I’ve worked with Kathy for years because a home staged by Kathy always delivers results— strong and immediate emotions— key to getting both the agents and buyers to ‘fall in love’ with and attach to the home. The result?  A strong and immediate top dollar sale for the client and thus an exponential return on investment.

I have been working with Kathy for a number of years…and she has become more than just a stager…she is part of my team.   She has the vision to see through the “noise” of a room and transform it into something that the market is looking for.  The key phrase there is “what the market is looking for”.  Kathy understands what needs to be done to a house to get top dollar for it.  She approaches each job conservatively, in order to minimize the client’s out of pocket expenses.  She is timely, professional and provides the client with a scope of work and contract so that everything is clearly defined.  Not only is Kathy an amazing stager, but she is also fun to work with!

Kathy is one of the most important people on the Churchill Team. She is our first choice always to stage our homes that we put on the market. She knows exactly what works for the buyers and how to explain it to the sellers. She is excellent at matching the look with the house design. Whether it is modern, classic ranch or mid-century she nails it perfectly! Thanks to Kathy our homes sell quickly and for top dollar.

I recently listed a single family home in Danville that was tenant occupied and soon to be vacant.  I called Kathy and she met me at the house, and made many wonderful suggestions.  The difference in having the home painted with a wonderful color and all of the fabulous furniture, artwork and miscellaneous items made a huge difference.  It was transformed into an inviting and warm home which resulted in multiple offers and an over asking price!

Working with Kathy was a delight! She was responsive, prompt, helpful and very current in her ideas.  Staging is definitely worth the investment.

I have nothing but praise for Kathy.  She is such an integral part of my listing business. Staging is defined in such a broad spectrum from a few decorative pieces added to a home to a complete makeover.  Kathy handles it all.  She isn’t just a team player for me but for my clients as well.  My clients are under a lot of stress and Kathy works with the sellers to help them find the components…paint colors/bedding/lighting (to name a few)…needed to complete a successful transformation.

I never hesitate in recommending Kathy to clients or associates.  She doesn’t tell the client what they want to hear but what they need to hear!

Kathy, thanks again for our most recent listing sale, my sellers were blown away! Great job! It’s great to know that I have a true professional taking care of the property staging from start to finish.

Kathy has a no nonsense approach and she knows what it takes to get a house to sell.  I have worked with her for years.  The results are always the same “SOLD”.  Thanks Kathy!

I have worked with Kathy Burke for a few years now and she has proven herself to be extremely solution oriented, professional, and resourceful. Her work ethic is top notch and she has always gone above and beyond to help my clients’ houses look their very best before hitting the market. She is extremely detailed in her style which helps me in my marketing approach with my clients. She is respectful of what a client can spend and will always do her best to stay within their budget. Having her as an integral part of my team is a true bonus and I look forward to continuing our work relationship for many years. The biggest compliment that I can give Kathy came from another agent that came into one of my listings just recently and stated, “your listings always look so clean, fresh, and beautiful.” I give Kathy a great deal of credit for her efforts. I am only as good as my team, and I know I am in great shape with her on my team.

Sensational Home Staging took a home we could not sell, revamped it and we got 4 offers in a week! Kathy has an eye for the market and the type of buyer who will most likely be attracted to the home and asked us to make changes that got us the buyer and the price point we were seeking.  She is professional and highly responsive.  We have loved working with her!

Kathy…The staging at my townhouse is stunning….I had no idea it was going to look like this…..Wow!! Thanks so much!

– Dan R, Danville

I was so lucky to have the opportunity to have Kathy stage my home.  She staged it so beautifully that I know for a fact, it was part of the reason why my home sold so fast.  I had so many compliments from neighbors and strangers on how wonderful it looked. Thank you so much for everything Kathy, you really made a difference!

~Dana B, Livermore

I couldn’t have been more pleased with my entire experience with Kathy and her staging expertise.  From the initial meeting, to her timely communications, referrals to contractors, considering my budget and finally the end results…everything was carried out with precision, professionalism and style.  Kathy knew what each room needed and what buyers were looking for.  My home sold from the broker’s open house.

Kathy Burke has a special talent for matching the style of the home with the furniture selected for staging.  Each room was laid out in way in which potential purchasers could see how the room functioned and how they would live in the home.  The results were fantastic!! The home showed beautifully which resulted in a lot of interest and a quick sale!

I cannot rave enough about Kathy and her “sensational” design services! I needed help and I needed it fast to makeover a guest room…I was expecting house guests in three weeks! Kathy was willing to work within my budget…reflecting my style…with an updated design aesthetic.  The room has now become a welcome retreat for our house guests and is one of my favorite rooms in the house.

Due in large part to Kathy’s expertise in staging, my home SOLD in just 4 days…with multiple offers! I was so impressed with her decorating abilities and style, I’m working with her to decorate my new home! Kathy is right on the mark in determining the optimal furnishings and accessories to best showcase my home. She incorporates both style and function in her design while being conscious of my preferences and budget.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Kathy to stage our home prior to it going on the market.  We were interested in making sure our home appealed to potential buyers and ensuring a quick sale.  She provided expert advice and offered many suggestions that we, as homeowners, were able to do ourselves.  She staged the home beautifully, bringing in high quality furnishings and artwork.  Our home never looked better. Kathy was pleasant to work with and very professional.  I would recommend Sensational Home Staging to anyone getting ready to sell their home.
