The shades are in. They look fantastic! The installation crew was extremely professional. It was a good day when it we were told to use you to help with the design of our house. Thanks for everything!


Good morning Shannon. The house looks very nice and spacious. I love the blue tones that give a 'relaxing look'. I am waiting for the pictures and will upload them as soon as possible. There's a showing this afternoon so let's see what the feedback says. Please extend my gratitude to Hala, who was very sweet and nice to me. Thank you!

The Simple Elegance team did a class at Old Republic Title on Who is Buying What, Current Design Trends and How do they reflect into the current real estate market...

Best class ever! I learned so much and I appreciate the details of the class. Thank you so much.

It was an awesome first staging experience working with Karen. I'll definitely be sending an e-mail to my 120 associates to let them know of Simple Elegance's services.

It has been a pleasure doing business with Simple Elegance - Angela, Philip, and Brook were pleasures to work with. And, I am really looking forward to your help in decorating our new home.

As with everything else, our experience has been nothing less than excellent. I would highly recommend Mary and her staff to anyone needing design and selections of materials. Our house is stunning and beautiful and the way it looks is far beyond anything we expected or that we could have imagined. I remember that all we were hoping you could do is tell us what to do with empty space, where a built in cabinet used to be. But you had a vision that you brought to reality and now we have a fantastic home, with every feature we could want, and where we will spend many happy years enjoying our kitchen, bedroom, and living spaces. Thank you for working so well with our construction team and for being patient. with me...

I have used Simple Elegance before from a referral. The property they recently staged for me was 2729 square feet and listed for $939,000. It was under contract in 2 days. From point of contact to completed stage was 4 days. Simple Elegance is always timely, professional and always willing to work with me and my clients. Thank you! We will definitely be using you again!

Staged 3147 sq. foot property, Listed at $465,00 - Under Contract in 6 days. " Excellent as always!

Staged 5155 sq ft. property, Listed at 1.1 million - Family of 9 - " Awesome experience. The home showed beautifully. I love how the Simple Elegance team coached the 6 children to prepare the home for each scheduled showing!

Carol Knott


Staged 4497 sq. ft. property., Listed at $494,670 - "This listing had been marketed by another agent & brokerage for a number of months. It had not only been severely overpriced but was presented in a very unwelcoming and unengaging way to the public. When I took the listing, I immediately saw the "bones" of the house were beautiful, but there was no way to tell the story by shooting vacant rooms and relisting. I encouraged the sellers to consider investing in staging. The house was staged on Friday. We had an open house on Sunday and immediately there were multiple offers on the house. The house was under contract in 7 days. Simply amazing! These folks are total professionals, and a true delight to work with on every level - whether it is a simple staging consultation or a full blown house staging. When a house is priced right and staged well, it will sell!

Renee Buckhoff


Staged 5,910 Sq. Ft. Property, Listed at 1.8 Million / "Simple Elegance was highly recommended to me by another agent in my office. This property has been listed for 15 months before staging. It was under contract in 3 weeks after staging. I cannot say enough for Simple Elegance... Great customer service & great experience!"

I messaged Mary in desperate need of a stager late on a Monday night and she not only responded but sent a stager out the next morning to my clients home. Karen Budde came out and did a fabulous job. I received 7 offers within 48 hours. Unfortunately that offer fell through and we went back on the market and received 13 more offers in 24 hours. I credit that to my clients hard work and the fabulous staging advice we got from Karen!!! Thank you so much for going above and beyond!

Hi Angela. Thanks so much for the professional way you worked with us. The (Hunter Douglas) installer was excellent too. Thanks again


Karen and her team at Simple Elegance are simply AMAZING! They can take an empty or poorly staged house and make the space into a beautiful masterpiece! If you need help staging your house to be sold; go with them. You wont regret it!

Charles Ward

This company is absolutely wonderful. They have creative ideas for all different type homes. They have staged several of my listings which helped sell them all in less than 3 weeks. I will continue to use their services. They are Fantastic!

Debbie Brown

Simple Elegance always does an incredible job staging my listings to assist with selling them much faster than properties not staged!

Sondra Petermann-Williams

Hi Mary, thanks for getting right on it! Great job! It looks terrific and the details are impressive! Thanks, again.

This weekend I had the privilege of working with Mary Scalli and her team on this luxury home staging. What a great experience! Mary is "hands on" and spares no detail to have the perfect touch of luxury, elegance, style, warmth, and even a little whimsy in the right places. Potential buyers will see a place that they want to call home when this team is finished. Oftentimes because luxury homes are so large, the staging looks skimpy because two few rooms are staged or there are too few furnishings and accessories in the rooms that are staged. Mary's staging exceeds expectations! I highly recommend Mary Scalli and her Simple Elegance team for luxury home staging.

The silhouettes and wood blinds were installed yesterday and all went well. The silhouettes are gorgeous - the best window coverings I have ever had. I even like them better than the shutters... Also dining room curtain samples are all beautiful. Well done and thanks so much. It has been such a pleasure working with you, your taste is wonderful and you have the ability to know exactly what i will like before I even see it!


I so enjoyed working with you on my clients drapery design. Thank you for all of your hard work and being so flexible with her. I look forward to working with you again in the future.


Don't Panic - It's great news! All our company, out of town as well as local love the new window treatments!!! YAY! And so do we. Thanks for everything.


The Simple Elegance team, specifically Karen and Shannon,
are vivid reminders that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. They are professional, polished, and polite from start to finish.
I look forward to more events, Staging Partnerships and SOLD homes with the Simple Elegance Team.
