Who Cecily B. is

In 2001, I was merchandising for a very successful home furnishings/decorating/gift store in Easton, MD, called "Bountiful Interiors". Week after week, as I re-arranged floor displays & store merchandise, customers would approach me and comment that they wished I could work "my magic", as they referred to my work, in their own homes with what they already owned! And that is how the wheels started turning for me. By 2004, I became a MD. real estate agent selling waterfront & high end real estate properties on the Chesapeake Bay. But in 2005, the RE market head south, I founded Cecily B. Home Staging as a way to help struggling listings sell. It worked! I held my real estate license through 2015.
My staging business took grew faster than I ever imagined. As an Agent, I knew what buyers were looking for in a home and as a Stager, I knew how to merchandise the home with what the Seller already owned. I was fast, efficient and very cost effective. Today, I operate the same way I started...working with what you already have. I can purchase accessories if necessary and advise on larger purchases. I stand by my motto, "Highlighting your home's best features makes all the difference" so less is really more! You owe it to yourself or your Client to call today, you will not be disappointed.

When I started home staging, it was an option. Today, home staging is a necessity!

About Us
AT WORK IN YOUR HOME WITH WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE. Now serving the Sarasota, Osprey & Nokomis areas.
As a 10 year home stager veteran with extensive real estate experience, I am very effective in strategic placement of your furniture and accessories so that they will highlight the home's best features. I work with interiors as well as exteriors because first impressions start outside the front door. My 10 year background as a MD. real estate agent has been invaluable in understanding what the buyer is seeking in a home and adapting the listing to fit those needs.
At our 1st meeting, I can offer immediate on site results with innovative designs. My staging track record is exceptional. I also staged 3 homes in 2011 for an episode of HGTV's "House Hunters on Vacation". See www.linkedin.com/in/cecilyschneider for the show producer's testimonial.
