STAGING CONSULTATION (Step 1)
It is important to remember that staging a house is a fine balance between clearing away all personal belongings so other people can picture their own stuff there, while not clearing away all personality that makes the house feel like a home.
It is a thin line to walk, and we are tightrope walkers.
During our 1.5-hour initial consultation, I will show you what needs to be packed away before we stage, and what I would love to use for the staging from what you already own. During this time we will discuss:
- space planning for furniture
- visual flow
- focal point emphasis
- Decor and artwork review
- Up to 2 hour ‘walk & talk’
- Staging checklist (broken down by room)
- Customized recommendation report
Note: I do not take a hands-on approach during the consultation. I will leave you with an action-list of what furniture needs to be moved or removed, and what items should be packed away before I return for staging on photo day.
It’s photo day!
I return to your home 3 hours prior to the scheduled photoshoot (after the cleaners) and spend ~2 hours staging and styling your home. I utilize your existing furniture and decor, supplemented with my own rental artwork, decor, and accessories to create a show-home feel for your home, targeted to your ideal buyer.
- Hanging artwork
- Rearranging small furniture
- Magazine-quality styling for vignettes
- Making beds and steaming linens and drapery
- Customized Staging Plan
- 2 bins of decor/accessories and artwork
- Deliver, setup, and style rental decor, artwork, and lighting, along with homeowners’ furnishings and accessories for each room.
- Access to additional rentals as needed (area rugs, small furniture, throw pillows, throw blankets) at an additional cost
- First 30 days of rentals (additional months charged as needed)
- De-staging after conditions lifted
TOTAL COST: $649
*Additional hours charged at $80/hr
*Additional rentals quoted and invoiced prior to staging
*Additional months of rental renewal at $225 per month for included bins and artwork. Additional rentals not included.
PLEASE NOTE: Some homes may require more time and additional rentals than what is covered in this scope. If your home is larger than 3000 square feet, if I feel I will not be able to properly stage your home in the allotted 2 hours, if you’d like for me to help you pack away your belongings, or if I need to bring in additional rentals such as area rugs, small furniture, or soft furnishings, I will address this during the consultation and follow up with a custom quote and new timeline for staging and destage (as I may need multiple days).

Please note: Occupied stages are done in 2 visits. You must first book a staging consultation, which you can do so through one of the two buttons below. After the staging consultation is complete, I will work with the realtor to choose the staging date. Staging is completed after the cleaners, usually on the same day as the photographer, at least 3 hours in advance. The consultation and staging date must be at least 24 hours apart, so please keep that in mind when booking.
*some exceptions apply. Please message me before booking if you need a shorter timeline to check on availability.
