In a slow real estate market, home staging is a MUST! Home Staging will create a positive first impression to help sell your home quicker and for top dollar. In today's market, with limited time, most home buyers are looking for "Move-In" condition homes.
Don't let high priced, overblown designers make you think you have to spend a fortune to change the look of your home. You can decorate on a dime within a limited budget by simply using what you have, changing furniture layout and adding a few accessories. You can add to the value of your home without blowing your budget by simply using proven staging techniques. Statistically speaking, a staged home will sell on average 33% faster than a home that has not been staged. Think of home staging as advertising your home to potential home buyers in the best possible light, playing up it's strengths and down playing it's weaknesses. If you are thinking of selling your home or your home is already on the market and slow to sell, call us and we can help you! We KNOW how to work with a budget!!
Pawleys Island, South Carolina is known as one of the oldest summer resorts on the East Coast, located 70 miles north of Charleston and 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach.
In the early 1700's, the families of rice planters who owned plantations on nearby rivers knew that it was unhealthy for their families to be on the rivers during the summer and the living on the seashore at the beach was much healthier. They moved their families to Pawleys each year in May usually until November when they saw the first frost. Pawleys Island, known as "Arrogantly Shabby" still remains a leisurely existence. Pawleys is still known for its laid back atmosphere, hammocks, carefree and barefoot lifestyle. The white sand, wide, pristine beaches encompassed by sand dunes are truly breath taking. The Atlantic Ocean on one side and adjacent creeks behind, you will find families crabbing and fishing on a regular basis.
Strolling on the beach, drifting away for a quiet nap in a hammock and enjoying the serenity that beach living brings are just a few reasons to consider the Pawleys Island area. Whether you are looking to vacation, relocate, purchase a home for sale or in search of real estate investment property, Pawleys Island offers it all. Quality of life still matters here. There are many attractions available within a short drive. One of the favorites is the famous Hammock Shops, home of the original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock since 1889. Be sure to stop in and visit "the Hammock man" Marvin Grant who still hand makes the hammocks. His stories will keep you and the children entertained for hours along with a hidden history lesson. And quoting Marvin, "The only machine we have here is a radio." While everyone gathers around Marvin still carves out time to bring the children back for a demonstration getting the kids involved making their own Pawleys Island hammock necks.....which is the starting process of making the hammock. All Marvin asks in return is to send him a picture or postcard. You will find hundreds upon hundred of post cards from all over the world of people who have visited Pawleys Island, many while vacationing or searching for real estate for sale in Pawleys Island.
"Jennifer is absolutely the best person you could choose if you are staging a home for sale (agents you have to call her for advice here), remodeling a home, or if you just need help with colors and accessories. I have successfully recommended Jennifer to several of my clients who in the end just could not believe the transformation that she created for them. AND ON A BUDGET!!! Jen is very aware of what the budget means, and has both the resources and the talent to pull of a stellar finish "on a shoestring" budget if you need. From colors to furnishings, carpentry work to carpet installation, Jennifer can handle the entire job for you. Agents... you listings are not selling? Have Jennifer spend an hour or two in the house and you will be amazed from feng shui to basic country bumpkin, she can create the look that matches the dwelling. (And your clients don't even have to buy a thing... she just moves it around, gives it a fresh look, and there it is!) Call her today for the very best service and results you can depend on."

I recently hired Jennifer to remodel my entire home. Floors to the ceiling and everything in between and I couldn't be more happy. Not only did Jennifer handle EVERYTHING she did it with me being out of town. We recently decided to relocate and were waiting on our house to sell. I strongly encourage anyone that is contemplating remodeling, design, or home staging work to hire Jennifer Grant. She is of the highest caliber, not only professionally but personally as someone you can trust your home to. She put in new flooring, new paint, new lighting fixtures, exterior work, purchased appliances for us, you name she did. My kitchen is so stunning its hard to believe that was the kitchen we first looked at. She kept us updated throughout the entire process with pictures of the progress along the way. Once we the movers came, she was there 2 days later to help me place all my furniture. My home looks like it is out of a magazine and I am so happy with the results and the choice in choosing Jennifer as our Interior Designer, Remodeling Expert and Home Stager. She did it all and her work is flawless! I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone.
"Jennifer is an extraordinary lady. She is a great organizer, energetic, detailed, a hard worker and multi-tasker. She's a super mom and manages her business and family with expertise and balance. She follows through on every endeavor. Her accomplishments are many and she always proceeds with a positive attitude."
