Ron and I were a little apprehensive when we first decided to give Ideal Homes a try, not knowing what to expect.
Clifford came in and walked around our house and in one day came up with a vision and we were able to turn a good house into a great house for sale. He definitely does have a talent for his work. Professional yet friendly.
His expertise in staging allowed us to sell our home in just one day for more than the asking price. I honestly believe we would not have had that quick success without him.
Many prospective buyers said that they had looked at houses similar to ours but ours seemed a lot larger and pulled together – all due to Clifford’s expertise in his field.
We learned a lot from Clifford in just a few days. We are seriously considering asking him to come to our new home to set it up.
I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home quickly and at an excellent price.
My goal was to sell my home within four weeks for the maximum price possible. I contacted Ideal Homes to assess my home and make recommendations to enhance it's sellability. In a matter of a couple of days, Clifford Blackmore and his staff came up with a plan to redecorate, add furniture and create a basement recreation room that transformed my home from a very basically decorated house with some empty rooms and little atmosphere to a beautifully furnished and decorated home full of atmosphere that potential buyers could feel very comfortable imagining themselves in. My home sold within two weeks at a price I was very happy with. I am certain that my home would not have sold as quickly nor at the price it did if it had not been for the efforts and creativity of Clifford and his staff. I would highly recommend you give Ideal Homes a call to see what they can do for you.

Clifford, thank you for your expert advice and recommendations in helping us get our home ready for resale. We found our buyer in the very first weekend of showings after we opened our doors for viewings. Your knowledge of potential buyers and approach to marketing allowed us to sell our home quickly and for a good price.
When we met our agent – Paul Rushforth, he mentioned that you would be available to give us tips on how best to present our home. After speaking with you, you mentioned it would take about 2 hours for the initial consultation. I thought you would be in and out in 30 minutes because our home was already perfect. As it turned out, we took at least 2 ½ hours to discuss all our ideas; what to move around; what to replace and where to purchase the “fluff” for the house.
I admit we were not the easiest of clients. We were facing a personal tragedy and found it hard to deal with our grief and all that was required to fluff our home. We are practical people and all the mechanical and practical things had recently been done on our energy efficient home. The many upgrades we did over the years should have been enough. We now understand they weren’t. Buyers want the “wow factor” in each room.
After finding the energy, courage and resources to do the fluff and rearrange our furnishings, we were pleased with what we had accomplished. We truly believe you helped us put our home in a better light for potential buyers to pick our home over others. This was proven as we sold our home in mid December in the first week of showings. Your tips encouraged the buyer to see our home as their home. We know they made the right choice.
Thank you for your expertise, patience, support and understanding. We highly recommend your services to anyone thinking of selling their home.

When my spouse and I bought our first home we thought it was perfect. However, 10 years and three children later we realized we needed more space and decided to put our home up for sale. Faced with the daunting task of getting our home ready to sell we weren’t quite sure where to concentrate our efforts or finances. We had already placed a substantial down payment on a new home that was being built and had a limited budget to spend on preparing this home to sell. Our real estate agent, Chris Rhodes, recommended we consult with Clifford Blackmore of Ideal Homes and aim to have our house ready for the market within a couple of weeks.
Clifford has a friendly, down to earth approach, yet his professionalism and vision turned our home into one that showed like a model home. With Clifford’s advice we concentrated our efforts on updating our kitchen and bathrooms and within two weeks our home had a new and modern feel to it. With rental furnishings and décor accessories along with his home staging skills he enhanced the flow and décor of our entire house.
We were amazed with the results and what was even more amazing was that we received an impressive offer after only 2 days of showing our house. Along with the quick sale we were able to recoup our investment in staging the house and more.
We highly recommend Ideal Homes to anyone thinking of selling their home and would certainly use their services again in the future. If selling your home quickly and for a good price is important to you, then Clifford Blackmore and his Team at Ideal Homes offer the services you need.
Thanks again Clifford.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your staging services to help us with the sale of our property.
He cost of staging a property is considerable, therefore it was a bold decision to invest the money not knowing for sure what the results would be. Once we committed, Ideal Homes made us feel very good throughout the whole process. You have gone over and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the experience was successful for us.
All comments received during showings were very positive and we believe that staging the property was one of the best things we could have done. Not only do we believe that it helped sell the property quickly, we also believe that we also regained our investment made in staging and more.
Thank you very much and we look forward to working with you in the future. We strongly recommend your services to anyone selling a property.

When we selected a real estate agent to sell our home, he suggested Clifford Blackmore of Ideal Homes to assist us with preparing our home for sale. Clifford assessed our home and immediately gave us a verbal report followed by a written list of recommendations. He discussed the areas of strengths and weaknesses but focused on areas that needed improvement in order to appeal to a broad range of prospective buyers.
We had lived in our home for 18 years and although it was de-cluttered, clean and with many room recently painted, Clifford took it to the next level. We implemented most of Clifford’s recommendations and consequently sold our home very quickly and for the price we wanted.
Clifford had a vision for our home that integrated our own belongings as well as adding a few updated furnishings and décor accessories. He maximized the function of each room and ensure that the flow throughout the house would accommodate buyers. Clifford was open, honest, willing to listen to our opinions and had a wonderful sense of humor. He used diplomacy and sensitivity when making recommendations and showed respect for our personalities and concerns.
Clifford was flexible and always available for questions. Most important, Clifford was willing to work closely with us in a short period of time and under great pressure.
For anyone wanting to sell their home quickly and for a good price, we strongly recommend using the services of Ideal Homes.

Clifford was referred to my husband and I by our agent, Anna Turner. Our house had been on the market for 2 months and although we had a number of showings no one had shown any interest in making an offer.
Clifford and his Team worked well together and were very pleasant to deal with. Our house sold within a week of completion of their work and for a price my husband and I were both pleased with.

This is a letter of appreciation to Clifford Blackmore of Ideal Homes for his expertise in the field of making a home more comfortable and appealing to prospective purchasers.
To give you some information on my personal experience with Ideal Homes I would like to start with stating that our home was up for sale in excess of 3 months with no end in sight. After applying his recommendations we were able to sell our home within two weeks.
Looking back the only thing that I would do different would be to acquire the expertise of Ideal Homes prior to putting my home on the market.
Again, Clifford I would like to give my gratefulness for all your help in selling our home.
