The staging by Pat Neal of Graber Realty Group was stunningly gorgeous, magnificently designed. Her ability to make a Blaha Condo unit into a Beautiful Gold Mine was mind blowing to myself and my son. Her talented design of staging made my condo look totally different. When I walked in, I did not recognize my apartment that I did not want to sell. The colors, the décor, the design of how the furniture, to the wall decor was one of the Golden Touches to the selling point.
Pat Neal is so Talented, with her artistic design and how she stagged to the bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, dinning/living room and the balcony made my condo worth more than I could imagine. She touched every single point of decor, with candles, Champagne, glasses, books, & plants, they didn’t t miss a thing– she has the Magical Touch– GOLD MINE.
My Sale has increased the value of our Building now that what I call A Win of A Sale!!!
It was totally functional in every single aspect of Exquisite Design, Living Flow of a Sale. I had other neighbors just wanting to come and look at the Art Work Masterpiece by Pat Neal of Graber Realty Group. They were WOW and impressed that they want to call her for your design assistance to their own condo and possible sale opportunity.
It is a great honor to have this amazing Graber Realty Group Staff help me sell my unit. I congratulate them for the dedication working 7 days almost 24 hours to make my sale a winner…
I would HIGLY Recommend Graber Realty for the selling of anyone’s Property. They all have the Magical Touch of a Winning Team.
I have worked with Shane and Pat for several years now on many homes. I am an investor and the renovator. The staging is always perfect. Pat understands so well that staging is a marketing tool to help buyers see the usage of a home. Pat has such a great way of taking the houses and bringing them to life to show buyers the most in them. And she and Shane are there every step in my renovations—from helping select finishes, floors, tiles and colors so my homes are always market-ready. My homes sell quickly and get me a great return, sometimes even over asking price, and I know the staging makes a HUGE difference. I hear buyers saying at open houses how they would never have thought to set up the house the way she did, and that they’re going to buy new furniture because she’s shown them how to get more use out of the space. They are always beautiful and help make the sale!
I love your staging! I told the movers to set up my furniture exactly the way you staged it. And I am still looking to purchase a desk and chair to go where you placed yours. Thank you for letting me see how to get the most out of our beautiful new home.
