    Terri recently staged a home for me and my client was very impressed with her work. She is very creative in staging occupied homes using the items they already own. She sometimes brings in a few items from her inventory to finish off a room. She knows what the buyers like and will use her expertise to maximize a home’s design strengths and minimize flaws and dated décor. I will definitely use Terri again!

    Let me tell you about Terri Votanek and her company Transition Home Staging. I have worked with her on two very difficult properties that after her transformation I was able to sell them. The first was a vacant home on a busy street. The sellers just moved out and did what they thought was everything to prepare the home including paint, granite & new carpeting. They were prepared for the long haul in a difficult market. I was prepared for months of feedback from realtors saying they didn't like the location. Terri made the home look like a show place. It sold in three weeks. The other was an overpriced home a lovely lake. The home sat vacant for a year. With the help of Terri's excellent taste and eye for design we got an offer in 20 days. I highly recommend her skills as a qualified home staging expert. Denise Nelson, Baird & Warner

    Terri Votanek staged a home in Wauconda for me last year. When I listed it, the home was vacant and I explained to the seller how great it would look in pictures if we had it staged. The seller agreed to pay for it, and it was the best money they could have spent. The pictures looked amazing and people who looked at it even asked if the furniture could be purchased! It was sold and closed under 90 days at 94% of asking price! The next time I list a home that is vacant Terri Votanek will be the first person I call.

    Terri has transformed many of our properties from listings, to someone's future home. I just can't express what a remarkable difference her staging expertise makes.

    I routinely use Terri to stage my listings and have complete confidence in her ability to transform dated, unattractive and cluttered rooms into rooms that show and photograph well. Feedback from my sellers has been very positive; they really appreciate having Terri help them get their home ready for market and I appreciate not having to be the one to be critical of their decorating. Terri has also staged vacant listings for me, transforming blank rooms into spaces that buyers can envision themselves living in. The last home Terri staged for me sold for full list price in two days!

    The first thing I did when I got home is walk thru all the rooms and admire the staging work. The family room is very cozy and inviting!
