Carolina Center Staging - So happy I found you guys! You transformed our 'nice' home into a 'wow' home that created a bidding war among several interested buyers. The results... we sold the house in one day and $10,000 over asking price! When we spoke, you told me that staged homes sell faster and for more money. I understood this conceptually, but since I recently purchased a home in Florida, my wife and I saw for ourselves the amazing difference in appeal of a staged vs. unstaged home! We absolutely could not be happier with the entire staging process for selling our Mint Hill home. You and your staff were knowledgeable, punctual and thoroughly professional in every step of the process. Stephanie has an amazing talent of accentuating the positives of every detail of our home - even staging a bedroom as an office and our deck to showcase the backyard was a wonderful touch! Your team told us that by simply painting our dining room, we would make our home flow and more appealing to the eye. We had cool paint colors, yet our dining room was painted in a warm color and disrupted the flow. The simple paint on the dining room made a world of difference! My wife and I couldn't be happier. Bless you, Fran and Carolina Center Staging! I recommend your company highly!

My realtor strongly advised that we seek staging services in order to sell our home quickly and to bring top dollar in a highly competitive market. We decided to take her advice, and it paid off! I found Carolina Center Staging through word of mouth, and I couldn’t be more pleased with their services. Upon initial evaluation, Carolina Center Staging first gave us several recommendations of things to update, fix, or change. These were minor aesthetic updates, and minor repairs that a buyer or an inspector may flag. They even provided us with a reference for someone to do the work quickly and affordably. The house was ready for staging within one week of our first meeting, and the staging itself only took a couple days. I was extremely impressed by the quick turn around and the friendly service. The result was a beautiful staging and design that made our house look incredible. I almost wanted to move back in once the staging showed me how it should have been laid out while we were living there. To prove that staging works, and that Carolina Center Staging is the perfect choice for staging services, the house showed 18 times in the first week, the feedback was all positive, and was under contract within two weeks of placing on the market, and for higher than the average comps. I’m now a firm believer in the power of staging and would recommend Carolina Center Staging to everyone.

I'm so pleased to give a testimony for Fran and her incredible talent for staging and transforming an empty, ordinary house into a beautiful, welcoming home. Her hours of hard work and attention to details was evident throughout the entire home. Fran even went the extra mile by designing and providing incredible color flyers with pictures for the take box in the front yard. This directly contributed to increased interest, more showings and a quick sale. I will continue to sing her praises and highly recommend Carolina Center Staging.

Fran and her team at Carolina Center Staging have been amazing from day one. They are so accommodating and really understand this crazy business of real estate that we're in! Their product is top notch, and they really make our homes look even more beautiful! We have been so pleased with their work and their attitudes! Doing business with them over the past few years has been a delight!

On behalf of Retail Shipping Associates, it is my pleasure to write a testimonial for the talents and expertise of Fran Scarborough. As a national organization that supports thousands of retailers, RS Associates often hosts meetings with business clients from across the country. Two weeks ago we were preparing for just such a meeting with senior level executives from a global transportation company. The meeting was scheduled over two days, and the outcome would play an important role in our company’s future. We welcomed Fran to the challenge to prepare our offices. I can say without hesitation that it was a surprisingly good decision for us as the facilities were properly staged by Fran to put our company in the best possible light for our clients. Fran has an excellent understanding of what people “see”, and puts that knowledge to work. Prior to Fran taking charge, our offices were somewhat utilitarian—they served a function, but did little to show off our assets. Fran first helped to eliminate the clutter and performed a white-glove cleaning. She then put her talents to work in showcasing marketing materials and promotional products that we’ve developed over the years. Next she tackled our conference/presentation room so that our guests were welcomed into a well-lighted, well-appointed, and technically prepared environment. She even skirted the tables and had refreshments available for our clients. All-in-all, the work Fran performed made for a remarkable transformation of our offices. Our meeting went as well, and partly due to the fact that we were all proud to let our clients see our facilities. We got this national account. Based on what Fran did for us, I would highly recommend Fran Scarborough's company to anyone.
