When I had decided to use Staged With Class to stage a property I was selling, I had seen their work in another house I was looking to buy, but I was thrilled to see how beautiful my own house came out. Joan is so easy to work with. She spent a lot of time getting to understand how I wanted to portray my house and did a lot of preliminary work. She gave me a lot of helpful suggestions, and she spent a lot of time staging it. In the end, I sold my house quickly. I couldn't have done it without her. Thanks Joan!
When the realtor suggested staging the house, my husband and I were reluctant. Our investment property had already lost money. We wanted to cut losses not spend more on staging. However, the realtor told us the house had challenges that could make it difficult to sell. The identical house two doors away had been for sale for almost a year. We weren't sold on staging but I would at least investigate. I studied the websites of the stagers in the South Jersey area. After calling them all, I decided to start with Staged with Class. I liked Joan's demeanor over the phone. She sounded professional, but was not pretentious or intimidating. Although I was still not quite convinced, I wanted to meet with Joan at the property to hear what she had to say. As we walked through the house, Joan talked to me about the trends and styles that would appeal to a buyer of my type house. She offered suggestions that would enhance the pluses and minimize the negatives.
Her professionalism and friendly manner, along with her knowledge of market trends and buyer wants, began to dissolve my doubts. We painted the walls the colors Joan suggested and held our breath as she strategically put furniture and accessories into place. When she finished, the house was stunning. Magazine gorgeous! The pictures the realtor took did not do it justice. It was even more beautiful in person. Apparently buyers thought so too. We had three interested buyers and the house sold for the price we wanted in 15 days! In the end, staging was worth every penny and saved us thousands of dollars in mortgage payments on an empty house. Thank you, Joan, for a job well done!
Joan, I want to thank you for your superb staging of my mom's house. It had been on the market a number of months, with offers that were way below the asking price. My Realtor was reluctant to drop the price, but my sister and I insisted. Still no decent offers. Then we found you, and you did your magic! We had an offer for our new asking price within 3 days! And then shortly after that we had an offer that was even more - in line with our original asking price! Since we were motivated to sell, we didn't wait to see if we could get even more, but who knows? Thanks a bunch, Joan. You were a pleasure to work with and you have an eye for decorating a space to show it at its best.
Thank you for the stunning transformation of our home! We knew after you had staged our empty townhouse so beautifully that you would work wonders at our home. Your eye for placing our belongings where they make the biggest impact is amazing and the simple rearrangement of our furniture made such a big difference in every room! All of your suggests were spot-on and once done, made a huge improvement. Our home went from nice to fabulous! Your prices are very reasonable and worth every penny because we know it will be those changes you made to our home that get it sold quickly. We're thinking we should have you come to our new home once we move in to help make it perfect too.
We will be sure to let you know when our house is sold, which we know will be soon. Thanks again!
We wanted to drop you a note telling you how happy we were with the staging on our house. We received feedback with every showing, and with out fail the staging was always given 5 stars, and glowing reports. As we conveyed to you when we first met, the staging of our homes is very important to us. We pride ourselves in producing a quality product, in turn need quality design. You delivered exactly that. We are looking forward to working with you on our future projects.
Thank you for the great staging.... the design was perfect! It is a pleasure working with you! See you next time!
"Recently you staged a home for us in Barnegat, NJ. This home belonged to my husband's aunt who passed away 6 years ago. Since that time the house had sat empty and somewhat neglected aside from a few updates. We put the house on the market at the end of March and had no interested parties. I had asked our real estate agent about staging the home but, while she was not against it, she didn't think that it would really make a difference. However, I firmly believed that it would make a huge difference, so I googled stagers in the Barnegat area. I came across your website and liked what I saw in your portfolio. I contacted you and you went to assess the property. Not only did you come up with a beautiful staging plan, buy you made great recommendations about cleaning and updating. We hired you and you completed the job a few days before the open house."
"I can't say enough about your work! The house looks gorgeous! It is so warm and inviting and every person who has seen it has raved about it, including my father-in-law and the real estate agent! In fact, the real estate agent said she would recommend you to all of her clients! You went above and beyond our expectations and you did it all without any assistance from me because, as you well know, we live in Pittsburgh, PA! In addtion, we now have 2 interested parties! Hopefully one of those will be the new owners! Thanks so much for a job well-done! You were very professional and wonderful to deal with! We'll let you know when we get our offer!"
Thank you for the wonderful job you did staging our house for sale. After living in a home for 22 years, you do not know where to start to get ready to sell your house. From our very first meeting, you provided us with guidance and suggestions on how to proceed. You helped us with everything from choosing paint colors for each room to arranging furniture on the patio.
Your attention to detail and professionalism is outstanding. Every room in our house took on a new life with your repurposing our items and adding additional accents of your own. Everyone who comes to our home is impressed with how beautiful it looks. You have made it 'move-in ready'. I am confident that I will be calling you soon to tell you it has sold to a new family who will love it.
Joan's advice was spot on. We followed her every recommendation (paint colors, light fixtures, appliances), and she staged the house beautifully. The result is remarkable: we received an offer 30 days later and the house sold (after being on the market for 14 months).
Well, the house SOLD AFTER 5 DAYS on the market at the asking price and I closed on Monday. That was after it was previously on the market unstaged for 6 months with no offers. Thanks again. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to stage a home to sell.
I just want to say thank you for a job well done. Staging my sister's home was the best thing we did. After you finished all of your hard work in getting the home together it sold in a week and a half. I will refer other people in my family and my friends to you when they need a home sold. Thanks again for a wonderful job.
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!! Thanks for the wonderful job you did decorating the townhouse. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family should they need help in selling their homes.
We want to thank you for the excellent job you did in staging our house in Maple Shade. We are in Texas and needed to have the house revamped, as it was standing empty. We were delighted with the promptness of your service. You were there ready to take on the job, and completed it in a timely manner. You decorated things in an up-to-date fashion, while keeping with the personality of the structure of the house and neighborhood. The little things you did made the house sparkle.
We communicated on the phone and through the internet with ease. We could not tell that there was 1200 miles between us. We would recommend your services to anyone who has a house on the market. You did wonderfully.
THIS HOUSE SOLD IN 1 WEEK AFTER STAGING (Had previously been on the market for 9 months!)
