            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.

            I've worked with Deb Goode on a number of listings over there past two years, and she has been an incredible asset to all my clients. Her advice for staging with existing furniture, as well as her team's staging of vacant homes, has been critical for many of my clients when selling their homes. I highly recommend Deb for all her company's staging services!

            Deb is for real. She is an excellent decorator and at the same time knows how to help enhance the character of the house. Her staging matches the target audience of buyers for each individual house. And she sure has made my job easier, to sell the house and to do it fast. The last one sold in 5 days.
