Compass Testimonial: Two Homes Staged and Sold for Six Figures Over Asking

Compass Testimonial: Two Homes Staged and Sold for Six Figures Over Asking

At Meridith Baer Home, we’re always thrilled when our staged homes sell quickly and for far over their asking prices.

We recently furnished two listings in Westwood for James Bremner, Compass and were delighted to learn that both sold within two weeks—one for $485,000 over asking and the other for $310,000 over asking!

James sent this lovely note to our Relationship Manager, Deb, and designer, John:

Dear Deb and John;

Yet again, you and your team have gone up and beyond anything I could ask for in your recent staging of my two Westwood listings.

As always, the quality of the furniture and John’s amazing design aesthetic wowed my sellers and all of the agents/clients who toured the homes.

Both properties sold in multiple offers and way over their asking prices which is a testament to your great work.

I also want to note the fantastic job the crew did, with John, Josh and Mario’s oversite, during the installation. They were professional in every aspect of their jobs and worked tirelessly with smiles on their faces.

Thank you again for another amazing experience with Meridith Baer Home and here’s to many more!!

We recently received this lovely note from Smith and Berg Partners, complimenting the service they received from our designer, John, and salesperson, Deb:

Hi Meridith Baer team,

I am writing to you to send praise for the work done by John M. at our listing on 801 N Alta. I have worked with John before at our listing at 521 20th St and he is always a pleasure to work with. Not only does John possess an incredible gift for designing but he also has great interpersonal skills as he is always punctual and communicative. We received many inquiries and praise regarding the staging at 20th St and also in our first couple of weeks of showing N Alta. We are thrilled with the work he has been able to do for us and we look forward to working with him and the Meridith Baer team again in the future. I would also like to shout out Deb B. for always easily and effectively coordinating these projects. Big Thank You to John, Deb, and Meridith Baer from Smith and Berg Partners!

All the best,
Andrés V.

Best. Testimonial. Ever.

At Meridith Baer Home, we’re always thrilled to hear from happy clients!

Our salesperson Mary D. recently received the best testimonial ever after staging a luxury condo in Los Angeles. Read on for perhaps the most unique, charming feedback we’ve ever received:

Dear Mary,

I want to give you my sincerest apologies for what we put you through. I remember the first day we met. You were a victim of the disfunction between myself and my realtors. You were surrounded by the chaos of my renovation, wearing tyvek booties to protect your feet and a facemark to protect against Covid-19. I was covered head to toe with paint and I was wearing a paint respirator. The air was thick with paint fumes and the floor sticky due to overflow paint. Despite the suboptimal conditions you rose above it all and gave an optimal presentation.

More dysfunction and miscommunication, we started. We delayed. We postponed. We waffled. We stopped dead in our tracks. We started again. We balked. We shot ourselves in the foot. We shot ourselves in the other foot. Finally after the holidays we spoke with one voice and things looked like everything would be smooth sailing from here on in.

Steven C. Homeowner Testimonial

But the day of installation calamity struck. No “Temporary No Parking Signs???!!”. A car and three dumpsters were taking up the two parking places that was suppose to be reserved for your moving van. I emailed. I texted. I called. I shouted. I stomped my feet. But the city miraculously emptied the dumpsters and removed them. The car took off. Then Ryan, your designer, and I were able to wrangle the parking spaces for the moving van. And in mere seconds the moving van appeared and they parked without incident. The movers wondered what all the fuss was about. It was almost as if you willed your Positive Parking Karma (Parkma) to resolve my dilemma.

After that the installation was a success. Your designer Ryan and his team transformed my cold box of a condo into a vision of what it could be. A warm and loving home.

Steven C. Homeowner Testimonial

I am grateful that you endured our disfunction. You never lost your pose, patience, and professionalism. You, Mary, are a valuable asset to your team and to Meridith Baer.

Sincerely,
Steven C.

Steven, we can’t thank you enough for this delightful note. And Mary and Ryan, congrats on a job very well done!READ MORE

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!

Rodeo Realty, Luxury Estates Division Testimonial

Rodeo Realty, Luxury Estates Division Testimonial

We recently received this lovely testimonial from our valued client Brandon Assanti of Rodeo Realty’s Luxury Estates Division, whose listing we recently staged in Los Angeles:

I just wanted to quickly send you a message and say how thoroughly happy I’ve been with this entire process.

First of all, Mary [Dembo, Relationship Manager – Sales] is just fantastic… Her expertise and trustworthiness really sealed the deal for me and she’s always been available for any questions or concerns I’ve had.

Also, regarding the design team itself, I used Jennifer Lane and couldn’t have been happier. I had a very tough house to stage but she transformed it and I don’t think it could’ve been any better.

And her team crew leader Marlon was the kindest and really went above and beyond. I so appreciated his hard work.

Just wanted to send a quick message letting you know this feedback. Thank you.

Best Regards,
Brandon Assanti
Agent | Director, Luxury Estates Division
Rodeo Realty Beverly Hills

Thank you, Brandon—and congrats Mary, Jennifer, and Marlon!

Todd K. Testimonial―Again!

Todd K. Testimonial—Again!

We just received our second testimonial from a valued repeat client whose Brentwood, CA home just sold!

Meridith,

My Mandeville Canyon home just sold. It was a long haul, but I know the new owners are very excited and I’m sure they’ll be very happy there.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with MB Home’s installation, execution and finally the move-out. Your team left the house spotless. In fact, I cancelled the cleaning crew I had scheduled.

I have had a lot of good experiences with your company. Since business owners usually only hear when customers have something to complain about, I thought you’d want to hear the good stuff, too!

Thank you for helping me to sell my home.

It’s much appreciated.

Todd

Thank you for your lovely words, Todd. It was our pleasure helping sell your home—again!

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

Naples Home Staging Testimonial

Naples Home Staging Testimonial

We recently received this glowing testimonial about our Relationship Manager, Cami, and Designer, Sarah, from a valued home staging client in Naples:

Cami is a DREAM to work with.

On the recommendation from a fellow realtor, I called Cami and requested to meet at our spec home in Park Shore to see if we might be able to work together. The home is a beautiful new construction build, but was about 25% furnished and just wasn’t showing as well as it could. Cami walked me through the entire process of staging with Meridith Baer—she assured me that she would take care of everything and would work efficiently with one intention in mind: to help us sell the home. That was all I needed to hear!

A week later, Cami joined the designer (Sarah W. from California, also amazing!!) at the home to completely transform it from semi-furnished to absolutely gorgeous and finished. The furniture and artwork selected for the staging is cohesive with the finishes and style of the home, which is so important to us in terms of showing the true potential of our listing.

Our team looks forward to working together again in the future—thank you Cami and Sarah for your incredible hard work and amazing results!!

Santa Barbara Homeowner Testimonial

This wonderful testimonial just came in from a staging client in Santa Barbara’s opulent Montecito suburb!

We are very happy with the fantastic result the Meridith Baer team achieved in the staging of our Montecito home.

Donna Lipofsky was highly professional, attentive, careful, and considerate in structuring the staging plan, proposal, and agreement, which made us very comfortable. We were particularly impressed by the design that Donna and the wonderful designer, Bryanna, created, which opened the view lines to the ocean in every room, making every room feel much larger and open to the outside.

We were also very pleased with the entire MB team during the installation process. Everyone on the team was wonderfully courteous and respectful, meticulously careful in causing no damage to our property, continuously hard-working and productive, and remarkably quick and efficient. In today’s world, such an efficient and productive team effort is very rare to see.

Every aspect of the process and the staging went very smoothly, and everyone who has visited our home since the staging installation has been overwhelmed by the stunning improvement. We will certainly use MB staging again and will also happily recommend them to others.

—Richard B.

Westside Estate Agency Testimonial

We received this wonderful testimonial from MBH client Elizabeth Donovan, an agent with Westside Estate Agency, about her experience with our designer Jennifer Lane!

I would like to acknowledge one of your designers, Jennifer Lane, for her superb staging of two homes recently. Jennifer was tasked to stage an historically preserved house in Wilshire Park that required a very special touch to make the home feel warm and inviting. She immediately grasped the concept of the aesthetic and worked diligently to deliver. Jennifer knocked it out of the park and my client was floored with the final result. Numerous agents and prospective buyers asked who staged the home and a handful of asked who specifically from Meridith Baer did the design, as they were blown away with the level of thoughtfulness. I have never received this many inquiries about a home’s staging before.

Existing in a world where people love to gripe and pen negative Yelp reviews, I believe it’s more important to give credit where credit is due. Hats off to Jennifer for her hard work, dedication, professionalism, and unparalleled eye for design.

Cheers to JL!
