Should I decorate my listing for the holidays?

We love getting into the spirit of the holidays! However, too many seasonal decorations take the focus off all your home has to offer. This year, go light on the inflatable lawn decorations and 48-piece train set that winds around the foyer. Instead, a few well chosen seasonal accents can make your home feel fresh and current. Here are four staging tips that will help you make the most of selling your home during the holiday season.

Barbara handled the selling of our bed and breakfast business and the purchase of our next home a the same time. She handled both transactions with integrity and professionalism. Throughout the process of both she was knowledgeable, available and courteous. The sale of the B&bwas especially difficult and protracted and she remained patient and gave us a tremendous amount of support and clarity. We have already recommended her to another B&B.

Last Thanksgiving, my husband and I stayed in a local B&B. During our stay we mentioned that we would be looking for a home here in Asheville. Our hosts highly recommended Barbara Newell. She had found them the B&B, and their Asheville home. We took their advice and are glad we did. I called Barbara, on our last day here at Thanksgiving to see if she could show us a home that we found on the internet. She was out of town, but when she returned, she went to that house, to check it out for us. Over the next few months we emailed back and forth with other listings. She was able to get a clear idea of what we wanted and needed. When I was finally able to get away and come to Asheville, she helped me find our perfect home in only two days. I believe this was possible because of Barbara's extensive knowledge of the area. I would highly recommend Barbara Newell, for an enjoyable and productive house hunt.

No improvement needed. Barbara Newell did an outstanding job finding us the right property, negotiating the deal and closing. We had worked with Barbara about 4 years ago, but decided at that time to not move to the Asheville area. She did such a great job for us then that she was the first person we thought about when selecting a Realtor to help us find a home in Hendersonville. She was extremely patient with us. She showed us several homes and helped us evaluate each one based on the objectives we had given her when we started looking. The home we bought was actually taken off the market after we saw it the first time and after we had looked at several other homes. She was able to work with the sellers' Realtor to get us another showing and we decided at that time that it was the home for us and submitted an offer. She handled the negotiations very well and we ended up with a price that we felt was very reasonable. We wish to thank her for all she did for us.

To whom it may concern: Barbara Newell is a great realtor. We do not live in North Carolina and could not have purchased this home without her help. She was key in negotiating and assisted us with obtaining excellent service providers as needed. She is the most knowledgeable, professional, and patient realtor we have ever met. She guided us through the whole process and she won our trust. We would gladly recommend her services. It was truly a pleasure to work with her. She is great and we love her.
