We recently sold our home in two weeks, thanks in large part to the expertise of Lisa Pacello and her company A Fresh Look Design. Lisa took our comfortable, i.e. worn and dated, home and turned it into a show place. Lisa isn’t just a decorator, she used consumer science as well as decorating trends to stage our home. It was beautiful and now it’s gone. Thank you Lisa!
— Pam & James Belk

We truly love working with Lisa She is very knowledgeable, a great communicator and has a passion for exceptional customer service which is exactly why we chose to work with her. I am very happy to have her as a part of our team!
— Andy Bovender, #1 Allen Tate Team - NC & SC

She makes the final product amazing and ready to sell. I work with Home Stagers on a very regular basis, but Lisa stands out from the crowd. Her taste is incredible and she knows the current trends home buyers are looking for. I cannot say enough about her passion for her profession. Lisa is easy to work with and one of the best in her industry.
— Chris Velander, AFR Furniture

I followed all her recommendations and MY HOUSE WAS UNDER CONTRACT WITHIN THE FIRST 48 HOURS OF BEING ON THE MARKET. Thanks Lisa!
— V.H.Tawse Fort Mill, SC

I’ve known Lisa for many years and her approach during her staging and interior design consultations are incredible. She takes the time to walk my clients through her recommendations and has an incredible eye for how to improve the look and feel of a person’s home and helps to position my listings to quickly sell for top dollar. One example I have is that a client reached out to me to sell his home as he had hired 4 different realtors over the past 3 years and none of them could get the house sold. Lisa came in and met with them, made her recommendations. I had the home under contract within 14 days of it hitting the market. Lisa is an absolute gem and I would recommend her to anyone!
— Brian Casper, Keller Williams Ballantyne

The Kinterra Team has engaged the services of A Fresh Look Design for each of our listings over the past year with wonderful results. Our homeowners have been very pleased with the speed at which their homes sold, as well as the price they received. We are thankful for Lisa’s assistance in presenting our listings in their best light.
— Craig Miller, Kinterra Home Solutions

We worked with Lisa this year marketing our house and found her to be very prompt and accommodating and offers solid advice. Lisa is compassionate, always respectful and listens. I can highly recommend Lisa and her company to any seller.
— Jerry Jordan

OUR HOUSE SOLD THE FIRST DAY! Lisa did a fantastic job of giving us ideas and tips to stage our home. I am convinced it would not have sold if it were not for the staging. Thank you Lisa!
— Sheila Sharp Fort Mill, SC

Working with Lisa to stage our home was a great experience! She was friendly and respectful. OUR HOUSE SOLD IN ONE DAY FOR OVER ASKING PRICE. if we sell again, we will call Lisa.
— Melissa Williams

I decided to work with A Fresh Look Design after brief exchanges with a handful of stagers in the Charlotte area; It was pretty clear that Lisa had the knowledge needed for tasteful staging and was very friendly. My grandmother’s house sat on the market for about 6 months with little interest. I worked with Lisa from over 3 hours away and WE RECEIVED OUR OFFER FROM THE FIRST CLIENTS TO WALK THROUGH THE HOUSE AFTER LISA STAGED IT! Selling a house can be a tumultuous time but A Fresh Look Design made all the difference and they did it with care. I highly recommend their services!
— Holly Dwan, Waxhaw

We followed Lisa’s instructions and got a FULL PRICE OFFER THE FIRST WEEK! She is great!
— Todd Williams, Myers Park, NC

We are happy to report that WE SOLD OUR HOME IN TWO DAYS FOR 99% OF THE LISTING PRICE!! . I would recommend A Fresh Look Design to anyone selling a house.
— Tom Ferber, Baxter Village Fort Mill, SC
Lisa is amazing! She walks into a house, is kind and respectful, but is able to suggest changes that make a huge difference - many requiring no expenditures. I provide her staging services to my clients as I know what a difference it makes in selling a home. Clients are thrilled. Many have commented that had they known their house could look like this, they wouldn’t be selling.
— Kathryn Miller, Lising Specialist, Andy Bovender Team

Lisa has helped our clients think outside of the box. We utilize Lisa when the furnishings do not attract the targeted buyer. Lisa can talk to clients in a way that helps keep us agents out of the design business and in the Selling business. Utilizing relevant furnishings moves the target buyer from out of date comments to “Emotional Engagement.” Emotion sells......bottom line and always for more money.
— Paul Jamison, Broker Owner, Jamison Realty with KW

We went on the market at noon on Saturday. We received multiple offers, contract by 10:00 AM Sunday for over asking price. Staging is everything!!!
— Connie Clendenin 15208 Wyndham Oaks Dr Charlotte

The second day we listed we had an offer and by the third day a 2nd offer HIGHER THAN OUR ASKING PRICE. one person said, “Who wouldn’t want to live here?” after Lisa staged our vacant home. Lisa was thorough, easy to work with and I trust her implicitly I will use her to stage my new home so I can live with the WOW factor every day.
— Kathleen Flory, Southampton

I loved the way the house looked after staging. On the third day after listing, WE HAD TWO OFFERS AND SOLD!! I would definitely recommend staging. Lisa did an excellent job!
— Sandra Haynes

We were in a rush to sell quickly and were leery when our realtor suggested Staging as we thought it would be expensive. Our experience was fantastic!  We sold our house in 2 days and not far from asking price.
— Ron and Christa Mazzie 512 Shaw Ave Rock Hill, SC

Lisa is a fabulous Stager! Not only is she good at making a home look it’s best, but she also makes the experience enjoyable for the home owners. Only Lisa knows how to make that happen! Lisa is naturally gifted at staging, truly impressive!
— Roxanne Slye Listing Manager Andy Bovender Team

It was a pleasure working with Lisa. I live out-of-state and she staged my vacant condo. She also made suggestions as to how I could save money without sacrificing the overall look. Her ability to execute and deliver exceeded my expectations and there was an increase in site traffic and showings.
— P.G. Uptown Charlotte, Nc

WE SOLD OUR HOUSE ON THE FIRST SHOWING! Lisa had several suggestions that I believe helped my home be the one the buyers wanted. I defiantly recommend having your home staged before you list it.
— Michele Arnoldy, Fort Mill, SC

Lisa is a true professional! I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and I learned a lot and she is now helping me redecorate my new home. She also taught me to chalk paint!
— Laura Yopp Piper Glen

Lisa was AMAZING, house “under contract” for asking price with one showing. I have 3 smaller kids so this was priceless. We put our house on the market pretty quick and I needed help to get it looking “show worthy” quickly. She was clear and concise about what needed to “go” and what needed to “stay”, also brought in additional items to decorate where I was lacking. She gave me a “plan” not just ideas which is exactly what I needed because of the short time I had. Great person, great experience. Highly recommend. Worth every penny!
— Michelle and Ed Devaney New Providence Lane, Charlotte

WE GOT A CONTRACT ON THE HOUSE THE VERY FIRST DAY!! Thanks Lisa for all your help.
— Barb Beattie Fort Mill, SC

Thank you Lisa for your staging help. When we put our house back on the market, you were able to address many of the previous drawbacks and the advice you gave us was invaluable and made such a difference in the look of our house, and how it presented in pictures and in person.
— Kris Faris Tega Cay, SC

Lisa transformed our house of 17 years through her excellent staging skills. She simply used what we had to convert a different look. Through the entire process she was so patient with me. OUR HOUSE SOLD FOR $20,000 OVER THE ASKING PRICE IN 24 HOURS WITH MULTIPLE OFFERS!!!!!! I highly recommend her!
— Renita Fowler ,Park Crossing, Charlotte, NC

Thanks, Lisa, for all your help! I followed your suggestions and made the changes you advised AND WE SOLD TO THE FIRST AND ONLY BUYER TO LOOK AT IT!
— Tony P. Miller, Tega Cay, SC

A Fresh Look Design was fundamental in transforming our house prior to going to market, It really made a tremendous difference for the pictures. WE RECEIVED COMPETING OFFERS THE FIRST WEEK ON THE MARKET!
— Mitch and Carrie Roberts, Tega Cay, SC

Our realtor recommended Lisa who immediately made suggestions on both inside and outside the house, We found ourselves asking, “What would Lisa say about that?” It was surprising to see the difference in our home and how updated it looked. Staging was a great experience and Lisa was sensitive to our budget.
— Paul Ciani, ,Baxter Village Fort Mill, SC

WE SOLD OUR HOME IN JUST 2 DAYS OF BEING ON THE MARKET!! I enjoyed working with you!
— Paula Schumpert, Tega Cay, SC

When I put my house up for sale I asked Lisa to help with staging and to improve my curb appeal by staging the front garden. She purchased and planted flowers. She also shopped for reasonably priced urns for the front porch and filled them with colorful flowers. She was a huge help and my front looked lovely! Her staging ideas for streamlining my interior really helped my house show better for buyers.
— Debbis Kalczynski, Charlotte, NC

Lisa did a wonderful job staging my vacant listing. She has an eye for the details and really transformed the space, making it show ready. Lisa is a true professional and I look forward to working with her in the future
