home stager: Thinking of Selling? - 05/19/10 06:33 AM
Why wait until you are ready to place your home on the market. In today's world, every house needs to be in tip-top shape before putting the "For Sale" sign in the front yard. Buyers are looking for a home that is move in ready. So don't wait until you are ready to move; instead contact a Professional Certified Home Stager and receive an in-home consultation. This will allow you to perform the recommendations and upgrades a little at a time, instead all at once.
Here at East Coast Staging & Re-design, we do just that. We want to help (0 comments)

home stager: Re-Design One Room or Your Whole House - 04/01/10 07:52 AM
I was contacted by a client that needed a new look in her home. She had a beautiful home, but just didn't feel like home to her. After I meet with them, decidied what they style was and listened to what they were looking for, they followed my recommendations and the new look is exactly what they were looking for. Before: Even thought there was plenty of natural light, the room was very dark and crowded.
After: A few coats of paint, moving some furniture around and what a great living space they have now!

home stager: Business Expo - Update - 01/30/10 05:15 PM
Well had a blast at my first Home & Business Expo today put on by the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce. I meet a lot of great people with many business opportunities. I've heard that many do not do these sorta functions, but I'm hear to tell you, it was FANTASTIC! But again, here on the East Coast Staging is not as popular as it is on the West Coast. But East Coast Staging & Re-design and the other local stagers are really starting to make our mark! Here is a picture of my booth.
