Jonathan Payne, Agent with Keller Williams:
"Staging a home is not an easy job - getting the style right, along with all the physical and timing aspects needed, can be a headache, to say the least.
Nicole addressed these issues with aplomb and pleased everyone in the process. The house received excellent feedback, despite some tricky layout issues, and we were in contract within two weeks. Kudos for her help in the process!"
Rebecca "Tiger" Harrison, Agent with Keller Williams:
"Nicole helped our seller get more money in less time!!!!! She is professional, reliable, and our first choice when it comes to getting a home dressed to sell!"
Victoria Williams Turner, Broker:
"I was contacted by a seller whose property was previously on the market for 65 days. They asked me to come view their property and help them sell it. Upon visually inspecting the vacant property I noticed several features around the home that would have possibly gone unnoticed by perspective buyers. There was also an extra small space, an undefined nook, that the seller mentioned was a waste of space. I highly recommended that they stage the property, using Allure Home staging, prior to me putting it on the market. Allure did a fabulous job of bringing out the best features of the home and the photos were amazing. After being on the market for only 8 days, we received 3 offers and thanks to Allure I sold their property well over the asking price I would highly recommend Allure to all my clients and to all real estate professionals"

Umala Mitchell-Palley, Agent with Golden Gate Sotheby's:
"Nicole and her team's staging got my listing a ton of compliments, and in the end, even more offers! She highlights the best parts of a property; and she knows how to bring out the best in the not so flattering areas as well."
Michelle Lewis, Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage:
"Nicole did an excellent job staging my listing. She selected appropriate furniture that enlarged the small space we were working with giving the illusion that the house was bigger than it was. The furniture she selected was also very classic and modern giving the property an upscale feel. Multiple Realtors and buyers commented on how well the home was staged and how modern it made the space feel. The property sold in 7 days with multiple offers and well above asking price! I am certain a large part of the success was due to the great staging!
If you are considering staging, I 100% recommend having your home staged with Allure Home Staging."

Patricia Tam, Agent with PACIFIC Sales & Management:
"We want to thank you for doing an excellent job of staging our condominium. We appreciate the fact that you have a good eye for color and furniture arrangement. You were very diligent and timely in turning over the condo to us fully decorated. We will definitely recommend your services to friends in need of staging their property."

Margaret Lin, Agent with Coldwell Banker:
"I have been in full time real estate for over 33 years. Within that time, I also had a warehouse and staged numerous homes for clients for about 8 years. I have worked with numerous stagers from primarily Walnut Creek to Danville to Solano County. This is the very first time that I am writing a review for a stager.
Nicole Normant from Allure is by far the most professional stager I have ever come across. I believe that staging is an art and a science, and is a skill that can be learned. What differentiates Nicole from my other stagers is that she "listens" to the client and she takes criticisms and "hears" what they envision.This is customer service and that is special. She returned to the home three times to tweek the staging to perfection until the seller was satisfied, and the photography was exact.
My listing just sold with multiple offers in 14 days as scheduled, 18.5% over asking, all non-contingent. All interest buyers, their agents and neighbors commented on the beautiful staging and the tasteful furnishings. I highly recommend Nicole and her very professional and team."
