Home Stager with Glastonbury Home Staging

We get so busy at times and somehow for some families; their home get lost (and neglected) in all the business of life.

This family called me right before their youngest was about to graduate high school and the wife had moved ahead to start a new job. The husband was left with getting the house ready for sale so they could join her....

On my first visit this is how I found their family room:


BEFORE: dark room with fireplace


After: I think it was a dramatic change. 

I have to say this job was most gratifying.

Wow!! Talk about night and day transformation!!  I'll bet your clients were thrilled to see what their home could look like.  Buyers would have walked right out of the "before" scenario.

Rhonda - Removing the wallpaper and having the walls painted made a huge difference.  Also, my eye now goes to the warm fireplace, and not the huge t.v.!  Great job!

Thanks Karen. The room felt so much lighter when it was done.

Maureen - Thank you. I was taken aback when I I first went to this house. The house had great curb appeal, but the interior was a huge disappointment. The homeowner was ready to make the changes so he was great to work with.


Sally - The homeowner agreed to every suggestion; it was a lot of work but worth it.  They had a contract in 24hrs.   We worked on it for 2 months prior to listing.

Hi Rhonda!!!  So good to see you on AR again!!!  Thank goodness they removed that wallpaper - or was it a faux finish?  Great results!

Hey, Julia. Thanks so much. I have you to thank for giving me a nudge to get back in the game. I really enjoyed our chat a while back. Maybe we could meet at a half-way spot sometime, I would love to get together with you.

Hi Rhonda,

Now that is a before and after, the kind of job that really shows off home staging at it's best. Great job! You were so fortunate that the owner agreed to change the walls and floors. Beautiful.
