It’s easier to bond with a new home when its sofas are topped with comfy throw pillows or its walls are decorated with poignant artwork. The design consultants at Jugo Designs understand this important emotional connection potential buyers must feel with their future abodes, leveraging it to stage homes and help them to sell quickly.
Some home stagings are as simple as half-day reshufflings of the sellers’ existing furnishings, adding a few accessories and subtracting a few squatting grandparents here and there. Others require two days’ worth of decor overhaul. Once new owners scoop up homes, the like-new staging furniture—including custom-designed couches and upholstery—goes back to Jugo’s showroom, where customers can snag it for up to 60% off retail prices.
ASD WaterWorks specializes in property restoration for residential and commercial clients, whether that means removing stains from carpet or repairing damage from flooding or fires. For carpet cleaning calls, the staff relies on truck-mounted steam-cleaning devices to eradicate dust and allergens. In emergency cases, technicians strive for a response time of less than an hour, a practice that allows them to mitigate potential damage and to throw away their 6-month day planner marked "Future Emergency Appointments."

When Branden Donley was in college, he set out with his push mower to earn some cash tidying lawns around the neighborhood. His friend Sam Johnson began pitching in, and though the two were just 18 and 19 years old, their success soon made them realize they could turn their small operation into a full-time business.
That was more than 20 years ago. Branden still runs the business, but today, he shares his love of creating beautiful yards with a staff of more than 40 people. The crew is dedicated to manicuring lawns with services that range from mowing grass and pulling weeds to complete landscaping overhauls. Rather than find a compatible bear to hibernate with during winter months, the crew turns its focus from greenery to snow removal, using its fleet of snowplow trucks to clear commercial parking lots, roads, and paths.
