            958 Deer Creed Run, Arnold, MD

            Deb Goode is as good as it gets! I engaged Deb's services to stage our home after trying unsuccessfully to sell it on our own. She and her crew did a spectacular job with quick set up at a reasonable cost and a contract was received shortly thereafter. Deb's talent is evident as she turned an empty house into a welcoming retreat with beautiful furniture and accessories. Everyone who viewed the house, potential buyers and realtors alike, commented favorably on the furnishings and Deb's trademark style. Deb is highly professional yet caring and responsive with sound advice on what works. I recommend A Good Start Decorating and Home Staging without any reservation. You will not be disappointed!

            I am a long tenured realtor and have dealt with many home staging companies throughout the years. I have had more than one bring my sellers to tears. From the beginning, Deb Goode is prompt and professional. She is firm when she needs to be but always considerate of my clients feelings. I continue to recommend Deb because I have a fantastic experience with her over and over again. She has a full service approach that really works! She can do anything from a small suggestion list using my clients own items to filling an empty listing with magnificent furnishings and accessories. Deb will help tell a story to a potential buyer that otherwise has a hard time visualizing living there. She is absolutely worth the investment. Deb and her team are so easy to work with and deliver stellar results. HIRE HER!
