“Setting the Stage”

Cloisters on the Bay "After"

I am a steadfast fan of staging an empty home when it’s for sale.  Why? Because the difference between a “house” and a “home” is invaluable, especially in Miami’s very competitive, fast-moving real estate market.  A home with artwork, floral arrangements, beautiful  furnishings and accessories, and area rugs will engage Buyers – more so than a blank palette.  The collaboration of a gifted ‘stager’, knowledgeable realtor, and motivated Seller will render the highest and best sale in the shortest amount of time.


Recently, I had the ever so talented Jenny McCloskey stage homes that I had for sale in Cloisters on the Bay in Coconut Grove (3471 Main Highway), and another in Coral Gables.  Both homes looked magnificent when completed and both sold shortly after being staged (and the Buyers asked if they could purchase some of the interior decorations!).

I am so excited to have another gorgeous home for sale that we will be staging next week!  5030 Davis Road (SW 80th Street) will get that touch of the magic wand that Jenny waves…wait till you see the “before” and  “after” pictures!  Casa Iluminada has attracted a lot of attention with it’s magnificent walls of glass, European kitchen,, Brazilian walnut floors, and amazing finishes.  Stay tuned for the finale!
