Under Contract in 2 days. And, the reason – because this home was, what we now call “staged.” In 2010, before home staging was even a thing and just before I obtained my real estate license, while working as an Executive Assistant to Realtor Larry Hogan, I recognized the importance of what I considered back then, “Home Maximizing…” Getting a home ready for market.”
So, in 2005, I started my own business and called it “Before Sale” (get it?….beFORe SALE?) with a tagline of “Home Maximizing.” I was determined to help people understand the importance of preparing their home to sell and most of the time, using their own furnishings and decor. Sometimes even with minor changes and redesign. Not spending too much $, you can potentially net so much more money on what is probably most people’s biggest investment, their homes – even if its changing out a few light fixtures or painting cabinets. (Relationships eventually grew which led to my clients wanting me to then LIST their homes, which is what inspired me to become a Realtor.)
I met my match in Sherri and I am so grateful! You’ve seen our listings all over social media. We have sold several homes in just a few months working together because of our passion, strategic marketing, and home maximizing program. This home right here is a great example of staging to sell. Sherri has an affinity and passion for it, just like I do. She invested several hours in turning this home around and preparing it for market. A home is a tremendous investment. The Sellers of this property were amazing troopers and spent under $3k for a SUBSTANTIAL return on their investment.
I am over-joyed to have a partner in my business that recognizes the value of “Home Maximizing” and has a heart to pour into our clients….because selling a home is SO MUCH MORE than just listing it and paperwork. With a passion and eye for homes and people, from staging consultation to the closing table, we are thrilled, grateful, and humbled to help our community… Thank you!
