STAGING YOUR HOME FOR SALE'S CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
Niall Hogan, Monkstown, South County Dublin, April 2021
Unfortunately, following on from a difficult rental period, my home was in poor repair & neither the home or garden had been maintained by the tenant, despite contractual obligations & verbal assurances. I really needed support & expertise to carry out the necessary remedial works to return it to a comfortable habitable condition. An ex-colleague of Sarah’s & a good friend of mine, suggested I reach out to Staging Your Home for Sale for assistance & I am very thankful that I did. I would have not had the resources or energy to source the tradespeople or achieve the cost savings Sarah did across the whole project. Her Project Management fee was covered very early on due to the savings made.
From the onset, I found Sarah to be professional & accommodating, readily available by phone or email. The team Sarah used are courteous & skilled tradespeople, all working very cohesively as a team, effectively project managed by Sarah. During the process, Sarah kept me informed by a live spreadsheet detailing costs & timelines, as well as meeting me onsite on numerous occasions. All deadlines were met & the quality of work carried out is excellent. Additionally, I found Sarah to be very personable & understanding of the difficult circumstances I found myself in.
I would unhesitatingly recommend Sarah’s services & while I did not actually use her Home Staging services as such, I would plan to in the future.
Sarah was referred to us by a mutual contact. We had a c.€1m property on the market that we were keen to generate greater footfall through. Having reached out, Sarah responded to our needs with proposed options, agreed a price and completed the install within days. The results were obvious, with both increased traffic online and additional footfall at showings. The house has since gone into sale contracts and we are moving onto our next project with ‘Staging Your Home for Sale’. We have also availed of maintenance and cleaning as additional services provided by the platform. Couldn’t recommend more.

Having tried to research home staging several times, but giving up, as I was overwhelmed, I found Sarah's company accidentally from an internet search. Sarah had transformed an old house with which I was familiar, and from the before and after it was clear she had a gift. I contacted Sarah and immediately was stuck by how competent, professional and straight talking she was. From the minute I interacted with Sarah I felt like I could hand over the baton in a relay race when I was starting to get very tired. Selling a house is stressful and tiring. Sarah was a fairy godmother who without instruction brought the house to a level which resulted in an offer at the asking price on the first viewing. Sarah gave great advice and was so easy to work with. The house was sale agreed about two weeks after launch. Sarah's influence was to take stress off my plate at a time when my battery was flat. I do not doubt Sarah's impact was a faster sale, at a higher price. Three parties were bidding straight away. Sarah was extremely professional, prompt and talented.
Sarah's brief was to stage a 6 bed student let for selling as a family home. She tackled the challenge with great gusto & transformed the house with her team within days ! She has a great team around her & it was all done smoothly & without fuss ! I would highly recommend her for house staging

Sarah was very professional to deal with and responsive. She has some great furnishings and is very adept at project managing required works.
Sarah did a super job staging a home for me and my client in Raheny, Dublin 5. It turned out above and beyond what I expected to be possible in that time frame and budget. It looks spectacular and the photos online are generating great interest.

Sarah staged our family home that had been rented for sometime and was dated, badly furnished, tried and drab looking. After discussing our budget and Sarah pointing out what needed to be done, I gave her a free hand and she totally transformed the house. You wouldn’t think it was the same place, my estate agent said it was the single best thing I did to improve the value of the house but also the numbers of people viewing it. Before we would have been selling it as a ‘doer upper’ now it’s a cosy, classy, family home. I had limited contact with Sarah as I have a busy job and didn’t have the time to invest in the work needed. Sarah had an eye for detail which made an enormous difference. I say leave it to the professional..if you have a house to be rented or for sale give Sarah a call I promise you that you won’t regret it! On a personal note it also helped that not only was she every professional but a wonderful lady so respectful than my mum had passed away and selling the house was difficult for me.
Sarah staged a property we are selling and we are very pleased with it. It looks fantastic and all the furniture is in prestine condition. Sarah is very professional and dealt with everything from replacing the carpets to cutting the grass to furnishing the entire house. We had a group viewing the day after it was advertised online and we received very positive feedback, staging a property for sale does make a difference!! We would highly recommend this professional company to anyone looking to stage their property.

An amazing transformation to the property after years of being a rental property and in need of serious rejuvenation. Sarah was a dream to work with-accommodating, friendly and has fantastic attention to detail
Sarah did an awesome job staging our property. The attention to detail was outstanding. I had seen examples of her work previously but was amazed at the results. The first sight of the completed project was the video presentation she organised. I honestly thought the wrong video had been sent as I didn't recognise the property. A real return on investment, we achieved 10 times the cost in the final sale.

I highly recommend Sarah's services. I initially hired Sarah for a consultation on a property I was selling, following on from which I hired her to project manage / clean (outside & inside) and stage my home. The house looked like a show house by the end and I was delighted with the value it sold for! My estate agent also commented on how well the house was presented and believed it assisted in a quick sale and higher interest than expected. Following on from such a positive experience, upon purchasing my new home, I asked Sarah to consult on interior design and furniture sourcing. She sourced me some amazing pieces that I'd never have found myself and helped make my new house a home. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough, she's professional, passionate and an expert in her field. I will continue to work with her both for interior design/furniture sourcing but also for future house sales.
I would 100% recommed Sarah's service's, she was very professional and constructive in her comments relating to preparing our house for sale. It was great to have a fresh set of eyes look at our home and suggest changes , some really obvious but had not occurred to me.her furniture and accessories really transformed our home into a lovely show home, which received a full asking price offer on its first viewing and then went on to achieve significantly more. When i move into my new home i am definitely going to use Sarah to source furniture and accessories as well as interior design advice .
Sarah is a true professional from the beginning to the end of the Staging process. Her excellent knowledge of Interiors set our home apart to show it at its best. Staging our home increased the final price significantly. Especially during Covid, good photos and videos are essential and Sarah worked seamlessly with my Estate Agent. During the process of sale, Sarah checked in with me to see how the viewers were reacting to the home and tweaked any changes that we felt would improve its appearance. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with, in what is a stressful time for any Seller. Thanks a million Sarah and I will definitely be in touch if I need to sell again.
We hired Staging Your Home For Sale to update a rental property. It was such a pleasure to work with Sarah and her team who were always on hand for friendly and professional advice. Sarah has a great sense of style and a keen eye for detail. The presentation of the property is second to none and I am delighted with the completed project. If you are thinking of staging your home, I would highly recommend getting in touch with Sarah.
