Holmby Tudor Revival

Staged and Sold for $725,000 Over Asking: A Compass Testimonial

Meridith Baer Home continues our spectacular run of luxury staging success stories with this Tudor Revival in Los Angeles’ Holmby Hills: Receiving 22 offers in 10 days, it ultimately sold for a stunning $725,000 over asking!

Our client was so thrilled, he wrote our Relationship Manager, Deb, this glowing testimonial:

I cannot find the words to express my gratitude to you, John [designer] and Meridith Baer Home for the outstanding job you did staging my listing in Little Holmby… With your amazing work, I garnered 22 offers, sold the house for $725,000 over the asking price and closed in less than 30 days.

Every single buyer and agent who toured the home commented on the quality and sophistication of the décor. I have organized the staging of many homes over the years but I have never been prouder of how a house has turned out. John’s impeccable style and attention to detail plus your devotion to the job, personally showing up to help the install after a team member went down ill, reaffirmed for me why MBH has such a stellar reputation.

Thank you for your persistence in securing our first job together and I promise you there will be many more to come!

Thank you, James, and congratulations Deb, John, and crew!READ MORE
