 OK, here is the Master Bedroom before:

Sorry, I couldn't get into the bedroom to get a better angle. Somewhere in there is the bed that the homeowners were sleeping in!

This 1920's California Craftsman home located in Pasadena, CA sold in two weeks for the full asking price last month. Clearly, staging gave it an edge over all the other unstaged homes on the market in this area and price range. The photos on the MLS and in the brochure, provided by Moving Mountains Design as part of the staging package, showed this charming home to its best advantage, creating interest with home buyers.

Moving Mountains Design is the premiere home staging company in Pasadena, California. We specialize in staging vacant homes located in the San Gabriel Valley in Pasadena, Arcadia, San Marino, La Canada/Flintridge, South Pasadena & Alhambra as well as the San Fernando Valley. If you are selling your home, or you are a Realtor with a listing that you think would benefit from staging, please call us at (626)441-8975.

Michelle, you have worked magic again!  I love the clean lines of the furniture you have selected.  They are a perfect backdrop for this home.  No wonder it sold so quickly!

Michelle, this could become an ad poster for the benefit of De-cluttering.  Very nice job.

Jo: Coming from you, that is a great compliment. Thank you.

Gary: The house was scary when I first saw it. But the homeowners were game and did a great job following my recommendations so I could stage it to its best advantage. Thanks for your comment.

Michelle, I have been meaning to ask where you get your florals.  I am impressed with the quality and variety.  You seem to always place greenery in spots where it adds value but is not overwhelming.  Jo

Thanks Jo. I get florals from a variety of places. Small plants usually come from Ross, Home Goods (probably the most purchases from there) and various other places. I buy a lot of loose flowers and greens from Michaels when they are on sale. I also hit the sample sales at the LA Mart where you can get some really beautiful high end stuff very cheaply. I am always on the look out. How about you?

Hi Ella: Thank you. After staging we supply our clients with professional grade photos to use on the MLS and other marketing materials. Its a one-two punch that knocks the competition (other homes on the market) out of the running.

Hi Michelle,

Speaking from experience, having had you stage my listings and my own home, your AWESOME!  And the pictures you take are great too.  Makes my job as an agent so much easier having a professionally staged home and professional photographs to use with the lmarketing materials.

Michelle,  No problemo.  You deserve it.  I had a showing today at my home for a family relocating from Dallas.  I don't know if they appreciated the style of our home.  I think they would fit better in a regular Pasadena traditional.  I need to get a West Side buyer to purchase my home.  Also I can tell that the shared driveway is an issue for people when they look at the home.  I hardly even notice we share the driveway, but the concept is hard for people to wrap their heads around.  Oh well. I guess I might just have to stay here...not too bad a deal.

the befores and afters Michelle tell the whole story.... That is key to selling houses today yet I have a hard time getting some sellers to see that. I am doing it myself for my own properties....

Kathy: There are some very good home stagers in your area. Some might be willing to talk to you about how to sell home staging to your clients, or they may be willing to meet with your clients to convince them directly.

I've been staging for about 4 years. I keep current by frequenting the wholesale merchandise mart (where I can see what will be in the stores next season) and in the Pacific Design Center (where I can see whats trending in the high end market).
