Buying a vacation home in Palm Beach is more challenging than ever. Limited selection in prime locations has forced buyers to be flexible about the properties they consider. The ability to transform an available property into a dream home has become an integral part of the luxury home-buying process. With over 20 years of experience, Annie Santulli successfully navigates this process and delivers transformational, luxury designs throughout the area.
Undesirable properties in great locations are now being given new life rather than being overlooked. "I love when I can show clients a new way to use a space that works for their lifestyle." Santulli explains, "Don't need a coat closet, make it into a wine cellar. Unused butler's pantry, convert it to a living room wet bar." One of her clients explains, “Her meticulous overview of every detail turned this dated 'worn' house into our contemporary dream home."
Luxury home buyers are flocking to Palm Beach from all over the country, all fighting for the same fabulous locations: a coveted ocean view, a private dock on the Intracoastal, or an exclusive golf course community. Prospective buyers often need expert help to envision the full potential of a space, before they’re ready to commit. That’s where the creativity of an interior designer can be immensely helpful to both buyers and their realtors. “The Realtors I work with know they can call me for an initial design consult during the sales process,” Santulli says.
Annie Santulli has a vivacious personality and a profound passion for her craft. Her reputation as the go-to designer for luxury design in Southeast Florida keeps growing as she provides the personal service and 24/7 work ethic her clients deserve. She explains, “In this business, you need to not only be a creative designer but a capable project manager as well. I have a network of the best loyal, reliable contractors, artisans and suppliers, but have to coordinate installations based on delivery of custom artisan pieces and limited-edition materials.” A client was impressed to see that, “The subcontractors Annie uses are excellent, they all love and admire her and with her coordination of the job, everything is done on time and to perfection.”
Working with a local designer like Annie Santulli is a wise investment for those who take pride in their luxury homes. “My clients have high expectations. They hire me because they trust my opinion, integrity, and high standards.” Santulli continues. “This process is invasive, but my clients are comforted knowing it will be a smooth collaborative experience.” Her clients have boasted, “We worked with her from 1200 miles away and Annie took care of everything.” And, “Annie oversaw the renovation of our golf club home while we were home in the Northeast. Things couldn’t have gone more smoothly, everything was perfectly executed.”
Trusting a local team with insight, flexibility, and local connections who will handle everything is the key to a successful transformation. Santulli emphasizes, "When you live in another part of the country your designer becomes your on-scene advocate."
