About Us-Client Testimonials

Staging and redesigning homes has been a lifelong passion of mine,  somewhat of a "home junkie", if you will.  I love creating warm and inviting spaces with unique touches that reflect the home owner's personality. After spending over two decades in retail merchandising and display, and a successful teaching career,

I have decided to follow my passion for home design.

SHV has recently started a new company that buys and renovates properties. This new company, Black Moon Property Group,  offers cash for properties with no  commissions, hassles or inspections.  The best part is very quick closings so homeowners can take advantage of this hot real estate market!


Staging Hudson Valley was created to assist homeowners with the sale of their home and market it for maximal appeal to buyers.  A home that is professionally staged typically sells  for an average of

5-10% more than an un-staged home, and stays on the market for about half the time, making a staged home much more competitive in today's real estate market. 

What I offer, is a variety of non-structural changes, using many of your own furnishings,  that will dramatically raise the aesthetic appeal of your home.

 "Laura did several staging projects for me. She is reliable, organized, energetic and has a natural sense of space and design.  Laura has the unique ability to understand the client's vision and will work within their budget." Terri Finnegan


 "Laura from SHV helped me chose a color scheme and furnishings for my Living Room, as well as cabinets and countertops for my Kitchen. She has a great eye for color, and was amazing at putting together a look, that I was skeptical about, but was perfect for my space! I couldn't be happier !!" Lily Murray

Laura helped us stage our second home & she did a fabulous job. From furniture selection to finding a great contractor to making low cost / high payback suggestions - she did everything we had hoped & more. Not only that, she coordinated basically everything for us, since we were almost 2 hours away and it was really difficult for us to be at the house at every point someone was needed. Trustworthy, dependent, and a wonderful eye for home design is how I would summarize Laura and her team. Thank you!  Sean C.
