We chose Michelle Cifala to both stage and sell our house after attending one of her staging seminars. Both the seminar and Michelle’s ideas about staging our particular house were outstanding. At first we felt a bit uncomfortable having so many of our “precious” things removed but we came to understand her wisdom about how fewer things makes the rooms appear larger, how important it is to have centers of interest in rooms and how the natural features of the house are more noticeable with fewer items inside and with the furniture arranged differently. It worked! We sold our house to a couple who came to the first open house! It was great to be able to sell the house so quickly and I’m sure that Michelle’s staging expertise contributed to that as well as her sparkling personality and her honesty. We recommend Michelle without reservation.
