“I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting Kathi and having her stage my home.  She took an ordinary, datedhouse into one of a modern, fresh look.  People who have seen the house have said that it didn't look like the same house.

Kathi was a pleasure to work with, and was very conscientious about sticking to my budget.  She would always consult me before buying anything that she thought I would have concerns with.

We were in Florida during the renovation, and she served as project manager for us.  She interviewed and foundbuilders, carpet cleaners, house cleaners, window washers.  She selected the paint and carpeting that we had replaced, and she had exquisite taste.

Her staging was incredible. She did things that were simple, but took into account the look I was trying to achieve,and did things that I would never had thought of.  The house is for sale, and I have high hopes that it will sell in short order.

If you are looking for a stager, contact Kathi.  You won't be disappointed.”

“I have no hesitation referring Kathi for home Staging as I have seen her work and am always impressed with the end results. Kathi was chosen by me to assist with the Staging for the Today Show.

 “Kathi’s staging skills definitely helped my home sell. I received consistently positive comments on how well my home showed after she worked her magic! I especially appreciated her sensitivity to my needing to stay within a tight budget, and her creativity in working around the color scheme that was already in my home. I would definitely recommend her services to clients who are putting their homes on the market.”

“Our showings consistently were great—one of the top houses to show, no one ever had any suggestions or changes. The agent who brought our buyers had shown our house to 2 other families because she knew our house showed so well.  In fact, she said ‘Please let the client know that their house was absolutely in the best showing condition of anything I have shown lately.’

Thanks for your help. I wholeheartedly recommend using a home stager, and you did a beautiful job.”

Jessica L., Homeowner



I wanted to let you know that we wrote an offer and got it accepted on the home you so BEAUTIFULLY !!!!!! staged on Mast Road! You did such a great job that my client wants to take pictures today during the inspection so she can remember how great it looks.

Thanks!  It soooooo works!”

This is one of RE:STYLE’s clients giving us a referral:


Kathi’s help was invaluable! She staged our home and it sold to the first couple through (with a signed agreement in 8 days!). Kathi started by making a to-do list, many items of which I would have put on myself, but some I wouldn’t have thought of or prioritized as she did. She kept in contact with me—providing guidance (and nudging) along the way as I worked on getting those things on the to-do list done. We set a date and she and her assistant came back and worked the whole day — rearranging furniture, adding accent furniture, putting up pictures and other accessories, etc.

All the feedback I got from friends and my Realtor was incredibly positive. The house’s good points and charming features stood out and all the “problem” areas were less obvious by the time Kathi was done.

I think the staging Kathi did really helped my house sell quickly. I’m sure that I priced it well, but if it hadn’t looked at its best, the price alone would not have done the trick.

As you can tell, I’m a convert to the benefits of staging—I think it was well worth the effort and expense. I felt like Kathi was my ally in getting the house ready to sell. The whole process was a lot of work for me and having Kathi’s support was really helpful.”

Kathi Presutti was so professional and had some wonderful suggestions for me. She transformed my home into a place that looked warm and inviting and we ended up selling the home four months later. It truly was worth the investment!”

This was the house that had Barb Schwarz raving about RE:STYLE’s work:

“I’m convinced now on the value of staging.  I had a vacant house that had over 65 showings, but no offers. After having the house staged, I received an offer on it from the 3rd showing. Kathi’s ‘artist’s eye’ and marketing background, in addition to her staging training, makes all the difference in the world. I offer her service to all my clients now.”

"After RE:STYLE staged my Pine Creek listing, I never again heard what had been a deal-breaking complaint--that the house was 'too cold.' The staging definitely influenced the sale of this house, and did so in a relatively short period of time. Kathi has demonstrated that she has the high taste level necessary to stage these upper-end listings. And she made it fun!"

 “The home on Woodland looks great, was there yesterday putting up sign and lockbox and measuring rooms. The bathrooms are the most dramatic difference, but the paint, carpet and staging certainly finish it out. I think it will make a real difference in getting people excited about the property.

Thanks for your help, and we hope we get to call you to move your home décor out of the home quickly.”

Scott B., Realtor

Shiela D., Realtor
Ann Arbor, MI


"I referred you to Gay  (photo) because you did tell the truth about that house on Copper Creek! In this market, the truth may hurt  their feelings but it is necessary.

When you left the comments, I sent an email to my client and told them, him in particular, that this is the way it is and it comes from one of the most respected Stagers in our marketplace. End result: the house was just painted on the inside and they removed that ungodly, huge frig. So THANK YOU. When the discussion of a Stager arises your name will be on my lips. And Gay did email me to tell me how much she, too, liked what you suggested and what the two of you did."

Tom M., Realtor
