“Bevin, I would like to thank you again for the beautiful staging job that you all did at Sandy Point. I am confident that the staging made a difference in us getting a contract. We are very grateful for all that you did to make this happen. I most highly recommend you. Your customer service, process, pricing- all exceptional!!”

“My sellers purchased a house on Daniel Island in February of 2013 because of job relocation.  When they received the news (the day after they purchased the home) that they were no longer transferring, they had to turn around and sell the same vacant house.  Bevin Googer was great with the sellers and found a staging structure that would suit their needs.  She took care of everything.  Not only did we ratify a contract within the first week, but we sold it for $23,000 more than the sellers paid for it two months ago!  There is no question in my mind whether the staging helped or not.  In my opinion- the staging is the reason why we were able to sell the same house, with no improvements, for $23,000 more!”

“This is a team of true professionals that are focused on customer satisfaction and exceeding your expectations with delivery of services. With little notice and under pressure to stage three listings, they worked 24/7 to meet the deadlines. Staging with First Impressions is a savvy investment tool for realtors and sellers in this market. Presentation in marketing of your product and in showings to potential buyers is EVERYTHING. ‘You only get once chance to make a good impression, so leave a mark and not a stain’.”

“We listed a condo built in 1983 and needed it changed from an older, tired unit to one that says buy me now. Melissa came and worked wonders. The very first showing resulted in the unit going under contract at a price 6% higher than the previous units sold for. First Impressions makes the difference in this challenging real estate market.”

“If is wasn’t for you and your company we would not have sold our home.  It was on the market for 10 months before we decided we needed to try something different.  The professionalism we received from your company was extraordinary.  Within 80 days of our home being staged by your company it was sold. Thank you.”


“Bevin Googer and her team are Awesome. They came in and put together a strategy and a plan for your On site models that was fantastic and will work for us as a New Homes Sales Team now and in the future. In this market in Charleston we need every edge we can get and Bevin and First Impressions are one of those companies that deliver quick and easy solutions to presentations in New Home Sales. She came in and got multiple options for us to get the job done quick and economical. She was able to work with what we had and made improvements and we have seen sales rise in just 3 weeks of her finishing just one model that she has worked on. We will use her and her company on many more communities and projects going forward.”


“Thanks to Bevin and her awesome staging and design ideas for helping us in this slower market.  After having numerous showings on two higher priced homes and no offers, we decided to try Bevin’s staging.  Right after the staging, both properties went under contract and sold.  Then, I sold my personal residence for market price with only 31 days on market after having Bevin consult me on the paint colors, furniture placement and de-cluttering.  Bevin’s staging and redesign services are awesome and are highly recommended!  Thanks again Bevin!”


“I am thrilled with the service and vision of Bevin and her team at First Impressions. The furniture and accessories, beautifully placed, define the spaces and allow the Buyers to visualize themselves in their future home. The before and after photos and video are great marketing tools and the feedback, post-staging, has been extremely positive. Thanks for all your help!”

“I have worked with First Impressions to stage two million dollar homes – one on Sullivan’s Island and most recently one in Molasses Creek. Their work has brought each house to life, enabling buyers to see all the potential the rooms and setting have. In both cases we received contracts soon after staging. It’s no wonder that I have just had them stage my listing downtown on Charlotte St. Let’s hope that the third time is a charm too!”
