LUXURY Professional Staging

Homes with Luxury Professional Staging repeatedly sell for top dollar. Luxury Professional Staging will transform your home into a model home and create high emotional impact with buyers so they walk in and think, "Wow!" Expert decorating with furniture and stylish accessories will be brought in by one of the bay area's best professional stagers.  


Image is everything to attract buyers to your home. My branding of your home results in it being situated above and apart from others. Branding encompasses a sophisticated, state-of-the-art property website featuring High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and videography of your staged home, HD virtual tour video, and, depending on your property and its location, twilight photography and aerial imagery via drone, and compelling, rich descriptions of the amenities of your home and area.


Eye-catching, professionally designed and printed four-page property brochures with “full color bleed” to the edges on heavy, glossy card stock, the thickness of postcards.

I am a member of Top Agent Network (“TAN”), the only real estate community for the verified top 10% of real estate agents (based on sales in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties) which markets homes that are Pre-MLS or Non-MLS. The top 10% agents share information about properties for sale before they are marketed to the general public, called “Pre-MLS,” “Coming Soon,” or “Off Market” listings. Top local agents also share the property needs of their highly motivated, pre-qualified buyers. Top local agents – and their motivated, qualified buyers – have an exclusive preview of your property before it's advertised to the public on the MLS. The result? I build a sense of exclusivity, rarity, and uniqueness around your home in a way that appeals to highly qualified and motivated buyers. I will market on TAN on the date you authorize via email as long as that date is at least three days before your home is marketed on the MLS, a TAN requirement.
