I hired The Staging Fashionista to stage my home prior to placing it on the market to sell. They used a combination of my furniture and theirs, as well as some of my decorations and theirs to stage my house. Wow!! I was shocked at the results. Absolutely beautiful. My house now looks like a model home. Mannie and her staff are incredible. Their work is fabulous!! I can’t wait to use them to help decorate my new home.

I can’t recommend Mannie of The Staging Fashionista enough! She’s a true professional and a master at her craft. From the initial phone call to the staging day, I was provided professional, courteous and excellent services, resulting in a beautifully staged home in Oakton, VA. Our home had been on the market for two months in the fall, with no offers or inclinations of offers. At our first consult, Mannie was able to give me a few ideas that I could easily adopt to modernized our home without a lot of cost or time. In a few weeks, our home was transformed and I am thrilled with the end product. I am confident that the house will sell it is so appealing, warm, and inviting gosh, I don’t want to leave! Every detail of staging came together in a beautiful product. I am always available to speak by phone or e-mail, and can be reached at [email protected]. Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback about Mannie’s services.

I just want to thank you for helping us get our house sold. You did the Walk and Talk consultation on a Wednesday night, my husband did the work on Thursday, we had a walk through on Friday and a contract on Saturday. Thank you so much for your wonderful insights and advice. Our house had been on the market for over 20 days with tons of showings but no offers. Thank you so much for your help. I am planning on using your expertise when decorating my new home.

I engaged Mannie Tantawy to stage my town house in Ashburn. The home was renovated but being empty even though I was getting people in to view the house, I was not getting any offers. Mannie came to the house and staged it, after staging the people who came through loved the home and it was not long before I had an acceptable offer in and now I am in the final stages of getting the home sold. I have not used a staging company before and had mixed results selling my homes in the past. I can honestly say that her touches to the home made me think about not selling, the place as it looked fantastic. I would definitely not hesitate to use her services again and would be happy to fully reccommend her services to family and friends when selling their homes. Thanks again for your five star service.
When our agent went thru the house from top to bottom he said it was a realtor’s dream and could not give us one single suggestion of anything to improve on the inside. He also suggested raising the listing price by $10K. WOW. Thank you so much for all of you help and wonderful suggestions. We had an open house this weekend and have several good prospects including one couple who came back twice and spent quite a bit of time looking around both times. All of the feedback we received from the Open House was fantastic. I hope we will be able to give you a good report for the days on market as soon as it it sold and we have already recommended you to several friends as well as our realtor.

Manuela’s expert advice made a significant positive difference in the presentation of our home for sale. Her recommendations about placement of furniture made the rooms so much more inviting and welcoming. We also took Manuela’s advice about placement of artwork and accessories, which accented the best features of our home to potential buyers. Manuela’s enthusiasm and expertise were worth every penny! Using her advice was a very wise decision; I only regret that we did not seek Manuela’s advice sooner.

I’m sooooo pleased with the work you did on my house. Working with you has always been so effortless. Your energy, creativity and most importantly, your eye for design has transformed bland rooms into rooms people just want to move into! I was particularly impressed with how you were able to “re-invent” the uses of the pieces I already had! At some point we thought about using your do it yourself option, but after seeing the result I can definitely say hiring you to stage my house was the smartest investment. You guided me while providing accurate quotes, on-site consultation/supervision and an overall comprehensive approach. And not to forget about making it kid-friendly as well. I’ll certainly be happy to recommend you in the future, I am so happy with the work you did. THANK YOU!!!!!

Completing the job professionally, with “eloquence” and priced well is a summary of the work that Mannie does for her clients. I was impressed by her sense of confidence right from the start. I was amazed by her quick understanding of my property space needs and how simply perfect she combined decor with colors, style and common sense furnishings. Could not believe she will accomplish all this with the most competitive quote I received.

I am Josh Choe with RE/MAX CitySide in Annandale. I have been working with Mannie, and my sellers love the way she works. I think she really knows how to accentuate the positive features of the home she works on. A nice looking home just looks fabulous after Mannie has worked on it for half a day or more. Very recently, 2 of my listed homes received multiple offers in less than a week after being on the market, and I know that Mannie’s work had a lot to do with this fact! Mannie not only has great skills has a stager, but I respect her integrity and honesty in dealing with my sellers. She is also very quick to respond to my calls and emails, and I love that as well! She is a great addition to my team!

I showed Mannie a vacant, listing that had been on the market for over 90 days and was stale. In less than one week, she viewed the home, made specific recommendations and fully staged the home beautifully. On a VERY short timeframe, she took a “tired” house and turned it into an “awesome” home. Mannie made key recommendations for the inside of the home and the outside too. Her recommendations for the outside of the home were the same I had made to the owner previously, but having a fresh perspective on the home, made a difference. Mannie’s recommendations for the inside of the home were perfect. She had a vision and suggested furniture that said what she described. Mannie’s prices were more than fair and she delivered on everything she said she would. The quality and the amount of the furniture provided for the staging was perfect. The people that have seen the home since it has been staged specifically commented on how wonderful it looked. Up until that point, I had not received very many positive comments about the home. I am very appreciative of Mannie’s work and would strongly recommend her to an associate.

Mannie did a wonderful job staging a virtually vacant property even in the midst of last minute contract work being done. She made the place pop and definitely helped in it getting an offer.
Sheila Carney, Avery Hess Realtors
I have listed a nice vacant town house in Leesburg. The house is newly remodeled but nothing would distinguish it from the hundreds of other town houses on the market. Mannie did a dramatic vignette staging and transformed this vacant house into a warm and inviting home that stands out in today’s competitive market. I am a big believer of home staging and have worked with different staging companies, Mannie is simply the best! I will definitely be recommending her services.
Danica Hu, Weichert Realtors
I didn’t even know where to start but it was that awesome plan that you put together for me that made it happen. You have such a great eye and you made great practical suggestions for me. You definitely made me feel comfortable and empowered. This whole thing could have been so intimidating (particularly since I had a limited budget), but you made me feel like I was capable of doing it within my budget. You helped me prioritize. Seriously, I was so overwhelmed before you stepped in! I truly couldn’t be happier with the results. I want future clients to know just how good you are. People need to hire you!

Mannie is a true professional and she exceeded all of our expectations. My wife and I were new to the concept of staging and came across the Staging Fashionista online. From the minute Mannie walked into our home, she played the part of an expert that we had occasionally seen on TV (on one of those reality shows). Our townhouse in Arlington, Virginia was on the market for over 90 days before we contacted Mannie. We certainly wish we contacted her earlier. Because we were living in our house during the listing, we wanted to ensure we could still live and function in our house without changing our lives too dramatically. Mannie was able to provide thoughtful and creative advice, utilizing the furniture, accents, and artwork in our home while creating minimal disruption. She’s a natural and could be used in any staging need (no matter how large or small).
Bennett & Britton Miller, Arlington, Virginia
Mannie prepared a comprehensive consultation report for me that was just what I needed to do the redeisgn on my own time. The report had step by step guidance on how to redesign each room, floor plans for furniture arrangement and recommendations for upgrades and where to buy them. This was exactly what I needed to do the job on my own !

Thanks for all your beautiful touches and hard work and your great ideas. You do excellent work and it was a pleasure working with you.
Sadaf Alhooie, Keller Williams Realty, Ashburn, VA
Mannie does excellent work. When she first sent me the list of items that needed to be done I was a bit overwhelmed but at the end the staging process was worth it. Mannie is very friendly and guides you through the process and her staging gets two thumbs up from me. After her staging my home looked completely different but very nice.
Connie Cheng, Ashburn, VA
