Razan S.

Everyone has a gift and mine is not home decorating!  However, Dora does have that gift of turning any ordinary room into a showroom.  She is very attentive to your individual needs and designs your home interior according to your taste.  She will never tell you to throw something out.  She’s great at taking your current furniture and adding a few of her personal touches here and there and creating a warm, cozy atmosphere for you and your family.

She’s very professional, and is on top of everything.  When she says she will do something, she means it.  It’s so nice to have used her services and I highly recommend Dora for any staging needs or even if you just want your home to have a nice face lift. 🙂  She simply is the best and I guarantee, you will not be disappointed!

Dora and her team are magnificent. The short version:
1) She’s prepared= saves you time
2) She’s thorough: contract was clear with a descriptive item list for each room/area
3) She’s a perfectionist/artist/creator: the house looked fabulous- like a model home.
4) She’s good with change/solutions: changed your mind? (want full vs partial staging?) she is very responsive/flexible
5) She has a great team: Team is professional, clean, courteous, and careful
6) Pricing is reasonable, and an exceptional value for the quality.
7) Results: House got multiple offers over asking

The long version:
1) Preparation: Dora responded quickly to my inquiry, and came prepared: She took pictures of the vacant space on her camera, and not only advised on changing one of the wall colors (which was a shade of yellow) to a neutral shade, but even had her color chart ready to show which color worked best in the home.
2) Thorough: She later provided a written estimate detailing what items she would bring for each room, the length of time included in the staging fee, and amount of notice she needed to destage
3) Perfectionist Artist: She had an initial plan, but then later, I noticed it evolved. If a rug didn’t look right somewhere, then it wasn’t there, but if an area still needed ‘something’, she added extra little side tables to make it more cozy. Also, you know someone is great, when they can figure out a problem no one else can. We had an area of the house that was hard to stage. I looked at pictures of other homes that had sold with the same floor plan to see what other realtors/sellers/stagers put there. Others had left the spot empty. Dora made the space into an attractive seating area.
4) Flexible/Solution-oriented: I initially asked for a quote for a partial staging, but later, when we realized we might want to do a full stage of the home instead of a partial- she consulted on the pros and cons, and gave us an estimated budget, and then when we decided to do the whole house, she revised the quote for us.
5) Team is awesome: Her team was very clean and careful on both the move-in and move-out. When it was time to destage, Dora was quick to get her team coordinated to move out.
6) Budget friendly: I got multiple quotes. She wasn’t the lowest price, but also not the highest. She stood out as an exceptional value for the length of time we got the staging, the amount of staging, and the quality of the furnishings, service, and expertise.
7) Results: 1st day after broker’s Open House Tour had two requests for preemptive offers, and the following week when offers were due, got multiple offers over asking.

Working with Dora and her team was a pleasure- Thank you!

Dora is nothing short of FANTASTIC! Very professional, knows interior decorating like no one else, and staged my home like a model! If you’re thinking about staging your home, TALK TO HER! She has the statistics on what staged homes sell for versus non-staged homes. The numbers are staggering. Seriously… if you want to get the most out of the sale of your home, call Dora!

I have had the pleasure to work with Dora and her team for the last 4 years. Every home she has staged for me (50+), from small condos to large Vineyard estates, the one thing the home owners always say is “I don’t want to move anymore “. That’s the magic of Dora’s staging. It is perfection. Thank you for making me look real good all the time.

Down to the details! Dora staged our condo in Pleasanton which is going to go live in a few days. She basically took what I had imagined in my head and over exceeded my expectations. I didn’t even tell her my favorite color was teal, she used it and I think she got the idea from the small hint of the backsplash from the kitchen. She did an amazing job using the perfect furniture to make the space look roomy. She listened to our ideas as well as put in a lot of her ideas and expertise in all this. She added so much small details that really made a difference. It really looks like a model home but also looks lived in. She did a fantastic job, committed to our timeframe and was very flexible through the process. I would be more than happy to recommend her to anyone that needs a stager. Dora really has an artistic eye and you can tell she’s very experienced in this industry.

I have a small 2-bedroom condo. Dora came over and marked her magic blue tape around my home to prepare for the staging. She is very knowledgable in color palettes and what will go well with your home. I can’t wait to share the pictures of before and after. Thank you Dora for your ideas and the blue tape!!!!
I look forward to the transformation.

What can I say other than customer service is alive after all and at a time when every person you deal with is only after the money. With Staging by Dora you deal with the owner Dora herself and her number one Patti.

I was in a pinch for a home we were selling and the contractors were running behind. With only 4 days before we were to go on market my stager whom I’ve used before could not meet my deadline because of over booking. I called Dora that day and was out there to the property the next morning and 2 days later I had the kitchen, Living room, family room, den, master bedroom and 2 1/2 baths staged and ready for market.

We were on market for all of 8 days, with multiple offers and settled on an offer $8000 over asking price.
Staging by Dora has won me over and if I may leave a piece of advice as her business with grow for sure: Never take your clients for granted and stay hungry.

I have had many great experiences with Dora, she is professional on time and has an amazing talent. I am a Realtor and part of my service is to provide my sellers with staging designs to make their home warm and inviting to buyers. I have called on Dora’s help on many of my listings, and I have never been disappointed. She will make a small area look bigger, a tired old look brand new and she sets up furniture in a way that makes people want to come in and sit down and imagine themselves in the home. Before I call on the professional photographers I call Dora first so all the pictures would look like they are out of a magazine. I believe staging makes a home sell for more therefore getting the right stager is essential to any Realtor.
Dora has always been on time and is very in tune with what a home will require to make it shine.
