Staging Testimonials

“Great news!  We received two offers on our house this weekend (after waiting nearly 2 years), and we went under contract today.  We can’t thank you enough for your help.  I was impressed with how the house looked, and it clearly made a big difference.

We still have to get through inspections and other contingencies, but it’s nice to be over the hurdle of waiting for an offer.

We’ll probably want to keep the house staged with the accessories for at least another month or so, but I just wanted to share the good news.”

– George, formerly State College now North Carolina

(After  sitting on the market for almost 2 years, Room to Breathe staged this home in late November 2011 and in less than 50 days had two offers and a contract.  The average DOM for a house in the $500k price range at this time was over 150…not too shabby, eh?)


“Hi Jessica,
5 months later we decided to list our home for sale and used your Sure Sale Plan to enhance our property. WOW!   We sold it in 36 hours at almost full price, and we are in a higher price range than average.

We followed your plan and the rest is history.  Thank you so much!”

Bob and Debra, State College


“Oakwood Avenue sold in one day…super job!”

-Steven Bodner, REALTOR, CRS, ABR


“Thanks for your staging tips that you provided during your consulting visit.  Just wanted to let you know we sold the house in 1 day for the full asking price of $236,800.

We implemented most of your ideas, from the new “welcome mat”, right down to the birch logs in the fireplace.”

-Mike Chmela, Realtor  State College, PA


“The list of suggested changes you provided us was daunting at first–so thorough for EVERY room!–but as we went through and cleaned, moved, updated and changed things, we really saw things come together in a fresh new way and wished that we’d had you with us when we were first setting up our home!  Overall, our changes cost around $750 and a lot of elbow grease, but netted us a sale in 2 weeks at 98% of our asking price–well above the average for our area.  Thank you!!  I’ve been recommending you to all my friends.”

-Jen, State College/Boalsburg


“Thanks, Jessica.  If all goes well with inspections, my house will belong to another.  I mean it when I say I couldn’t have done it without you.  All best for your coming adventures.”

-Paul Y. formerly State College Boro now Colorado


“You were so helpful in staging our house for sale!  I was pretty sure I knew how to stage our house, but you showed us things that I never thought of. The house looks really good now.”

-Ruthie, Bellefonte, PA


“As first time home sellers, we were rather unsure of the required preparation for sale. Jessica offered clear, inexpensive advice on how to best prepare our home for sale. Also, in the potentially hectic and stressful time of having a home on the market, Jessica was easy to discuss our preparations with. Jessica deserves some of the credit that we had 2 offers and our home under contract for sale within 10 days of going on the market. Thank you.”

-Steve, State College PA


“Looking forward to doing business with you again soon! You are a joy to work with and I admire your dedication.”

–Andrea Wildy, Coldwell Banker


“Jessica, It was wonderful to hear from you and know that you   “checked us out”. We tried very hard to make many of your suggestions work.

As it turns out, we had a contract on the property after the first showing

 a day after it was on the market! Rich and I enjoyed our walk through with you and were impressed with the suggestions and recommendations that we would like you to come sometime to our “new” home and help to organize and get the most out of our home. This is such an exciting AND stressful time in our lives. Thank you so much for helping us and aiding in our home sale.”

With much appreciation,

-Jolene and Rich, Tyrone
