Rachel of CM Staging provided sub par furniture at a premium price. She was extremely disorganized and insisted on complete control of my contractors to assist her company. On the day of staging, despite my asking to keep two double wide front and back doors closed as much as possible, she left doors wide open all day on the hottest day of the year and overworked two air conditioners, which was my concern. I asked her more than three times to close the doors (I lived across the street and visited her progress) They both broke down the next day and she claimed no responsibility with the scheduled open house eminent. She refused to acknowledge or speak about it which I found completely unbusiness like and totally defensive. During the process, was in dispute with artists as well and everyone she came into contact with. Very argumentative. My house looked better with my things than with hers. In fact the house sold with no furniture in the end, that is how uninspiring her creativity was. I removed her pictures off the website actually. She was not my choice as the recommended stager was booked. I highly recommend to stay away from her and I seriously believe as do others that she is quite unstable. I attempted a hold back of last months rent in order to have a discussion about the 5k cost in overstressing the airconditioners to keep up with 95 degree blistering heat moving straight through the house all day long concluding with the open house conducted in 85 degrees due to her negligence. I finally ended the relationship when she was not cooperative whatsoever in discussing the airconditioner matter and the house was not selling with her work presented. When retrieving her inventory she packed the items up so quickly she didnot allow me to inspect the contents she took out of the house as much of the furniture was mine as well. This allowed her to conceal the perfectly good outdoor furniture, stow it away and then later claim I damaged it. She charged me 818.00 for unused outdoor furniture because they got rained on in order to gouge and make up money she felt cheated on from a negotiation I made on reversing the order of the monthly fee during slow summer season. She took me to court for the holdback (2,300) and piled on huge costs to make it look like she lost money (she wanted 8,000 now). I tried to change date of hearing but couldnt and she was awarded in my absence. The outdoor furniture was also in her claim and she has proudly displayed the same furniture on her site subsequently in the for sale category with other less trendy items. She received insurance from her claim, my court claim and resold it all as well as new- highly deceptive and debilitating business practice. Her work is not worth the cost by far, she is unprofessional, mean spirited and devisive trying to character assassinate to deflect from her bad job and poor results. Since then, she continues to upload her website with my pictures of my furniture for her presentation of how she styles in the after shot for which she had nothing to do with the placement, scale scope etc and she makes you believe she is an authorized agent of a previous HGTV show-her work is not highlighted nor credited as such and stylists will be involved other than CM staging. The Art shown on her site highlighting completed projects is NOT hers, as was the case on my project (and other projects the works of art are not from her inventory) The art for my project was tastefully placed and chosen by the artist and myself and my agent- she fought us (see above on very argumentative) on every single piece and now advertises this on her website to take credit for it. Overall the tastes of CM Staging (Rachel the owner) extend little beyond basic accent pillows with straightlined furniture and all "beauty" shots on the resulting advertising of my property featured my pieces as opposed to hers thereby giving very little value for the money spent with her and her inventory that she promotes. I was expecting from a stager the flair for what appeals in todays market with an ability to communicate. I did not receive that at all. I believe the scope of her staff (parent) speak speaks to minimized ability to create and co-operate with fellow creative types thereby jeopardizing the outcome of a successful project as it did on mine. The links to HGTV shows do not credit her- stylists from the show would have a say in the presentation so she is not doing it herself, yet she charges as such- This is misleading advertising- false advertising and I was misled. My home sold without furniture and CM staging provides no evidence or results oriented information. Overall- there is false advertising as links to HGTV does not indicate what she herself was resonsible for, she leads chaotically and the overcontrolling nature of this style of working led to a very difficult process from start to finish and I would not recommend this staging company at all.
