Work Description:

Standard staging package, including initial consultation (advice about painting, repair, and staging options), and staging using selected pieces of our own furniture as well as furniture provided by Creative Concepts.

We could not be more grateful that our realtor urged us to stage our home, and even more grateful for the recommendation to contact Margaret! She was prompt, professional, very direct and decisive, and the quality of her design work was exceptional. We did everything she advised, and she and her assistant delivered everything she promised, as promised, in addition to adjusting gracefully to several date shifts on our end. As a direct result of her excellent work, our home showed beautifully, and sold within a week of being listed, at well above the asking price. In short, staging our home with Margaret was one of the best financial investments we've probably ever made!

Thank you for taking the time to review the services you received! This home wasn't your typical "cookie cutter home", which could have made it difficult to sell. You also took a huge leap of faith - painting colors you didn't feel comfortable with and painting cabinetry white. By being willing to implement our suggestions, we had a home run!

Design and furnish an assisted living apartment

Margaret and her team at Creative Concecpts did a fantastic job on completely furnishing an apartment for my mom at an assisted living facility. Her apartment is the envey of all. They measured each room and made sure they got the perfect size furniture. The did all this is just a few days. This was a very difficult move for my mom but she fell in love with her apartment as soon as she saw it. I have used Creative concepts numerous times for my own home and have always been more than satisfied with the work they do. Their area of expertise is to help stage your home to show well when you are considering putting her house up for sale. I highly reccommend that anyone thinking of selling their home use them so that they get the price they want for their home. They get a 6 star rating from me!!!! Barb

Work Description:

Make recommendations on affordable updates, stage vacant home

Margaret did a beautiful job of staging my home, and did so in an extremely timely and professional manner. She and my new realtor (Dewey Whitton) met me at the house immediately after I listed and explained what would need to be done to sell the house quickly, which was my goal. I agreed to what they recommended and cooperated every way I could. Within a week and a half the house was up on MLS with astoundingly beautiful photos of Margaret's staging. Within four days there were at least three offers. I accepted an offer several days later that was significantly over asking. This would not have occurred without Margaret. If you want to sell your house quickly, work with Margaret and do what she recommends.

Vacant Home Staging

It was a pleaure working with Margaret. We just recently put our home on the market and were told we should empty our home to make sale ready (bad advice). It made our home look so bare, sterile and uninviting. We were wary from our past experience to call any other referrals, but decided to take a leap of faith and call Margaret. It was the best thing we ever did.

She was professional, creative and reasonable. We were amazed at the results. She not only made our home sale ready, she totally transformed our home and brought it to life again. It was gorgeous! It made all the difference in the world. I have a new appreciation for staging and will never sell a home without having it done.

I don't know why anyone selling their home would not call her. She saves you time, money, and gets real results. I highly recommend Margaret and her husband Joe for any of your staging, home repairs or renovation needs. I will absolutely be calling them in the future and would urge anyone needing help to do the same. Sabrina P.

I've worked with Margaret on several projects both professionally and personally. She is always very professional, creative, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Creative Concepts.

Work Description:

She staged a 4 bedroom home with a small living area.

Margaret brings years of experience in the real estate business into your home and transforms your spaces into an area any family would love to spend time. Until my recent experience with Margaret I didn't believe staging empty houses was useful. What Margaret did in my recent sale was amazing and I can easily say her work is what sold the home within weeks of staging.
