Compass Real Estate Testimonial

Sold in One Week for $283,202 Over Asking—A Pacific Palisades Home Staging Success Story

This beautiful Cape Cod style house we staged in the sought after Via Bluffs area of Pacific Palisades, California sold for $283,202 over its asking price just a week after being listed for sale!

We dressed the home in a luxurious transitional style, with our favorite new curved sofas lending its living room chic elegance.

We received this wonderful testimonial complimenting our designer, Jennifer, and Relationship Manager, Mary, from Melanie Sommers of Compass Real Estate, who hired us to stage the property:

Dear Meridith,

I wanted to reach out and let you know how over the top happy my clients and I are with the job Jennifer did. Mary is always a total delight to work with, this was my first time with Jennifer and she is stellar.

The house is beautiful, but she made it really stunning and heard us completely on what we did and did not want.

The house sold with multiple offers within the first week, I look forward to many more jobs with Mary and Jennifer. I have had dozens (literally) of agents ask who did the fab staging.

All my best,
Mel

Florida Keys Oasis

Staging a 13 Acre Oasis in the Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are a tropical paradise of luxury resorts and world class diving and nightlife.

A favorite vacation destination for celebrities and CEOs, the string of islands also boasts spectacular homes for the lucky few who can afford their upmarket price.

A 13 acre oasis we recently staged in Key Largo is poised to set a record in that regard—Listed for $24.5 million, it’s expected to sell for far more than the current largest home sale, a $13.5 million property purchased in 2015.

Florida Keys Oasis

The contemporary compound on the Overseas Highway is made up of three distinct houses: a sweeping main residence, a freestanding two-bedroom cottage known as the “boat house,” and a one-bedroom guest house.

The property also features two private, white sand beaches at the edge of Florida Bay and acres of lush forest crisscrossed by a maze of walking paths the former owner planted with a variety of orchids.
