Before & After - Nicole and Andy Martyniuk

Before & After Nicole & Andy Martyniuk.png

Almost one year ago to date, our fearless leader, Nicole, chose to take a leap and move her family out of the city and back to the ‘burbs! As most of you know, whether through your own personal experience or through articles such as our own, the real estate market has been tough for homebuyers. And Nicole’s experience was, unfortunately, no exception… After looking at many houses, losing out in multiple bid wars, and starting to feel pretty hopeless, Nicole and her husband, Andy, finally stumbled across a home in West Irondequoit that piqued their interest.

Now, to the naked eye, the house needed some love. But if you know Nicole, then you know that she’s up for any task thrown her way! After purchasing the property, she and Andy spent the next 2-3 months ripping up carpets, installing brand new ash hardwoods, tearing down and putting up walls, painting the entire interior, updating cabinetry, and renovating the kitchen. All while simultaneously taking care of dreadfully unexpected plumbing and electrical work…

Did I also mention that Nicole and Andy did a lot of this work themselves? The before and after photos speak for themselves. They still have a list of updates that they’d like to continue working through over time (bathrooms, landscaping, etc.), but don’t we all? The most important part is that Nicole, Andy, and their daughter, Esme, finally feel like they’ve made this house a home!
