Decorating to Live! Staging to Sell! Home Staging Consultation


In today's real estate market your home needs to be a SHOWSTOPPER to receive top dollar! 

What we do

Decorating to Live!   Staging to Sell!

We create opportunity

Many buyers first look at pictures on the internet to see if they will even consider a house.  If they don't like your pictures it's only a click away from losing a buyer. Don't miss this opportunity to show your home in an exceptional way by making sure it is "camera ready". This is where home staging comes in.

We enhance the value of your home

I am here to look at your home through a buyer's eye. There's a difference in decorating your home to live in, and staging it to attract the most buyers when you are preparing to sell it. It's a proven fact that staged homes sell faster and for more money than unstaged homes. Who wants to keep cleaning their home for showings every week while the home just sits there with no offers.  After 30 days on the market the home starts to become stale. Buyers will wonder why it hasn't sold yet. What's wrong with it? Your realtor will want to recommend a professional home stager. Why not invest in staging at the beginning. This reduces time on the market, and buyers will be excited about your SHOWSTOPPER home.

We know what today's buyers want

What are the desires of every home seller?  Sell it faster!  Obtain top dollar!  Do you know where you home is positioned in today's market compared to the competition?  The longer it takes to sell your home, more homes come on the market, and, are your competition.

We create emotional excitement

Staging will create that emotional excitement which stops the buyer from looking and presents an offer on your home. Imagine if your SHOWSTOPPER home was the one that several realtors were anxious to show their clients.  Lets work together to get your home SHOWSTOPPER ready. 

I invite you to call me today to discuss your staging and decorating needs. (248) 921-1195
