Our Work

3505 Russell Thomas Way, Davidsonville, MD

A big thank to listing agent, Kristi Neidhardt, for asking A Goode Start Decorating and Home Staging to stage this beautiful, 2,500 sq/ft home on a private lot, surrounded by mature trees on all sides. It was such a pleasure staging this beautiful rancher with a 2nd floor master suite, with the most beautiful scenery, including a pool, a garden and a steam. A Goode Start is one of the top home staging companies in Davidsonville and all of Anne Arundel County, MD. We recognize the importance of a quality home staging because we know that staging a home not only helps get a property off the market quicker, but also getting the asking price or higher.


We also provide services in interior home decorating and staging of Airbnb properties. We are always looking to work with other listing agents, so if you are looking for a reputable home stager, we hope you consider giving Deb Goode a call today at 301-502-3887.

            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!
