Testimonials

“Working with Kara woods and her staff to stage our house was a professional, efficient and easy process with beautiful, effective results. We sold our house quickly and smoothly as a result of the expert staging and clean, uncluttered result that photographed exquisitely. I cannot say enough about her intelligent approach, thorough coordination of all details and ability to quickly complete the staging process with minimal involvement from us. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details about our most positive experience.”

“I was referred to use “Stage to Move” by our broker to stage our place before we listed our house for sale. We were in a hurry to sell as we were relocating for a job. Kara was extremely professional and polite. She had wonderful, simple and useful suggestions. Her recommendations to add things, remove things and rearrange areas were extremely useful. Everyone that visited our place after we staged the house complimented the changes and remarked on what a dramatic difference they made. (Upon Kara’s recommendation, we essentially re-used our own things in different ways and made minimal investments in accessories). Kara’s suggestions were so useful that after we “staged” our house, our realtor recommended that we list our house $25,000 higher than she had originally advised. Now, to really stress how important it is to use Stage To Move. The day after we listed our home, we had 40 people show up to our broker’s open and another 40 during our first open house (4 days after it was listed). The pictures of the house after it was staged drew in so much traffic! (and this was during the cold of winter!) We received 2 offers after 2 days of listing the house and an additional 2 after the public open house! That’s what you call results! A lot of the credit goes to Kara and her suggestions. Her staging made a world of difference. She knows what she’s doing and she produces results! What more can a person who wants to sell ask for? Worth every penny, and some!”

“Our realtor recommended Kara Woods and Stage to Move as we were preparing to list our house for sale.  We got a thorough initial consultation with excellent suggestions.  After reaching agreement on a plan, Kara then arranged all aspects of the staging process–moving out clutter, rearranging furniture, and moving in various furniture pieces and accessories from a furniture rental service.  This is truly a “turnkey” operation–we did not have to do much.  We’ll see how the market reacts, but the place certainly looks a lot better.”

Kara Woods at Stage to Move has staged seven houses for me including my own house.  All seven of them received offers or sold within 30 days. One of them had been on the market for several years before Kara came in. Staging works and Kara is very good at it and great to work with.

I’ve worked with Kara Woods on several design projects in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. While Kara is an amazing stager/designer she is also a true inspiration in the design world. Her professionalism and work ethic are true attributes in her staging business. I look forward to working with Kara on future lease/design jobs and recommending her to future Interim Furnishings clients.
