Georges Flowers Make the Day for Madison WI Home Stager

Home Stager with Creative Edge Home Staging

    When the doorbell rang and I was greeted by the Georges Flowers’ delivery man I was so surprised.  The beautiful bouquet followed on the heels of a full day home staging job that took a ho-hum home and transformed it into a home that will showed so much better on the MLS, and for Open Houses and showings.

     And while these the sellers showed their gratitude to this Madison WI home stager with bright colored petals, I too was grateful that they followed through on the owner’s obligations discussed in the home consultation report prior to our scheduled hands-on staging day.

    I apply the Home Staging Resource’s “F-E-E-L  H-O-M-E” strategy during each home staging consultation.   The “O” of this strategy represents the Owner’s Obligation in preparing the home for the scheduled staging day.  The “M” of the strategy represents the need to Modernize the room’s furnishings so the rooms don’t have give sellers a dated feeling when viewing the home.

    By rolling up their sleeves and taking care of the dirty work in advance of the scheduled staging day these sellers made applying the rest of the “F-E-E-L  H-O-M-E” a breeze for this Madison WI home stager.

Yes, I was thankful because these sellers made the necessary changes that included areas such as the Living Room where they applied the “O” and the “M” of the

 “F-E-E-L  H-O-M-E” strategy. 


v    Replaced out-dated sofa with a more modern sofa with clean lines.

v    Eliminated excess furniture and clutter throughout the living room.

v    Thoroughly cleaned windows, baseboards, flooring and ceiling fans.

v    Replaced the drapery even though they were custom-made (in the 80’s). 

v    Painted over the dated brass ceiling fan by apply a brush-brass paint.

v    Convinced the children that moving Keepers the Rabbit from out of the living room was a temporary and wise decision.

I know receiving George’s Flowers following a home staging job will only happen once in blue moon but it sure made me realize the impact that home stagers can have on a home seller’s life.  And for this Madison WI home stager once is good enough!

Hi Sally & David:  Oh I surely agree.  There was a lot of cleaning to do but they did an excellent job both in terms of understanding the FEEL HOME concept and tackling the thorough cleaning.  My fingers are crossed that this home moves quickly onto the buyers short list.  Have a great day and TGIF!

Hi Carol--how sweet of those sellers to send you flowers.  Could they have gotten any more "stuff" into that living room?  Nice decluttering and staging, and paint is my favorite friend for updating things like ceiling fans!

Hi Janet:  That's what I was thinking.  The hardest part was convincing them that Keepers the Rabbit (in cage) probably wasn't the best way to welcome potential buyers.  I was so touched to receive those flowers - it totally made my day!

Carol, what a wonderful job you did-great decluttering and obviously they liked and appreciated the work you did and probably the way that you did it.
