If you haven't heard yet, our house in Forest Knolls is in contract and we are hoping to close next week.

Thank you so much for your efforts. You did an amazing job of making the place look like a home. It's no easy feat on a small place 

with oddly shaped rooms!

Thanks again,

43 Allyn Avenue, San Anselmo   

Hi Rose,

You might have heard that we received three offers on the house that were 50K over asking! We accepted one today.

Thank you so much for your help. We would have never thought to set up our living space the way you did. It makes a difficult layout flow beautifully. Our friend Jamie stopped by to see it and she was awestruck.

You have a great talent for staging and we'd love to hire you to visit our new house and give us some ideas for how to furnish it. It seems a shame to have to wait until we sell the house for it to be sensibly laid out.

Thanks again for all your hard work. We will enthusiastically recommend you to anyone selling their house!

You kick ass! The house is gorgeous; it makes me wish I had you design the original furnishings. I just had to have my Victorian (etc.) furniture.

Hi Rose,

Just wanted to let you know that your staging almost made me change my mind about selling my house! You did a beautiful job -- Wow. So tasteful and I love the bits of color, especially the reds. Glad you could make use of my grandfather's chair too.

I wanted to let you know how quickly we got to contract with our sale on Railroad Ave. We had a great weekend showing at the broker’s open house and on the Sunday ended up with two very committed buyers.

Your staging was a big help and the buyer even wanted to keep some of your furnishings!

Hope you’re enjoying this beautiful day! Thank you again.

Working with Rose Steiner at Upstage has been wonderful teamwork to selling my listings. Each of the last three properties she had so beautifully staged, had an offer within two months, despite being on the market prior to that. She was able to transform these properties to appeal to Buyers instantly. Her staging brings quality to the property and Rose is a pleasure to work with.

Pine Drive, Fairfax 

When we first placed our home up for sale, we tried to stage it ourselves, using our very eclectic furnishings. It was a minimal and clean look, but within a few months we realized our mistake.

We hired Rose at Upstage-Marin and when she applied her style and sensibility to our 50+ year old home, it looked current and elegant. We saw an increase in visitors, and they seemed to stay longer. Our house felt welcoming and comfortable! She accentuated the living space so that the large windows became a picture frame and center attraction, exposing the gorgeous view to the Cascade Canyon. Her design strategy was so wonderful that we caught ourselves admiring our own home!

Rose is easy to work with and did a fantastic job! We highly recommend her, and we'd use her again!

Dear Rose,

Thank you for your part in the success of 88 Jewell Street's multiple offer sale! 8 offers! We are convinced that your eye for color, your style in rearranging and your inventory was just what the home needed to 'pop'! Our clients loved you and they felt an instant connection with you. As realtors, you are a gem to have on our team because you really go the extra mile - and without any attitude! A gift!  Thank You!

Upstage-Marin has always made our listings look fresh and appealing, with out that "staged" look.  Rose has a great feel not only for the houses and décor, but she also is a pro at handling sellers and gently steering them towards the best look for their home.  Our last listing that was staged by Upstage sold in 3 days and we attribute much of the interest to Rose's work.

Here's to more business together!
