I have teamed up with a couple of realtors in the Northern Virginia area to do some home staging. So far, the homes that I have been hired to stage have been vacant. This is typically not the case when you hire a stager. When I walk into a vacant home, I am in my element. Brad and I start hauling our stuff in and I have a ball arranging furniture, hanging curtains, making beds, placing accessories, etc. LOVE. It. Here is a home that I just finished. The realtor took me over to the house a couple of weeks ago to get an idea of what I may need. She said I didn't have to stage the entire home, but she really wanted the living room, dining room, and master bedroom done.

I bought these 3 mirrors, and I think they look great in a grouping!
- Rearrange furniture as needed
- Rid clutter
- Advise on paint colors if they are choosing to repaint
- Advise on what should be moved from the home
- Identify places in the home that need to be cleaned (e.g. baseboards, doors, walls, etc.)
Then, I will create a punch list and email it to both the realtor and seller.
