Big Success Story

Listed for $4,000,000
Sold in 5 Days for $5,140,000

This beachfront home was a furnished rental before we staged it for sale. Previous owners had added furnishings over the years to the point where it was over-crowded. And the red, gold, and green color scheme dated back to the early 2000’s. We removed the excess furniture, added furniture where it was needed and updated the color scheme to suit a 2021 beach house. It was listed September 15, 2021 and the sellers immediately got 12 offers. It sold for 28.5% above asking price.

Naples Home Staging did a wonderful job for our client on our most recent project together. It was a home that had A LOT of de-personalizing that needed to happen including completely repainting the interior and reworking how the rooms were used to make it far more appealing to buyers which we know will definitely result in a quicker sale!

We highly recommend the team at Naples Home Staging…buyers are becoming even MORE discerning in this Instagram, HGTV, social media world we live in and after 25 years in Naples marketing and selling real estate for our clients, we have realized that if you want your home to sell and stand out from the competition, professional staging is becoming a MUST….If you are a real estate professional or a seller thinking of having a listing or your personal home staged, DO IT! It is WORTH EVERY DIME! Naples Home Staging are a great team and we will absolutely use them again very soon.

After having secured a great listing in Grey Oaks, marketing it properly to sell was of utmost importance. I had used Ann Waters and her team at Naples Home Staging previously, but the residences had not been in the 4-million-dollar range. Knowing what Ann had done for the other homes, I had no hesitation to call her in, to stage this 6300 square foot residence and transition it from the previously heavy Mediterranean to the current coastal theme. An additional challenge was we needed the job completed yesterday’! Ann made time during the busiest part of Season to assess the situation. She toured the home, made notes and arrived within a couple of days with the complete package! Her pieces and arrangements transformed a vast vacant residence into a comfortable beautiful home accentuating its best features. My listing had an offer within 3 weeks of the staging, after having languished for 6 weeks. Naples Home Staging provides a complete service, from Staging, decorating, consulting to purchase if requested. I would highly recommend Naples Home Staging. Very talented, easy to work with, reasonably priced and great follow up! They have done 3 of my homes and all my clients are very pleased with Ann’s services.

Ann Waters and Naples Home Staging worked wonders for us. They were creative, thoughtful, fast and professional. Once they finished the staging, we sold the home within two days at a premium to list price! Needless to say, we will use Ann and Naples Home Staging again in a heartbeat.

As a 20-year veteran of the Naples real estate industry, I can enthusiastically recommend Ann Waters and her company, Naples Home Staging!!! She and her luxury design team were terrific on a recent high-end Moorings beachfront condo project.  They far exceeded all expectations and did their job with diligent and efficient service and a great attitude.  Very professional with a personal touch.  A real pleasure to deal with.  In fact, this was my first, first-hand experience with the “staging” concept and it was a total Home Run!

Some quick background on this particular project:  Though new to me and John R Wood Properties, this particular listing that we had Ann stage had been on & off the active market for nearly 9 YEARS! To say that this listing was “stale” was an understatement of epic proportions.  Ann was referred to me by a JRW colleague as a “Magician.”  I was skeptical, as I had only heard about this concept anecdotally.

Lo and behold, when the very first prospects came to view this residence after Ann and her team had only HALF COMPLETED the staging project, they sat down for 45 minutes and fell in love with the condo.  Not only was it the very best viewing appointment in the past 9 years, but it was also the ONLY appointment that mattered, as these particular prospects ended up buying the condo and closing on it several weeks later.

So YES, I have become a big believer in Ann Waters and Naples Home Staging!  She is a Magician, indeed!!!
