Looking to sell? Would you like to add 10% to the value of your property, and take the stress away from moving?
Designed to Sell is a homestaging company, operating in the Essex area. We help Property Owners and Landlords stage and style their properties.
This ensures the properties appeal to the widest range of potential buyers, achieve maximum value and sell in the shortest time frame!
When you are selling, it is important to show the property off to its best potential. Home Staging is the process of de-cluttering, arranging furniture, adding colour and arranging the space so buyers can visualise what a property has to offer, and what it would be like to live in such a beautiful home. Staging a home will highlight its best features, and create a stronger emotional connection with the potential buyers.
Most people can’t visualise a space other than how it is presented to us, which is why properties can achieve, on average, a 10% higher sale price when dressed.
There may be no investment on the sellers part – a simple de-clutter and cleaning can sometimes be all you need. If there is a financial investment for painting, minor repairs, furniture rental, storage costs etc., potential returns make it worthwhile. The average cost of a complete staging is usually much less than your first price reduction.
So, if you are looking to sell quickly, and would like to add value to your property, call us to discuss how Designed to Sell can help you.

Jackie is based in Upminster, Essex. She has always had a strong interest in art and design, studying art at school, and then doing a degree in Design Studies, where she attained a 2:1. (Hons)
Her initial career was as a graphic designer, focusing on event branding, marketing materials and publications for financial houses, studios and publishing house in London. She worked for over 20 years as a designer at various businesses.
More recently, while working Jackie studied Interior Design under Louise’s tuition, and gained a Distinction in City and Guilds Level 3 Interior Design. She also studied a short Home Staging course with Louise. Initially this was for personal interest, but after finding that she loved it so much, Jackie made plans to leave her position in the City, to pursue her career in Homestaging.
Louise and Jackie started Designed to Sell in 2018, and Jackie completed the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) training to become one of their first Accredited Staging Professionals in Europe. She has also studied with Liv Conlon of The Property Stagers and passed the Staging Business Accelerator course. She is a professional member of the Home Staging Association UK & Ireland (HSA).
Louise initially studied Interior Design and gained various qualifications in this field. She worked on many private design projects whilst continuing her studies. As well as Interior Design, Louise has also studied Feng Shui, and found that she has a real passion for it.
She went into teaching City and Guilds Interior Design, which she loved and did this for nearly 14 years. Whilst teaching Interior Design, Louise also wrote and created a Feng Shui in Interior Design course, which she also taught. Another course that Louise devised was Home Styles through the ages, that looked at historic design styles such as Georgian, Victorian and Art Deco and showed how these styles could be recreated in homes today.
Alongside her teaching, Louise studied with Ann Maurice ‘The House Doctor’ and learnt about home staging, which she then went on to teach at her college. Although no longer teaching, Louise has a passion for interior design, Feng Shui and homestaging, so Designed to Sell was started with her business partner Jackie (an ex pupil) in 2018.
