Staging: Suddenly widowed, I decided to move from our home in Warwick of over 40 years to an urban apartment in Providence. My realtor introduced me to Jeff Lima, a professional who stages homes in preparation for sales. Within one hour, Jeff surveyed my home, made suggestions while I took notes. He recommended fresh paint, new kitchen hardware, making everything sparkle, rearranged furniture, and accessorized all areas. Jeff knew I was on a budget, so made his recommendations affordable. Bottom line, my home became a realtor’s showcase and it sold in just three weeks!
