From the Allison Stine Team of Long & Foster in Bethany Beach:
"We have been so impressed with Kathleen's staging work, that we require, as part of our real estate listing program, that our clients consult with Kathleen before their houses are listed for sale. Those clients who take her advice see immediate results and their houses always sell fast and without a price reduction. Kathleen is a valuable asset to our business; we wouldn't use anyone else!"
From the Marsha White of Crowley Associates Realty in Bethany Beach:
"I am pleased to recommend Kathleen Barnes . One of my listings was in a great location but needed a fresh look. Her vision and expertise truly transformed the property. Within the first weeks of the listing the property had multiple offers and was under contract in just 27 days on the market. It was not only Kathleen's professional success that contributed to this, but her personal commitment to go above and beyond with whatever was needed. I truly appreciate Kathleen and her team's efforts and will definitely be using her in the future- she absolutely made the difference in getting this property sold!
From Barbara Carlson of Keller Williams of Bethany Beach:
"Kathleen's creative efforts and hard work in staging exceeded my client's expectations in staging his oceanfront condo. My client is extremely pleased! Kathleen has great taste as well. When I saw her finished work, I thought I was stepping into a brand new model home! Because of her efforts, I know this condo will sell very soon, and likely for a much higher price!"
From Denny Mather of Long & Foster of Bethany Beach:
"Kathleen took a dated ocean front townhome and staged it to give it a bright and more inviting appearance which will allow potential buyers to focus on the incredible ocean views. I am very pleased with her professional skills and will most certainly use her services many times in the future."
"Kathleen & her staff are truly fantastic. She transformed our beach home in a short amount of time. She has great vision and creativity but works well within a given budget. I recommend her without reservation. You can't go wrong with Seaside Home Staging" Betsy Taylor
"I have one word to describe how you transformed my 80 year old mother's home- AWESOME. The home was dated with wallpaper as well as furniture and color choices. You brought it up to date and definitely appealing to any age group. The color selections are tasteful and calming. Kathleen, I was pleased you were able to use a lot of my mother's accessories in your redesign. The items that you did purchase look fantastic. I know you made some major changes but even the several simple changes have made it a showplace. My husband and I watch a lot of HGTV - we joked that we need to call Sabrina Soto to come and help us. Kathleen, your redesign is deserving to be on HGTV. Can't thank you enough for coming to help us make the inside of the home marketable." Carol Herr
“Thank you so much for the fabulous "staging" of our townhouse . It is very exciting to see how our furnishings took on a fresh new look! Who knew that I had just the right "stuff", just not in the right places! Realtors that I have spoken to have said that the decor is very attractive and inviting. Your talent and design vision were very instrumental in marketing our home. It is under contract, and the buyers want it furnished as is! I will be happy to recommend your services to any prospective clients. Marie Curran
"Kathleen & Angela were very professional and a delight to work with, transforming our beloved beach house for sale! The process was fun, easy and economically sensible. We highly recommend Seaside Home Staging" Christine Turner
