“Best of Houzz 2013” Awards: Thank You Clients!

badge_7_2We are honored to announce that for the second straight year, Haddad Hakansson has been selected for a “Best of Houzz” award.

The “Best of Houzz 2013” awards were granted in two categories: “Design” and “Customer Satisfaction.” This year’s award was given in the “Customer Satisfaction” category and was based on a variety of factors, including ratings and reviews by Houzz’s 11 million monthly users.

Here is a sample of what our clients had to say about us on Houzz in 2012:

My experience working with a handful of other designers on kitchen and bath renovations helped me realize just how outstanding Haddad Hakansson designers are. They earned 5 stars with professionalism, exciting and fresh ideas, color expertise, and attention to schedule and budget constraints. I won’t work with anyone else.”

  • Houzz user Joanna K., Client

“I found them to really listen to my “wish list” and was very impressed in how they creatively included them all into a very small space.  They were a delight to work with and made a very stressful project an enjoyable one with their attention to detail and quick response to all my changes. 

I would highly recommend Mark & Kurt to anyone with design needs.”

Interior PhotosHaddad Hakansson’s 2012 award was given in the “Design” category, and was based on the number of images added to Houzz users’ “ideabooks.” Fewer than 1 percent of the 32,597 interior design professionals profiled on Houzz have won “Best of Houzz” awards in both 2012 and 2013.
