As a Texas Realtor, I have used Three Bears Home Staging on my last 3 listings and will use their services on all of my future listings. All 3 homes had multiple offers, solid contracts within 3 days of hitting the market, and sold well over the asking price. I find so much value in Three Bears Home Staging that I personally pay for the staging services out of my commissions. It’s such a small price to pay knowing that my client’s home has the absolute best chance of making a great first impression on the MLS. I am also taken out of the equation when it comes to analyzing my clients’ homes which can be uncomfortable for the agent and the homeowner. It truly is a win, win, win! While walking through the staging process with my clients as they work with Three Bears Staging, I have gained valuable knowledge that will equip me to better serve my current and future clients. Vannessa truly does have a teacher’s heart and has a gift of presenting information in a gentle yet effective way.

Vannessa is a phenomenal expert! I like to decorate and thought I had a good idea about home staging, but Vannessa’s vision and strategies blew me away! Her personal guidance, responsive timing and a huge breadth of knowledge took my preparations to the highest level. The online consultation process was easy, comprehensive, and invaluable. When I was done I felt like my house looked like a model home and was so confident that the work she and I did together would make all the difference in getting the best price for my home. In addition to being my personal Jedi/guide in the selling process, she also taught me valuable lessons about interior design and color that I will definitely use in my next home!!

Vannessa is the best and she is so easy to work with! The main reason I hired her was because we needed to repaint the outside of our house before putting it on the market, and my husband and I could not agree on the paint colors. I wanted to update the colors and he wanted to paint them the same colors, so I hired Vannessa to intervene. The colors she chose made such a huge difference and gave our house a whole new updated and classy look! We received so many compliments from the neighbors and friends. She also gave us home staging advice when we were selling it. Even though I thought my house was ready to list, she made so many suggestions that were so easy and affordable, that I would not have even thought about, that made a huge difference! She even saved us a lot of money by telling us what wasn’t necessary to do. We had all excellent reviews and she made the whole process a lot easier.

I liked her advice so much that I hired her again when building our new home out of state. I had all the exterior paint colors picked out and was ready to paint, but decided to hire her because I was a little nervous about some of my choices. Thank God I hired Vannessa, because once again she saved me from making some huge and costly mistakes! The painters started painting the exterior today, and I ended up with the exact color I wanted, but if I had gone with my own selections, I would have ended up with something different! I liked her choices for the exterior so much, that I hired her to help me with the interior paint color selections. Even though my choices would have been OK, what she has chosen will be so much better!

I trust Vannessa‘s recommendations so much, that I have recommended her to several friends and family members and they can’t wait to hire her after seeing what she has done for us. She takes the worry out of all the difficult decisions. I paid so much more in the past for interior designer help when building homes, but Vannessa’s services are much more affordable and I am just as happy with the outcome, if not more so. I highly recommend her and you will not be disappointed!

It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Three Bears Home Staging. I have worked with Vannessa and her team on several projects, both large and small. Vannessa has always offered insightful and cost conscience advice. She works hard to blend a client’s existing furniture (saving the client money) with those small additions needed to convey just the right image for selling the home. Furthermore, Vannessa has an outstanding eye for color coordination and a great knowledge of current trends. In addition, she knows all those little tricks that make one home stand out above others. I can state absolutely state that because of the her work the listing sell faster and for a higher value. If you have a listing and wish to offer your clients the best path forward to selling their home, I urge you to call Three Bears Home Staging. Sincerely, Chris Cantele RE/MAX Westside

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.

Having worked with a home stager in the past, we understand its importance in the home selling process. When we recently needed to sell our home, we chose Three Bears Staging. Our experience with Vanessa not only impressed us from start to finish but surpassed our expectations. She brought out the full beauty of our house and provided us with practical advice down to the smallest of details, some costless, and noted which items were the most critical versus nice to have. This allowed us to choose what improvements to make … and because the advice was so practical we wound up doing it all! Not only that but Vanessa was great about providing feedback even after her visit when emailing her pictures of various décor and furniture placement. And it made ALL the difference – all the feedback from showings were excellent … the house looked like a model home! Our house was under contract in only ten days and we truly believe that it would not have been possible without Vanessa’s outstanding service and advice!! I HIGHLY recommend Three Bears Staging and not just for selling a home! We will definitely be using her again in the future.

We had a great experience with Vannessa! She was very thorough during her walk-thru of our home while giving staging advice. We followed all of her recommendations and had an offer on our home after only 10 days! I definitely plan to use her next time we sell a house.

As a realtor, Three Bears Home Staging is my go-to for clients’ staging needs. Vanessa is very knowledgeable about the market and what buyers want. She is easy to talk with and is always positive. I like that clients leave with a written packet of selling information as well as an action plan for fixing staging problems in their home.

When it comes to decorating your new home and making it not only feel like home but also look amazing, it’s 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 entryway, 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 your home feel inviting and well-put together, hire Vannessa.

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.

Vannessa went above and beyond to stage my mother’s house when we were ready to put it on the market. She made the process enjoyable, as stress-free as possible, and the house looked incredible afterwards! We got a great offer at record speed and I have no doubt it was from investing in Vannessa’s services. She is highly professional, efficient, and the top of her field. I would definitely recommend her to anyone selling their home!

What a find! My home has been on the market 100 days with no offers. I needed fresh ideas that would not cost me a fortune. Three Bears offers a terrific walk & talk consultation service. Vannessa was quick to reply to my inquiry. She let me pick a time that worked well with my schedule. And her ideas.. WOW! I am really happy Three Bears visited my home.. I only wish I had obtained Vannessa’s professional counsel earlier in the process.

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!

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. Vannessa 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 Vannessa and although my client ultimately decide to not stage the property, I will be recommending Vannessa 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.

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 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.

It was obvious to me from the beginning that Vannessa has a natural creative talent & ability when it comes to home decorating & staging! I’ve seen this in her own personal homes as well as in many of her clients. She seems to transform even the simplest room to make it look like a showplace and of course, makes such a difference in how it comes across to a prospective buyer!

Ms. Rhoades was efficient, her ideas for each of our rooms abundant and creative. She gave each room the same detailed attention, and was precise on all measures in each room down to changing up hardware to tie in the room’s décor. From furniture arrangement, coordinating with my décor already owned, and provided an array of unique ideas for adding any new furniture purchased down to changing up our old furniture with simple redesigns that turned each room she redesigned into something we positively love.

I strongly recommend Vannessa Rhoades of Three Bears Home Staging and Redesign. She has done an excellent job of providing advice, ideas, and counseling for several of my listing clients. Vannessa will sit down & discuss features and amenities of someone’s home. She then walks the property with the owners room by room as well as the exterior to suggest options and recommendations.

Vannessa has an amazing talent for giving your home that “Wow” factor we all need when selling a home.

Vanessa was a pleasure to work with when staging my home for sale. She was very knowledgeable, professional, thorough and patient. Through an initial phone consultation,she advised me upfront what to expect during our walk-through. She took the time to explain the objective and importance of staging and the value I could get out of it. She was very detailed in our walk-through, providing great advice on décor, furniture positioning, etc. Small things I never would have thought of that were easy and inexpensive to implement, but made big differences in the look and feel of the home.

Vanessa was also very nice to offer to chat with me after the walk through if I had questions or wanted to seek her input on décor choices. I did end up sending her several pictures of things I had done and she provided additional good feedback and input. Loved working with her and took away great ideas in home decoration that will go with me to my new home.
