25 Stages in 14 Weeks by Jessica Miller

It's been an crazy busy start to the year and it's about to get even more insane.  Here's a look back at 25 properties I've staged all over the metro in the past 4 months.  Moving furniture has been a total blast this winter and "spring".  I'm looking forward to some medium warm weather days ahead.  Thank you for all the business, Des Moines real estate world!

Best, Jess

Johnston Overhaul by Jessica Miller

I was contacted back in April by a homeowner who lived out of state but had a property in Johnston, Iowa.  The homeowner worked hard to get the home market ready were talking - gallons of paint, lighting updates, stuff removal and a deep cleaning. I was contracted to stage the living room, kitchen, entry, dining room and master suite.  I also advised on paint colors, lighting updates and kept her updated on the progress of the home over the 90 days it took to get the home market ready.

5822 Waterbury Road by Jessica Miller

Last week, I staged a charming home in Waterbury with an amazing outdoor living space.  I am kicking myself for not taking photos before the client painted their walls, because before they were mid-yellow with red accents.  I recommended for them to paint my favorite color - Sherwin Williams Modern Grey.  It's so incredible how paint can transform a home.  Check out the before and afters of this simple and quick stage.
