Thank you so much. We sold the house last night to a young couple for over the asking price. It took 5 days. We are very very happy. Thanks for your guidance and input. It made a huge difference. I've given you a glowing recommendation to Vivianne and Mark (the realtors). I told them how helpful your specific suggestions were and how your excellent communication skills helped clarify what was needed without making me feel defensive. I only wish I'd had you come through a month or two before listing.

I want to let you know that our home got sold within 2 hours! We are in the final stages of processing the sale. Thanks a lot for your advice. I think it made a big impact in making the house presentable to the buyer.

Just a short note to say “thank you” for staging my condo for sale. I was extremely happy with the results! My real estate agent, Ronn James managed to get $5,000.00 over my asking price for the condo. I am sure that the staging you provided was one of the reasons my condo sold so quickly. I thought that my condo was ready to sell as it was, but the suggestions that you provided made a big difference. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone listing their home for sale.
