            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.

            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.

            Deb Goode is a great home stager that has an eye to make homes beautiful. I am a vendor of Deb and she invited me to help her stage a home a few months back, so that I could learn the industry a little better. What a great experience and I really appreciate her opening up her business to me and educating Project Map It about the ins and outs of home staging. I can honestly say I met a life long friend in Deb and I couldn't be happier. So if you are an agent in Anne Arundel County looking to team up with a reputable home stager, I highly recommend Deb. She will not disappoint you. With Deb, you get a kind, reliable and great collaborator, everything a realtor is looking for. Thanks Deb for all you have done for me and Project Map It!
