Andy Hodes and The Scenic City Team Keller Williams Realty

I wanted to share with you that this home, after 880 days on the market on and off since September of 2008, went under contract this morning after 36 hours on the market listed by me and staged by the awesome folks at Staged 2 Sell. In less than 24 hours we had 4 showings – all of whom wanted to make an offer but the first showing got there first.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m delighted and our client is delighted.

“Carol Ann and Julie, The Horse Creek Farms property sold within 3 WEEKS of you having staged it. My seller said that he couldn’t have been more satisfied with your work. The home had been getting showings, but no offers prior to your involvement. Feedback from buyers was that it was “cold and masculine”. Staged To Sell listened to that feedback and gave the vacant home a warmer, more comfortable and feminine feel with your rugs, furniture, and accessories. And I believe that showing the buyer how to arrange the furniture in the slightly confusing Great Room made a big difference as well. I will definitely recommend STAGED TO SELL to my clients again.”

“It’s amazing how much bigger the Master and the Living Area look now that they are furnished by Staged To Sell. My pictures look amazingly better. I know that their work is going to make a big difference! They were easy to work with and stayed within my seller’s limited budget. I will definitely recommend Staged To Sell again to my clients.”

Carol Ann’s vision for making a house a home is amazing. Her talent led to an immediate sale for my listing in Hawk’s Cove with a 99% return on the price. This listing previously experienced a 390 day marketing time compared to Carol Ann’s magic touch of only 38 days from list to close!!! Thank you Carol Ann Wolf – you will always be a part of my marketing team.

I listed a home in September that Carol Ann and Julie staged. The difference they made to it was like night and day! The owner & I were very impressed with the quality of work! After I listed the home on the MLS that evening, I received an offer on it the next day. We closed on it soon afterward. I highly recommend the wonderful services of Staged To Sell. Carol Ann & Julie are very nice, professional and enjoyable to work with. They are an incredible, hard-working team!

Thank you so much!!! I love & appreciate you guys!

I have recommended her to another friend of mine recently and her home sold in less than 30 days!

After my wonderful experience with Carol Ann and Julie I have asked them to now help me with decorating my new home. We are currently working together on this next endeavor and I am excited to see what she has in store!

Whether you are looking for someone to help you stage your home to sell or re-design your existing home I would highly recommend Stage to Sell!”

Most of the comments centered around the house needing updating before you guys did the staging. After staging, all of the comments were favorable. Several people put it at the top of their list. Amazing a change of paint and some accessories added to the existing furniture made all the difference. After almost 10 months on the market, after the staging we got a full price offer within 2 weeks. Thank you!!

“I had a vacant house for sale — I had already moved to another state. My realtor, Andy Hodes with Keller Williams recommended Staged to Sell, and I hired them to stage the house. The staging included the great room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom, and master bathroom. In addition, they also staged the front porch, back porch, and back patio, which was a very nice touch (not something that I would have expected).
They did an excellent job. The staging included not only furniture, but numerous other items. For example, they hung art on the walls, placed rugs where needed, set the dining area with dishes and glasses, and included many knickknacks in the kitchen, bathroom, and other areas, which really dressed up the house. You can tell that they take pride in their work.

In summary, they were easy to work with, were very professional, and provided everything that I expected (and more). They would check on the house periodically to make sure that everything was looking good, and they even included some light cleaning when necessary. I really can’t imagine how anyone could do a better job — I give them my highest possible recommendation. By the way, the house sold within a few weeks of having it staged.”

I also trusted them to be in my home when I wasn’t there!!
Thanks Carol Ann and Julie…you two truly are the best!!

“They transformed our home into a more sell-able property. We thought our home looked fairly good for showings on the market, but weren’t getting second showings and we weren’t moving the property as quickly as we’d hoped. Staged to Sell came in, gave it that extra “oomph” needed to get people in our house and it made them realize the potential it had for their own decor. They moved furniture around in ways we never considered. We should have had them come in when we first moved in to have them place furniture! They made our home look like a vacation rental which was just what was needed to help sell our home.

After Staged to Sell came to our home and their photos were posted on the MLS, our showings began to move! People were coming for second showings! The biggest complaint about our home was the proximity to a busy road – Staged to Sell couldn’t help with that, but their decorating helped distract from it and people began to look beyond it and into the beauty of the interior. We had offers within 30 days of their work! The professionalism and eye for design were a HUGE part in the selling of our house, we are certain of it!”

“The staging looked great and I received many comments on how well the home looked. They were very easy to work with and did a great job making an empty home look great. I sell rehabbed houses and “Staged to Sell” will be part of my approach to getting the most out of the homes I sell.”

“My original experience with Staged to Sell was in September 2011. I was living in Soddy Daisy,TN and was going to put my house on the market. I contacted Carol Ann Wolf with Staged to Sell. She and her business partner, Julie, helped to de clutter, re arrange, organize and decorate my home in order to get it ready to sell. I provided her with a budget on how much I was willing to spend on purchasing items to help stage my home. Carol Ann was not only able to shop around and get amazing deals, she also re purposed my existing items which saved me a considerable amount of money!

My experience with Staged to Sell was awesome!! I was amazed at the transformation of my home. She made every room look bigger, better and more put together. My home sold for asking price within 2 weeks of being on the market!!

“They were very easy to work with and stayed within the budget given to them. The house looked beautiful and was sold in less than three weeks. I would highly recommend their services to potential sellers or anyone who wants to improve the look and feel of their home.”

When I decided to call Staged to Sell, my home had been on the market for almost 6 months during the peak selling season. Even though hundreds of people had viewed it on the consumer website very few were actually going to see it in person. Carol Ann and Julie both looked at the photos online and even before we had a contract, made suggestions of things I could do to myself to improve how the house would show.

I really enjoyed working with both of them. They were friendly and professional and clearly knew what they were doing. I was impressed when I saw how hard they worked to find just the right furnishings and accessories that would show off my house in the best possible light. It looked so beautiful I almost wanted to move back in myself! We had more activity in the 5 weeks after they staged it than I had had in the 6 months before. Best of all, I had two good offers on the same day; one was even full price! I couldn’t be more pleased. Clearly this was money well spent! I just wish I hadn’t waited as long as I did. Would I do it again? Absolutely, in a heart beat!

“Carol Ann and Julie,
Thank you again for all the help you guys gave me! Your services were invaluable to me! I was completely overwhelmed by the whole process and you were a wealth of knowledge coming to my rescue!

You took me through step by step of what I needed to do to get my home ready to sell. My goal was to sell my house quickly for top dollar and with your help I accomplished that (contract on house within 3 days of being on the market)!

You two became fast friends to me and I knew you genuinely had my best interest in mind! I totally felt at ease putting my trust in you! You are truly experts in your field. Everyone should use your services to get their home ready to put on the market. What a gift you were to me! You guys rock! Thank you!!!!!!!!!”

“Carol Ann & Julie, 

I signed a contract on my home Friday for a cash sale. The home inspection will be done sometime later next week.

Just wanted to make you aware of this good news.

Thanks for all you did to assist with a faster sell!”

Dustin said it took 27 days once it was on the market.

The home was listed for $249,900 which was somewhat high for this neighbor.  Since I had it listed by a realtor , the price had to be adjusted to get what I wanted. 

I wish I would have known about you’ll before I put the home for sale by owner Nov 1.  

Now that I’m married, we want to build a home in the country so now we can start planning for this new adventure!

 I will keep you posted,

Betty

Dear Carol Ann and Julie:  Thank you so much for your excellent work in staging the Conner St house in December.  Your quick response to my need for paint advice and resources for painters  made the process very pleasant. The photographer did an excellent job of presenting the house online for realtor Dustin Sherlin, and to our delight, we sold it within a week.

Carol Ann and Julie were great to work with. They were professional, worked quickly and delivered their service exactly as promised. The home was tastefully decorated which created a neutral, warm and inviting atmosphere. It enabled the buyer to visualize the home being lived in. We sold the home within 24 hours of listing. I highly recommend Staged to Sell as it will increase your profit margin and encourage a speedy sale!

We had our house on the market for 4 weeks and received an offer. Our house was vacant. The buyer’s financing fell through after taking the house off the market for a few weeks. We had the house immediately staged by Staged to Sell. They finished the staging at 3PM. The house was shown at 5PM on the same day and we received an immediate offer from that showing!! The house looked so inviting after being staged and we think the staging resulted in the immediate offer. We would highly recommend Stage to Sell. They are spectacular!

“From the very start we were highly impressed with the professional manner in which Carol Ann and Julie conducted themselves. They were extremely knowledgeable about their product, and on time for every meeting we scheduled, as well as the staging date itself. The initial walk through was not only a time for them to evaluate our home, but it proved to be an immensely informative session where information was shared down to the last details of their operation. Every question we posed was answered succinctly and left no stones unturned. Julie and Carol Ann replied to every text we sent almost immediately! It was as though they were in our kitchen with us having a cup of tea! And the decor!!! You could tell they knew the color schemes of our walls, furniture and flooring! Perfect matches and coordination down to the tiniest of details! They transformed our home into a beautiful showcase that gave us pause ( if even for a moment!) to choose, perhaps, to stay right where we were living! We felt as though we had two, new, best friends at the final goodbye after our home was completely staged. They came with confidence and left with a smile! They dutifully cleaned up after all things were in place. AND we got to meet their moms! We love Maxine and Mary! Thank you, girls, for everything! You are a class act – the BEST of the best!” – Home sold within 2 days for asking price!
