20 years ago I moved to Seattle and bought an old house that suffered from a "charmectomy". I rolled up my sleeves, opened my checkbook and undertook my first renovation project. By the time I finished, I had the home of my dreams and I found my career as a real estate agent. I've been actively involved in the Seattle market practicing real estate "by design" ever since.
"The Better it Looks...The Better it Sells" is more than just my tag line. In real estate as well as in life , you only get one chance to make a first impression. By staging my listings I have consistently been able to get top dollar for my clients in a matter of days instead of weeks or months, even in this market.
Best of all I don't charge an additional fee for staging. My buyers also benefit greatly from my design experience. Go to http://www.susanpeters.com/ for hundreds of ideas for your own home.

"The Better it Looks ... The Better it Sells"206.781.1724 direct
In the last 20 years I have remodeled, redecorated and redesigned five properties of my own in addition to staging and listing 100s of properties for my clients. Making window treatments, retrofitting light fixtures, upholstering furniture and creating custom artwork are just a few of the skills I've mastered in the process. I've taken classes in color design, Feng Shui, furniture placement, landscaping, and interior design trends. When you hire me you get the expertise of an agent, staging specialist, designer, photo stylist and a copy writer. It's like hiring a small advertising agency. I live, eat and breath real estate design.
I am the Seattle agent who stages, redecorates and re-designs every home that I put on the market, at no additional charge. My motto is "The Better it Looks ... the Better it Sells!"
