Jenny (Korecky) Madden, owner and chief designer of Jenny Madden Design, has won the Best of Houzz 2017 award, a nationwide recognition by Houzz Inc., an online platform for home renovation and design with more than 40 million monthly users.
 
According to Houzz, Jenny Madden Design was selected as the most popular designer in the Customer Service award category, receiving top recognition based on several factors, including the number and quality of recent client reviews. Liza Hausman, vice president of Industry Marketing for Houzz , remarked, “We are so pleased to award Best of Houzz 2017 to this incredible group of talented and customer-focused professionals.”
 
 
New Jersey client Ellen Hedden shared her review: “We have loved working with Jenny on three projects of very different styles and each with specific challenges (modern apartment, beach house, classic brownstone),” stated. “Her designs are always beautiful and functional. She really listens to her clients to understand their needs. Her process is very collaborative, and she provides just the right number of choices for each room or part of the project. She is so knowledgeable about furniture, fixtures, artwork, and carpentry that she is able to help with every step of the process. She often identifies our style and needs before we do! We trust Jenny completely with the design and decor of our home.”    
 
Jack, a New York City resident, agreed:  “Jenny did an amazing job helping us with the design and renovation of our apartment in NYC. It was a challenging floor plan, but Jenny did a fantastic job designing plans that made the space work best for us. Jenny did a great job walking us through our options at each step and making sure we understood the pros/cons of each design choice and ultimately finding the best outcome to fit with our preferences, lifestyle, and budget. Jenny was professional, attentive, and a pleasure to work with.”      

 
“I am honored to be selected for this award,” stated Jenny Madden whose firm serves the New York /New Jersey area. “Winning this award is certainly gratifying, but even more fulfilling is taking care of every detail for my clients and knowing that when I am done, they can enjoy the space we have created together.  It is truly a client/designer partnership,” added Madden.
 
A 2001 graduate of Westfield High School, Madden earned a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Columbia University as well as a Master of Science in Interior Architecture and Design at Drexel University. She has worked on many sides of the industry including construction management. Jenny is also a LEED Accredited Professional, well-versed in the latest green design strategies.
 
Citing the benefit of working with a designer experienced in architecture and construction, the Klarreich family commented, “Jenny was great! We enjoyed working with her throughout the entire process. She exceeded our expectations every step of the way. She worked well with both the architect and the builder on a 1 year renovation. Her ability to provide design ideas and then source the products needed was amazing.”
 
A “Best Of Houzz 2017” badge appears on the Jenny Madden Design profile (http://www.houzz.com/pro/jmaddendesign) as a sign of her commitment to excellence. This badge helps homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals.
