It all started with a house to sell. Martha did what most homeowners do and called a few real estate agents. Each agent suggested a similar listing price. Wanting to get top dollar and not leave any money on the table, Martha used her experience as a film producer to prepare her house for market: as if seeing every detail through a viewfinder, she staged each room to evoke the emotions of home. After she was done, the agent decided to list it higher. Within hours, Martha received a full-price offer. And the legend of Dress Your House for Success began.
Now, over 20 years later, Dress Your House for Success remains the top selling real estate staging program. And, Martha continues to be actively engaged in making real estate more profitable for agents all across the country.
