Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence prior to going up for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to sell a home quickly, and for the most money possible by attracting the most amount of potential buyers. Staging focuses on improving a property to make it appeal to the largest amount of buyers by transforming it into a welcoming, appealing, and attractive product for sale. Staging often raises the value of a property by way of reducing the home's flaws, depersonalizing, de-cluttering, cleaning, improving condition items, and landscaping. For vacant homes, rental furniture can be used to create a living space the buyer could "see" themselves in. Properly executed staging leads the eye to attractive features while minimizing flaws.I offer a complimentary staging consultation with every listing.
I can also offer energy saving tips for buyers and sellers.

|"Thank you, Nancy. You are the most amazing realtor in the world. :)"--Calvin You helped me tremendously through the process Take care--- Judy "I knew Nancy would be professional with a special personal touch. She was very patient and very prompt to reply to my phone calls and emails. Nancy has a nice way of making you feel like you are her only client. When it came to making offers on a house, she was very thorough, crossing every "t" and dotting every "i". I had a great team - realtor, lender, title company, etc. and with Nancy's expertise, she kept me informed through the process and helped to keep the "team" working together. The "closing" was a breeze! I would highly recommend her to anyone. I hope I never have to sell and move again, but if I ever have to, you can be sure I will call Nancy!--Kim "Nancy did a fabulous job selling my home. She made the process easy from start to finish.
