Initially we were skeptical about the services of a 'stager', but after talking to Yvette and seeing how she would transform our home into a dream house, we became convinced that it was the way to go. And were we right. The house was seen on two different days by many people, buyers and agents alike, and many remarked on how lovely the house looked. Consequently, we sold it within eight day from the day of the first 'open house' due mainly to the marvelous work Yvette and her crew did. I would heartily recommend "Let's stage it" services not only for the great work they do but also for the very personable and efficient service by its owner, Yvette.

Let's Stage It! brings my open houses positive comments about the staging. Her ideas are house specific, putting in the space, what the space needs with a sense of style.

I am a licensed Realtor who has used Yvette to have homes staged. She is professional and timely. The staging is good well done and the furniture of good quality. I recommend Yvette without hesitation.

Let's Stage It has grown so well and Ms.Thoma, the owner, seems to know exactly will make a place look VERY ENTICING.

She took our nice 3 bedroom home a made it look like it just popped out of the box.  In this economy, we felt it would be better if she staged it with a fresh look rather than our trying to refresh it ourselves.

The sum total was larger than all the parts.  Can you believe that even
a fresh bouquet adds to the environment?

Our home sold much more quickly than we hoped.

VIVA Ms. Thoma and Let's Stage it.

I have used Yvette on three listings and received many compliments during my open houses. Yvette has a gift of bringing out the best in a property. She is professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She keeps you updated on everything she is planning to do, and is very personable. She even takes pictures so that I can upload them directly onto the MLS. My last sale just closed above asking price and got multiple offers in the first week. The buyers not only bought the house, their agent also bought some of the staging furniture as a gift !

I am an architect and we had Yvette stage a new home for us for a photo shoot.  She had a very flexible approach to the entire process.  We were able to select many of the pieces and she then developed a staged environment that matched the character of the house very well.  Her crew was very professional and careful during the move in and move out.  I would highly recommend her to others.

Yvette did a great job staging our Townhome in Foster City. She was very reasonable with her pricing, accommodating to our schedule and needs and she made our home look lovely to sell.

I originally found Yvette/Let's Stage It on Yelp. Wow! Her staging is innovative, creative, and the Buyers really respond. I've used her on two properties already, both selling for way over asking. She has a great personality as well, which makes her a pleasure to work with. Flexible, and full of great ideas! And really a master at what she does. She can walk right into a room and know exactly what colors, furniture, artwork, and accents the room will need to really "pop!" A real pleasure to know and work with!

Our house was on the market for 2 days before receiving our first offer for over the asking price, and on the market for less than 7 days before we accepted and offer and went into contract ALL thanks to Yvette and the "Let's Stage it" team!!!!

Selling your home is such a daunting process from start to finish, especially if it's outdated as many homes in the Bay Area are.  We chose to remodel and update ours however we had no idea where to begin.  We asked our Real Estate Agent for a few stagers, contractors, etc.  After interviewing the people he recommended we didn't hire any of them and should have fired the agent as well.  The qualify of people on his contact list was...hmmmm how do I say this nicely, amateur, unprofessional, and ethically questionable.  I asked one "design specialist" what a good paint color for the dining room would be and she said  "Well that like all depends on like what your budget is and like what color you like is and you could just like paint your cabinets like white" and that was her response for pretty much everything, another was over an hour late to our meeting, another literally yelled at me when she saw my handyman removing popcorn ceiling at the sight saying she only works with her guys who were 3x the price and had her 6 foot beast of a son in my face saying if we didn't pick them we would never be able to sell our crappy home (I might be small but let's say he was very apologetic after I was done with him) and the stories go on.  Even our agent had such a sense of entitlement he insisted I drive keys to him even though I have 8 month old twins and a five year old!  WHAT?!?  You're about to make a ton of money get your lazy butt down here and pick up the keys yourself!   Sorry, I'm venting.

OK...so enough about all that.  Let's focus on the ONE ray of sunshine throughout this entire process and the ONLY reason my property sold for as much as it did. I decided to not hire any of our realtors recommendations and follow my own instincts.  I searched for a stager/interior designer and and after interviewing some great but highly overpriced companies, I found Yvette @ Let's Stage it who was a doll and what I later realized under priced.  

She came in, ON TIME, and quickly gave me AMAZING ideas of how to update and literally transform my home without spending every penny of potential profit.  After  all the goal is to actually try and make a profit in the end.  She was patient and professional, on time every time, had a great list of her own contacts and resources, and basically she can do it all.  She went above and beyond her scope to help me knowing that having 3 kids made things on my end very difficult and never charged me a penny more for it. She knows colors, materials and where to find materials for the best price, where to make changes that will actually turn profit and where remodeling would have no financial return.  It didn't matter what time of day or night, she was always quick to respond to questions we had.

Once the remodel was done, we also had Yvette stage it.  I couldn't believe my eyes...AMAZING!  The staging was done in less than a day but looked like it took days and days.  Her team was so careful getting the furniture and materials in and out.  If I could give these guys 10 stars I would.   To sum it up, we went into contract in less than 7 days and the sale price was more than we could have imagined.

Thank you Yvette for how invested you are and how much pride you take and put into your work.  We definitely look forward to a long term continued partnership with you in future projects.

Selling a house can be more work than you want it to be. Yvette and team take a little of the stress away due to the exhaustive level of professionalism. You know they do good work when every agent who comes through says "wow" and wants their card.

I've had the pleasure to use Yvette services for my listing.  She was fantastic, she right away knew what my needs were.  She was very prompt and even worked during the late hours of the day.  The property that I listed looked fantastic and I can attribute that her staging helped a lot for me to secure multiple offers.
Thank you Yvette for your great personality and positive attitude.
I look forward to use your services in the future.

If you're busy here's the short version.
-If you hire anybody else you will regret it.  
-Yvette clearly understands the Bay Area, the buyers and the market in this area and stages your property beyond perfect.  
-She uses luxury furniture, and her decorative pieces are works of art.  
-Yvette's gift of visualizing colors, shapes, designs and ability to put it all together to best highlight your home is unmatched.
-You will get a flood of offers on your home for far more than the asking price.
-You don't have to worry about her scratching or breaking or damaging anything in your home.  Her entire team treats your home as if it were their own and are very professional and courteous.  I noticed they even put little pads of the feet of the furniture so as to not scratch the new bamboo floor we put in.
-GREAT communication from the beginning to the end.
-Yvette is kind and somehow becomes personally invested in each property she takes on as a project.  She is the artist and your home is the canvas and the work she does is BREATHTAKING!!

If I could do this differently the one thing I would change is...I would find a way to try and skip having a selling agent and give Yvette more of the money she rightfully deserves instead of paying 3% to an agent who basically just stood there during the open house.  Yvette you are seriously under-priced!!

I knew right away Yvette and Let's Stage it was the right choice for me, but my husband still made me interview a few other people and boy was that a waste of time.

In our first interview I described what my hopes and vision was.  I was having trouble articulating this vision because this was all a bit new to me, so I was very curious to see how the place would look.  Yvette NAILED it.  It's as though she has some sort of universal translation device that can translate first time seller babble into a work of art.  

I put so much work into remodeling the home, but without the work that Yvette did with her designing and staging it would have been time and money wasted.  She honestly turned my quaint and updated townhouse into a REMODELED LUXURY HOME!! I didn't even want to sell it after she was done with it.  Her level of detail was impressive and the care she took of not damaging our home almost doesn't exist anymore in any business these days.  We decided to sell without a Fridge, and she even filled that empty space.  Nobody even noticed there wasn't a fridge until they looked at the disclosures! =)

Once the pictures were posted on MLS, the place was flooded with buyers.  The open house was packed.  We even had an offer before the first open house just from the MLS photos.  Every offer came in at over asking price.

My agent and I toured other properties to see what the competition might be.  Luckily because of the AWFUL staging from other companies we quickly realized Yvette made my home ONE OF A KIND and there was absolutely NO competition out there and that is also the feedback we received during the open houses.

We called on Yvette to stage my clients home for sale after seeing her pictures on yelp.   Turned out all of her furniture were out in homes but we got a full consultation with her and with her advice, we used the existing furniture and got some decorative items, and the home looked transformed!   Whether you get her for consultation or full staging, you will not be disappointed with the result!

I'm about to review offers on the condo that Yvette staged for me.  My In Box and Voice Mail are full.  I'm facing massive interest and everybody is insane about the way our property looks. Realtors love it.  

I'm not a realtor, but a the wife of the homeowner.  This was my husband's bachelor pad before we married.  I asked hubby for some leeway in deciding how money would be spent on the sales process. Yvette was a key part of my "Master Plan" to put money into the look and feel of the property, in lieu of more help on the transaction.  I have an experienced r/e atty. to help on the back end as needed.

So my plan was to AVOID paying 6% to 2 agents. But instead I opted to pay buyer's brokers their full 3% and use a discount MLS service on my end.  I wanted to see if we could squeeze a good result out of putting more $ into a light remodel (modest by Bay Area standards), then STAGE the place to the hilt. I wanted people to go "Whoa - I want this one! Now!"  

Guess what?  It's WORKING.  Agents and their clients are crazy about this property because not only is it priced well, but it shows like a dream - that's largely Yvette's doing.  Sure, my remodeling and design choices were smart and modern (go me, etc.), but let me tell you... without staging we would NOT be getting the giddy, crazy, high-impact feedback we're getting.  The offers are pouring in.

STAGING WORKS and Yvette's staging is fabulous and well priced.  She works hard, she supervises her crew carefully. Her work is artful, tasteful and the lady herself is a great pleasure to collaborate with.  I've read some odd reviews on here about Yvette's company and a couple of them just don't make sense. I have no previous relationship with Yvette Thoma but everything I see tells me she is responsible and 100% professional. She's got a tremendous work ethic, she stages with high-grade, high-style furnishings. Even her art is good.  And I have zero worries about her crew or their behavior. (Indeed her lovely son accompanied her and he was a fresh-faced, hard working college kid helping mom during his winter break. Nice kid. Nice family).

I'll use Yvette again in a heart beat. So far, her staging is making that magical difference between "good offers" and "OMG, honey can you believe what they're offering?"  (Coupled with letters that describe how they didn't want to leave the place... but move right in, just as it is.).  Staging works.  Yvette works.  Her prices won't kill you. You can trust this lady. Provided you've priced your property right, Yvette's work can really get you those giddy/happy buyers throwing offers at you well over asking.  My husband is delighted.  We love Yvette!
