Fresh new look for Summer ‘19!

May has been a big month for us! As part of our year-long 10th anniversary celebration, we relaunched We’ve been hard at work redesigning our site and it is now ready to share with you and your clients. We’ve totally reorganized, added tons of new photos, before + after staging transformations, fresh testimonials, and have streamlined everything. If you’d like to share any feedback, please feel free. We always love hearing from you.

In this month’s newsletter you’ll find more fresh looks some of our favorite recent projects. Call or contact us and let’s work together to transform your next listing into a true showstopper!

This month we’re highlighting three unique properties:


Jay Costello through Alain Pinel lists this beautiful Marina condo. In addition to staging, Sayde Mark Designs consulted on paint colors, light fixtures, and property updates and the result is modern, bright, and chic. Check out before + after photos and see the difference for yourself. Stop by soon to check out this quiet, dreamy, top floor gem.


This renovated 2 unit home listed by Frank Wu and Bryan Sue was a dream to stage. The generous open floor plan was a perfect blank slate to fill with high end, modern furniture, unique objects and lots of art.


Emily Dunn from Compass just sold this charming 2 bedroom in Westwood Highlands, truly a perfect home for a small family. This project was a good example of bringing modern, high end furnishings into a home with beautiful period details. Every home has its own character and it is our goal to breath new life into the details that make it unique. That's part of what makes our job so fun! No two homes are the same and we bring a distinct look to every project. 


Sage Sayde Says…



Okay, what's the deal with all the IPOs this year? When is the best time to list my property?

Sage Sayde says:

When asked about the best time to list a property, a realtor once told me, “when it’s ready.” I agree! I mean seriously, we’re in a region that has the most billionaires per capita, and a millionaire everywhere you look. I’m not trying to be glib, but what’s another couple hundred millionaires in a city of 800,000+? Lyft and Uber had their IPOs, but they can’t exercise options for six months. Who knows what’s even going to happen tomorrow for goodness sakes?
There's so much speculation, so many different projections, and so many variables. At the end of the day the IPOs may not have a big impact on the SF market in the near term, but in the long term it is certainly good to see general growth in the finance and tech sectors. That, of course, is balanced by the incredible housing boom going up downtown and in nearby neighborhoods.
No one has a crystal ball, but it’s fun to speculate. Here are some articles that I found informative on this matter. It's all pretty fascinating….. One thing for sure, when you’re ready to list make the property look its best with staging from Sayde Mark Designs!
