  1. thank you so much for the lovely review! I appreciate it.

    All my best, Starr

  2. This is great information. I always tell my clients that stag you home is not only good to help make it appeal to the largest pool of buyers but also a way to start saying goodbye. Selling your home is an emotional decision as well as a business decision.

    Dear Starr, A friend recommended your book, Home Staging That Works. There is a lot of great information. The ‘sofa formula’ confuses me. “The length of all the sofas added together should be not more that 2/3 the length of the room, and the length of the single longest sofa in the room (including it’s return) should be no more than 2/3 the width of the room. Your example: 12 X15 feet, can have 10 feet of sofa altogether (2/3 of 15′) but no one sofa should measure more than 8′ (2/3 of 12′) So you can have two sofas: either an 8′ sofa plus a 4′ sofa, or two 6′ sofas.”.. If you can have 10 feet of sofas altogether how can you have an 8′ sofa and a 4′ sofa..doesn’t 8+4=12 feet of sofa not 10′? Surely I am missing something somewhere. Could you clarify this for me? Thanks! Alicia

  4. Great article on home staging! First impressions always sell the home and “personalizing” the home for the potential buyer is the smartest thing you can do. Make each person that walks through that door want to live there. If they can see themselves living there you have reached your goal.
