S & A staged a contemporary high rise penthouse for us. Their layout and design were very good, they highlighted features and mitigated shortcomings. The installation and de-installation were very careful, clean, and professional. Communication with the office was clear and consistent. In short, they were an excellent teammate and helped give us an edge that made a difference.

Spade and Archer very generously staged one of our apartments at Compass Housing Alliance's newest Permanent Affordable Housing site for a week before new residents moved in - many of whom were previously experiencing homelessness. During our Grand Opening, we were able to tour community members, neighbors, and press through a furnished apartment so they could see what it would look like full of furniture. It made a world of difference and the apartment was really tastefully staged. It was a joy to work with the staff and we can't thank them enough. Thank you Spade and Archer for being such a generous member of our community!!

Spade and Archer as a company, and specifically Laara Garcia, did a fantastic job staging a 30 year old semi-modern condo. The condo was listed and sold in short order and the staging certainly helped maximize the views and emotional urgency of the prospective Buyers. They clearly communicated timelines and met them with 100% accuracy. I will definitely be calling on Spade & Archer again!

Spade & Archer not only excels in their staging design talents but also in their extraordinarily high level of customer service. They are very professional and easy to work with and I couldn't recommended them more highly.

As a Portland Realtor, my clients are often in need of professional home staging. The first name I think of is Spade and Archer Design. I acquired an expired listing after 6 months on market with another Realtor. I immediately called Justin at Spade and Archer, had his team stage the home, and received two offers in just days on market making for a VERY happy seller. Many homeowners cry after seeing their home staged and wish it would have looked that good other than just in the month prior to moving. Spade and Archer has furnishings for any style of home, at any price point. If you want your home sold in the shortest amount of time for it's highest value, call Spade and Archer today!

Spade and Archer has truly mastered the art of staging. They understand design and understand the best ways for properties to be showcased. Not only are they capable of turning otherwise forgettable rooms into beautiful living spaces, but each of their associates is such a pleasure to work with. No other staging company compares in terms of both process and aesthetic. They know exactly how to interact with clients, they install to absolute perfection, and they coordinate everything with such ease that from the moment an appointment is booked, I know I can trust them to handle the rest. I cannot recommend them highly enough and after working with multiple companies in the Portland area, I can confidently say Spade and Archer is the best!

Game changer getting top dollar for sellers!!! They are in a league of their own of staging companies. After 12 years in real estate, I finally have found a company that exudes excellence, class, professionalism-- and they're fun to work with. Sellers and prospective buyers, both, rave about how THIS staging differentiates the home from others on the market. I am a HUGE fan! (Photos are from several different listings).

Spade & Archer has transformed the Seattle staging market. Each listing of mine they stage not only looks and feels impeccable; the homes sell for more than we anticipate. This is done through their art of storytelling without words. When you walk into a property staged by Spade & Archer, you immediately FEEL it. Their style is flexible for each property, they have an elevated level of service & process I appreciate and they are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! I feel confident leaving clients alone with them to discuss process and strategy. This empowers my clients and makes them feel more involved which they appreciate. I regularly receive calls from buyers and Brokers asking about my staging. I am so proud to showcase Spade & Archer's elevated design on each property. They have earned my trust, friendship and ongoing business. Thanks team!

The design professionals at Spade and Archer are second to none. I listed a 1959 home that had retained much of it's originality. . . . a time capsule, in effect. Jesse and his team knew just how to keep the furnishings soft, using an Arts and Crafts tone along with the modernism. I've had compliments galore at the open houses I've held, but most importantly from my clients, the sellers. They were thrilled and asked me to thank Jesse and crew for such a wonderful vision and a job well done. I will be using Spade and Archer again and again. Thank you!

I just walked into the home in SW Portland that Jesse and his team staged and I have to tell you, it is awesome. I am so impressed. I feel like they just went over the top with meeting our expectations. It is a million dollar home and I am just so impressed. I usually would not usually leave a message like this, but I just had to let you know what an awesome job Jesse and his team has done. They really just know how to follow through on our expectation and the quality we expect. It’s just amazing to come in and be awed at a project like this.

As a Portland Realtor I have urged numerous Sellers to hire Spade and Archer - all have been thrilled. I am writing to express 100% confidence and satisfaction with the services provided by Spade and Archer. Staging a vacant home is absolutely the best way to make sure it generates Buyer enthusiasm which translates to less days on market and a higher contract sales price. The design aesthetic of these VERY talented people is such that spaces are transformed to their most appealing and attractive essences. They are firm about how to proceed, and this can seem controlling, but, truly, clarity of vision is a quality I appreciate in a designer. If you are a Seller in their market areas, DO NOT HESITATE to engage them. You will be left in awe of what they achieve.

I have had the experience of being on both sides of Spade and Archer's work--we worked with them to stage our condo, and we also purchased a house that they staged. When we worked with Spade and Archer to sell our house, I thoroughly enjoyed the initial consultation--there is so much complicated psychology that goes into staging that I had never considered! The designers at Spade and Archer were prompt, professional, and truly detail-oriented. The entire process went off without a hitch, and the logistics were surprisingly simple for us. The work they did was beautiful, and we sold our house in three weeks and a whopping $60K over asking. Meanwhile, when we first walked into what is now our home, I remember feeling like this was really our space--I could easily imagine us in this dream house. I laughed to find out that of course Spade and Archer had staged the house, and was once again reminded why they are the absolute best in the business. Thank you for helping through these major life transitions, and making the experience of both buying and selling a home exciting, seamless, and fruitful. Working with Spade and Archer was the best money we have ever spent.

Professional and thorough. Impeccable design. Our house got tons of comments from realtors that walked through saying how perfectly it was staged. Staging helped my home look very appealing in photos which brought tons of buyers through. A great use of my money and I would highly recommend this company in particular. Anthony came by to do a free 1 hour consult, which was very helpful. I could pick and choose what I wanted to stage based on my budget and needs.

We had seen their work at another location in a house for sale and were blown away. When we got ready to put our house on the market, we asked our realtor (who had worked with them in the past) to put us in touch to stage the home. Basically, they transformed our home, I wish we had used them for a consultation beforehand! There is no doubt in my mind that our home showed ten times better than it would have with our furniture in it, and certainly much better than if it were vacant. It's important to note that I never actually met anyone from Spade and Archer in person, my job is extremely demanding, so they worked mainly through our realtor and I spoke with them by phone. They are complete professionals in every way. Only problem is I didn't get to thank them in person, only by phone! Highly highly highly recommended.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!! 1000% RECOMMEND! I stumbled across a Spade and Archer thanks to the facebook algorithms (thx!) and what a amazing discovery it has been. We have lived in our Tigard home for 15 years, but never really figured out how to use each room. Add two kids, and we had many rooms that were a hodge podge of stuff (somehow our dining room ended up being the kids playroom??). Enter Justin...prompt, professional, incredibly talented with impeccable tact and wisdom. After a one hour walkthru, he outlined a crisp vision for each room and great list of options for us to consider. He gave us so many insights on how to use the space for our family and our needs. Fast forward 8 weeks. Each room has a purpose. Each room has warmth. My life is much easier because everyone in the family has dedicated space for their stuff and it's easy to restore order now when people leave their stuff out. We swapped some light fixtures, bought timeless pieces of furniture and home goods (many used), but added great flow and character to the house, and Justin's team re-arranged for great usability and family time. LOVED the entire process!!! Loved that Justin knew where to spend money, and where to be frugal. Loved that there was no pressure. Loved that he wasn't the type of designer that felt everything had to be bought at a boutique. I didn't feel guilty for being cheap on some stuff.

Amazing professional services with the highest level of integrity. I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience it was getting my home staged and ready to put on the market. I had amazing advice and recommendations from Jason Curtis. He came to my home (arrived exactly on time), and he spent an hour with me. He told me about the three levels of services offered by Spade and Archer, and then he told me that I did not need any of them because my home really did not need that much to be ready. Nonetheless, he spent the hour, gave me a list of small things to change, and then he shook my hand and left. There was no charge for his help, and he offered his card in case I had any other questions to ask. I made most of the suggested changes, and they made a huge difference. I like what he suggested so much and the difference it made, that I was tempted not to list my home for sale after all! I did, however, put it on the market today with an incredible virtual tour in which my home looks stunning. I feel that Jason's help will lead to a quick sale. How refreshing to work with a staging company and design professionals who operate with integrity rather than a pushy, hard sell approach. I would also mention that both the realtor and the photographer were extremely impressed with what I accomplished with Jason's recommendations. From start to finish, Justin, Jason and the whole Spade and Archer team exceeded my expectations.

We have used Justin Riordan from Spade and Archer in a past redecoration of our home and just loved his suggestions and help. This time Justin helped us with our fireplace remodel and again we loved his assistance.

What's the old adage about getting what you pay for? My broker recommended them for a home I rebuilt from the foundation up in Multnomah Village. Ryan and Justin were a pleasure to work with throughout the process. Tough getting into their schedule as they are quite popular during the summer months, but well worth the wait. Received one offer in the week unstaged, two within 24 hours afterwards. Will be my "go to" service provider on future opportunities.

I use staging when presenting a client's home for sale, and recently after my clients moved out and took their furniture, we were left with a vacant townhome that people felt was too narrow. Enter Spade and Archer, and a house full of adorable staging. We had three offers within 16 days, and it sold for over list price. This is a dream scenario, the kind we tell our clients about when offering staging. Thank you Justin!

I have been practicing real estate in Portland for over 10 years. During this time I have had the opportunity to see and work with multiple staging professionals. That said, just this past fall I hired Spade and Archer to furnish and stage a million dollar, 4000 square foot home I designed and built. I am comfortable saying that not only was this one of the most impressive operations within the staging industry, but I can't think of another company I have hired in my time as a Realtor that has been more professional -- period. They took an amazing home and made it even better. Their commitment to their clients and their trade is without equal in my opinion. I can't imagine using another staging company moving forward.

Our company has worked with Spade and Archer for 4 years. Their professionalism, diligence, and attention to detail is second to none. Their home staging and design knowledge provide a finished project that will enhance the value of the home a customer is trying to sell. I would strongly urge any homeowner, builder, remodeler to utilize their services if a quick sale is the ultimate goal. Their work is distinctive, well conceived, and thorough. Anyone who works with Spade and Archer will not be disappointed.

Spade and Archer Thank you! I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Spade and Archer more than a dozen times. The professionalism, quality of communication and excellent service make for a winning combo. I refer them to my clients all the time (see the review from former client Kim Mathews). They always do beautiful work and achieve excellent results. I consider them my secret weapon to getting a house sold quickly and for top dollar. Its not rare for them to come on site to a house that's been sitting on the market for months then transform it and see it sell within days after. Highly recommended. No one in the Portland market touches the quality of design and service these guys do!

Working with Justin and his staff at Spade and Archer was a seamless, flawless and brilliant experience at every step. Justin made himself available to meet with us on a Saturday morning and was punctual to the minute. His walk through of the house was exceptionally thorough and afterwards he provided us with a list of improvements that reflected a balance between standard staging enhancements and specifics for our home. His recommendations made preparing our home for staging a very accessible process for us. All of his staff was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. It is really difficult to describe what it is like to have your home staged by Justin without sounding like you are gushing or exaggerating, but it is truly a stunning transformation. Your home will be completely re-visioned, and it is really fun to see stuff you may consider hum-drum showcased in a unique and beautiful way. There is no doubt in our minds that the staging by Spade and Archer helped our house sell both quickly and for above asking price. Final thoughts....follow ALL of Justin's recommendations. They are all worth it.

We used Spade and Archer in the fall 2010 to help us sell our house. The initial walk-through with was inspiring, we had some problem areas and they were really positive and gave us lots of tips. We had a bit of homework before the installation day, like painting and getting some minor repairs done. The day they came was so fun. They worked liked little bees, moving this here and that there, using a lot of what we already had and bringing other stuff from their warehouse. Our house looked so good that when it sold we asked them for design help on our new house.

We hired Spade and Archer to stage our house in NE Portland. They were smart, respectful, timely, and professional. They staged our house as if very stylish--but REAL--people lived there. We received an offer many thousands over the asking price in one day. Unfortunately, that buyer backed out for other reasons, but Spade and Archer's work helped sell our house again within a week. And the final buyers asked to buy Spade and Archer's furnishings. We are thrilled with them, and would happily have paid twice what they charged us. Do not attempt to sell your home without them.

I chose Spade and Archer to update the look of my home before putting it on the market this month. Creative director Justin Riordan was amazing. He toured my home proposing a few color changes in bathrooms as well as small projects that would help showcase my lovely older home. I knew my living room couches (which have survived 2 boys) were dated but as we are planning to downsize I do not want to purchase anything that will be unsuitable in our next home. Justin proposed renting new living room furniture as well as additional lighting. He provided detailed clear pricing and terms for staging my home with my things as well as the rented items. His team arrived 2 weeks ago and proceeded to rearrange my furniture, art work, and pottery, showcasing the scale and purpose of different rooms in my house. At the end of the day, while touring my house, I thought "I should have done this years ago - this layout makes so much sense!" One of the reasons I initially chose Spade and Archer is Justin has a degree in architecture with a focus on construction management. He was able to legitimately discuss such options as adding a sink in the master bedroom and building new entry gates to my garden. Using Spade and Archer took away the HUGE stress of making decisions of what looks best to show off my home. I learned selling a home is different than living in a home. Using this firm also saved me money as I was planning to purchase new pillows, lamps, and rugs. Justin has an uncanny ability to use what you have (grandma's chair, pottery I hadn't brought out in years) to help people see the rooms in your home as their own. We have been on the market about a week and feel confident that the services Spade and Archer provided will really make a difference in the successful selling of our house.

My house was on the market for a month and getting poor reviews, so I called Spade and Archer for help. Justin really is a "design guru", as other reviewers have mentioned here. He came to my home for a consultation and I followed his advice. It was mostly rearranging furniture and items we already had on hand, the only thing we ended up spending money on was changing the paint color in some rooms. Justin's advice worked - I had an offer on my place the next week. Big thumbs up for Spade and Archer!

I have used Spade and Archer for myself and for many of my clients. They nail Portland style, they have the ability to express a lifestyle and a story through their design work. Each home I have had them stage sells immediately for maximum dollar. You cant argue with results like that! Their systems and service are organized, professional and they always do what they say when they say it. Dead lines and delivering top customer service reflect on the job I am doing they make me look good every time! Beautiful work, top notch service and excellent results!

I highly recommend Spade and Archer's staging services. Our house never looked so amazing and we had an offer in 29 days! When we first met with their team, they told me I would likely be offended by their suggestions. Within an hour I was - it's kind of their job. We had to create an environment where a prospective buyer would walk into our house and say "I want to live here!", not I need a scrapbook studio too. I would highly recommend Stage and Archer to anyone seriously interested in selling their home in this market. Their team is truly amazing.

I love this firm so much! Best in town seriously I am a busy realtor and never thought stagers were worth the money but wow I even sometimes pay for it and as a holiday gift I just hired them to do my house. After staging over a half dozen homes- I can tell you there is no better way to present your home- not only to the market- But in my case for the holidays- I hope he can do my office next- Seriously the most talented skilled stager out there by far!!!!

Justin is a design guru. He has a great eye, is personable and friendly and not only helped us get better staging & design and color ideas but even saved us a ton on new furnishings by sharing his insights on where to get bargains. Best of all, his fees are better than you'd think. We love these guys!

I never thought I'd have someone in to help me with designing my home, but I'm so happy that I did. Justin listened to what we had to say about how we lived and did a marvelous job. We are very happy with how he pulled the whole thing together with just the furniture and accessories that we have.
