Luxury Home Staging

Create a Luxurious Atmosphere and Sell Your Home for Top Dollar

“Effectively marketing a home is an art, strategically positioning it for the highest possible sale price. When a prospective buyer walks through the front door and experiences an immediate emotional connection with the home's ambiance, energy, and beauty, it signals success. This emotional allure ensures they can't resist making that home their own, achieving the seller's mission of top dollar, optimal return on investment, and a swift sale,” explains Amy Cavallin, a top-producing Keller Williams Advantage real estate agent.

“The key to such results lies in meticulous staging. Every home, without exception, deserves a luxurious stage to distinguish itself from the competition. It should be the diamond in the rough, stealing the spotlight among its counterparts. Transitions Home Staging, led by Cindy Gasior and her talented team, has been an invaluable partnership and a competitive advantage in my business, ensuring my clients receive nothing but the best.”

Professional home staging transforms a space into a luxurious haven, using exquisite furniture and contemporary styling to captivate attention. A professionally staged home goes beyond mere presentation; it's crafted and packaged in a customized, memorable, market-driven manner. This approach respects the home's architecture while appealing to the likely buyers' demographics.

Cindy Gasior, founder of Transitions Home Staging of Tulsa, is one of the best home stagers in the business today. In her 18-year career, she has staged almost 3,000 homes, including award-winners in the Parade of Homes, and been nationally recognized 16 times through the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). The past two years she was named RESA’s Professional Stager of the Year.  

To stress the importance of home staging, Cindy emphasizes, "Our homes are usually our most valuable assets – only the best should be used in its marketing and presentation." Staging adds an element of sophistication, making the home and its staging feel expensive, accentuating the positive aspects of the house.

The goal of every staged home is to energize, inspire, and motivate buyers to envision their future in the space – and to do so at top dollar. Though professional staging involves an investment, it pays dividends by enhancing the home's value. In most cases, the investment is more than recouped upon sale. In a market of stiff competition,  staging becomes a crucial differentiator. It transforms listings into visually stunning presentations that entice buyers to stop scrolling and schedule showings.

Lush, magazine-worthy photos of professionally staged homes not only impress but also turn a house into the dream home envisioned by buyers. Each picture tells a compelling story, capturing the emotion, dreams, and possibilities associated with the property. As Gasior observes, "If all we were buying is bricks and mortar, just about any house would do. Instead, we are buying emotion, dreams, and possibilities."
