"We have owned our home for about five years and feel we have really kept it up with custom paint, flooring, and updating décor as time went on. We had never heard of the term 'Staging' until my parents recently sold their house. They hired a Staging Consultant and what a difference it made in their house. Unfortunately, they only got to enjoy about two weeks of the new changes. It sold in that time with two offers. Based on the dramatic differences we saw from the staging consultant, we were in the market to find someone to come to our house and give us advice on 'Staging to Live'. We did not want to sell our house, just needed some professional advice. We then found Kathy West. Within a week, Kathy was at our house doing our walk-through and taking pictures. She truly took the time to understand our style and the purpose of each room. She explained all the options and gave us the choice on how far we wanted to go with 'Staging'. Kathy then returned with two folders; one with her recommendations of layout for each room and another with different furniture and accents. We went through each room and she explained in detail her suggestions and choices. For our master suite and bath, she even brought a few items to add and changed a few things to help us visualize her ideas. To us, that was the most beneficial aspect. Kathy really wanted us to see just what a few items and changes can do to a room. Kathy's knowledge and networking are so beneficial to her clients. She comes with our very high recommendation. Her customer service is superb."Sarah & Nick, Springhill, Kansas
I simply could not believe the difference in the home at 8905 Farley in Overland Park. You did a superb job of making it very appealing. This home was nice, but now it creates the urgency to a buyer that if they like this, they should buy it before someone else comes calling. I did not realize how much staging improves the desirability of a home until I saw this one. I have seen other homes where the difference was not that great; I feel that this one will sell because of your hard work and fantastic results."Mary Fate, Realtor: Reece & Nichols Real Estate
"Kathy staged a listing of mine which had plenty of competition on the same street. My listing was shown only a few times before I got a contract and the other homes on the street are still for sale. Kathy's excellent taste and high quality staging is just the ticket for a quick sale!"Jenny Turner Tuttle, Realtor: Reece & Nichols Real Estate
"I have worked many times with Kathy West as a stager on my listings. I appreciate her professionalism and how she works and communicates with my clients. She's very creative and provides different options for the sellers. She allows plenty of time for the appointment and is never rushed—she stays until all the questions are answered. I consider her to be a huge asset to my team and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a professional, qualified stager."Michele Parrish, The Parrish Team: Keller Williams Realty Partners Inc.
