perfect for hosting events. We invite our prospects, buyers, and agents to the studio regularly. Whether it’s a Wine and Design Event, Top Agent Celebration, or Color Trend Presentation, we love to show off our space.  We’ve even hosted cooking demonstrations in one of our kitchen vignettes!

 

John Peck Division Senior Vice President says…”At the conclusion of the build process, Jane’s on-site training is essential. Creating and building a new Design Studio is truly only half of the customer experience equation,  the other half is ensuring that the staff understands the retail logic behind the way the Studio was built. While nothing is left to chance in terms of layout and merchandising, it’s the staff that can, and must,  maximize the experience, and make full and complete use of all of Jane’s  designed tools and resources.  We found her on- site training (for the sales, design and construction teams)  to be the pinnacle of this entire process and we are now already enjoying the successes that we had hoped for.”

Jane with Lisa McClelland and Denise DiBlasio from Toll Brother’s  Pennsylvania division, plus Kari Armstrong and her talented team at HRI Design, all celebrating at the 2018 Nationals in Orlando.
