SETTING THE STAGE FOR SUCCESS...
After a walk-through with your REALTOR® we’ll arrange a consultation with an interior design professional. She’ll work with what you have on hand and suggest simple fixes to get you ready to your professional photo shoot. From creative furniture rearrangements to make the most of your space to suggestions for a few accents you could add, she’ll get your home ready for its marketing debut! It takes more than a phone to take great photos! Your property deserves the best – that’s why we hire a professional photographer to capture your home on camera. Our extensive marketing program requires photos in a variety of sizes and resolutions and our professional photographer delivers! There are  tricks he uses to maximize the sense of light and spaciousness in every room! Today, the first showing of your home happens online! More and more buyers make an offer after only one in-person viewing. Preparing your home meticulously for its photoshoot is one of the most important things you can do to help your sale.
