I met Christina through working for a builder in new home sales. She staged our model home in East Mesa, and as the on-site salesperson I received compliments about how nice our model appeared to prospects and customers all the time. I'm sure I made a few sales out of it! When it was time for some home improvement of my own, I decided to hire CGHI to renovate my bathrooms, which very obviously hadn't been touched since the house was originally built in 1971. Christina quickly went to work providing me with guidance and showing me options for how the bathrooms would look and feel. Every time I asked for a change, addition, or showed her something I saw on the internet that caught my attention, Christina would get back to me quickly and integrate the adjustment into the plan. Most importantly, she was very wary of keeping track of expenses and staying within budget. Now my bathrooms are complete and I'm receiving compliments all over again from family and friends for making such smart design decisions. I will not hesitate to call her to help with my next project!

Besides excellent taste and a respect for budgets, Christina has great patience, a good sense of humor and the ability to know when a client needs more guidance or less. I was referred to her by my Realtor after buying a home in the Phoenix metro: since renovations and design work were going to be supervised remotely, we didn't have a lot of time together. However, we were able to get the basics done quite quickly and I enjoyed her company and expertise very much during those initial days. That early trust really helped over the following months of working mostly via email. Due to renovation delays, the overall project took far longer than expected, but Christina was unfailingly helpful in making sure that decisions were made and materials ordered in a timely manner, then working with the contractor to make sure installation was accomplished properly. Now that we have moved to the area and into the home, I am very happy with both the decisions made and the materials chosen. I am looking forward to working with Christina again as we tackle other projects in the home and would eagerly recommend her to other potential clients.

Christina was professional, timely, and did a great job meeting us with our specific design needs. She has a very well trained eye and brought the area in our house together using new and existing pieces we already had. The house looks so much better; I would definitely hire Christina again!

I reached out to Christina to see if she would be willing to do a coaching call with me about starting a business in home staging and interior design. I was surprised at how quickly she responded with a warm and welcoming yes and set up a time for us to video chat. I had numerous questions and she never hesitated to share tips and advice and her own experiences. Our conversation was extremely helpful and motivated me to take the next steps to get started. It’s refreshing to find someone so willing to help another get started in the same field. She even sent me follow up emails to see how I’m doing which truly makes me feel appreciated. Seriously thank you!

It is hard to put into words the distance that Christina has gone to make our home perfect. In the beginning, our small remodel was only to include replacing the floors and upgrading our kitchen. We quickly spiraled into a whole home remodel which took 80% of our house down to the studs. Christina was there every step of the way helping pick out every finishing touch (and supplying photos and comparisons when we had no clue what we wanted), offering expertise, an ear when I needed to vent and even stepping up to deal with contractors when she thought we were not being treated fairly. This project might have been one of the most mentally draining things we have gone through and Christina handled it with ease, genuine care and professionalism. I have already referred her to a few people and will continue to refer Christina to anyone looking for beautiful, detail-oriented and budget-friendly projects. We could not be more thankful for her!

Christina is truly a professional who knows design. She took pieces we had from previous models and adapted them to a new model we just built. Additionally, she added a few new items, but was very mindful of our budget. She is a pleasure to work with as she is very responsive and communicates very clearly. The end product is something we are very pleased with! We are proud to be the first production builder Christina has worked with and look forward to many more projects together.

Christina has adopted a swift and reasonable business model for staging properties. I will look forward to the positive affects it will have on the selling of my listed property. Having seen her efforts, I anticipate good results.

I run a residential real estate company here in Phoenix. Christina has become an invaluable resource to our company. She currently meets with all of our clients looking to sell their home. She assists them in getting their home ready to hit the market. In doing so making our job as Realtors so much easier. She is amazing when it comes to showing homeowners what to do to get their home ready for market. She is very knowledgeable of what current trends are, how to maximize space using your existing furniture, and what potential buyers are looking for in a home. She can even take it one step further and assist new homeowners or existing ones decorate their home. She really listens to clients and what they want, not allowing her tastes to influence the design. I can't recommend Christina enough for your interior design or home staging needs.

We have used Christina Goldsmith's staging skills as part of our listing presentation. Her skills remove those touchy moments of telling the seller their home needs to show its best during the listing period. It has worked every time. Christina's expertise is always accepted as valid which removes the stress from the relationship between the sellers and ourselves.

Christina is an amazing designer who just gets it. I needed to overhaul my bedroom furniture and accessories after more than a decade of use. I wanted my new space to feel comfortable, cozy, uncluttered and suited to my books and travel photos. Christina took my limited direction, budget and vision, and created a gorgeous space that I can relax in every night. I would recommend Christina to anyone!

Christina did a wonderful job on staging one of my listings. She was very professional, considerate and communicated well. Her staging brought a whole new look to the home which helped the property sell. I will recommend her service to all my clients that need staging assistance. Great work Christina!

Christina is a versatile, professional, and talented designer! I ordered a Mood Board for help selecting countertops, backsplash, flooring, and paint. Christina prepared a few different options by using the pictures alone of the space. I was impressed that Christina linked to exact selections of countertops, backsplash, flooring, and paint...plus went above and beyond and recommended lighting options. Christina is very detailed, responsive, and truly cares about her clients and work. Thank you Christina!
