With nearly 15 years of experience working closely with the corporate travel industry, the RC Designs team understands the importance of preparing a listing for online marketing and anticipating the needs of the buyer. Working with everyone from traveling healthcare professionals to relocating executives has taught our team to pay meticulous attention to detail. We understand the necessity of creating a memorable first impression. Our goal is for the homes we stage to sell at the highest possible price; and for the short term rentals we style to always be fondly remembered by guests.

RC Designs and Staging Team

Dave and Liz Laird of RC Designs with their children.

The past two years have been a seminal time in the Northern California real estate market. With up to 93% of home buyers beginning their home search online, first impressions have never mattered more. Combine that with higher buyer expectations than ever before and home staging becomes a crucial part of preparing a home for sale.

We know that our clients want more, and we know what “more” means. Whether you’re a first time home seller or an experienced agent, RC Designs and Staging is ready to help you prepare your property for photography, virtual tours, and in person showings. Our design team will bring your project to life with the look of designer furnishings; the feel of a luxurious home, and all of this at a great price point.


Of course we love as much time as possible to plan for your staging in case we need to order special pieces for your home, but understand if you’re in a hurry to list. Typical turnaround is 7-10 days but we have done next day deliveries for our clients when needed.

Yes, of course! For occupied listings, our stagers will visit the home with the realtor and the seller in order to plan which pieces should be brought in from our inventory as well as help the seller identify which of their personal items should be packed away before staging day.

We own all of our own inventory and purchase from many different sources. Whenever possible, we prioritize making purchases from other small businesses in order to support our local community.

We highly recommend an in-person consultation so that our team can get a feel for the size and scale of the space.

Occupied staging – We stage the home when the seller is still living in the home. We bring in some of our furniture pieces that will complement theirs and guide them through the “minimalizing” process.  We then bring in the accessories, art,  and decor to complete the staging.
Partial staging- A partial staging occurs when the home is unoccupied but has some furniture. We upgrade the appearance of the home with wall art, additional furniture as needed, florals, tabletop decor, linens and throw pillows.
Complete staging- We transform an empty, vacant home into a gorgeously furnished space.  This allows buyers to visualize the potential of each professionally designed room.
