            Deb Goode is a great home stager that has an eye to make homes beautiful. I am a vendor of Deb and she invited me to help her stage a home a few months back, so that I could learn the industry a little better. What a great experience and I really appreciate her opening up her business to me and educating Project Map It about the ins and outs of home staging. I can honestly say I met a life long friend in Deb and I couldn't be happier. So if you are an agent in Anne Arundel County looking to team up with a reputable home stager, I highly recommend Deb. She will not disappoint you. With Deb, you get a kind, reliable and great collaborator, everything a realtor is looking for. Thanks Deb for all you have done for me and Project Map It!

            Deb is for real. She is an excellent decorator and at the same time knows how to help enhance the character of the house. Her staging matches the target audience of buyers for each individual house. And she sure has made my job easier, to sell the house and to do it fast. The last one sold in 5 days.

            Many times our listings aren't quite ready for the market until Deb puts her touch on it. We find her valuable to stage our vacant homes as she brings them to life! We appreciate and value our relationship with Deb, it has been going on for over 4 years. We cannot recommend her enough to our clients as she treats them as one of her own.
