About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have been staging homes in the Des Moines area for more than 5 years. My Home Staging certification, expertise and experience has resulted in successfully selling literally hundreds of homes for real estate agents, homeowners, and builders. I have great relationships with my clients and am very proud that most of my work comes from recommendations from past clients.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My favorite part of home staging is that every home and every home owner is different. Their situation is different, the home layout is different, the challenges are different so it never gets boring. There is always something you can do to help a home show better. I also love getting the excited phone call or e-mail that the home has sold!

    As a real estate professional I could not be more impressed with Andriano Homes. Kristi provides an outstanding value to my clients selling homes. The reports provided offer amazing insight on simple ways to make the property appeal to potential buyers. Andriano Homes has my highest recommendation.

    Kristi was the stager for our home. Initially, I was sort of skeptical about the need for this. I was really nervous about how much time and work it would take and I also thought I would have to spend a lot of money to make my home ready for showing. Kristi was wonderful! She put me at ease immediately. She went through each room and very quickly told me what I needed to do to make my home look attractive and organized. Her recommendations were simple and affordable. She gave the kids tips for their rooms which helped motivate them to help out. I strongly encourage sellers to have a stager. I believe this truly helped sell my home quickly. Kristi is very skilled and personable, I strongly recommend her for the job!

What types of customers have you worked with?
My most common jobs are Written Home Staging Consultations. This is when I go through the home giving recommedations for each room as well as ideas to increase curb appeal. These recommendations are then put in a report form broken down room by room. I also furnish many vacant homes, focusing on the most important selling areas of the home. This is common for new construction or if a seller has already moved out. Homes typically show much better with furnishings.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When looking for a Home Stager it is important to ask about training, experience, and what is included in their pricing.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Home Staging is not just "decorating", it is making your home universally appealing to buyers in your market. If your home is too contemporary or too country or too minimal you lose out on a large number of buyers. Your home should definitely have personality but too strong a personality puts buyers off.
