home stagers in ann arbor: Celebrating Our 3rd Anniversary with Two SOLD! Homes - 09/18/08 08:03 AM
RE:STYLE Home Staging and Redesign Just Celebrated Its 3rd Anniversary!
And we did it by de-staging one house yesterday, and we'll continue the celebration by de-staging a second one tomorrow! Again, proof that staging works!
Here are some Before and After photos:
House #1--Ann Arbor, MI
This house was lived-in when I first went for the consultation. But after discussion with the client, we all realized that they would have a difficult time living in it in a staged condition.
