About Us

Don't leave money on the table! Today, all buyers are viewing homes online, so how your home appears in photos is the 1st impression! We are the premier Vashon Home Staging company with a proven track record of 14 years! Home staging is an investment that makes a big impact on buyers, making it easier for them to visualize the property as their new home They are often more willing to schedule a visit to a property they had viewed online and to overlook less desirable traits. And buyers are often willing to increase the amount they are willing to offer after viewing our staged homes!

My staged homes sell on average three times faster than unstaged homes, averaging just 11 days on the market and have sold for an average of 6% over asking price. To put that in perspective, a 6% increase above asking price for a $500,000 home would be an additional $30,000! Buyers, appraisers and inspectors will see your home as well-maintained.
