My house sold within 30 days of staging! This beautiful nearly new 3 bedroom, 2 bath home had been on the market for 3 months with nary a nibble. Priced right, it just didn't show well – the split floor plan was hard for buyers to visualize living in, and the stark whiteness of the walls and carpeting was cold and uninviting.
I talked to Jeanne and was immediately impressed with her professionalism, her willingness to work within my budget and to promptly schedule time to see the house and create a proposal.
As promised, her proposal arrived in my e-mail box along with photos that she used to recommend a series of other suggestions intended to enhance the appeal of the house. These were above and beyond the staging recommendation. What's more, she structured the proposal and recommendations in such a way that I could pick and choose the rooms to be staged, allowing me maximum flexibility.
Not only did I hire her immediately, but I acted on every one of the recommendations she made, along with her suggestions for vendors to do the work. The suggestions were spot on and the recommendations for vendors worked out perfectly. The entire experience was smooth from start to finish. No sooner was the house staged and new pictures uploaded to the listing, than the house began to see more activity and an offer came in about 3 weeks later.
Jeanne was perfectly wonderful to work with – professional, responsive, proactive, accommodating and cordial. There's no doubt in my mind – her staging and suggestions got my house sold!

Jeanne Warner helped me sell my house. I am very impressed with her first class service and recommendations regarding staging. She went the extra mile to work with my Landscaper to insure the exterior of the house was as appealing as the interior. All this was done without me as I live 3,000 miles away. If you are looking into using a staging service, Jeanne Warner's service is the one to use. Feel free to call me directly if you would like more detailed information.

On behalf of RE/MAX Tampa Bay Infinity Group, I am more than happy to pen a recommendation & testimonial on Jeanne Warner’s behalf! Short & sweet....her professionalism (returning phone calls, punctuality, seemingly ALWAYS available for us when we need her!) are beyond reproach! Second, her demeanor and skills with the homeowner/client are simply amazing! Last, and maybe most important, her skills as a designer and stager are phenomenal! The way Jeanne has transformed each and every home with her knowledge & touch has certainly helped us to present each of our listings head & shoulders above the competition, which is resulting in quicker sales for us! Without reservation we will continue to highly recommend Jeanne & refer her services!

On cursory evaluation of the successes we have had in marketing this property, in our opinion the single greatest success we had was the recommendation by Nancy to consider staging the home with Staged by Design. Jeanne at Staged by Design, came to the property and completely and immediately understood the concerns that had been voiced by potential buyers. Jeanne exceeded our expectations by addressing all concerns, and creating substantial visual excitement in what was otherwise a very "Vanilla" space. Our opinion of the superior quality of Jeanne's work, and the dramatic difference the staging made to how the home "showed" was echoed by the reaction of the Realtors from both your offices, and the offices of other Realtors in the Apollo Beach area. Traffic at the home increased dramatically after the Staging was completed. Mary Berquist. (Seller)
It looks fabulous! I can't believe it's the same house. You did awesome!
Thank you so much for staging it so beautifully. You really made our home into a model home making each room shine and at the same time disguising the negatives (like the missing cabinets in the kitchen next to the sink.) I'm convinced that my home will definitely stand-out from the rest in the community! EJ Kim. (Seller)
The staging looks fabulous and I like some of your pictures better than those we took. I’m confident that your efforts will result in a much quicker sale and appreciate your hard work and good taste!
