Home Staging Portland | Transformations | Testimonials

Once a upon a time there was a very cool house that needed to be professionally staged.  With a wave of her magic wand, poof…  It was done!   The Wow, Wow in WOW is Back!  WOW! 28th Avenue looks beautiful!  You & your team are awesome!     Jim and LuAnn DeMarco, The Meadows Group Realtors

Rebecca brings to each home and it’s sale qualities that no one can fake, money can’t buy nor can any school can teach- world class vision and taste. The amount of money spent on her services for my Boca Ratan listing was easily returned ten-fold in the form of an immediate full price offer with no additional requests, even during the inspection period. This was after having been on the market, off-and-on, for three years and with several sale-fails along the way. Rebecca will always be an integral part of my listing on-boarding system and team. Steve Nassar, Park Place Real Estate

The investment (in staging) was well worth it. The triple digit ROI on that speaks for itself. It’s simple math. It’s business. Anne Scott, Seller, NW Portland

I wanted to email you as well to tell you how beyond pleased I am with (the staging). It is OUTSTANDING! You have such beautiful furniture – I love every room you did!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!   Mary Jane Stern, Client and Former Interior Designer

We had an amazing experience with Rebecca Chute and Transformations!  I was a skeptic about having a house staged for selling to start with.  Then the stager I had booked backed out only with only eight days until the Broker Tour.  If the Broker Tour had been cancelled, we would have missed a start-of-summer showing, which was important since the house had a pool.  Rebecca came over right away and managed to work within our tight timing.  She turned my 80-year-old mother’s non-updated 60′s split-level home into a swanky hipster house – and we had a full price offer within 24 hours of the house being on the market, even though our price was higher than we thought the market would allow!  Selling my mom’s house was stressful, but Rebecca made her part of the process smooth and stress-free. The price was reasonable, and Rebecca was responsive to all my questions. I would recommend Rebecca and Transformations for anyone who wants their home to look terrific AND who wants to get top price!  Maika Yeigh, Seller, Portland

This summer I put my home up for sale in one of the worst real estate markets in decades. I was concerned it would sit for many months. I wanted to put my best foot forward to ensure the house sold. After interviewing several staging companies, I decided to hire Rebecca and Transformations because I felt she just “got it” and could transform my home into a vision that would help potential buyers see my home in an inspiring way. Rebecca’s work was nothing short of amazing. All my friends could not believe the difference. I wanted to move back in!!! The home received two offers in the first week. SOLD! Honestly, I could not have achieved such fast results without Transformations. I Highly recommend her services and vision.Cecilia Don, Seller $1.5 million historic home

Rebecca Chute is one of the most professional experts I have had the pleasure of working with in a long career of hiring, evaluating, and utilizing the very best home professionals. she is delightful to work with, extremely timely in her work, never misses a deadline, and is absolutely brilliant in her execution. I needed my house staged both quickly and well. Rebecca not only loved the job, she seems to love helping her clients make profit even more. Humbly she told me it was not unusual for her clients to triple the investment they make in staging by higher bids in the selling process. Not only was I frankly amazed by the quality of her work – as were all realtors and customers who saw it – but I achieved over 15 times what I paid her above my list price! There is no conceivable way this could have happened without her verve for style and intuitive sense of what works in a changing market, her ability to work within unusual spaces, her delightful, can-do attitude and her ability for swift and excellent execution. I am sorry I plan to remain in my new home for years to come because I will not be able to work with her again soon. She and her team are, frankly, amazing, and I unequivocally recommend her with the highest possible confidence. Diane Solomon, Seller, Portland

We used Transformations to stage two of our homes that we put on the market within one month of each other. One home was contemporary and the other traditional. Rebecca did a great job decorating each home to the style of architecture. All of the furniture, rugs and accessories were top quality and looked terrific in each home. The houses ended up selling within a month of each other. In one of the homes, the buyer ended up buying a majority of the furniture and accessories because they looked so great with teh house. Our experience with Transformations was very positive. Rebecca Slusher, Seller, Lake Oswego

I recently had Rebecca stage our home in Portland and couldn’t have been happier with the results. The home was vacant and had sat on the market for several months without an offer. After her beautiful staging job we received an offer five days later! The home looked remarkable and Rebecca was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend her services. Susan James, Seller, Battle Ground WA

Rebecca’s work speaks for itself. She is a master at transforming dull, forgettable spaces, to sleek, stylish, comfy and sexy rooms. She’s a pleasure to work with and best of all yields great results for my clients!  Maria Shershow, Broker, Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group

Transformations totally transformed our home from mis-matched to streamlined modern chic. It went from feeling clogged and overwhelming to totally warm, stylish, & inviting. Rebecca just pulled the entire place together and made it look like a picture from a magazine.  Angela Heiney, Seller

I showed the color story to my designer husband who is classically trained to be critical when it comes to design. He had one question…”When do we start!” Great job! I think you two nailed it. I have one question of my own…why didn’t I hire you sooner!  Thank you so much.  DeNeice Worthington, Seller of Sundeleaf home and paint consultation client

Did the staging make the difference?  No doubt in my mind.  Thank you. Paul Kaplan, M.D., Home Seller of property originally marketed vacant

Full of energy and appreciation for our little mid-century diamond-in-the-rough, Rebecca helped us determine which elements of our house were charming and in-demand, and what should be replaced and modernized. Because she knew the market so well, she convinced us to keep cabinets, windows and hardware, saving us thousands. Her choices for new materials were cutting edge and cost-effective (almost all were less expensive than those I had originally chosen!). Her staging was fresh, clean, and compelling. We loved showing off the house– people would actually gasp in delight! We didn’t get much time to bask in the glory because we had 3 offers the first weekend of listing, and 2 more after a week. We sold the house for $10K over listing price. The beautiful staging was only in the house for the minimum one month. We are believers in the power of Transformations! Lori Scott, Seller, Interior Design and Staging Client

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I even cried a little because your beautiful things really helped me realize what I’ve actually done through this renovation… It’s absolutely gorgeous. And that bedroom looks BIG!!Thank you so much, so so much!Jo Racklin, Seller/Investor, SE Portland Jewelbox

Once again, Transformations made our project come to life!  Their staging was perfect for our new craftsman bungalow and enabled us to maximize the sales price.  Thanks Rebecca.  Eric Thompson, Oregon Homeworks, LLC

It was a pleasure working with Rebecca at Transformations. On her initial consultation she provided excellent advice on what we should focus on to get our house ready to sell. Her insights ranged from paint colors and what rooms we should paint to updating our kitchen. She worked closely with us to come up with a plan to stage our house and it looked beautiful when she and her colleagues had finished. To top it off, we received an offer on our home less than 12 hours after it went on the market. Thank you, Rebecca, for all your help!  Cressie Sloat, Seller

Got an offer and several others waiting in the wings on this one. Everyone has loved the staging. We had to get the price in the right range for action, and when we did, buyers have begun fighting over it!Cary Perkins, Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group

Rebecca of Transformations was great to work with. She staged my home with tasteful, sophisticated furnishings, accessories, and artwork that looked wonderful. People who saw the home remarked on how well it showed. I am positive that Rebecca’s staging helped to sell our home! Christine Vernier, Seller

I know you heard about our good news: we’re under contract with a back-up offer.  Thanks for the wonderful job staging our house.  I’m sure we could not have generated so much interest (and so many quick offers) without your help.  Marc Goodman, Seller

Many thanks again for an excellent job. I’m looking forward to getting the house on the market. It’s bittersweet to be selling the home, especially now that it looks so great!!!  Julie Igarashi, Seller

I know I can count on you, so I never fear. I tell everyone, that there could be five houses in a row, all staged, I could walk thru each of them, and I would know which one was done by you!  And that’s true.  Patty Black, Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group

Thanks so much for the beautiful staging.  My home has a new future owner, and I am sure that your wonderful staging had a great deal to do with our home selling.  After viewing the pictures of my home with the staging, I was sure that I should pack up my things and move back to Portland, to live in the beautiful home I had put on the market.   In fact, as much as I love the staging, I am sad that I didn’t have someone professionally decorate my home, while I was living there.  It is amazing what a difference the right furniture and accessories make to the look and livability of a home. Again, thanks so much for working your magic.   Carol and Terry Marlink, Sellers

Looks FANTASTIC!!!  Nice work, Rebecca!  Dianne Rodway, City Properties Group, Realty Trust
