"We are so lucky to have found Melissa! For 5 years now, we have been using Melissa for staging consultations and to bring in staging for our listings. She makes our clients feel comfortable about what needs to be done for their home to show in its best light. Melissa has been a huge part of our client’s success! I am confident that without Melissa, they would not have sold for as much money or as quickly. There are so many times where she will rearrange a living room and our clients say 'Wow! Why didn’t we have it set up this way all along?'"

"Melissa’s passion and energy for staging is amazing. Her attention to detail and knowledge of current decorating trends is outstanding, and she is an asset to us every time we hire her! Many clients we have introduced her to during their sale process have gone onto hire her to decorate their new home; which shows to how well they like her work!"

"Thank you so much for your great service, high quality furniture, accessories, and decorating touches. Although the home was in great condition, it felt cold and empty. The staging made all the difference in the world! It felt warm and appealing and sold for over list price with multiple offers in less than a month. The owners said that you were very nice to work with and felt comfortable having you in your home during the set up and tear down process. I highly recommend that future clients use your services to get top dollar for their homes."

"My clients LOVE Melissa because she’s honest, yet kind, but then also FUN! Melissa is best at seeing a space and having vision in the most difficult rooms and homes. She can always turn something ugly or difficult into something beautiful and functional. I LOVE to work with Melissa because she has a sincere passion for what she does, she treats my clients with respect, she’s sincerely genuine and I’m a genuine kind of gal. She’s beautiful inside and out and makes all that she works with the same...beautiful! ...AND, whatever listings she touches of mine...they sell FAST! (that helps too)."

"Trend Staging was recommended to me by my realtor and I'm so happy I decided to go with them. The entire process was easy from start to finish, communication was great and the end result was fantastic. We were able to view the comments from each house showing and every single one remarked about how wonderful the home looked. The pieces of furniture and accessories looked great and I truly believe what helped my home sell as quickly as it did. The house simply looked nice in a way I would have never imagined. It was wonderful to work with them. Thanks Melissa!"

"What you did is truly amazing! I love the way you enhanced the space and made the most of its great features. It is amazing how changing things out, moving things around, just opened everything. Your eye for details, unique ideas with space plus the creativity really changed the whole look of the home. Your services were definitely worth the small expense, as our home sold in 5 days. You did a beautiful job and our house looked like a model home."

"Melissa, I've moved your business card about a hundred times since our home closing in May, 2014… with the intent to write and again say 'thank you' for the beautiful job you did staging our property. Can't thank you enough for the fun, positive way you approached staging our property on Jenkins Way in Lakeville. You are so gifted at what you do… and your moving crew (aka husband) was prompt, neat, careful, fast… I truly have only great things to say. I pray your business is continuing to grow - if you ever need a reference, I give you 5 stars. It's hard to put into words how prepping an empty house for sale feels… my eyes started to see only the flaws in the empty rooms. After you staged our home, it seemed to 'come to life'! It made us excited. You made our realtor excited… we got extremely good feedback on the quality of your work from everyone who came through our home. It hit me most, while sitting at our closing on the sale of the property, and the new buyer says "we just loved how your home was staged. It gave us great ideas on how to decorate." Yes, you were some of the best money we spent in the sale of our home. Thank you again!"
