The Refreshed Home: Good Cop or Bad Cop?

Good Cop/Bad Cop is a time-honored cliche, a tool used to shake up the equilibrium, and prod someone into action. The Good Cop is supportive, looking out for you; the Bad Cop says the tough things that need to be said.imagesCA2KSV7E

Home Stagers often wear many hats during the course of even a consult (figuratively, of course-I hate hats in real life!)- Bad Cop is one of them…but Good Cop is another.

The Refreshed Home functions as the client advocate, only and always. My success depends on your success. If I can smell cigarette smoke, teen age boy or litter boxes;  if I see old bed or bath linens and sad wall colors, I will tell you.

On the other hand, I understand the struggles and conflicts that are part of the selling/moving process. There is no judgement…TRUST ME, we ALL have some equivilant of stinky, messy or outdated in our lives or spaces- my job is to help get you, and your property past it all, so buyers will quickly and easily decide your property is worth every penny.

Preparing a property for sale, and keeping it ready to show is a discipline…but like any good cop show, what seems baffling and  uncertain early on can also be quickly wrapped up with some focus, and hard work.( Just no real hats!)

If your Westchester County listing is…well, listless, or if you’re getting ready to sell, be sure you’re putting its best foot forward:  Have a five minute conversation with me about how The Refreshed Home can help get it noticed, and SOLD!
