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:

Pasadena Home staging furniture delivery

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 our home staging accessories are packed in clean plastic bins. This keeps prevents damage to the accessories and keeps everything neat and clean.

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.

Every piece of furniture, accessory and rug has been chosen to enhance the perceived value of your home or listing

Michelle - Great post!  Love the photos explaining the staging process.  You are definitely the "go to" Home Stager in Los Angeles and Pasedena!

Posted by Sally Weatherley, Vancouver Home Staging, Home Stager Vancouver, B.C (EXIT STAGE RIGHT) over 5 years ago

Thank you so much Sally! You rarely see home stagers post photos of the actual staging process. I thought it would be fun to do.

Michelle - what a great visual of "A day in the life of a stager"!  I go through a few steamers a year - what are you using and do you love it...?  I had a big commercial one last but had it teetering on a ladder steaming curtains when it slipped...and died.  Have a crappy $65 hand-held one from Target now for tall draperies.  ;)

Posted by Sharon Lord, New Home Advisor (Maracay Homes) over 5 years ago

Oh this 'life in the day of a stager" looks way too familiar! Have three of those this week. 

Posted by Shar Sitter, Home Staging and Redesign Minneapolis/ St. Paul, M (Rooms With Style) over 5 years ago

Sharon: Thank you. I will look at my steamers and see what the brand is.

Shar: I thought clients would like to see what happens on a staging day.

Love this MM. You also need to show the picking, wrapping, and packing at the warehouse for the prep work. Waiting for your MMD video ;))

Posted by Lori Kim Polk, Home Stager - Roseville, Sacramento ( Premiere Home Staging : Home Staging Services) over 5 years ago

Hi Lori Kim: Yes, you are right. We have a big staging next week and I will snap some photos while we are packing.

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) over 5 years ago

These are all very good reasons to hire Moving Mountains. I agree with the others too... it's a great little snapshot into our processes.

Thank you, Melissa!

Michelle, love the photos of everyone at work, I especially appreciate you standing back to adjust the mirror, just like I'm standing there with you. Your afters were clean and sophisticated, as was your touch with the flyers. Congratulations!

Posted by Ellen Caruso (Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty) over 5 years ago

Thanks, Ellen. Stagers usually post before and/or after pics, but rarely post what goes on during staging. I thought it would be fun to showcase that.

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) over 5 years ago

Michelle, it was fun to see the behind the scenes photos.  The finished product looks up to date and inviting!

Posted by Sharon Parisi, Dallas Homes (United Real Estate Dallas ) over 5 years ago

Thanks, Sharon!

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) over 5 years ago
Congratulations. Great job, Michelle. Very clever idea with the "inside" look at staging. And, yes, I agree w Lori Kim on demonstrating the picking, wrapping, packing part of our work; the real "work" part! You are such a pro though that I'm sure you will make even that part look neat and easy.
Posted by Patricia Ebrahimi, Home Staging the Washington DC Area from Rockville MD (SHOW SMART! HOME STAGING & Color Consultant) over 5 years ago

Thanks, Pat, for your very kind comments!

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) over 5 years ago

I know this is an old post, but I'm looking at buying a new steamer and can't find the name of the one I had figured out at one point.  Michelle, can you tell us your brand?

That's a great video at the end as well!
