Sensible Staging & Redesign is a company I started with the average consumer in mind. Over the years I have owned many properties and have had the joy of making them "home" by adding my own personal touches. Typically, the most difficult part is finding where to begin and more importantly, how to do it economically.
Most pertinent to your business are my home staging services. I can improve a property's appeal to the mass market by depersonalizing, decluttering, cleaning and improving its general condition so it is ready for sale in the real estate marketplace. You know the facts; a staged home will sell quicker and generally sell for more than a non-staged home.
I have full business insurance and accept all major credit cards.
I look forward to the prospect of doing business with you and your clients.

We will perform a walk-thru with the seller and/or Realtor to discuss goals and expectations and what should be done in order for your home to show better and sell faster! I will transform your house into a buyer's dream while working within your budget requirements. In order to get potential buyers inside your home, you need to appeal to them from the outside as well. We can tweak the exterior of your home so that it draws buyers inside.
