Home Staging Testimonials

Why Homeowners & Realtors Are Teaming Up With
Home Staging Solutions!

“As a fan of HGTV, I knew the value of staging a home for sale but didn’t know where to start. I was relieved when our realtor referred us to Deborah; I was excited when we met. We instantly found a connection, and I knew immediately that Deborah had the experience and “vision” to turn our bland, cluttered house into a warm, inviting home. Deborah was professional and hard-working but fun to work with! I enjoyed the process as much as the results. And the results? The first day after listing our house, we had two offers in hand! I would highly recommend Deborah to anyone wishing to sell their home! ”

-Toshiko Hadden, Homeowner, Carlsbad, CA

“Deborah, thanks for your assistance with selling my home. Until the home was staged we did not receive any firm offers. Yet within weeks of staging we were successful in securing several offers, which finally led to the home being sold. Thank you!”

-Laurel Cameron, Carlsbad, CA

“Deborah Brischler is fantastic! I had seen the results of her decorating skills in homes on the market in the Carlsbad area and how well the homes showed as a result. However the real appreciation for her talents was in first listening to her interact with my clients, then watching her bring together the best of my clients furnishings with her own to create just the right look that showed off the home to its best potential.

Deborah had just the right communication skills to explain her vision, delicately showing what furnishings did and did not work and not in any way insult or question my client’s taste. This skill really helped in getting my clients to agree completely to her suggestions and get their complete cooperation.

Perhaps where her talent and gifts really showed was in how she could visualize the best way to enhance a room with color and balance with just the right amount of furniture and art to make the room really pop! I was so amazed as to how she used color in bringing about cohesion with the furnishings and the accessories she used. She also worked tirelessly to make certain that every detail of the staging was just perfect.

The real test for any home stager is how the public reacts when viewing the home. In the caravans I had both with my office and the Carlsbad area caravan, the response and feedback was universal. Every agent commented on how beautiful the home looked and how well it showed. Many asked who I used for the staging and complemented Ms. Brischler on what a great job she did.

And finally, when potential clients came thru the home for showings, they too where very complimentary on how nice the home looked. Deborah’s knack for using just the right amount of furnishings to show the home and all its best features really did the trick. In two show weeks we had 2 offers and were able to get an excellent price for my clients.

I am confident that without Deborah’s skill and and hard work I would not have sold the house as quickly as I did or for the price I was able to negotiate. My clients were so pleased with the job Deborah did and how nice she made their house look, that they hired her to help decorate their new home. Now that is the best compliment a stager could get.”

-Andrew Ashton, Polly Van Every Rogers & Associates, Prudential California Realty

“We were a little skeptical at first when our realtor suggested using a stager for our home, but then we saw the amazing transformation that took place in the hands of Deborah, and we immediately became converts! It looked so good we almost didn’t want to sell it! Deborah has great vision and can bring out the best in any home. We highly recommend Deborah’s services; she is professional, organized and truly a pleasure to work with!”

-Christina and Eric Johnson, Homeowners, San Elijo Hills, CA

“I just wanted to say what a great job you did for my clients in Carlsbad. You were readily available to meet with them, your personality meshed well with those of my clients, and you got them on board with what needed to be done. You made excellent decisions on what worked in their home and made their home show like a true model home. You also were personally available to assist them throughout the process. We were thrilled when the house SOLD in a week! I will not hesitate to utilize your services again!”

-Bryan Devore, Prudential California Realty

“I was in the “just moved in” stage for about a year and a half! I was buying lots of things for the house, but wasn’t sure how to arrange it all. I didn’t know where to start. Deborah helped me with a plan. Using mostly things that I already had, we edited, rearranged and added a few new accessories to transform my home and give it some style. I get great satisfaction walking into my house now. It’s finished and it’s beautiful! And my husband was happy that I didn’t have to spend a lot of money to make our home look so great! I can’t thank Deborah enough for all her help.”

-Cathy Abbadessa, Homeowner, San Elijo Hills, CA

“Deborah helped me decorate my kitchen and dining room last year on a trip to New York. They came out great! We did it all in a day and a half. I wish she lived nearby. Now I call her my “mobile designer”, because when I need an idea or I’m out shopping and can’t decide what to buy…I just call Deborah! She always comes through for me!”

-Lisa Beach, Homeowner, Manlius, NY

“When we first met, I was impressed not only with your good looks and professional attire, but the positive energy that comes with you. Within just a brief association I could recognize that your suggestions and knowledge was outstanding and you were truly interested in contributing to making any assignment successful.

It is some of those qualities that you possess that makes you an outstanding talent and gracious person. It has been my sincere pleasure to have met you, worked with you and count you as one of my dearest colleagues. ”

-Renee Barnes, Senior Designer & Principle, Imagination Design Home

“Working with you to ready the San Elijo Hills property for the market has been a great experience. You have provided the sellers excellent service at a cost that they understand and approve.

Today when buyers enter the property, the response is always, “Wow! Now this is a beautiful home.” You have assembled pieces of furniture and accessories that work wonderfully with the style and décor of the property. Your selections have a universal appeal that work equally as well for a young family with small children and for empty nesters seeking an elegant statement.

Best of all, you have helped the sellers select furnishings and accent pieces that they will move into their new home when this property sells.

I’m so pleased that our working together has produced great service and value for my sellers and a great new friend for me!”

-Janie Killermann, Masterpiece Realty Associates
