Home staging is the behind-the-scenes work before your home is presented to buyers and agents. It’s a spruce up that promises to highlight the best features of your house and minimize potential distractions, so that buyers of all tastes and preferences can imagine living there. 95% of home buyers begin their search browsing the web. Properly staged, your home will have the eye-catching photos needed to drive buyers to your door.


Buyers need to envision themselves living in your home. Less is always more. Often viewers of photos will be distracted by odd furniture layouts, rooms that don't convey an obvious function, taste specific artwork or bold paint colors. You want buyers to see the positive features of the house so that they will want to visit. Remember, you are selling your house, not your stuff.


Buyers look at empty rooms and see flaws in the architecture, spaces without purpose and no reference point to help them envision living there. This is particularly true on the Internet, as empty houses simply can’t photograph well.

I have happily and successfully worked with JS Home Design for many staging projects over the years.  From homes in the suburbs, to condos in the city, she can deliver what the camera and the buyers are looking for.  She has impressively transformed individual rooms and entire homes.  We do not hesitate to recommend her to sellers and know our photo tours and listing process will be far improved with her skills and decor involved!

Joan is a delight to work with.  She has the unique ability to work with large open spaces in newer construction as well as older homes that are more compartmentalized.  Her understanding size, space, color and lighting is exceptional.  One can tell she enjoys her profession.

I was very wary of having my home staged before it went on the market. Like many homeowners, I have my own personal style that I am proud of, especially when it comes to art. But Joan offered me so many choices and communicated so well with me that we immediately reached a happy understanding. After the staging, I was proud of the way my house photographed and showed once it was on the market. I got so used to the art and furnishings, I forgot they weren't mine. I thank Joan and her assistant Tiffany for helping  sell my house.

Joan has never hesitated to work the extra hour and go the extra mile to ensure that a home for sale is properly staged. On those occasions during which I am listing a house for sale, I call upon Joan to stage my open houses. With Joan's assistance and on every occasion, my homes sell faster and usually at full asking price or with multiple offers. Joan works tirelessly in her job and has always been a consistent team player in my Real Estate work.

The work you did on our house was truly amazing. Your ability to use what we had, add your stuff and de clutter was unbelievable. Your professionalism, style and taste were wonderful and truly appreciated by Steve and me. Thank you so much for all your hard work and feel free to use us as a reference.
