Kathy Burke is simply amazing, As a residential real estate broker & professional, I have been working with Sensational Home Staging & Design for many years now. Kathy has helped me get many homes sold for top dollar in the San Ramon Valley area. She is typically involved from day 1 when I’m listing a home for sale. Her initial home consultation sets the stage for an extremely detailed, planned out & organized process. She consistently delivers on time and her finished product is always amazing. Additionally, Kathy does much more than professional home staging. She assists in the over all design and all the important decisions on potential or desired home improvements prior to staging. This includes lighting, paint colors, kitchen & baths, yards and much more! Kathy will continue to be a go to for me in 2019 and beyond.

Kathy is an amazing home stager. I am a Realtor and Kathy is the best. I always get great results when Kathy stages my listings. She and I discuss wall colors, flooring, carpeting and lighting. All of this ties in to the style of home we are selling, and what we think will appeal most to the buyers of these homes. From there, Kathy does her magic, and brings in the perfect pieces of furniture and decor. She even matches the furniture to area rugs and lamps. Kathy transforms an empty house into a beautiful home. Kathy is an excellent communicator, and is very reliable. When Kathy makes a commitment, I can count on it to be done, and done to perfection.
Kathy is the best in the business! She is a true pro! I have used Kathy several times over the year, and will continue to!
Kathy Burke is a pro. Kathy brings not only good design skills, but a keen business sense that few others have. She can advise and consult – offering alternatives to traditional staging assignments without compromise to quality work . She is direct, keeps her commitments and appreciates both budgets and deadlines . Whether dealing directly with the seller or the real estate agent she is “sensational”.Barbara Hardacre ~ Compass Montclair
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!
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 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 am more impressed with your work each time we work together. I love your ability to make every home show beautifully. My clients have valued your expertise and have been amazed with the transformations!
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.
