Writing this review gives me a lot of pleasure. I rarely share my opinions, and only do so when I feel very strongly about the subject. Our house had been re-done from top to bottom, and looked great. But it lacked the warmth and coziness when empty. We decided to stage it to give it a little “umph”. We shot for the best during the remodel, and we naturally wanted perfection when it came to staging. Amy and Katie exceeded that goal! In fact, we were absolutely floored during the reveal. After that we also decided to hire the photographer Amy recommended, James Meyer Photography. I just could not stop looking at pictures and the video! The first open house brought comments that were beyond “Wow”, but more like “We have never seen anything like this before”. In fact, the mildest comment was “this is the best house we have seen so far”. Amy and Katie completely nailed the color scheme and the spaces. And it is obvious that the entire design has one uniform vision for the house and it not only completely matches the house, it adds so much more to it. Everything is pulled together and flows organically from room to room. It is obvious they like their job, and we truly love their work!
They were incredible to work with from the very first call. Within 24 hours of our call, they were in our home accessing the situation and providing creative guidance. Within a week our home went from dull and blah to warm and welcoming. And it was a collaboration with us, not us being told there was only one way. They were able to give us a million dollar look on a very tight budget. The feedback before and after staging was dramatically better. One prospective buyer even asked if they could buy the home as staged! We enjoyed working with them so much, we have them helping us update and guide us in the remodel of the home we purchased. You couldn’t ask for anyone better or easier to work with!
My sellers were a bit apprehensive at the beginning about staging their home with regard to taking down window treatments, removing and changing furniture, etc. Their home had been meticulously maintained but the décor was from 20 years ago and needed a boost of modern to appeal to today’s buyer. Amy and Katie provided just that. They have a wonderful way of mixing in just enough ‘new’ to create a totally new and inviting environment in each and every room or space they touched. The result was spectacular and the sellers were overjoyed at the results, as am I as a Realtor. I will definitely use Becoming Home again in the future and have already recommended them to other clients and agents as well.
Amy and Katie were terrific at what they do. I did research with other companies that provide this service. None of them gave me the personal attention needed to find out exactly what I was after. They nailed it!! I was hoping it would be purchased by a family with children. They took this desire to heart and set the home up with modern furniture that encouraged a younger person’s taste. They used the furniture I had as well as supply what made a complete look to the living area and master bedroom and full bath. I could not have asked for better service. They came to take furniture back in our 10” snow storm to accommodate my situation. They came as a service but acted as a friend throughout the contract. I highly recommend their service.
I had the pleasure of working with Amy and Katie just recently to stage my home for selling. They had great ideas, exceptional taste in decor, and they worked with most of my own furniture. Their new accessories helped update my home to be more appealing to what I would call “a younger buyer”. They gave me ideas on what to do to update without a major renovation! I would definitely recommend this mother/ daughter team. My home looks lovely and I’m proud to show it .
I hired Becoming Home on the recommendation of a realtor. I am preparing to sell my home and want a sophisticated palate to attract buyers. My realtor has had several homes sell quickly after using the Becoming Home team so I was excited to have a color consultation. I was amazed at the hundreds of large-sized painted color samples that they provided and we went room to room in my house choosing the best wall and trim color combinations for a cohesive look. They were very thorough and took a lot a time with me. A real value for all the time and knowledge! I feel that my home is well prepared to show potential buyers and the investment in hiring the Becoming Home team is going to be a huge benefit in my home sale. Can’t thank them enough!
Katie and Amy did such a wonderful job of staging the home for my client. They really went above and beyond my expectations. Even went shopping and bought custom items to make sure the home was perfect! They even cleaned up after contractors had been in there and had failed to do so themselves. I would use them again and refer them to anyone. They get an A+ from me and I’m not easy to please!
The Becoming Home team edited the furnishings that were in my home, re-arranged the furniture to make the rooms more appealing and spacious, and brought in additional items that the home needed to look its best. After Becoming Home’s amazing transformation into what my realtor proudly proclaimed as a “model home,” we had around 20 showings in just two weeks! Because of Becoming Home’s work, our realtor agreed to list our home for sale $10-15,000 higher than we otherwise would have, and our home actually sold for $2,000 more than its listing price at the time we accepted our offer.
We closed on our home a few days ago and I feel confident that the staging performed by Becoming Home greatly contributed to the success of our sale. Not only was the staging itself excellent, but Amy and Katie were great to work with. They were both personable and professional, gave good advice, and were very accommodating to our needs. I would definitely recommend Becoming Home to anyone.
My sellers had moved on to their new home and were in desperate need of an offer. Although their home was beautiful it needed a little help highlighting all of it’s charm. Katie and Amy came to the rescue, swooped in and made the home sparkle! Shortly after they worked their magic, showings picked up and we received a quick offer. I am firm believer in the work that they do and look forward to working with Becoming Home again soon!
The Becoming Home team is great! They were extremely flexible - meeting me on lunch breaks at the last minute and making sure that we had time to repaint and still get the house staged in time for an open house. The house looked fantastic and the price was very reasonable compared to other staging. Immediately after staging and new photos we started getting at least 3 times the showings and within 5 weeks had an offer on our home during the off season! We couldn’t be more thrilled or thankful for everything they did to help. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
Wonderful ladies with incredible talent. They staged the home I had listed, which sat for 2 months on the market. Once it was staged so beautifully, we got an offer and closed in 30 days! Not overstated just perfectly appropriate and on point. Highly recommend Becoming Home!
Our home was fairly updated and showed decently but Amy did an incredible job giving it a warmth and elegance that had been lacking. Sometimes it was something as simple as moving a sofa or adding a few pillows but the effect was remarkable. The house just looks so much better! Amy was mindful of our budget and made sure to incorporate as much as possible from what we already had. I wanted to buy the decorative accessories she needed so we spent a morning shopping together. What fun! Not only does Amy have a great eye but she’s a blast to hang out with as well. I highly recommend Becoming Home.
Amazing job, highly recommended. Amy took ownership over this project and and transformed an empty space into a luxury condo. We could not be happier with the results!
I can’t say enough good things about Amy and the staging team. I was selling my house for sale by owner and I wanted someone who would care about my house as much as I did and take a personal interest in making it look as great as it could. Amy went above and beyond what I expected from a staging engagement. She helped me pick out carpet and lighting fixtures and we communicated frequently as I got the house ready for sale and staging.When Amy thought that she didn’t have just the right dining room set for my house she went out and bought it new. I know that because she enlisted her husband to put it all together in my garage the night before the official staging.After the staging my house, it looked better than it ever had. After three days on the market it sold for $14,000 over asking price and I’m confident the staging (and overall advice) Amy provided contributed to that success.
Hiring Becoming Home was easily one of the best decisions we made selling our first house. They worked with our budget and helped stage in a way that was not only appealing to buyers, but also enhanced the unique, historic qualities our home had. Our house was on the market for only a week and sold above asking price, and I am confident Amy & Katie’s staging work was a big help in that. Highly recommend!
