Los Angeles Home Staging|Why Should I Hire Moving Mountains Design?

What sets Moving Mountains Design apart from other Los Angeles home staging companies? It's very simple. We know what makes homes sell™! How do I know this? Time and again, the homes we stage sell in the first couple of weeks on the market, often with multiple offers, and often at or over the asking price.

Case in point: Last month we staged this Arcadia home. It had been on the market for 6 months with no offers. We staged it and gave the listing agent big, beautiful professional quality photos to use in marketing the home. 2 weeks later, the home is in escrow, having garnered multiple offers!

There are many home staging companies in Los Angeles. Some are very good, some are average and some will go out of business very quickly (as they should). I, as owner of Moving Mountains Design, have been staging homes professionally since 2006. In 2010, I was voted the Real Estate Staging Association Professional Stager of the Year, an international award voted on by my home staging peers. This award is very important to me because I was chosen by other professional home stagers from across the US and Canada. What an honor!

Some other reasons Moving Mountains Design should be your home staging company:

  • Selling your home faster and for more money is our #1 priority
  • We are very experienced and professional - we show up when we say we're going to show up and we do what we say we're going to do
  • We are cost effective and efficient. Most stagings are completed in 1 day, often in just a few hours. Our team works quickly so you can get your home or listing on the market as soon as possible
  • All prices are disclosed up front. There are no hidden costs.
  • We are fully insured - we carry $4,000,000 in aggregate liability insurance
  • All employees are covered by workers comp insurance
  • Every piece of furniture and every accessory is hand selected to enhance the beauty of your home
  • We provide big, beautiful professional-quality photos of your home or listing after it is staged for use in marketing the home online, on the MLS and in print

Potential clients often ask "What happens when you stage our home/" Rather than writing a step-by-step description, I thought you might like to see some photos of us at work on this Pasadena home staging project:

We arrive at the staging location at 9:00AM on the staging day. The staging accessories, artwork and silk plants arrive in 1 truck. The furniture is delivered by the furniture rental company.

All of the furniture is wrapped in plastic or blankets on the truck to keep it clean. There's nothing worse than when a home is staged with soiled or damaged furniture.
