Beside the dozens of success stories we hear from our agents, we tracked the traffic of our listings before virtual staging and after on our website,, for the first several months we used virtual staging. On average, there was a 30% increase in web traffic to the listing page as a result of having a virtually staged photo as the feature photo, versus a vacant photo. Another huge uptick was a reported percentage increase in open house traffic after the images were replaced.

Ilaria transformed a rather bland, empty apartment on Park Avenue into a true designer show place. Thank you for your great sense of style and taste!

I knew Ilaria and her team were going to be a fit for my listing from the first introductory phone call I had with her. Ilaria’s experience and eye for design are unrivaled in this field, and her work speaks for itself. The property she staged for me is a top tier beachfront property on the North Shore of Chicago and the goal was to highlight this home with luxurious, yet neutral furnishings that would feature the lake views from virtually every room. Not only was the work done to perfection, but Ilaria’s response time is absolutely amazing. The brochure I created from her images is worthy of a coffee table book. I look forward to working with Ilaria on all of my staging projects moving forward.

I sold a property that Ilaria staged the first day it was on the market. The apartment had been on the market with another agent for months. Ilaria’s staging made all the difference. She has fabulous taste, and an unerring eye for scale, proportion, furniture arrangement, color and style, all the while listening to the type of buyer a particular property would attract. Ilaria is totally committed, works very hard, is extremely energetic and fastidious down to the last detail. Ilaria’s turnaround time for staging a property is the fastest in the industry.

Having met Ilaria Barion in person, I knew I would be in good hands with her and her team. She virtually staged a luxury 4,000 square foot vacant apartment in the $4M price range in downtown Chicago, so it was key that it be done appropriately and in an upscale manner. The attention to details and the furnishings used after discussion of the look I was hoping to achieve resulted in a beautifully staged apartment with upscale looking furniture. The turnaround time was excellent. Ilaria and her team exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to engage her services again.

Beautiful interiors! Thank you, Ilaria, I had seven showing requests the first two days on the market. A vacant room rarely gets noticed. Your selection of furnishings also gave this pre-war apt a fresh look - great job!
— Linda Shaughnessy, SVP Sales Jameson Sotheby's International, Chicago, IL
Absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for your efforts. I am always amazed as I see the care you take, and the little things you do that make the staging come to life.
