I am so excited! I have a contract on my house just a mere month since you staged it. My house had been on the market for 1 year without offers. Your ideas really made a difference. I truly appreciate this.


Dear Connie,

We cannot thank you enough for helping us to sell our home so quickly! I just cannot believe that, with only one open house, we had three offers that very same afternoon. We know that it is due to a very large part to your Staging our home so beautifully! We had no idea that our home could look so beautiful, warm, and inviting - right down to the champagne and glasses in the sauna. You are "heaven sent" and we so greatly appreciate your help. It was so much fun working with you. I, for one, can sure say that STAGING DOES WORK!

Thanks again,

Mr. & Mrs. Ronald Sanders

We have known Peggy Grace for many years and have utilized her real estate expertise on several occasions. Because of her proven knowledge and professionalism and our past successes with her, we would have never considered using any other real estate professional!

Our most recent experience with Par Realty is the best one yet! Peggy brought in a "staging" professional, Connie Thomas, to explore and critique our 2-story, 2900-plus square foot home in Lafayette, Louisiana's Georgetown Square neighborhood, off of Kaliste Saloom Road.

Connie spent about an hour in and outside of our home and sent a three page listing to us by email the same day of all of the things that needed to be removed, cosmetically changed, replaced and/or moved. She also included decorating suggestions in order to "stage" our home for the best possibilities of a quick sale. Although Connie was firm with her findings, she was much more gentle than what you see on HGTV!

In other feelings were not hurt at all! I was actually energized and inspired by the fact that we had a list of tasks to do that was compiled by someone other than us! The guess work disappeared with our introduction to a professional stager.

We chose to do almost everything suggested to our ten-year-old home. We de-cluttered, painted neutral colors inside and out, cleaned carpets, removed personal photos, rearranged furniture, updated fixtures and floral arrangements, scrubbed from top to bottom and then de-cluttered some more! Her objectivity was just what we needed and at a very reasonable and justifiable price!

We have bought and sold homes before and never have we had such a quick
sale as this one! Within six days on the market, we had a solid contract for very close to our asking price. We are convinced that "staging" our home did the trick! It looked clean, open and airy and ready to move into after Connie's pointers were implemented.

We could not have had a better experience without the team of Peggy Grace and Connie Thomas!

Dear Connie,

Thank you so much for the beautiful job that you and Tanna did on the clubhouse at Village Charmant. I have received so many compliments! You are not only a great decorator, but, a savvy business owner. Your organization, attention to detail, promptness, and most notable—working within our budget- shows your commitment to satisfying your customers. I have already and will continue to refer potential customers to you. Thank you again for the great job and I look forward to working with you again on future projects.

Just a little note to tell you that you are going to be an incredible asset to my team. Your sharp eye, casual manner and confident recommendations instill my clients with trust and comfort.

Using/rearranging my clients "stuff" rather than going out and making purchases is so reassuring to them. Your tips on staging homes for sale add a whole new dimension to real estate.

I look forward to a long prosperous relationship with you.

Dear Connie,

I wanted to let you know how much I love my new living area! Before, it lacked any sense of style and now, you have given my room a real direction. It feels so warm and cozy. Me and my children are really loving it!

I can’t believe what you were able to accomplish with only $150! It is truly unbelievable!

I can’t wait for you to be able to do another room for us!

I just wanted to say "thanks" for all of your help! I'm loving the stuff you did and I can't wait to finish with the rest.

Just a note to thank you for your awe inspiring creativity in the guest room makeovers.

Thank you for allowing us to watch you in motion during the first guest room makeover. You surrounded me with all the things I love from antiques to my hummingbird collection.

The den looks so cozy and warm. We love the fact that you used what we have collected over the years.

My favorite is the way you made the patio area look. Your to-do list for me was great. It made me feel as though I could tackle anything. Thank you for making my favorite place so inviting.

Andy and I want to thank you again.

Karen Reed


Thank you so much for doing a great job in my bathroom.

I can hardly wait for you to work your magic in the rest of my house.

Dear Mrs. Thomas,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job you did with our home. My fiancé and I love all the changes you made. I look forward to coming home every day to our lovely house. Everything just fits in with our personalities and lifestyle.

We have many friends who come over for visits and all of them comment on our lovely house. I always let them know that you were responsible for all of it. It was a pleasure working with you and thank you for taking the time to make our home just right for us. I will definitely recommend your services to all of my friends and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Dear Connie,

I am so thrilled to have a new home in my old home! You did a marvelous transformation from plain and ordinary to warm and inviting. It is a pleasure to see the "things" I had used to make this transformation. After meeting you the first time, trusting you and Tana was not a consideration. It was easy to see you knew what you were doing. You also respected our opinions and likes and worked with us in selecting everything. We very much got our money’s worth....a new look for our home and two new friends.

Hi Connie,

Just wanted to let you know how excited I am about my new living room and all of the ideas for the rest of my house.

My living room area now has such a warm, cozy and relaxing area for all of my family.
Your quick eye to view and put pieces together is such a talent, and I am so glad and thankful that we got to work together. Although, our work isn't finished yet with the rest of my house, I just can't thank you enough for all of your ideas, knowledge, and placements of everything in my house that I already had. Not having to spend extra money was the best for the redesign of my living room.

Can't wait to get started and work with you on the rest of my home.

Thank you again so very much,
Brandi Mire

Dear Connie,

I can’t thank you enough for all of your help in preparing to sell my home. Being a widow with children that are scattered, I was quite overwhelmed. And even though it sold before I was able to accomplish the more time-consuming suggestions, you got me motivated and gave me directions. The basic organizational teachings were very helpful, and your ideas on how to show my house at its best advantage were invaluable. Now the move will be so much more efficient and pleasant.

I know you were heaven sent!

Very gratefully,
Jane Blair

Hi Connie,

Just wanted to say that you did a great job on the "Ho-Hum" basement room featured on the Kiplinger website. We have a VERY similar basement room with the samecabinets/shelves/fireplace layout. After seeing what you did with the cabinets/bookcase, I emailed the link to my wife and said "Let's do this with our basement!" Thanks for your great example and I hope our efforts can look half as good as yours

Thanks for sharing your work,
