“As a real estate professional, Salles Interiors are my go-to stagers! Jessica and Amanda consistently do a fantastic, professional, stunning and on-point staging job for all properties me and my team introduce them to. They have a full-service approach with painters, cleaners, handymen, electricians etc... No job is too big or too small for them to handle. Their furnishings are luxurious, high in quality and always follow the story line we wish to create. I feel so fortunate to have them as a resource to help sell properties quickly and for the highest price. You won't be sorry should you use them!”
Larry Schier, Corcoran
“There is a reason I will only use Jessica and Amanda, that is because they never skip a beat with their work and it always is the best I've seen, every time I call them I am more and more impressed than the time before.
You guys are the best!
Brian Rice, Corcoran
“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Salles Interiors. They have a wonderful way of communicating their concepts not only to the property owners, but also to the agent. They have a wonderful eye, boundless talent and positive energy. I look forward to working with them on my next project.”
Kenneth Shusterman, Douglas Elliman
"A colleague of mine had a small studio apartment staged by Jessica and Amanda and it looked "just right", so I consulted with them about staging a 2300 sf duplex apartment in Brooklyn Heights. The owner's furniture was classic, but heavy and somewhat dated, so it did not accentuate the apartment's best features, light and space. They decluttered the space and brought in furniture, plants and art work that allowed the home's best features to stand out. Although we were in a challenging real estate market we found great buyers in a short period of time. I am confident that Jessica and Amanda's contribution in staging the apartment got us to the finish line."

“Jess and Amanda were AMAZING. I've never staged an apartment for sale before, but my broker recommended I do so and highly recommended the Salles sisters. I couldn't have been more pleased. They were direct in what I needed to do and competitively priced. I shopped around a bit and they were reasonable. I started and stopped the process from December to February. When I finally gave them the go ahead. They were accommodating to my schedule, rearranged some of their contractors and completely took care of the process for me in a few weeks. I had my apartment on the market in mid March and a full price offer before the first openhouse and ended up receiving multiple offers allowing me to pick the best qualified. From listing to closing all happened in under 3 months. This wouldn't have been possible without the amazing job they did staging my small 1 bedroom apt.
The challenges: 1st floor apartment (part of it sub street level), under 8ft ceilings, 15yr old renovation, limited light, pink marble bathroom, particle board fake granite countertops, dated backsplash, dated wood kitchen cabinets, facing Greenwich Street.
The solutions: Added a bunch of light, decluttered my apartment, lightened up the walls with a fresh coat of paint, retiled my bathroom walls in large format white subway tile and a light beige floor tile, new sink, new toilet, new vanity mirror, new countertops, new sink and faucet and very tasteful décor, accents, pictures and rugs. They had my kitchen cabinets painted white and tiled the backsplash in white subway tile.
My broker ended up getting a LOT of compliments on the design of the apartment.
The results: There are 2 other 1 bedroom apartments on the market in my building, the other 2 are on higher floors with gut renovations within the past 10 to 12 years and much higher ceilings. One went on just before mine and the other just after. They are BOTH still on the market, one went into contract just a couple of days ago, but at $30k less than my sales price. The other apartment has had to lower their sales price significantly and still has no offers.
I had listed my apartment a few years ago for $100k less than what I sold my apartment for and had 0 offers over a few month period. The Salles sisters renovations sold my apartment. They are definitely worthy of your consideration!”

“Professional, responsive, and great job with the staging. We got an offer in a week, in contract FSBO in 2 weeks! Unbelievable! Thanks guys!
The work was done quickly and affordably. Jess and Amanda met with us and determined the aesthetic, had us clear out about 1/2 of our belongings, and staged the rest beautifully. All the potential buyers loved the unit and commented on the colors, furniture, space, etc.”
“I truly believe you cannot do better than Jessica and Amanda. I had a very difficult situation -- an apartment vacated by an elderly relative that needed a complete renovation and junk accumulated over many years hauled away. Jessica and Amanda handled EVERYTHING efficiently, beautifully, and with no drama. And, best of all, their services more than paid for themselves as we obtained a much higher price for the apartment when it sold. Jessica and Amanda simply are the BEST.”
“I was referred to Salles Interiors by the broker selling my mother's apartment. The apartment had a "lived in" look and was a bit cluttered so we decided on a complete staging. Jessica and Amanda handled everything and I do mean everything. They brought in a mover to pack up and empty the apartment. A cleaning service to wash the windows and a painter to freshen strip wall paper and repaint the entire apartment. They redecorated a two bedroom unit from scratch in a matter of two weeks. Based on the quality of their work the broker actually raised the asking price! In addition to being complete professionals the ladies were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were very hands on as well and did most of the work themselves. I would HIGHLY recommend them for both staging and interior design services.”
“My husband and I hired Jessica and Amanda to stage our apartment to get it ready for sale. We found them based on the recommendation of our realtor.
As per our agreement, we gave them total control over our apartment, which meant that we had to put the majority of our own belongings into storage. Jessica and Amanda had the apartment painted and impeccably staged with their own furniture and props in less than a week. During that time, my husband and I vacated the apartment to let Salles interiors get their work done. Jessica and Amanda were very professional and did a wonderful job! (They even helped to take care of our pet turtle while we were out.) Our apartment sold for above the asking price one week after it was listed. I'm sure it would not have done so well without the help of Salles interiors. The only downside is that it was quite a hefty fee to have the apartment staged. The fee didn't include moving or cleaning- just the staging and the painting. I'm not sure how standard this is in terms of having an apartment staged (we didn't research other stagers in advance), but I was able to rationalize the cost when considering the overall profit on the sale of the apartment.”
Hunie Kwon, Douglas Elliman
“This is the 3rd time I've worked with Jessica and Amanda on a staging job and they were wonderful as usual. The property needed a serious re-do, and with their help we got it sold in less than 1 week- over the asking price! I would highly recommend them to any brokers looking for a solid stager or clients looking to sell. Just to add we are the #1 real estate team in the country so quality and execution means a lot to us when we prepare a property to sell.”
“Following staging by Jess and Amanda Salles, my condo received 4 offers within 10 days of the first open house. I attribute this in part to a frothy real estate market but mostly to the exquisite job Jess and Amanda did. From the outset, the Salles were a pleasure to work with. They told me exactly what changes to make to the apartment to prepare it for sale, and then offered up reliable, affordable vendors to do the work. Once minor renovations were complete they staged the apartment with nice, clean modern furniture & art within a few days. The outcome was wonderful; the condo looked better than I could have imagined. And it photographed well. Numerous brokers and potential buyers commented on the nice decor. I offer Salles Interiors my highest recommendation.”
Rhoda Dunn, Core
“Jessica and Amanda were hired by me to stage an apartment that I represented as a listing agent while I worked for The Corcoran Group. They provided white glove service on a beer budget. If you need a stager don't walk ..... run to them. Before the staging the apartment did not got any offers after being in the market for some time. After they staged the apartment we had multiple offers after the first open house. Love those Salles sisters. They are the best. They have great taste and they work at a lightening fast pace. Most importantly they are trustworthy and they deliver on their promises!!!!”
“I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Jessica and Amanda Salles over the past year and a half; they are truly a pleasure to work with. They are proficient designers bringing a discerning eye and talent to their work. Their spatial sense and knowledge of texture and color add a dimension that completes any room and/or apartment. They are time sensitive and will insure (within reason) that a project is done within a certain time frame.”
“Jessica Salles is an extraordinary interior designer. I hired her twice in the last four years to decorate two apartments. Both times, I was thrilled with the result: an apartment that is stylish, reflects my taste, and feels like home. Jess and Amanda are both very talented, creative, and a pleasure to work with. They are also very skilled at working within a client's budget and choosing furnishings and accessories that make the finished room look more expensive than the sum of the parts. I have recommended them to several friends, and every one has also been delighted to work with them, and with the beautiful job that they did.”
