“Your special touch was the “cherry on top” of our remodeled home and I think it really helped to convert the sale.
To be perfectly honest with you, I was skeptical as to how much staging could benefit the sale of a home. I’d never done it before and both my realtor and I kept it as an option for “down the line” when we’d first put the house on the market. I assumed from the get-go that prospective buyers would be more interested in seeing an open space so they can envision what their new home could look like in their minds. Boy was I wrong! I came to the conclusion that most buyers aren’t as imaginative as I’d hoped they would be.
I didn’t realize how much staging can make a difference until I saw your work. The pictures alone tell the story. As a seller, I even felt welcomed when I stepped into the home and could really envision what it could be if I were to live there. Instead of leaving the decision to stage the home as an after-thought, it should’ve been one of the first things I should’ve done when I’d put the house on the market. Who knows? It might have sold the house even quicker!
Thank you for teaching me a valuable lesson in this real estate “game”. I’ve already received comments on how beautiful the staging was at the house I’ve just sold and I’ve passed along your name and contact info to those asking. I’m sure I’ll be using your services again.”

Mary is extremely talented! She was very easy to work with, flexible with our schedule and very attentive to our needs. Our home was under contract in one week and we attribute that to the staging that Mary did. Highly recommended for anyone that wants their home to show at it’s fullest potential.

Unique Home Staging and Design is a wonderful business to work with. Mary Karakashian is a designer with great experience who knows how to stage no matter what the situation. She just staged our house and made it look like a million bucks! Better than the original. Mary also suggested our realtor and our contractor. Both excellent referrals. You need to contract with Unique Home Staging and Design. You’ll be glad you did!

Unique Home Staging and Design did an excellent job staging my listing. The design selections Mary chose did a fantastic job highlighting the features of the home. I received stellar feedback from buyers who toured the home and I definitely attribute part of that to the wonderful staging! We received multiple offers within the first 4 days of being on the market. Mary was prompt and responsive with all communications and very professional in conducting business. I will absolutely recommend Unique Home Staging and Design to all of my clients and fellow agents!

Renee Roberts – Homeowner
After living in a home for almost 11 years, we didn’t know where to begin staging a home for sale. Mary first provided us with a consultation that really helped us understand what needed to be done. To top of her incredible service, she did what she does best and brought in just the right finishing touches to our home when staging all the rooms for the photographer, not only allowing us to use majority of our own items, but ensuring our home continued to provide a warm and welcoming feel. I
can’t say enough about Mary, her prompt customer service and her impeccable eye for detail. Thank you Mary, for getting us ready to sale. We couldn’t have gotten through this without you.

Mary did a fabulous job staging a 9 year bachelor pad that we had to sell due to a death in the family. The house sold in two weeks! and there were 3 other properties for sale in the same development that had been on the market for 2 months, 6 months and one year! If you watch any of the real estate shows on television, NOONE ever sells a house without staging! It definitely works and is DEFINITELY worth the investment! Mary’s creative vision and use of color pops is amazing!! We are so thankful we took advantage of her expertise!!

I had Unique Home Staging design and install an amazingly warm home setting to a listing that had been listed twice before and didn’t sell. The home with the furnishings and welcoming ambiance created by Mary Karakashian, sold in one week! Mary’s skill for making a house a home is obvious in the inviting settings she stages in each room of the house. No more vacant listings for me!

Mary staged a large, casino night event for me. From selecting the theme, to assisting with invitation design, to planning and creating the centerpieces and mood, Mary was a one-stop shop and managed it all with ease. I was amazed at how she was able to use household items and inexpensive materials to both work within my budget and bring the theme to life. Mary arrived at the event early, with flowers and props prepared and quickly and quietly went to work. The result was a work of art. Best of all, I arrived “stress free” for the event, knowing that Mary had it under control. Leaving the mood creation to Mary was the best decision I had made!
“Unique Home Staging did a great job creating up a warm comfortable setting in my condo. Mary turned the vacant unit into a tastefully furnished home that received great reviews from agents and buyers.”
We wanted to downsize and decided to put our home on the market. I hired Mary to stage our house. She had us put away some of our personal items and brought in a few accessories to change our home from a 1980’s house to a 21st century home. Within a few hours our house was transformed! Potential buyers said the house looked fabulous. I liked the fact that Mary used some items we had and enhanced the decor with some newer items. She was full of fresh ideas and able to incorporate designs and create pleasant fusions with bright colors. The end result was the house became attractive to young buyers and went under contract within 2 weeks after staging! I recommend her highly.

Mary staged a home for one of my clients. Although the home was recently renovated it had a small yard and proved difficult to sell. Once Mary came in and added her personal touches the home practically sold itself. One interested buyer told me that the reason he had to see the home was because the pictures & video looked so warm and inviting. Having Mary stage my property helped potential buyers envision their future home. I will definitely be using Mary again.

Words cannot begin to describe how happy we are with the talent and pure decorative artistic ability of Mary and Unique Home Staging and Design. Mary came into our house that is for sale and staged the home for us using her own materials. In a matter of hours, she transformed the rooms into beautifully decorated and accessorized spaces, like something out of a magazine. She focused on every detail, big and small, and her ability to blend the colors of the rooms to the furniture and the decorations looked like something out of a magazine. We plan to use Mary’s talents in our new home as she has such a true gift of interior decorating and design.
