SEATTLE, WA – Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate is proud to announce its newest partnership with Ilaria Barion Design (IBD), the premiere virtual staging enterprise founded by New York City celebrity stager Ilaria Barion. Recognized for an extensive knowledge of the luxury real estate market, her firm combines superior staging expertise and high-end design with state-of-the-art digital implementation to virtually stage thousands of luxury properties around the world every year.
In 2005, after 17 years in international business development and retail consulting, Ilaria Barion established a physical home staging company that was immediately successful and quickly became one of the top home staging firms in Manhattan. In time, she saw the potential for ‘virtual’ home staging as a unique and less expensive way to enhance a property’s best attributes and minimize flaws, if any, while providing it with a dramatic edge to stand out from competition.
The process begins with a consultation to develop the most effective creative strategy to present the property. Ilaria and her team then move onto the staging design process including anything from cosmetic work to furniture placement, color palette and style. Finally, rather than a remodel, furniture rental and installation, the luxury home staging design is rendered digitally by highly-trained specialists for a strikingly photorealistic result.
“I couldn’t be more excited that Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate sought us out to be a preferred luxury virtual staging vendor for their network,” Ilaria Barion said of the new partnership. “Top real estate agents around the country have been trusting our firm for over a decade to make their most exclusive and expensive listings stand-out in this highly competitive market of luxury real estate. This new partnership allows us to continue to expand further into the network of premier brokers representing the finest luxury properties across the globe.”
As a partner, Ilaria Barion Design will enjoy placement on the award-winning website LuxuryRealEstate.com, alongside other network partners. Additionally, they will be a featured blogger on the LRE® Blog as well as listed as a partner in the Week in Review, LuxuryRealEstate.com’s e-newsletter that is sent to over 20,000 industry professionals every week. They will also have the option to sponsor and attend any of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate’s four luxury real estate conferences.
