Testimonials for Mary Ann Benoit
Jacob Sebring- Associate Broker/Realtor, Keller Williams07/08/2016
Mary Ann did an amazing job staging my clients property, and it showed when it came time to negotiate an accepted full price offer the first day is was on the market!
Robin Smith- Remax06/29/2016
I am a Realtor and hired Mary Ann to perform a staging consultation for my Seller clients. I wanted them to have a professional 3rd party view of their home (other than mine) and someone to provide Sellers with a plan to make the home more appealing to potential buyers. Mary Ann provided detailed comments, room-by-room, how to de-clutter, brighten rooms, maximize perceived room size, and bring color in small, consistent doses to each area/room. She provided a “priority” list of must-do’s for Sellers that they could tackle themselves. As a Realtor who has seen many homes, Mary Ann’s advice and comments were solid and most recommendations were easy to accomplish with little expense. She enabled my clients to understand this process from a Buyer’s perspective — very important in marketing a home and get it SOLD!
Gabe Badger, Home Owner, Anchorage, AK06/03/2016
The house looks awesome! My wife loves the staging and does not want to move now. The staging made a huge difference. It was amazing. I love the “feel” of the house now, I just want to hang out and relax here. Once we put it on the market there was a ton of interest. It really helped alot. Buyers really love the way it looks.

Darcy Holt, Eclipse Real Estate Investments, Inc., Anchorage, AK12/15/2015
I had the pleasure of working with Mary Ann on my most recent rehab project in Anchorage. As a real estate investor I know the importance of showcasing a property, and Mary Ann’s artistic flair and attention to detail were reflected in the end product she delivered. From furniture placement to window blind adjustment, Mary Ann helped me to recognize things I would not have thought of to make the house more appealing to potential buyers. Her professionalism and follow-up are qualities I look for and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone looking for help attracting buyers in the sale of a home.
Kathleen Friel, Anchorage, AK08/25/2015
“As FSBO sellers, Mary Ann staged our home on a Friday and we listed it the next day and had an open house. By Sunday, we had a full price offer! Everyone commented that our home looked beautiful and our “pride of ownership” was very apparent. We were extremely pleased with our results”.
Carla Williams- Anchorage Alaska07/22/2015
“Northern Lights Home Staging provided above and beyond service in regard to establishing a home sale Facebook site and coordination with the photographer and general internet. Northern Lights Home Staging was very helpful with suggestions and research into how to market our “for sale by owner” home to potential buyers on the internet”. Carla sold her FSBO home within 2 days after listing for an above asking price offer!
Cara Staab- Homeowner- Anchorage, Alaska02/19/2015
I was very pleased with the staging help provided by Northern Lights Home Staging and Design. Mary Ann was very quick on her feet, and provided a range of practical and affordable options including re-staging items on hand for more effective placement, tips for de-cluttering, and ideas for economical purchases that would give a big bang for the buck. Mary Ann has a great eye for balancing a home so that potential buyers can see themselves living there when they first walk up to the door.
We sold our house 6 days after staging for full asking price.
