Home Staging by Julie
Julie Millar : 978-249-8550
Julie helped me get my home ready for sale by walking through the house with me, recommending what furniture to remove to open up the rooms; what wall decor to move and/or remove; and what to keep or add to create a "magazine photo-spread" worthy house. We had a successful open house that resulted in a bid and sale! As a result, we not only got a good price, but by selling quickly, we saved two-month's mortgage payments! We couldn't have done it without Julie!

Julie Millar of Home Staging By Julie is absolutely one of the best home stagers I have had the privilege to work with! She has a fantastic creative eye and an understanding how to show a room in its best light. I have had the opportunity to work with Julie on many of my listings, and she always connects well with the client, walks them through the decluttering and staging elements in an easy to understand manner, with a great action plan following the consultation. I can truly recommend Julie to anyone in need of her services, highly and without reservation. I look forward to working with Julie of many years to come.

Julie is the consummate professional. She is very thorough with her consultations, walking every room of a house and making suggestions to our clients on what they need to do in order to sell their home to get the best possible price. My client's home sold at full asking price! I highly recommend her services.

Julie staged my house after I had moved away so I had to completely rely on her sense of style and color to showcase my house. My partner, who is a contractor and doesn't compliment lightly, said she has the best sense of color that he's ever seen. My house was staged perfectly and I'm convinced was the main reason my house sold when it did. She takes care of EVERYTHING and I can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks Julie!
Exit New Option Real Estate
I met Julie through the North Central MA Chamber. We were a good match to work together, and I am happy to say Julie worked perfectly on my latest listing. My client was a single man and he needed to get the best price in the shortest time. With Julies expert eye and advice he did almost everything she suggested and the house sold in 30 days-well below the market average of 128 days! She is not forceful or aggressive and works well with sellers and other Realtors. I would definitely recommend her and will continue to work with her in the future!

I met Julie at a business social event (she was with a friend who is a realtor that she does staging for) and we got to talking about what she does. When she told me about her other services around organization, room staging for functional living, decluttering and even hording, I made a note that I wanted to work with someone like that.
I have issues with Executive Functioning (a form of ADHD) that makes me very inefficient but at the same tim obsessed with saving everything. I keep papers "just in case" and have piles of knick knacks (with no function) from across the globe.
My father passed away in August and in the process of resettling my home (he had lived with my family for the past 6 years) that had become chaotic due to my father's care needs in the final months of life. I kept throwing anything and everything into his room to avoid facing the emotional and physical task of addressing the mess. (For the record, orderly housekeeping has never been a strong trait of mine!)
I contacted Julie and told her my situation. She assured me that she could help me and that I could get through this. I made 3 appointments with her, cancelling the first 2. I finally summoned the courage and we had our first session.
Julie is FANTASTIC. She showed up on my doorstep with no idea of what my situation looked like. She immediately made me feel so comfortable and able to let down my guard and embarrassment. I assumed we'd meet that day and then make a plan - but she was ready to roll up her sleeves and help me dig in.
In a 6 hour session Julie was able to help me go through everything; trash, Dad's things, items in non-sensical places. I thought I wouldn't be able to deal with things until my siblings could look at Dad's things too - but Julie helped me find a safe and out of the way place to store those items - everything else was given a bucket - keep, donate, & trash. Before the day was out my father's room was immaculate and my kitchen was spotless!
For the first time, EVER, Leo and I sit at our kitchen table for dinner - and are delighted to do so. The feeling of accomplishment is like nothing I've ever felt. Julie didn't just help me clean up - she talked me through how to maintain the order and not perceive a little upset as a total failure.
I am so looking forward to working with Julie again. I still have some spaces to clean up/clean out/organize and I am planning to work with Julie to evaluate how I can better "stage" my home so that they are pleasing to the eye, but also functional AND designed to make keeping things in their rightful place easy. Leo is looking forward to getting some space back too! Five stars, 5/5, Definitely recommend.
