last six houses staged and sold within 1 week

Home Stager with Chicagoland Home Staging LLC

NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS HOME STAGING Company, Re-arrange It Interiors' 2010 statistics are proving to be strong and solid proof staging works!. The last six houses we staged all sold within 1 week. Proudly serving Chicagoland for 6 years we are your staging experts.

Here is our lastest property in Naperville IL...

Before staging.. The owner relocated 2 large desks, 2 bookcases, and several files to another room which used to over power the room. We staged the room as it was intended.


Before Staging....

The dining room was very long and narrow measuring only 9x14. The owner storaged their hand me down table and we added the accent wall to create a strong focal point and provided new furniture with our target buyer in mind.






another view... We added the desk to replace the sellers keg cabinet and tapper.


Proudly STAGING NAPERVILLE, IL and Chicagoland area. Call Margaret Gehr at Re-Arrange It Interiors for more information.

Wooo Hooo! You go Margaret! Your pics are FAB, but I really love the canvases in the dining room. Where did you get those may I ask? And if ya don't tell me, well I guess I will just have to go and paint them myself ;))) That coffee table almost looks like s Stickley.

Hi Lori, well "tank ya vara much"  Must say my many talents do not include painting my own art..I don't know how you do it!! The pieces came from Value City furniture of all places. Their art is big and reasonably priced. Buying art is always an issue because cheap stuff has a short shelf life. Abstract is my fav because it's just color and goes with anything.

Valerie, You right, I've hesitatied telling new clients especially the ones you really have to sell on staging. We all know there are no quarentees. I always say we need the 3 P"s -  Price, Presentation, and Promotion. Thanks for your comments.

Leanne, This year our turn over is out of this world but there are still a dog or two out there that keeps our average pretty normal. According to the REA they are way over priced and even an amazing transformation doesn't over come that.

Thanks David I'm a big fan of yours as well.

Chrissie, I really enjoy seeing your work as well. Since I'm a terrible writer it just seems easier to post pictures.
