In today’s market every advantage is needed if you want to stand out from the competition and sell your listing as quickly as possible. I was extremely pleased with the staging job done by Jo Ann and Yolanda on my vacant house listing. They brought in a style of furniture and accessories that highlighted the homes best features and updated an otherwise dated house. The outcome exceeded my expectations and the house showed beautifully to potential buyers. I found them a pleasure to work with and their rates affordable. Thanks Jo Ann and Yolanda, you are true artists in what you do!

This vacant listing was on the market more than 160 days with another Realtor but didn’t sell. In less than a month we had several offers and a contract in place. Staging made all the difference. Time and again potential buyers and agents commented that they immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. Jo Ann and Yolanda’s selection and placement of furnishings is what made that happen.

It was a pleasure working with two skilled stagers who were prompt, professional and pleasant. The unexpected bonus of them periodically coming through the home to freshen it up was greatly appreciated. They provide a valuable and affordable component to our marketing efforts and I look forward to working with them again soon.

Our thanks to Jo Ann and Yolanda, for your amazing staging expertise and gentleness in guiding us through the process of preparing to sell our home of 18 years. After you helped us eliminate clutter, delete and rearrange our furniture and personal items, we wondered why we had not done this years ago! The best part is that our home is still welcoming and “liveable” for us, while still showing beautifully to prospective buyers.

We’ll definitely be using your services in the future when we move into our new home.

~Thank you,
Tom and Phyllis


This listing that had been on and off the market two years went into escrow 25 days after it was staged by Jo Ann and Yolanda. In this market, that’s fantastic! My clients were both delighted and amazed with the changes. Jo Ann and Yolanda’s professional touches and added staging furnishings brought an updated look to the homeowners existing furnishings. Their creative placement of furniture highlighted all the square footage this property had to offer. Just as important was the care and emotional support Yolanda and Jo Ann gave my clients during the process. Thank you both for an excellent job. I know you went above and beyond on this one and I appreciate it.

Jo Ann and Yolanda showed a lot of style and creative uses of our clients existing furnishings. Once they added their updated accessories this drab and dingy house, that had been on the market several months with little interest, went into escrow in about TWO WEEKS. That’s as good as it gets! Jo Ann and Yolanda was pleasant and upbeat to work with and their fees very reasonable. We will certainly be using them again.

I wanted to take a moment to commend you and your partner, Yolanda for your staging effort at my listing on Graham Hill Road. The property was on the market 111 days. The home owner had nice furnishings and we felt the property showed very well but hadn’t yet sold in this slower market. We received an offer two days after you did your “magic”. Thank you for reworking her furnishings into a fresh, new look! It is wonderful to have a company that can do this type of work without having to rent furniture month to month. My client is very pleased and again thank you!!!

After sitting on the market almost two years and in the middle of winter, the staging by Jo Ann and Yolanda propelled my client’s home into escrow in about 30 DAYS! Their creative use of existing furnishings, along with added staging accessories, gave the home an updated, fresh look. It really opened up the space and the house showed beautifully. Both the homeowners and I found Jo Ann and Yolanda professional, efficient and wonderful to work with. I am thankful for the tremendous difference they made in a challenging market. I’m a true believer and can’t wait for them to stage my next listing.
