I contacted Designer Premier to assist my client in finding the perfect designer for her new LoDo condo she purchased. My client was thrilled with the result and the home is beautiful. Excellent referral!

I contacted Designer Premier because I was in need of a Designer to project manage a whole house refresh from beginning to end. This included paint, wood floor refinish, carpet, and design advice. I did not have the time to identify contractors/movers, solicit estimates, schedule, or always be available to ensure contractors showed up, and work was on point.

When I contacted Marina at Designer Premier she explained “Designer Premier matches you with Top-Rated Interior Designers at no cost or obligation”. I briefly explained to her what I wanted and she suggested an in-home interview. I liked that idea because I was able to include other family members in the meeting.

When we met, Marina thoroughly explained her services and the advantages of working with their Designers. They have a set fee schedule, an established work relationship with reliable contractors, and are able to extend discounts to their customer’s that are below retail costs. Marina took copious notes during our meeting and did a walk-thru. Next, she asked us to flip through a photo book and comment on our likes and dislikes. That enabled Marina to select three Designers that she thought would be a good match. She encouraged us to interview all three Designers and suggested that we ask specific questions.

The Designer we selected was well experienced and professional. This is absolutely the way to go! Designer Premier provided that second level of assurance in case things did not go as expected. That isn’t an option when working with an independent Designer. We knew that we could engage Marina at any time during our project if needed.

We are happy with the results and will definitely use Designer Premier again in the near future.

Marina has been at the leading edge of marketing for qualified designers to prospective home buyers for many years in the Denver area. Her ability to match clients with the perfect designer is a service that allows exceptional design reflecting the client’s needs and desire for their individual projects. By doing this, the process is streamlined and a pleasurable experience for all involved. It also facilitates the best selections for any given budget. Highly recommended for modest remodels to ground up construction.

I have referred a number of clients and friends to Marina because she does an excellent job of matching the clients need for interior design work with an interior designer who can handle the project and is a good fit for the client. Because I work with many wonderful interior designers, I am reluctant to recommend any one of them to clients. I just don’t know who will fit with whom. Clients spend hours with their interior designer and it is important that they are compatible. Marina allows me to help my clients or friends find the right person: a duty that I am not capable of performing well on my own.

Every match that Marina has made has been successful and makes me look good!! Good referrals are an important part of my work with clients and I am grateful to have Designer Premier in my back pocket!!!

Marina has been a pleasure to work with. Her ability to listen to my needs, make sense of my ramblings and put that all together to provide a good designer match for my project was spot on. At the same time, Marina gives you the feeling of being well taken care of by a long time friend. She’s professional, courteous and timely and I would highly recommend her services.

I was having a hard time finding the right designer for me, until I found Marina with Designer Premier. Marina made this process so very easy and painless and she quickly matched me to a designer that is just perfect for me. It’s really great as it is a FREE service and there is no upcharge to the professionals she recommends. I highly recommend Marina’s service to anyone who needs a designer, builder or architect.

Thank you Amy for the opportunity to assist you. We are very excited to transform your family room!

We needed help finding a designer for our kitchen remodel. Marina made this process so very easy .She has an amazing ability to match homeowners personalities with the right designer. She was by our side during the whole choosing process and she followed up during the construction to make sure the homeowner/designer relationship is continuing in a positive. I highly recommend Marina’s service. Margie Eagan

Comment from Designer Premier Thank you Margie for recommending our premier matching service! We enjoyed working with you on your kitchen and will be excited when the time comes to do the other design projects we discussed.

When my husband and I decided to relocate from California to Denver, we obtained the services of Gail Wheeler, a realtor with Coldwell Banker. After a short search, we found a 30 year-old condominium in the Polo Club area that had all of the basic location, structural, and floor area attributes that we were looking for but was badly in need of a major interior upgrade.
Before placing our bid we wanted to have a better idea of the costs involved to remodel the home. Gail contracted Marina Dagenais of Designer Premier, who is a matchmaker for clients in need of design professionals. She explained to Marina the scope of the project and described our personalities to her. With this information Marina arranged a meeting with Interior Designer, Ingrid Fretheim, and Bill Hardin of Hardin Builders as she felt that they would be a perfect fit for us and our project. They met with us free of charge to determine the possible design and construction strategy that might take place if the home were purchased. We were so impressed we hired them both.
Shortly after closing, work on the project began with major input from Ingrid and Bill working with me and my husband. The project included a new kitchen with an open space design, the addition of a new office and patio, all new hardwood flooring, construction of a fifth bedroom, all new bathrooms, and the purchase of new furniture, carpeting, etc.
The project was completed on time and on budget thanks to the efforts of Marina, Ingrid and Bill. And all of the work with which we are so happy, took place while we were still living in California.

Amazingly Gifted!! I am thoroughly impressed with Marinas designer match making skills! The designer she paired me with has created a far more beautiful reality than anything I could have envisioned and pulled together on my own. Uniquely interpreting and weaving my individualism throughout the design, my home has been transformed to reflect a new me! LOVE LOVE LOVE my ‘new’ home. I could NOT have found this great of a designer match with out Marinas talent! Thank You Marina!

Comment from Designer Premier D’lana, thank you for this lovely review. I just new that Shawna was going to be the “perfect” designer for you and it excites me that you LOVE your home. That’s why we do what we do:)

Marina and her team at “Designer Premier” were magical, and my home looks amazing!!! What an absolute transformation in just a few short weeks! Every aspect of the project was seamless. From the initial consultation with the designer and color coordinator, to the choice of contractors…not a “hick up”! I must give “major kudos” to her designer and color coordinator (Paula Bennett) , for “bringing to life” a home that looked unbearably institutional! The project included repainting the entire interior of the home, and kitchen cabinet and hardwood floor refinishing. Some other finishing touches were added, including under cabinet and kick lighting, and stainless steel trim accents! I feel truly “blessed” by the encounter with Marina and her team!!! This clients life has been changed by the atmosphere produced by such a team of professional artisans!

Comment from Designer Premier Rick, it was our pleasure to work with you. So glad to hear that we made this experience stress free and life changing for you. Changing peoples lives is what we are all about – as you have discovered changing ones environment will do that. Like you we want every client to walk into there home and feel that it is perfect for them – their haven from the world!

Marina was excellent at matching us with the perfect designer based on our needs and style. She took the time to sit down with us in our home, listen to our plans and ideas, and view and discuss slideshow design examples. She also asked numerous questions to make sure she got a true feel for what we were looking for. When we began the search for a designer I was nervous to use a “random” designer I found online, so I knew using Designer Premier was the way to go. With Marina’s years of experience and knowledge of the designers she recommends, she was able to match us with one that we felt 100% confident with based on our design style and needs. Highly recommend!

 Comment from Designer Premier Hi Traci, thanks for taking the time to write a review for Designer Premier. So glad I could make the process of finding the right designer enjoyable and simple for you.

Marina is amazing and so professional. She really helped me find designer that would suit my needs, preferences and budget. I would recommend this service to anyone looking to obtain a interior decorator to assist them in refreshing their home. It was much easier than interviewing designers myself! Marina’s tried and true method of helping to select a design professional works!

Comment from Designer Premier Karyn, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with Designer Premier. I am thrilled that I was able to connect you with a designer that is such a perfect fit and that you are enjoying working with her.

We had never used a designer before and didn’t quite know where to start until we found Designer Premier. Marina was very responsive and took time to understand our project, our style, and what we wanted to achieve in the design of our home. She then recommended four designers for us to meet and interview. Each of the designers was unique in their style and work but still fit within what we were trying to achieve. Marina provided us with an overview of different designer fee structures, suggested questions to ask the designers and referrals, and answered all of our questions honestly, thoroughly, and unbiasedly but without letting us get off track. We are convinced that in the end, we could have hired any of the four designers and been very satisfied and excited with the outcome. The whole experience in working with Marina demystified the process for us and pointed us in the direction of Denver’s best designers and it was at no direct cost to us (the designers pay for Designer Premier as part of their marketing budgets). Her perception into what we wanted and match-making skills are spot on and we highly recommend her and Designer Premier.

Comment from Designer Premier Thanks Josh for this great review. I enjoyed working with you and Angela and it was exciting to see how you both grew more comfortable with the process. You are quick learners and each interview you asked better questions and were better to evaluate the interview. P.S you totally ROCK!

I moved to Denver in January knowing very few people. My realtor recommended Marina at Designer Premier to help with any remodeling that I would make to a new home. Marina jumped right in and worked with me on a very quick time frame. She set up meetings with a contractor and an interior designer that she felt would be a great fit for me and my project. Both were top notch. They were very conscientious, hardworking and helped me complete all the changes I needed to make to my new property fabulous by my move in date. I would use Marina and her team again and again and would recommend them without reservations to anyone in the remodeling process.

Comment from Designer Premier JoAnne, it was our pleasure to assist you! I am glad that Bob referred us to you and that we could make you move as stress free as possible.

We worked with Marina, at Designer Premier, to find a designer for our major first floor and kitchen remodel. She provided excellent and prompt service. She helped us narrow down the field of designers to a few design firms and scheduled appointments with both firms and helped articulate out needs. We have had a great experience working with our designer and our project is going according to plan. I highly recommend Designer Premier for anyone looking to hire a designer.

Marina is thoughtful and insightful and very careful with each client and the match that she recommends. The service is completely genius — there are so many choices in Denver and DP does the work with sensitivity in making good long-term matches for the client and the designer. The DP team is comprised of skilled design professionals and sources/showrooms.

My wife and I for years had considered a re-model of our existing home, yet our novice understanding of how to even commence the design process would always overwhem us, let alone what to actually do to change our physical surroundings.

Thankfully, we found Marina Dagenais. She confidently and calmly met with us in person, at our house, free of charge. There was no up-sell. Just helpfulness. She put us in touch with two designers whom she felt would be a good fit, arranged for us to meet with each individually, and followed up with us unobtrusively. She re-assured us that our interior design predicament had solutions and helped set our expectations with convincing accuracy as to what to expect next in the process.

We are currently on track to commence our re-model, a place we surely would not have been without Marina’s guiding hand. Without hestation I can recommend the use of Designer Premier as a matchmaker pairing regular folks like us with design talent. And with no charge to us the homeowners!

Comment from Designer Premier Hi Nathan, thank you so much for your insightful review. It has been a real pleasure assisting you. I will stay in touch to assure that your experience continues to be stellar!

Marina spent time with me on the phone and met with me at my home so she could better understand my needs before showing me design portfolios and helping me choose a designer. She expedited the selection process and helped me find an amazing designer who is making my design experience a joyful one.

Marina is fantastic! We are doing a large renovation on our house; I had hopes of being able to handle the work myself but then reality set in….I was under a strict timeline and needed help desperately. Marina is the perfect matchmaker. She took time to get to know me, my needs and my tastes. She presented numerous designers – I chose 2 to interview. Honestly they were both fantastic – and I am now working with one that I love! She expedited the process of finding the perfect designer for me. I can’t thank her enough! Highly recommend!!
