Ann Rudd is an Agent at our Ballantyne Office. Click her photo to learn more about her!

Helen Adams Realty thanks Ann Rudd for her continued service to all of her clients. Her most recent clients were impressed with her efforts to offer them the best in customer satisfaction. Here’s what they had to say:


Both my husband and I were beyond thrilled with Ann’s expertise, customer service, and overall attitude throughout our house-buying process.  She was very down-to-earth and made herself available to us 24/7.  We moved here from Maine, so we met for one crazy week of house hunting, and Ann found us not one, but two perfect houses in that short time.  She then handled everything for us in terms of getting our home under contract and following through with the mortgage company.  When we ran into a closing dilemma and our date was pushed back 2 weeks, Ann was able to work with an alternate mortgage company to get our closing done on time.  She corresponded with the mortgage people on our behalf and even did the initial walk-through with the builder (as part of the closing process) because we could not be down here to do it ourselves.  We really feel that she went above and beyond in her duties and will gladly recommend her whenever we hear of someone looking for an agent. She was truly a miracle worker;  we couldn’t have made the move without her!   THANK YOU, ANN!!!

 

Congratulations to Ann on this wonderful review, we’re so proud to have you represent Helen Adams Realty!

Staging is a big part of prepping your home to sell! We talk a lot about all the different tips and tricks for each room of your home and what you can do to help create the perfect space for buyers to envision their dream homes, but what about the staging  No-no’s? Those exist too! When you think about staging and what NOT to do, you often think about clutter or personalizing decor but there are also some pretty common mistakes that people make that you want to try to avoid if possible! Realtor.com listed 5 Design Trends to Avoid as you work through staging your home. They include things that are coming back into style that might be best to exclude if you’re thinking of re-doing a space just to sell your home.

1. Avoid Wallpaper. Even if its a bold graphic pattern, which is really in right now, you have to create a space that appeals to a wide array of tastes. Additionally, you have to think about the work that might be associated on the back end for someone to turn that space into their own. Removing wallpaper in a room isn’t exactly an easy task.

 

2. Bright Paints. Even though accent walls and bright saturated colors are on trend right now, it’s best to keep things light and neutral if you are repainting as a part of your staging efforts. It’s best to stick to neutrals on the walls, but if you’re up for using bright colors, try using accents, like throw pillows or blankets to liven up the space.

 

3. Brass Fixtures. Word on the street is brass is back, but that doesn’t mean you need to rush out and replace all your knobs and lights to be on trend. If it’s something you’re interested in including, just remember a little bit goes a long way!

 

4. Open Cabinets. Another trend that we’re seeing everywhere is open face cabinets. This allows you to put your items on display instead of hiding them behind doors, but professional stagers say its best to steer clear of open storage. Remember not everyone needs a place to display items, they simply need to maximize storage, and having to add doors back to cabinets  isn’t always a cheap fix.

 

5. Tuscan Themed Decor. Rustic earth tones have been the palette of choice for a while now, more commonly referred to as Tuscan, but these design elements are seeing a decline and positioning your entire staging effort around it may not be your best option. Things are trending towards more clean and modern and away from Tuscan and french provincial, some homes are adapting a more transitional style that includes the best of both worlds, so if you’re reluctant to leave the old behind for a new look, this might be the way to go!

 

Whether you’re doing a complete remodel or just freshening up a few things here and there, making sure that your staging appeals to the most people is going to be key to ensuring your home gets all the right attention!
