We just wanted to take some time to express our sincere thanks for your work and vision.
Your assistance in the remodeling was outstanding. You helped us pick paint colors, carpeting, flooring, bathroom fixtures and more up-to-date lighting, where needed. Each purchase was itemized and approved by us.

When it came time to stage the home for sale, you were able to make my parents’ old furniture look great, moving things around, adding flowers, knick-knacks and other modern decor. You paid attention to the details so we didn’t have to.
Carmela, you truly took a tired old home and turned it into a place of beauty! Thank you so much!

Carmela Abella created a vision for my home that I would have never dreamed. Not only is Carmela a talented home stager, she has a professional way of communicating her vision while making you (her clients) feel empowered with the choices that she suggests. Carmela walked into a store with me and chose accessories for almost every room in my home from the dining room to the master bedroom. My husband and I appreciate all Carmela has done to make our home more beautiful.

I never realized the potential of my home until I met Carmela. She showed me how to accent the positive and disguise the negative with her strong sense of design. She worked with me , incorporating my vision for my home, and did not make changes based solely on her ideas. My house was transformed from into a dream home because of her unique capabilities. What a difference!

“My husband and I were skeptics to the whole staging thing, thinking it was only for luxury homes. However we knew that the market was going to be difficult. We decided to call Carmela after I found her online website. We believed it could not hurt to hear what she had to say. She was flexible with our hectic schedules and came that same week. Keeping in mind we had to get the house on the market in 4 weeks she did a very thorough analysis of our house. Within 2 days I had a detailed report with reasonable issues that could be addressed. My husband and I worked feverishly for 4 weeks to address the major issues she had brought up keeping in mind our budget. The house went on the market on a Thursday and the first open house was Sunday. By Monday evening two offers were in one higher than we could have expected. STAGING WORKS……..We are now firm believers. We can’t wait to move into a new house and would not hesitate to call Carmela to help us design it. Thanks again Carmela”

Thank you so much for your assistance in selling my home. Today’s market has a glut of houses for sale, and the enhancements you provide through your staging and design provides prospective buyers the much needed insight into what the home for sale will look like for them. You took an empty house and made it into an appealing home. I have received compliments on your work and am hoping I can soon reap the benefits.God Blessed you with an amazing ability to design and thank you for sharing your talent.

I just wanted to let you know that I FINALLY got the bedrooms painted! I love, love, love the colors you picked out. They came out amazing. I think my favorite is the twins room. I’m sure you don’t remember the rooms or colors, but if you check your records you will see, so thank you sooo much. You did a great job! The only problem is now the rest of the house looks horrible.

ohn and I were very pleased to have you come and give your expertise concerning staging our home. You have a great insight for what will make a good first impression. John and I have discussed your sugesstions and are folowing what you have sugessted. We have also recommended you to one of our friends who will be ready late fall for a consultation.

Carmela has unique vision. She can transform the ordinary into extraordinaire! Her knowledge of Room Design, Color and Decorating concepts are conceived by the careful attention she gives to her clients....she actually listens to what you want to achieve, what you want your home to look like, how you need your home to function. She is networked with a team of highly skilled, responsible and dependable contractors who work in the same professional manner. I highly recommend Carmela for any redecorating, renovating or refreshing that your home can use.

As far as selling my home goes, I did not enjoy the experience EXCEPT my experience with you. I have raved about it to everyone! An added unexpected bonus was, all the disagreements my husband and I avoided during this process. Thanks to your confident professional guidance, we were both “on the same page” when it came to decorating and showing the house. Priceless! We were very proud about how the house looked and the agents were proud to show the house. Now I am unpacking all the staging items I brought and I don’t regret a single purchase. Thank you again-I learned a lot!!
