I have heard myself insisting with clients that having Nob Hill Style stage their home is critical to the success of the marketing and the listing. Because of Lisa’s design sense and inventory and her genuine passion for what she does, I don’t believe there’s anyone else out there that will do almost any house the appropriate amount of justice it deserves. As a listing agent, when it comes to staging and positioning a property at the top of the market, our clients can’t afford to compromise on that point.

Lisa has an incredible eye and a keen sense of style that simply cannot be taught. With each of her staging projects she brings a fresh way of looking at space that helps it pop in photos. In this web driven world of real estate that is key. Understanding how a camera captures a room, the contrast needed and creativity and inventiveness she brings to each project is what she excels at. She is invested in her business and is constantly refreshing her inventory seasonally so each job looks and feels different.

Additionally Lisa is a keen business woman who understands that my relationship with my sellers is of utmost importance to me. I appreciate that she fully comprehends that. Lisa always helps me achieve maximum profit for the Sellers I recommend her to.

I am always so happy to get to the end of building a house so I can see what Lisa will do. It is such a joy to work with someone who appreciates my work and knows just how to make it look it’s best.
Lisa is the most creative professional person to work with and I so appreciate her knowledge of style. I’ve never been disappointed, only awed by her work. So glad to have her on my team!

As a real estate professional with 25+ year’s experience, working with Nob Hill Style has become an integral component of my listings. Lisa’s attention to detail and background in the film industry are the perfect combination for home staging. She can visualize a room photographed, and with buyers looking for homes on the internet, this insight is immeasurable. She is respectful with the seller and able to convey the value of staging. I know my clients are in good hands when working with Lisa. She is an essential part of my team!

I have worked with Lisa for a number of years and her work always amazes and delights me. She has staged everything from the moderately priced to the high- end luxury properties; from the most traditional to the latest in contemporary architectural styles.

She has consulted with Sellers who were planning to remain in their home while it was being marketed and counseled them on how to edit their own furnishings to show the property to its best advantage. She listens carefully to their information and explains about the concept she will be creating in their home and the difference between their lifestyle and the “fantasy” which potential Buyers will see when they view the property, which will make them want to move right in and live in those spaces. Most of the properties staged are vacant and, if vacant, Lisa is able to work more easily with her design and all of her inventory to create a more fully-developed concept without having to work around specific designs and furniture owned by the Sellers. Either way, once the home is on the market, potential Buyers and other individuals who tour her staged properties want to know who staged it, even if the property is not right for them.

Her extensive experience staging and set design in the film and television industries as well as in the world of video commercials and photo shoots guarantees that the property will show well in all the advertising materials including the printed and internet media. She will advise and/or consult on colors if a home has rooms which need to be re-painted. In the staging, she always adds something of a color which will “pop”, and she creates arrangements of furniture, art and accent pieces which will promote the property to its best advantage and make the rooms appear spacious and uncluttered.

Even in the fastest-moving and most frantic markets she has always kept her word on the agreed-upon scheduling and finishes on time to meet the Broker’s and Seller’s timetable—essential in this business!

The staging business is relatively new in the residential real estate industry and within the last decade has become an essential component of a successful marketing program. A property which is not staged is at a distinct disadvantage since its competition is most certainly going to be staged and the staged properties have been found to sell more quickly and for a higher price than those which are not staged.

Lisa keeps up with the newest trends, colors and decor by constantly studying the world of home decorating and by attending conferences and designer shows. She is able to remember every space she looks at for a future job and takes notes and photos to remind herself which pieces in her warehouse will be appropriate and what items she will need to add to her inventory for the specific project.

I feel very fortunate to have Lisa in my professional life and consider her an essential member of my team of experts in working with my Sellers. She is a jewel and I hesitate to share my remarks since I want her to be available to me whenever I call. But now my secret is out!!

Lisa Kohl is always a part of my listing team. Staging is an art and Lisa is a creative genius! She transforms. She doesn’t just junk up homes with low end filler furnishings that you see every where, instead she transforms houses into elegant thoughtful homes that buyers won’t want to leave.
— Patty Groesbeck | Windermere
In the 10+ years I’ve been an agent in Seattle, Nob Hill Style is by far the best stager I have worked with. Lisa and her team are very talented and have a gift for design. They customize the staging to the property to not just fill the space but transform the space into exactly what buyers are looking for. I get multiple calls from agents commenting on how fantastic the staging is for every listing they stage for me. I have no doubt that the return on investment is phenomenal and higher than if using other staging companies. On top of great results, they are extremely professional and easy to work with – I can count on them to get the job done when they say they will. I truly can’t say enough good things about Nob Hill Style.
— Heather Dolin | Windermere Real Estate
Five stars! We trust and highly recommend Lisa and Nob Hill Style. Lisa is that rare and wonderful combination of talented, professional and personable. Her high style staging as well as strategizing of low cost but high impact improvements was key to a successful and very profitable sale of our first home. We were so impressed with her that we asked her to help us style our 100 year old Capitol Hill home that we then bought. From accents to major projects, she has helped us make our house a home that we all enjoy. Working with Lisa and Nob Hill Style has taken the stress out of these projects and has been a truly positive experience for us.

I cannot recommend Nob Hill Style highly enough! Lisa was a delight to work with and her staging is beautiful and sublime. What I especially appreciated was the thoughtful consideration, time and energy Lisa put in to considering all aspects of our home before commencing on the project. Her team is attentive to every detail. Her understanding of architectural elements, use of color, and proportion enables her to create inviting, warm and refined spaces. She presents a look so fresh and elegant that the staging appears natural and sophisticated. Her use of textiles, gorgeous bedding, and her great sense of style create an exquisite environment. The outcome was in every way perfect. My clients loved it!

When it was time to sell our house, we called Lisa and Rick at Nob Hill Style to stage our house. In our area NE of Seattle, houses were sitting on the market for 30 to 60 days. Lisa came over and gave us suggestions on what to fix and upgrade, and once that was done, she staged the house so that it looked like it belonged on the Street of Dreams. We sold in 6 days at full price, unheard of at that time. That certainly wouldn’t have happened without the outstanding work by Lisa and Rick. We were almost sorry to move it was so beautiful!
— Paul & Ann Schille
Our realtor introduced us to Lisa to stage our house when we were putting it on the market. It was absolutely unbelievable how she transformed it into a totally different space than how we had lived in it. It was beautiful and our house sold in 8 days. I was so amazed by what Lisa accomplished I asked her to help us plan the interior of our new home. She has helped us transform it from a big empty space to one that feels warm, inviting and centered around family. Lisa is a joy to work with and we are so grateful to have met her.
