We’ve been drawn to the Tryon/Columbus area since our first visit, and over the years we’ve made many wonderful friends. Sandy has served on the Board of the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce, where she worked to support other local businesses. To this day, we consider ourselves part of the Foothills community.

Sandy assisted our committee in selecting a new exterior color for our 42 unit condominium. She is immensely talented, well-prepared, uses the latest technology and has an abundance of resources to help make a stressful job a lot of fun. She is thorough, patient, insightful and a great communicator. We were all very impressed with Sandy and we give her our highest recommendation.

Between Roger’s expert painting and Sandy’s skill finding the perfect colors for each project, they’re unique and a perfect team.

We recently repainted the inside of our home and used Sandy to select the colors and Roger to apply the paint. What a fabulous job they did! We love it and would highly recommend working with them.

I can recommend Sandy and Roger having personally engaged Sterling Property Services, and having seen their work in other venues. Sandy’s mastery of color in the world of light, design & environment, and Rogers’ craftsmanship and attention to exquisite detail in painting are, in my opinion, unparalleled. Professional, thorough, and affordable – the perfect solution!

On a day to day basis in my retail business it is seldom that I meet anyone with such an extraordinary command of the use of color as Sandy LeRoy. I have also had the pleasure of assisting her in some of her local workshops concerning the usage of color, and always leave there amazed at her depth of knowledge.

Whether it staging of an existing home for sale, or a color and design consultation when building or remodeling, she is clearly the person to call.

Tommy Williamson

Williamson’s Paint Center

I have had the pleasure of working with both Roger and Sandy, and am on Roger’s list for exterior painting in 2020. Sandy’s in depth knowledge of color made selecting colors for an entire interior painless. She is patient, open to the homeowner’s taste, yet diplomatically offers suggestions when something will not work well in the space. I have already recommended her to others, and will use her services again without hesitation.”

Roger’s painting skills are the best I have ever seen. His attention to detail and pride in his work are evident in the results. I have restored numerous homes, and both Roger and Sandy are the most professional I have worked with. An absolute pleasure to work with, I highly recommend them.

Roger’s efforts are meticulous. He is dedicated to doing the best possible work in every endeavor. We could almost say that our home was cleaner when Roger left than when he started his work. Sandy’s color advice was perfect and greatly appreciated. Every time they said they would be at our home, you could count on their being on time and prepared. We highly recommend this company and would not hesitate to use them again in the future if needed.

I’ve known Roger and Sandy and been familiar with their work for more than 15 years. They always go out of their way to do a first rate job, whether it’s painting, pressure-washing, color consulting or any of the other services they offer.

Janet Sciacca

Tryon, NC

We were very pleased with Sandy’s advice and recommendations. She looked at our furniture arrangements, at the ‘objects d’art’ that were on the shelves and walls, and the color groupings in a certain room that worked (or didn’t). Sandy offered clear suggestions to capture a buyer’s eye and imagination with respect to each room and to maximize the “wow” impact of the the very important first impressions via pictures and internet.

We appreciated Sandy’s efforts to utilize what we had, without undue expense in this time of transition. Sandy emphasized use of plants, real and silk, to soften and enhance areas where furniture and/or trinkets might have detracted. At the end of our appointment, with Sandy’s help positioning furniture in two rooms and her discernment in a third room, we came away with arrangements that made absolute sense – a “why didn’t we think of that?” experience!

All said, we found a real value in Sandy’s experience and the excellent service provided. We would recommend Sandy and Sterling Property Services to anyone who wishes to gain a better edge in the real estate market.
