Julie Demarest (Mobile AL)
I can't say enough about Showhomes and Kim Odom. It was the best decision I could have made to sell my house. Kim is so easy to work with and incredibly flexible. She assisted me with choosing paint and flooring for a rental property at first. When my situation changed, she transitioned to helping me stage the house for sale. Her staging was beautiful and everyone that came through the house loved it. The house received multiple offers within three days and is under contract. Kim has an eye for design and for what buyers are looking for in a home. She was on top of everything and kept in contact with me about every decision. Anyone needing design advice or considering selling a home, should definitely give Kim a call!
Leslie Hollis (Hayden AL)
Kim of Showhomes Mobile and Baldwin Co has beautiful home furnishings and accessories along with being a natural talent in interior design. We were so pleased with the final staging; it created a way for potential homebuyer envision living there. We professionally painted the interior and landscaped, then had Kim come in and work her magic. Our beautiful home sold in 21 days!
Leahia Wickware (AL)
Showhomes owner, Kim Odomâ€™s ability to listen as well as encouraged interaction with all parties involved displays confidence in her work while graciously receiving input from the non-stagers. (Lol) Her ideas are not forced but are in collaboration with the home owners. The professionalism respect and care shown to the homeowner and the realtor is quite remarkable.
Terrence Clark (Daphne AL)
Value We used ShowhomesMobileBldwn for staging our home which had been on the market for quite sometime. We had visitors but no one could envision their furniture there. After meeting with Kim Odom and her sharing her vision with us we had an increase in visits and an offer within 30 days. No way this wouldâ€™ve happened without her hard work and vision.
Sondra Blackwell (AL)
Kim is THE BEST at what she does
Judy Niemeyer (AL)
Your presentation is outstanding. Thank you for your service.
Carolyn Barnett (FL)
We appreciated the effort at accommodating our schedule. The decorating was tastefully done, and Kim was easy to work with. If we needed to stage another home, we would use this service again.
Jack Harlow (Gulf Breeze FL)
OUTSTANDING! I couldnâ€™t believe how much better it made the place look. DEFINITELY value added!
Alicia Abels (AL)
Kim did a beautiful job of staging my vacant home that got two offers above list price and sold my house on the first day of listing. We staged only areas that might have been difficult for buyers to visualize how to furnish on their own. It was transforming. Kim is talented, a pleasure to work with and price was reasonable. It would not have sold that quickly without the staging. Thank you, Kim! From Californian selling my old rental home in Daphne
Lisa Perkins (Pickwick Dam TN)
Kim Odom at Showhomes used her years of experience and expertise to turn a house we purchased in Fairhope into a home. Our project required work from skilled contractors. Not only did Kim locate some exceptional craftsmen but she coordinated and oversaw the entire project to completion. We appreciated everything she did because living 6 hours away made it almost impossible to get things done. Kim worked tirelessly to locate all the new furnishings to reflect our personal taste and lifestyle. She created our dream home....a home to one day retire to. She is a joy to work with and made the entire experience a pleasure.
Jack Harlow (Gulf Breeze FL)
I couldn't believe how much it changed the appearance. Worth every penny!
Yasmin Davis (Pensacola FL)
Prompt communications, flexibility in scheduling, professional design. Excellent!
Tim Foote (Loudon NH)
I like how the staging hides certain flaws in a floor plan and brings an empty house to life!
Julie Felicelli (Clarkston MI)
Our empty house did not show the potential we hoped and we were interested in seeing how staging would change that dynamic. Kim came, looked, measured and had a plan in a very short time. She gave us a proposal, and once accepted, quickly filled our home with trendy, smart items. She assisted our realtor with holiday accents during open house moments and offered to continue the project (after our original contract) at a very reasonable price. We are very traditional in taste and she brought a new, clean look to our beautiful home. We would recommend her services to anyone who needs to show their home at its best.
Jim Cerezo (Franklin TN)
Staged the house beautifully and it sold quickly. Great taste and an eye for detail. If I were to sell another property I would use again!
Bob Shell (AL)
Always performs as scheduled. Execution is excellent. Have always sold every home that was staged. Very skillful.
Byron Haynie (Chester SC)
The professionalism !
Alison Davenport (AL)
Turnaround time is amazing, quality of the furnishings and execution that demonstrates the property's strenghts.
Connie Hampton (Gulf Shores AL)
I love the product and the professionalism of the owner. The results were amazing! Home was under contract in 1 day!!
Donna Evans (Fairhope AL)
We are very happy with the service Showhomes provided in staging Marquee Custom Homebuilders new home in the fruit and nut section of downtown Fairhope. The home looks fantastic and provides our potential buyers with a fabulous visual on how the house can look furnished. Kim came in on time and on budget and we truly enjoy doing business with her. This is the second home Showhomes has staged for us and going forward we will definitely consider staging all of our spec homes. Thanks! Donna Evans Marquee Custom Homebuilders, LLC
Donna Evans (Point Clear AL)
Kim is so easy to work with and has a great eye.
Lea Theodore (Fairhope AL)
Kim was great!
Jeanice Durgin (Mobile AL)
My sellers were a little skeptical about staging their home until a few months passed by with tons of showing in a vacant home and no offers. SHOWHOMES works speaks for itself and the sellers was completely comfortable and satisfied after speaking KIM ODOM. Kim moved swiftly adding her touches and left no stone unturned. The Home was spectacular. We had multiple offers in a couple of days. SHOWHOMES=SOLD. Thanks again Kim!!!!
Jen Clarke (Mobile AL)
I love how helpful they are; she really spent time to find things that I would like even when I didn't know how to tell her what I would like :)
Alayne Kendall (Orange Beach AL)
We placed our rental home for sale. Being the house was empty we felt it would show better staged. We called Show homes and met with Kim. She came out & viewed the house and provided a reasonable quote for staging. The house was staged within a week & they provided photos as well as a video of property to be used in the advertising of the house. Very professional and would highly recommend this company
Dennis Conway (Mobile AL)
Showhomes Mobile/ Baldwin County delivered! The design and staging of our home exceeded expectations. From beginning to end the timing, character, charisma of the final product provided just what our home needed to sell!

I had a home on the market for one year, with an nontraditional floorplan. I called Show homes for help and they set up an appointment and toured the home. Kim was so friendly, kind and worked out a great deal that benefitted every one involved. The staging turned out beautiful and the new pics produced tons of new showings. Kim even assisted me with hosting an open house and provided items of value for customer drawings. We received an offer on the home shortly after and successfully closed. I would definitely do business with Show homes again!
Sondra Blackwell (Fairhope AL)
I have worked with Showhomes many times in the past and have had outstanding results. Kim is the consummate professional and handled every aspect of the project with the utmost respect for my client and my company. The home was decorated beautifully and it sold very quickly. I would definitely recommend this company and I will use them again. Thanks, Kim!

I have used Show Homes of Mobile and Baldwin County for 2 houses now. Both times I had a great experience and beautiful results. Previously in 11/2015 I decided to repaint our entire house; Kim came over and rescued my DIY paint options (read 20+lilttle paint sample squares all over my house). She ended up helping me pick colors that went well with the finishes I was not changing out; even finding an amazing new cabinet color I would NEVER have had the nerve to make happen. I loved that she really listened to me about my style and helped me when I didn't even know how to say what I wanted. When we ended up offering our house for sale the next year--we got a full price offer before the flowers we bought for listing pictures could wilt!! We have now purchased our next home and Kim has already done all our new paint colors (painting all done now too--thanks to Pro1 Painters) and she also came and hung a good bit of the pictures--always something that seems to take me MONTHS to get done after a move. I would highly recommend Show Homes Mobile and Baldwin Co to anyone Several of my new neighbors have already asked for her contact info!

Home was listed for 6+months. Kim staged it and it was under contract in a few short weeks.
Robin Managan (Fairhope AL)
My Mothers home sat on the market for over 2 years with hardly any showings and no offers. We took it off the market, Called Showhomes, they came in and did a wonderfull job of staging the entire home, Beautifully. After listing the home again and using the beautiful pictures and virtual video that Kim provided, we had an offer in less than 10 days, (1st person that looked at it) after putting it back on the market. I would say to anyone that is considering staging their home, that Showhomes did a Fantastic job and it was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

Margaret Pettyjohn (Mobile AL)
Thank you Showhomes!! The staging made ALL the difference!!
Jennifer Grace (Daphne AL)
After sitting on the market for 10 months with very little traffic, my agent suggested a Showhomes staging and it was the best decision I ever made. Showings tripled and I had an offer in two months and just closed!!! Angela is professional and attentive, the staging was gorgeous, and my house managers were delightful; the neighbors ended up being friends. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation!
John Williamson (AL)
Good option for a short term basis, lower priced, no commitment length, larger homes in better locations.
Dana Hammele (AL)
I'd like to say that Showhomes made it so easy for my client and for me. During the timeframe we were considering staging, I had a very tough family emergency and it was all handled efficiently and effectively for me.
Robert Delong (Mobile AL)
The staging made my house look like a model home, the reason I sold my home in 4 days!
Dr. Lawrence Roberts, PharmD. - President and Founder of Port City Real Estate Investors Assoc. (Mobile AL)
As a real estate investor, I was looking for something that would put my homes over the top and help my homes stand above all the other homes on the market. That is when I found Showhomes. Showhomes's professionalism, prompt service, and attention to details has helped me sell numerous homes faster and for more money than my competition. Thanks Show Homes.
Tammy Boudreau (Mobile & Baldwin County AL)
"Showhomes has staged several of our homes and they have all looked fabulous. Angela is very accommodating and she always gets our model homes moved on short notice. We receive a lot of great feedback from customer’s viewing our model homes staged by Showhomes. It really makes a big difference!”
Rhonda G. Norris (Daphne AL)
"It has been a pleasure working with you and your staff staging some of my listings. I really appreciate the professional way that everything has been handled with my clients. Staging takes a blank canvas and paints a new picture of the home. I would recommend Showhomes to anyone when they are looking for a way to go from For Sale to Sold!"
Rodney Hoffman (Fairhope AL)
"I would recommend Showhomes without reservation. My home, after being on the market without an offer for eight months, sold shortly after Showhomes did the staging. Angela and Tammy were both pleasant and professional in my dealings with them and they went out of their way to accommodate my needs. The transfer of my home to the new owners happened with a weeks notice, yet Angela and Tammy adjusted their busy schedule to make it all happen. And they did so with a "We're here to make you happy," attitude. Needless to say, they did just that."
Homeowner (Spanish Fort AL)
My home was on the market for over two years, looking a little sad with empty rooms. More than 30 agents and their clients visited, yeilding two low ball offers and a changed mind, cancelled sale. Angela and Tammy of Showhomes came in to refurnish the empty nest and my home sold before they completed the job........Pure magic. I wish I hired them a long time ago.
RE/MAX By the Bay Realtor (Daphne AL)
"This listing sat vacant for several months with little showings and no interest. It was very difficult to visualize furniture placement. The home was cold and bare. A young woman in the neighborhood was looking for a house for her parents. She had seen this house vacant and passed. Her parents were in town and drove by the house, asking their daughter to go in. She said, "Absolutely not! It's terrible." They urged her to schedule a showing. Upon entering the home, she was completely amazed at the transformation. Now rooms were defined, it was cozy and inviting and best of all, her parents bought the house! Showhomes indeed added value to my listing."
Coldwell Banker Reehl Properties Realtor (Fairhope AL)
"Amazing" - Fowler, a Coldwell Banker Reehl Properties Realtor, sold his listing that had been on the market for 3 years. After Showhomes staged the home, it sold in 3 months."
Dauphin Realty Broker/Owner (Mobile AL)
"I would do it again in a minute" - Russell, broker / owner of Dauphin Realty, used Showhomes to stage and sell her personal home. The home, which had been vacant for over a year, sold in 3 days for list price."
RE/MAX Partners Realtor (Mobile AL)
"I thought the home would show better vacant, but that has not been the case - showings have doubled and the word has gotten out. After Showhomes held an open house, the home sold for full list price in 2 weeks. This home had been on the market for six months."
Realtor RE/MAX By the Bay Fairhope (Fairhope AL)
"We enjoyed working with you and Showhomes. We will definitely refer you to future clients.”
Realtor Prudential Nichols (Daphne AL)
“Showhomes Home Managers bring life to a home and it’s much easier to show. The homes are always in great shape and ready to show, inside and out. I had a listing in Plantation Malbis that had been on the market for several months but within 5 weeks after Showhomes placed the Home managers into the home we had a signed contract and a closing date.
Homeowner (Daphne AL)
“Thank You for the personal and excellent service that your company and home managers have provided me. Working with you has been fun and also has given me a good peace of mind and comfort that my home was in good hands.”
Custom Home Builder (Daphne AL)
Showhomes doesn’t just bring furniture- they bring an environment! We had a new construction home in the Bellaton subdivision that had been on the market for about a year and within 6 weeks of the completion of staging, the home sold. We again used Showhomes at a home we had in the Yorkshire subdivision and it sold within 8 weeks. We believe that staging with Showhomes is like putting icing on a cake, it is the finished product.
The Real Estate Group (Birmingham AL)
Showhomes helped me sell two newly constructed homes that simply didn't show well without furniture. What a difference the Home Manager and professional staging made.
Homeowner (Daphne AL)
After our home sat vacant for six months-with one low-ball offer-we contacted Showhomes, and it was the best decision we ever made. Showings doubled immediately, and within eight weeks of placing the Home Manager, we had two premium offers in hand.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is home staging?When a home is "staged", it's furnished and decorated in a way that's carefully designed to maximize the home's appeal to prospective buyers.
- What benefits does home staging offer to a Homeowner?A properly staged home has just the right quality and quantity of furnishings for a buyer to understand how rooms function and how spaces flow. Staging creates warmth, life, and positive emotion. Good staging avoids clutter or overly personalized decor that might be a turn-off to some. It maximizes the home's strengths while minimizing any shortcomings. Staging engages prospective buyers, increases their interest and perception of value. A prospective buyer becomes more likely to buy!
- Do you provide staging services for owner-occupied homes?Yes, we are a full service staging organization and can provide help for homes that are occupied either for sale or for those who just want to update the look of their property.
- What is a Home Manager?A Home Manager is an individual or family who assists Showhomes by living in a Showhome and caring for it while it's on the market. Showhomes painstakingly selects and trains each Home Manager in accordance with the system we've developed through three decades of experience.
- Why would I use a Home Manager to help sell my home?A Home Manager benefits the Homeowner by caring for the home and reducing the Homeowner's carrying costs. Some examples of carrying costs that a Home Manager would cover would be utilities, gas, water, and the ability to take advantage of the savings of our national insurance program. The Home Manager helps in the sales effort by readying the house for showings and through the added life and emotional appeal their belongings contribute. Homes staged with live-in Home Managers typically out-perform vacant homes by large margins.
- Is a Home Manager present during showings?No, Home Managers are not present during showings. Prospective buyers won't know that your home is even staged; it will simply look and feel like a homeowner lives in and loves the home. Everything is in its place and your home shows as well or better than it would if you still lived there.
- How is Showhomes different from others who offer staging services?Life sells homes. Buying a home is an emotional decision for most people and Showhomes is unique in the way it helps to sell homes. Using a live in Home Manager assures you that the entire home is staged to perfection and that it is always tuned up and in show-to-sell condition. Because of this, your home is far less vulnerable to low-ball offers than it would be if it were simply staged with furniture.
- Does Showhomes act as a Realtor?No. Showhomes provides staging services that make your home far more attractive to prospective buyers. Almost all Showhomes are listed by full-service Realtors. Showhomes does not represent buyers or sellers in the real estate transaction; that is the service your Realtor is trained and licensed to provide.
- Does Showhomes offer staging services without Home Managers?Yes. If you are interested in staging services without a Home Manager contact your local office. Pricing varies by location.
- Is smoking allowed in a Showhome?No. Our promise to homeowners is a smoke free home that appeals to the largest percentage of prospective buyers.
- What happens when a Showhome sells?As soon as you accept an offer, we begin the process of relocating our Home Manager. Unlike a tenant, our Home Managers are under contract to move on short notice and once we succeed in selling your home, we are often ready to begin staging another home. We return your home to you in as good or even better condition than when we received it and the new buyers get a fresh, clean home to move into.
- What are the benefits of being a Home Manager?Flexibility, low housing costs, short or long-term housing solution, no long term committment.
- Who provides the furnishings for a Showhome?A critical requirement of Home Managers is that they have an inventory of fine furniture and accessories that meets our quality standards that they move from house to house. Showhomes supplements furniture as needed for each home.

In today's market, staging a home with a live-in Home Manager can steeply reduce the amount of time the home sits on the market and bring in offers far above what a homeowner would get if the home remained vacant. For a Realtor, this means less hassle, faster sale, higher commission and a happier homeowner.
