    Interesting post. Love hearing about the items that were implemented and those that weren’t. The clients were lucky to find you and have your sage advice…even if it was late in the process

    You did an absolutely amazing job in staging this home for maximum appeal, Jill and seriously, that master bathroom is fabulous! I, too, would have loved to see more color in the kitchen, but it sounds like even though you didn’t *win* that decision, the home still so so fast that every other point of input you gave your clients was WELL worth their investment.

    And seriously, only 995.00 for your services? I would have paid 2500.00 – or more, to get all of the services you are delivering + this level of staging expertise. #justsayin’

    Beautiful job, Jill! Flipping houses is certainly not for the faint of heart and calling you was a really smart move on their part! Having professional advice is invaluable, and yours is worth way more than you are charging! You did an amazing job even with pushback and a tiny budget. And that master bath is lovely!

    Beautiful result – no wonder it sold quickly. I think many think house flipping is an easy thing – but this shows how big a project it can be. I spoke with a woman a few times who was getting into house flipping with a partner – I was hoping there might have been some work there for me coming up with the design plan – but she just wasn’t in the head space that houses needed more than a fresh coat of paint to flip. These clients were smart to bring you in – albeit late in the process!

      It’s hard to get through to some people how IMPORTANT the design is for a flip, Linda. Everyone assumes it’s going to be so much easier, like they see on TV. Thanks for your comments!

    I give a lot of credit to both flippers and stagers. I don’t think I would be able to do either very successfully. Great job!

    Jill, this is an amazing home, story and photos!! For all you did in saving a panicked flipper, I agree with Leslie, you should definitely charge more. What a yard….wow!!

    Color in the kitchen would have been nice but it’s a beautiful open,and light-filled home. I’m not surprised it sold right away. Love the patio doors for the bedroom…must have a great view.

    Excellent post. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us!

    What a beautiful job! I would have been curious to see the before photos because I can only imagine the changes that you helped make. A great example of why you should bring in a design professional with staging experience – everything is placed perfectly to show off teh home and help sell it. Well done!

    The clients were VERY lucky to find you. I too was once brought into a project after a couple started their first flip. They were so ‘green’ and had no idea. The whole process started off horrible for them as they overpaid for the home (in my honest opinion) and had no clue as to the first things that needed to be addressed.

    It’s not like on the TV shows where there is clearly editing and most of the ‘work’ is not shown. The work being creating the design (to sell), procurring the product, setting up the trades, etc.

    Wishing you nothing but success in helping your clients with their flips!
