Introduction: At HouseReady, my goal is to help you sell your property quickly and for the best price. I have degrees in Interior Design and Business as well as 15 years experience of successfully staging homes in the Chicago Area. I have a warehouse of up-scale, on-trend furniture, art, rugs, lamps and accessories to put the house's best foot forward on-line and as potential buyers walk through and imagine living there.

I've been a Realtor for 38 yrs. I call House Ready in whenever I'm listing a home. Colleen Waterhouse visits the home with me & gives advice to the Homeowner. As Colleen says, In Staging, one is trying to accentuate the space & architecture. Colleen comes back & we stage the home. Anything brought to stage the home that Seller doesn't want is returned. Staged homes sell faster & for more money than homes that are not staged. House Ready's Colleen Waterhouse is a 10+++ Sharon Kessel w/ Coldwell Banker - You're Special w/ Kessel :-)

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My consultation fee starts at $200. Based on the scope of the work, my staging fee varies. There is no cost or obligation for me to visit a property to strategize and give and estimate of my staging fee as well as an estimate of what it may cost for any needed staging items that the homeowner may chose to rent or buy to help the house sell quicker and for the highest price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will visit the property with a "Buyer's Eye" and analyze the property and determine how to put it's best foot forward to increase it chance of standing out from the competition. Depending on whether the homeowner is a " do it yourselfer" or if they choose to have it done by us, I will give them an estimate of the staging project. After I am hired and we go through the house with a suggested improvement list, I will prioritize the most important items based on the homeowners budget and what the client choses to do.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    BBA University of Iowa AAS Interior Design Harper College AKBD National Kitchen and Bath Association Certified
