I was working on a short time-frame to prepare a million-plus property for the market—-the sellers had settled on another home, and were ready to move quickly. I called Monica and she did everything possible to accommodate our schedule —I am so appreciative! All our interactions were professional and constructive, and she was able to provide staging assistance almost immediately.
Terri viewed the home and developed a plan, then implemented as we needed. Her design sensibility suited the home beautifully, and her interactions with the seller were sensitive and most considerate. She brought high quality items suitable to the price range (loved the mirror in the living room), and worked quickly and efficiently — obviously a pro!
The home received two offers within a few days, and sold for higher than list price. I will definitely continue to use Preferred Staging’s services.

Monica possesses an amazing ability to truly see the heart of one’s home and then compliment it with tasteful and appealing furniture and accessories, artfully blending room to room resulting in a warmly unified “lived in” feeling. The market responded exuberantly and quickly to our beautifully staged home – it was under contract w/in 5 days, thanks to Monica’s awesome vision!

We can’t say enough about Monica’s expertise and professionalism – we absolutely highly recommend her!

Monica and her team were incredible! We were listing an old tired home that needed a modern feel (not an easy task!). The house had previously been on the market for 6 months, but with Monica’s vision and new look the home sold right away! They took care of everything with VERY close attention to detail.

Monica and her team did an amazing job transforming my listing from a vacant property to a real showplace! I can see why Preferred Staging is the number one Staging company in the area!

Fantastic stagers. Worth every penny. Professional, courteous, they delivered brilliant staging that helped result in a bidding war that went considerably higher than our list price! Particularly impressed with the artful design and lighting for interior spaces in our walk-out basement. They managed to make a relatively dark den look bright and welcoming without the lighting being too obvious. Tasteful accent pieces showcased the space in the home, rather than cluttering it up. Fantastic job, really. I recommend them most highly!!!

One of the most talented, cost effective, and efficient staging companies I have ever worked with. Monica’s impeccable taste transformed our house into a stunning and welcoming place and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I would highly recommend Preferred Staging. Thank you Monica!

The staging service Monica and her team provided was fantastic. Even my fiancé was impressed and she has very high standards. I got a contract in about 2 weeks and I firmly believe the staging is why it happened so quickly. I wish I had been smart enough to just have to hired Monica and her company more quickly!
— Travis Gilmer
Monica and her team did an excellent job staging our listing. This was a huge house that needed something to make it pop! They made this house look like a home. We received countless comments on how great the home looked and how beautifully it was staged. We were able to sell for asking price! Preferred Staging is an essential part of our real estate team.

We found Preferred Staging in early January, got a great quote the next week, and a phenomenally staged home a few days later. Our stager gave us a great proposal and quickly won over us and our real estate agent, and really transformed our space. Best of all, buyer interest in our house skyrocketed after we showed it with the finished staging.

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with Preferrred Staging’s transformation of our home! The furnishings and accessories are tasteful, warm and inviting - The look is such that it is all we can do not to move back!

Seriously, we are so happy with Monica’s professionalism, and the presentation of our home is amazing! The process was seamless, and we are happy to recommend Preferred Staging!

Monica quickly assessed our home’s content and advised us as to how to stage it effectively. She gave us a thorough understanding of what home buyers are looking for in a home. Best of all she tries to use your existing furniture to its best advantage. It worked! By following Monica’s advise we were able to obtain an offer within two days!
— Julie Nyren
We have used Monica and her fabulous team several times with FABULOUS results! It is an absolute pleasure to work with Preferred Staging every step of the way. The furniture and art pieces are very high quality. Monica can take an awkward space and make it the room visitors love the most after she stages. Her team is always on time, careful with the property and efficient. Monica has worked to meet our craziest deadlines and special requests - classic elegance or mid-century modern? She can do it! Thank you Preferred Staging for being my secret weapon!

Monica is just awesome at what she does! She’s done consults for my clients for the last several years, and EVERY client that has followed through on most of her recommendations has sold their home quickly and usually at or over asking price. Besides her keen designer’s eye and her innate understanding of what buyers look for in a home, Monica tries to work with what the home sellers already own. When she does make recommendations to make changes or acquire items for staging, she makes recommendations that make sense economically and are big bang for your buck items. This plus her friendly reassuring demeanor really connect with my home sellers.
— Houzz Client
Monica exceeded every expectation in staging our home. We were probably one of her more difficult assignments given the fact that our home had many large rooms with challenging shapes and details but also that our home was owned by 3 very different decision makers! She is a thoughtful and gracious listener and a tremendous “coach”.

Monica possesses an amazing ability to truly see the heart of one’s home and then compliment it with tasteful and appealing furniture and accessories, artfully blending room to room resulting in a warmly unified “lived in” feeling. The market responded exuberantly and quickly to our beautifully staged home – it was under contract w/in 5 days, thanks to Monica’s awesome vision!

We can’t say enough about Monica’s expertise and professionalism – we absolutely highly recommend her!

One of these ladies helped stage my elderly client’s home. She was able to transform it from a feeling of “aged and old” to modern and very attractive. With her help, we were able to sell the home quickly, while the other listings that are even cheaper were still sitting on the market. I highly recommend this group to anyone looking to sell quickly.

I hire Monica and her company to consult with my sellers and guide them in staging their home for sale. She is extremely professional, her work is always top notch, and the results are AMAZING.

As a REALTOR, I highly recommend Monica and her team to all my home sellers in Northern Virginia. Over the past several years she and her team have been wonderful to work with on getting my listings ready for the market. From picking color pallets, to lighting fixtures, carpeting to countertops, Monica has an eye that creates the best use of space.

Her inventory of furniture and accessories are of quality and the latest in-style. Typically during my listing presentation, my sellers are a bit hesitant when I discuss “Staging” but by the time I’m finish with before and after photography of Monica’s work, they can’t wait for me to have her over to their home.

I’ve never been disappointed with the end product nor have my clients! It’s no wonder to me that Monica is “one of the best” in the business. I’ve seen a lot of staging companies work and I wouldn’t consider using anyone other than Monica and her exceptional team. If you are looking for Professional, timely, top-quality service, call Monica! She’ll meet your greatest expectations with very reasonable competitive pricing.

After a 12 month stint with another staging company and no sale, my interaction with you from start to finish was flawless. Upon our first meeting and walking through the house to our discussion of my vision – I could see immediately you understood. My biggest concern, as you know, was could you deliver a high end feel with “rental furniture and accessories”. I was skeptical to say the least given the experience with the prior staging company.

However, your website and your ideas about each room completely convinced me you were the right choice. You remained in constant contact with me leading right up until staging day helping me with last minute ideas for the house.

While you made me stay away on staging day (which was very hard by the way! – I’m so thankful you did!!!!

Walking into the house after you were complete was incredible. You and your team literally transformed this house, taking it from having beautiful bones to being a GORGEOUS HOME.

You accomplished exactly what we were looking for with the furnishing and accessories. Every detail is perfect in every room. You exceeded my expectations and the house is so much more than I believed it could be. I know we will achieve our target sale price and I would recommend you and your team to anyone. The furnishing and accessories are high end and high quality. Thank you. Thank you! It has been a pleasure to work with you and you have incredible taste and an incredible eye for design.

I would be happy to remain an ongoing reference for you at any time.
