As a realtor, I have worked with Sylvia for the past 4 years. I continue to find her home staging and design ideas to be fresh and personalized to the home and the owner. She is delightful and insightful to work with—a true professional!
I have had the pleasure of working with Sylvia Manwell/Home Staging Works for a few years now. I initially contacted her to help stage a house that had previously failed to sell due to a challenging small floor plan. She had just the right furniture for the spaces and as a result the house sold in two weeks! I have used her on subsequent listings and each time she does a marvelous job of staging the homes to best showcase their spaces and features. Her furniture and accessories are all upscale and in excellent condition. Her team is fast, getting in and out in record time. Each of the properties sold within 1% of the list price. I recommend Sylvia to anyone I know in need of an excellent stager.
Sylvia and her team have been instrumental in the success of many of our listings. Their staging has transformed otherwise average homes into high demand properties. Staging not only improves the marketability of the listings, but has become something we build our listing business around. Sylvia manages each of our clients with respect and kindness.
I was serious about selling our house and knew I needed help so I decided to find a designer/stager who would be able to give me an unbiased opinion: I found Sylvia through the internet.Sylvia was wonderful! She came out and walked through the house from the front to the back and everything in between. Although I had a 3D design app that worked wonders it couldn’t tell me about colors or what pictures to put up and where. It also couldn’t tell me about resources that could help me prep the house. She analyzed the house as a buyer would. Not only did she help me with knowing what to do, she has helped has helped me throughout the whole process. She has answered all my questions, looked at the colors, etc. to make sure they were perfect.Would I recommend Sylvia... Absolutely!!! was she worth the money? Absolutely! I know you are thinking that you can do it yourself but let’s face it, you are bias about your home, you already think it’s wonderful but the buyers may not. And let’s be truthful... it all about what the buyer likes and will pay for. If you want to make your house stand out so it will sell than spend the money and hire Sylvia to make it look great, appeal to buyers and make it shine she is really worth every penny and then some.
Working with Sylvia was delightful. We listed our home in the middle of winter - when nobody is out looking for houses in Spokane - and yet it was only on the market for a few weeks. I attribute much of that to Sylvia because she really helped us look at our home with a buyer’s eye. We didn’t have much money to spend on staging, and Sylvia understood that. She helped us rearrange the furniture we already had, and she arranged items on our shelves in interesting and fresh ways. I don’t have that talent, so having Sylvia come in and assist us was a gift. Using her was the best money we spent in preparing to list our house, and I recommend her services with great enthusiasm.
Sylvia was great to work with! She came in confident and new exactly what to do to get our house ready to sell. She kept in mind inexpensive and affordable, yet high end look that she knew buyers would like. She was willing to come at our convenience, and was always very pleasant. The staging of our home was most impressive too. We went from a house with four little boys under the age of 7 to a pristine, high class decorated home! We sold our home within a month of putting it on the MLS, and got exactly what we were asking for in price! Thank you Sylvia and your team at Home Staging Works for all of your hard work!
Sylvia and her staging team are amazing and they deliver great results! As a realtor I have used her services dozens of times over the past few years to stage my vacant listings. Time and time again, the Home Staging Works team does and extraordinary job of staging my homes. The houses Sylvia stages sell quickly and for substantially higher price. I highly recommend her and her team!
I have worked with Sylvia and her team for several years now. She is always wonderful at helping my clients get their home in its best showing condition, whether it is with her furnishings from the staging warehouse or whether she works with what the seller already has in the home. I always try to work with Home Staging Works when I have a home that is in need of that little “extra something” to get it in the best showing condition.
Home Staging Works does the best job of anyone I know at transforming a vacant home into a home that sells quickly. They also do an amazing job of consulting with homeowners who are still living in their home to get it “show ready.”
I’ve worked with Sylvia and Home Staging Works for several years. My clients are always taken care of during Sylvia’s consultations and staging process. I refer Home Staging Works to other agents in my office on a consistent basis because of quality Sylvia and her team have continually brought to my business and clients.
I hired Sylvia to consult with my sellers before we listed their home. Another agent had it listed for the 6 months prior to my listing. It was an unusual floor plan which I believe was the problem. After using all of Sylvia’s advice to move their furniture and change some décor, we received an offer within 3 days!!! She is a very skilled designer and knows exactly what will make a potential buyer love a home. Since then I have never listed a house without using Home Staging Works to help prepare the home before the photographer arrives.
