Enhancing your MLS photo's to attract higher number of potential buyers to come see your home

Staging your home for sale is like throwing a party. Your most important guest will be each potential buyer that comes through the door. The more effort you put into your house ready to sell, the better it will show. Homes that have been decorated purely for the purpose of selling stand out against comparable properties and look great on the websites and in photos. Woud you try to sell your vehicle after driving through mud or a dirt road? NO! You would have it detailed first. That's why you need to do the same for your home before selling.
While growing up my passion for design was encouraged and motivated by my mother and I have carried that with me through today. I enjoy creating floral arrangements with a modern twist, which will make any area have new life breathed into it. I have a passion for organizing and making chaos into the perfect and workable design. Long before I acquired my double certification of Home Staging and Design, I was a House Manager for 12 years, which has allowed me to bring my experience of organizing, de-cluttering and decorating to the table.
I have always had a passion for being artistic and working with color. When looking for ways to utilize my passion, this decision to do Home Staging and Design became so easy. I have always had a niche for design. While studying for my double certification of Home Staging and Design, the enthusiasm became something that motivated me to assist my friends and family with any of their needs when it came to redesigning their home. This career allows me to combine so many interests of mine. I can look at any room and instantly paint a mental picture of what the room needs to bring out its personal beauty.
What our clients think....
Thank you so much for your help staging my room. I can honestly say I had many reservations before you came to help.
I have always felt that an open floor plan was my best option with three active children. We like to change things around all the time and with our furniture and space, we only seemed to come back to the same old layout which got boring. I am also very picky about how I feel things should look and where they should be, so I was honestly not looking forward to the whole process.
You proved me wrong. You came in and made my living room feel cozy and look beautiful! The space is so much more intimate then it was before, and is still functional for our family at the same time.
I can’t wait to show off what you have done!"

I just wanted to write to thank you for taking the time to redesigning our theater/family room. I was always under the impression, from how the room is laid out, that there was only one way to place our furniture.
Your expertise proved that the room could feel warmer and yet still remain functional for our needs.
I love, that the main sofa is directly in front of the fireplace. When designing the fireplace myself, that was my original thought, however I could not make it work on my own. This is now one of my favorite rooms in our home. The accent pieces are beautiful as well."
Thank you so very much!

Two days after you completed your work we had an offer that we accepted. Thank you for everything. If you would like to use my name for future references please feel free. I will be more than happy to tell anyone of your talent and the professional way you conduct business."
