I hired Fran Mendelsohn from DRAB to FAB to stage one of my model homes. Fran Mendelsohn met me out on the property, walked through the home, and the very next day came back with a wonderful price to do the job. No words can describe the amazing talent that she has. Her decor ideas along with price awareness turned a newly constructed house with a cold look into a loveable warm home to live in. She brought the project in on time, within budget, and with a look that drops your mouth with amazement when you walk in the home. Since the staging was complete, we have nothing but wonderful compliments from potential buyers on the model home. And, thanks to Fran and DRAB to FAB Stagers, our sales are going very well. If you need a responsible, talented stager then Fran Mendelsohn would be perfect for you. If you want your house sold, then use Fran to stage your property.

I had a home listed for several months and it wasn’t moving. Although I thought the home looked great, I decided to let Fran Mendelsohn from DRAB to FAB stage it. I figured I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. Fran showed us what needed to be done to get the house sold. She tagged all the items that needed to be removed and made a list of the things that needed to be fixed. Once we did our homework, Fran took it from there. She literally transformed the home into one that was the envy of other listing agents. As it turned out….I did have everything to gain. Who would have thought that a house that had been sitting on the market several months, would end up getting several offers. The house sold in 8 days for $3000 above asking price!

Margie Ross, Realtor

My home was on the market for several months prior to contacting Fran Mendelsohn from DRAB to FAB. Fran did a walk-through of my home taking photos and measurements. She then provided me with a proposal that would dramatically transform my home into one that would appeal to the buying public. I was very impressed with Fran’s knowledge and design skills. Fran did an amazing job staging my home. It sold in 5 days and I got my asking price! Fran is brilliant…I would recommend her to anyone who needs to sell their home or who just wants their home re-decorated.

Judy Letvin, homeowner, The Villages, FL

Fran Mendelsohn from Drab to Fab did an amazing job staging my home for my open house. Anyone trying to sell their home on their own, would absolutely benefit from hiring Fran to stage their home. Before Fran came along, my house was really DRAB and when she finished…..FAB was an understatement. My home had been on the market for many months prior to my decision to have it staged. After my open house, I had several offers and got more than my asking price. I wish I had hired Fran BEFORE I put the house on the market–it would have saved me a lot of time, energy and money.

Raymond Jones, homeowner, The Villages, FL

I’ve known Fran Mendelsohn for many years. When I purchased my summer home, I knew I needed Fran to do the interior decorating. Fran has a unique ability to create warmth, style, and class by choosing the perfect pieces of furniture and accessories. When Fran was done, my summer home became the most peaceful and romantic retreat. Spending my weekends and vacations in my newly decorated home felt like going to the most luxurious resort and spa! Thanks, Fran, for a job perfectly done!

Stephanie Gelber, homeowner, Boca Raton

I hired Fran Mendelsohn of DRAB to FAB to decorate two of my model homes. Fran has an incredible sense of style and does amazing things with color. She chose just the right furniture, art work and accessories… making the home warm and comfortable. Fran is truly a professional! She personally attended to every detail and finished the homes quickly and within my budget. Working with Fran was a pleasure from beginning to end. I WOULD RECOMMEND FRAN WITHOUT RESERVATION.

Jay Greenberg, Builder, Orlando, FL

I just moved into a new home and didn’t know where to begin. Fran Mendelsohn from DRAB to FAB came over, asked my husband and I several questions about our likes and dislikes, budget, and time frame. Fran took many pictures of the areas that needed help and then she jumped right in to get started. We had some furniture, but we had it placed in an unappealing way. Fran knew exactly what to do with the furniture. She got drapes, accessories, recommended paint colors, area rugs, etc. and within 1-2 weeks our house was transformed into a magnificent, warm & inviting home. Fran was so easy to work with…what could have been stressful, was an absolute pleasure. It seemed like she had the capacity to get into our heads and know precisely what we wanted!!! It was exactly what we were hoping for—comfortable, functional and absolutely gorgeous! I wake up each day and can’t believe my eyes! If your home needs a facelift and you want a true professional at a reasonable price, call Fran! It will be the best phone call you ever make!

Sarah Lawrence, homeowner, The Villages, FL

My husband and I hired Fran to help us stage our home to sell. Fran was able to come to our house and make simple suggestions that I would never have thought of. She made suggestions on how to make our home “pop” in internet photos. I am so pleased with the finished product. Fran is the type of person who makes you feel as though you’ve known her your entire life. She’s warm, friendly and has excellent design skills. In this day and age when good customer service is hard to find, Fran is a gem! She has exemplary customer service and goes above and beyond anyone’s expectations. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about selling their house or just wants their home to look wonderful. Thanks, Fran for all of your help! I know our house will sell fast!

Kelli Johnson, Homeowner, The Villages, FL

Thanks for the beautiful work you did in our living room, kitchen and bathroom areas! We couldn’t be more pleased with the results! Thank you for turning our house into a home!

Jose & Jill Valdez, Homeowners, The Villages, FL

Fran’s skill and creativity allow her to quickly transform a room and work magic on any budget! She has a great sense of style and I can’t believe the results. My home is updated and beautiful and I love it.

Monica Prather, Homeowner

I was getting my home ready to put on the market and I know it needed a lot of work so I contacted Fran Mendelsohn from DRAB to FAB. I love what Fran did to my home! It finally looks like it should look — beautiful. Fran made the most of my own furnishings and was able to do the rest on a limited budget. Thank you Fran!

Diane Blaising, Homeowner

OUR HOME SOLD IN TWO DAYS FOR OUR ASKING PRICE!! My husband and I were just delighted to work with Fran. She is so pleasant and professional, and her design sense is wonderful! I wish we had known about her when we moved into our home because her suggestions for placement of furniture really opened up our house and made it look top notch. She has a great sense of how to balance a room and make it feel uncluttered and relaxing to be in. She has great suggestions to use things you already have to decorate rooms so that you don’t have to spend a lot of money, and that was really helpful to us. We had our house on the market for 3 days, and after our first showing we received a great offer on it!! We will be moving to California, and when we eventually get a house out there I will definitely be sending pictures to Fran to ask for her design advice, and I’m sure that with her help our future home will look as great as our current home does now.

Elizabeth & Mike, Homeowners

I can not say enough about Fran’s level of professionalism and customer service. She has an excellent eye for color, coordination and the “proper” placement of furniture. Prospective buyers commented that the staging was perfect and unlike others was not “overdone.” As a result of Fran’s work we sold our home in 17 days. We had not had a meaningful offer in 7 months. The ultimate compliment came when the folks who purchased our home asked for her number to help them with their decorating needs. Staging is truly not an option in these difficult times! When you decide to move forward, Fran is the person you need to help ensure your success in selling your home. Michael Sullivan

Michael Sullivan, Homeowner

Presentation of a home is vital in marketing-through pictures as well as by appointment. Fran Mendelsohn is the talent to stage and present a home at it’s best. She knows how to arrange and decorate a room to enhance it’s features. A real estate agent wants a prospective buyer to “see” the house and not the decorations. Fran is perfect in bringing out the best in a room, drawing the eye to appreciate the home. Every real estate agent needs recommendations from Fran, from a simple arrangement to full furnishings – she has the resources and the talent to accentuate the best….
