Testimonials

  • Shirin is, hands-down, the best in the business. No one else even comes close. Her designs, attention to detail, creativity and flexibility make her a sought-after professional. BOOK HER EARLY – because we try to take up as much of her time as we can. She is able to take your initial vision and run with it – improve it – embellish it – and make it ten times better than what you thought it could be. She has a holistic approach to color and materials that is truly unique and her ability to blend old and new gives every project a livable and custom feel. Definitely NOT cookie-cutter like so many other stagers! Nothing is too stark or too frumpy with Shirin’s designs – and she utilizes space, flow and form with scientific precision. Every detail makes sense and each design is stunning. Green Canopy Homes can not say enough and will continue to use Shirin for every project possible! Any builder, agent or homeowner would do well in hiring her and her team at Seattle Staged to Sell.

  • I want to thank you again for doing such a fantastic job of decorating the house today! I so appreciate all the thoughtful decisions you made; the result is a home that really looks warm and inviting and I’m certain will be admired by everyone who sees it. Your advice to let go was very sound. To decorate an entire house in a single day seems nothing short of miraculous! My heartfelt thanks, Shirin – it has been a pleasure working with you.

  • Lots of compliments from agents at the broker’s open today (and buyers Sunday) about your staging. I directed them all to your cards and told them to take a postcard too! I think the best compliment was “It is done SO well, it doesn’t even look staged!” Now that’s saying something. Not overdone, just right!

  • When I went to sell my house, I didn’t even consider using a stager. My listing agent, Lisa Tunure, said “why don’t we just have her come by and take a look at your home, who knows, you might learn something”. Shirin came into the house and instantly I could see she “got it”. She was able to create spaces in the home to help a Buyer envision living there in ways I simply didn’t see. She transformed areas that we had not utilized into extremely inviting rooms. She blended our things with her things in a very seamless way. I did learn something, hire Shirin when you want your home to sell.

  • What a beautiful job you did staging my new listing. The bookshelves are immaculate, the seller’s original photography placement ties in perfectly with her extensive rock collection, and what an ultra cool teen girl bedroom. I predict it will fly off the shelf in Shirin fashion.

    - Kris Murphy, John L. Scott (partial staging)
  • When we decided to sell our small Craftsman home on the market our realtor suggested we consider staging the home with Seattle Staged to Sell. He felt this company would be able to create an atmosphere in our home that would highlight it’s unique features. We then talked with Shirin, and followed her instructions to prep the house before she staged it to a ‘T’; she and her team did the rest. Our home was on the market for 27 hours before we got a full offer. We highly recommend Shirin Sarikhani and her team at Seattle Staged to Sell. They made all the difference.

  •  Shirin, a professional with years of design experience, was able to ascertain exactly what my house needed to look better. She could pinpoint anything that would bother a potential buyer and tell me what was missing. I followed all her advice and the change was amazing. My agent said it looked like a different house. When our house went on the market, we had multiple offers within 48 hours – in this terrible market! Some people may have doubts about whether home stagers are worth the money, but I would argue that Shirin is worth every penny and more. It was a great pleasure working with her and I would not hesitate to recommend her. In fact, I already have recommended Shirin to all my friends.

  • We absolutely LOVE what you have done with our home. I just wish you could have come in and staged it when we were living there since you made much better use of the space!.

  • I have worked with Shirin Sarikhani of Seattle Staged To Sell many times in the past few years.  Shirin is an excellent stager and the first person I call when I have a seller that is in need of a complete home staging or a redesign using their current furnishings.

    Shirin knows so much about staging and also has a keen eye for what will be needed to make the home appeal to a particular buyer for a home. She is professional, thorough, and a whole lot of fun.  I have many choices when it comes to home staging companies, but Shirin is the only number I have in my phone. There is a good reason for this… she is simply the best.

  • Thanks for the staging. We are amazed every time we go back to the house how nice it looks. Certainly a major aid in selling!!

    - Larry Cochrane
  • Seattle Staged To Sell made it possible for us to sell our home faster than we could have ever imagined. My partner and I have design backgrounds and a high bar when it comes to quality and trusting other creatives to work on our home. We struck gold with Shirin. Besides being a genuinely wonderful person, Shirin is an impressive and sensitive design talent who connects with a home, targets the perfect audience of buyers, and through her unique staging, takes the home to the next level in terms of comfort, space, elegance and class. She respects the home’s architectural strengths and balances them with color, texture and her impeccable sense of style. Her completed homes look magazine-worthy and they show equally well in photos, video and in person which is no easy feat. I would highly recommend Seattle Staged to Sell to all of our friends and family. You won’t be disappointed with Shirin and her team and you won’t regret making the decision to stage your home.

  • Great work!  Perfect understated sophistication.  Thanks for making us look so good.

    - Sam Lai, Green Canopy Homes, V.P.
  • Shirin did a wonderful job staging our home. She highlighted the best parts of our home and created a warm and inviting home with each room and area flowing into the next. Our home was transformed through her blending of our existing furniture with the items and accessories she added. We are sure Shirin’s work is a big reason our home sold the first weekend it was on the market. The best part of the whole selling process was working with Shirin and her team. We highly recommend Shirin & Seattle Staged to Sell.

    - Joe and Barbara
  • I have had the pleasure of working with Shirin for over a year now and have been thrilled with her capabilities and professionalism. I like to say that Shirin defines the difference between a good stager and an amazing one! On multiple occasions I have had situations where spaces in a vacant or poorly staged home baffle a buyer, yet when Shirin stages them they often sell within days. I cannot say enough about how fortunate my clients are to work with a stager as talented and responsive as Shirin Sarikhani!

    - Lisa Turnure, Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Bain
  • Shirin did a fantastic job staging our house for sale. She was very sensitive to our needs, which included our living in the house while it was staged, keeping the disruption to a minimum for our young son, and working on a budget. Shirin has a terrific sense of style and presentation, and she transformed our home into a welcoming and elegant showpiece for prospective buyers. She and her team are top-notch professionals and delightful to work with. We would recommend them to anyone.
