Quaker Valley Condominium – West Warwick – Remodel/Flip


Rich Paolo’s dated 1300 sq. ft. condo, built in the 1980s, needed to be brought into the current decade, with a total makeover.  In October 2020, Michelle came in with her team of professional contractors, to tackle this extensive renovation.

They started in the Kitchen with new granite countertops, tile backsplash, updated lighting and painted cabinets, along with vinyl plank flooring. 

Then it was on to the Living Room, for a fresh coat of paint. Old carpet was removed and replaced with the same vinyl plank flooring as in the kitchen.

The Master Bath received a complete renovation with brand new plumbing fixtures, floor and wall tile, vanity, countertop and a beautiful tiled walk-in shower.  The 2nd Bath was partially renovated with new floor tile, vanity, and countertop.

New lighting was carefully chosen for each room throughout the condo.

The two bedrooms were freshly painted, and updated with new carpet.

Lastly, new carpet was installed in the two heated lanais.

By November 2020, just one month later, the project was complete. This once outdated living space had been completely transformed, and it was ready to list.  

Within a week and half this condo sold for well over the asking price – thanks to the expert design work of Michelle and her team.
