Hands-On Professional Staging

When you hire Paxem Studio to stage your home, we will work with you to enhance the features of your home and get it ready to sell. A typical staging job may include furniture arrangement and/or rental, addition or reduction of accessories, decluttering, home repair, depersonalizing, and even upgrading.  A well-staged home sells faster and for more money.  You will have a beautifully staged home in no time and won't have to worry about anything.  

Exquisite Interior Design 

​During a consultation with you, we learn about your lifestyle, personal style, and design wants and needs. We create an idea-board to show you the latest trends and inspiration pictures, as well as create CAD renderings of your home. We make sure the design is beautiful and functional while staying within your budget and timeline. When needed, we also work with architects/contractors to help bring your vision to life.

Expert Renovation Partnerships

Whether you are looking to update your home to sell or stay, work with us to transform your house into your perfect, dream home. We have great relationships with quality, reliable contractors to get any job done right and on time.

" On average, 95% of ASP staged homes sell in 11 days or less, and for 17% more. "

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a realtor. Why do I need a home stager?


Realtors and stagers work together. Realtors sell your house; we prepare your home to be sold. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® provides the latest research and statistics that affect the industry. Click here to get the stats and stay informed.




I like my style. Couldn't I technically do it myself?


Your style is your personal style. By staging your home, we depersonalize it. New buyers want to see your house as their new home - which is why we stage with the buyer in mind. Accredited Staging Professionals® or ASP's are trained in proper furniture placement, color trends, room design, decluttering and accessorizing to appeal to the widest range of buyers.




When should I begin the staging process?


It's best to stage your home before putting it on the market. You only get one chance to give a show-stopping performance. The first impression for potential buyers typically happens online, so great photos are key. House-hunters will then want to see specific updates and features during a walk-through. We can help them find their ideal home.




What differentiates you from other home stagers?


Our team at Paxem are Accredited Staging Professionals®, or ASPs. The founder of home staging, Barb Schwarz, a realtor, coined the term, "home staging", to describe her method in preparing homes for sale. Because it was such a powerful tool, she went about educating other realtors and home owners. Barb developed a curriculum for the ASP® designation. It is respected nationally by realtors, because we were trained by the best. We are proud to be members of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP) and Greater Chicago Illinois Regional Chapter®. Read more about the history of home staging.




My house is vacant and isn't selling. What should I do?


Call Paxem! A vacant home looks sterile. Most buyers can’t visualize their stuff in your space. It can also send a message that you are desperate and willing to accept a lower offer. We use updated furnishings and accessories to define rooms for what they are. A beautifully staged home will make potential buyers feel ready and excited to move in.
