Staging

Staging is included with every home we list. We know that staged homes sell for more. That's why we do it. We are committed to getting a seller the best possible price and giving a buyer the confidence that he is buying the best possible product. This makes the process quick and seamless for both parties.

Below you will see some transformations that got our clients those seamless results. Click on the photos to see them in a larger format. And call us to discuss. We are passionate about this.

Family Room:

Office:

The office became an office instead of a catch-all. The desk was replaced with a more substantial one.

Family Room:

Before
After
The removal of inessential items helped this seller to get ready for showings much more easily. It also created a peaceful ambiance in this Family Room.

Master Bedroom:

Before

Proper lighting helped to make this Master Bedroom function better as well as beautify it.

Courtyard:

Before
After
An Interior Courtyard went from humdrum to WOW in short order.
The seller said she had a party after the transformation and her guests didn't leave until 1 am!

Dining Room:

Before
After
The empty room in the Before photo was being used as a playroom which we transformed into its rightful function as a Dining Room. Never fear though, Parents, we did recreate an adorable playroom closer to the kitchen. It was a Win/Win.

Family Room:

Before
After
The removal of the black chair in the foreground helped to open the room. A rack from the garage (formerly holding paint) provided a focal point. An extra desk from the office was used to create a console under the TV instead of a lot cords leading to a tiny shelf that was out of scale.

Office:

Before
After
First and foremost is the elimination of clutter. Secondly, proper placement of important furniture pieces and elimination of unnecessary ones, is where I always be gin.
Note: the dark desk against the wall became the console under the TV in the Family Room in the previous photo.

Secondary Bedroom:

Before
After
The addition of a lighter quilt lightened up this bedroom. The beautiful dresser was hidden in the corner.
Here it is enjoyed esthetically as well as a nightstand.

Another Improved Secondary Bedroom:

Before
After
Here the bed was lowered by removing the bed frame. This is good to do when you have a low ceiling and/or when you have accessory furniture that is much lower than the bed. Also, Bedmaking 101 is a classI teach, to almost every homeowner.
Note: the tall dresser looming over the bed does not work well in this space. It found it's perfect place in a niche in the hallway.

Family Room:

Before
After
Darkness reined in the before photo. Light bright pillows, ottomans and a mirror on the coffee table reflect more light and help to brighten the whole room. The prints over the sofa had faded and were replaced with fresh ones, also.

Secondary Bedroom:

Before
After
This bedroom lacked pizzazz and was simply too basic.
Some additional bedding and pillows found in the linen closet were put to work freeing room to store less attractive items. A win-win.

Master Bathroom:

Before
After
The after photo pf this master bath is lighter, brighter.
The addition of plants really helps the hardness that is usually evident in large bathrooms.

Office:

Before
After
The beautiful rug that is almost unseen here was unnecessary in this location but found its perfect spot in the entry.

Game Room:

Before
After
Lighter and brighter. Better accessorized.

Backyard:

Before
After
Repositioning and eliminating inessentials, showed the careful planning and beauty of this rear yard.

Family Room:

Before

This Family Room was improved by moving the office into another room.

Dining Room:

The proper positioning of accessories is essential in designing a beautiful room. That made the difference in this Dining Room.

Master Bedroom:

Before
After
Fresh bedding, new drapes and accessories made the difference in this Master Bedroom.

Bedroom:

Before

Too much furniture in the wrong places crowded this room.
The result, light, bright, airy and inviting.

THE REASON I STAGE...BY Lorene Angelos Rice

All homeowners fear getting ready for showings. With children it becomes even more complex. Once I help them with the staging many say they can get ready for a showing in 10 stress free minutes. Part of this is selfish, I want a stress free client.

Another reason I stage is I want to ready you for your photoshoot. 97% of homebuyers begin their search online. If you don't look beautiful in your photos you will be quickly eliminated and we want you to be chosen. Our attention to detail will surprise the buyer and I am often told that they are not disappointed.

The final reason is, its fun. Even if this is not your "thing" you will be excited about the result. Many people say that they are sorry they didn't do it 5 years ago. When I hear that, I am sorry, too!
