"Tamara had the considerable challenge of staging one of my new listings; a brand new home, virtually empty, with soaring ceilings and thousands of feet of square footage to fill. She had a vision for how the space could be utilized, and how best to take advantage of the abundant natural light and open floor plan of the home. The results were stunning and stylish, and elicited an overwhelmingly positive reaction from prospective buyers. On top of that, it was a pleasure to work with Tamara from start to finish!"

"Tamara has helped stage several of my listings over the years and, without fail, we have received offers right away. The buyers can really feel themselves living in these homes and the quality of her furnishings are beyond compare. The attention to the little details is what sets her apart."

"I am so happy that I hired Tamara Ruccione to stage my listing in Montecito. What a professional with outstanding taste! She works tirelessly to make sure every last detail is taken care of. Tamara is always on time, enthusiastic, and loves what she does. Boy does that show! She doesn't stage homes that look all the same. That is a problem with quite a few stagers in this market. Her ideas are unique for the particular home and style. I can't wait to work with her again."

"Tamara did a marvelous job transforming an empty home I listed for sale. The palette she had to work with in the living room was challenging, and my clients were astounded at how beautifully her color choices brought everything together. We liked that she came by each week to check the home and water plants. The staging made all the difference in selling the property quickly and for a very good price."
