When mega-stars like Halle Berry, Bob Dylan, Harrison Ford, Ben Stiller, Dennis Quaid, Amy Adams and other members of the Hollywood elite put their estate properties on the market, they all had the same goal. They wanted to sell quickly at the highest price the market could bear. To make that happen, they turned to Meridith Baer, the grande dame of luxury home staging. Baer and her team at Meridith Baer & Associates have been staging ultra-luxurious homes since 1998. Their approach works, as evidenced by the fact that Baer’s business has doubled nearly every year since it was founded. Homes staged by the firm have been purchased by the likes of Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Sean Combs, Harrison Ford and others.
Based on their exclusive arrangement with Meridith Baer’s firm, Premier Estate Properties, headquartered in Boca Raton, is the only brokerage firm positioned to offer Meridith Baer’s renowned staging services in Florida.
Baer’s recent transformation in the Boca Raton market is a meticulously crafted British West Indies-style Intracoastal estate. This gated Intracoastal compound built in 2007 fronts 222± feet of deepwater shoreline with dockage for multiple mega-yachts, minutes from the ocean inlet. Introduced by a winding shellstone-embedded drive, the sweeping 1.62± acre grounds are cloaked in a canopy of tropical trees. An Impressive architectural statement, the British West Indies-inspired residence opens to classic verandahs and balconies with Chippendale balustrades. Swaying coconut palms embrace coquina-clad waterfront patios which encompass a spectacular courtyard featuring a lagoon-style pebble-finish pool with waterfalls, spa and beach area. The estate is being offered through Premier Estate Properties, which only presents properties exclusively in excess of one million dollars with offices on the east and west coast of Florida.
“Meridith’s staging techniques give visitors the luxury they expect in an estate residence of this stature along with just enough eccentric elements that are totally unexpected,” added Broker/Owner Carmen D’Angelo. “A high-end Los Angeles real estate agent once said that Meredith’s approach leaves buyers feeling comfortable, excited by how they envision the owner living in the home and feeling they’d love to live here. Meridith’s look conveys the sense that someone well-traveled and sophisticated really does live here. That sense of livability and place is important to buyers.”
Baer has completed several staging projects in Boca Raton, Highland Beach, and Fort Lauderdale which provides a myriad of possibilities for her signature mix of antiques, custom-made furniture and eccentric touches. Baer’s team is known for its uncanny ability to hand-select furnishings and objects that are exactly what visitors would own if they lived in the home. The selections are made from the firm’s 135,000 square feet warehouse and include furniture, art, books, silverware and touches of ready-made character – everything needed to bring a lived-in, cozy feeling to what are typically large spaces. What Baer doesn’t have, her staff of 70, including decorators, movers, carpenters and upholsterers, will make or find.
“Providing exclusive access to the home staging services of a firm with the extraordinary performance history that Meridith Baer & Associates possesses is a value-added service we are very pleased to offer our clients,” said Broker/Owner Gerard Liguori. “It is a service that will further position our clients for success and distinguish them from other sellers in the high-end real estate market.”
