St Augustine, St Johns County Real Estate & Home Staging


UPDATE... Can small changes make a big difference... YES! What the agent told me today.

This is an update on the blog - Can small changes make a big difference? You decide.... .  We staged that home on Wednesday afternoon (2 1/2 days ago) This morning I received some great news from the agent....

Since the Fieldstone staging and updating photos on MLS, we have 3 new showings and one 2nd showing! Keeping my fingers crossed.

Old MLS photo (before) and then the new MLS photo (after)



Staging can make a difference.  Small changes can make the difference!  Great photos mean more showings.... More showings = better odds of selling!  Let us show you how staging can make a difference in your listing business!

The room looks wonderful.  It's amazing what staging does to a room.

Melissa - you have the Midas touch- everything First Impression touches turns to SOLD!

Cassie - Thanks so much!  I really enjoy showing how simple things can lead to more money.... I wish more agents/sellers would catch on!

Amy - This is why the statistics prove true.  Improved appearance (condition) increases showings, which increases the odds of a sale..... and it all starts with small changes!

Jason - Thank you! 

Marci - I like that, can I use it?  After all, it doesn't matter what you charge, what the staging looks like (OK, that does matter)... what matters the most - what will get you repeat clients.... the final numbers!  Can you show that you made a real difference in procuring the sale, or increasing the value....... but then I know you know that already!
