Our Services

The GRAND ENTRANCE experience is built upon superior customer service and affordable design. In addition to our featured services, we can customize a plan to meet your unique needs. For real estate agents, we offer attractive partner rates for your listings to give them a competitive advantage so they sell faster and for maximum dollar.

Consultation and Proposal

We will meet with you and discuss your goals and expectations and how to receive the maximum return on investment for your home improvement dollars. We will walk through your home as a buyer would and gather those all-important “first impressions.” If time allows, we will visually give you a quick demonstration of the difference home staging makes by transforming an area of your home. We will end with a proposal based upon the amount of work needed in order to gain a speedy sale and the highest dollar amount for your home.

Home Staging

Through professional design and marketing techniques, we transform your home into a buyer’s dream for a faster sale and maximum return on investment. We provide thorough home staging services indoors and out, including furniture placement, organization, accessorizing and, if needed, coordination of contractors. We create emotional connection points that have universal appeal and allow buyers to envision themselves living in your home. You’ll walk away with a show-ready home!

Holiday Design Services

Overwhelmed by the holidays? GRAND ENTRANCE can take the stress out of holiday planning and decorating by providing full service design and party preparation throughout the holiday season. Let us turn your home or office into a holiday wonderland! We participate in the annual Holiday Home Tour by volunteering our design services to fully decorate a home for the holidays that is open to the public on tour. All proceeds go to charity.

Interior Redesign

For homes that just need a little extra attention and expertise, a GRAND ENTRANCE Consultant will work with what you already have to make dramatic transformations to your home. If additional accessories are needed in order to complete the look of each room, we can make suggestions so that you can purchase with confidence, we can shop for you.

Open House or New Listing Staging Weekend

This service includes a Home Staging Consultation where we review every room to create a GRAND ENTRANCE Action Plan. We then spend one full day preparing the home for an Open House or to go on the market, redesigning rooms to create flow, light and space. We clear unnecessary and personal items to give space a neutral appeal for buyers. Additional accessories and items will be set up for the Open House/new listing weekend for maximum effect without rental charges (rental fees will apply if seller or agent determines the need for these accessories beyond the weekend). De-staging of accessories is included.

Open House or Broker’s Caravan Preparation

For the budget-conscious, a GRAND ENTRANCE Consultant will add the finishing touches and prepare a setting to welcome brokers and potential buyers for your listing that is just about to go on the market or have an Open House. If vacant, we will stage the kitchen — the heart of every home! We will also be available to host your caravan and provide coffee and snacks to welcome your visitors.

GRAND ENTRANCE Action Plan

For the do-it-yourselfer who just needs some detailed expert direction, we will walk through your home, taking a fresh look at every room, and create a GRAND ENTRANCE Action Plan. In one main room, we will clear unnecessary and personal items to give your space a neutral appeal to buyers, and redesign it to create flow, light and space. We will leave you with a detailed GRAND ENTRANCE Action Plan so you can complete the look in the remainder of your home yourself.

Shopping Service

We’ll create a budget and shop for those accessories that serve as investments in the sale of your home.  Simple, inexpensive purchases go a long way in changing the look of a room.  We know where to shop for the perfect accessories to complete the look of your home.

Home Organization

Need help organizing your home office, kitchen or closets but don’t know where to begin? We can help you organize to improve functionality and comfort in your home.

Move-in Design Services

Congratulations on your new home purchase! Let us help you settle into your new home by creating a plan for furniture placement, organizing and accessorizing to create a warm and functional space for you and your family. We can also help coordinate painters and other contractors to complete your custom design.

“Do-It-Yourself” Manual

The “Do It Yourself” (DIY) Manual is an extensive, 30+ page report detailing all of the actions a GRAND ENTRANCE Consultant would take to transform your home, as well as tips and tricks from the pros. We give you the expertise so you can supply the energy and take the time to do improvements and staging yourself. Perfect for the “For Sale By Owners.”

Photography Services
Professional photography services are available to market the sale of your home for real estate agents and “For Sale By Owners”.

A Word on Green Staging & Design
The art of home selling is largely based on making your home attractive to prospective buyers. Conserving the environment is a passion to Southern Californians and keeping ahead of that trend makes your home more appealing to house hunters, especially first-time home buyers.  Potential buyers will appreciate the fact that the home they are considering employs active solutions to their environmental concerns.

At GRAND ENTRANCE HOME STAGING & DESIGN, our priority is on the environment. We stage and redesign with an emphasis on “Reduce/Reuse/Recycle”. Whenever possible, we purchase from resale and consignment shops, as well as from furniture rental companies. We reuse plastic and paper bags and we partner with other companies committed to eco-friendly practices and resource-saving products. We use only environmentally friendly cleaning products, specify no-VOC paints when recommending paint colors, and offer eco-friendly alternatives for flooring or any remodeling components that are contracted out for clients.
