"It was your work that had us at hello."
This is what buyer's agent Cara O'Halloran said when she saw my home staging and color consultation work at a listing that her client purchased for OVER ASKING.
Since then, Cara and House Candy have worked together on a dozens of projects, and counting! I'm so glad we met.
Home Owner/ Color Consultation & Home Staging Client
Ashley did a great job selecting paint colors and carpeting as well as beautiful staging to help sell our rental condo quickly. She was absolutely on time with everything she said she was going to do and the final staging looked so good I had second thoughts about selling! She was very easy to work with and I would definitely work with her again.

"I worked with House Candy Home Staging virtually as I am based outside NYC. Ashley was amazing! She gave awesome tips that were easy to execute, provided examples of how I should style, sent shopping lists of her favorite plants, and guided me room-by-room. I was able to shop and implement her ideas all in one day. On the first weekend our house was on the market, we got 5 offers--3 over ask--and had an accepted offer 2 days after the first open house. My broker said it was all due to the staging. Thanks, Ashley!!!! We would not have gotten such a high sale price without you!"
Home Staging, Color Consultation Client- Home Owner
Where do I begin? When Ashley showed up to take a look at our house to stage it, we fell in love with her. When she left, my husband and I looked at each other and said, we are in good hands. Today was staging day and she did not disappoint. Ashley is absolutely amazing. From the tiniest of details, to hanging a picture, and everything in between, she is magical. Not to mention, she is delightful. You don't have to sell your home to hire her. Let her beautify your home.
"I recently bought a home and after seeing House Candy Staging signs at all the best houses we saw house hunting, I knew I wanted to work with her to make our new house feel like our dream home.
Ashley is really positive and easy to work with! She has a great eye and and has been full of helpful recommendations on how to make our space look its best and flow well, all while being functional and kid friendly. She has been a skilled partner in everything from recommending paint colors to mocking up different furniture options to maximize our small patio - to harmonizing old and new furniture to work cohesively in our living room. She is a gem and I would highly recommend working with her! I would work with her for home staging or interior design again in a heart beat." Lauren

Ashley with House Candy Home Staging is nothing short of amazing! Recently I bought a house and was looking for a fresh start. I have 3 teenage boys and needed something comfortable and durable but I also wanted my house to be visually appealing and inviting. Ashley had me come up with 3 guiding words for our plan. I decided on sophisticated, welcoming and eclectic. I wanted help placing my furniture and some advice on buying some new pieces- a new couch, coffee table, chairs and throw pillows. With Ashley's color consultation and decorating sense we worked together to find pieces that not only matched in color but in style. I love that Ashley styled with my own accessories. It made my home flow well visually and also very comfortable because they were my things that I had collected over the years. I'm so thrilled with the results! I find that we all hang out together in living room much more than we ever have. Thank you Ashley for making my new house a home, a sophisticated, eclectic, and welcoming home!

Ashley is terrific! She has a great sense of style and really understands the purpose of staging. She has a friendly and helpful attitude and is dedicated to the project. She's easy to work with and is super professional and thoughtful. I'm excited to work with her again.
Home Owner/Occupied Staging Client
When it was time to sell our beautiful custom home, we knew it would be important to make sure the home was presented in a way that validated our asking price. We took Ashley's advice and made the investment to purchase several new items to stage our home. We added new outdoor furniture and fresh, seasonal decorations for our outdoor living spaces, as well as some welcoming touches such as plants, table setting pieces, housewares and pillows to give our home that relaxing 'at home' feel inside. The added color and special touches really made all of the spaces in our home feel welcoming! We believe the investment in the home staging items, as well as our beautiful home brochure designed by Ashley, helped sell our house in just a few days at our asking price and with multiple offers. Presenting your home beautifully so people just want to move right in is such an important part of the selling process.
Real Estate Professional, Coldwell Banker
Ashley with House Candy Staging is amazing. Ashley has an eye for design and color, plus she is absolutely, the SWEETEST. My husband asked Ashley to help with design ideas for three bathrooms he was remodeling. The clients loved her ideas, her price was reasonable and they are thrilled with the results. I have referred Ashley to a number of our agents at Coldwell Banker and they have all been so happy with her staging and design consults. You can't go wrong with Ashley at House Candy Staging. She's simply the BEST!!!

Real Estate Agent/ Interior Decorating & Home Staging Client
Ashley with House Candy Staging is AMAZING!! As a personal friend for 20+ years I have ALWAYS admired Ashley's style and now as a realtor and recommending her to our clients for home staging and design we couldn't be happier. Her attention to detail, professionalism and eye for design are unmatched. She has staged many homes for us and I can say that all of them sold QUICKLY and I attribute so much of that to her! Buyers were constantly saying "This feels like home, I can see myself here", "It's beautiful and comfortable at the same time, I don't want to leave!" One buyer actually said they may not have bought the house without her staging. She pays attention to every detail, big or small, and makes every home feel like a showplace. On top of all that Ashley is hands down one of the nicest people you will ever meet! I can guarantee that you will be more then pleased with Ashley and House Candy Staging and I can't recommend her enough!!
Realtor- Sereno Group
I was so impressed at the transformation of my listing on Ponderosa Ct. after Ashley worked her staging redesign magic! The space had an entirely different feel which was so well received by prospective buyers who immediately began to comment on how "warm and inviting" the space was. Ashley has a gift for design and excellent business acumen. She interacts thoughtfully and thoroughly with you and your clients to help you work together to put the property's best foot forward. The goal is sold and you will absolutely get there successfully with Ashley's keen eye and hard work.

Ashley has been the answer to all of my decorating needs. Her sense of style is intuitive, which is excellent for someone like me who needs help! I love how she can pick out key-elements and bring everything in my house together so that it looks like our remodel happened at one time, rather than room-by-room over a span of 15 years. Her attention to detail and her ability to use light and space effectively will bring your entire home together.

Home Owners/Occupied Staging Client
Ashley consulted with us on how to best present our home that we were living in while it was on the market. She helped us edit our belongings to show off the most important features of the house. She also turned an additional storage room with concrete floors into a usable office/artists studio. She quickly transformed the room with items we already owned. We were delighted by the transformation. Our house looked truly special and it showed better than anything else on the market- we received multiple offers .
