Mikaela was prompt in her arrival and explained the process up front(which made it super easy), and we were off and running. I appreciated her careful li... See More

Staging a home for sale allows the property to show better by causing professional photos to look more attractive on different web site portals. But...helping a buyer do furniture layout in their new home is priceless! Mikaela's ideas are not only pretty but functional. Her quick response to questions is especially helpful when working with a contractor to get home improvement projects started and ready for completion in an organized time frame.
I loved Mikaela with Imagine Gurus because she was most interested in what my needs and wishes were. She is an excellent listener and her advice made complete sense. She didn’t try to change our style, she simply enhanced it. I hope to work with her again and again in the future.
