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.
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!

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
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 words...my 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
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!

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.
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.

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
Andy and I want to thank you again.
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
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
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.

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
Thank you again so very much,
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!
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,
