Kim Pearse
Owner and Lead Designer

Hi, I’m Kim. Along with my talented team, I make the magic happen at The Staging Consultant.

I’m a no-nonsense Ohio-to-Nashville transplant who began The Staging Consultant after moving to the Middle Tennessee area three years ago.

I made the plunge into the waters of home staging after spending 31 years in the financial industry. During my decades in finance, I loved helping people make as much money as possible on their biggest assets. And what’s usually a person’s largest financial asset? YOU GUESSED IT: Their home.

Along with my passion for design, color, and texture, home staging was a natural, no-questions-asked fit. I want what you wantto sell your home quickly, and for lots of money. And how do you do this? Through staging.

A client once told me, “I am now convinced I need to have a stager come anywhere I live to give me imagination for my home’s potential.”

I believe all homes can stand out and make a measurable difference. I have seen firsthand a home transform from bland to glam, from “ow” to “wow!”, from months on the market to an offer on the home days later—all thanks to staging. Staging is truly every home’s ticket to its own Cinderella story.

I work with each seller’s abilities, budget, and time frame to stage a property that writes a love story between the home and potential buyers. Through staging, we create amazing and marketable photos of your home that will have potential buyers crushing hard before they even come for a tour.

I’m also teacher in disguise, leading a 3 hour CE class for real estate agents to educate them on the results-driven power of home staging. One of my favorite things is seeing a client’s eyes light up with the understanding of staging strategies and benefits during a consultation.

Let me show you staging is the solution to whatever is behind the front door. Let’s get your home ready to sell through staging!

When I’m not working with my amazing clients or teaching classes, I am visiting my children who live all over the U.S., boating, reading, traveling, or scouring retail shops for affordable treasures.

I have worked with Kim on multiple occasions and she has been kind, thorough, knowledgeable, and bottom line - she gets the job done properly and didn’t let me down. We had a great time collaborating together and she feels like a friend when you talk with her. HIGHLY recommend her for any of your staging needs!

We chose the option to have a staging plan put together for us that we could then implement in stages. The results were fantastic and working with The Staging Consultant was a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend.

The Staging Consultant helped me get the look my sellers and I were going for on a high-end renovation that took it to the next level for pictures and showings. Kim gave us lots of options so we could keep our budget in check too! I referred Kim w/ The Staging Consultant within just a couple weeks of the first time I worked with them.

Great job in a really small condo that had some challenges! I am certain the work done helped us sell much faster than we otherwise would have. Easy to work with and friendly!

Kim did an amazing job staging our vacant listing. Her work transformed the look and feel of the home in every way.

Kim was great to work with and did an AMAZING JOB staging my house. It looks like a model home. Kim was friendly, available as needed, supportive, and so helpful. She went out of her way to work around my schedule to stage my house. I would highly recommend Kim and her services. Her eye for detail and color is great.

Kim and team were AMAZING and went the extra mile to assist and help sell our home. She was beyond professional and efficient and was always looking out for our best interest. The consultation was spot on and the staging was a perfect fit for our home and budget. I have nothing but high praise for The Staging Consultant and would recommend them to anyone that is looking for staging to sell their home.

Kim, What a beautiful job you and your team did on our house. WE are so impressed. I am not convinced I need to have a stager come anywhere I live to give me the imagination for my home’s potential. You are great at what you do. Thanks for sharing your skill with us.

I hired Kim to stage one of my listings when activity on the home had lulled. She did a fantastic job and worked tirelessly to stage the house beautifully. Kim also had the house professionally photographed which showed the home in the best light online. I immediately noticed a huge increase in showing requests and achieved a quick offer (multiple offers, actually). Staging is so important, and Kim is the BEST. I plan on using her services whenever possible.

Needed the staging done immediately, and The Staging Consultant delivered. Want above and beyond to make this happen quickly. Very professional and loved what they did to our house. Would highly recommend them!

Kim is the best Stager around. I hired Kim to come to my upcoming listing to give the sellers staging direction so we could maximize proceeds for the sellers, using only the sellers’ furnishings (the sellers had done some home improvements prior, so they did not have the extra cash to rent or purchase more furnishings and accessories). She gave concrete direction and suggestions. The sellers did what she suggested, and we got the house on the market. It was one of the most expensive listings in that neighborhood, and other similar listed homes had been sitting on the market for a while. This house had a severe driveway issue - part gravel and part broken asphalt, and Kim suggested that we ignore that, which turned out to be the right advice. My listing sold the next day, at full price. The sellers walked away with proceeds that amounted to $40K MORE than they would have had they not staged.
