    Most real estate agents know the Open House routine, but I thought there were some very good ideas in here…especially those in #1!   I have recently seen a few week night open houses and I thought that was a great idea!  ...

It can’t be that hard…anybody can do that! Wait, something is missing here…was there a question to go along with this statement? Yes, it’s Home Staging. Whenever I have an opportunity to present MKW and how all of this started, I always tell people why I chose to become a Certified Professional Home Stager & Interior Redesigner. You’re probably asking why in your head right now, aren’t you? Well, I’ll tell you why I didn’t first. I didn’t do it to add a bunch of letters behind my...

Historic Lake Shore

This home has a lot of potential and a great deal of history. The older homes have a character you just don’t see in newer homes these days. Staying true to the home is important, but, for today’s buyers, you add a bit of the contemporary flair without distraction. We did that here and this home is ready for it’s new owners to care for it for many years to come!

Ready on Runnymede

Well, this home didn’t last long…even before I could post on my site, it had multiple offers. Listed on February 24th with an accepted offer by March 3rd, you can’t ask for a better situation! This 1959 home has a ton of old Ann Arbor character, warmth and town style. The new owners will be very happy here! It was a blast working with Cristie Wilson from the Charles Reinhart Co. and I look forward to working with her...

This lovely home is a story in itself! To be perfectly honest, this is my home. We decided to put it on the market this year. It’s always a tough thing to disassociate yourself from your home, but now was my turn. We worked furiously on the house to get it staged and ready to sell…this is a brief explanation on how it all went down… We decided to sell the house after the first of the year. We worked with Dana Vespremi (who is the bomb!) and listed on February 11th. We had multiple showings and interest. Dana scheduled an open...

You can accomplish a lot in just a couple hours and here is the perfect example. My “2 Hour Power Staging” was exactly what the house needed and this Dexter beauty was such a fun project! The homeowners were awesome to work with and very motivated (which is great for an occupied house). They were right beside me for the entire time we staged, took direction very well and we turned this already beautiful home into a staged masterpiece! Check it out!

This delightful home was so much fun to stage!  The homeowner was so happy how the staging turned out and was able to stop by the house personally to talk to me.  I love chatting with my clients and walking them through their staged homes.  Check this one out!

This is another Ann Arbor beauty and a personal favorite!  I knew the lovely family that lived in this home and when they moved, I got the chance to stage it.  With a great foundation, it just needed a bit of “Wow” and I think we did it! In staging, we’re always looking to create the Wow Factor!  That feeling a buyer has when they walk in the door and say, “If I buy this house, I can live like this!”  To create this we set out emotional connection points in every room, an opportunity to grab the buyer.  The...

I loved staging this home!  With it’s unique floor plan, this your opportunity to live in the heart of the Ann Arbor Hills.  This beautiful home is full of amazing updates and I just love the window walls that give you an incredible view of mature trees and fantastic landscaping.  A fabulous home for entertaining that is a must see for sure!
