Paint colors that get homes sold
How to maximize space, closets, etc.
How to adjust lighting
Shopping list suggestions (if necessary)
How to arrange furniture, accessories, artwork and more

Occupied Home Staging
Occupied Home Staging is a cost effective staging practice designed for homeowners who will remain living in their home during the selling process. For this service, we use the homeowners’ existing furniture and decor rearranged in a way that will appeal to today’s buyer. We also de-clutter, de-personalize, and organize the home.
Vacant Home Staging
Home staging for vacant properties is imperative in today’s real estate market. Oftentimes, vacant properties remain unsold for extended periods of time because they have little to no interest.
