I was very pleased with Carol and the work she did to stage our house for sale. Her style, creativity and ability to transform rooms without spending a lot was very evident. She's knowledgable about what buyers want and was able to make a big impact even with small changes. She has a great eye for color and room balance. In several rooms she suggested we remove extraneous pieces of furniture and it truly opened the rooms up. Carol is extremely easy to work with and I appreciated her willingness to either let me shop for the items, or when I was running out of time she would do the shopping. And she was genuinely concerned about our home, texting me about ideas after she'd visit. At our open house the first weekend we had over 27 families who had seen photos of our home! Carol is very reasonable in her pricing and can save the homeowner a lot of time running around to find the "perfect" comforter or pillow! I would highly recommend Carol if you're thinking of selling your home.

“Carol has a good eye and did an excellent job staging our home. She is quick, efficient and very considerate of our budget. I would hire Carol again if I have to stage a house or redecorate. I strongly recommend Staging by Carol for potential sellers.”
Carol helped me stage our house for The Woman's Club of Ridgewood House Tour annual fundraiser with the proceeds benefiting local charities. She was wonderful in donating her time to this project and this cause. Carol was amazing, focused, diligent, and very patient with me. She helped me clean out years of accumulated junk, organize books and other materials and helped showcase the best aspects of the house using existing furniture and accessories. She also did a superb job highlighting objects from travels and other unique elements turning our home appealing to all the visitors that day. They talked about our gorgeous house for years to come.

I have used Carol several times to stage homes before I put them on the market to sell. She has an amazing eye . She can walk into a home and instantly see small changes that make a huge difference! Her prices are very reasonable. The homes she stages sell quickly . All of my clients have been incredibly satisfied with her work. I highly recommend Carol for all of your staging needs.

“We hired Carol to help us prepare our house for sale. She was wonderful to work with and our house sold at the open house the first day on the market above list price. Amazing results amazing professional thanks so much!”
“I am very pleased with my office remodeling job. Carol was very professional and took into consideration my preferences and budget. I would definitely hire her again for any remodeling or staging job”.
“Carol @ Staging by Carol is AMAZING! I was referred to her from my realtor prior to putting my house on the market. My split-level house isn't very big but Carol staged it in a way to make it feel larger and more inviting. She immediately transformed my living room by rearranging the furniture, taking some pieces out, and adding in some pieces. She really opened up the space, which was important because this was the first room buyers would see upon entering my house. Carol did the same for the rest of my house. She walked me through each room and made changes and recommendations. Carol works with what you already have. There were a few things I had to buy to add the finishing touches but it wasn't much. After my house was staged, I said to myself "Do I really want to move?"
Carol has a keen eye for interior design. She works with you throughout the entire process even once she leaves your home. It was definitely a smart move and money well spent hiring Carol to stage my house. It was under contract in 1 WEEK!! I look forward to working with Carol again when I decorate my new home.”

“Carol helped me redesign my master bathroom. She's a professional and a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the products involved was vast. She had creative design ideas that would have never occurred to me, but look great! She also recommended a great contractor to do the work.”
“I would like thank you for your completion of the staging. I would be correct in stating that the house went under contract within a week after you were finished. While we all know that the house and the buyer have to match up to each other, I am sure that the positive changes you provided helped in the sale. Thanks for your help. I will see what I can do to send future sales your way.”

“This is my first project with Carol. I had seen her work and was impressed with the results. I asked to help me "polish up" my living room, which had some nice furniture, but not a lot of style and was visually awkward. She was able to incorporate great ideas while keeping to the character of the house. I admired her ability to maximize the budget I had with smart shopping and by re-purposing furniture I had in other rooms.
Overall, I liked the enthusiasm and creativity Carol brought to the project, and will use her services again in the future.”

“My husband and I found Carol to be simply amazing. She transformed our house into a beautiful showpiece. Her suggestions are practical and inexpensive. We cannot thank Carol enough because we got our first offer the first week our house was listed."
– Tejal Patel
“Carol was a pleasure with whom to work and knew what worked well in my home in terms of style, color and sizing. She has an excellent eye and can work within your budget to create the decor and look you desire.We found a beautiful dining room set, dishes, flatware and accessories for my dining and family rooms. We are working on finding a rug and lighting for the dining room too. She has been a tremendous resource for me and a huge part of helping with decorating decisions to make my home beautiful. I highly recommend her.”
“Carol Wilkinson is the consummate professional. Her taste is exquisite and her sensibilities are right on.
Online photographs of a new listing are the public's first introduction to that home and one does not have a second chance to make a first impression. That is why one needs Staging by Carol. She knows how furniture needs to be rearranged and she knows where to make the sometimes small changes that make all the difference to a room and a home. Her fees are very reasonable and she knows where to purchase those necessary items that don't break the bank. She has access to excellent contractors as well.
I highly recommend Carol and her services to sell your property for the most amount of money and in the least amount of days”
