Are you a private home owner?

Congratulations on taking the first steps to sell your home. In a recent survey, almost 800 Realtors compared expected sale results of a staged home to the same home, vacant. Almost two-thirds of respondents said the staged home would sell for at least 10% more and at least 30 days faster. Many respondents gave the staged home an even bigger advantage.

Staging will make your home selling process less stressful, will bring more attention to your property and in many cases sell faster and or for more money. Stage Me is here to help you. With our industry knowledge and experience, we can show you how to move your property in today’s market.

Before & After Comparisons


When I decided to sell my home, I chose Sandra and Matthew from Stage Me. They have been absolutely excellent in all regards, professional, friendly and helpful. The furniture and accessories they selected were perfect for the property. They made considerable effort to ensure each room was shown off to the best advantage, with all the little touches making the difference between ordinary and exceptional. Matthew displayed a high degree of skill with the photography, ensuring the property was marketed showing its best features. The feedback from potential purchasers was brilliant and the home sold on auction day for a very reasonable price. I thoroughly recommend Stage Me to anyone selling their home.

We used the services of Stage Me to oversee the renovation of our apartment and then to Home Stage its sale. Sandra was enthusiastic, reliable, had great ideas, operated efficiently and was professional at all times. Her communication was outstanding as she kept us informed at each stage. For all the work that she did, we feel that her costs were very reasonable. We would not hesitate to recommend Stage Me to anyone contemplating selling their home.

I hired Stage Me to enhance our empty unit, after a wonderful transformation by Stage Me our unit looked fabulous. They took enormous care in choosing the right furniture, art work and very good quality soft furnishings to give our simple unit the ‘WOW’ factor! Because of the appearance of the unit, the sale was confirmed by the purchaser when she saw the unit before it was furnished, then she immediately confirmed the sale when she went back the second time.

StageMe were recommended to me when I was seeking market appraisals for my elderly father’s home overlooking the water in the Waimapu Estuary in the southern reaches of Tauranga harbour.  Sandra and her team chose a mature staging for the property to appeal to the targeted market. Once they had put the selected furnishings in place the wow factor was evident and the eye flowed seamlessly from the neutral palette chosen to the serenity of the views over the water. There was a warm sense of comfort and “home”. I believe this contributed in no small way to the expeditious sale of the property. StageMe were a pleasure to deal with.
