I have been working with Jo Ann Cureton & Lisa Nicks-Balthasar with Turn Around Interiors for about 10 years now. They are the ultimate stagers, and great to work with. Over the years they have gotten to know my styles and preferences, and each house they stage for me, is perfect for not only my tastes, but the representation of the house and my sellers. They work as a team and each one brings her own design skills to make a vacant home a warm & elegant house. They do everything from furniture to art work on the walls, and prospective buyers are always asking if they can purchase not only the house but the furniture too. They are professional, and warm and friendly to work with, and I highly recommend them.

In today’s market every advantage is needed if you want to stand out from the competition and sell your listing as quickly as possible. I was extremely pleased with the staging job done by TurnAround Interiors on my vacant house listing. They brought in a style of furniture and accessories that highlighted the homes best features and updated an otherwise dated house. The outcome exceeded my expectations and the house showed beautifully to potential buyers. I found them a pleasure to work with and their rates affordable. Thanks TurnAround Interiors, you are true artists in what you do!

This vacant listing was on the market more than 160 days with another Realtor but didn’t sell. In less than a month we had several offers and a contract in place. Staging made all the difference. Time and again potential buyers and agents commented that they immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. TurnAround Interiors’ selection and placement of furnishings is what made that happen.

It was a pleasure working with two skilled stagers who were prompt, professional and pleasant. The unexpected bonus of them periodically coming through the home to freshen it up was greatly appreciated. They provide a valuable and affordable component to our marketing efforts and I look forward to working with them again soon.

Our thanks to TurnAround Interiors, for your amazing staging expertise and gentleness in guiding us through the process of preparing to sell our home of 18 years. After you helped us eliminate clutter, delete and rearrange our furniture and personal items, we wondered why we had not done this years ago! The best part is that our home is still welcoming and “liveable” for us, while still showing beautifully to prospective buyers.

We’ll definitely be using your services in the future when we move into our new home.

Thank you,
~ Tom and Phyllis

This listing that had been on and off the market two years went into escrow 25 days after it was staged by TurnAround Interiors. In this market, that’s fantastic! My clients were both delighted and amazed with the changes. TurnAround Interiors’ professional touches and added staging furnishings brought an updated look to the homeowners existing furnishings. Their creative placement of furniture highlighted all the square footage this property had to offer. Just as important was the care and emotional support TurnAround Interiors gave my clients during the process. Thank you both for an excellent job. I know you went above and beyond on this one and I appreciate it.

TurnAround Interiors showed a lot of style and creative uses of our clients existing furnishings. Once they added their updated accessories this drab and dingy house, that had been on the market several months with little interest, went into escrow in about TWO WEEKS. That’s as good as it gets! TurnAround Interiors' owners were pleasant and upbeat to work with and their fees very reasonable. We will certainly be using them again.

I wanted to take a moment to commend TurnAround Interiors for your staging effort at my listing on Graham Hill Road. The property was on the market 111 days. The home owner had nice furnishings and we felt the property showed very well but hadn’t yet sold in this slower market. We received an offer two days after you did your “magic”. Thank you for reworking her furnishings into a fresh, new look! It is wonderful to have a company that can do this type of work without having to rent furniture month to month. My client is very pleased and again thank you!!!

After sitting on the market almost two years and in the middle of winter, the staging by TurnAround Interiors propelled my client’s home into escrow in about 30 DAYS! Their creative use of existing furnishings, along with added staging accessories, gave the home an updated, fresh look. It really opened up the space and the house showed beautifully. Both the homeowners and I found TurnAround Interiors professional, efficient and wonderful to work with. I am thankful for the tremendous difference they made in a challenging market. I’m a true believer and can’t wait for them to stage my next listing.

The goal for the guest room was to keep costs down, update the look and utilize the space. BINGO! TurnAround Interiors created a look of elegance, openness and warmth. With the use of furniture, pictures and accessories that were already in our home, they transformed the room to an ambiance of comfort and serenity.

In seeing the transformation, I was overwhelmed with emotion. To think TurnAround Interiors could create a totally new “feel and look” to a 12X13 room was completely and totally amazing to me. And we did not spend one dime to obtain these results was more than 100% satisfying. The room looks totally different, feels new and is inviting and comfortable to our friends and family who visit.

It was a delight and joy to work with TurnAround Interiors and we highly recommend their expertise and vision in creating exactly and more what an individual may desire.

As I sit in my newly designed living room, surrounded by all my favorite things, I feel so happy!! Everything has its place and somehow, it all goes together. The first thing I saw when I walked through my front door after the redesign, was a room filled with brightness, cheeriness and happiness! Kudos to TurnAround Interiors for creating a room that I could never have imagined myself. You two are truly professionals and I can't thank you enough. I will recommend your work to everyone who comments on my decor.

Thank you so much for helping me make my house look like it belongs in a magazine. I absolutely love it!
