Judy Henson is my go-to stager when referring clients to a stager for staging vacant houses, a service I no longer offer as part of my own staging business. Judy is very creative and has exquisite taste. She has the ability to use staging to appeal to the target buyer for any house, which makes her a savvy marketer. I appreciate having such a reliable and talented resource for my clients, or for any Realtor who contacts me looking for vacant-home staging.

I work as a Realtor and was having a tough time selling one of my listings because of the awkward floorplan. I called Jude to stage the home so that buyers could visualize everything more clearly. Within 2 weeks after putting the staged home back on the market, we received a full price offer! I truly believe that Jude’s experience and staging helped us sell the listing. THANKS JUDE!!!

Our real estate agent originally hired Judy to give us advice on how to stage our home for the market. She was very professional and candid and gave us a plan on a budget. Judy was very pleasant to work with, easily accessible for any questions we had and accommodated our thoughts and ideas. She took our home from a 1990’s decor nightmare to an updated transitional home. We would recommend Judy to anyone needing decorating advise and will not hesitate to engage her again

Judy Henson (Real Home by Jude) has provided home staging services for several of my clients and has exceeded my expectations every time. Her knowledge, experience and keen eye have been invaluable in helping my clients prepare their homes for sale. She is respectful and kind and has a way of relating to my clients that always impresses me. Whether it’s a cluttered, disorganized house that is going on the market, or a house that’s been sitting on the market for months, Judy has a way of coming in and getting it into shape and staged so it sells quickly. She’s a hard worker, stays on budget, and meets her deadlines. She makes me look good! I’m a firm believer and can’t sing Judy’s praises enough!

Judy is a quality person. She did a great job staging my condo. After having the condo on the market for 8 months with no offers, Judy did her magic and I had an offer within a month. I live out of state and had one meeting with Judy. With her contacts the condo was painted, new carpeting and staged in record time and back on the market.

Excellent staging on this condo, took it from a blank slate to a showcase setting! Made all the difference in the world to buyers and we did receive an offer quickly after staging.
Pat Anderson, Realtor
Judy’s staging helped my client get an over asking price for her home. Highly recommend Judy for her professionalism and great taste.
Robert Garcia, Realtor
Being an out of state seller, Judy was the perfect match to stage our home. Her customer service and services she offered made staging a home from afar painless. She provided great advice and assisted me in making the right decisions to draw great interest to our home. The result was multiple offers within two weeks.

Judy staged the first floor of our home including, living room, great room, sun room, dining area and kitchen. She also did the master bed and bath. As we had already moved the house would have been empty when listed. She transformed what would have been large impersonal empty spaces back into a “home” with personality. Our house received a full price offer on the first day of showing one week before Thanksgiving and closed in less than thirty days. There is no doubt in my mind that staging the home enhanced its attractiveness and sped up the process. I would highly recommend Judy and her service.
Paul, Canton, MI
My empty condo was on the market for 5 months with many “lookers” … but no offers. I decided to have it staged by “Real Home By Jude” and it was sold within 4 weeks. Her creativity, timeliness, furniture selection and overall coordination was impressive. The staging cost ended up to be a good return on my investment.
Steve, Novi, MI
I am sold! After staging my condo, I got 3 full price cash offers and closed in 14 days! If anyone has a doubt, don’t! Just trust them, they were right and I have over 19 years experience in residential real estate.

Judy was very knowledgable & had a real sense of style. She was timely & delivered as promised. Judy was friendly & I instantly felt comfortable with her. We used her to stage our vacant home. She used furnishings that provided a warm homey feel. We would definitely use her again!
Kim, Chelsea, MI
Jude did a great job with our investment property. The styling was perfect and matched the craftsman style we were trying to maintain. Her inventory has quality pieces and she was willing to search for key pieces if she didn’t have what we were wanting. We gave her full authority to stage the house as she envisioned, and she delivered! Very happy with her services and received many compliments from potential buyers on the staging. Sold the house in 3 weeks too!
Debbie, Brighton, MI
Jude is a serious professional. As a Realtor, I use her for all my listings! She understands what homeowners need and how to improve the sale-ability of a home through fabulous photos and sensational staging. Homeowners find her suggestions beneficial and see that they contribute towards the bottom line sales price.
Rhonda, Commerce, MI
“When we were ready to list our home, I wasn’t sure how to begin, or how to pull things together to optimize our home sale potential. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed! Jude met with me, answered all my questions and explained the process. Jude guided me through several key decisions, purchased the items and put them in place for an absolutely gorgeous result. We listed out house on a Friday afternoon, and had a full price offer Saturday morning. I really appreciate Jude’s professionalism and calming effect during an extremely stressful time.”
Sue, Plymouth, MI
“At the advice of our realtor, several months prior to listing our home for sale we had a staging consultation with Jude to analyze what steps needed to be taken to best present our 4,000 square foot house to potential buyers. Jude’s objective room by room advice and task list gave us the direction we needed to prepare our home to its best advantage. Additional hands on consultations over the months helped us to stay on the right track and refine the staging. As very business professionals with small children, we utilized Jude to further assist by selecting furnishings and accessories to prepare our home for the market. Our home sold after only two weeks! I would highly recommend Real Home by Jude to all potential sellers.”
Greg, Novi, MI
“For many years while our girls were young, the den off the foyer of our home had been used as a playroom. As the girls grew up we wanted to make the den a cozy haven and bring in a computer/homework area. Not knowing where to start and how to tie it into the rest of our home we asked Jude to provide a design plan using some of our current furnishings. Jude’s design plan was amazing and considered all aspects of our lifestyle, including budget. She provided us a design board, a true to scale floor plan and sourcing list for all of the beautiful furniture and accessories as well as explanations as to why she selected the pieces. We have completed the room and love every aspect of it! My girls refer to it as the ‘pretty room’!”
Kary, Novi, MI
“Building a new home and making design decisions can be an overwhelming experience with potentially costly mistakes. Faced with that we started working with Jude prior to and during construction of our dream home to be certain to make timeless and well thought out decisions. Jude absolutely made the decision process a great deal easier and less stressful with her expert advice, providing a vision and direction for the entire home, including furnishing design boards and floor plans so we could picture our selections and tweak them along the way.”
Karen and Doug, South Lyon, MI
Very professional and easy to work with. Jude had great ideas and vision for the home. She was prompt and on time with the schedule of work to be done. I am very pleased with the job.
