Senses: What you see and smell as soon as you walk in to a home will be your first impression. As I assess your home we will walk through room by room taking notes on our first impressions, what grabs us, and what gives us a feeling of home. Buyers will form a first impression immediately upon entering the home or from viewing the photos so we need to entice the senses.

Eliminate Clutter: The packing starts now! You may need to pack away a good percentage of everything in the room to create a more open, clean and specious feeling.  You are moving anyway, so start packing now!  During our consultation we will discuss what should be packed and remember, every square inch sells so we need to make each room look and feel as spacious as possible.

Underscore The Positive and Downplay the Negative: Finding your beautiful focal points, we will emphasize what we love about each room and downplay the negative aspects of a room.

Turn Up The Lighting: Focusing on lighting and color, we will turn each room into a bright, warm and inviting space to which buyers will respond.

Take Away and Pack Personal Photos: In order for a buyer to make this feel like their home, it is important for them to be presented with a depersonalized "canvas" upon which they can visualize themselves in.  I will help you depersonalize the space while retaining warmth with  art that I bring in.

Emotional Connection Points - Creating the "Wow" Factor:  This is my specialty and is a huge focus in our strategy.  I will build these subtleties in order to make the buyer subconsciously desire this house and feel at home. Building emotional connection points is where my marketing background and training come together.  To say I am an expert in this field is an understatement.

Revisions and Modernizations: Sometimes this involves updating your style.  Other times is simply means editing the current accessories. When needed, I will do this by infusing my updated style with some of your accessories to create clean lines, scale, rhythm and form.  The updated accessories I bring in will go a long way in getting buyers to fall in love with your home.

So, are you ready to make your home sell fast?

Ruth Seutter was a dynamic gift that I didn’t know I needed. A decisive instrument in the transaction of an arduous sort, that being the sale of our home.  A home is a tangible object that stores, nurtures and cultivates our dreams for the future. It is next to impossible to take an unbiased look at our homes from the owner’s perspective and remove our personalities and taste good or bad from what was so important to us. Ruth has the artistic talent, creative edge, experience of marketing in industry coupled with the humble realities that we the seller live on a budget and every dime counts. She made our home flash in strategic points capturing the imagination of the buyer, captivating their dreams for the future in what will soon be their home.   Ruth thank you so much for teaming with us.

As a potential buyer steps into the house, exclamations of "Wow" and "Beautiful" can be heard if Ruth Seutter has staged your home. She knows how much furniture to use, where to place it and what kind of lighting, gentle smells and what simple accessories to display in the rooms to make them their very best.  Ruth is an expert at forming an emotional connection between the viewer and the home.  I wouldn't sell my house without her!

My husband and I are finally living our dream in Florida thanks to Ralph and Ruth Seutter. They were with us all the way as we prepared to sell our home in Virginia Beach. Ralph and Ruth are true professionals and will do whatever it takes to care for their clients during the process. Our house was on the market for only four days before it sold. The icing on the cake was the staging process. Ruth did an amazing job and the house looked like a model home you'd see in a magazine, it was fabulous. Thanks Team Seutter for helping us fulfill our dream.

Ruth is very creative and can make anything look beautiful on a very tight budget.  She finds great deals and in some cases even free items infusing them into the home's style making it look fabulous.  She has an elegant, practical approach and is consistently thinking outside of the box.  No detail is ever missed with Ruth.

I worked alongside Ruth as she organized a staff of people to declutter, paint, finish incomplete projects and clean a client’s home.  To say that she gave it a facelift is an understatement!  She did an outstanding job, which prompted a contract on the first showing!  Ruth’s successful project management skills and calm nature with contractors is what it took to get the job completed ... and on time.   Ruth is not only a successful project manager; she also offers a uniquely creative way of staging to create interest and understands the client’s needs.  She’s certainly a doer and brings joy to the task at hand working harder than anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Ruth for over 20 years.  Her commitment to excellence combined with her amazing work ethic added such value to our business.  Ruth is that rare combination of being extremely creative and well skilled in project management.  Her eye for style and detail combined with her ability to plan and implement many different types of projects at once always impressed me.  Ruth is one of the most talented people I have come in contact with and she is so very fun to work with.  She is quick-witted and has such positive energy that you feel good with every interaction.

I have known Ruth Seutter for a number of years, but recently, finally had the priviledge of witnessing the talented gift she has in staging homes.  Friends of mine decided to move to Florida and needed to sell their home quickly.  This home was lived in for several years but was brimming with clutter.  Staging is an important step in preparing any house for sale and Ruth is a fabulous person to help make a home look its best.  Besides having good sense of style and design, Ruth is a pleasure to work with, always working in a timely fashion and with lots of humor.  Best of all, she keeps the budget in check, enabling the homeowners to make their house look like the magazines without spending a fortune.  Ruth has a gift of acquiring perfect balance between usability and visual appearance which allows the homes "personality" to be revealed through the decor.  The transformation in my friends' home was absolutely amazing and led to a contract the first day of being on the market.  My husband and I plan on selling our house in a few years and I can't wait to see the changes in our home when Ruth waves her magic wand!

Had it not been for the Seutter team our home would not have sold as soon as it did. It took only two weeks from putting a sign out to getting a contract. Ruth has a keen eye for staging a house so anyone could see it as their home. The team works with, not just for the homeowner to make your home stand out to house hunters, and does their best to make it comfortable for you to still live in until that "sold" sign goes up. I highly recommend this team to anyone thinking about putting their home on the market. They made a very stressful time go so much easier.

Ruth Seutter has been an amazing asset on several different projects I have been a part of. As part of a pastoral staff at a local church, I was responsible for many different types of projects, from start to finish. I recruited Ruth and her team and it was the best decision I could have ever made. Ruth's creativity, work ethic and ability to be flexible and work outside the box were crucial to the success of these events. She was always willing to tackle any theme I threw her way and consistently brought a level of professionalism and expertise that were vital to helping me pull these projects off with style. I would recommend Ruth to anyone looking for a partner that can be trusted to bring style and excellence to any project.
