Compelling listing photos engage viewers and drive traffic to a property. Free home-finder apps and the skyrocketing use of mobile devices increase online viewings exponentially-that’s the good news.
The bad news? Viewers will leave just as quickly if they are not immediately impressed or at least engaged. Your photos have mere seconds to make an impression: If they don’t catch the buyers eyes, it’s SWIPE!, into oblivion, and on to the next listing.
YES, TRH always starts with what a seller has, as long as it supports their goals and price point. Pre-shoot consults craft a strategy that could include:
- Reworking/repositioning possessions
- Buying or providing agreed-upon props
- Assisting in the borrowing, buying or renting of furniture
- Day-of-shoot support It allows for most number of best shots; helpful if things need to be ‘shared’ between rooms
Styling a house for marketing and photography is a lot like fine cooking. Part of the process is art, and part is science. Marie has an eye for the details that have the greatest impact in photos, so walking into a house that she has prepared is like sitting down to eat at your favorite restaurant. You may not know what you are going to get, but you can be sure it will be wonderful. It’s always a pleasure to shoot for Marie’s clients!

Online or on-site TRH will guide you through research and selection; and can recommend sources, or procure goods on your behalf.
A registered trade professional in many local establishments, any available trade discounts are passed directly to the client.
Marie helped us choose the necessary pieces and recommended excellent service providers to get the work done. She did all of this without ever losing sight of our budget and time constraints. Marie’s taste is impeccable, and her work has transformed our home into exactly what we always wanted it to be. She did all of this with efficiency, grace, and always with a smile!

Is your new space a different size or style? Have your tastes or needs changed? TRH will target the goods and services you need to consider, and then seamlessly and comfortably get you out of one space and settled into another.
- Pre-move: We assess what you own, and how you feel about it. Help prioritize editing, decide what will move with you, and then plan where it’ll go.
- As another set of eyes on moving day, TRH makes sure things are packed and marked properly, then unpacked and placed in the right locations in your new space.
- We can complete the picture by placing your art and accessories in your new space, creating a shopping list for any needed fill-ins, and address other important finishing tasks.
Marie got us to focus on selling our home by seeing it as a house for prospective buyers to consider. We followed her instructions pretty well and had two offers at ask first weekend we were on the market. IN FEBRUARY! Marie’s advice helped us put our efforts only in areas that’d be important to the buyers.
She is a professional who knows her business and is a gem to work with, a total win – win! And now she’s on standby as we are considering a property in Greenwich which would be a renovation project. Kitchens, baths – the works! I will need her!

Furnished, but too dark? Flat or underwhelming spaces? Vacant spaces with vanilla kitchens and stark baths?
TRH maintains a warehouse full of the basic, and the cool: carefully curated props available for monthly rental to add light and life and warmth to photos, engaging and drawing buyers through the whole house.
TRH typically deals directly with decision makers, discussing general costs and budget during the initial consult, and refining it as we move forward.
When accurate and all-in numbers, rationale and options need to be considered long-distance, or by a number of parties written formal proposals are the answer.
Equal parts market expertise, design, research and math, TRH will craft and deliver as specific – or as succinct – a written proposal as requested. Perfect for boards, absentee owners, grown/distant adult children, attorneys, and heirs. Pricing commensurate with the property and client requirements.
Need to show purpose and value in a vacant space? Have rooms that don’t reflect their intended purpose, like bedrooms that must continue to function as home offices? These plans are the affordable, viewer-friendly answer.
NOT virtual staging, and NOT overall measurements of an empty space: they are individual room plans, drawn and furnished to scale. And, when completed with property and agent contact info, they are framed, printed or in PDF format for distribution. Pricing commensurate with your space and need.
