Dolores Styffe

New Bern, NC


"STAGE TO GO" HI my name is Dolores Styffe, originally from Long Island, New York, and in 2009 moved to New Bern, N.C. In 1993, while living in N.Y., I was the founder and CEO of the company” Hawaiian Tropical Paradise Inc.” I created theme parties such as Hawaiian, Jungle, shipwreck just to name a few. I employed a team of craftsmen to construct, from my sketches, 8x8 huts tiki bars, jungle animals and more. My Company took off within the first week of advertising and soon became the largest party company in the N.Y. area from home parties to corp. parties. I helped my clients redesign their interior and exteriors for their up coming parties and realized this is what I would love to do. I soon began helping friends and neighbors in staging or redesigning their homes in N.Y. and in 2008, sold my company, moved to N.C. where I pursue my passion. Now as a professional home Stager, my goal is to prepare your home with emphasis on presentation and appearance of the interior and exterior.

Home staging is a marketing edge that will help your home or condo stand out from the competition in the sale of your home with minimal investment. Whether selling or renting, vacant or an occupied residence, I will show off the features of your home to their best advantage.
CURB APPEAL: Your home’s exterior is your first chance to reel in potential buyers and make that first impression. The attractiveness(Curb Appeal) of your home from the street will inspire prospective buyers to your front door, making them imagine themselves living there, and at the same time, increasing the value of your home. Curb Appeal is crucial. I will discuss with you the improvements that can be made to your property, which you may chose to complete on your own, and will attract a larger audience. Whether working together with the homeowners, real estate agents or builders, my goal is to set the stage for a successful sale as quickly as possible and for top dollar.


SERVICES: Starting with a simple consultation, I would review your home and give you advice on the improvements that can be made. I have a professional team of landscapers, cleaning crew and handymen, at reasonable rates, on hand to assist me when needed.

OCCUPIED HOMES: Working with the flow of your home, I will eliminate clutter, edit and arrange furniture, improve curb appeal, depersonalize, and assist in enhancing first impressions. I will work within your time frame and budget to do as little or as much as you desire, making staging for you easy and stress free.
I will use your existing furniture and accessories in creative ways wherever possible, also incorporating some of my inventory as well if needed. I will create up dated spaces that will reflect a warm and inviting style, which will appeal to all potential buyers.

VACANT HOMES: Homes that are vacant come across cold and uninviting leaving buyers confused as to the proper function of the space. I have a large inventory of furniture/accessories/window treatments/ etc. at reasonable rental fees that will transform your empty space making it desirable to the largest number of buyers.

NOT SELLING: If you are not selling your home or condo but need help de cluttering, organizing, improving curb appeal or want to create new spaces, feel free to call me.

I wanted to list my home in Dec but my real estate agent said that I needed to update the space. She recommended Dolores Styffe who was good at staging. She has done such a amazing job that my husband wants to stay. She has transformed my home in 3 weeks with furniture placements, window treatments, painting, accessories, and giving every room a function. I will be listing my home when Dolores finishes my curb appeal and for more money. Thank you Dolores.

My home was always a problem. I didn't know how to place my furniture or how to accessorize. With using what I already had, she gave every space a warm and inviting feeling, organizing, she decluttered and adding window treatments that I never had. It needed updating and Dolores has done that. Many thanks Dolores.
