I wanted an interior designer who had experience in designing a shophouse apartment and who has good design ideas. Out of all the options I had, Cadine gave me the best impression. Even though she had not worked on shophouses before, she knew what she was doing and I could tell that she was more experienced than the other designers as she was able to make off the cuff suggestions when I directed my questions towards her. I told all the interior designers that I met that I wanted a mezzanine for the bedroom and Cadine was the only one who gave me the confidence that she was capable of building the loft without incurring a lot of additional costs. As compared to the other interior designers who told me that they had to seek for approval which would cost an additional $10,000 to $15,000, Cadine’s idea involved building a sort of ‘large table’ upon which my room would be built. I felt that she knew the renovation rules and regulations well and this allowed her to play around with the rules when coming up with the loft for my home. As I was busy with work, I could not manage the entire project on my own and in that sense, Cadine really helped me a lot by taking on responsibility for the entire renovation and making frequent trips down to my house to check up on the progress of the renovation. Whenever there were any issues, I could text her and she would assist me in rectifying the problem. As compared to my previous renovation experiences, working with Cadine was a more relaxed experience. I know that I’m not always the easiest person to deal with but Cadine just rolled with it. She was very accommodating and was willing to make adjustments to her designs based on my feedback. One thing that can be improved would be her communications. We were looking forward to moving in but she did not update us on the delay, and at times we were left wondering why certain works were not yet done. Other than that, we’re all good. Even two months after the renovation, she will still support us in the rectifications.

Being first time home-owners, we met quite a few IDs and in the end, we felt the most comfortable with Jervin. Throughout the design process, she was always very patient in listening to our ideas and questions and gave us practical advice on design options, colours, and the overall feel of the home. She even brought us out shopping for lights and furniture and gave us various options to fit our budget. We never felt pressured or stressed in making any choices. She was pro-active in updating us on the progress and clearly explained the processes (from the work schedule, to liaising with the MA, to the breakdown of each renovation item) every step of the way. We were very satisfied with the finished works, and Jervin was very quick to assist with all our requests, big or small. Even after the renovation was completed, she was still super responsive if we had any queries. Huge thanks to Jervin for making our first home renovation a seamless and pleasant experience! Would definitely recommend Prozfile and Jervin 10/10

My husband and I are return customers of Prozfile Design because of Elsie. She is attentive and both creative and practical as a designer. Covid made renovation incredibly challenging this year but she provided the reassurance we needed throughout the entire period to completion. The house carpentry and finishings are also of great quality. Definitely would recommend to any friend looking to renovate their house!

I found Cadine through recommendations by two of my friends. I went to both of their houses to see their renovated house (2 and 3 years after the renovation). The reason why I am writing this, nearly a year after the completion of the renovation, is because I wanted to see the quality of the workmanship in my house. I am very happy to say that a year on, the only thing that is showing any wear and tear is the painting on the walls with some paint peeling off. However, Cadine already warned us that the walls are uneven and the previous painters (we got a resale flat!) did not do a good job. Other than that, all the furnishings are still in great shape and look as good as new. The drawer mechanisms and cupboard joints all are working great with zero maintenance from us. Cadine was able to meld both my husband's and my ideas into a design that worked. He liked the homely wood look and I liked the luxury look. Cadine took both of our preferences and the results are spectacular. We love the design of our house! During our search for the perfect ID (we visited 6 in total before engaging Prozfile), we found many "IDs" who felt more like project managers. Whereas for Cadine, many of her ideas felt like actual interior design thinking, and that is reflected in the work. Cadine set a very clear project schedule and we managed to stick to it. The renovation took 9 weeks which was the duration that she told us from the beginning (she said 8-10 weeks). I have to admit that I am also very fussy and Cadine was happy to answer all my questions or even correct small issues. She was also amazing and replaced our vinyl flooring in the service yard which ended up having water seeping under because there was a major leak from the outside of the house (the town council had to rectify it). The contractors under her are very good (plumber, electrician, and carpenter) and were all friendly. Additionally, we passed all our receipts of items we bought and Cadine coordinated for the deliveries. It was really quite fuss-free for us. If I had to highlight anything that they could improve on is firstly, I would have to say is that they are not cheap but I believe in paying for quality work and that was delivered. During the renovation, we added more things that did push our renovation price further up than the original quotation. Also, during the renovation period, do make sure you keep a note of every change you want because Cadine did miss out on a few things we discussed but she was quick to rectify her mistakes when we pointed it out. If I ever have another house to renovate in the future, I will not hesitate to work with Cadine from Prozfile again.
