When my husband and I decided to sell our 1890s Victorian home, I knew I'd need help getting it ready. While I loved its high Victorian decor, most buyers would not be as excited about the busy, gilded, old-style interiors.  And I was far too emotionally attached to the house and everything in it to be able to make the decisions necessary to showcase the best features of the house, rather than the furniture and things we had collected. I needed help, so I sent out an SOS to Melanie.  She came in and told me what needed to be taken away, helped me rearrange furniture and decorative items, and made my home look totally different.  I won't say it was easy, but Melanie was absolutely right about everything, and she made a difficult process as painless as possible.  When the house went on the market there was a 22-month inventory of houses in our home's price range.  Our house sold in 23 days!  I give Melanie my highest recommendation. Hire her, listen to her, do what she tells you, and you will be glad you did!  Cindy Miller

“I have had the good fortune of seeing Melanie’s talent and eye for décor, where she can transform a simple home into an oasis that would make the owners want to move back in. After seeing the results at the end of a day’s work, I knew Melanie could help me during my temporary downsizing. In a few hours, Melanie had found inexpensive ways to organize my kitchen, laundry and bath room, freeing up space for many of the items I did not know where to put. She took the time to help me “lifestyle stage” the rest of the house and for the first time ever, all my art is hanging straight. !" Heather

Just a note to thank you so very much for staging our home. We were only on the market for 13 weeks and sold the house for a very good price. I'm over 70 years old and have never seen a real estate market this tough and was prepared for a very long time to find a buyer but with your expert help and advice it went fast and smooth as silk!  You're the best! Thank you so much!                                Bob and Trina Rounds

Melanie is the best! She works with sellers and REALTORS to develop staging strategies that increase the marketability without high costs. My clients like the results. I will, and have hired her again and again and again..... warmest regards, George Pilant, ABR, CRS, GRI, MBA  Associate Broker, RE/MAX Professionals  253-284-9100 (office) 253-988-6060 (Cell)

Melanie Warren has been ‘staging’ my house for the last week or so. I have been impressed by her energy & efficiency.  She has an incredible grasp of detail. Her concern for my feelings & welfare are exceptional. She has cleared out a lot of my junk without making me feel bad. I am old, tired & have poor balance, so she has done a lot of heavy lifting & protected me from my own urge to do more than I can easily do.  Also the house looks better than it has in a long time. I think I’ll buy it.

"I hired Melanie to help stage a Log Home. She had the unique background needed with log homes to help stage, brighten, and de-clutter the home, which in turn allowed for us to take great photos for marketing. We were able to sell the home in 2 weeks. The home had been listed previously with another agent. In today's market this is a great accomplishment. I would definitely recommend hiring Melanie again."

This letter comes to THANK YOU for your special service of "Staging" our home.  So many little things here and there made our quant home a welcome site!  Opening up the size, keeping it simple and easy to show at a moments notice.  A lot of ideas to use in our new home!  Mainly, just how simple and easy you made the whole process, to help one feel good that the house is showing off its best assets to welcome perspective buyers.  OUR HOUSE SOLD IN 2 DAYS! So ever thankful, David and Mimi Greene

I wanted to thank you again.  There is no doubt your staging closed the sale.  The buyers had been to the house twice before and were not sure they wanted to look again.  I told them we had it staged and they should really take a look at it.  They walked into the house and said, "Now I know how I can live here."  They made the offer the same day.  It was the staging that sold the house.  I wish I had done it sooner, I will definitely call you for my next listing.                                     Julie Vindivich (John L Scott)  253-691-4426

I wanted to thank you for providing excellent client service to our clients.  I look forward to working with you again!          Heidi Hurst, ABR  RE/MAX Professionals Tacoma, WA          253-232-5100

"We are on our way to Colorado - I can't believe it happened so fast! You were wonderful to work with!  Susie Straub (Homeowner)

Thank you so much for the respectful way you helped me understand why and how we should make the changes in our home to facilitate a sale.  Boy did it work!  Kathleen Lowe & Vic Harris (homeowners)
