Real Estate Agents

Lori did an excellent job putting our thoughts into a design.  She was also able to accommodate our business on extremely short notice when another staging company cancelled last minute.  We would highly recommend Element One!  Eric C. – Keller Williams

Lori Murphy with Element One Home Staging & Redesign makes my job as a realtor so much easier! Her talent leads to quick sales at top dollar. The last 2 homes she has stage for my clients sold the first day on the market with multiple offers, at or above the list price. Her style is appealing, clean and refreshing. When buyers see the homes she stages they feel welcome and at home. She is a true professional. I always look forward to seeing the finished product. I recommend Lori to anyone who wants to sell their home quickly at top dollar!  – Hicks Elite Realty Professionals  

I was referred to Lori by my husband who’s a real estate appraiser. During his 19 plus year career he’s appraised numerous staged properties all over central Ohio and in his opinion Lori’s was the highest quality he’s seen to date. I was asked to list a property that had been listed with another broker for nearly one year but had not sold. The property was vacant and had not been previously staged. Within 24 hours of reaching out to Lori I had a proposal/quote in my hand. I could not have been more pleased with the quality of staging she provided and loved how her work filled the home with warmth. I appreciated that each color choice, furniture style and placement was completed in a way that beautifully showed off the best features of this gorgeous property. After four months of marketing this home I was successful in selling it within 98% of the original list price.

Lori with Element One is exceptional at her job. She staged the home perfectly and is very easy to work with. She cares about her clients and works with them to fulfill their needs. Lori and Element One are my first call when it comes to staging and caring for a listing. LOCKED INTO MY CONTACTS!  I encourage all agents considering a staging company to go see Lori’s work at 1820 Hannah Farms Court.

Lori staged the very first home that I had staged. With the listing being vacant, I knew it needed some sprucing. She did more than sprucing. She impressed everyone, including myself. In the 48 hours that the home was listed, all 30 some buyers loved the style of the home… From the time I met Lori, I knew I wanted to associate my business with her. She is very confident in what she does and I cannot say enough good things about her and her business.  –  Tipton Swafford, Century 21

Lori did a consultation for me on a property that had been difficult to sell because of the decor. Upon her recommendations, the seller did some painting, replaced some carpet, ‘un’decorated some areas of the home and rearranged furniture. The property had previously been on the market for six months with lots of showings but only one very lowball offer. One week after the updates, the property is now in contract at full list price! The sellers and I couldn’t be happier! Lori provided not only her expertise and connections for great deals, but was able to tactfully get the sellers to ‘let go’ of the decor, reduce their sentimental attachment to the home, and see it as a commodity rather than their personal space. It worked! My highest recommendations!!

Lori did a fantastic job staging my listing at 891 Ludwig, Gahanna OH 43230. The Home had been vacant, and feedback we were getting was that the Home was dated and room sizes were small, the bedrooms getting that comment were 11X12 and 10X12. Lori staged the Home and the feedback we received after no longer focused on the cosmetic issues and room sizes but buyers were now able to “see” the house. They were then looking at it in terms of livability and layout. We received an offer the week after we staged this listing. I am now a real believer in the staging of vacant Homes. It makes all the difference, but you need to use someone who really knows what staging can do and Lori and Element One Home Staging and Redesign is the person/Company to use! – Jeni Reitz, Hicks Elite Realty Professionals

Homeowners

We were having a trouble selling our house unfurnished. Lori came in and staged it. Within a month, we had multiple offers. She did an awesome job putting it together to show the house’s full potential. Lori was extremely easy to work with and would highly recommend her!

Lori was very prompt, professional, and her staging looked great. She not only staged the home but gave us paint color recommendations and helped us decide what items were important to upgrade for the sale and which ones we could save the money on. With our home staged, the photos for the listing looked amazing and we had an offer almost immediately. I am very pleased with her services and believe she was an important part to the process to getting a quick sale. – Jordan Albrecht

Lori is a great professional and a good person. She did a good job at my house!!! I sold my house the first day in the market.
Thank you, Lori, for your job!!  – Semiramis

Lori did a great job staging our house to sell. Her vision made a huge difference opening up our main entryway and adding pieces for style and color. Lori’s helpful tips definitely contributed to the quick sale of our house. We had 10 showing request, 3 offers and in contract within 48 hours of listing. – K. Oyer

I wanted to give Lori the highest praise possible for what she did for me and my house! I was relocated about 3 hours from my home for work, and with that I put my house up for sale. It had been up for sale for over 6 months, when I reached out to Lori for some advice. I met with her once at my house, and she told me she would take care of everything for me and send me pictures of the results. So within a few weeks she set it up and sent the pics to me, and they were amazing! And believe it or not the very first showing After the staging, I had an offer…unfortunately the offer fell through, (buyer couldn’t sell their house), and once again within one week I had a second offer and it is now under contract! Lori has a great vision on what will look good in a home and it has a great ability to make things look fantastic in any environment.   I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is selling their home. – Timothy Eardley

My realtor hired Element One Home Staging & Design to stage our home before going on the market. I only went along with it because my realtor also covered the consultation cost. I thought it was going to be “pushy” and expensive. I was wrong! Lori worked with my schedule and my budget! I’m convinced she was the reason we sold our house in 2 days! She will also be helping in our new home soon!  – Amy Lacey

I had a vacant home on the market for several months and after 30+ showings, the majority of feedback from prospective buyers was that the home felt too small. After Lori staged the home, there was no negative feedback regarding size and the house was under contract within several weeks. Lori was quick to respond to inquiries and showed a genuine interest in staging the home, unlike other local stagers who treated me like an inconvenience. Thanks, Lori! – Nicole

Lori did a beautiful job staging my home, and it made a big difference in getting it sold. She was prompt, reliable, professional, and trustworthy. I highly recommend her. – Peg

My home was on the market for several months. It was receiving positive feedback but no offers. I engaged Element One Home Staging to give it that little bit extra. They were fast, professional, and very easy to work with. A month later I had the offer I wanted. I am convinced their skilled staging is what sold my home for a very acceptable price. – aiscluchfc1

We were highly skeptical of the staging process until we met Lori who took us slowly through the process, ascertained our needs, and then proposed a modest plan at an affordable cost that we immediately accepted. When we visited our condo after she completed the staging, we were impressed by the tastefulness of her decorating choices and how well the items complemented floors and wall coverings. Her commitment to using some of the furnishings that we left in the condo after our move demonstrated her effort to adhere to our budget. We heartily recommend Element One to anyone contemplating a move. – cbutler33

We reached out to Lori for home staging guidance. We were trying to sell our home and in our past attempts we were unsuccessful. Lori was very professional and extremely helpful and realistic with her suggestions. We did everything she suggested from re painting the front door and master bedroom to changing the shower curtain and adding some new fluffy white towels in the bathroom. We had three offers within 72 hours of putting the house on the market. This was our fourth attempt to sell the house! Her suggestions worked! Lori’s suggestions made the home look wonderful. We are so appreciative of Lori and would recommend her to anyone who is in the need of a home stager. – Angie

We really enjoyed working with Lori Murphy! We hired Element One Home Staging to help stage our house before putting it on the market. Lori was very responsive and prompt in staging our home. She discussed various options with us to make sure we had the best fit. The best part – we enjoyed our house more after she staged it! Almost every comment we received from potential buyers said the house was in great shape/beautiful/wonderful home, etc. We highly recommend Lori and we plan to work with her when decorating our new home. Thanks Lori!!  – Gayle

Lori was extremely professional and I truly believe the way she staged my home made a big difference in how fast it sold! I would highly recommend her! – Terri

The people at Element One were very quick and efficient staging my house for sale. Styles were appropriately chosen and the place looked very nice, which greatly enhanced the appearance and overall atmosphere of the property. I would definitely recommend them. – geeberent

Investors

Lori was a pleasure to work with and did a wonderful job staging our vacant investment property. While our small home was nice before the staging, it looked stunning afterwards. Even though we had intended to stage the home from the beginning, we were amazed at just how much of a difference it made. Apparently we weren’t alone, either, as the home sold to literally the first buyer that saw it! What’s more, we wanted the staging done on a short time frame, and Lori was able to accommodate. And to top it all off, the price for the staging was more than reasonable. Whenever we sell a home again, we’ll definitely give Lori a call! Highly recommended. – Rich Zwaap

We hired this company for home staging and they did a wonderful job. They were very professional and got everything completed on time. We would highly recommend them for anyone needing home staging and/or design services. – Brookewood Construction
