        1804 Londontowne Ct, Edgewater, MD

        This 2-story house with water views and a 1st floor master bedroom has been completely renovated! A Goode Start Decorating and Home Staging had a great time staging this home. As one of the top home staging companies in Edgewater, we pride ourselves on efficiency, a great eye for staging and a professional team. Home staging is not easy. It takes a skilled eye to know what color pallets will work, what is "in" for decor and what a house needs in order to sell quickly at top dollar. We at A Goode Start would love to team up with any agent looking for a reliable team. Just give us a call at 301-502-3887. We now offer services in staging Airbnb's as well, so if you have a space you are looking to rent out, we are here to help. A four time Best of HOUZZ recipient, we are more than qualified to take care of all of your decorating and home staging needs.

          411 Lambeth Rd, Catonsville, MD

          Deb staged two properties for our real estate team on a Wednesday and within a few days we had multiple offers on both properties. We love working with Deb and her team. I highly recommend her staging services.

          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.

          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! ♥️

          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!
