Covid19 did not stop my house from selling! 


Hot Pencil helped me stage my house and it sold for asking price in less than a week!  They told us how to rearrange our existing furniture, create focus on the best features of our home, prep for photography and helped us shop for updated art/accessories to make every space feel organized and fresh.  This was a great experience!
