Real Estate Staging Professional Lorraine Mutsch, assists homeowners in decorating their property to sell quickly and for top dollar.
Lorraine makes recommendations that will broaden the property’s appeal to the maximum number of potential buyers and stand out from the competition. Her recommendations will always reflect the market price of the home, the client’s budget and the amount of time available to make changes.
Extensive background in home furnishings merchandising set the stage for Lorraine
Lorraine developed a keen eye for how color, texture, form and scale work together to create a comfortable, inviting home during her extensive career in home furnishings merchandising. She understands that in order for someone to commit to a buying decision, an emotional connection has to be made.
“Merchandising a retail home furnishings environment and merchandising a property for sale are very similar,” says Lorraine. “The goal is to make the buyer fall in love with what they see, and to say ‘I feel comfortable here.’”
