Nan came to my home to consult on furniture placement and to help me sort through ideas for a number of home remodeling projects. Nan obviously enjoys what she does, and it translates into her work and personality. She is upbeat, friendly and filled with ideas and suggestions. I implemented some of the “easy” suggestions right away, and what a transformation to the room! It’s so reassuring to know I have someone available to provide advice and guidance as I decorate a new space.  Nancy W. (re-design client)

Hi Nan

I woke up this morning ready to make my house “perfect” for the next owner. Thank you so much for all your patience and understanding regarding this process. There was a great segment on The Today Show earlier about selling a home. It reassured me that I have been given great advice. Yesterday was most useful in that it truly did help me to see the house through a buyer’s eyes, and showed me many things I had done initially and had let fall by the wayside with time. And there were some little things I have never considered. Thank you for your help and especially the manner in which you present everything. You have a knack for showing the negative without making the owner feel like it’s directed at them personally. Our Real Estate Agent can definitely regard you as quite an asset in the selling process!  Ginger R. (seller)


Using Southern Staging & Redesign to prepare our home for resale, turned out to be a very wise and pleasant decision on our part. Nan is innovative and delightful to work with. Her creativity and good humor are only topped by her enthusiasm for her project. She transformed our property, was original and pleasant during the entire process. Yes, we would love to work with Nan again and plan to do so in the future.  The McBride’s (homeowner)

Good Afternoon Nan,

Put another feather in your cap! My house is under contract. My tentative move day is middle of May. I’m leaving for Florida Tuesday to purchase my future residence. I don’t think it would have been possible without your expertise in staging!  Thanks again, Bob M. (home seller)  Bob’s house had been on the market for 9 months! Approximately 45 days after staging process was completed, it was under contract!

“I had the opportunity to work with Nan and found her expertise, experience and her exuberant personality was just what I needed to help with staging my home. She had excellent ideas of which many I’ve already implemented. I appreciated her candor and her creativity. I hope we have an opportunity to work together on future home projects.”  V. Searcy, home owner

“We recently sold our home and I just wanted to share a tip that I think helped. While we only had two qualified buyers look at our home, I think it’s telling that both of them made offers. We contacted Nan Johnston at Southern Staging before we listed our house and we do think it made all the difference.   Nan’s insights into buyers’ perspectives were extremely valuable. Thanks to Nan, we knew exactly what to do to stage our home. She was absolutely professional, truly knowledgeable, and such a nice person to work with, I simply cannot find the words to recommend her highly enough! We feel her services were worth every penny in this sluggish market. Please note: I am not receiving any referral fee or compensation of any kind; I just really think staging our house made that much difference.”  Gloria B. (homeowner)

“Nan’s confident and energetic approach along with her past experience as a Realtor, make her the perfect solution for a listing agent’s staging needs. She understands that sometimes a seller is more receptive to a third party’s input and she can convey to the seller just what needs to be done to make a house ready for marketing. Nan can use her trained eye and easy going personality to put the seller at ease with what may be perceived as an overwhelming task.”  Laura C. (Realtor)

Thank you so much!! Ryan and I felt at ease with you. Your advice was great and now I am very excited about moving instead of dreading it. You did that for me. Thank You!!! I will send pictures and refer you whenever I can.  Mary (home buyer)

“Thanks so much for continuing to think about us and for the follow up phone calls. We’ve been very busy with our to-do and shopping list. The plate is pretty full for now. You have definitely  given me a good to-do list. Your thoughts and suggestions are very appreciated.”  M. Williams (home seller)

We contacted Southern Staging and Redesign to guide us on updating the kitchen and 2 baths in our 20+ year old home. Our goal was to make choices that are current now, that will remain current until we decide to sell in the future. Nan was prepared and offered ideas with a great deal of insight on what might work, and what might not work for a future buyer. Most importantly, she listened far more than she spoke, taking in all of the information and concepts we needed to share about our taste and what we wanted to achieve. She was able to temper our unusual taste issues with features needed to make the house marketable, while not sacrificing the quality or appearance of the remodel. Her follow-up communication was well thought out and insightful, and we will definitely use her again for future projects. We received far more vision and guidance than expected and were very pleased with the process and results. J & S Davis (home owner)

Nan Johnston offered some very creative ideas on staging my porch and other areas in my home prior to its sale. It is so easy to overlook some things that need doing to best present your home,  but her creativity is very inspiring!  Anne Hudson – Peachtree City, GA
