Client Testimonials

“The construction on our 8,500 square foot home was completed in 2013, and we were not quite halfway through the decorating process when we were introduced to Mark Polo. The project had become overwhelming, but Mark quickly got things under control and began making suggestions and changes that put us on the right track. Mark and his staff have been working with us for approximately nine months, and we are delighted with the results in our home. Mark’s decorating and design expertise have afforded us the opportunity to transform our home into precisely what we intended the space to be — warm and inviting in a very sophisticated yet rustic setting. His professionalism and pleasant can-do attitude are consistent and sincere. He and his staff are a pleasure to work with, and their response time and follow-up have been admirable.” – Dolores F., Sparta, NJ

“I have been working with Polo, M.A. for the past 4 years now, We hired Marc for a multi-room renovation which continued with bits and pieces throughout the entire house. As I have told Marc, it is an ongoing relationship. He is extremely easy to work with, in that, he not only offers suggestions and recommendations, but listens to your wants and needs. He is definitely not an “obnoxious” decorator. His major priority is pleasing the client, and making sure they love the finished product.” – Kathy W., Woodcliff Lake, NJ

“Mark Polo and his firm were retained when we began the plans for our new home. He worked with us from the time we broke ground through our move in. Mark was constantly on site, working with us, our builder and all of the trades involved. The greatest attention to every detail was the hallmark of the process. His professionalism and ability to work with everyone, at every level, made what many find an arduous process an absolute joy. He is a true master of the art of design. We could not have been happier with the outcome and are pleased to recommend him.” – Ed M., Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ

“Linda and I went down this weekend and saw the den. You and the cabinet makers did a fantastic job. Their craftsmanship is beautiful. The cabinets, the arc-way, the bookcases, the hardware all look beautiful and impressive work. It is a magnificent (cannot think of enough words to describe their work) job they did.” – Dr. Ralph S., Annapolos, MD

“I spoke with Artie and he couldn’t say enough of the installation of the library. He loved it!! Good work as always.” – Linda S., Annapolis, MD

“I needed to dramatically update my 25-year old master bathroom, and Mark Polo’s ideas and design did just that. From the free standing tub with artwork and lighting as the focal point when you enter the bathroom to my new walk-in shower with multiple showerheads and a wonderful built-in seat, I feel like I live in a 5* hotel or spa. My new custom storage cabinet/linen closet was cleverly designed and provides more storage than I could possibly ever need. It’s easy to replace fixtures, but to get the wow-factor I wanted, I needed someone who could offer great ideas and a special design for the space. Mark definitely did that for me, and I couldn’t be happier.” – Anne E., Edgewater, NJ

“Ecstatic! Speaking as one who has definite preferences in home design, without the ability to execute them on my own, I am thrilled with the projects I have completed with Polo M.A. Inc. I am so pleased with the visual spaces that Mark created in my now welcoming and cozy family room, redesigned kitchen and new master bath – his use of color and space is impeccable. The craftsmen that Mark brought into my home to do the work were highly skilled and professional. His availability during and after the projects was wonderful. I felt fortunate to have Mark and his lovely staff in my home.” – Ellen R., Mountain Lakes, NJ

“What can I say about Polo M.A. Inc., LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!!! I discovered Mark at a Bergen County house tour in 2009. He was the pot of gold as the end of the rainbow. We were planning a renovation of our 20+ year old home, and besides working with the architect, builder, contractors, etc., we needed guidance with interior design as well. And then there was Mark! At our first meeting, I knew it was a match made in heaven. His concerns were how we wanted our home to feel, how we wanted to utilize each room and how we wanted to furnish the rooms. Besides having his own ideas, he listens to yours, and really does, and then builds on both. Our working together has been a well-balanced exchange of opinions, ideas and respect. Mark and his team have been easy and pleasurable to work with. They act promptly on requests, keep you apprised of the status of orders, execute timely deliveries and most of all are always eager to please. I am extremely happy with everything Polo M.A. has done, hence my brown sofa that turned into purple, which was quickly remedied. My accidental discovery, Mark, has now become a happy and long term relationship! Thank you!” – Kathy & Shalom W., Woodcliff Lake, NJ

“Mark is an absolute pleasure to work with and is a Master of Design! Competent staff who are helpful when information is needed. If you are looking for inspiration and direction for your interior design project, Mark can help!” – Karen W., Cape May, NJ
