It was a pleasure working with DVHA for our food court upgrade project. The team is very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Their customer service is excellent, and was consistent throughout the entire process. The final product exceeded our expectations, and we shall definitely reach out to them for any future needs.

DVHA is a pleasure to work with. From our first conversation through to delivery of the product and beyond, the DVHA team exceeded our expectations in quality, service and support. They said if I could imagine it, they could make it happen and they did, all while staying within budget and our tight timeline!
Lisa Koftinoff, PMP, Progressive Ventures Construction
I have worked with DVHA on a number of projects throughout my career over the past decade. They have a great selection of product and do not hesitate to customize to the needs of the client. On my most recent project, I required a few table and chair sets for a new café section of a convenience store located in Iskut, a remote community of northern BC. I had a short time period and a limited budget and DVHA was the first company that came to mind. As expected, DVHA provided excellent service and we received our furniture on the earlier end of our quoted timeline.
Beth Thompson, Senior Interior Designer, Ashley Pryce Interior Design
We used DVHA in a very tight timeline, and the chairs were delivered on time, look great and are very comfortable. We appreciated their responsive and friendly service.
Barry Greening, Operations Manager, Mayfair Shopping Centre
We were referred to DVHA Hospitality Furniture by our interior design consultant as a potential supplier for custom designed furniture to give us a specific product with higher end look and feel. We contacted DVHA and were very happy with our relationship. Their friendly and customer service driven attitude prompted us to try them out as a new vendor and we were very pleased with the outcome. We received our order on time and at the quoted price but were further impressed that the quality exceeded our original expectations. We are expecting to add to our DVHA Furniture collection in the near future and would not hesitate to recommend them to others considering their product. My thanks go to Devon (the “face” of DVHA) and the team for their outstanding customer service!

It is a pleasure to work with de Vera Hellyer & Associates. Their hospitality design experience and great product offering proves to be the best resource our office consistently relies upon. They give us a variety of solutions with top drawer service and are a lot of fun to work with.
John Smale, Pace Interior Design
I was given a virtual tour of all the product lines that de Vera Hellyer & Associates represent and was overwhelmed at the depth and breadth of their knowledge and their understanding of the design industry. That expertise and experience coupled with their friendly dealings and follow through make DVHA a very dynamic company.

Working in such a demanding industry, it is a pleasure to be able to work with people that understand what it means to 'need it yesterday'. It has been wonderful working with Tonette & Derek on my recent projects, for their extensive knowledge & experience in the industry has ensured that I am able to find products that not only meet the design criteria, they also come in on time and within budget. With quick responses & excellent customer service they have truly become a part of the solution.
Julie Pollock, BAID, Maxam Design International
I want to express how pleased I am with both the process and the results working with Tonette and Derek. With both their combined years of experience in the design industry and their creative knowledge; we were able to work together as a team to specify the right details for the job. The design turned out fabulous; our client is happy, and the stunning craftsmanship of their products will keep the job looking fresh and new. I would recommend them to anyone; plus, they are very fun and relaxing to work with.

Working with Tonette and Derek was an exceptional service experience. Their vast resources presented me with an extensive range of options, then their knowledge and experience guided me through the decision process, enabling me to select the perfect style and functionality to suit my requirements. I truly would have been lost without them.
Kim Fawthorpe, Facilities Management (Capital Projects), University of Victoria
Tonette and Derek appeared one day with a wealth of interior and furniture experience and a wide range of product lines to offer. I’m always facing requests for products that don’t fit in with our standards and I know that I can call them to inquire about alternative product lines, materials and designs. They are a valued supplier to the University.
Jon Fisher, ccm, General Manager, Willow Park Golf & Country Club
Derek & Tonette, as you know, extraordinary comes from rare people...and you are amongst them. In our clubhouse team's efforts to create standing ovation experiences it can be as simple as, how comfortable our guests are sitting in their chair! Your creativity, experience, resourcefulness, outstanding quality and style, inspire our members to visit frequently and stay as long as they possibly can. Thank-you!
Lee Athias, Casino Manager, Grey Eagle Casino
To whom it may concern, I have had the pleasure to work with “de Vera Hellyer & associates” on two major projects in the past two years and am more than pleased to offer this letter of recommendation on their performance. The de Vera Hellyer team were the successful bidder to provide the entire selection of Casino seating and the admin offices’ furniture for the new Grey Eagle Casino in Calgary. Their service was always exemplary throughout every phase of the process up to and including the after delivery situations that come up on every project. The attention to detail and most importantly the follow-up to assure on time delivery of the many hundreds of items involved in the order was very much in evidence and much appreciated by the project team. The quality of products supplied, combined with the service provided were the biggest factors in our selection of de Vera Hellyer to provide seating in the expanded High Limit Room at the Grey Eagle. This second project was a fast track project that had to be completed on a very tight schedule and again Tonette and her team came through with flying colours delivering on time and allowing us to open as planned and on budget. I am very comfortable offering this recommendation, knowing there will be a satisfied project team that has been well looked after by the de Vera Hellyer team. Please contact me should you require further information or specific details of the projects I discussed above.
