From the first time I met Erika, I knew my staging was in good hands. As soon as she entered the space, you can tell Erika was sizing up the dimensions, light and space of my unit. I was very impressed with her initial consultation. So much so that I changed my mind about a partial staging and decided we should do a full staging with her vision in mind. My instincts did not fail me as she did a great job of creating a sense of welcoming open space in the room.

I can see that this is a unique trade. To create a space that is inviting to a broad audience, where anyone can feel the space could be theirs, is no small task. Erika used a variety of quality furniture and accessories, drawing the eye to or away certain target areas. The overall effect was completeness.

Key point: I am in contract for far over asking price so the cost of staging paid for itself many times over. Great Job!

Erika knew exactly what this listing needed to ensure a quick and easy sale. We had multiple offers within the first ten days on the market, and sold for $40,000 above the listing price with a 30 day close. Thank you Erika for the wonderful staging, for bringing out the beauty of this unique home and helping my clients sell their home so swiftly, and at such a substantial price!

I am writing to thank you for the brilliant work performed by your company, Awaken Designs for our project at 234 Cambridge Avenue, Kensington. My clients were more than pleased, the brokers and real estate agents involved with the sale were impressed, and the viewing neighbors and potential buyers all spoke well of your efforts.

The furnishings provided were well-made, comfortable for guests to use, appropriately scaled to the rooms, and beautifully coordinated with the style of the house. I was especially pleased to see that the design did not attract attention to itself, but rather played to the strongest qualities of the house.

The professionalism and integrity that you and your team exhibited were also exemplary. On time, on budget, cheerful, careful, well-communicated and efficient. What else could I have asked for? Working with Awaken Designs was a very satisfying experience, and I will not hesitate to come back to you again when I have another project to stage.

Thank you again for the fine work.

“After seeing the transformation that Awaken designs had done to our home, my wife and I regretted that we had to sell. When all was said and done with the sale of our home, we got $225,000 over our asking price, and I’m sure the look of the home that Awaken Designs created for buyers to see was a factor in getting the price we did. We would definately use them again, or recommend them highly to anyone else considering staging their home for sale.”
