“I hired Elite Staging to furnish and stage my two new construction homes to sell. They created the most amazing interiors and went well beyond what was proposed. The finished project was so amazing that I wanted to move in myself. The work was completed on time, under budget and was such a benefit that I promise to use them for every single staging project going forward. It was the best experience I ever had working with a staging company.”

Kristine is a home staging ROCK STAR!!! There is no question – she is the BEST stager hands down which is why we use her to stage all our luxury properties. She’s incredibly talented, professional and responsive. I have called her on a Sunday afternoon and received a proposal within 24 hours. The house, which had previously sat on the market for a full year without offers, was completely transformed and we received and accepted an offer shortly after!!! On a personal note, she is a lovely human being with a huge heart!!

“I use Elite Staging and Redesign exclusively to stage all my new construction, luxury Short Hills, NJ listings. Kristine is a design genius and the quality of her work and inventory always exceeds my highest expectations. I work primarily with builders and they wouldn’t think of using any other staging company!  Kristine is also brilliant with paint colors and textiles, having her pulse on what’s trending in our area.  A consummate professional, she is painstaking with every last detail as seen in her work. Elite Staging is simply the best of the best!”

“I hired Elite Staging and Redesign to stage a new listing that really needed some TLC. Not only did Kristine do a fantastic job, she finished ahead of schedule and my clients were thrilled with her work as was I. The open house was a huge success and I had a signed contract within two weeks of putting the home on the market. Kristine is professional, great to work with and a very talented stager. I will continue to work with her in the future and highly recommend her to anyone planning on selling their home.”

I’ve been a Realtor for over 25 years and until I worked with Kristine Ginsberg of Elite Staging and Redesign I didn’t think home staging made that much of a difference. Wow, was I wrong! She meticulously staged my listing, paying attention to every last detail. I was amazed at her talent, arranging and rearranging the furniture until it work perfect in every room. When she finished the difference was night and day.  Kristine is an incredibly gifted designer/stager and I recommend her to all my clients.”

“Kristine’s work is as good as it gets! Once she staged my home it looked stunning and we got offers within the first week of it going on the market. We had a signed contract in less than 2 weeks! She went above and beyond all my expectations, which isn’t easy to do as a perfectionist myself. I could never have staged my own home and her creativity and expertise have proven invaluable!” 

My house in Chatham, NJ is fantastic, but empty, potential buyers couldn’t see how to live in it. Kris considered not just the house’s layout and flow, but the demographics of the town and exactly who our buyers would be. Then she staged accordingly. She only put in quality rental furniture, and then accessorized beautifully — all in a neutral pallet that didn’t just incorporate the best features of the house, but brought them out and highlighted them. In other words, she staged the house in a way that focused the buyers on what was great about the house, not just what was great about her and her decorating. That is a very special skill. In fact, I’m confident our house because of her staging expertise.

Other important things to point out: 1) She was really personable, professional and easy to work with.
2) She respected my budget and didn’t try to nickel and dime me. 3) She cared.

Would I hire her again? In a heartbeat.

“I hired Kristine to stage my open concept condominium and was thrilled with the results. She worked mainly with the furniture I had and rearranged  it in a way that made it look so stylish. Once she brought in her accessories, my home never looked so wonderful! Kristine is an exceptionally talented stager and I received multiple offers in the first week of showing and was under contract in less than 2 weeks! Kristine is a consummate professional, a joy to work with and will  give you 110%! She is so talented I hired her to redesign my new lake front home which now looks like it belongs on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens!”

Brigitte Bromberg, Montville, NJ

“My listing agent recommended Kristine for her expertise to stage my home before putting it on the market. I was skeptical at first, but after seeing the transformation she made, I was deliriously happy. Within 3 days of the first open house, we received a bid, accepted the offer by the week’s end and were under contract within a week. You can’t get better results than that! Kristine was great to work with and our entire experience was so positive. If you want results, call Kristine from Elite Staging and Redesign – she’s a delight to work with!” 

~ Nicole Wilce, Morris Plains, NJ

“Kristine’s staging exceeded my expectations and my home never looked better. Her work is amazing and she is wonderful to work with and goes the extra mile. Due to inclement weather, Kristine couldn’t get exterior photos and came back the next day (we weren’t even home) and took beautiful outdoor photos even moving my garbage cans and a basket ball hoop! My Mountain Lakes, Weichert agents who had previously told me, “You do not need a stager” were so impressed after viewing Kristine’s work, they asked for her card to use Elite Staging and Redesign for their future listings. In addition, they loved her MLS photos which she emailed to them upon completion of the job.”

~  Kim Chupak, Morris Plains, NJ

 “We found Kristine’s company on the Internet and after viewing her portfolio of work we hired her to stage our home. She suggested we paint our living room, rent smaller scale furniture and store about 30% to open up the room’s size. Then she staged our home beautifully, bringing in high-end accessories that really completed the look.  The next day our two biggest critics (our daughters) said it was like watching one of those make-over TV shows. The ultimate compliment was when the buyer’s agent wanted me to stage for her thinking I decorated our home!  The best news is we had a signed contract for full asking price only 2 days after listing our home!  We can only say that Kristine is a perfectionist in her work and a true professional, paying attention to every last detail. We feel that Kristine became a true partner with us in selling our home and was always there for us with suggestions and advice. We couldn’t have done it without her!”

“This was my fifth house on the market and what made this time different was hiring Kristine Ginsberg from Elite Staging and Redesign to stage and take the MLS photos of our home. Being new to staging I wasn’t sure what to expect and somewhat apprehensive. Kristine was sincere, friendly and best of all not judgmental during the consultation. Two days later Kristine returned and immediately went to work.

I watched as this amazing woman enhanced my colors and design, added interest where needed and removed clutter where necessary. The transformation was incredible. She was able to turn an average room into a GREAT room; the lighting, the color, the simplicity that added such elegance without pretension was amazing.  All along the way her camera was constantly clicking. She was fast, agile, polite and friendly. Her MLS photos were perfect; bright, clean, clear, every detail down to the wires from the side lamp were addressed. She is a perfectionist with a very good eye for detail. The results are a never ending stream of compliments from buyers, friends and family. When I purchase my next home, I will hire Kristine to utilize her redesign services!”
