Set the Stage by Cindy | Home Staging

“Choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life” – Confucius

Cindy Foster has often claimed “I truly don’t consider what I do a “job”. She knew a long time ago that she had a passion for home decorating. She loved helping friends, coworkers and family members, whether it be staging to live, organizing, or even holiday decorating. She was always told she had a great talent that needed to be used.

Cindy soon represented a home interior company providing hundreds of clients with her interior design talent. As a student at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC she studied interior decorating. She also established her own successful holiday decorating business offering professional holiday decorating for all budgets, serving areas in North and South Carolina.

After staging her own home for sale, it sold for the listing price and in a very short time. She came to the realization that other homes which had not been staged, were not selling as quickly, or were still on the market. This opened the door to her home staging career.

Cindy earned her Accredited Staging Professional® (ASP) designation from Karen Mendenhall, certified ASP trainer.

She is also a member of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP).  As owner of Set the Stage by Cindy, she is uniquely qualified through her creativity and expertise to show your home’s most compelling features and to sell your home for a higher profit margin in the least amount of time.

Her goal is to create a marketable environment that “sets the stage”  for an emotional connection that appeals to the broadest range of prospective buyers. She is focused on providing staging, budget-friendly redesign and organizational services with the highest level of satisfaction and will strive to meet your expectations.

You have only one chance to make that first impression, so make it the best it can be!! Contact Cindy to learn how home staging will sell your house quickly and will put more money in your wallet.

“Cindy provided excellent service and expertise when designing the decor for our newly purchased home. She listened to my ideas and was able to suggest amazing ideas of her own to make our new house “our home” and represent us! I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a keen eye for design.”  –  Ashley N.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has reported that sellers got back $4-$6 for every dollar they spent on staging. Staged homes are on the market 83% less time than a non-staged home.

My husband and I were referred to Cindy by our realtor. We had never utilized home staging services until this point. Cindy met with us and explained how she worked. While keeping our timeline and budget in consideration she decluttered, depersonalized and staged our home and we sold it for over asking price and in less time then we expected! We appreciated her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a true professional in this busy time of selling your home. It truly made the process so much easier.  – Marion and Bob S.
