“Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence prior to going up for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to sell a home quickly, and for the most money possible by making a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers,” according to Wikipedia. According to the American Society of Staging Professionals (ASP), 93% of staged homes sell within 30 days. Here are a couple of before and after photos to give you an idea of what home staging, when well done, actually looks like.

“Sheila’s guidance in preparing our home for the market was crucial to its sale; the house was transformed, but retained our personality. She provides a combination of decorating expertise with a very sharp understanding of what will be appealing to the broadest range of buyers. Working with Sheila was a pleasure; she is both warm and funny and very briskly efficient both in terms of time and doing things economically. I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly. Her help was invaluable!”- Cathy C, former owner, Antony Road, White Plains
“Sheila Black of Home Highlighting, transformed this house in about 6 weeks! What I found initially was overwhelming – the clutter, unique paintings, dark and dreary kitchen – all transformed into a gorgeous, light and bright home tastefully decorated with cheerful uncluttered rooms. I am certain we recouped at least double the amount of money put into the house. Sheila took charge, followed up often, went shopping, used her skills to enable this house to sell very quickly at top dollar in a difficult market. What would have been on the market for 6 months sold in 2 weeks! I happily recommend Sheila to every home seller I encounter; whatever she touches turns to SOLD!” – Carolyn Schoemer, Associate Broker
