Welcome to our newest Community Partner - Anna Topolinsky of Images Staged with Flair.

Stage your home! Sell your home! is our tag line. At Images Staged with Flair we have proven that staging works! Take a look at our portfolio and view the homes that have sold faster and many times for more money! This is our gallery of homes that we have staged for our very happy clients. Many of these homes were on the market listed for months without any offers and once staged they received offers and sold. Some homes were vacant homes where we created a design plan and staged fully furnished rooms, and some rooms were owner occupied homes, we staged with the clients furnishings, we only added art work, lighting and accessories.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Marilyn in the development of "Beyond the Bed: A Quilt Retrospective" which is a cataloge booklet of her excellent Art Quilts.

She was always kind, gracious and considerate. Have a look at some images of her amazing creations.

At Miller Restoration we understand how destructive fire can be to a home or business. Fire and Smoke Damage can be physically and emotionally devastating. Fire damage can cause extensive damage to a home or building and may require a great deal of time to clean and repair. On top of the flames, heat and smoke will contribute to invading anything that is porous. Fire will produce poisonous gasses that can make an individual either drowsy or disoriented. The initial fire can be followed by more damage due to the water and chemicals used to put out the fire.
