Los Angeles Home Staging & Interior Design Clients
As a realtor, I know how important it is for a home to show at its very best when it is presented for sale. The proper staging of a home is most important and can result in a successful and faster sale. I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Michelle Minch of Moving Mountains Design in preparing and staging homes that I have had listed for sale. Michelle's creative ideas to work with each space of the interior and exterior of the home are combined with unique decorative accents and lush fabrics that lend to the enhancement of the home's features without detracting from them. The results are amazing.
Working with Michelle is a stress free and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend her as being outstandingly creative in her field.

When I first met Michelle, she was very professional and listened very carefully to my requests and needs as well as our budget constraints. Michelle & her team attended to all the details to a level that exceeded all my expectations. Additionally, she has impeccable taste and her staging, indeed, added tremendous value to my listing.

Through the process of building our home I recieived design recommendations from numerous individuals, including Architects and Interior Designers. Your skills, talents and insights were exceptional compared to all the others Kerri and I met. We truly appreciate your contributuions to our home.
We were honored to be able to market for sale the Carmel home of Helen K. and James E.The design and extensive remodel was accomplished to perfection by the very talented Michelle Minch. Our opening of the home to realtors was welcomed with rave reviews and was the talk of the town. So impressed were the buyers of the home, that they purchased the home fully furnished, to include area rugs, bedding ensembles and some art work, all of which so beautifully worked together to create a very special place.
