“We contracted the expertise of Stage Me to stage and photograph our property for sale.
Sandra and Matthew were wonderful to deal with and exceeded all of our expectations in the presentation of our home. Their attention to detail was impeccable and they worked tirelessly to achieve an amazing result.
We would genuinely recommend Stage Me to anyone who appreciates people that go the extra mile.”

Because Stage Me was the first to pop up in my Google search for a home stager and looked so good, I felt unsure about not comparing companies and researching the matter further but I followed my nose and it turned out to be a fantastic move.
Do not bother thinking twice about whether they are worth the money – they are! Sandra and Matt are absolute experts. They made our property look like something out of a House & Garden magazine. They are incredibly clever at highlighting the best points of a property, seeing it from a real estate sales point of view as well as an interior design angle. They have stunning furniture and accessories, and excellent taste.
We were also very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of all interactions and communication. I highly recommend them.
An ‘easy-as’, ‘no-problem’ excellent ‘way to go’ to make your property look lived in, in a carefully trendy way. The staging definitely lifted the spaces and had a positive contribution to ensuring a good sale.
I used the web to request a quote, let them do their thing, stood back, and waited. We were impressed with the result.
Nothing was a problem. Stage Me were able to get our property staged in a short time-frame. When we had a mini disaster (leaking roof that needed replacing) we were able to extend our hire term at a reasonable rate. This was done willingly and with good humour.
At all points of contact Sandra was a pleasant, happy stager to work with. Efficient and professional.
Getting our property staged by Sandra was a great decision. She created the most amazing contemporary and modern look within our 1960’s bungalow. Everyone commented on how great it looked and I was really pleased with the colour palettes Sandra chose. I gave her free rein to “work her magic” and I was so happy with the outcome. The furniture and accessories she used showcased the best features and made it feel spacious. Her attention to detail was outstanding and she transformed our empty house into a warm welcoming home.
Sandra is incredibly professional. She always kept us informed throughout the process and returned emails and phone calls promptly. We were also very lucky to have Matt take a set of photos which were incredible! I would highly recommend getting this additional service, his photos out-classed those which the real estate company had commissioned. I certainly would have no hesitation using Sandra, Matt and their team again.
Staging is not just filling a house with furniture, but an artistry of creating a feel that a potential purchaser can tangibly experience. This is exactly what Sandra achieved. I wasn’t quite selling a million dollar house but Sandra certainly created a million dollar presentation. I appreciated all of her hard work at delivering a product that far exceeded my expectations and undoubtedly added value. For anyone considering increasing your returns, Sandra has a real talent, in fact, she is what I would call a staging superhero.
Our company has used Stage Me for the past 12 months on a number of properties that we have had prepared for sale and with great success. All properties sold within the first weeks of being on the market.
We have found Sandra and her team to be very professional, affordable and accommodating. I also found Sandra to be very passionate in what she does, giving you confidence that you can leave the property in Sandra and her team’s capable hands, knowing that the property will be presented at its best.
I am now converted. A firm believer that through the use of Stage Me, the properties sell faster. I would have no hesitation in using Stage Me again. I highly recommend Sandra and her team.
We are based in Christchurch and contacted Stage Me to sell our Tauranga property which had been used for several years as a rental. From the beginning Sandra was prompt to return calls, helpful with her suggestions and thoroughly professional and efficient to deal with.
She worked with us to stage our property beautifully, maximising its’ outlook and utilising the space perfectly. The furniture she selected suited the property really well and we have no doubt that this helped potential buyers see the space more effectively and indeed ‘fall for the lifestyle’ that the staging creates.
We have no hesitation recommending Sandra’s company – the service is affordable, professional, offers a high quality outcome and most importantly, really helps sell a home!
Sandra and the team at Stage Me were absolutely amazing. From the first contact right through to destaging, Sandra was so great to deal with.
She kept me fully informed throughout the entire process making it very easy for us to sit back and relax.
I have no doubt at all that the fantastic job they did staging our house helped it sell for over our expectations! We will definitely use Stage Me again in the future and recommend them to everyone!
Stage Me provided us with exceptional service and exquisite taste in the furnishing options they chose. We had amazing comments on the look of our interiors, that only a week earlier was thoroughly unappealing and lacking any sort of character. I can highly recommend Sandra and the StageMe team.
The team at Stage Me transformed a drab-looking rental property into one that I would love to live in. But most importantly I believe it was a key component in our marketing efforts to ensure we achieved an exceptional price. I highly recommend the professionals at StageMe!
I listed an empty beach home with lovely character, but it lacked the finishing touches. Sandra staged the home to a standard that made the home fresh and lively. They did the photos as well and did a great job. I believe we had a great advantage by staging the home and got the home’s true worth through the auction process.
Thank you so much for coming to stage our house prior to sale. The staging was completed within 24 hours from the 1st phone call. Your team was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our house sold immediately and the feedback was very positive. We would use Stage Me if we were planning to sell again
I selected Sandra Batcheldor of Stage Me to prepare and stage my property for sale at Mount Maunganui and gave Sandra an open page to work with, completely following her advice and styling.
The resulting staging of my property was highly endorsed by all of the real estate agents who showed clients through, with comments that were both pleasing and ending in a good result with my property being successfully sold.
My endorsement of Sandra and her team at Stage Me to any clients is 100%”
Sandra is super efficient, highly professional and warmly enthusiastic. She offers useful tips and leaves you feeling totally satisfied that the way she presents the house will hit the touch points for selling. The proof is in Matthew’s photos. My house looked stunning, the comments were very complimentary, and it sold on auction day.
Thank you to you and your team for your help in staging our listing at 23 Rosberg Place, Mount Maunganui. Your choice of furniture was perfect and we appreciated you working to our marketing timeline to stage the property. We are sure the staging helped to sell the property within 5 weeks and to get a good price for our vendor. We will definitely use your services again and highly recommend any owner with a vacant property to seriously consider home staging through your company. Thank you again.
I had my property listed on Trade Me, having taken the images myself, it just wasn’t selling. Hiring Stage Me was the best decision I made – Matthew’s photos were amazing and along with having them design a private sale sign – the property was sold within a week and for more money! My partner also hired Matthew to take photos of her house, it sold within 72 hours. My advice to anyone selling their home privately or through a real estate agent? Hire Matthew Pollard to take the photos. Money well spent, I’m telling everyone!
It was a pleasure to deal with Stage Me, they assisted me in the marketing of a lifestyle property. I found them approachable and helpful in their understanding of the requirements of the property and vendors. The high quality furnishings and photography allowed me to market the property effectively on the internet, in print and at open homes and ensured a smooth sale and purchase process within six weeks of marketing launch. I would not hesitate to engage Stage Me services in the future, especially for vacant homes, and would happily recommend to others.
Stage Me dressed and brought 23 Ruamoana Place to life. Whilst the property oozed character and charm on its own merit, the furnishings and fine details that were cleverly appointed accentuated the features of each room. Many buyers through the open homes commented on the beautiful presentation of the home, and a few even thought the property was lived in. In my opinion Stage Me stands out above other staging companies that I have worked with, as they pay attention to the fine details which finish a room and their furniture and accessory selection is suitable for the calibre of homes that we market. I would not hesitate to recommend Stage Me.
Having used staging companies for homes before, I am mindful of what is and is not a good look in furniture dressing a home for sale so, with some trepidation, I gave Sandra my home to stage. I was very happy with my decision. The home was enhanced and the accompanying photography was of a high standard , able to be used in all modern formats. I’ll be back Sandra.
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.
Stage Me transformed our property, they took enormous care in choosing the right furniture and art work along with quality soft furnishings that gave the property the ‘WOW’ factor! it looked fabulous. I was delighted with the result especially when the sale was confirmed by the purchaser who after viewing it a second time, after it had been staged – immediately confirmed the sale.
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.
We have used StageMe on a lot of the properties we have marketed and they have always done an exceptional job. It has changed houses into homes and on several occasions made the homes look so magnificent that the new owners worked out a deal directly with Stage Me to purchase all of her staging furniture to stay in the home. We continue to use Stage Me on an ongoing basis as Sandra knows how to dress everything from 2 bedroom units to large executive homes, and with her help and our expertise in selling we always get a premium result.
I was most impressed with the photography that you did for the property at Wairoa Road. Your attention to detail on staging the home was great, not over done. It gave the home a good feeling of space and there was a number of compliments I received from buyers about the pieces that you used and the overall presentation. The ability to capture the property’s target market was achieved resulting in a sale at auction. Thank you so much for your work and I will be recommending your services to all my clients that need your touch.
The change in appearance and instant appeal that the staging made was remarkable. The apartment, having been on the market for over a year, was renovated and staged perfectly with a new modern look. Many positive comments on presentation were made by potential purchasers, the property sold four weeks later. Top job Stage Me.
A huge thank you to the Stage Me team for coming to my rescue at such short notice. You guys did an amazing job, true styling ninja’s. I recommend Stage Me 100%!
What a truly amazing job Sandra and Matthew did. We were so thrilled with the prompt service and the absolutely superb results. We would recommend them anytime.
Sandra & Matthew are easy to deal with, good listeners, not scared to suggest options, or make comment if something is not quite right. Good eye for detail, perfectionists and they are always in keeping with the style of the house, I get many comments on where people can get the same things that they see in our show homes.
