Margaret OsciliaWe consider it a privilege to provide competent and professional home staging and remodeling services. As real estate investors for over 20 years and licensed contractors, we’ve learned not only how to make homes look beautiful, but also how to best market homes through booming and slow markets.

Prior to staging our investment properties, we couldn’t understand why people sometimes couldn’t see the charm of our vacant homes. By staging these homes, they became warm and inviting–easier to sell. Seeing our quality work and attention to detail, realtors approached us and asked us to provide our services to their clients. Thus, Creative Concepts – Home Staging and Contracting was born. Thousands of properties later we are the largest staging company in the Salem/Corvallis area.

Not only do we understand interior design and home staging concepts, we work hard to make them affordable to investors, builders, and home sellers – making sure that our proposals are a sound investment.


I had read up on home staging, and knew it was an important piece of the selling process. Still, I needed more help than could be found in books. Margaret came over and walked through our home, giving us invaluable pointers and tips. I was able to implement most of what she suggested. Right before we put the house on the market, she came through with a few pieces to “ice the cake.”

Imagine my surprise when we had a great offer two days after the house was put on the market (in 2011). I know that the staging did the trick. I am so grateful to have had Margaret’s services. I’d say it was easily the best money we spent in the home selling process. Thank you, Margaret!

I thought the paint color you chose was sheer genius. Really looks good.

It has been my pleasure to work with Margaret and Creative Concepts to supply staging services for Windermere Relocation’s vacant properties. Their professionalism and service is “bar none”. I believe their staging captures the “essence” of the property and definitely adds “value” to the presentation, both in person and through photography. I would highly recommend Creative Concepts services to anyone.

Lost and overwhelmed is where we were when we met Margaret Oscilia from Creative Concepts. Within a few days and for a very reasonable fee, she gave us an outline (map) of what needed to be done to sell our house in a very difficult market.

We had 69 houses within a three-mile radius competing against us. She reviewed our house, she wrote a most excellent report and step by step – the rest was history. We had the house on the market for months before Margaret’s report and got an offer soon after completing her comprehensive and affordable list of “things to do”. Though we knew that things needed to be done, Margaret made her recommendations clear, concise and easy to follow. Joe efficiently made one repair for us, too.

We have continued thanks for Creative Concepts in their expertise, guidance and work ethics. The Oscilias are good people and Creative Concepts is a treasured company with which to do business!
