Seattle Staged to Sell welcomes our brand new general manager, Jean DeVerniero.
A few months ago, we were experiencing growing pains and it was clear we needed another experienced person in our management. Luckily, a realtor client of ours knew just the person for the job and connected us with Jean.
Jean joined our team full-time in October and has been making big changes to our company structure already. We are fortunate to have someone as talented and dedicated on our team!
When you are selling your home, staging outdoor spaces is just as important as staging indoors. Whether you are selling a condo with a small balcony or a house with a spacious yard, staging these spaces creates interest and a lot of value to your home.
We, at Seattle Staged to Sell & Design, are excited to announce that Houzz awarded us for two categories for 2017. We are honored to receive both the Best of Design and the Best of Service awards again. We are proud to have won both of these awards consecutively each year since 2013, and believe it to be a testament to our excellent service to our clients.Read more
The idea of home staging can make sellers anxious. Bringing someone new into their home to redesign it may seem like an intrusion to some home sellers who have trouble letting go. Homeowners of smaller properties wonder if staging is worth it for their home. Therefore, home sellers who have not sold a staged house before may find the prospect daunting. However, the staging fee should not be thought of as a cost, but rather as an investment.
While location is key, it does not contribute to the interior’s appeal. This condo is located in Seattle’s hip neighborhood, Capitol Hill.

In Karen Egly-Thompson’s editorial, Houzz guides home sellers on the investment of home staging. Egly-Thompson shares tips and explanations so you can get the most out of your investment:

The Queen Anne neighborhood in Seattle is a happening place and a sought after location for living.
Lumen Condo is one of the popular condominiums in the area. Since it is located close to Amazon and the B&G Foundation, we knew that our targeted buyers would be young professionals. To attract this group of buyers, we designed a hip urban modern design. We kept the walls white for a clean, fresh feel and used a blend of soft neutrals to create an air of sophistication.
This traditional home in the Denny Blaine community in Seattle is framed by gorgeous trees all around. Mesmerized by the trees, we decided to take the surrounding nature and incorporate it into our design by using different natural textures to compliment the hardwood wood flooring and trimming.
