I valued the way that Anthea listened to what I wanted but also extended me. She added her knowledge and expertise, and I got a real appreciation for my own sense of style. The creativity and flair she had was fantastic, but it was her ability to make the whole process so seamless, simple and stress free that was so great. The value of my home increased instantly. I only wish I’d used Anthea when I moved into my house rather than when I was selling – I almost didn’t want to sell the place after I’d seen how great it could look.
Thanks again for helping me stage part of my home. We were having open homes in order to sell our house, and the comments prior to staging were that my office looked too small for a double bed. I rang Homebase and you did a fantastic job choosing items to set up and quickly transformed it into a cosy bedroom. The next open home went very well and we sold in short order. A professional and friendly outfit all around.
Thank you for the time you spent selecting pieces of furniture to enhance the look of my home when putting it up for sale. Some of the items that you suggested, particularly the desk and chair that turned an awkward space into a little office, really enhanced the home, and the value to potential buyers. Your suggestions on what items to tidy up, remove from the property, along with buying some colourful flowers for pots were also very cost effective and made for a better presented home.
We would like to thank you very much for the friendly and professional service that you provided to us recently, when we were preparing our house for marketing. You have all been very friendly and always willing to help. Nothing was too much effort – even our difficult stair access! It was great being able to hire pieces using your Pick ‘n’ Mix option, rather than being forced into taking a package of a house-lot of furniture. Our living room was transformed and looked quite the part for the marketing photography and open homes we held. It certainly gave the house the added extra that it needed, and we have had a lot of interest in the house.

I am an artistic person and I didn’t want to turn my home into a show home, it was important that it still reflected my personality as we were still living in the house. I wanted to feel that I was listened to and this is exactly what happened. Anthea didn’t bulldoze me, and we were able to work together with my personal style which we elevated to appeal to a broader target market. We were totally thrilled as we achieved well over our dream price. The house looked blooming brilliant, Thanks so much for your guidance.
