While the cat’s away…..

So it’s the beginning of the week …..and I get a call to consult with some clients  and subsequently probably stage their home.  They mention to me when I get there that this is a quick decision to list their home “this week” before they leave for a holiday on the weekend.

The pressure is on…..(you’ll understand when you see the before pics)

Ok, so there’s a little work to be done here.  They’re going to need that holiday.

Thank goodness they were only moving next door and could box items up and just walk it into their new home.  There were a few suggestions made for the clients in this home but the biggest was to change the lighting. Track lighting in the dining room wasn’t going to present well and for a $60 (yes, it was only $60) change they were going to well make their money back, and give the presentation that a dining room needed.

Here’s what the client had to say:

“We weren’t sure about staging our house, but we trusted our Realtor and he really recommended Karen’s services. Karen gave us a lot of guidance on how to get ready for the staging and on the day of, we couldn’t believe it — she pulled up with a trailer full of furnishings and completely transformed our house. She was very respectful of our belongings and used what we had along with pieces she had brought to make our house look more elegant, refined, and spacious than it ever had while we were living in it! We got a really good price on our house and I have no doubt that the staging had a lot to do with it. Thanks Karen!”

The clients came home to a sold house……I love a happy ending!
