When it comes to decorating your new home and making it not only feel like home but also look amazing, its important to have an interior decorator who really has an eye for style, trends, and making a space feel cohesive. Vannessa came in and redesigned my entry way, living room, master bedroom, and my home office in less than 2 weeks. I can’t believe I wasted a month of my own time trying to decorate it myself, only to feel like the space did not flow well. She is a professional and took the time to listen to what I wanted, incorporate the items I already had, adhere to my budget, and put together a look that will definitely get a wow from everyone. If you’re looking for an interior decorator that is going to make you home feel inviting and well put together, hire Vannessa.

We loved working with Vannessa at Three Bears Home Staging. She staged our daughter and son in laws’ house and we were so impressed with her work that we asked her to stage ours when we decided to sell it. She made our house look fantastic. It was under contract within 2 weeks of staging it. I changed the furniture move out date on Vannessa three times and each time she cheerfully accommodated me. We’d use her again in a heartbeat!

Three Bears Home Staging did an outstanding job for us. Vannessa and her team provided excellent expert suggestions and advice regarding the upgrading we performed to prepare our home for sale. She then provided staging of the house, using carefully selected rental furniture and accessories to make showing the house very effective. All of this was executing in a very efficient turn-key manner, making the whole process seamless to us. The result was a very rapid sale at a good sales price. Thank you very much Vannessa. I recommend Three Bears most highly!!

We were lucky enough to hear our contract painter, Tim Dudek, praise both Robert Rhoades of ReMax, and his wife Vanessa of Three Bears Home Staging. Tim raved about the work he saw the two do. We decided to give them a shot and we are extremely happy with the outcome. I thought I knew how to stage my home but was interested in what a professional would say. I’m so glad I listened. We had our initial consultation with Vanessa and I took notes, she went through every room as if she was the buyer and told me what furniture to remove and what items would be nice to accent the house. I listened and for the next couple of weeks my husband and I went to work making magic. We waited until we made the house ready to put it on the market. It’s been two weeks since it went on the market and two families have seen the house so far, both had praise for the house, beautiful, looks like a model home. We thank Vanessa and Robert for the guidance and knowledge they have brought to the experience.

At our age we thought we knew all about selling homes. Our realtor suggested we have a session with Vannessa Rhoades of Three Bears home staging we thought what could it hurt. To our surprise we learned a great deal that really helped us. She spent the time to really go over all areas of our home giving us suggestion after suggestion to help get the most for our home. I had 4 pages of detailed items. Her professional experience as a marketing communications professional gave her a wonderful ability to full explain her reasons for her ideas. Many we not expensive and easy for us to do ourselves. Thank you Vannessa!

Loved working with Vanessa. She was very helpful. She made suggestions for staging my house and worked with me to get the contractors that could help. She was open to work with me to negotiate some of the changes to fit within my budget and still end up with a result both of us were happy with. I would highly recommend her to anyone needs to stage their house or make a few decorating changes.

Vanessa, Owner of Three Bears Staging, provided an estimate for staging my client’s property. Vanessa was was professional and friendly and made excellent recommendations for improving the presentation of the property.
Estimated pricing for staging the property was reasonable for the scope of work to be completed.
This was my first time working with Vanessa and although my client ultimately decide to not stage the property, I will be recommending Vanessa to all of my clients moving forward.

I had no experience staging a home for sale. I hired Three Bears Home Staging & Redesign by referral and could not be happier. Ms. Rhoades was thorough. She began with the exterior of the home and proceeded room by room to provide me with ways to make the house more appealing, both in photos and viewings. Ms. Rhoades is very personable, excels in diplomacy, and communicates effectively. Definitely a bargain at twice the price! I will recommend her services to others without reservation and am very happy with our decision to seek her opinion.

I hired Three Bears Home Staging to help me create a tranquil home.

Vannessa had many clever suggestions. Some of them were:
– Use four vertical mirrors to make my dining room seem bigger and better lit,
– Declutter certain areas and introduce real or fake green plant arrangements to liven up the space
– Arrange some of my art work and a mirror into a gallery wall
– Choose colors that help create a more cohesive look that is less heavy.

Vannessa helped me rearrange the furniture and it was amazing to witness the immediate improvement!

She was able to find ways to use what I have but also confirmed my suspicions that it was time to let go of some furniture pieces that do not work in my new condo.

She was friendly, constructive, warm and cheerful. She created a judgement free space by sharing her own stories. It’s clear she is very experienced.

I appreciated her thoughtfulness to detail, her great suggestions and recommended resources. She was able to show me examples of design principles in real time on her phone with Pinterest.

I have a list of things to do, purchase and recycle. It’s so good to have an action plan to work from. I highly recommend Vanessa at Three Bears Home Staging if you are looking to stage your home for quick sale and to command a higher price.

Vannessa was such an excellent investment for our property! We had her come through and do a walk and talk consultation. She spent about two hours with me going room to room and making suggestions about how to improve our staging.
Our home had been on the market a month and a half so I was ready to redesign for maximum impact. For such a low cost she gave me lots of ideas about reasonable investments for maximum return in our home. We followed her advice by painting most of the main floor a neutral color and staging every room. It took some time, but it was well worth it.
Furthermore, Vannessa has been responsive to all requests for more information or recommendations since our consultation. We took pictures of our newly improved and redesigned home for the listing on Thursday, photos were up Friday afternoon and we got an offer on Sunday morning! Needless to say Vannessa’s suggestions were well worth it!!! I highly recommend her for any staging service. She is courteous, professional, responsive and reasonably priced.

Vanessa came to our house upon request to offer suggestions on what we could do to get the house ready to sell without spending a lot of money. We have sold several houses in the past so I thought I would know most of what she would say, however she brought great insight and suggestions that I had never thought about previously. I have to admit that once we followed her suggestion of getting rid of some furniture and moving things around, the house looked much better. Several realtors offered feedback from viewings stating that the house was well staged. Vanessa was a pleasure to work with.

Susan M., Houston, Texas

Vannessa was knowledgeable; she helped me as the seller see through the eyes of the prospective buyer. By depersonalizing our home, we gained the “WOW” factor buyers are looking for in a new home. I was extremely pleased. I also like how Vannessa was not pushy. She only made suggestions. The report she prepared was easy to follow also.

Cynthia B., Houston, Texas

I was very skeptical of the staging process. I was not going to follow the advice from report, but after the original meeting and talking with the stager and listening to her advice, I ended up doing everything recommended. I had 3 offers, 2 at listing price within 4 days and sold within a week. Overall a very pleasant experience.
