Hello - I'm Alicia Herring and I'm a Home Staging Consultant who helps Realtors help their sellers!
I partner with Realtors to stage occupied listings. Yes, I partner with you and advise your sellers to stage their home using what they already own, so that your listings are prepared for market and look sharp against the competition.
I've seen first-hand how spending your time, money, and resources on a listing that's cluttered, dated, or unprepared for market can be stressful and frustrating. A house that doesn't show well and is slow to sell is something no homeowner or Realtor wants to experience, yet it happens time and again.
With Stage My Listings, my goal is to empower sellers to prepare their home for market. The act of "staging" isn't new, but the way I team with Realtors to help their sellers with staging is.
I use a Realtor-provided staging method born out of one Colorado Realtor's frustration. "Alicia, please help me help my sellers. My listings look terrible!" When Michelle, a Realtor-friend, approached me for a solution, she was fed up with unprepared listings. Her sellers didn't want to pay for staging help (and didn't think they needed it) and they rarely followed through with the fix-up and clean-up advice she gave them. Unprepared listings made for poor photos and slow sales, eating up time, marketing dollars, and her patience. She had had enough!
Out of Michelle's frustration, the Realtor-provided staging method was born! Why not give her sellers staging guidance from an outside professional (me!) before she brought in the photographer and listed their home? Giving the homeowner a Staging Checklist to prepare their home for market turned the situation around.
Providing professional staging to her sellers gave Michelle an edge in a competitive market. Homeowners appreciate a "designer's eye" to help them know exactly how to prepare their home. Michelle is now known for her consistently great-looking listings. Homeowners seek her out as the premier local agent who provides staging that works. In addition to experiencing fast, top-dollar sales she is ranked the #1 Selling Realtor within her Colorado Association of Realtors.
With the experience of helping Michelle, other Realtors here in Western Colorado, and many grateful sellers, I created Stage My Listings so that Realtors in any location have a professional Stager at their fingertips!

You may be wondering... Do Homeowners really follow the Staging Checklist I give?
Yes! the majority of sellers who receive my staging guidance follow-through with nearly 100% of the recommendations! And... they thank me... profusely! Homeowners are relieved to have a professional, outside eye who can give them a detailed list that tells them exactly what they can do to ready their home for sale.
You may also be wondering, who am I?
I'm an interior designer who keeps things practical. I love residential real estate, pretty homes, white lilies, and dark chocolate! I've designed homes for millionaires and I know what high-end looks like, but my heart is in helping homeowners like myself, who don't have millions to spend!
I'm a wife and busy mom of twins and I love making spaces beautiful AND more valuable with simple design.
When I saw a need for a better way to help homeowners present their homes when they wanted to sell, I drew upon my experience as an Aspen residential interior designer, an education in construction and design, and my thrifty nature... and Realtor-provided Staging was born.
Staging so that your listings SHINE and sell fast... and your business grows!
