As a Burlington based Stager, I am in many homes. Most clients have adapted their home to fit their lifestyle. Some adaptations are now about to come back and bite them as they prepare their home for sale. My advice, think before you make that change! You will eventually want to sell that home an...

I was showing a slide show to someone at a Realty office the other day and she couldn't believe the before photos. In fact she thought I had 'staged' them for effect. My answer .... no, they are real photos of exactly what I saw in the homes. That's the difference Staging can make in your MLS pho...

Ok, I admit it, the Bungaloft is a mystery to me. I suppose it is supposed to appeal to empty nesters or young 'professionals' without a family but personally I don't see the draw.

  There is a never ending war between the sides when it comes to family photos. If you are selling your home, all those family photos hanging on walls and sitting on surfaces are suddenly an issue for debate. Do you leave them up or remove them in an effort to depersonalize your home? As a Burli...

  I just did a consult on a home from the 1800s! You would never know from the outside that it used to be an Inn for stage coach travel. It looks very ordinary as you walk up. In fact I was trying to figure out how to give the curb appeal some oomph. Actually the coolest part of the house was th...
