we wow with a great team
wowed! is one of the largest and most established home staging companies in the region. Over the years, we have been working with home owners, realtors and investors to stage thousands of properties of all sizes, styles and prices in Washington DC, Suburban MD (including Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Rockville, Potomac and Kensington) and Northern VA.
Our mission is three-fold:
Minimize the dollars invested in preparing the home for sale.
Sell the home in the shortest period of time possible.
Maximize the sales price of the home.
Our wowed! team includes five professional stagers and two moving crews. We operate out of a 7000 square foot warehouse stocked with an extensive array of furniture and home decor. Our inventory is frequently updated with new and on-trend pieces in a variety of styles and colors.
wowed! is proud to be the 2022 and 2020 Readers’ Pick for BEST OF BETHESDA (Home Staging Firm) from readers of Bethesda Magazine and a BEST OF HOUZZ annual winner since 2015. Our work has been featured in both Bethesda Magazine and on Maryland Public Television.

the wowed! difference
100% IN-HOUSE OPERATIONS
We are a full-service home staging company. We own all of our furniture and home décor to make your listing shine. Our stagers are our employees, plus we have an experienced moving crew with two trucks on staff. By not outsourcing our furniture or labor, we maintain total control over the quality of our stagings and can provide exceptional client service for every job.
Each staging project requires hours of planning and hundreds of moving parts. We have developed time-tested processes to ensure everything runs smoothly from start to finish. Using our depth of experience and expertise, we are able to complete jobs quickly, on time and on budget.
We know how to get our clients the most value for their investment by showcasing a home's unique features without breaking the bank. This includes offering 30-day-minimum contracts so clients don’t have to pay more than what they need.
FULL-TIME STAGING FOCUS
We stage up to 15 homes per week which means we understand the psychology of buyers, we know design and decor trends, and we are attuned to the ever-changing real estate market. We are not a furniture rental company nor do we get involved with designing homes or selling them. Our team is 100% laser focused on staging homes each and every day.
WE GET RESULTS
The vast majority of our clients are under contract before the end of the first month. Many homeowners receive multiple offers above their asking price.
