Staged Home in Arcadia, CA Gets An Offer After First Open House!

Staged home in Arcadia gets an offer after first open house!

UPDATE: The REA called me this morning and told me the house is in escrow! Whoo-hoo!

Last week, Moving Mountains Design was hired to stage a 7,000 sq. ft. new construction home in Arcadia, CA. One of my assistants was in the hospital (thankfully she is on the mend and will be back at work next week), one assistant was on vacation in Brazil, and one assistant had to fly up to Sacramento to take care of her mother who had a stroke. It was the perfect storm of staging assistants (or lack thereof). I contacted 3 local stagers and asked if they wanted to help out, never expecting all three to say yes. Besides my 3 new trainee assistants, I was fortunate to have 3 terrific, talented and experienced stagers on my team:

Diane Concialdi of DC Redesign

Lynette Lawson of Starlight Staging

Terri Lucas of Exclusive Home Staging

Needless to say we had a great time. I am only sorry that I didn't have more time to spend with them. Here is the fruit of our labor. Arcadia home staging

When I spoke to the listing agent, he told me they had received an offer very close to the $2.68 million asking price after the first open house. My fingers are crossed I will be receiving a call this week that the house is in escrow.

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks again to Diane, Lynette and Terri. You ladies rock!

Gary: Unfortunately there was a lot of working and not a lot of talking going on. I think I will have to take everyone out to lunch, and then we can talk.

Kathy: Thank you!

Oh Michelle the house looks wonderful.  You and your stagers did a great job.  I think the bedroom is my favorite room.  Love the bedding and the chairs.  Betty

Hi Betty: Thank you. The bedding is one of those bed in a bag ensembles, granted an expensive one. We customize it with lots of throw pillows. The color came out a little wierd in the photo. The sheets are more creamy, not so yellow gold.

Thanks Jo. Glad you like it. Right back at you, Sister!

Michelle, just getting caught up on AR.  The pictures came out gorgeous.  Let me tell everyone...  Michelle moves mountains with her professional approach and her ability to organize the staging day down to a tee.  The entire Moving Mountains Team, Lynette and Dianne were wonderful to work with on this project.  Let me know when it sells.

Thank you very much Patty.

Kym: I am fortunate to get to do some very large homes. Now that we have them figured out, I really enjoy doing them.

Terri: You are too kind. You saw me at my worst working with new assistants and not enough movers. Ah well, it got done, and well enough to get it sold right away. Thank you again for your help.

Chrissie: Thank you for your kind comment.

Michelle, Terri & Team,

These are really gorgeous.  Were you able to pick paint colors, or was that already done when you got the house?

Beth: The house was already painted when they called me. I was happy to work with a color other than gold or tan. I probably would not have chosen blue if it was up to me, but I like the way it turned out. Thanks for commenting.
