Goodbye, 2016. Hello, 2017!

As the new year starts, we always pause for a moment to reflect on the last year. To say a lot happened is an understatement. What did you do in 2016? Did you whip? Did you nae nae?  Did you dab? Did you do the mannequin challenge? Is it too late now? Moving on...

For us, the start of the year feels like a whole new world (cue Disney song). We moved our office and warehouse at the end of the year and couldn't be more excited about our new space.  Moving was a BIG undertaking. But we planned ahead, mapping out every area of the new warehouse. After multiple iterations, we had a finely tuned space plan and a lot of hope for a smooth transition. 

On the flip side of the move, we're pretty pleased about how it went and are oh-so-happy to be at our new address! (You can see it at the bottom of this newsletter.) We've doubled the warehouse space to accommodate our increase in staging inventory, and the office now includes a light-filled conference room for meetings with our design clients. One staff member was seen running through the office with his arm stretched out, displaying how much room there is in the new space. If only we had it on video and add airplane noises.  

Our beautiful new conference room!

Are you thinking of moving this year? We've heard some clients say they've put off selling their home just to avoid moving (you know who you are). We get it. The thought of moving can be daunting. And the precursor to that, preparing your home for sale, can be downright overwhelming. 

But we can help!

We can assess your home, identifying the positive features to highlight and the possible objections to overcome. Whether your home needs updating or just a bit of polishing, we can create a roadmap to get there. If you'd like more details, call or email Sara. We'd love to hear from you.  

If you talk with Sara or anyone of our stagers, they'll tell you the first step in preparing your home for sale is de-cluttering and organizing. Click here to see our 4-box method on how to sort and handle all the 'stuff' you knowing (or unknowingly) own.  

Happy New Year, everyone, and we look forward to partnering with you in 2017!

P.S. One of our New Year's resolutions is to send out our monthly newsletter EVERY month. We hope you enjoy them. However, you can unsubscribe any time by clicking the link at the bottom of this email.
