A Real Estate Staging Pioneer

SOS was founded in 2004 when the staging industry was in its infancy. Since that time, we have helped thousands of homeowners, real estate agents, investors and builders get their properties prepared, staged and sold.  SOS provides efficient, expert solutions for anyone looking to get their property ready for market.


In 2021, SOS expanded to provide an estate sale retail store, SOS Home.  We host our client's estate sales in our storefront to provide easy estate liquidation in a retail environment.

SOS is a family owned and operated company and strives to provide exceptional service in every aspect of the business.
