Gabe Sanders the remodeling in this home was very well done with attention to detail, so staging it was a pleasure.  I met the buyers as well and they were so excited to be moving in!

Great idea to paint out the brick fireplace Maureen, it always gives an instant lift to a home creating value in the eyes of the buyer.

Paint certainly does update an older fireplace, Michelle!  It's a quick fix that provides an excellent ROI.

incredible difference in each room Maureen! The home owners followed the staging suggestions beautifully for the updates.

I love how the fireplace turned out. Definitely more appealing to buyers today.

The changes in the kitchen are really quite remarkable. Hard to believe it is the same kitchen. This home won't last long now.

Love the updates, Maureen, but I have to say, your staging created a cohesiveness that really brought the whole house together as a whole.  Lovely job!

Quickly, professionally and with a little fun!

The palette was simple but so effective.  It went so nicely with the woods  and the stainless steele appliances.  This is what staging should look like:  placement of some great pieces of furniture and a neutral color that can be  added to with what ever color scheme the new owners decide to go with.  My favorite part of the updating was removing the funny little balacony from the front of the home.  Gorgeous!

Hi Susan ~ that upper deck was SO  ugly, and I too was so glad to see it removed!  The house ended up with clean lines that nearly everyone would be able to live with.

Maureen, what a wonderful transformation of a ho-hum, not-so-nice house into one many people would want to live in. Your staging is wonderful.

Maureen, it looks like a major renovation was involved. The property is greatly improved, and of course your staging enhanced the home so buyers can visualize themselves in the property.

Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS ~ the home was completely remodeled as shown, and this seller (who's been my client for quite a few years) believes that staging draws in potential buyers much more effectively than showing it vacant.
