About Us
Our Services:
Staging Consultation
The first step in preparing your home to stand out from the rest and attract qualified buyers is to make an appointment with us for a consultation. We will tour your home with objective eyes noting what buyer's will notice. Every home has some wonderful qualities which need to be highlighted as well as some items that may concern potential buyers. We identify each of these on our walk through and take detailed notes and photographs. A few days after the consultation, sellers are provided a detailed proposal with instructions and an action plan of proven staging strategies and can choose to do it themselves or hire Shine to come back and stage.

Occupied Staging
Upon acceptance of a proposal after the consultation, the next step is to execute the staging. The scope of the staging can vary immensely depending on the size, age, and condition of the home and may include coordination of proposed capital improvements, selection of new paint colors, rearranging or assistance removing furniture, and additions of new artwork, furniture, and accessories. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so our goal is to present your home in it’s best light from the moment it hits the market.

Vacant Staging
Ask any realtor and they will tell you vacant homes are a challenge to sell. In today’s market, staging is a necessity for strategically marketing vacant properties. Most buyers find it difficult to envision their furnishings in an empty space. Keeping the buyer demographic for each property in mind, we create a warm and welcoming haven to encourage an emotional connection between the buyer and the home with our carefully curated inventory of on trend furniture, artwork and accessories. We handle all rental furniture and accessory selection, delivery & installation as well as removal of the inventory upon sale of property. Staged homes generate the greatest market attention and spend less days on the market.

Redesign
For those who are not preparing their house to sell but would like help creating beautiful, welcoming spaces to enjoy themselves, we offer interior design services. From simple changes like choosing paint colors or new accessories to completely redecorating a house from top to bottom, we strive to assist homeowners in creating an environment they'll love.
