"Liz worked with me to decorate my home. We discussed my objectives and style preferences and developed a color palette to meet my goals. My home looks great and I have received many complements! I would highly recommend Liz to anyone who wants to update the look and improve the value of their home."
Thomas Duffey, THD Business Advisors LLC.
"Liz did a great job providing ideas for decorating and furniture placement in my new townhouse. While I am not finished with all the implementation yet, her ideas are really looking great thus far!"
Phillip Bremser, Owner - US Coin Appraisals
"I am happy to write a recommendation for Liz Arce, VISUALLY YOURS by Liz.
I have used her services on several occasions. The first was to prepare a home for sale. Aside from being cluttered, the house was furnished with early- married furniture. Liz quickly identified furniture and accessories to be stored and reconfigured the space to show off the rooms to their maximum. The sellers were thrilled at the results! Many realtors who toured the listing, have remarked that the house was staged and showed well.
Impressed, I had Liz come to my home to give me some decorating suggestions. She was able to give me a fresh perspective on colors, accessories and placement with merely an evaluation and walk through. Many of her suggestions, I put in place immediately. As the months go by, I find that I am slowly making purchases and changes as a result of her suggestions.
Liz has a great eye for decorating and a good understanding of what sells, in real estate. I would highly encourage anyone needing staging or decorating to give her a call."
Linda Hinkle, Realtor - Platinum Partners Realty
Downers Grove, IL.
"Liz is an absolute joy to work with! I trust her and know I will get results every time I need decorating assistance. I first hired Liz in 2006, after we moved into our new home. Since then, I've turned to her several times to help me make all the rooms in my home visually appealing and warm.
I am not a decorator by any means but Liz has been terrific with incorporating my style and staying within my budget. I would highly recommend Visually Yours by Liz if you are looking for a same-day decorating makeover or decorating in general!"
Dolly McCarthy, News Anchor, Host of
"The Dolly McCarthy Show"
"I hired Liz to redesign my family room, dining room and foyer area. She took the time to understand my tastes and incorporate them into the space. Plus, she provided paint recommendations that helped transform the rooms with a few simple accent walls. I now have a Tuscan feel throughout the space that brings back wonderful grad-school memories. Liz shopped for new home decor that tied everything together. I've received numerous compliments and thoroughly enjoy my new rooms. Liz exceeded my expectations and I would recommend you working with her if you are seeking a home makeover."
Jennifer Valentino Cox, Account Director - The Red Group
"I have used several Home Stagers in my career as a Realtor. Liz is by far the best I have employed. Liz takes time to really listen and always emphasizes that her ideas for staging are suggestions and that the client can implement any or all of them. Also, Liz does "hands-on" staging. She does it right away rather than giving people "homework," which often does not get completed. Most importantly, she treats each client with the utmost professionalism and makes them feel comfortable." Give her a try, you will be glad you did!
Wayne Lorenz, Broker - Baird and Warner Realty, Naperville, IL.
"I highly recommend Visually Yours by Liz for anyone who is looking to give any room in their home a face-lift. I witnessed Liz do an afternoon makeover in someone's living room. She completely transformed the room, making it more functional, spacious and artistic. This particular client didn't have a huge budget, but that didn't hinder Liz's imaginative process. She was able to use many of the clients own items and add a few to create a truly unique and beautiful room."
Elizabeth Chaidez, Chef/Owner - Sprigs Catering, Inc.
"Liz is amazing! She truly has been blessed with an "eye for design." In 2005, my husband and I moved into our new home. We were so excited to make it our own. For years, I have been fighting with my house, trying to perfect each room. I hate to admit that we had spent lots of money and time, and were not satisfied. Then Liz came into my life, heaven-sent I'd like to think. Liz shared ideas for colors and room set up that led us to hire her to reconfigure the whole first floor. I am so happy with my house now! Everything works harmoniously! Everyone deserves to have their homes nicely decorated and befitting of their personality. It's okay to reach out for help. Liz is the perfect person to call; you can afford her. She is extremely reasonable!"
Monica Marks Martin, Creator of "Yum Bitz" Cookies, Michigan
"Liz Arce, owner of Visually Yours by Liz, is great at what she does! It all started back in April when I first had Liz re-do my living room. I loved it so much that I asked Liz to come back and re-do my family room. I loved that so much that my daughter asked if she could come back and look at her room. My daughter's room got a makeover as well. Let's just say that I've continued to go from one room to the next and am completely satisfied with her work and suggestions. She will do as much or as little as you are looking to do. Job well-done, and I love my house more than ever. Thanks Liz!"
Sally Briar, Independent Consultant, Votre Vu French Skin Care
"Liz, thank you for the beautiful makeover to my rooms using all the furnishings and decor I already had. You created rooms I would see in a magazine! I appreciate the referral from my Realtor, Tom Gaikowski. Thanks for making my new home a warm and wonderful place to live!"
Barbara Jirka, Director, McCain Foods, Lisle, IL.
"Liz Arce's keen eye for creating appealing interiors has directly contributed to my success as a residential real estate broker. In every instance that sellers agreed to Liz's recommendations, the homes sold faster and for a higher percentage of the listing price. Liz prepares a home to be viewed in its best light by eliminating unsightly clutter from the home and replacing it with an inviting touch. She consults with sellers on redecorating and selects fresh new colors that bring life to their tired walls. My clients rave about working with Liz and often recommend her to their circle of friends; Liz is truly a joy with whom to collaborate. I learn from every listing we share and marvel at her ability to see charm in rooms where I see little potential, simply said, Liz transforms homes into showcases!"
Tom Gaikowski, Broker - John Greene Realtor, Naperville, IL.
"Liz, I can't begin to thank you for the finished result of our beautiful new front room! I hope you had as much fun as I did! I love it! You have an amazing creative gift that I love to brag about when people visit! God bless you and your business!"
Chris Charlton, AT&T Bell Labs, Naperville, IL.
"Liz is great! She is very talented and can work with what my clients own, she turns their home into a showplace! If they need accessories, she provides the service of shopping for them."
Lori Gaul, Broker - John Greene Realtor, Naperville, IL.
"I hired Liz to make my Mom's condo more appealing. She arranges furniture like a musical conductor and has a unique ability to see great possibilities using what you have available. However, she can also recommend what you need to achieve the perfect look. Liz transformed and ordinary looking space into an exquisite, fresh, clean and welcoming environment ready for viewing by potential buyers. She treated my Mom's condo like it was her own and brought a personal touch that is rare in today's marketplace."
Doris Salgado, Darien, IL.
"Liz listened to my needs and delivered beyond my expectations. I was amazed by how she instantly picked up on my taste and selected items that I adore. I have worked with many interior designers and Liz is by far the best in the area."
Heather Verthein, Naperville, IL.
"Liz Arce, of Visually Yours by Liz, has a great eye for color and design in her work. She has done both of my offices, my family room and my master bedroom. She will work with you and your budget to create a space that is comfortable and makes you feel good when you walk into the room. I recommend Liz and her company and will use Visually Yours by Liz again for my next decorating project. Thanks Liz!"

With your service, and your special feel for what a home needs, you have made a difference. You have also been recognized by our clients. In this difficult market they have recognized that your work has enabled them to sell their homes while others sit."

Veronica Porter, Owner - Ask Aunt V, Naperville, IL.
"Liz Arce, of Visually Yours by Liz, helped me to update my kitchen and family room. Although my initial consultation was for window treatments, Liz's vision guided me to consider paint and other simple, cost-effective ways to update my favorite rooms. The painting contractor she recommended provided exemplary service, as well. Liz continually communicated with me to ensure I was pleased with the process and outcome. She was a joy to work with!"
Jody Bender, Community Relations Director - Loaves and Fishes, Naperville, IL.
"Liz can solve any design dilemma with her attention to detail, and a warm, positive work ethic. I wish I had found Liz six years ago when mistakes were made moving into a new home. Liz has made my home sparkle with beautiful paint colors, furniture placement, window treatments and accessories. She knows how to use many of one's own items plus will shop for other items to complement a home. Liz has great skill, she has been able to transform my home into a far more visually attractive, inviting space. Thanks, Liz, for the ultimate joy!"
Judy Kerl, Retired School Teacher, North Aurora, IL.
"Elizabeth provided a wonderful service; redesigning two rooms without spending lots of money on furniture. She reused items around my home to create two complete rooms we enjoy, and she utilized the space well. I highly recommend her services if you want to feel you have complete rooms in your home without the high ticket cost. Thank you! After two years, we are still enjoying our rooms! Will be hiring her for services again!"
Ivonne Gines, Bi-lingual Clinician Consultant at DuPage County Health Department
"Elizabeth is a joy to work with and a true professional at her craft! Her attention to detail and vision helps make her the success that she is when it comes to assisting home sellers or property owners in making their homes the most appealing they can be. I would recommend Elizabeth (Liz) 100%!"
Ben Kastein, Broker-Owner, Advantage Realty Group
"As a finance professional, I have succeeded at some of my personal home designs, and there have been a few, I have definitely regretted. Selecting the color scheme for the exterior of my home, seemed tough, with risk of a do-it-yourself or out of fear of screwing it up! Then, I hired Visually Yours by Liz. Liz came up with ideas, I never even considered. She made a boring project, turn out to be exciting! What a gorgeous facelift my home received, just through her creative paint recommendations! I was so pleased, I hired Liz again, (think, 1970's - basement with paneling), and prepping my house for sale. Liz's work garnered a significant amount of traffic to our home, as it showed very well, making a quick sale, in what was the bottom of the local real estate market."
