HSR Certified Home Staging & Redesign Professional eager to serve clients in ATHENS, CLEVELAND, SPRING CITY, DAYTON, ETOWAH, SWEETWATER, CHATTANOOGA in Southeast Tennessee.
Certified Professional Home Staging Consultant since November 2008.
HSR is currently the first and only truly Accredited staging training program! The Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), has thoroughly reviewed and Accredited our training materials!
Ready 2 Stage is ready 2 serve Athens & Cleveland, Tennessee and surrounding areas with a variety of services offered to home sellers wishing to improve the resale value of their properties and those wishing to redesign a trouble area in their home. We offer in-home consultations for home sellers and special discounts for Realtor Partners.
We will prepare the seller's home to emotionally appeal to buyers, so that they can imagine living there. We also take photos of the staged rooms to be used in their marketing efforts. With over 84% of home buyers searching the internet 1st, it's critical that your home marketing photos be outstanding.
The first challenge of a Realtor is convincing the home seller to have their home staged. We can help with this task by taking the pressure off the Realtor, because we are expected to "critique" and make suggestions and comments about the home.
Realtors can easily incorporate the staging service into their business by partnering with Ready 2 Stage and including a consultation with their listing package. This will also give you industry status. Agents will want to show your listings--professionally staged, move-in ready homes.
Professionally staged homes sell 50% faster and for 6-10% more money than unstaged homes. This will give you happy clients. The cost of staging is much less than the first price reduction. Stage it first!
Happy clients=referrals and that will mean more listings.
You ladies worked miracles on our house, you even made my doubting husband a believer, we are both shocked and thrilled of the difference that it's made. It makes me want to buy my own house all over again. Good Job!!
Thanks, Anne and Gary.
I have called upon Lori for two separate projects in my home. Her innate good taste is a perfect compliment to her youthful enthusiasm and energy for a needed facelift for any area of your home! I highly recommend her services. She is honest, dependable and reliable.

You have captured our style and turned our vacant house into an inviting home. We love what you have done. Thank you so much, Greg & Pam Lohning
I'm a Real Estate agent that decided to sell my own home. I was so impressed with the ladies at Ready 2 Stage. I decided to use them and was thrilled with the results. The first client that looked made an offer. I plan to use them again on the home I buy or build.
I am delighted to have found Ready 2 Stage and Lori Donegan! As a professional Realtor I set high standards for myself as well as those with which I work. Lori and her staff certainly fit the bill. I have used Ready to Stage on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. One of my listings had a contract within three days! I truly believe that through Lori's work I can count on many more showings than I would have if my listings had not been staged.
Lori and her team work in perfect harmony with my sellers, amazingly creating a calming atmosphere that puts all parties at ease in what can be a very stressful time for the sellers. The result I get from Ready to Stage is literally "picture perfect".
One of the many things I like about working with Lori and Ready 2 Stage is the flexibility in services that are offered. Because every seller is different, she works with their budget, house, furnishings and circumstance to stage and create a feeling of a warm sellable house even from a pallet of starkness or clutter.
I encourage you to contact Lori and let her show you before and after pictures. I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised!
