I was looking for a company to deep clean the interior of my home.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
was prompt in returning phone calls and offered services at an excellent value. All pricing is up front and by the job, not the hour.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
and her helper worked
five hard hours cleaning my entire house, floor to ceiling. When they were done, my home looked brand new and smelled great! I will be using Genuine Care again.

She knew exactly what I needed. She used all my furniture and suggested pieces to store so that my home has more room. She provided vendors needed to paint my walls and repair my tile. I have had so many compliments and would recommend her again and again! She was very polite and returned all my calls and emails promptly. She stayed within my budget and helped me save money where she could. Very nice experience.

Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
is lovely and personable. She is also very professional. She took her time, especially when assessing our large family room which has a slightly awkward furniture placement due to large windows on every wall. All her recommendations made perfect sense. Of course we understand the need to made the house spotless, to de-personalize and de-clutter, but she also gave excellent advice on furniture to be moved, pieces of art to remove, and how to show each room to its best advantage. She also gave some ideas for our garden. We were very impressed with her sense of decorating and style.
We are moving to another state, but even if we were staying in northern KY and not selling, I think
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
would be great for giving decorating advice and a fresh eye. She also said she can help with organizing. I might need her to help organize our move! She obviously loves houses and loves what she does.
The last time we put a house on the
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
, in the
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
DC area, I hired a professional
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
. While I was pleased, I think
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
gave much more thought and talent into her recommendations and for such a good price! House staging is important, in my opinion, and more than pays for itself when the house sells.

My experience with Alabaster and
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
was very interesting, somewhat bizarre to say the least. When I first spoke with
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
, I was left feeling uncomfortable with her somewhat abrasive style hence our conversation ended with me being uncommitted. So I continued my
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
for a
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
and found one. I believe it was Friday. I even paid a deposit to this
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
. Come Monday, I decided to do a courtesy call to
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
just to inform her that I had decided to go with another
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
went "off the deep end." She started to call me bad things-this was all via text by the way. She explained that she had staged over the weekend. I was shocked! Bottom line there was no signed staging agreement (and I have emails to prove it.) I called my agent and he said to call the police. Bottom line again she had entered the house illegally. But I couldn't do it. In the end I decided unhappily to just go with
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
since she had already staged. When it came time to remove her items, I asked her to please give me the date that she planned to remove her items so that I could notify my agent. Not a word from her. I'm giving 2 stars because I have to give her credit for a nice staging job. Otherwise it would be 1 star!

I am relatively new to the area, so when I was ready to renovate my kitchen, I really didn't know where to begin. A friend of mine mentioned
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
, so I set up a time to meet. What is unique about
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
's services is that he brings in contractors, painters, and electricians for you to interview. I wouldn't have known where to begin in finding reliable, quality work. This way, you have a choice and feel like you can make an informed decision.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
saved me from making a very costly decision from the start. I had planned to go with darker cabinets, as mine were natural (yellowed) oak that I hated. But given my kitchen placement,
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
explained that I needed to go lighter because of the lack of direct light in my kitchen.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
helped with a concept of a kitchen design before we even started looking at cabinets.Even though I was somewhat uncertain that I would find lighter cabinets that I liked, I was able to find cabinets that I absolutely feel in love with and so we began.
Any time we met,
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
would have an agenda so we would make good use of our time. Each month he provided an invoice with a summary of everything he did, so you always knew where his time was spent. His fees were part of my overall budget for the kitchen.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
would stay in touch with all of the contractors, make sure they were on schedule, and stop by on a regular basis to make sure things were going well. He has a good eye for catching things that weren't up to par or needed to be corrected. He provided a lot of guidance and moral support when I was torn on some decisions, and was very patient with me when I changed my mind on some things (multiple times).
We took field trips to look at lighting, granite, and a
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
fabricator. He found ways for me to save money on some of the kitchen items, researched specialty items on the internet, and was available for any help needed in the process. He had a timeline set up so I knew what we would be doing when, but also allowing some necessary flexibility in the schedule.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
is extremely knowledgeable, punctual to a tee, and fun to work with. I got the kitchen of my dreams, and feel like I made a friend along the way. Kitchen renovations aren't the easiest, and this iwas my first, but if I did it again (or any project for that matter) I would certainly call
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
!

Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
is absolutely fantastic to work with! We contacted her at the last minute to stage an emptly house just a few days prior to an Open House.
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
came out right away, took a look at the house without us being there, left us a contract and had the house staged within a day! And, it's stunning!!!
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
is so easy to work with and has great ideas! We'll definitely be calling her again to stage the next house we're selling!!

Our house was on the
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
early this summer and got an offer in a week. We sold 3 rooms worth of furniture (office and two bedrooms) and had the house about 70% packed including all paintings and wall art. 5 days before closing, our buyers backed out and we had to go back on the
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
at the end of selling season. I was at a loss because the house was in shambles. Full of boxes and empty rooms. Out of desperation, I called RFMHS. Even though
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
was getting ready to go on vacation she squeezed me in.
She assessed all of the existing furniture in the house and moved several things around. She advised which mirrors/art pieces to unpack and hung them up. She rearranged the existing knick knacks and made some suggestions on small things (like small plant) I could pick up that would make a big impact on the house. She managed to make our office an office with a small desk I had been using as a hall table. By the time she was finished, my house looked better than it did when it first went on the
Elgin Home Stagers Provider Name Locked
fully furnished!
My husband and friends were blown away. After she finished, we had several positive comments like "shows like a model home" and "rooms are airy and refreshing." While we don't have an offer yet, we have two buyers considering (both have said to let them know if we get an offer). One of them even asked how much furniture we would be willing to sell with the house!
I will definitely be calling them again when we move into our new house so she can help me arrange furniture (staging for living vs selling as she says :) )

When I requested service, was told they'd do an on-site estimate. Instead they did a phone estimate. When asked # boxes I replied I had no idea since I was scheduling several weeks ahead and not packed yet. They estimated 6 hrs. I was told they would arrive between 8-9 moving day and call me 30 min before arrival. They called at 8:40 and arrived about 9:15. After showing 2 movers around house and garage to show what was to move (some furniture to be left behind), head mover said he thought it would take closer to 7-8 hrs but he'd have a better idea and let me know when about 1/2 done loading. I told them I had to leave at 5pm but we didn't think that would be a problem. I made a couple of trips to the new house with plants, etc in my car and movers had cell phone contact with me. There was a call at 1, asking a question. I returned to old house around 3 and expressed concern that they were still loading. (No mention had ever been made about being at 1/2 way point.) Head mover thought it was still possible for them to finish by 5 because unloading was quicker than loading and they were almost done. He asked me to label bedrooms so he'd know which furniture went in which room in case they didn't get to them until done, which I did. I left and returned again about 4:45 and they were still loading. I came up to the garage door and heard head mover swearing as I walked up before he saw me. I asked if they were having trouble and head mover replied "No, just lots of things..." then walked away to moving truck. I expected some explanation of what was going on and what the plan was. I followed him and said it was nearly 5, you're still loading, I have to leave to care for elderly mother and grandchildren, what's the plan. Did I have any choice at this point about going over 8 hours? Most of my stuff was in their truck. They said they were almost finished but couldn't fit 2 tools (band saw and drill press), did I want them to come back for them after emptying the truck. I said yes and I gave them keys so they could unload at new house and come back for the tools. I know that they left the old house because I could see their truck from my mother's high-rise window. About 5:30 they called to ask which bedrooms the furniture went in because he didn't see labels on the door frames. About 7:30 I received a call saying now that they were so many hours over did I still want them to put boxes in the rooms they went in. I said no, but put them on the right floor. (Basement & garage are below main floor with all other rooms. all boxes clearly marked) I arrive at my new home about 8:15 and they were still unloading. I noticed boxes labeled garage and basement in the living room and kitchen and boxes labelled for every main floor room in the garage. I asked what happened to putting them on the right floor and he said, "Yeah, main floor, that's kitchen, living room, bedrooms." I said, yes, and see right here are boxes marked garage and basement. He did not reply. Later the assistant said that other movers had come to help them and they must have put the boxes in the wrong place. Then they ask if I still want them to pick up the 2 tools. I said yes. While they were gone, I'm trying to make beds for myself and granddaughter to sleep in. 1 bed was assembled and I could put sheets on it. The other bed had frame and mattress but I couldn't find box springs. When they returned with the tools, I asked about box springs and they said they had it on the truck. Good thing I wanted those tools! A table had been damaged which they did fix, but the mover's attitude was rude. "Are you sure it wasn't like that?" If it had been like that, the shelf would have fallen off when you tried to move it. "Oh, it's just loose, I'll tighten screws." No, it's still loose, see this, it's stripped out. "No it's not, I'll just tighten it more." It seemed OK then and tired of arguing. So now they're finally done and time for the bill. 13 hours instead of 6 or 7 or 8. I expressed unhappiness that I wasn't properly informed of what was going on. He said his boss was supposed to have called me but I only received calls from the mover. I got the sense that maybe it had just been one of those days for the mover and things had gone wrong, but don't feel I should have to pay for that. And I told him I didn't like they way he had talked to me and he said he didn't act as I said. He ended up calling his boss and got 1 hour taken off. He said I had 80 boxes instead of 50 that they estimated. They left so quick, they didn't finish unwrapping furniture so many pieces still had plastic wrap and 3 still had the padding blankets.
I understand things can go longer than expected but feel I was not kept in the loop and the overage seems extreme. And I don't feel like I was treated with respect from the lead mover though his assistant was very respectful.
