Featured Reviews for Home Stagers in Chicago
Home Staging By Lisa
Home Stagers in Chicago
"Lisa is amazing at staging any type of home. I began working with Home Staging by Lisa in 2012 and EVERY property that she stages for me sells. Many of the properties received multiple offers! Projects Lisa worked with my sellers on include hands on staging of their occupied home and also full staging of vacant properties. Lisa is an outstanding professional. She knows how to handle delicate situations with sellers of occupied homes when making recommendations of how to prepare the house for showings without making the seller feel their décor is less than perfect. When staging vacants, she really looks at the style of the property to determine what furniture and décor best fit the home. She uses real furniture and professional movers so the job is done right all around. Her design planning gives prospective buyers the "wow" effect a home needs to get buyers in the door & offers to the seller. Lisa goes the extra mile to make a home stand out. I've seen many staged properties, but the work Lisa does is top notch!"

Before and After Interiors by Kathy
Home Stagers in Chicago
"I have had the pleasure to working AGAIN with Kathy. Her creativity and talent always amaze me. She comes into our house and uses what you have to make it amazing! Just a few ideas from Kathy & my house looks brand new and modern. It is obvious she loves what she does and it shows! She assisted with my dining room and living room. My 2 rooms look like something from a catalog. She did "simple" things that I would never have thought of and the results are stunning. Once again I would recommend her 100%."

Jackie Cappalli Designs
Home Stagers in Chicago
"I had the pleasure of working with Jackie Cappalli in preparing my home for sale in Kildeer. She is an outstanding stager with a very strong background in interior design. Her creativity and attention to detail were apparent at every turn. Jackie exceeded my expectations and was an absolute pleasure to have in my home. During the process she was always prompt, professional and a great communicator while also being sensitive to my needs and preferences along the way. As she completed her project, I am now left with a peaceful and beautiful home which has been complemented repeatedly in my showings. Jackie’s touches have also left a greater sense of order and peace in my home, a feeling that is so appreciated by my family during this hectic period of home selling. I am truly grateful for all that Jackie has done for me and I highly recommend her to anyone needing home staging or design services. Sincerely Karen Mannion"

Staging Windy City, Inc.
Home Stagers in Chicago
"Staging Windy City has been fantastic to work with. My company has had multiple condo units for sale that were staged by Patty and her crew. Each time the staging is done, the units look fantastic and the pictures for the listings come out great. It has dramatically decreased the time the units sit on the market waiting for a buyer. I couldn't recommend Staging Windy City enough for all staging needs."

What does a home stager do?


Home staging companies in Chicago employ a variety of different techniques to present the home in the best light possible. The first step will likely be to make sure the home is impeccably clean, including the exterior of the house. Next the home stager will work on removing the personal touches that are unique to the current owners. Paint colors might go from dramatic reds and purples to neutral tones like beige and taupe, in order to appeal to the masses. The home will likely be cleared of family photos, risqué artwork, collections and knickknacks, so potential buyers will be able to better envision their own life in the house. In some cases furniture will be swapped out, and you might not even recognize your own house. Some home stagers tackle most of these tasks themselves, while others work with subcontractors and other professionals to get the job done. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home stagers: Interior Designers & Decorators, Photographers, Real Estate Agents.

What should I consider before hiring a home staging company?


The process of staging a home can be difficult for some homeowners, especially when being asked to change things you’ve poured your heart and soul into over the years; but try not to take anything personally, as the stager only has your best interest in mind and no intention of insulting your personal taste. Before you contact a professional home staging company in Chicago, make sure to consider a few things: Are you willing to change your home and take the advice of this professional to help sell your house? Do you think your house would greatly benefit from the help of a stager? How long are you comfortable having your home on the market? A staged home is likely to sell faster and, on occasion, at a higher asking price than a non-staged home. While there is no guarantee this will always be the case, it’s often true and can make the entire selling and moving process a lot less stressful in the long run. If you are selling through a real estate agent, it’s a good idea to get their opinion on whether staging your home would be beneficial to your specific situation.

Questions to ask potential home stagers in Chicago:


  • May I see your portfolio?
  • What type of training and experience do you have in home staging?
  • Are you insured?
  • What is your average ratio of listed to sold properties?
  • Do you offer any sort of guarantee on the sale of the property?
