I am a Realtor working in the Geneva market and had a customer with some challenging decorating. Their home was like all homes, it was perfect for them, but not perfect for what I needed to get the home sold in today’s market. Madeline and Chess came in, totally transformed the home and we got it sold in less then 1 week. The have a great sense of style, and know what todays buyers want. They have lots of inventory and will work with you. But their expertise and vision is un-matched and irreplaceable in today’s market. Use, and trust them without hesitation.

Recently I had the pleasure to work with Chess Valenti at Staged. What a wonderful experience! Chess worked effortlessly with my client and I to professionally stage a one bedroom condo. Chess had the creative ability to turn a one bedroom condo into a multi room living space to appeal to the maximum amount of buyers. Chess took the time to learn the demographic and enhanced the seller’s experience by giving her options and suggestions to further enhance the value of her property. I was amazed at how fast it all came together and how pleased my client was with the end results. Thank you Chess!
