TRH works with you and your chosen contractors to ensure smooth interface, adherence to budget, met deadlines and great results. Residential or commercial we

TRH can be as involved as you’d want. You define the project, pricing based on time spent to complete a job as requested.
Especially useful for large or extended projects; and investors, landlords, executors, and busy or offsite property owners who need organization and onsite management. Here are some of our more recent projects.
Free home-finder apps and smart phones will put your listing in front of the world moments after it goes live. That’s the good news
The bad news? You’ve only got their attention for moments. Photos need to be crisp and easily readable on a 3″ phone screen. If not then it’s SWIPE! on to the next listing. Sorry…but if you’ve been looking at other listings for yourself you know its true.
Photo prep and photo styling are variations on a theme.
Photo prep is usually day before or day of photos. Often with agent and homeowner, in a few hours we go through the property together, clearing what we need to, re-positioning, tweaking and polishing along the way. Making the details pop: pillows are fluffed, blinds are even, seats are down, light bulbs all work.
Photo styling does this, and more. Every property is different, but styling often involves some preliminary work like planting flowers, painting or changing out lighting fixtures, and procuring props to fill in and compliment the space.
Having time to plan also lets TRH line up memorable photos that capture the spirit of the property and touch the heart of the viewers…often using much of what the homeowner already has.
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!

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!

Ossining, now Greenwich
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 deals directly with decision makers, discussing general costs and budget during the initial consult, and refining it as we move forward.
When accurate, 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.
