        Customer Testimonials

        8906 Winged Foot Dr, Pasadena, MD

        I never write reviews but I have to write one for Deb. We decided to sell our home and I wanted to hire a professional to help me. I found Deb on Houzz and she was excellent from the start. She came out to my home and helped on what I needed to do to prepare for the sale. She picked paint colors, carpet and what I should keep and what I needed to get rid of. She was always available even on her time off. I’m grateful for all she did for me. We sold our home in 7 days for full price. Thanks to Deb and her team. You are the Best! ♥️

        5712 Tangledwood Dr, Bethesda, MD

        She did a fantastic job and I saved thousands of dollars in commissions. The house had no bids with our agent so after the agreement expired I hired Deb.there was immediate interest and bids that increased in value until we had an agreeable price. I thought staging was a waste but I was so wrong. People apparently can’t imagine what the home looks like empty. She was so flexible and a pleasure to work with and obviously would use her in the future.

        A Goode Start Decorating is amazing!!! Deb and her team did a fantastic job staging a property we were selling and the results speak for themselves, a full price offer in less than 2 weeks on the market. They are professional, reasonable, and awesome to work with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home quickly and at top dollar. I have already lined them up to stage our next property later this month.

        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!

        1321 Generals Hwy #102, Crownsville, MD

        I have been working with Deb and team for several years and she is amazing. I can't say enough great things about her and her service. I love her suggestions on a home prep as well as her style for staging a home. I believe in her service enough that I pay for her to come out to all my sellers and do a consultation. When ever possible we also have her fully stage homes for us. It really works. Although I have the ability to virtually stage, it is just not the same. I had a property that was a perfectly fine split foyer. I had wanted the seller to do some fresh paint and to have Deb stage... they decided to hold off. I virtually staged the home and had about 70 showings but no offers. We then painted the few rooms that could use it, and had her stage. The house was sold the next week. Upshot is, she is a pro and I am grateful to have her as a referral partner. I have another settlement coming up Friday that Deb stagged.
