I found Cori Grenier’s name on a Facebook page in the Spring of 2020, when, after my 33-year marriage ended, and I bought my first home, I decided I needed some decorating help. I had hired interior designers previously, so I thought I knew the drill: I’d invite her into my home, talk about my tastes, and if we were a good fit, we’d choose furniture, paint colors and window treatments. I didn’t realize this at the time, but I was to meet a woman whose dedication to her field, creative capability and keen attention to detail would outweigh my highest expectations.Before I began working with Cori, my house was hodgepodge of decorating disasters: mismatched counter tops and appliances, outdated cabinets and furniture, dated accessories; unfortunately, I hadn’t a shred of creative talent for decorating: I was lost. Lucky for me, Cori is an expert in understanding her client’s preferences even when the client is unsure herself. She very patiently encouraged me to realize and verbalize my sense of style. We began working on just one room in the house, and when Cori’s keen attention to detail, her work ethic and her natural creativity became evident, I secured her services to transform my entire home. The results evidenced her exceptional design sensibility. Yes, this transformation took a fair amount of time, but Cori was thorough and efficient: our many hours of collaboration in person, on the phone, and through technology highlighted her professionalism and respect for my time. Her approachable demeanor and ability to listen attentively made me feel comfortable and valued.As a retired educator, a current nature lover and practicing yogi, I must thank Cori for transforming the house I bought four years ago into a home that reflects my personality and sensibilities. From the sensual, feminine master bedroom and bath, to the moody, yet playful piano room, to the bohemian-styled guest room, my entire home, now, is a beautifully designed, cozy, welcoming space that I’m proud to call my own. And I couldn’t have done it without Cori’s guidance. Equally impressive to me is Cori’s ability to balance home and work life: her busy household consists of her and her husband, three school-aged daughters, Cori’s parents, and a flock of chickens. (Incidentally, Cori designed and decorated “One of the Most Beautiful Chicken Coops We’ve Ever Seen” according I’ve come to know Cori personally and have witnessed her accommodate important family commitments and ensure she has designated time for her work schedule. Cori has also incorporated creative and unique design elements, not just professionally for her clients, but in her home for her family as well.With qualities such as these, as well as a strong dedication to client satisfaction and an ability to help her clients make informed decisions, I am confident that Cori will bring the same level of excellence to her new real estate career. This skill set is undoubtedly transferable to the real estate industry where understanding and fulling the desires of home buyers and sellers is crucial.If you require any additional information or have questions, please contact me. I’m confident that your experience with Cori—as mine has—will exceed your expectations.Best, Karin St. Pierre

I just wanted to share a quick note on the wonderful experience I had working with Cori. She came to our home and shared her thoughts (which were amazing) everything from wallpaper in the bedroom, shiplap on accent living room wall and backsplash in the kitchen. Then it was shopping for decorative home furnishings, pillows and rugs. Looking forward to working with you for the holidays. Thank you for going above and beyond and bringing your vision into our home.

We moved to North Carolina one year ago. We hired Cori to design our home. I was very impressed on how everything turned out. Not only did she do an amazing job but you can tell that she enjoys it. She is extremely professional and cares about her clients! I highly recommend Cori for any of your needs. Thank you Cori for all that you have done for us.
