The Refreshed Home is a service and information-based firm that supports sellers, buyers, and agents alike. It’s where experience matters, and kindness counts. We are direction and equilibrium for sellers, ideas and vision for buyers, confidence and skill building for some agents, found time for others.
Our approach is always carefully calibrated to you and your client: their needs, your business, and the relationship you share. Confident and respectful; never aggressive or militant, we work with committed sellers and their agents to get the job done.
No matter your level of experience, I always welcome the opportunity to meet with, and do a trial run with agents who are interested, curious and open to opportunity and innovation. If you like what some of your colleagues have to say, call me today and we’ll talk!
Marie Graham brings considerable personal and professional skills to the art of staging. Her approach is non-threatening and reassuring. She patiently and clearly explains that staging is different from decorating; it’s about creating a canvas upon which buyers can project their own dreams and point of view. Once this is understood, sellers overcome emotional blocks, and transition from being homeowners, to being in the business of selling a house.

Marie is a true professional: creative, discreet, and flexible. She keeps communications open with me, works well
with all my sellers no matter what their circumstances are, and makes common-sense and value-oriented changes that really make a difference! Our most recent project was on the market for 65 days, and closed 34 days later.

Marie is one of the few professionals in the industry that grasps that we are there for the client, not simply the property. The sale and marketing of a home is rife with stress. The staging of a home is intensely personal, and by nature, invasive. Marie has positioned herself perfectly with my clients, easing their stress and helping them focus on outcome rather than process alone.
The results have been stellar to be sure, but the road getting there has also been far easier with her professional collaboration. In real estate, that is priceless.
Marie has raised the bar. We could not be happier. Please do not hesitate to contact me about specifics.

I had a listing that was neat, but dated. It had been on for almost a year, with little traffic and no offers. Marie came in a made changes that really made the place pop but were not that costly. Best of all, we got a full-price offer the first day it was back on the market, and closed 7 weeks later. Marie was not only easy to work with but right on the money with her suggestions, working within your budget to get the best result-great job!!

Marie Graham is a breath of fresh air. She has the enviable ability to assess a home and come up with spot-on, easily doable suggestions that transform a space without breaking the bank.
Our most recent project together was an eight room home; it sold shortly after Marie did her assessment, quickly came up with a plan and together we implemented it.

Marie truly has proven herself as a strategic partner to my business. She takes the pressure and stress away and contributes to a smooth transaction. When working with Marie you can be confident that she will truly work with you and the client adapting to the needs of the project. She assesses the needs of each listing thoroughly and presents high impact results at a low cost.
In my business I need people I can trust and who can really get the job done. Marie far exceeds that! On one listing that Marie worked on, I received an offer within FOUR days! Even better, my seller was able to use items they owned

Not only does Marie know what needs to be done to enhance the home’s appeal, but she builds instant rapport with my clients with her warm and vibrant personality. Bottom line: Marie has helped buyers fall in love with my sellers’ homes, get them sold faster!
