What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“I had the privilege of mentoring Karen when she entered into the home staging industry many years ago through my certification training at the Home Staging Resource. Having trained thousands of home stagers over the last fifteen years, I knew right away that Karen would be highly successful in this field. Karen has an innate ability to read a home as well as the home seller and communicate very clearly the ‘whys’ of home staging. Details matter when it comes to staging, so understanding the ‘why’ of decluttering, depersonalizing, and, most importantly, the ‘styling’ are the first steps in getting the best price for your most valuable commodity. This book is your how-to manual for breaking down the selling and staging process, so it feels less overwhelming and more doable…you got this.”
Audra Slinkey, president of the Home Staging Resource and the American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners

“Karen Prince’s Secrets of Home Staging is a must-read when selling your home. This book is a beautiful tutorial that will help you sell your home faster and for more money. If you follow Karen’s advice, you will transform your space into every buyer’s dream home.”

Cassandra Aarssen, professional organizer and author of Real Life Organizing, Cluttered Mess to Organized Success Workbook, The Clutter Connection, and The Declutter Challenge

Realtor Endorsements

“I love working with Karen! She really knows how to make a house appeal to buyers. Sellers are often skeptical of staging in general, but her professional and friendly manner puts them at ease. After the home is staged, they are often astounded by the transformation. Most importantly, they feel that the money spent on staging was well spent. Her staged homes show better and add value in the eyes of the buyer, buyer’s agent, and the appraiser. I recommend her to all of my clients!”
Gina Cipriani LaPlaca, licensed real estate salesperson

“I have worked with Karen Prince of Rivertowns Staging for many years. She is professional, a pleasure to work with, and has an eye for style, detail, and color that is unsurpassed.”
Pamela Shufer Eskind, real estate associate broker

“When I first met Karen, she wasn’t a home stager—she was selling her home and I was her agent. Initially, I was very impressed with how her home looked and how she staged it herself. Then, when her house went on the market, the buyer response was phenomenal! Her home got offers well beyond my expectations. From then on, she started staging for my clients and developed her business. Karen’s advice to my clients is invaluable. They love her, but more importantly, they love how their homes sell.”
William Ford-Sussman, licensed real estate salesperson

Home Staging Client Endorsements

“Although skeptical, I hired Karen at the urging of my broker. When she completed the staging, I barely recognized my house—it was gorgeous! Most importantly, I received multiple offers and it sold for more than I expected. Karen did a terrific job and was a pleasure to work with. I even hired her to choose the paint colors for our new apartment.”
Lynn Pagliaccio

“She’s simply the best—a true professional with the ability to meet deadlines and work within all types of budgets. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rivertowns Staging when we were staging to sell our house. Karen has a great eye and style, and her recommendations were spot on. All the realtors and house hunters mentioned that the house ‘showed beautifully.’ At one point after she worked her magic, I was VERY tempted to stay! I would highly recommend using her services for staging your home in advance of selling.”
Emi Battaglia

“Karen at did an amazing job at advising us on how and what to declutter, choosing paint colors to enhance each room in our house, and making our home look its very best for selling. It was definitely a worthwhile investment of our time and money—our house sold quickly in a difficult market.”
Mark Keefe

“Karen’s design and understanding of the market were key components in my house having six bids in seven days; we were in contract on the tenth day, and the final bid was well over asking.”
Todd Matlovsky

“Karen is great! She is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole process of redecorating or staging your rooms effortless…. She had great ideas and was able to implement them quickly, efficiently, and, most important, affordably. Highly recommend her!”
Lauren Landau

“Karen is an incredibly talented home stager. She is amazingly delightful to work with and has utmost respect for a client’s budget and deadlines! She immediately gained our confidence and we implemented her recommendations enthusiastically, which resulted in a quick sale of our home. I would recommend her with all my heart!”
Susan Uhlick-Richman

“Karen has an innate sense of style and a keen eye for color. They transformed my cozy home into a wonderfully chic and inviting space. Knowing they were attending to every detail made for a less stressful selling experience, and my house sold in less than two weeks! I was so pleased with their design that they are helping me decorate my new home.”

“Karen is a consummate professional who on our walkthrough pointed things out which we had never thought of… The day after the public open house we had five offers; within two days we had three more! Receiving and accepting an offer of almost 10 percent over the asking price is proof of the importance of staging, particularly with Karen.”
Jeffrey O’Donnell
