Home Staging Helps Seattle Area Home Get Full Price Offer in One Day

Home Stager with Debra RowleyInterior Staging


I was hired to stage this contemporary house in Seattle that was being refurbished when I first saw it. Filled with construction equipment, it was a bit of a challenge to visualize each room's potential. It was so exciting to see the house painted and carpeted so I could bring in the furniture and accessories to complete the transformation.

I was pleased that home staging expert Debra Gould, The Staging Diva, featured this proof that home staging works in her Business of Home Staging blog."

           Very nice Debra,

           I have found it to be true that experienced stagers "see things" to better frame a room than I.  You would think that after 19 years in this biz. that I can stage also.... No Way!!  My partner ARDELL stages most of our listings, and can put the same pieces together in a home that I would use, and her end result works so much better to show.

Thank you everyone, for your positive feedback. I haven't used Active Rain to blog until now, so it really feels good when I get responses from all of you. I really love staging and have found my passion. Isn't it great to thoroughly enjoy what one does to bring happiness to other people's lives?

 Wishing you happy days in staging land,

 Debra Rowley
