Why should a Realtor choose me as a Seller's Stager?

I have also completed all Real Estate Appraisal Courses and I worked in the Real Estate market as a Broker for several years. This being said I understand the needs of agents in selling their listings.
I am also accredited with Staged Homes.Com in which Home Stagers recognized by the National Association of Realtors.
My goal is to help you, the Listing Agent and the Seller to sell the house! Working together we can do that!
I have a great eye for creating more space, a great eye for color, and a great eye for creating a warm and inviting house to make the buyers fall in love!
What can I do for you?
I do verbal and written consultations along with hands on.
In my consultations I start outside to the inside giving suggestions from landscaping to closets in creating more space and decluttering.
Staging furnished or vacant homes, new construction for model homes, professional and business offices.
The Better the Home looks the Faster it will Sell.
I can also help with Redesign which utilizes what one already has in their home.
Again I am here to help use the decor that you already have in your house for Staging and Redesign in order to keep your cost down.
I can help with choosing paint colors, decluttering, or just a turn-key job which will help take the stress off of you.

I'm very appreciate of all your work and time in getting my house ready for the market with your Staging! You made me and my home your focus! You took my budget, or lack of one, into account. Your energy is boundless and your passion is obvious!
I learned so much about Staging and it pleased me that 99% of the items used were from my "home store that you created ." Some of the pieces used have sentimental value because they belong to my late grandmother and that makes me smile!

I hired Martha to stage a client's home and what she did was remarkable! People that had seen the house before and again after Martha staged it, could not believe that it was the same house. Got contact right away!
Martha is highly professional and such a pleasure to work with! She is very detailed and highly knowledgeable.
I highly recommend Martha for all your staging needs. If you want to get a house sold quickly, hire Martha!"

Martha is Phenomenal!!
She arrived at our house, prepared with her friendly demeanor, staging information, and camera in hand. We expected her to give us some tips and then we would follow through on her suggestions.
We were amazed when she completely exceeded our expectations. Martha was incredibly thorough, much more attentive to detail than we could have imagined. She took her time and gave very concrete and practical suggestions.
She framed all of her comments in a way that recognized the strengths of our home and positively assessed the potential of each aspect of our house.
We love the outcome! Friends and family walk through our staged house and repeatedly mention how beautiful everything looks.
Thank you so much, Martha, for sharing your expertise!

Martha's Staging is now one of the automatic steps I take before putting any home on the market.
After taking over two listings which other agents could not sell, I had Martha stage them, made some other important adjustments, and BAM they were both gone within the first thirty days to buyers who had never looked at them before. Since then, I have been sold on Martha's golden touch!
One important thing I learned is that a beautifully decorated home is a big difference from a beautifully staged home one is great for living, but the other is great for selling!

She has a true flair for fashion and style, which makes the homes she stages breathtaking, yet tasteful. She carries her herself with class and conducts her business with extreme professionalism.
We recently placed our home on the market due to a career move to another city. During our initial meetings with our realtor, it became painfully obvious we were not prepared to place our home on the market and have it look attractive & appealing. We clearly had too much stuff. We had never utilized a stager in the past. However, we had never sold a home in a buyer's market. The process started in late January and we were not certain how to approach this monumental task.
My wife had Martha's card and decided to give her a call. They scheduled a standard 2 hour consultation and we thought we would take it from there. Martha arrived and my wife was so impressed with her ideas and enthusiasm, they ended up working for 5 hours straight. We realized we had found a gem! Her ideas, energy and professionalism made us realize that, if we followed her lead, she would transform our home into a showcase that would put us in a much better position to sell our home.
Over the next 3 weeks, Martha stayed close and monitored our progress. She offered continued insight, assistance and especially needed suggestions. She worked tirelessly to add artful elements in various locations of our home that would further enhance its appearance. As the house transformed, she was there again and again to mix pictures, floral arrangements and add accoutrements that took us to the next and final level. It literally POPPED as we came to a close with her recommendations.
As an added step to her professionalism and support, she arrived on photo day-cameras in hand. Her eye to detail is amazing and the subsequent photos were fantastic. We were now ready to place the house on the market.
Her next special touch came when she offered to assist our realtor with any open houses he might decide to do. She worked closely with our agent and they decided on an agent open house where she provided and presented a wonderful spread of food, beverages and additional artful touches to ensure our home would show its very best. The open house was a huge success!!
At the end of the day, our home was on the market less than 45 days and it was under contract the beginning of April. All the comments from the showings were incredible, home showed beautifully,nicely presented, etc. We set the initial price and never had to drop our asking price. We cannot speak highly enough of Martha's professionalism, attention to detail, personalized service and incredible taste in home design. We would not have been able to sell as quickly or meet our preferred asking price without her involvement.
We highly recommend Martha Reier for your staging needs-she is FANTASTIC! We consider her a dear friend and sincerely hope she will agree to help us decorate our next home.

I just wanted to take this opportunity thank you for all of your hard work to get our home staged. First of all, being in the customer service industry, I expect to receive quality customer service. I can honestly say that I was impressed by your prompt response with granting me an initial consultation the same day of my first telephone inquiry concerning your services. You were able to transform our home to great selling condition in a very short period of time. You spent a great deal of time making paying attention to every single detail of the home and now it looks great thanks to your help! Also, you were able to provide additional assistance by getting us set up with vendors such as carpet cleaners and someone to stretch the carpet. Now that the home is staged, you have continued to follow up to ensure that things are still running smoothly! We really appreciate your quality work and timely follow up on any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to sell their home!
