“Hi Parker,

What an amazing team you, Cap and the guys are! You put the O’Donnell’s at ease from the moment you stepped in. Such a special talent to be able to do that. It was a very long day for you and your team, but we so appreciate that we have everything filmed (and ended up having great weather!)

We all enjoyed working with you and are looking forward to seeing the finished show. It was so wonderful to meet you. Looking forward to catching up very soon.”

“What an amazing day and evening yesterday! You and your crew were wonderful all so professional and all have the gift of making the homeowner feel comfortable. and made the entire process a pleasure for us. Everyone had a great time and what a treat to have TJ making us special cocktails and teaching us about wine and Dave preparing an amazing meal and discussing how he works. So much fun! Really just an amazing experience from start to finish.

Best,”

“Parker,

I just wanted to send you a little gift to thank you for a great experience. It really took me outside of my comfort zone, yet I have zero regrets about doing it. In fact, I’m so glad I did it. It certainly takes someone special to do what you do and your ability to put people at ease is a gift. Your entire crew could not have been sweeter. Please give the fellas my best with an extra smooch for Cap. Again, thank you for a spectacular experience.

Love,”

Caitlin and Peter

 

“Parker and Cap,

The smiles on our family’s faces on Thursday were priceless and we can’t thank you all enough for making them feel so very special. All 3 days were special for Lisa and me, an experience made more real and comfortable because of who you two are…and Jimmie too (our best!!) Thank you so much for that because we were nervous and you took that fear away. Watching Evan and Parker in our kitchen filming and cooking and laughing and educating…Lisa and I pinched ourselves to make sure we were awake, so much fun. We are so blessed. Icing on the cake was of course your generous gift. Above and Beyond. Thank you. I’m pretty certain that picture will never be moved! Our experience with you you all was more than we ever expected so for the last time Thank you both. Enjoy your summer. Good luck with your next adventure. Our door is always open if you need a place. Love love love always.”

Mark and Lisa

You are such a special person I am so grateful to have been able to spend a little time with you – I am looking forward to our walk and painting day! I think what you bring to this world is incredible. You are so inspiring to me – You have created your own life where you can share your gifts with others and bring such joy and excitement to the people you meet.

Thank you for this gift. Parker, you did such an incredible job showcasing the beauty of my community and home. I felt so comfortable talking about my life and what drew me to Maine.

"Parker, We loved seeing the show yesterday and had to send you a note.  We enjoy our house, location and neighborhood, and you did such a great job capturing and presenting it.  It was enlightening to see all the work that goes in to a show to create a beautiful experience for your audience.  You and your crew were such a pleasure for us all to work with. Thanks again for such a fun experience and a show we will share with many in the future.  Please let us know if we can be a reference for you or if a potential homeowner would just want to talk about the experience before they commit. We hope you will come back some time to just "hangout", to get the extended experience of our life on the water!”

“It was a lovely episode. Thank you. It was a lot of fun. I know you said it takes a day or two…I’d love to share it, any idea when it will be on your website?”

“Just a note to say that my wife and I watched the show and we thought it came out excellent! Custom home designers like me believe that it’s not just about the house but the lifestyle and how they to choose to live. The way the show combined local attractions with a chef and the casual “talk with your friends” approach is exactly how a designer like myself wants their client to see their design work play out. The show parallels my own marketing philosophy in that the house is just a piece of the puzzle that enables my client to live and host the way they wish. Before we even met, Parker explained the process in detail and how the shoot would unfold over the days that it took. Her level of explanation was perfect as many of these custom homeowners care about details (which is why they often choose to customize their own house). Parker’s explanations of the process and the program gave me enough knowledge to answer all of the owner’s questions without my having to go back and forth with Parker. This gave my clients the reassurance they needed to be comfortable with themselves and their home being filmed. All of the services that Parker provided were top-notch. She was easy to talk to and her crew was very professional and relaxed  - making it easy for the novice. Having never been filmed before, I was a bit nervous but Parker coached me and made the whole experience quite enjoyable. Bravo!"

“I really love the show and the format. I think a lot of people will follow it. I love how you incorporate mini stories within the big story of the home- so engaging and fun to 'feel' the home with the mini-experiences you create. I can't wait to see the next episode!”

— Heather McGrath, Designer

 

“I love this!!! I am so excited for your show! I know exactly where this home is and this is such a treat to be able to see inside and get the history behind it. And that grill!!! Amazing!!! Along with those steaks! You will be so successful with this show. I'm already hooked!!"

— Robyn

 

"OMG! I have been a half hour behind all day because I had to see it right away!!! It was great and lots of people texting me that they have watched. So weird to watch yourself on TV. But you and the editors made us look great. AND Middletown never looked so good. Only downside, I am craving nettle and burrata cheese. Larry and I joked that instead of giving house tours we can play the show for new guests.” 

— Kim and Larry Ingenieri (Homeowners)

 

"You did a great job. Can’t wait to see them all."

— Architect David Andreozzi 

 

"Enjoyed the show today Parker! 👍❤ Such fun! I loved the introduction/information about the town of Bristol & the museum. Made me want to come visit here if I didn't already live here. The nautical theme throughout the show was a nice tie in between community, homeowner & house design. One friend of mine commented he never knew the house was designed with an 'old boat' feel in mind. I think David will be happy with the interview. I know it's difficult to edit down all of the material. The show had a good balance of community, home, local activities/sights/ specialty shop, cooking & entertaining. I also enjoyed the spliced in sailing footage 😄 nice work!” 

— Maria Milot (Homeowner)
