Blane Charles is an incredibly talented individual who has genuine expertise in any number of real-life situations. He has helped me recruit professional high caliber wait staff for a benefit event at my Museum which saved me several hundred dollars over using an agency. Blane is an excellent organizer, feng shui expert, and first-rate motivator. His enthusiasm is infectious and professionalism first-rate. Blane takes great personal pride in his work and uses each and every opportunity as a chance to learn new skills and make new contacts whenever possible. To paraphrase Albert Einstein, Blane is "passionately curious." I have gone back to Blane for assistance and problem-solving time and time again with great results every time.

I learned of A Shoucair Design through an online referral service. At the time, I was completing renovation of a brownstone house and was feeling overwhelmed. Unequivocally, my decision to hire Peta-Gaye Shoucair was the best decision I made. She is attentive, detailed and has amazing style. Ms. Shoucair was extremely thorough in helping me to understand the scope of my project and convert it to practical steps. She makes you feel confident about the process and then delivers by producing amazing results. Even my real estate broker, who has seen many projects, commented about her excellent product choices. Peta listened to me and maintained the authenticity of my brownstone home while bringing in modern elements. Peta makes you feel as though you have a partner in the process. She utilized recent technology in measurements and renderings and arranged for showrooms to deliver samples to my home to accommodate my schedule. My project turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined and with great savings to me. Also, Ms. Shoucair’s cheery disposition was a bonus. I have worked with other designers in the past and A Shoucair Design is a cut above the rest.

The combination of her expert sense of style and extraordinary taste, and the confidence to not just execute our preconceived design ideas but rather to push us to consider options outside of our box, has made Helen a resource we have, and will continue to, come back to time and time again. Her work has been outstanding in all respects, as the results reflect. I am a real estate broker, and primarily sell apartments in the very large complex where I live. It is important that my apartment is as comfortable and inviting as possible, as I often bring clients to see it, so they can envision what they can do with the less attractive unit they might be considering. From the kitchen - now about 15 years old but looking like it was done yesterday - to the soft soffit lighting and exquisite baths Helen designed, people are taken with how much can be done and how wonderful their future home can look. On numerous occasions my clients have become Helen's clients, and have thanked me for the recommendation. When we outgrew our vacation house and became frustrated trying to find something that would better meet our needs, we decided to tear down all but the foundation and enlarge and rebuild it. We got Helen involved from the very earliest planning stages, and, working with our architect and contractors, she was instrumental in creating an award winning home. She was easy to work with, but exacting, and would not let us accept work that was only 95% perfect. Helen sourced the materials we used, from concrete counters to ceramic and stone bathroom tiles to plumbing and lighting fixtures and flooring, designed our kitchen and baths, and worked with and guided us in selecting the furnishings and accessories. Her imprint was on almost every aspect of the house, which no doubt resulted in its selection, by its readers, as the Overall Favorite in an on-line Architectural Digest competition. Helen Grubel has been a pleasure to work with, and we consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to do so. I have no hesitation giving her the highest recommendation I can.

Karen is a fantastic interior decorator and real estate stager. She has a fantastic eye for style and design and always makes each space look lovely. Ironically, many of her clients have decided to stay in their spaces after Karen has staged their homes.

We've worked with Shira, from Charles Interior on a number of jobs and are endlessly impressed by her ability to adapt to different needs, budgets and spaces. Very unique design perspectives that tend to be simplistic and complex at the same time but always look amazing in the end. A pleasure to work with in general and a huge asset specifically with real estate investment properties, turning them around into what will maximize the space and attract clientele. New on the scene but highly recommended.

I have had the pleasure of working with Steve Watson of Steve Watson Interior Designs on a number of staging projects to ready a home for the real estate market. He is very reliable and easy to work with and has the uncanny ability to make the homeowner feel comfortable with change. Steve can bring items in to facilitate the staging process but is also extremely resourceful in using items already in the home which helps keep the cost down for the seller.

As executor of my brother's estate I hired Kathryn Kavicky to stage his house for sale in a very difficult market and economy. The house was at a great disadvantage in comparison to other homes in the area. She did a great job and was able to highlight the home's great features--yet making it cozy and desirable. I also hired Kathryn to help me get our antique colonial decorated in advance of several large Christmas gatherings last year. She has an eye for flowers, draperies, table settings and general ambiance - and she did a wonderful job. I would certainly hire her to stage my own house if and when we decide to sell. Kudos to a multi-talented lady (and she's very nice to work with; organized and budget-conscious).

Wow, where do I begin.. so we met Gary back in the spring of 2013 when he renovated our house in Brooklyn. He came highly recommended by my uncle Frank (a very hard man to please), so I knew he was the right guy to hire. After doing an amazing job on that project (a major renovation with a crumbling house built in 1911) and numerous small projects, we hired his company to build us a house from scratch. Being that Gary is also a licensed real estate broker, the whole process was made easy from finding a piece of land to selling our existing house, to setting us up with a great architect (thank you Peter Calvanico) and so on. From the day we broke ground to completion (except landscaping), he had us in our new house in just under 10 weeks! I can't tell you how happy we are with the finished product, thanks to all the great design ideas Gary gave me (thank goodness because I can never make a decision.. lol). It still hasn't sunk in that this is my home.. i'm in love! Thank you Gary, Louis, Anthony, and the rest of the crew for all of your hard work! P.S. you were right about adding all of the extra trim work.. it really makes the house pop!

The beautiful art of Feng Shui can assist you with many aspects of your life that seem to be difficult or missing. Could it be the personal romantic aspects of your life? Or, the career aspects of your life? Perhaps you just need better health or more money. Feng Shui has been known through simple placement and or re-placement of furniture and adjustments of color to bring a flow of harmony and ease to almost any environment. Many people have experienced the subtle, yet powerful effects Feng Shui has brought into their lives. Working with real estate for over 6 years, I have been inside of many homes. From mansions to basement apartments, I have seen the subtle changes Feng Shui can bring. As a Feng Shui consultant, I work to balance the elements within the home to enhance and bring intention to that which concerns my client most, whether it be a new career move or improving relationships. I give one initial complimentary 30-minute consult via phone to all my clients to better understand their objectives with a Feng Shui consult and to see if this is really what they want. If so, we will then follow up with a floor plan which can be faxed or mailed over to me for suggestions. Suggestions for changes will be faxed or mailed back. Clients will be charged by MasterCard or Visa before work is returned. If it is decided that a home visit is in order, then the visit will be based upon the amount of work needed to be done. Many clients experience the difference in their affairs right away. For others it may take a while, but in overall, they do.


I have 34 years experience in distress, investment, and creative real estate deals. I've flipped well over 1500 houses. I have owned the largest metro New York foreclosure brokerage. I've also owned a mortgage bank and title company.


I spearhead the top real estate team in NJ. I love helping clients find their next home or selling their present home. With more than 35 years of experience and a professional team supporting me, no one gets better results than I do. Give me a call and let me show you what we can do for you!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.


What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.
