Staging is a marketing tool and requires substantial experience to visualize the correct presentation of your home, what to bring into the home and how the pieces will come together. No two houses are exactly alike and our very skilled stagers have developed styles and methods over time that will benefit you. Preferred Staging employs a team of 5 experienced stagers and assistants, so we can match the best stager from our team to your house and the buyers that will be most interested in your property. Collectively, Preferred Staging has over 50 years of staging experience.
We approach each house as an individual project, taking into account the style of the house, the target buyer, and how the house will show both in the listing photos and in person. We carefully consider the purpose of each space and overall layout, natural light, and existing decorative elements, and use furniture, art and accessories to guide the buyer’s eye into and through the house to enhance their overall experience and first impressions.
The Preferred Staging team pride themselves on their keen attention to detail and for their professionalism for all of their clients, and are known within the staging industry for having the highest quality of work. Our inventory includes timeless and on-trend furniture, art and accessories to meet the needs of each house.
Preferred Staging has been featured numerous times in the Washington Post, Northern Virginia magazine, and the Washington Times. We were featured staging a vacant property on a live broadcast with Holly Morris on FOX 5 Morning News in Washington, DC. Monica Murphy has also been a guest presenter for Redfin's "Listing Coast to Coast" weekly national training webinar broadcast.
