If you have had a listing with Michele Marano you probably received the fringe benefits of her creative eye on design. Michele Marano combines her design expertise with her listings and “prepares her listings to sell,” and boy have they! Those who have recently used her real estate and design services have received contracts from first viewers of the properties.
In today’s market, why wouldn’t you want your home looking fantastic before it goes on the market. Most agents do not offer a service as such. Michele will utilize her time and do what is necessary, after the listing is taken, prior to the home going on the market and make it look fabulous. Her time is the key here and she does not charge. If you need maintenance work, furniture, paint, etc. she can make arrangements for you and those costs would be your responsibility.

First Impressions Mean Business
When it comes to shopping for real estate, a first impression is a lasting one. This is why it is so important to make sure your home looks attractive, starting with the exterior. Driving by a home can leave a first impression on a person. Does your home look appealing enough on the outside to initiate a view of the inside? It should. Your home should look it’s best amongst other homes on the block, otherwise it will automatically stand out and be compared to more attractive, well maintained properties.
Now that you’ve made a good impression on the outside of your home, it’s important to maintain their opinion as they tour the inside. When entering a home, the first impression is usually determined by the “smell” or “odor”. If you cooked the night before and a heavy odor remains, you may want to take extra precautions and deodorize the home before it’s time for showings. Next step, when you enter the home, what is the first thing you see? If it is several rooms or an entry, make sure the overall appearance is clean, neat, uncluttered and welcoming. Going out of your way to make a room look spectacular will pay off. The pay off comes when you receive positive feedback and a contract to follow.
