You can find a list of qualified professional home stagers nation wide through the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) an industry trade association for home stagers and redesigners that offers continued education and accountability.

Hi Michelle, I offer some alternatives to traditional staging including Virtual staging for vacant homes. This is a very affordable and realistic approach to creating a warm impression for buyers to visualize the space and enhance your marketing options for online photos. no moving in or out, no long term rental of inventory, fast and affordable. I also provide online staging consultations for home owners looking for staging coaching and have had great results as well with this service. Check out my website at http://www.tiffanyshomestaging.com for examples virtual work. I'd be happy to further discuss your needs just give me a ring at 608-438-5660.

Thanks,
Tiffany Esser, ASP, RESA

Michelle,

I highly recommend Karen Otto. She and I have worked together on some marketing projects and she is full of good ideas.

Sure, but.

Most companies will have a limited selection of styles, which aren't always appropriate for the home in question.

It would be more useful to find one that had an inventory and designer better suited to a particular home, even if they cost a bit more. It is all about value, after all.

BTW: I strongly urge all residential listing agents to avail themselves of the ASP courses or their equivalent. Interior design is, after all, how we create that all-important First Impression for the prospective buyer, and it occurs whether we take conscious and deliberate action or leave it to chance!

She is the best and can bring the price into what ever catagory is needed to fit the situation and price range of house. She can also do a full model home for a builder.

I don't know of any in Dallas, though I could recommend a few in the Northern Virginia area.

As you probably know, there are a couple of different home staging training programs out there, and most have online directories of people who've passed their courses. The drawback is that the courses range from multi-day/several thousand dollar courses to home study courses for a few hundred dollars. So you have to know the quality of the training--but you can do that by examining the web sites and see what's necessary for certification.

There's another alternative: virtual home staging. It tends to be very affordable--a few hundred dollars for several rooms "virtually staged" on a computer. The result is photorealistic images of the staged rooms. Here's a link to one virtual staging company: http://virtualstagingsolutions3d.com

Hope that helps.
