My name is Michelle Minch and I am the owner of Moving Mountains Design, a Los Angeles home staging and interior design company based in Pasadena, CA.
I began my career in design as a Stylist and Visual Merchandiser for Commercials, Music Videos, Television and Feature Films. Home Staging and Interior Design are a natural progression for me, allowing me to use my visual merchandising skills and years of design, marketing and management experience to create appealing and comfortable one-of-a-kind interiors that help sell homes.
My home staging and interior design work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Green Builder, Sunset Magazine, Los Angeles Weekly and many other national and international publications.
The stagers and assistant stagers at Moving Mountains Design are all carefully trained professional stagers and designers. Each stager is a specialist in staging different areas of a home – bathrooms, bedrooms, offices, kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms and family rooms. We work in concert as a team, and individually, to achieve the best possible outcome for preparing your home for sale.
Curb appeal now starts on the internet. The National Association of Realtors estimates that more than 90% of people shop on the internet for their next home. This is where first impressions are made, and as we all know, you have only one chance to make a memorable first impression. After home staging, Moving Mountains Design will provide professional quality photographs of your home to use in online and print marketing*. These high quality, attention grabbing photos will help create interest in your home with potential buyers and other Real Estate Agents. If you don’t have appealing photos of your home on the MLS, your home may be dismissed with the click of a mouse.
Home staging by Moving Mountains Design is a crucial ingredient in the recipe for a successful sale.
The old maxim “location, location, location” as the only thing that matters when selling a home, no longer applies. The new maxim is “price, condition, location”. Buyers want a well priced home in a good location that looks move in ready. While we have no control over price or location, the home stagers at Moving Mountains Design know how to add perceived value to a home and give it that magazine photo look in a cost effective manner. Moving Mountains Design will accentuate the finest features of the home, creating a sense of warm welcome, comfort and a pleasing lifestyle. With desirable details highlighted, flaws are less apparent and buyers will be able to imagine how they will enjoy living in the home and the value it will add to their lives.

You do a tremendous job. I feel like you become my partner in getting homes sold … you do more than stage a home! Both properties were vacant, empty houses, and in one case, no one knew the room off the entry parlor was the master suite … it was confusing, until you did your magic.
Michelle was wonderful to work with… very nice, easy to reach. She had the perfect idea for our budget, which was to stage most but not all of the rooms. Her staging made our house look and photograph beautifully. I believe it was a key factor in our house selling quickly and at a price over the asking. Our buyer and his realtor both brought up the appeal of the staging during our walk-through.
I thought our house was nice. I never knew it could look so good! It’s fantastic. I hope this will help it sell quickly. I’d buy the house all over again simply based on how great these pictures look. Thank you Michelle! (The house went into escrow 2 weeks after going on the market)
