Get to Know Traci Sampsell

I am a Professional Home Stager and a graduate of the Staging Diva Program. I have been trained by Debra Gould, a Master Staging Specialist in the field of Home Staging and Color Design. Home staging is a design specialty that focuses on presenting homes for sale in such a way that visually maximizes the interior and exterior of the property and appeals to the majority of potential buyers. The result is a home that sells quickly and for maximum profit. Staged homes spend less time on the market and buyers are often willing to spend more on a home that has been staged because they feel at home there. They are willing to pay for the property to have this feeling of "home" every day.

Whether your are currently thinking about selling, living in the home that is for sale or are selling a home that is completely vacant, having your home staged will maximize your potential for sale and profit. The end result will be the WOW! Factor. The WOW! Factor will grab potential buyers at the curb and motivate them to see beyond the front door. Once inside, they will be enveloped in a warm, cozy, relaxed environment that makes them have an immediate emotional connection to the home. This emotional connection is the main goal since home buyers buy on emotion and not out of practicality. As they tour the property, they will absorb an environment that feels cozy and inviting...a feeling of home. One room will flow well into the next and the special details of the home will be highlighted with color, lighting, furniture and accessories. The end result will be a fast, profitable sale.

I understand that moving is stressful. You are in luck...I love to move and have done it 11 times in 18 years. I have it down to a science. With all of my moving experience comes a lot of knowlege and experience that I will share with you to make this stressful time of transition go smoothly for you and your family. With The Finer Stage by your side you can let the worrying up to someone else!


As your home stager, I will provide a thorough assessment of the property being sold during my initial two hour consultation. During this time you will be provided with specific ideas and instructions on how to make your home sell faster and for maximum profit.

In order to execute your plan for staging, you may need specific services. I have a multitude of contacts available to you in order to get your home looking its best. Some clients may need services such as landscaping, painting, organization of personal belongings, furniture and accessory placement, just to name a few. Whatever your service needs, you are guaranteed a detailed, customized action plan by the end of the two hour consultation. After the initial consultation, you can choose to have me complete as much or as little of the plan as you wish. 

I work fast and my goal is always to have a client's home staged and ready for sale within a two week period.  You will be provided with specific details on how to make your home show better during individual showings and open houses. After the staging is completed, I offer digital photo service.  I will take pictures of the property which I will download to a disc for you to upload to your own site on the internet or for you to present to your Realtor for use on their site. This will also increase your chances for a fast, profitable sale since more and more home buyers are shopping on the Internet.


I am President of The Finer Stage, a home staging business. My goal is to assist clients in preparing their home for a fast sale with maximum profit which may even be above the initial asking price!
