"Our house had been on the market for four and a half months before we engaged Distinctive Homes Northwest to stage it. The next visitor to view the house ended up buying it. Coincidence? We'll never know, but the greatly improved appearance of the house certainly made an impact. Evelyn Ryberg, owner of Distinctive Homes Northwest, goes about her work with great concentration and enthusiasm. We enjoyed working with her, were very pleased with the result, and recommend her to others." Robert W. and Marilee H., Homeowners
"I want to thank you soooooooooooo much because I am so pleased with how you staged the home. Thank you :)"
