About this pro

How does your business stand out?

As a stager, I am very passionate about helping the homeowner get the best return (ROI) on their investment, their home. I have a proven track record of selling the staged homes in under a week, at list price or higher, because of multiple offers! When your home looks like a Showstopper, everyone wants it!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like helping homeowners decorate their homes to appeal to a broad market so they get a better return on investment (ROI) and sell their homes quicker. I also like to help people update their homes to create a pleasing, warm and happy environment to live in everyday.

    This Stager Knows Her Business!
    As a Realtor, you would think I would know how to stage my own home for sale---NOT! Laura and her team were prompt, professional and very helpful. Myhome looked fabulous and SOLD quickly! I even had Laura come to my new home and give me fabric/color suggestions for my dining room. I have referred Laura to several of my clients and they have all been very pleased with the results.

    Loved working with Laura, she made it very easy to work with and had great ideas. She helped me with some decorating/ordering of items for my first place. I had a tight budget, but if I could hire her again I would!

    Thank you Shirley! My pleasure to help get your home ready for the competitive Spring market with over 100 other homes for sale in your neighborhood. Staging made it possible to stand out from the competition and get it SOLD!

    Laura is a very talented designer with a keen eye for detail. I was impressed with her ability to make my "same old" look new and updated. Throughout the process Laura offered practical solutions to my challenges and was very cost conscious with suggested improvements. The bottom line...money well spent! I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking to present their home in the BEST possible way!
    Laura G. May 2, 2017

    Thank you Janey for the kind words! I really enjoyed working with you too!

    Laura has such a fantastic grasp on how to stage a modern home! She is incredibly talented at creating a crisp and clean yet inviting feel. Anyone who wants to increase the selling ability of their home would be remiss if they did not reach out to her as soon as possible.
    Laura G. May 2, 2017

    Thank you Tom for the nice review!

  • John B. Jul 28, 2014
    She is very easy to work with and knows what sells. Laura zeroed in on the simplest, yet most effective updates to make to help my house sell quickly that I had not thought about. Now I won't be spinning my wheels figuring out what to do or wasting time making updates that won't pay off.
    Laura G. May 2, 2017

    Thank you John for the kind review! It was a pleasure to help you get your home ready for the market.

    Laura at Showstopper Staging came into my 30 year old residence and completely transformed it into a very warm and appealing home. In the middle of winter, we were surprised to get so many potential buyers to look at it, and it sold in only 3 days. Her work was quick and very forward thinking., My home looked very warm and inviting that I almost thought twice about selling it. However, several people made offers the very first day, in fact it sold for $12,100 over the list price. I could not be more happy that I had Laura use her design expertise to enable me to sell my home quickly and for so much extra money.
    Laura G. May 2, 2017

    Thank you for the wonderful review. After working on the design and renovation of the home for 6 months with you, it was one of my greatest accomplishment so far when 11 offers came in and the home SOLD for $12,100 over the list price! Thank you for trusting in me!

Consultation of editing each room and rearranging furniture, she received an offer for her home that was $100,000 over the first low offer. She was amazed!

Staging your home before listing it on the market is ideal. Your pictures will look best compared to your competition. Exciting pictures create an emotional connection with the buyer who wants to come and see your home first!

When you start a new project the first thing to consider is the budget. This is a starting point.Next is time frame. Third is when do you want to sell your home?
