Any real estate agent will tell you that the top three most important things in a house are “location, location, location” in that order. And sure, this Caruth Meadows ranch on East University has a location that many buyers dream about. But it is so much more than that. 

What stands out about 6335 E. University has a lot to do with the renovation. It’s just plain flawless.

“Not all renovations are created equal, and as a home staging company, we’re sometimes called in to ‘fix’ a challenge that could have been avoided prior to listing had the reno been thought out carefully prior to opening walls willy nilly,” said Karen Otto of Homestar Staging. “With a Kettering Ideas project, that’s never the case!”

Otto is the person responsible for the magazine-worthy interior decor of this incredible listing from Jacqui Bloomquist of Coldwell Banker Apex Realtors.  Otto already had a great base to work with, as Bloomquist notes that this home is practically brand new.
