About  Tricia

Tricia is an active real estate agent with Fathom Realty ​since October, 2018. Prior to then, she was with Keller Williams Realty for four years  at their Hillsborough, NC  branch office.  She has successfully closed over 30 real estate transactions, having  represented both buyers  and sellers.  Both  land, commerical,  and residential  properties have been listed and sold throughout the Triangle area of North Carolina. 


Property values sold or listed have ranged from $40,000 to $699,000.  She has represented buyers in new construction homes and previously built homes.  A long time resident of the Triangle area, she is aware of the market trends and has  participated in and hosted numerous Open Houses .  Home sellers have been assisted in their sale by her home staging services, whether it be decluttering, partial, or whole home vacant staging. 

Training


​Staging certification and training was completed in 2013 with Home Staging Resource https://homestagingresource.com  Since that time, both traditional staging and virtual staging has been offered  to agents and  home sellers. Currently, she enjoys offering the more affordable Virtual  Staging services. With furniture rental easily exceeding $1000 or more for the traditional 3 month listing contract, the alternative cost of $25  per room when staged virtually is a much more affordable option.  She can work with your photograhper of choice, or you can be referred to an excellent photographer who also offers drone photography.  The  pricing for both of these options is again more affordable than the traditional staging method. 


Rationale for Staging in Today's Market

Why stage in today's busy and competitive market?  

Staging will bring buyers quicker, and a staged home can  yield a higher sales price for the seller.  Even in multiple offer situations, a staged home is often "behind" the selected offer.  Many buyers are not adept at visualizing a vacant home's potential, or able to visualize a decluttered home. A  well staged home in today's market is a  definite "win-win" for any  seller!


Are there any drawbacks to Virtual  Staging?​

Will the buyer feel deceived when the home does not appear as it does in the popular home search engines or in the local MLS?

It will be important for the listing/showing realtor to disclose that the home has been virtually staged in the photographs. It is always suggested that this be disclosed in the MLS and in the home search engines, as well.  Tricia suggests having copies of the staged home placed in the the actual home so that the buyers can again visualize the home's potential as they enter it when it is vacant. 

With the current sophistication of the virtual software now used, the cartoonish appearance is now greatly decreased. An expert in virtual staging can make it difficult to tell that the staging is virtual.

Frequently  Asked Questions


1.   How long can I expect it will take to get my staged photographs back?

      They will be returned to you no more than 48 hours later.

2.  Do  I put down a deposit?

      I  prefer you pay for your photos up front. This helps me with my expense with

      staging them.  However, pre-paying for  at least one-half of the order is 

      acceptable.

3.  Can  I tell you the style and specific furniture/accessories  I want in the staged

      photos?

      Yes.  I use software that has many different decorating styles and accessories.

      I will do my best to match your preferred style. I use  HOUZZ in my research to 

      assist with matching your style of decor.

 4.  Can I see them before they are completed to see if I like what is being done?

       Yes.  I can send you drafts at any time by email for you to approve and/or

       make suggestions. My aim is to PLEASE and to have satisfied customers!

5.    Can I ever get a refund of my money if they do not turn out the way  I want 

        them?

        I  prefer NOT to give refunds due to the fact that I can send you  drafts all the 

        way  through the process so that you will know exactly how the finished 

        picture will look.   

6.    Can I get discounts?

        Yes.   As I complete more projects for you, I am happy to offer discounts.

7.     Why should I use your staging company rather than others advertised

        on the internet?

        I try to keep my prices  more affordable,  and  I offer more sharing of drafts

        and consultations during the process of the staging. There should be no  

        instance of where you receive a  staged photograph back and your requests

       were not met.   If a refund is made, the photographs will need to be returned.
