Living Room


"I discovered Jo with Linen & Thyme Staging in 2009 and she has become an invaluable piece of my marketing plan.  Jo has the eye of a buyer and understands what it takes to get a property sold.  Whether a house is occupied or vacant, she orchestrates the plan that allows sellers to get top dollar."

"We were extremely pleased with the staging done by Jo, of Linen and Thyme Staging.   We hired her twice, for the same home (it was rented out in-between).  Her furniture and accessories were great, and very complimentary to the house, completely warmed up the empty rooms.  We know it absolutely helped to sell!"

"Where do I start when asked about Joanna Ontiveros?  She's simply the best.  She has helped me and a multitude of my clients prepare their homes for sale.  She is an indispensable resource for decorating, staging, advice on repairs that will generate a return and other related important details to present property in its best light. She performs all of this in a very friendly, but honest, manner.  Don't hire her unless you want her professional opinion.  She won't try to make you feel good, but if you take her advice you will earn many multiples of the modest fee she charges.  Don't sell your house without her! "


-Michael Downing, Windermere CCRGI, Realtors


"For vacant properties, her goal is accentuating strengths.  Vignettes and full room staging transform a cold, unoccupied home into a place buyers are dreaming about.  Jo constantly refreshes her furnishings, and has period appropriate items for all types of homes.  Some of the projects Jo has staged for me include a million dollar renovation in Irvington, a small, turn of the century Craftsman in Hawthorne, a clean Bungalow in Sabin and a completely original 1957 Atomic Ranch.  Each of these homes sold with multiple offers in less than a week!"

"I want to thank you for all you have done for us as we went through the process of preparing our home for sale.  We are so impressed with your professionalism and the results are amazing.  I have told so many people how observant you are of space and light.  I also appreciated that you visited our home three different times to "observe the light" before you recommended paint colors.  The colors feel "up to date" without sacrificing a respect for the beautiful architecture and wood trim in our home."


-Kate and Mike Bennison


"We were very impressed how you effortlessly  turned every room you touched into a "show case."  Now, whenever  my husband and I are rearranging furniture or hanging art we have a saying,  "WWJD?"  It may be sacrilegious on some level, but of course we are referring to "What Would Jo Do?"

-Kate and Mike Bennison


"I have been so impressed with Jo and Linen and Thyme staging that I use them on nearly all of my listings. It's hard to argue with the top dollar prices and speed of sales that I get when enlisting their help!"
