To Whom It May Concern:
We chose Laura Baker ofReady? Set,… Sell! Home Staging and ReDesignto ensure a quick sale of our property at the highest possible price.I was comfortable inviting Laura into our home and trusted her opinion.Laura was knowledgeable, creative, and assertive as she toured our home, giving honest advice and guidance which resulted in an absolutely stunning property which resulted in a full appraisal price offer after just 4 months on the market!
Laura was able to paint, fix, build, clean, bring in furniture and decorations as well as keeping an eye on our home since we had already vacated the property.Her understanding of color and placement brought out the potential of every room as well as maximized the space.Laura was honest and non-threatening when transforming our property from an individualized style to a look that was compatible with the majority of buyers.She even took care of the real estate photos which brought us many more showings than we expected.
Laura was not only knowledgeable about home staging but also familiar with several real estate professionals.By providing us with a referral to Kris Johnston of Re/Max, we sold the property for 16 thousand dollars above the price the prior two agents recommended we list our property at.In the end, we benefited greatly by utilizing Laura Baker's expertise and would recommend her services to anyone looking to sell their home or just decorate their existing home.

Here are the links to the blog posts about this particular home.
"We were delighted with the staging of our house on Blackhawk Drive. Although we loved the house decorated to please us, we finally realized that - that style was not going to sell to today's buyer. Laura and Charlie definitely have a recognition and vision of what it is that the buyer of the 21st Century is looking for, and they know how to produce it. The transformation was amazing and pleasing to the eye. Obviously, the buyer saw the beauty of "our" house, and it sold in less than two weeks of the time Laura and Charlie finished the staging. We would recommend them without reservation." 07/2008 Jan and Bill Kohls
"My husband mentioned last night at first he was concerned why I was having Laura at the house, but now he said he sees how it has made a difference even in the manner we are living in the house. He feels we are more organized and that the house always looks nice. We have become more disciplined and we are enjoying it. Thank you again for all your help." 10/2008 HL & HT of Lake Mills
