MARY PENNEY, OWNER

Professional home staging in Northeast Ohio serving the Greater Summit, Portage, Medina and Cuyahoga Counties

I am an experienced real estate professional based in Northeast Ohio. I have been working as a home stager since 2019, but have been a REALTOR and real estate Broker since 1990.  My background in selling and staging real estate for over 30 years helps me to see properties as a commodity that should be displayed to maximize return.  

Did you know that prospects will stay in a staged home for around 40 minutes, versus 5 in an empty house? (According to REALTOR.org) My goal is to help buyers envision themselves in the home and what lifestyle they could have there. Professional home staging helps the property appeal to the greatest number of buyers and that helps sellers to get top dollar for their home.

ASHLEY ABNEY

Assistant Stager.  Ashley earned her bachelor's degree in early childhood education at The University of Akron.  After graduating, she spent two years in Chicago where her love for design emerged.  Her organizational skills and attention to detail are key when preparing for, and completing a stage. She currently lives in Copley with her husband and three children.  In her spare time she enjoys working out and going on adventures with her family.

FINISHED ROOMS

Limited home staging starts at $1,950.  (Please see detailed pricing below)  Through my 30+ years of experience in real estate, I have learned exactly how a house should show to attract the most number of buyers. Selling a property means selling a lifestyle.  At MAP Home Staging, we strive for a fresh and welcoming look that is not taste specific. This is the difference between interior decorating and staging to sell- and there is a science to it!!!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAYS

Mary did a fantastic job staging what we had lovingly begun to refer to as our “shoebox house”. The transformation almost made us wonder why we were selling it (ok maybe not quite)! Somehow, she managed to make the house appear bigger, brighter and much more inviting than it ever looked when we lived there. I’m not quite sure how she and her crew managed it in about a day, when it took us several to move all of our stuff out. Mary has a keen eye for design and her seemingly small finishing touches made a big difference. With her staging (and admittedly a great location), we had more than 60 showings in one weekend and 9 offers all over list price! This service was WELL WORTH THE COST!! The addition funds we received over list price amounted to more than 10 times the staging cost! It’s a no-brainer!

EXCEEDING YOUR EXPECTIONS IS OUR JOB

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU  CONSIDER STAGING WITH US:

We own all of our staging furniture, rugs, art and accessories etc.  All items are purchased new, except for a very few unique and high end vintage pieces and custom artwork.  The cost of our ever evolving inventory is almost $75,000, and all items are carefully selected for beauty as well as taste level. We do not use repurposed or "up-cycled" items.  Because we do not rent furniture or moving van (we have our own) you will not have other contracts or costs to worry about.  We strive for perfection in our home staging, and hope you will not mind if we showcase the finished product on social media.
