UpStaging Designs partners with best-in-the-business Realtors. I provide customized services for each home and client, applying proven staging and design principles. I collaborate with you and your seller clients to achieve our mutual goal: a quick sale for top dollar.

Experience Matters

With my experience as a licensed Realtor in North Carolina, I have a true understanding of what attracts buyers to a home. I’m also an investor and rehabber, accustomed to hiring contractors from all different trades. I know how critical it is find trusted partners.

UpStaging Designs can become one of your expert resources—a trusted member of your team of vendor partners.

The first time I hired Ellie Mayes, I realized it was one of the best decisions I made to prepare my client’s house for market. Someone came through the open house and said, ‘This looks like something out of a magazine!’ Now I hire Ellie to do a staging consultation for every one of my listings.
