A Top Rated Home Stager In Twin Cities Wants a Do-Over

A Top Rated Home Stager In Twin Cities Wants a Do-Over

Power of A Business Name AAA


The Home Staging Coaches, An A Rated Staging Expert In The Twin Cities  Has Regrets

 Wishes  Her Business Name was AAAmazing Transformations by The Home Staging Coaches

Why do I wish that I had named my business AAAmazing Transformations by the Home Staging Coaches?  Because when your name starts with an A…or better yet with three or four A’s, you get more attention…and what small business owner doesn’t love attention?

For example:  Angie’s List has 69 Home Staging Businesses in their Twin Cities data base.

  • Of those 69 only about 15% have client reviews
  • Of that 15% only 10 have reviews from an Angie’s List member giving them an A rating
  • I am happy to tell you that I am on the short list, with both customers reviews, and an A rating

When someone does a Google search for Twin Cities Home Staging Businesses  Angie’s List pops up to indicate that they have  home staging businesses in their database. The problem is only two business names are included in the Google results…and they both start with A. It looks something like this:

Saint Paul Home Stager Reviews you can Trust | Angie’s List | Best ..

  • Abode Design
  • Al   Theilson

Unless you are an Angie’s List paid subscriber you can’t get into Angie’s List database to see that The Home Staging Coaches (me!) is rated superior in service and price by her customers.  But if I was AAAmazing Transformations I would show up on the list before Abode..or Al Theilson.  Then even non Angie’s List members could learn about my business and  call me  to manage their Real Estate Staging project. 

That is why in my next life I am going to call my business AAAmazing-Transformations…or AAAhomestaging, or something starting with at least 3 A’s.

If you live in the Minneapolis or St Paul metro area and would like the help of a professional home stager I’d be happy to help you with your project.  I’ll give you A+ results even thought my business name starts with T.  You can read lots of comments from my satisfied customers right here on my website … who needs for you to get into Angie’s List! Please contact me by email or by phone at 651.587.5887 if I can assist you with your Home Staging or Room Makeover projects.


A Small Closet Gets A Makeover

A Small Closet Gets A Makeover

Expert Room Makeover and Interior Design tips from Christi Bond, the Home Staging Coach from St Paul/Minneapolis, MN  (vol.1)

Today’s Design A Room Topic: Reinventing a Space to Suit Your Needs

Interior ReDesign: (verb) Giving your home a low cost makeover by using the furniture and accessories you already own in a fresh new way.

You are in the right place if you are looking for tips and resources on how to transform your homes interior to reflect your personality and to function the way you need it to.  In today’s Room Makeover lesson I will show you how to convert a small bedroom closet into a perfect study space.

My daughter Kate is a 7th grader.  She is an uber smart and motivated student so this year we decided to send her to a private school. The school is know for its rigorous academics and we were hearing rumors of a heavy homework load.

Kate’s room is very small, an 8×10 room or 80 square feet.  That isn’t a lot of space when you consider that you definitely need a bed and plenty of space for a teen’s ever expanding wardrobe and book collection.  We needed to get creative to carve out a quiet, private, and convenient study space for her.

Since there was no way we could add a desk and chair into that small space we decided to take over her closet.  (I’ll show you what we did with her clothes and shoes in another post)

Here is a Six Step Outline of our Closet to Study Space Makeover:

A Perfect Study Space

  1. We removed the closet door and the clothes rod
  2. We bought an inexpensive piece of plywood and stained it a dark espresso
  3. We painted the side walls with metallic paint so she could use magnets to post up assignments, favorite pictures, and that type of thing
  4. We painted it a bright green to energize her and it’s also a favorite color
  5. We hung an antique chandelier that was snagged at a thrift store some time ago and was waiting in the basement for the perfect home.
  6. We added a chair, a foot stool, and an extension cord with multiple plug-ins to accommodate iPod chargers, desk lamp, laptop, pencil sharpener and all things electronic.

Now Kate has a perfectly outfitted space in her room to do her homework.  It works great and it looks great.

This is a perfect example of breaking the rules a little bit and designing a space to function the way you need it to.  It was a one day redesign and done on a tight budget.  The whole project cost us about $25 for the plywood to create the work surface and the paints for the wall.

So Get Busy!  Great Function and Style is Only A Day Away.  Oh…also remember… be BRAVE. The great thing about Room ReDesign is if you are not thrilled with the results you can always move things back to the way they were.  All you have invested is a bit of your time, a little change, and lots of creative juices.
