Partial Home Staging

Partial Home staging is one of the services that Sarah Tiplady and Julie Kelman-Poto offer their clients.

When deciding to sell their property, many clients consider professional home staging to present their home. Home staging can really make a huge difference to both presentation and price when selling your home. Whilst it a luxury to have an empty house and professional home staging throughout the sake, it is not a reality for many clients that live in their property.

Where did these clients go for help? How do these clients still get an excellent professional presentation and successful result?

This was the reason Sarah and Julie developed their partial home staging service for their Auckland real estate clients. It started with clients ’who weren’t in a position to secure their own home staging. Sarah and Julie worked with their clients; dressing beds with white covers cushions and throws, advising on decluttering and presentation, and also adding in extra touches such as flowers and cushions on the couch.

It turned out that this is something that many clients have needed over the years. Many people accumulate a lot of personal items over many years in a home, and it’s difficult to know what to pack away for sale and what to keep on display.

Sarah and Julie collaborated closely with clients, providing advice and support as needed. Sometimes people have amazing home staging and just need a couple of extra touches, and Sarah and Julie have storage for a variety of staging items that enable them to offer complementary partial staging to their clients at their discretion.

The final dressing of a home can really set things apart for photographs, which in turn sets the property apart online and helps it gain more attention from buyers. This particular service has set Sarah and Julie apart from many other agents that don’t get in their boots and offer such practical service as part of the real estate selling process.

“Sarah and Julie sold our property for us and were amazing to deal with. They gave us great advice and helped with staging the property to make it look gorgeous, which I’m sure made a big difference to the sale. They were straight up and friendly, and we sold for more than we had ever expected to. They really worked with us and how we wanted to go through the process. We found them ethical, great at communicating, and just lovely to deal with – highly recommend!!!

“We are so appreciative of the amazing job Sarah and Julie did in selling our home in this tough market! Sarah and Julie were incredibly professional, thorough, and communicative. We really valued their expertise as they guided us through the entire process, from presentation and staging, to marketing, viewings and finally, a successful auction. Their staging contacts were really helpful, and their advice about how to present our house was invaluable. It was clear they were very proactive in following up every lead, and despite the difficult market, we had multiple bidders at our auction. They promptly answered all our questions and kept us in the loop frequently. We would absolutely recommend Sarah and Julie to anyone selling a property and will enlist their help again when the time comes to move in future.”

Partial Staging for Estate Sales

Sarah and Julie are rockstars when it comes to sprucing up homes for estate sales. They’ve have a vast experience selling properties in estate sales, making them professionals at partial home styling. This is one of the areas which clients often benefit from their partial home staging service. Many estate sales tend to be older properties with the original furnishings and furniture. But Sarah and Julie have worked with many of these clients to curate the furniture that has been left over and help them make decisions about what they will use to present during the home sale.

This can be a sensitive process with strong sentimental associations for the clients involved. Experience in this matter makes a huge difference to families, as they often want presentation of their family home in such a way that honours the history of the home and the family whilst also presenting the home to the market in a way that will secure the most buyers, all while receiving the best return for the family asset.

Real Estate Agents at Estate Sales

Sarah Tiplady and Julie Kelman-Poto, along with Winnie, have supported many clients through the process of deciding on what furniture to leave in the house and keeping it modern with more up-to-date furnishings. This includes adding in flowers and cushions and other finishing touches that set the property apart from the market.

Sometimes some of the most unique decorations that are meaningful to the owners and the history of the home, can really set off the presentation of a property. It might be a display of vintage books or ornaments, or tea pots and flowers from the garden. There are lots of ways that Julie and Sarah work with their clients before the property even goes to market to ensure their clients have the best experience when selling an estate sale and needing a partial staging service in Auckland.

Estate Sales Reviews

What’s the process of an estate sale?

Selling a house from an estate in New Zealand can feel like uncharted territory for many families. There is the family will, the beneficiaries, and the estate executor to consider.

Traditionally, once probate is granted by the courts, the title is issued with the name of either the executor or the new family member, The documentation is ready to start the process of approaching the market.

Getting some solid real estate advice about the presentation of the house is a key next step. Including a bit of styling magic is also crucial, whether it be a full home stage or some partial home staging, or in some cases, it might be better to sell the property empty. It’s good to make these decisions with your real estate agent, and this is often when clients get Sarah and Julie involved.

Estate Sales Reviews

“We were recommended to Julie and Sarah by a friend and are so happy we went with his advice. We are living in Australia and were dealing with a recent bereavement in NZ, as well as being the executors of the estate. We never met face to face, but the regular phone conferences and their sound knowledge of the Auckland market (of which we had little firsthand knowledge) and the logistics of dealing with the sale from overseas, made the process smooth and efficient. Julie and Sarah showed great empathy during a stressful time, and we obtained a great result.
I would recommend them if you need assistance in any Real Estate matters”.

”Sarah and Julie were amazing to deal with during the sale of an elderly person’s property. Right from the beginning, they communicated with all of the key players, and when the situation became complicated due to the death of the property owner, they were patient and creative and really went above and beyond to make things work in a difficult situation. Throughout, they did everything they could to reduce stress and cost. Their genuine and hard-working approach has resulted in a positive outcome for everyone.

“A big thank you to Sarah and Julie from Harcourts Mt Albert for handling the sale of our Mother’s property in Sandringham.
We would give them 5 stars, as they were incredibly easy to deal with, communication was excellent, and they offered their expertise at all times.

Their marketing of the property was excellent, and what they said they would do, they did. The staging of the property was great, and they also had a great auctioneer which helped us to achieve our goals for the property. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.”

“Thank you to Julie and Sarah for providing us with a professional but down-to-earth experience in selling our mum’s unit.

Selling mums home which she had lived in for over 35 years was hard enough, but you both understood our feelings and made the task so much easier for us all as a family. You guided us through the process smoothly and explained all our questions (we had lots!!), which put us at ease.
Your communication with us was well received and extremely helpful in obtaining a quick result.

We would definitely recommend anyone wanting to sell or buy and to achieve the best results to contact you first. Thank you again from us and mum.
