Home staging is the art of transforming drab homes that just won’t sell into luxurious living spaces that have the potential to spark all-out bidding wars. The Stagers gives viewers behind-the-scenes access to the high-octane working lives of stagers from one of North America’s premier staging companies. High-drama Matthew Finlason or head-butting mother-daughter duo Maureen Powers and Bridget Savereux work towards selling the home as fast as possible for the most amount of money. From tips to tantrums to last-minute touches, each episode shows just how hard and fast stagers must work to transform a home from dated to designer.
