Showing Tips

Preparing to Show your Home

First impressions are Lasting Impressions. You will want to make sure that buyers looking at your home are left with the best possible impression. Nancy O’Dea will help you achieve that goal.

Our Certified Professional Home Stagers are part of our Concierge Service provided when you engage Nancy O’Dea as your Realtor. They will be certain to make recommendations that will put your home’s best front forward for its debut! They will also present you with a proposal for their recommendations and give you the opportunity to ‘do it’ yourself or enlist their services for any changes. Either way it is a winning option.
