MARY PENNEY, OWNER
Professional home staging in Greater Summit, Portage, Medina and Cuyahoga Counties, Ohio
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 almost 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 staging helps the property appeal to the greatest number of buyers and that helps sellers to get top dollar for their home.
