Simplified Lives recently helped a top real estate agent team get a house ready to sell.  The property sold in 6 days, with multiple offers, for the asking price ($2.8 million)! 

That was a big house; it worked well to have a team effort to get the house completely staged and ready for the market.  Simplified Lives does not “stock” furniture or rugs to stage entire rooms.  The realtors that we were working with have a company that they use regularly to do whole room staging (atrium rooms, modern dining rooms, and living rooms), so Simplified Lives served as a team member by making up beautiful beds with throw pillows, supplying gorgeous silk flower arrangements, accent artwork and mirrors, and wonderful accessories. In this particular house, the professional staging company staged the entire first floor, while Simplified Lives staged all of the bedrooms and the offices on the second floor, and also the family room in the basement.

Simplified Lives worked with our client for 6 months (!) to get the home ready to sell.  From the beginning of our process, we worked directly with the real estate agents to 1) help the family sort, organize, and move all the items they decided to keep 2) focused on the end goal of a date to get the house listed and a vision of how the house will be staged for the most optimal sale price.

Let us work with you to solve challenges!  We help many realtors work with families to get their homes sorted, organized, and de-cluttered.  We work with professional stagers to complement their work (or we do not have to help stage at all – we simply get the house ready for the stagers to come in and work their magic!)

We offer a free estimate and are open and ready to help you and your clients!
