BREAKING NEWS! Janne Anderson Burgio, CEO of The House Whisperers has just been nominated as one the Most Influential People in Real Estate Staging! She also won 2017 Top 10 Professional Home Stager of the Year Award at the National Home Staging & Redesign Association Summit. The House Whisperers won Best Staging Team in HSRA's 2017 Pacific Regional Staging Staging Awards, and 1st Place Master Bedroom in Aspired Home Real Estate Magazine. Other awards include 2016 Vacant Stage of the Year and 2015 Top 5 Professional Home Stager of the Year.
The House Whisperers was founded by Interior Designer and Award-Winning Realtor Janne Anderson Burgio. Janne is a RESA-PRO™ home stager, not a staging hobbyist. A RESA-PRO™ home stager is a dedicated full-time home stager that is held to the highest standards of business, ethics and integrity. Janne was recently a featured expert speaker at the HSRA Home Staging Success Seminar. She's been a featured expert on ESPN Radio's Real Estate Show where she graciously shared her many insights and she's given her Secrets of A Stager presentation to thousands of real estate agents to help keep them abreast of the best standards and practices in the staging industry, so they can streamline commissions, and help their clients make the best possible decisions so they don't leave money on the table when selling.
During the Great Recession, Janne saw an opportunity to help sellers achieve quicker and more profitable sales by staging properties with distinct—but affordable—flair. Fast forward 13 years and The House Whisperers does more than 300 projects a year for some of Southern California’s most successful quick-turnaround investors, top-producing real estate agents, and homeowners. The House Whisperers reputation is that they make properties memorable. When a buyer sees a half-dozen or more properties in a day, it's important to make yours stand out. Seven-figure revenues and sales statistics that can't be beat—averaging between 5 and 20 days on market over the last year—make The House Whisperers a leader in the industry and one of the more prolific and successful home staging companies in the country.
Buzz built, word spread, and the company now also has a growing private interior design business and has had the pleasure of working with many delightful and inspiring clients including tech magnates, professional athletes, movie studio execs, and internationally-known celebrities.
Staging is now the standard for getting homes sold faster and for more money in today's busy real estate market. Sellers are often up against professional flippers and new construction, so it's imperative to do everything possible to make a house look magazine-worthy and provide that model home experience. In fact, the House Whisperers has helped corporate flipper clients achieve more than $100 million a year in home sales.
The latest Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) statistics show that staged homes sell 90% faster and for 10% more than their unstaged competition, so a growing number of agents and sellers wouldn't even think of putting a house on the market without getting it staged first. Investing in staging typically costs less than a month's holding costs.* But most compelling, the cost of staging is far less than the first price reduction!
* can include mortgage payment, HOA fees, utilities, taxes, maintenance, etc.
