Testimonials

“Sygrove Associates just completed our hallway renovation and the result is nothing short of stunning. Marilyn Sygrove led the charge in transforming the halls of our 100+ year old building on the Upper West Side without losing any of the charm or elegance of our landmark structure. The response from the residents has been extremely positive. Our neighbors are overwhelmingly “happy to come home.” Prospective shareholders have also noticed. The Board has seen several purchase packages that mention the beautiful, warm and welcoming design scheme. We couldn’t be happier with the results!”
Board Member, The Endicott Apartments Corporation, New York, NY


“The building looks beautiful. It’s all very stylish and sophisticated and is a huge upgrade to our NYC home. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate it. Friends who have visited have been equally impressed. One couple is now even hoping to purchase an apartment here. Great job…many thanks!”
Shareholder, Cannon Point South, New York, NY


“A broker showing an apartment was raving about how well the building’s redecoration project went and how much value it added the apartments. When I first heard of the Board’s ambitious plan to redecorate the entire building; hallways, lobby, elevators and facade, I knew of no one who could design all four elements. How you managed to navigate through all of the different factions, from contractors, suppliers, staff, management and a seven member Board was truly remarkable. It was immediately apparent that your diplomacy and patience were as good as your design skills.”
Property Manager, Lex Owners Corp., New York, NY


“Hats off to you and your staff. People who have come to visit me can’t say enough about the work – modern slant on an older building (which makes the Upper West Side what it is) – maintaining the period.”
Board Member, The 203 Condominium, New York, NY


“After a rigorous interview process, we selected Marilyn Sygrove and her team to design and manage the installation of our hallways. What set Marilyn apart was her ability to respect others’ opinions, while professionally guiding us through the process. Marilyn’s innate ability to select the perfect colors resulted in a luxurious and tasteful finished project that exceeded the Board’s lofty expectations.”
Board Vice President, 411 East 53rd Street Condominium, New York, NY


“The richness of the design has made all our residents, as well as staff, feel proud of our building. Thanks to your firm sense of direction and knowledge of the best materials and approaches to choose, our committee of twelve was able to make the correct decisions.”
Board President, 15 West 72nd Street Owners Corp., New York, NY


“…our building has been turned into something one couldn’t have imagined possible. Our apartments’ values have already gone up tremendously since the completion of the hallways, et al.”
Board President, 520 East 76th St. Apartment Corp., New York, NY


“The several projects that you have done for us in design of public spaces, model apartments and other consultancies have always exhibited exquisite taste combined with practicality.”
Chairman, Rose Associates, Inc., New York, NY


“Over the years we have come to trust and value [your] taste and judgment. There isn’t a design related project we would attempt without consulting Sygrove first.”
Project Liason, The Bank of New York, New York, NY


“You developed a design scheme that…successfully accomplished the challenge of making enormously long halls appear to be more in scale. I feel that apartment values in this building, directly related to this above-standard decoration, have increased by at least 20%, if not more.”
Executive Vice President, Mayfair Towers, New York, NY


“I am extremely pleased with the way this project has turned out from a design standpoint. Overall, we have an elegant look that will wear well over time. It was also a pleasure for me to work with the truly professional staff that you lead. “
