Welcome to my Blog and Thank You!

I would like to welcome you to my staging blog and thank you for visiting. I have truly found this adventure into Home Staging an amazing experience and opportunity. Though I have been working exlusively with our team, The James Real Estate Group ( since November of last year, I am opening the doors to FSBO's (For Sale- By Owner). If you or someone you know would like a "staging consultation" please contact me at I will be happy to discuss with you the purpose of home staging and all of it's benefits. We have had a tremendous amount of success this past year in a very difficult market. With a very dedicated team and some of the best marketing strategies known to Real Estate, the James Real Estate Group will get your house sold with little or no work for you. Please browse my blog freely. Realize that the latest post are "BEFORE" photos only. This home is just getting ready to undgo renovations. Staging is the final step prior to listing a home, therefore, "AFTER" photos are still a bit ahead of us. However, I have included two slideshows of previous "stages" at the top right column of this blog. You may click on the slideshow to view photos up close. Thank you so much for taking the time to view my work. ENJOY!

West Seattle Project

Portion of un-finished basement. This will be amazing when we're done with it!
The current owner has already done some lovely updates to the kitchen. It will just need some AHS (Accredited Home Stager) touches.

This will become the kitchen nook, right now the space is not being utilized. The color will change as well.

This space is currently blue and green and will be neutralized. This space will be staged as an office.

Currently the two separate spaces are being used as one large space. I will stage these rooms separately. The room with the large TV will become a formal dining area.

I am so happy to share that the Redmond home has officially closed. Our next project is located in West Seattle. After an initial walk-through I have determined the staging plan and chosen the color schemes...this home is so great! Here is a sneak peak at some of the rooms I will be staging. Here is a sneak peak at some of the rooms prior to staging. The home is currently being lived in. The James Real Estate Group will take on a full basement remodel...can't wait to see the finished project!
