Testimonials

At STAGE for $UCCESS we love what we do, and our Clients seem to Agree….

Dear Victoria and the Entire Stage for Success Team,

I would like to express my thanks for all of your creativity, professionalism and plain old hard work to get the job done ! After having my client's property previously on the market without professional staging and no successful ratification, bringing in the Stage for Success Team got it ratified and sold at full price in 11 Days ! Bravo !

Many Many Thanks,
Victor M. Zolezzi

“I thought that Victoria was fantastic and had great energy. The house sold on time and for the money we were asking. I felt that I paid a reasonable price for the work that was done. It was a very positive experience, she was very reliable and I really liked her a lot.

STAGE for $UCCESS always provides the best possible Staging while remaining sensitive to their client's budget. However, when I saw how buyers loved my Staged house, I thought that if I had it to it all over again that I would have expanded my original budget and take the Staging to an even higher level."

"Victoria follows the entire project from the beginning of the sale to the final offer… Staging from the moment she gets out of the car. She always provide a quick turnover time as well.

Just like we state at StagedHomes.com, Staged homes sell quick and for more money. Guests and Realtors alike have been very pleased and impressed with your staging abilities that have shown thru at open houses.

You are very positive with clients, you work with a level of confidence and experience with the clients, and are able to help the client understand the difference between Staging and decorating. As a result, clients trust that your recommendations will improve their investment and maximize their profits. (And they do!)"

Victoria and Bill,

I am sure Helen has filled you in on our fabulous response to her house. We received 3 good offers the weekend of our open houses (June 27 & 28th).

The buyers we selected are well qualified and we may even close early – unheard of in this market!! Needless to say – Helen is thrilled and is now getting ready to move to her apartment in San Mateo.

I wanted to personally thank you for all your time, energy, expertise and talent in getting this home on the market so effectively and timely!! I will definitely give you a call when I need staging of a property. Thanks again.

I would like to thank you for our two most recent collaborations, 810 Grenada Lane Foster City and 3405 Plateau Dr Belmont. Both properties sold substantially over asking price in a market which was patchy at best. I always believed in Staging but after seeing your work I was doubly impressed.

I also want to thank you for the diplomatic way in which you dealt with the sellers, who sometimes fail to see the value in Staging, you helped make my job so much easier as well as maximized the return for the seller.

Hi Bill, Victoria, and crew,

Thanks for a wonderful experience, with a lot of Victoria’s intuition! The house looked and showed great, and the experience has been wonderful from start to finish. I’m sure your staging concepts helped sell the house above our asking price!

I hope I have the opportunity to work with you again!

Staging your home can be an emotional experience for some us when you are asked to remove your personal belongings that makes your house a home. Even though I have a passion for decorating and was told my home would show well, I decided to hire “Stage for Success” to decorate my office before putting my home on the market.

Too my surprise, Victoria made this transition easy. By simply moving a few pieces of furniture and adding that magic touch, her simple and elegant taste transformed my home into a show piece that sold instantly.

Thank you Victoria for Staging my Home for Success!

Victoria,

I contacted several Stagers regarding getting my listing Staged. You were by far the most responsive. Not only did you do an amazing job, but you were able to get in and get it Staged within 2 days and for a great price. I was in a contract within 2 weeks.

"Victoria has great design skills and is very passionate about what she does. She can even make a small room look bigger. Magic.

Her long and successful experience gives Victoria a definite point of view on the best and most profitable ways to Stage a property. With that said, she will always listen, and try to incorporate our ideas as well.

Victoria has certainly made a difference in the Marketing presence of our properties, and she has worked hard over the years to keep us and our clients happy!"

John Keogan Realtor at Murphy O’Brien

"Victoria Hunter and her company STAGE for $UCCESS Staged my client's Foster City property beautifully. We had multiple offers on the first day, and lots of positive comments from both clients and other Realtors.

Victoria also recommended and handled the replacement of a dining area light Fixture. That change took the room out of the 70's!

Victoria's team even helped my client move to her new House. Not every Stager pays so much attention to such details.

We highly recommend her!"

Bill Manolis

"Victoria has done several Stagings for us and we found them to be more than satisfactory. I know that our properties sell faster than the un-staged properties when Victoria Stages them. I strongly recommend her."

  • Fact

    Staged homes will sell faster when compared with un-staged houses. From the date of listing until the day of closing, home staging shortens this time frame, even in a slow real estate market.
  • Tip

    When Hiring a Professional Stager:

    Be sure you understand their contracts, policies and procedures. Be sure to build a relationship so you can count on them and trust them with your clients.
