I would have no hesitation in recommending Sharpen Up to style a property for sale. The whole service was professional, courteous, efficient, and hassle-free, with a high level of attention to detail, and most importantly, the house looked great! I sold our property after only 10 days on the market and well above the asking price. The majority of people attending the open inspections commented, unsolicited, on how well-presented the house was, and the purchasers even enquired about whether the furniture could be sold with the house which I think speaks volumes about how nice it looked.
Being a long-term property investor, as well as a licensed Real Estate salesperson, I know first-hand how important presentation is to the overall demand for a property, because to a large extent it’s an ‘emotional purchase’, and in my opinion, I would not have sold our property as quickly, or for as much, had it not been furnished/styled the way it was.

I would highly recommend Judy and her team at Sharpen Up Property styling. They refreshed and styled our property in a timely fashion, and were in close contact with our real estate agent throughout the whole process. Our home sold within 3 days of being on the market, prior to the first open inspection! It was an amazing result.
My association with Judy and Adam, the Owners of Sharpen UP have been very fruitful and successful. I would like to congratulate them for their professional, prompt and reliable level of service they continuously provide their clients. I have worked in conjunction with them for over a year and find them very obliging and most meticulous in their field of work.
They have really helped me and my clients achieve a very good result on their homes, both new and old. Judy's stylist skill and her attention to detail has really helped not only me as a Real Estate Agent but more so for achieving a great result in the quickest possible time for my vendors.
We receive positive comments from the prospective purchasers that come through the opens, and results show at the end of the day. Styling does give the home a different dimension and entices the purchasers to put their ideas in a very clear perspective.
As a point of difference, and if you want to achieve a great result with less stress I would fully recommend Sharpen UP, the cost is minimal in the scheme of things.
Some of my success stories with Sharpen UP:
- 1965 built home at Campbelltown, sold first week above asking price, 4 genuine offers
- Brand new home at Campbelltown, sold first week, above asking price
- Brand new home at Campbelltown, sold second week at asking price
- Brand new home at Firle, sold second week above asking price, 3 genuine offers
I highly recommend Judy and Adam for all your property styling.

For the purpose of selling our investment property and after some hesitation my husband Gregg and I decided to furnish our empty property at Battams Road, Marden.
Sharpen UP Property Services were recommended to us and after meeting with Judy Sharp, who was able to make a very clear assessment of the furniture hire needs, unique to our property, we decided to engage their services.
Not only did the style of furniture enhance each room but was also presented in a way that enabled a potential buyer to imagine how it would also work for them, even in tricky space situations.
It is in our opinion that after the property was furnished and presented for sale, the photos that appeared on the internet helped our property to stand out and ultimately sell within a timely period.
We recognise that the internet plays a powerful part and presenting the property as furnished in a desirable manner as opposed to showing photos of empty rooms was critical in the sale of our property.
Thank you for your professionalism and expertise, we would not hesitate in recommending your services.

Here at Clairville Homes we undertook the professional services of “Sharpen UP Property Services” when selling 3 of our properties and were amazed with the results.
We were most impressed with Sharpen Up’s professionalism, courtesy and constant contact of arrangements of time frames. We found the whole process to be very easy and seamless. “Sharpen UP Property Services” provided a complimentary style and colour palette for the home furnishings and the end result was very chic and gave our properties that edge. Our properties sold within short time frames with everyone remarking favourable on the décor.
Our homes would not have sold so quickly if it hadn’t been for the beautiful furniture and creative touch by Judy at Sharpen Up.
It has been a pleasure to deal with Sharpen Up and her Team and we would highly recommend their services to anyone wanting to give their homes that “Wow” factor.

Just thought I would send you a quick email to say thanks for all your help with fitting our house at 2 Flavel Place Woodforde with furniture. I must admit I was a bit hesitant when our agent (Angelo D'Addona from Ray White Glynde) suggested we hire furniture to assist with selling our house.
However, after our initial meeting I was convinced it was worth a try and did not regret that decision. The whole process was straight forward and carried out in a professional and efficient manner - from the very beginning when you came back to us with a prompt quote to the very end when the house was sold and the furniture was removed.
We are so pleased to have achieved the result we wanted and so quickly. I would certainly recommend your company to anyone wanting to hire furniture to assist in the sale of a property.
Thanks again for all your assistance.

We contacted Sharpen UP to help in the sale of a residential property by “staging” the premises. This is a new residence and after explaining the situation Judy and Adam were quite keen to take on the challenge of attempting something new.
They provided professional and helpful information and from an empty interior, they transformed the premises into a “living and breathing” home that contained the WOW factor.The agent was over the moon and this was reflected in the eyes of the prospective buyers. We only required one service contract before an interested party made an offer.We are more than pleased with the service provided by Sharpen UP and would gladly recommend them to anyone wishing to sell their property; be it new or established. We have also learnt a lot about interior design, simply by talking to Judy and Adam.
Sharpen UP definitely helped in the sale of our property.
