"I couldn’t have been more pleased with the job Staging Pros did for us. I’m convinced Karen’s staging brought us the “way above asking price” we received. She & her team were super professional. Paying through escrow was so convenient.

Highly recommend them!"

- mike d., realtor

"Karen and her crew at Staging Pros are the best in the business! As a real estate professional, my clients expect their property to shine when it hits the market and Staging Pros delivers every time. Not only does staging help buyers visualize themselves in the home, it also helps transform a home for photography and online advertising. Staging is an important part of the home selling process and that's why I partner with Karen every time! Thanks Staging Pros!"

- sean m., realtor

"Staging Pros is hands down the best stager out there. I have been using Karen and her professional crew for 10+ years now and have been continuously impressed with the quality and style of her staging. She is always changing out her furniture and designs, and her staging style is classy, fresh, and modern. I cringe when I see homes staged by other stagers with worn and dirty furniture. This never happens with Staging Pros. I higly recommend Staging Pros, they are the best!"
