Our Story

Upstaged Denver bridges the gap between an empty space and a warm home. We have the power to help buyers see the potential in any room so that properties sell faster and for more than ever before. Our services and artistic vision exist only to help the sales process, never slow it down, and to make the selling process as streamlined and seamless as possible.

Upstaged Denver was predicated on a vision that staging a home does not have to be complicated or time-consuming. Our goal is to save homeowners, flippers, developers, and realtors time and money. Brianna and Michael have over 22 years in real estate sales and have flipped hundreds of homes. Through this experience they found that streamlining the staging process, similar to real estate photography, will remove a bottleneck when getting a home ready for sale. Our understanding of the importance of staging a property in order to get it sold for the highest and best amount created a natural evolution into the staging business. We realized that automating the staging process, while still creating the perfect stages were critical. Michael and Brianna teamed up with an amazing interior designer Amanda Wallace to start Upstaged Denver. They then tested this new concept on their own stages to ensure the process was perfected and have now brought what has worked wonders for them to the masses. Our goal is to provide a streamlined service paired with a visually stunning stage to get YOUR home sold!
