        “Our house sat on the market for an entire year with very few showings. Courtney identified the problem after a ten minute walk through. She said that the house was too formal for people to imagine themselves in with their kids!! With a few modifications to each room, Courtney turned our house into an environment that any family would want to “play” in! The showings became non-stop and we had a contract on our house just a few weeks later. Not only were we able to sell our house effortlessly, but I feel as though I made a new friend, as well. Courtney is wonderful!‎”  ~ L. Hammel, Homeowner
       “Courtney from Austin Simple Staging came in after a another decorator had steered us the wrong direction. She took that persons bad advice and redefined it to make our Circle C Ranch home stunning. It helped us close the house in 14 days. Courtney was able to take our furniture and decorations and completely redefine the flow of our home. Then she recommended some great paint colors on a couple walls for icing on the cake. I would recommend her services to anybody looking to spruce up or sell their home.”  ~ David C., Homeowner
      “I have followed your ideas and decorated my art niche….and I LOVE it!  I have been staring at that niche for 5 years and could not figure out how to use it.  And now it is beautiful…and we are trying to sell!   Figures!  Everything else is starting to come together and is looking so beautiful.  Thanks to YOU.”  ~ Julie F., Homeowner
       “Thank you so much for your fabulous help yesterday in helping us get our house in tip-top selling condition. Your ideas and suggestions were great and we’ve already got a HUGE start on implementing them. The areas we worked in last night look SO much better!
If I’d known a new ceiling fan would have made such a difference, I would have changed it out long ago!  Thank you Courtney!”  ~ Lori C., Homeowner
“I have sold three houses in Austin over the past 15 years.  I can truly say that David Brodsky Properties is the best team of realtors I have ever worked with.  Firm principals David Brodsky and Courtney Unangst are outstanding.I made the decision in August, 2009 to sell an estate property that was appraised at $1.5 million before the significant decline in the real estate market.  With more than 1,000 homes that were valued at $1 million or more on the market in the midst of one of the most severe real estate downturns in this nation’s history, David Brodsky Properties assisted me in selling my home at 90% of the appraised value from when the real estate market and the economy were booming.The process began with Courtney staging my house to highlight its beauty and unique features.  That was followed by nationwide marketing of my property in a professional and effective manner.  David Brodsky did a great job in screening persons who expressed an interest in the property and was able to accurately tell me who was serious and who was not.

I was concerned that the best offer that I would get for my home would be around 75% of its appraised value (during the boom time).  I am convinced that the professionalism of David Brodsky Properties made all the difference in me selling my home.

These results convinced me that David Brodsky and Courtney Unangst are the best!”

“We were in a tricky situation where we needed to sell two houses, in two different neighborhoods and then buy a new house in a specific area within a specific period of time.  David and Courtney were able to put a plan together, price each house appropriately, give us cost efficient recommendations on staging and sell both houses within the timeframe we hoped for.  Then, we were able to find a new house that fit all of our needs within our budget.  David’s “personal CFO” approach helps give perspective to both the short term and long term considerations when buying a house, and his straightforward and realistic approach to selling a house allows for a pricing strategy that will move the house quickly while getting the profit you desire.  We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”~ Mindi & Jeff O., Homeowner
“Austin Simple Staging has brought new life to my “bachelor pad” house now for sale in Travis Heights!  Many thanks to Courtney/Austin Simple Staging on her recommendations, staging, furniture selections, and house items to maximize the showing of my home.  Courtney’s keen sense of décor and presentation skills has made my house look like a “new” home/model home and sure will enhance the sale value $$ of my house.  Highly recommend Austin Simple Staging if you want to maximize the value of your home when trying to sell in this competitive buyers market!”  ~Bruce H., Homeowner
“Thank you….thank you! You made my condo ready to be put on the market. It looks picture perfect. The first showing wants to put down an offer! Comments on our place have been “shows fabulously!” You have great ideas that don’t cost a fortune. Thank you again for all of your work and great decorating eye.”~ H. Brown, homeowner
“It was such a pleasure meeting you and seeing you at work! I really appreciated your honesty, taking into account expenses and prioritizing what pieces of the staging would be essential.” ~ Linda, Homeowner
    “I had the pleasure of working with Courtney Unangst owner of Austin Simple Staging to prepare my home for sale. What a talented gal she is! She came into my home with such creative ideas! I had a specific room that was causing buyers to struggle. I hired Courtney to come in for a two hour consultation and we went to work and made the most out of the room. The best part was we used what I had! She is a blast to work with and my home was under contract within 16 days! I would highly recommend using Courtney & Austin Simple Staging!‎”  ~ D.Wallace, Homeowner
 “Courtney came into my outdated house with enthusiasm and a positive attitude! She turned my house into a user friendly home while making it look and feel like a model home. Her flare for decorating is apparent in her finished product. Courtney is a delight to work with – always professional and productive while having fun.”  ~ J. Widetich, Homeowner
