30 Dec WHAT A STYLISH YEAR THAT WAS: INSIDE AND OUTSIDE STORY OF BGPS 2015
As the new year approaches, it is our tradition to look back at our journey in the previous year. It was challenging and fun. There had been bumps on the road and untapped territories to work with. We went full steam ahead. In doing so, we uncovered our milestones. Here’s a look-back at BG Property Styling’s 2015.
During the year, we’ve polished many diamonds of homes and created so many beautiful places with thanks to our terrific teams of professionals. HNY to you all!!
And behind the scenes; read on!
January: A New Look
February: Our Third Win
For three consecutive years, BG Property Styling has won Best of Houzz Australia’s Customer Service category – a fate decided by the members of the Houzz Community in Australia.
March: We Hit Page One
After a few months of our organic marketing efforts, we finally hit page one of Google’s Search Engine Results Page (SERP) on all of the keywords we were targeting.
April: Our Second Nomination
We got nominated as a finalist to the 2015 Northern Beaches Local Business Awards under the Home Style/Furnishings category. We were also a finalist in 2014 under the Home Improvement/Renovations category.
May: Our First Nomination
BG Property Styling was selected as a finalist for the NSW Business Chamber Business Awards 2015 under the Excellence in Business Ethics and Excellence in Innovation categories. The Founder and Director, Belinda Grundy, was a finalist for the Business Leader category. It was BG Property Styling’s and Belinda’s first attempt to join.
August: The Great Trip
The BG Property Styling team finally met for the first time after years of communicating online. Belinda Grundy flew her Virtual Assistants for a 10-day trip to Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
September: Our Social Responsibility
We took part in a silent auction in support of Fight on the Beaches – an organisation that aimed to raise funds to support a researcher on the quest for cancer treatment research. That same month, a bulk order for Belinda Grundy’s book, Rightsize Your Home: The Empty Nester’s Guide for a Stress-Free Downsize, was made.
November: We’re on Air
Belinda Grundy got an invitation from Sky News Business (Channel 602) to share her thoughts about the relationship between rightsizing and property makeover.
It was a busy year. In between, we helped makeover properties that got sold with a short Time-On-Market and with unexpected profits. So let us take this time to thank everyone who made this year more beautiful than we’ve actually thought: you. You are the Real Estate Agents we’ve worked with, the property vendors we’ve spoken to, the suppliers and trades we hassled (!!), and just about anyone that we’ve hollered for the past 12 months (not to mention our followers). A huge thank you. Let’s all look forward to a wonderful 2016!
